Loperamide getting the better of me, need help and support. - Part 175

  1. Wow Starseed, snowdrop, Alca holic, Thank you for all your kind words and support. They are truly appreciated.

    Yes, Its been a rough few years, but we have managed to survive. The Valium taper is rough. It dose not seem to end. But I have better days, once in a while. Im on hold, with my Valium taper right know. Im trying to level out. I guess some of my last cuts where a little big.

    I cant believe you all have read this huge thread. I am touched, that you would spend the time to do so. I know how long it is.

    I would like to add, I'm nothing special. I believe what I did (Kick loperamide) can be done by anyone, with the proper motivation. But Ill never turn down a compliment. Although I could not have done it without all the other members being here for me.

    Again thank you all for your compliment.


    Alco holic, Your not rubbing salt in an open wound, don't worry about that. I have spent too much of my life bottling things up. I don't mind talking about things now. That's how I heal.

    snow drop, thank you also for your kind words. Good to see ya again. Thanks for the support on the Valium.

    Star seed, I see you tried to PM me, so I Pmed you. Much love. Roaddoggy....

    Well Doggie, posted, disappeared, frusterated...

    Found another person who thought they found the magic bullet in Loperamide. He did them for only 2 days when I warned him about the darkside of the Lopes and he was very glad for the warning. Said he threw the rest down the toilette. I am so glad that heeded my warning and will not be withdrawing for months after taking them for a short time !! He posted on the other site or sub-forum in an older thread started by cren under some title about Loperamide. I really hope the word gets out in a bigger way, that Lopes are addictive and the W/D is way worse than any short half life drug.

    Anyway, hope your day was peaceful.

    Well now Roaddoggie,

    How long were you on Loperamide for and how long have you been off for again?

    I know you have been of the Lopes now for over 100 days but forgot how many days you ere taking them for. I know it was not a long time at all.

    And I know you have done brilliantly!!

    Well Nefret I was on Loperamide, for 16 days at doses of around 80mgs. I was on Kratom, for years, before that. Much love. Roaddoggy....

    This is a tramadol taper schedule that someone pm'd me asking for one. I errased the pm so don't know who send it so I am putting it here. The person who followed this schedule found it to be quite humane.

    You make a cut every 4-5 days until you hit 0 or close to it. Best of luck!!

    Starting at 325mg of tramadol or even loperamide : (if your dose is lower than start where you are at on this scale : )

    Helllooooo everybodyyyyy!!
    I finally finished reading this whole thread and can finally post!
    What an amazing support circle you all have here. I feel like I know so many of you after days of reading so many personal struggles.

    Anyway, I found my way here thanks to nefret advising me to NOT try Lopes for opiate withdrawal. I do take them, but not anywhere close to what I would have been if I hadn't been scared to death by what I've read here.


    Long story short I'm a 35yr old addict who has struggled with addiction for 20 years.
    I've done it all but have a love of opiates and cocaine (crack to be specific) but I've been off heroin and crack for over 15 years now.

    I've been struggling with oxy/percocet/vicodin for the past 5 years and have been off again on again, but mostly on for the last year. I have since settled down with my lady (who is sober) and want to get clean and have a future.

    I've been taking 50-80mg oxy/percocet (whatever's available on the street) for about 4 months steady. I rarely feel high but rather just keep myself "alright". I want to stop (and for years I could) but it's the hardest kick I've had since I was shooting heroin so many years ago. I have a job as well, which is great, but makes putting together time to kick very difficult.

    I decided that it's time to get this done no matter what and started scouring the internet for tips/methods and learned of the "magic" loperamide kick. I thought "thank you! I can do this!" I tried it and it seemed to really work! I was down to 50mg is a few days! Then I got the bad news.

    Nefret informed me of the serious dangers and pointed me to this thread. Sure I had read MM's blog but she was the only person I could find w anything negative to say about Lopes. And I certainly wasn't going to take hundreds of pills!?

    So I came over to the Roaddog recovery lounge and started to read. Then I couldn't stop reading! I gotta say, you have changed my mind. While I do still take a few (I've taken 35 pills in 4 days - mind you I haven't stopped my oxys yet) I won't be mega dosing and relying on Lopes to kick. I can't tolerate a 100 day kick. I just can't.

    I decided to try kratom instead, and I am aware of the risk, but it's the lesser evil and I'll need something to help me work. I can't and won't take anymore opiates once I start my kick.... In 6hrs (oh my god panic attack).

    Anyway, I know I'm new, I'm sorry I wasn't around when things were active to lend an ear or a kind word, but I feel like I know you all, and I thank you for showing me it CAN be done and for stopping me BEFORE I fell into a worse trap.

    Thank you so much, wish me luck on my endeavor, I aspire to be as successful as so many of you wonderful people.

    Cheers.

    Feeling pretty crummy about now, but I'm very positive and optimistic. Trying my very first kava tea! Hopefully it's is a help. Even if not, I got this.

    Cheers.
