Quit an Addiction to Painkillers Today with Antiopes
or the first time ever, a Canadian company, Creekside Botanical, has released a product called Antiopes which is an herbal product guaranteed to reduce withdrawal symptoms when quitting an addiction to opiate based painkillers.
6 months ago, Brendan Carpenter, the CEO of Creekside Botanicals, the company which is releasing Antiopes, was addicted to painkillers himself. Spending thousands of dollars on Percocet and OxyContin every month, he knew he needed to quit, but was afraid of the terrible withdrawal that inevitably would follow for about a week. So he decided that he would research natural herbs and extracts to find a solution that didn't mean going to a doctor to just get addicted to Methadone.
After a few months of research and trial and error, the initial product was ready. There is no shortage of addicts in Vancouver, so test subjects were easy to find. Addiction rates were anywhere from 10 mg to 400 mg of oxycodone per day. Each of the 15 test subjects reported a drastic reduction in withdrawal symptoms. After this positive initial result, Creekside Botanicals decided to release Antiopes to the public.
"I took my last Oxy that morning and switched to Antiopes that night. That was the last time I have taken oxycodone, almost two months ago now. The next day I woke up with no cravings at all, and called Brendan that afternoon for a two week supply. That was the best two weeks of my life. I was finally free of my addiction," says M.J., an early Antiopes customer. Every customer since then has come away with similar comments.
"Being a prior addict myself, I understand peoples reluctance to go see a doctor about this," says Brendan Carpenter, Antiopes founder."You think, 'it's not like I'm a heroin addict', but the addiction is just as bad. Also, the main method of quitting is to go on Methadone, which is just as addictive as oxycodone anyways."
Antiopes is made from a blend of ten different herbs, with effects ranging from serotonin boosters, to relaxants, to alkaloids that bind to mu- and kappa-opioid receptors. With an estimated 10 million opiate addicts in the world, there is definitely room for one more product in the fight against opiate addiction.

We have developed a proprietary herbal blend called Antiopes, combining a number of herbal and plant extracts, in gel cap form, that can relieve all of your withdrawal symptoms.
Among the ingredients in Antiopes are:
An herb used by healers in Asia for hundreds of years, when treating addiction to opium among the villagers.
A shrub that grows in the south of Africa, chewed by shepards and hunters when they needed a pick me up after spending days on end alone in the desert.
A plant that is the number one prescribed anti-depressant in some forward thinking European countries.
A root extract used as a general body tonic, to help expel toxicity and replenish your bodies natural defenses.
A naturally occuring amino acid extract that is proven to boost your serotonin levels.
Are these legal in my state/country?
In most cases, yes. One of the ingredients, Mytragyna Speciosa, is a controlled substance in Romania, Thailand, Bhutan, Australia, Finland, Denmark, Poland, Lithuania, Malaysia and Myanmar (Burma). As a result of this, we cannot ship to these locations.
Do these actually work?
Yes! For clarification, these are not some magic pill that makes you want to instantly stop taking all drugs. What they are is a substitute for opiates that tricks your brain into thinking you are still taking the drug, while at the same time increasing your serotonin levels and keeping you relaxed.
How many should I take?
Depending on your tolerance for opiates, and whether you have a tolerance for Mytragyna Speciosa, we recommend starting with 6-12 capsules per day for the first 3-4 days, and then bring your intake down to 3-6 capsules per day thereafter.
Can I mix them with other pills?
Well, that depends what other pills. You should always consult with a physician before taking any action, but generally we would advise against mixing them with SSRIs or MAOIs. Mixing with vitamins or other herbal supplements shouldn’t cause reactions, but check with a trusted herbalist if you have any pre-existing health conditions or if you have any reservations at all.
How long does shipping take?
We ship by standard mail from Vancouver, Canada. Barring any holdups at the border, North American customers should expect delivery within 7 business days.
Can I order in bulk?
Please contact us if you would like to place an order larger than 10 units for special pricing.
Where are you located?
We are located in Canada, in Vancouver, BC. If you are located in Vancouver, please contact us if you would like to purchase in person. We are based out of the False Creek area.
Are these addictive?
Slightly, yes. Mytragyna Speciosa is a relative of the coffee plant. I would compare the withdrawal from Antiopes to be similar to the withdrawal from your morning coffee. Yes, its slightly annoying, but much easier than the withdrawal from an opiate addiction!
How long should I take Antiopes for?
Following our recommended dosage, one package should last approximately 14 days. However, should you feel the need, you could take Antiopes indefinitely with little ill effect.
How long does withdrawal from opiates take?
It can vary greatly. From personal experience, I have found that for an addiction of approximately 5 percocets per day, taken for 2 years, the main physical withdrawal will last around 7 days. Of course if using Antiopes, withdrawal will be almost non-existent. Mild body aches have been reported by heavy users, with a hot bath and 2 Advil fixing most problems.
Do you offer a money-back guarantee?
Yes! Due to the nature of addiction, we can’t guarantee that Antiopes will make you quit your addiction forever, however we do guarantee that Antiopes will reduce your withdrawal symptoms and cravings. If you find no reduction in withdrawal symptoms just send the package back to us at least half full and we will offer you a full refund.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, Panax ginseng promotes yang energy, improves circulation, increases blood supply, revitalizes and aids recovery from weakness after illness, and stimulates the body.
We add this to help your body to quickly recover and help to expel the toxins that have built up.
Sceletium tortuosum is a succulent herb commonly found in South Africa that has been used by South African pastoralists and hunter-gatherers as a mood-altering substance from prehistoric times. Sceletium is known to elevate mood and decrease anxiety, stress and tension. In intoxicating doses it can cause euphoria, initially with stimulation and later with sedation. Users also report increased personal insight, interpersonal ease and a meditative, grounded feeling without any perceptual dulling.
This herb is used to help boost your mood in the days following quitting drugs. The alkaloids found in Sceletium tortuosum work similar to SSRIs, so it is best to avoid taking other anti-depressants while taking antiopes.
Lettuce opium has been used as a topical antiseptic, as folk medicine to ameliorate a variety of conditions, and as a narcotic substitute or enhancer. It is also a mild sedative and hypnotic. It is made from an extract of wild lettuce.
This is included as a mild sedative, and to reduce anxiety.
Also known as St. Johns Wort, this herb is widely used as an herbal anti-depressant. In some countries, it is commonly prescribed by doctors for mild depression, especially in children and adolescents. This is used to help keep away any depression that is commonly associated with drug withdrawal.
Valerian root is used for insomnia and other disorders as an alternative to benzodiazepine drugs. A sedative for nervous tension, hysteria, excitability, stress and intestinal colic or cramps.
This will help you to sleep at night without the use of opiates.
Mitragyna speciosa is a medicinal leaf harvested from a large tree in the Rubiaceae family native to Southeast Asia. Mytragyna shares molecular similarities to the alkaloids yohimbine and ibogaine, but acts on the brain primarily as an opiate receptor.Effects are similar to the effects of opiate receptor agonists such as codeine or hydrocodone, and will prevent withdrawal symptoms in an opiate addicted person.
Also known as wild dagga, this is another mild euphoriant and relaxant. Good for reducing stress, and keeping away anxiety.
Schizandra Chinensis Extract
Schisandra is considered a mild sedative that has a soothing and calming effect on your body, and has been helpful in cases of insomnia, stress, dizziness, motion sickness, excessive sweating, headache, heart palpitations, anxiety and other problems associated with emotional stress. Obviously, this reduction of stress and anxiety is beneficial for the first week after stopping your addiction to painkillers. Also, it is an excellent way of helping you with the “sweats” that are common with withdrawal symptoms.
Griffonia simplicifolia seeds
The seeds of Griffonia simplicifolia are used as an herbal supplement for their 5-Hydroxytryptophan content. 5-Hydroxytryptophan, also known as 5-HTP is an important building block for the human body to form serotonin. Serotonin plays an important role in the body, and is a well-known contributor to feelings of well-being. When going through drug detox, it is important to have a boost in your serotonin levels.
