Oh, OK! Neurontin does NOT help with twitching and jerking! I did not know this. Or, if I did, I forgot. I guess I thought that since it was an antiseizure drug it would help. Benzo's can help with twitching? I did not know. I took .25 Klonopin and it did not help. I have some lorazepam - I guess I ...

Fidgetboy - Thanks for your feedback and for taking the time to look at my problem. I am not taking reboxitine, however . .. there are a couple of conversations going on in this thread and you may have confused me with someone else's post. I regularly take Nexium and Methadone. I was really convince...

That is so great. I am glad to hear you had a good experience at the ER.

I did have to go to the ER after an allergic reaction to an iron infusion in October and when I told them I could not tolerate benedryl they gave me prednisone instead, but that was fairly easy to do.

That is a fear of mine, too, that I will accidentally be given benedryl or something that is complete torture. Actually, I am afraid of beig in the hospital at all, because they take away your meds when you are there and will only let you have meds that they dispense and that have been ordered at th...

Thanks for the feedback Ann and Zach. So far, I haven't found that zofran aggravates my legs. REGLAN does! Reglan is terrible for the RLS. The provigil does have a tendency to aggravate them. I'm actually more concerned that the symptoms I am having are side effects from methadone, not from withdraw...

Spiticus - I agree with Woodsie - that doesn't sound too good I'd call the doc too. I have been having very unpleasant side effects - as I said I feel constantly like I just stepped off a carnival ride. Can't get the neuro to call me back for anything thoug. Good luck to you and tell us how it goes

I think that a big part of my attack on Monday night was due to gastrointestinal problems, and maybe the milk of magnesia. Yes, I regret that I did not ask the neuro what would happen with the methadone if the IVF did not work. He did say that the upper limit on the methadone dose would not likely b...

I don't see him again until May 5 or may 12. I can't remember (I better find out!) He is fairly available by phone. I can usually get a call back within 1, 2, or 3 days. It is really difficult because usually no one answers the phone - you just get a voice mail, leave a message, and hope that someon...

Thank you so much. I have a feeling that the next few weeks are going to suck, going thru yet another withdrawal, but I have no choice. Since last night I am constantly feeling like I just stepped off a carnival ride. How do you shave 1 mg off a 5 mg pill that has a break in it for 2.5 mg?break? Do ...

Who is Josh? I have not encountered him yet. I had taken 5 mg at 5pm. Then at 8pm I was due to take 7.5 mg but only took 5. Then at 10 pm I took the milk of magnesia. I have taken milk of magnesia and methadone on this schedule many times in the past month and never had a problem. The pharmacist sai...

Last night I took a quarter of the smallest klonopin dose that you can get from a pharmacy. I eventually did fall asleep again. OK, I'm feeling well enough to function at work. Strange thing: I can stay awake do drive if I eat someting while I am drifving. If I don't, my eyes cross, then they slam s...
