Sounds like withdrawal symptoms to me. Many, many years ago my addiction started with percocets, lortabs, and vicodin. I wish that I had suffered thru a few days of feeling like **** instead of letting the pills come to rule my life. Yes, there are things that will make you feel better. It's helped me to stay away from sugar, take lots of vitamins, drink protein shakes, eat real food (not pre-packaged or junk food) and drink tons of water to wash that crap out of your body. You can definitely do this. Those pills do not rule your life yet. You rule your life. Don't panic over feeling bad. It will NOT last forever. Stay strong!
It definitely sounds like withdrawals to me. Many find some relief in the Thomas Recipe. Here's the link.
Drink lots of water.
Yes. These are classic symptoms of withdrawal. However, relatively speaking your "short-term" consistent use is a definite benefit to you. Today and possibly tomorrow will be the worst but then it will begin to get better from then on. Treat it like the flu. Don't "overthink" as your brain is exactly at the top of its game right now and getting caught up in negative thoughts will only worsen the anxiety. Number 1 and 2 thoughts for today: 1) you definitely are doing the right thing 2) This is only temporary! Good luck and God Bless.
Obviously I meant to say that your brain is Not at the top of its game right now.
I am going through the same if I could just control the skin crawling and muscle jerkiing
Thank you! This is exactly what I needed! As a previous poster mentioned the Thomas Recipe, it's not an option for a benzo. My doc will not Rx a med to treat another medication(s) side effects/withdrawal symptoms. Bummer. I could really use the sleep. I'm beyond exhausted.
