It's been a bit since I posted eh? But have been reading everday and have posted on others.
But did want to mention that today (more than 24 hours) I have not touch a Lope though my husband did give me my rations for the day of 20 Loperamides, (my husband buys them for me and doles them out, so I won't take more..... usually).
I took today a higher dose of my newly prescribed Lyrica, and haven't felt the beginnings of withdrawals at all. Usually less than 14 hours, I start to feel agitated, anxiety, runny nose etc. I remember when I first came here, someone who I have forgot their name, mentioned that if I could grin and bare it, to not take the Lope for a day or two, that my tolerance will go down a bit, so I wouldn't need as much Lope the following day. I have not been able to go a day without it, but the Lyrica has allowed me to now go a day at least without any Lopes. I don't have enough Lyrica to take a higher dose everyday, and even if I did, tolerance happens with that too. And don't want to have to take a higher dose, I don't think.....though Lyrica and Gabapentin that I take for pain is much better than taking Lopes daily....but don't have enough anyway. I have read that someone on here that Lyrica is a narcotic. I asked my pharmasist, and she said that it is not. So feels good to have a day plus without any
So I will try a lower dose when I get up today. Dang it is late! I stayed up all night....not good.
Anyway, open to constructive suggestions and input.
