Hi Teira,

Did u by chance see my other post regarding revia?

I cant remember the name of the thread, but I kind of got sidetracked in my response to you.  Have you thought anymore about which route you are going to take?  Just checking in... hope all is well.

HI ......if your at 5mg its time to jump ship I tapered all the way down to 1 and it is tourcher at 5mg and below....my final withdrawals where no worst then tapering below 5mg so save your self the agony and jump off and get stated on your recovery......recovery takes a wile
I was sick the first month that and the energy crash is debilitating but it can be done
I was on the pills for 10yrs then methadone for 6 1/2 yrs if I can break a 16 1/2 yr habit
anyone can get clean....just know it is doable I was going to jump at 5mg but my phyc dr told me it would throw me into a manic episode...im also bipolar I have helped others do this and 5 is a good jumping point it will put you a month ahead on your recovery ...it can take arond 90days to feel better after doing this so that extra month ahead helps out a lot
good luck and God bless,,,,,Gnarly

I know honey!  It is misery!  And I am proud, proud, proud of you for coming and asking for help!

Ok.....here's what you need from Wal Mart or Walgreens:

Advil
Epsom salts for hot baths (A MUST!)
Hyland's Restful Legs (really helps RLS)
Nyquil (helps sleep and RLS) Just take one dose at night for a few nights if needed.
Mag/Cal/Zinc supplement (priceless for WD for several symptoms)

I have never been big on vitamins or natural stuff.  OBVIOUSLY I only liked the pharmaceutical stuff!!  Anyway, it was a hard sell to get me to buy that stuff, but I was amazed at how much help it was!  Go get it.  You won't be sorry!

I would talk with your doctor also and see if he can adjust your dose.  I know the feelings of desperation but you can do this.  Just stick close to the forum and we will help you.....You are worth fighting for.        sara

Then you should wait ten days.  I'm sorry!  I know you are miserable, but there are other things you can do.  Have you talked to the doc who is giving you the methadone?  Maybe the dose could be adjusted?  There are lots of OTC remedies that help a LOT too!

Hi!  Have you asked a doctor about when you can start the revia?  If you start it too early, it will make you feel like doodoo!  Even more than you already probably do!

Are you having WD symptoms?
