Ugh. Kill me. I’m reading Burroughs’ Cities Of The Red Night, listening to Urziet, 2 days into suboxone kick, I feel like hell and there is no god to pray to make me better. No anything. Even with my gf and all my roommates, I am alone in this.
But I’m trying. Anyone out there got any advice on sub/opiate detox I may have missed in forums?
Take some loperamide it derived from demerol so it hits the right receptors but its not a narcotic at all. Tramadol helps me a lot to not feel entirely to sick so i can sleep. I been on subs for two years and when I o without its hell. My legs want to run laps while I want to sleep and I feel like jelly, like my backbone is gone and It hurts. Not to mention the fevers. Kratom works a well you just have to eat a lot. You can by it at a head shop for cheap. But for me personally its alcohol, tramadol, maybe some xanax/kpin, and some weed. It kinda defeats the purpose of getting clean if thats what your doing but its the only thing that helps for weeks. Nyquil helps a lil. Feel free to talk to me. I dunno how old this post is but your not alone. I am not clean but I will listen and talk if you need. Take care. Hang in there.
The original post was from a couple weeks ago. Made it almost 3 days w/o any meds but I don’t have the time or money to stay sick for weeks so I’m back on sub now… Loperamide? First time I’ve heard of it but totally gonna look into it. A friend has been raving about the wondrous anagesic/euphoric effects of Kratom so I’m gonna order some with my next paycheck and report my investigations in that area soon. Benzos obviously greatly help op detox, but everyone knows they lead to worse physiological addiction and it’s too easy to just lean on them whenever you feel achy or a little “off” so I don’t trust em. Thanks for the advice and hope. Civilians don’t realize how tough kicking is. It’s like having your heart broken by the love of your life while experiencing the symptoms of swine flu… times ten.
