Day 8: 3 in the AM 4 in the PM - Slept 8 hours after my hydroxyzine and clonidine. Sweated and woke up feeling like crap.
Yes I went up. I felt sick in the middle of the night. I knew what it was. I guess I'm weak, but slow and steady wins the race. People ask me all the time how many I'm on now. (Friends at meetings) I keep having to say more, then less....and I guess it sounds weird to them. Whatever! I am trying the best I can without a long term detox. Again folks I am NOT getting any high off of these loperamide pills. People keep asking me about my sober date. I say it's 11-17 because that's the day I started to taper. Who knows. That's just the facts. Loperamide acts like a pepto tablet or maybe Nexium BUT It's highly addictive in the fact that if you just quit them after a month of use. (depending on how much you took, metabolism, how long, etc) YOU will feel withdrawals probably. Like the flu X 10. ! That is what my doctor TOLD me to do.
Hey ROADDoggy! Hope you're doing well today. I tell ya, my mood often swings, depending from hour to hour. I post cheery and happy, then later I feel like a liar. I cry in the AM, have anxiety and stomach gets so sore right before I go...then I eat a banana and my stomach gurgles for hours. Then I feel sad and lonely, then I post here and feel better. How's the Valium train going? Are you feeling any better? Are you sleeping better? Some guy asked me about loperamide and I pointed him to you and your journal. I told him you were so helpful and kind to me. Thank you RoadDog,, thank you. You have saved my life just by being around posting. If it hadn't been for your journal, an outpouring of understanding, guidance in this uncharted sea for loperamide users, I would've been lost and terribly alone I fear.:applause:
Love and Hugs to you! GBread
