I take ativan (lorazepam) for an anxiety disorder. I've heard it helps with some opiate withdrawal symptoms. How much should I take to relieve the symptoms?
Need to ask your Dr.: HealthTap is not used for treatment of individual patients, and something like the treatment of an addiction needs to be done through a one on one evaluation with a health care provider who you develop a relationship with. The continuity of care as well as an individual treatment plan will be developed personally for your withdraw symptoms in a well coordinated medical plan. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

What's the length of physical withdrawal symptoms from heroin, and which is worse-heroin, suboxone, of methadone-in terms of withdrawal duration and intensity?
There is no 1 answer: because there is enormous variability between people and all of these opioids (and others). However, in general heroin and other short-acting drugs produce a 5-10 day acute withdrawal, usually worst at 24-72 hours and is VERY severe&then improves, but a post-acute withdrawal which is milder but can last months. Buprenorphine is milder than methadone;both peak at 72 hours but can last many weeks. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Don't stop abruptly: Stopping calcium channel blockers, particularly Nifedipine suddenly can not only cause withdrawal or "rebound" symptoms, it can dangerously elevate blood pressure and pulse to where it can cause harm.

DEPENDS ON SYMPTOM: In an otherwise healthy patient, whose dose has been gradually reduced prior to discontinuing, symptoms are usually mild and "self-limiting". Two to four weeks is common.

Stopped taking Zyprexa (olanzapine) 0.625mg two days ago and was wondering how long it would take to notice withdrawal symptoms?
Never: Olanzapine has no true withdrawal symptoms. If it did, you would be at a sufficiently low dose that you wouldn't experience them. But you may experience a return of the symptoms that olanzapine was treating, and this could happen immediately, or any day for a couple of months, unless there is an alternative treatment for those symptoms. ...Read more

How to taper off 10 days of 0.25mg xanax (alprazolam).Taking ½ of 0.25 for 6 days but getting withdrawal symptoms. Should i go up to ¾ of 0.25 mg first. How long?
How to stop xanax (alprazolam): The withdrawal from xanax (alprazolam) is difficult and can take weeks. You can either convert to a long acting benzo or substitute xanax (alprazolam) with an antiseizure medication (phenobarbital), which is then slowly tapered. This is an old method, probably the best, but must be done under medical supervision. Xanax (alprazolam) has a short action that makes it very difficult to taper. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
