Re: Xanax and RLS-WED

Well you can try taking Xanax for a longer period but I have to "warn" you. Many people get severe problems when they take Benzodiazepine over a longer period. For example symptoms like memory problems, depression, addiction and paradox reactions like more pain and anxiety are common. Tole...

Withdraw from Opioids...

I am forced to withdraw from the Opioids. My brain simply doesn't want them anymore. I sleep up 18 hours a day, I have no motivation, no energy, no interests. I just lie in bed and watch stupid TV Shows when I am not sleeping. At first I thought it is a Depression but we were able to exclude this as...

Taking high potent short acting Benzodiazepines daily?

The past weeks have been a disaster! I wanted to try Lyrica (Pregabalin) again. It first I looked like I benefit but it turned to be a disaster. At the end I was augmenting like hell, had more pain then ever finally made the decision to stop it. The problem is: I need opioids but they are stimulatin...

Re: zopiclone (imovane)

I had Zopiclone in the past. It works like Benzodiazepines. For me these drugs have negative long term effects (bad mood, anxiety, physical dependence) so I only use them for a short time when I need a temp. replacement for my Pramipexol. (to avoid severe augmentation).

Re: How do you feel about taking Opioids for RLS?

I have no feeling associated with taking Opioids. The only thing that happens and ever happened was that my symptoms are highly reduced or go away completely. At the beginning I also was dealing with some side effects like nausea and it some weeks until I was able to take the dose of Oxycodone that ...

Re: Switching from Oxycodone to Hydromorphone ...

It's interesting that the tramadol does anything for the pain. I also found different drugs helped in different ways. Tramadol does a lot for the pain. It was the first opioid I had for RLS. Started with 50 mg and was on 400 mg the 3rd day and it wasn't enough. So my Doc switched me to Oxycodone bu...

Re: Areas and narcotics

I live in Germany. Here we have a special narcotic law and special narcotic prescriptions. We don't have something like 30 days prescription or the possibility to get a refill from the pharmacy. But we don't have a real limit how much a Doctor can prescribe. If you are a Doctor you can prescribe nar...

Re: Switching from Oxycodone to Hydromorphone ...

So this is my Hydromorphone story: I started Hydromorphone last week Monday night. So this is my 12th on HM now and I decided to go back on Oxycodone. The reasons: - Hydromorphone caused some kind of sleep addiction. I was sleeping 16 - 18 hours per day and I always wanted to sleep more and more. Ly...

Thank you =)

I would stay on this combination but with Oxycodone causing this red eyes it is just a no go.

Will report how the Hydro works.

Tomorrow my first full week at med school starts.

Re: Switching from Oxycodone to Hydromorphone ...

I am taking Opioids for 6 months now and never had something I could call high and I never really tried getting one. I am afraid of developing tolerance and loose the positive effects of the opioids. This week I had a very good sleep with the combination of Oxycodone + Tramadol. In the past Tramadol...

Re: Methadone, Mirapex tra la

That's scary.

I don't wanna continue trying different opioids. I just want something that works. I know. This is asking for a lot.

Re: Switching from Oxycodone to Hydromorphone ...

Ya, I also have some activating effects from the Opioids. I am taking the Antidepressent Valdoxan to fall asleep. Also Pramipexole calms me down but my Doctor wants me to withdraw because of augmentation. I was in the hospital once. There they suggested Oxycodone as a stand alone treatment. Back the...
