clonidine dose in opiate withdrawal

Hello, I am currently planning to get off pills after 5 years. I am very scared of the wd symptoms. I was wondering if anyone has tried clonidine. How much did you take and did it help.

If you have that creepy crawly feeling where your legs or arms just won't settle down, the clonidine really helps. Plus it makes you sleepy

I agree to some extend with you.  I went through the WDs with no help and the worst thing was the fact that I could not sleep and my leg and arm was super restless.  I got through it, but what I did not count on was how lathargic I was. The result was I relapsed.  Now with the help of Tramadol and Clonidine, I have been clean 61 days now.  Everybody's metabolism and body are different.  There is no shame AT ALL with help from Medications

one more important thing realize methodone will temporary cure the problem if your using by all means take it...it worx well but remember there job at the clinic is to treat heavy addicts so somtimes the only way they will let you in the door is if your not afraid to say i am a Junkie please help me and possibly exhagurate your symptoms and usage but longterm its as hard to kick as heroin sorry bout blabbin gl peace
