:thumbup: Oh I have just the thing for you to take so you won't feel any WDs at all from those pills that got you off the other pills
And on and on it goes ! :ogeez:

Those motherless fucks ! :punchballs:


No shit, huh. It's ridiculous.

One of the commercials on TV that ALWAYS makes me lose my damn mind is the one about Abilify (I think it is). Originally marketed as an Alzheimer's drug. One of the lines in the commercial is "If you're on an anti-depressant right now...and it's not working for you...then ADD ABILIFY!!! "

WTF?

When do you stop ADDING drugs and get the fuck OFF off of them? "Oh, if THIS doesn't work, hey, try these three things ADDED with that!"

It's fucking crazy.

Congrats on getting off the gabapentin, though! :cheers2:


Abilify is an anti-psychotic! Hmm.. our pills ain't working for ya? Maybe you need to throw this remarketed anti-psychotic onto the mix! :lol: :ogeez:

Feel better Poncho, GABA w/d is a bitch.

I didn't think at that low dose it would be so bad, but the ongoing anxiety all the time really sucks.

I know it's nothing compared to what you've been through Xeno. I keep up with your posts man and it is truely commendable the way you've been able to cut down your dose while feeling bad the whole time. Keep it rolling man.

Thanks Poncho... but suffering is suffering man it all sucks... I know you aren't having a fun time. It'll get better. It's commendable that you aren't bitching too much :)

Anxiety fucking sucks. You sleeping ok at least?

Yes, I sleep because I take 10 Mil of Ambien every night. If they ever cut me off that I may as well hang myself.
Not trying to bitch mind you :D

Can't believe this shit, the anxiety has subsided a little bit but I've had a sinus/chest cold since I stopped using the this shit. I'm heading up to Boston next weekend and don't want to feel this way then.

END YOU MOTHERFUCKING WD !

Almost 3 weeks. The anxiety has ceased a little but I've been sick with this headcold for over 2 weeks too, and wondering if it's related. I swear i haven't been sick in 30 years at least so I think it's part of the WDs.

Yep I had the sinus thing too for awhile when quitting that shit!! Sinus pressure, ugh!! Hang in there Poncho.. just whatEVER you do don't take anymore of that shit!! I actually had them put on my chart that I am allergic to it.. it scared the shit out of me. The depression and anxiety were unreal.. I think almost if not worse than sub!!

I am going to go slip into a nice hot bath now. :D

If i were you i wouldnt worry aout it,,cause if you do ,,then you'll get em for sure!!,,,Ive been on 1500 mgs for yrs,,i use em for sleep,,and been on em so long they dont make me all foggy or goofy.
And,,as i think CP said they deffinately help with calmin ya down while in wd's.
Now as for me personally,,i ate em like candy while detoxin ,,then ran out,,I had no idea there might be wd involved with them,,but yea,,i got em,,but they were tolerable and only lasted about 2 weeks.
I got a big freaking bottle of 150 300mg pills and dont want to take them,,but last night i said f-it and 5 of em later slept all night!,,I take 200 mgs of seraqyl too,,together they work,,but seraqyl alone only for a few hrs.

So wtf do i do?,,I HATE SITTIN HERE UP ALL NIGHT,,but im already 7yrs hooked deep with sub,,and 2yrs 4mgs klonopin a day!,,It'd be nice to be strong enough to at least quit the easiest one(neurotin)!,,thats what i mean when i say i need to go in-paitient!,,lock my freakin ass up and hopefully get off everything,,AND LIVE THROUGH IT!,,LOL
But just me by myself aint what i used to be.,,,I guess if i didnt have to worry about doctors gettin a bug up thier ass and just yankin me off something id probably just say f-it and not even think about gettin off anything!,,I mean,,i take sub and klonopin and feel nothing,,i mean like a high ,,but to be honest they help with keepin me calm,,and no desire for another opiate,,,But i been like this so long ,,i dont even know what im supposed to feel like?,,see,,thats what has me wonderin?,,and wantin to find out!,,,It'd be a trip if i got off everything and felt like i did when i got out of an 18 month program!,,Shit,,i was freakin superman!,,worked the railyard 50 or more hrs a week,,even bought a caddy!,,lol,,lasted 1 1/2 yrs clean.,,,i know cause im disabled and all fucked up after the coma trip i'll never feel like that,,but i might feel alot better!,,right now,,i cant even be in the heat for more than a couple hrs,,even doin nothin or i end down and out in bed for 3 days!,,so,,who knows till ya try right,,,i wanna go,,maybe im a little institutionalized or something,,i dont know!,,,And im sure there are some who might be thinkin,,man,,if he really wanted to go he'd go!,,,And in alot of case they'd be right,,,but for me RIGHTNOW?,,With things the way they are I just cant freakin up and go,,,Im sure my teenage daughter would love that idea,,but like it or not im still responsible and even if i wasnt i wouldnt leave my daughter with a freakin baby with a baby's dad who aint takin care of buisness!,,and i dont trust leavin my home to my wild older step daughter!,,No,,when i go this place will be padlocked up like last time!,,so there ya go,,I didnt mean to write all this,,just came out,,bottom line,,i still got frieda's cross around my neck and i have the FAITH that goes with it ,,so its gonna happen when its supposed to happen. In the meantime,,i keep lovin my daughter(were now gettin along great!),,try to keep it that way and keep her safe.
Anyway,,back to nuerotin?,,if you can get by w/o takin it,,then dont take it.
