Best benzo for opiate w/d?
Thanks Fire - Have to be on it all the time . My problem is I can't supplement with OTC like Motrin, etc
Because I have 2 doctors who say no way. One is my Pulmonary Hypertension Dr. and the other just added on is my colitis dr - so I am between rock and hard place I just have ti tough it out and use steams
Baths massages, yoga, etc but that as u may know doesn't last long
I just posted,in another thread about me taking xanax for my anxiety after years if opiate abuse. I have been clean this time around for 1 year and 2 months after a relapse after having 3 years clean. Opiate addiction is hell and I'd never wish it upon anyone.  I do find that 1mg of xanax in the morning and 1 at night and occasional 1 in the daytime if I absolutely need it helps me. As far as withdrawls.  In the oast I have always found xanax to be a very good benzos for withdrawls.
the valium and clonidine sounds good I believe kpins would also fit the bill nicely.
I know everyone has heard this before but besides the other things you are doing, drink tons f water. And I mean tons. It will totally clean out your system. Now it isn't the only thing to do but it really helps.
i take a small dose of a sleep bento for sleep and then kratom during the day. does anyone else use the kratom?
MrFussbudget, I suggest that you stop posting for the night so that it all can be sorted out.

You have laid down a big hurdle though in this post to make it over. IMO.

I am saying for you to stop posting on this forum until this is sorted out.

Up to you, now. 2:43

Mad Max, I think you are correct, we are a "close knit" group of friends made by years, trials and errors...

Having said that, this forum is run OUR way for a reason, if our system does not fit YOUR agenda, go elsewhere...

Thanks Max

As stated to both parties, I shall always back our moderators and our rules.

We have worked out a suitable solution for both parties and I am hopeful we can move on soon.

Well done, all. We all do our best in a very tricky and ever changing world in which we live a good deal of our lives.

I know I am super late on this post, but just gonna post for the sake of anyone going through this currently and speaking out of experience. Firstly in terms of benzos to kick opiates I dont think is the best option as they can form their own dependency. But if anyone does follow through with it, alpraz is always a no to me, always found that because of it's short half life yet strong potential, it only caused more issues than solved and has more side effects. Diazepam and clonazepam were always effective especially when it comes to the Thomas recipe. But back to what I was saying, when kicking h, or anything except for methadone or suboxone, is worth just riding out since the length of withdrawal is only one week to under a month whereas methadone, subs and benzos even take months to finally feel normal again. I myself have withdrawaled from each of these and found h the easiest and most bearable. Of course were all different but at the end of the day its painful regardless and as long as the light at the end of the tunnel is seen, all will be good. Much love to anyone going through this.

I went to a Pain mgt doctor, whom is very knowledgeable with opioids, prescribing, withdrawl,etc and so on.  He uses Valium to help with the muscle cramps, and considers it very important to keep your heart rate down and calm.  When he wrote out my prescription he didnt want the pharmacy to substitute with any generic period.   He specializes in pain medicine and is a board certified anesthesiologist. 

Hope this helps
