I have been on these tablets for years and now I have a bad ulcer which has left me in a lot of pain I am even dreaming in pain and this has made me use more of my morphine, I thought I could cut down and make it up but I was unable to do this. Can my doctor say no to me and leave me with nothing on this high dose. You are clearly in a lot of pain. Let us know what your doctor says! I have weaned myself off the tablets and now trying to wean myself off the patches.
Many thanks Ivana Addiction Blog 8: The withdrawal symptoms of morphine-like meds, such a s sevredol often last weeks. Since you were taking the medication for so many years, quitting abruptly can be dangerous and there is a possibility for occurrence of the standard opiate withdrawal syndrome. After detoxification, some effects may last even after months pass. Buprenorphine withdrawal after long-term use can also be a challenge. And the symptoms are often compare with those from heroin withdrawal.
The withdrawal effects from buprenorphine usually peak the first days, but you still may experience mild symptoms for several weeks. How long will they stay in your system depends upon your metabolism, weight, physical activity, age, level of hydration, general health condition and other factors. I am getting divorced and my husband is accusing me of abusing drugs. I was ordered to take a drug hair test. The results were negative. How can that be right? Is it because the dose is low and my body metabolizes quickly?
I am not abusing it — take it as prescribed. Can you give me an answer? My attorney wants me to get my doctor to explain and I want to make sure he has the right information for the letter. I am running out of money for attorney fees and co pays!
If I have taken about 70 15 mg pills of morphine over a period of 10 days how long does it stay in your system and can a blood test tell how much is in your system?
Thank you dandyelle 2: Am currently withdrawing from buprenorphine and am wondering if taking morphine sulphate will help with the symptoms? Morphine is not an appropriate treatment for buprenorphine withdrawal; seek help from your prescribing doctor for tips on tapering, setting up a slow withdrawal calendar, and managing symptoms of withdrawal.
I was up to 45mg 3 times a day at the peak. Is there anything to counteract this. Also is coming off morphine causing my hair to fall out or is it the occipital nerve block series I just had? Of Morphine Friday night and 10g of Morphine 6 am Saturday morning.
With the half-life indicated on this page, in your opinion, do you think it will be our of my urine by Wed at noon.? I have a UA on Wednesday at noon. In your professional opinion, will I pass?
I am doing alot of sweating and drinking water, please answer soon!?! During his 7 days in the hospital he was given 3 to 6 mg of morphine every 3 to 4 hours in his iv. I think he could be going through withdrawal.
Please tell me if you agree. He has only been home for a day and a half. If this is withdrawal, how long could it last? Does kids bodies naturally make it maybe idk im a gear head thnx in advanced I cant find any info on it Tiffany 7: The first month went great but now I am seeing what could be some crazy side effects. Is it possible that side effects take 30 days to show up for the first time, or should I be going to my regular doc to figure out if something unrelated is happening?
Ivana Addiction Blog 1: I am still getting dizzy spells, I cant sleep but Im tired all the time. My head is sooooo itchy. I dont have nits as I have got my husband to look a dozen times! I take it along with a lot of other medicines daily. About six months ago, I had severe chills and shaking and went to the emergency room. They said I had a urinary tract infection and treated it with antibiotics.
I was encouraged to drink plenty of water. About a month and a half ago, I again had severe chills and was shaking and again went to the emergency room and was iv-ed powerful antibiotics. I was told I had double pneumonia and sepsis a blood infection. After a short hospitalization, I came home and appeared fine. I monitor my O2 levels daily. After the first hospitalization, I starting drinking lots of water to avoid future infections.
After the second hospitalization, I added Gatorade and more juices. I have PTSD and one of my main symptoms is hypervigilance-which means when the doctor says do something I do it obsessively whether drinking more water or taking medicines.
I have never missed my morphine medication. I was called in for a drug test and no morphine showed up. Also two other drugs, baclofen and clonozapam? Could drinking large amounts of water about 16 glasses a day cause my urinalysis to be negative for morphine? I have never missed taking my morphine or the other drugs. If so, should a pain management specialist be aware of this? Will I pass urinalysis after 60 hours K All prescribed by va.
Can I get a job? My drug test will show my prescription medication I take. Her mental health professional administered a drug test today and it was positive. How can this happen? How often does human error come into play at a lab? There is no way morphine would show up on a test 3 months after being administered.
I was given a morphine shot in the ER. I was drug tested 7 days later and it still showed in my urine. Now I have to prove why it was still there! I averaged around 12 mgs a day. Sometimes with three days in between doses. Flu symptoms, weakness, sweating, horrible body odor, diarrhea.
Please how long will this last?? I have to go back to work tomorrow. I have readily access to morphine, fentanyl, Latvian etc. I am a happily married woman with beautiful children and a wonderful life. No one and I mean no one knows about this problem.
Why do they punish people like myself? I need medical treatment without limitations, the DEA is causing me more physical torment. And I now fear losing work and ending up on the streets with pain. They demand no matter how much suffering comes your way. Reply So, it is not okay to lose someone to heroin overdose, but it is okay to lose someone to suicide that has legitimate pain issues. I personally know 2 people that recently took their lives.
I sit here in agony because my sadistic, unfeeling doctor refused to re-fill my pain meds after being on them for 10 years. Oh, plus I have atrial fibrillation with tachycardia, 2 heart murmers..
Mitral Valve a Prolapse, and an enlarged heart muscle. They are even starting new, even more strict laws I am scared to death that I am going to die…my heart is really acting up due to this withdrawal.
I told my family and friends if something happens to me, that sadistic doctor and the DEA is the reason. Someone please help us!! I feel it is very wrong and illegal in my mind…costing ME more money, time, and fuel to pay for something I never have done in my LIFE abuse or sell my medication.
Reply This makes it hard on people like me. Im 23 years old and I have a broken vertebrae in my lower back from a car wreck. Im in pain managment i have been for over a year and they keep twlling me they will not proscribe me any medication because i am to young.
I lay in by bed and do not get yp unless I have to. It hurts to move and yet I can not get any help. Does any one know how we can fix this. Reply In light of the DEA setting restrictions of patients with chronic pain conditions, is in violation of our privacy. I have become a criminal instead of a patient. Being denied my prescribed pain medication has lead me to going to the streets. Why pay insurance any more.
This is only going to make the street market richer and people relying less on physicians. I myself will to what ever it takes to keep my pain under control. Its the physicians and insurance companies that are going to lose in the long run. Drug crimes will become more and more on the upscale.
Reply After having the same PCP for 15 years, I had to find a new one because mine lied to me last summer and said that because of new governmental regulations, he could no longer prescribe the small quantity of Demerol I have used for the last 15 years.. I used between tablets a month and used whatever he gave me whenever I had dental work or surgery as well as for my 50 year long chronic pain.
I never had this medicine prescribed by anyone but him. He did however, give me a prescription for Fentanyl. I was told I would have to have that medication prescribed to me a pain management specialist, but five of them declined to even see me since I would not consent to having steroid injections.
I have had dozens of those over the years and found them to be remarkably ineffective My pharmacist said I was not a candidate for fentanyl as my narcotic use was so limited and sporadic. Every other pain medication I have ever used has made me break out for days or weeks with hives.. And no sooner than they started to go away, I broke out with shingles. There are so many stories like mine. Reply I have been on the same dosage of Lortab for 32 years.
The dosage has always worked and I never needed to take more and more to achieve a so called high. I have an extremely debilitating cranial nerve disorder which involves every cranial nerve on the right side of my head.
I have tried absolutely everything known to treat this and non of it worked. Then again, my disorder is known amongst the neurological community as the suicide disease. I have even had brain surgery to relieve the pressure of blood vessels that were pressing on these nerves to no avail.
When your body has seizures due to pain and your body is a fight or flight response that also causes foaming at the mouth all you want is to die as your body is very well aware that there is no getting out of this pain. I am currently taking several anti-seizure meds that only help somewhat. In addition I am on a tricyclic anti-depressant, a muscle relaxer, a benzodiazepine and anti-nausea meds. However, there are times when I must have a narcotic to disconnect from the pain.
Never had anxiety… but was misdiagnosed after a venom allergy reaction and systemic issues with heavy duty antibiotics. I had little to no support my husband was actually convinced by the er doctor that I would never get better without taking Ativan and that I had general anxiety disorder.
Never had an issue with panic attacks or anxiety up to that point at age I started to believe I would never be the same or normal again. I was desperate for my old self! It did finally get better after about 2 months…and I think you are right around the corner, although I know length of time on the drug may or may not increase your recovery.
These drugs are poison. Reply Link C October 19, , Then I tapered down slowly from there. I can suggest a great online place for support and information called BenzoBuddies. When I found that website, I read the various topics, including Success Stories. For me, the disequilibrium has lasted a long time, but for others, it goes more quickly.
My hair stopped falling out, though, and that was a huge relief. C Reply Link Jan January 5, , 5: I know I am in tolerance withdrawal. Also lost a lot of weight and it concerns me.

Reply Link Michael October 21, , 8: Recently I stopped taking it cold turkey for about 48 hours and I experienced some crazy shaking, tremors, felt sick as hell.
I took 2 mg and felt normal again. How would you guys recommend my taper off the 2 mg klonopin for 6 years? Worst choice of drug I ever chose. I have anxiety at times, but this is the wrong med. My original prescribing doctor was totally wrong for this. Is it ok to lower the dose to 1. Or is that too quick? Plz all help and comments appreciated. Reply Link Gigi8 March 5, , 8: Use the Ashton manual.
Heather Ashton in the U. Mentioned in comments — or just Google Ashton manual. This is physical addiction that needs a defined method to get through what most of us appropriately call hell. Willpower alone cannot battle this.
Your brain cannot change that fast and you will suffer horribly and needlessly. October 25, , 6: I never knew this was habit forming and that a difficult withdrawal would result. I was told to take. It has been a week since I took the last dose and, as you would predict, I have begun to experience the effects of withdrawal. I had heart palpitations several days ago along with shortness of breath. My stomach is queazy and I have no appetite, but I can deal with this. What I am having great difficulty with is the horrible headaches heavy-headedness I experience when I wake after dozing off for hrs.
It occurs in the middle of the night; my brain feels like it is swelling and neck where it meets my spine aches horribly. I have experienced this for the last two nights and expect this will continue??? Unfortunately, those few hours of sleep are it for the night. Can you make a recommendation about whether I should take the medication again at.
I now know I was relying upon this for way too long, and that this will make withdrawal that much more difficult. Reply Link FO August 1, , I have been on Clonazepam. I experienced severe memory loss and inability to concentrate so I decided 14 days ago to go off cold turkey. My husband and I are trying to get pregnant, and we fear the negative impact this drug could have on the baby.
My temper has been short with everyone. I have trouble getting and staying asleep at night. Dizziness also plagues me along with a never ending feeling of tension. But, I am NOT going back! I value my legacy too much and I will continue to deal with the withdrawal symptoms for as long as it takes. Please my friend stay encouraged. Reply Link Andrea H. November 16, , 6: Other than ibuprofen, were there any other things you found helpful? After 11 years of taking.
Any help or advice would be very much appreciated. I sure hope you are doing better after being off this medication: Reply Link mirage November 22, , High-potency benzodiazepines, such as clonazepam, are frequently used in the treatment of panic disorder PD because of their rapid onset of action and good tolerability.
However, there is concern about their potential to cause withdrawal symptoms. We aimed to develop a protocol for safely tapering off clonazepam in patients with PD who had been receiving treatment for at least 3 years. A specific scale for judging withdrawal was also developed, the Composite Benzodiazepine Discontinuation Symptom Scale. We selected 73 patients with PD who had been asymptomatic for at least 1 year and who wished to discontinue the medication.
The trial consisted of a 4-month period of tapering and an 8-month follow-up period. The dosage of clonazepam was decreased by 0. The mean dosage at the start of tapering was 2. In total, 51 Clonazepam discontinuation symptoms were mostly mild and included mainly: The improvement in PD and general well-being was maintained during both the taper and follow-up phases. Clonazepam can be successfully discontinued without any major withdrawal symptoms if the dose is reduced gradually.
We recommend reducing the dosage of clonazepam after intermediate-term use by 0.

As I am getting to the end of it is causing a lot of anxiety, but also making me more motivated to get off it, if it causes this much anxiety, just knowing I am running out. Reply Link Paul November 11, , I recently lost my job and my health coverage.
When I ran out I was unable to get a refill. I have been cold turkey for 2 weeks and I find my anxieties are 3 fold. Racing heartbeat, gasping for air, confused, scarred, any number of the withdrawal symptoms listed. I am awaiting a refill authorization so I can taper off properly as its becoming unmanageable.
Reply Link Mel November 14, , 3: Somehow, about a year ago I ended up taking it again because I do have bad anxiety and my doctor said that Klonopin was long-lasting.
I went off of it in 3 days, 3mg, then 2 mg, then 1 mg, then off. I have been off the Klonopin for 9 days now. I am a trooper and I pray I will feel like myself sometime soon. Reply Link Pam November 15, , I hated the Methadone and am very relieved to have stopped it but after stopping the methadone I experienced such anxiety that I woke up every morning nauseous and vomiting. My doctor gave me the Klonopin because I need to be able to function as a mother and I thought it would be very short term.
The Klonopin is causing worse symptoms than it is helping to alleviate and I want to quit it as fast as possible. My doctor is not really sure how quickly I can taper or what is safe.
Reply Link Bill November 21, , 2: Some have stopped after dropping slowly down to. Just realize you will probably experience some anxiety, insomnia, etc… but others have done this and eventually improved to their old selves.

The more I researched this drug the more side effects I found. It can change every aspect of the human body including Your immune system as it did mine. This drug should be outlawed! I believe in doing things naturally however I had a case of total insomnia and made the mistake of taking this medication which slammed My depression even further into the ground each and every day. Digestive issues , lump on throat mucus buildup creating a chocking feeling, difficulty swallowing, constant urination,.
I was also told that due to the dose and short duration I would not have any problems getting off which has not been the case. Please warn other people of the hazzards of this pill.
Good luck to all of You trying to get off and please remember to take it slow. Reply Link Mike December 4, , 4: And they should never leave them on this drug for 20 yrs.
My gosh we trust them with our health. My respect for them has dropped tons and I will question every thing now. Yep I was on them for 20 yrs. I would go in and they would ask no questions and just give them to me. When I decided to quit my doctor pulled a number out of the hat and said, quit taking one mg. After 5 days of this my wife called the nurse and said, you have to put him back on them.
They complied, and I seem to be functioning on 3 mg. I will continue to taper off, but on my time schedule not the Drs. He cut off cold turkey.
I am truly at the end of my endurance. Reply Link Angela December 10, , 2: I need to hear what you are saying about your experiences. Long story short… 7 years on Clonazepam.

Any thoughts or encouragement would help me so much. Reply Link Runnergirl December 30, , 4: I took Advil for pain and took things really easy that week.

Reply Link Kat December 13, , 3: I too have been on klonopin for 15 plus years for a history of generalized anxiety disorder and panic attacks.
After doing well for some time now, the physician assistant agreed that it might be good to go off. I took the year to do so and now have been off 30 days with some symptoms.
My mind is constantly worrying, muscles tensed, etc. I often feel like a am short of breath. I have been meditating, relaxations exercises, sleeping, calming music, etc. Can anyone help with advice for anxiety management? Any help or advice is appreciated. I wish there was a support group to go to. Reply Link Jim Sproul May 30, , 4: A psychiatrist will very likely perpetuate the addiction.
Unless a miracle has happened in the past year, there are no safe medicinal long-term treatments for anxiety. But there are treatments. Reply Link Arlis June 24, , 7: I have had anxiety issues all my life since childhood, and believe me I tried every natural treatment out there before finally at the age of 49 I was prescribed Klonopin. This was the first treatment that ever worked, including herbal concoctions and therapy. Some things you just have to learn to live with. You may turn your emotional or physical pain into artistic expression.
I feel I made a mistake trying to cure my anxiety with medicine. When I go without it now, my anxiety is way worse than it ever was before I was medicated. By comparison, my level of anxiety 4 years ago was tolerable. Only now though, do I realize I could have lived with it, and I dread what I am going to have to go through getting off it. Reply Link Emma August 14, , 8: I too am in a small town with no doctor. Migraines are bad, sleep hardly comes, etc. How are you doing now and managing?
Any help would be appreciated. Are you taking other medications? I have very bad anxiety and panic attacks. Now, the doctor retired and I am left with just seeing this nurse practitioner. Any advice will help. I wish the best for you.
I know my surroundings play a factor with a lot of my anxiety along with trying to get off the klonopin. I am disgusted that it was prescribed for me. I have been taking it since I went without it for 4 days and last night I had a really bad moment. During this 4 day period, I was itching, I was very difficult to be around. Last night I was so tired and all I wanted to do was sleep and I could not fall asleep despite the fact that I was not able to fall asleep until 5: I recently came to terms that I actually have a anxiety issues and am able to address that with a different medication.
I really think that if I could get steady regular sleep, I would be much less anxious. Thank you for listening. I have never blogged before, some how being able to be anonymous is helpful.
I shared with my older children and my siblings what I have been dealing with and I do not think I am really being understood. Has anyone, who needed to wean off Klonopin due to tolerance issues, ever taken 1 again and not have problems?
Reply Link Bill January 8, , 3: Am experiencing troubling memory gaps. Very troubling when you wake up with holes in your past memory. I love my kids but who are they?!
Reply Link Aaron January 15, , 8: At first it was very helpful. I have social anxiety worse part is I love being social. It started out when I was 19 years old. That turned into anticipatory anxiety in a number of different situations- Presentations, job interviews, meetings, saying my name and my interests in class, and just the initial interaction of meeting up with my friends, peers, friends parents, etc… Anything where there was attention focused on me would make me anxious. That anticipatory anxiety would turn to panic where I noticed my cheek would start to twitch and that just made my panic worse as all I could think about was that everyone can see this and how nervous I am.
This led to avoiding these situations and so on. It seemed to be a magic pill. No mention of any long term effects. The pill basically had just become a crutch, a security blanket and anytime I had a big meeting, interview, etc… I had to up my dose by 1 mg to feel comfortable.
I tapered down slowly from. The first few days I experienced low grade dizziness, headaches and increased anxiety. All of these symptoms are manageable and I have no desire to go back on the drug. I have an appointment to start CBT. Hopefully this will work as I do not want to go on another drug if at all possible.

Reply Link Lisa January 18, , 5: I take 1mg in the morning and 3mg at night. My psychiatrist told me to taper by. I have only been tapering. I tried a rapid taper last year and it was a disaster. Also a lot of busy dreams and night sweats. Has anyone else been on this high of a dose for a long time? How did you get through the process of getting off?
Do I just have to tough it out for a few weeks? Or is there a better way? I saw my psychiatrist today. As I knew, he was supportive. He even said that I could slow down the taper by.
It will take longer if I do it that way. I want to be as functional as possible. He also said that a small dose of Doxepin could help me with my insomnia, since sleep, more than anxiety was my problem to begin with.
Reply Link Valerie January 29, , I first did a too fast taper and experienced so many withdrawal effects that I went back on 3mg. Then I started a slower taper, 0.

He understands the moodiness, the restlessness. I am hoping to be off completely in a month! If I can do this, you can too! Reply Link Jeff January 22, , 5: Most recently, I was taking mg per day. My psychiatrist has required that I taper off due to the risks.
I am experiencing anxiety, extreme emotional sensitivity, memory problems, and am mildly depressed. Almost 25 years into benzos I wonder how a drug that seemed so appropriate and innocent when it was first prescribed became a widely sold illicit substance with long term hardcore side effects… Best of luck to all of you in similar circumstances!
