Loperamide addiction withdrawal journey need support - Part 17

  1. Day 12: 2 in the am and 3 in the pm WOW can you believe that? I am down to 5 FIVE a day!!!!!

    Holy cow! I just realized I am at 5 five loperamide pills a day! DOWN from 40-50 a day! That's like running a hundred mile marathon!

    Or like climbing Mt. Everest 100 times. Or like swimming the Mississippi River - Upstream!

    Ok I'll stop. But you guys know how huge this is. No, I'm not done. Yes, there's a little ways to go, but I sincerely wondered if I could do it after going up and down and up and down on my taper.

    I am going to keep tapering. I don't see why not. I could jump off. But why? But maybe I should.
    I'll decide that tomorrow.

    Slept 8 hours last night, only slight sweating and panicky once when I woke up.
    Went to the bathroom - it was normal. no nausea or fatigue or sadness YET.


    Much love and hugs,

    Question: Has anyone had rumbling, growling stomach? I haven't heard anyone talk about this. Is it just me? I can be in a meeting and grrrr gurglegrrr - it sounds like an animal!

    It happens before I eat, but it's something I never had before loperamide and/or oxycodone. I was wondering if it's normal. God knows I'll start thinking it's stomach cancer or something. haha!!!

    Loperamide like all opiates suppresses peristalsis. Your gut is just turning back on! No worries.
