    No I didn't know its best to take it on an empty stomach. Now I will do that. It's 2:32 am here and I am about to go to bed. I have a 10:15 class and a 12:40 class today. (Yay). At least it gives me something to do.
    I heard tapering and quitting Valium can be tough and I wish you all the best. I'm going to pop in on your thread 2mrw to say hi :) And yes I wish my mom would understand when I tell her that loperamide addiction is not the bees knees but she just doesn't get it! I'm glad I have you guys. I told her a little while ago that I made friends on the drug forum and she looked at me like I had eight heads. I told her i would rather talk to people who knows what im going through and can help me. unlike some nurse at her job (my mom works at the Veterans Hospital ) who kept telling me shit i already knew. most of the nurses/one doctor ive spoken to didnt even knkw you could take immodium for withdrawls, let alone gwt addicted to it. I also had one nurse said they have never heard of anyone being addicted to tramadol! Like what the fuck? Anyway then my mkm went on to tell me she printed out a couple pages of stuff for me to read. I got the papers and it was all general info on immodium and withdrawals and blah. Like C'mon really?
    I know she means well but....sigh

    I'm glad I have never had a problem going to sleep. I'm usually always sleepy at some point so I can take three naps and still go to bed at night. Unless I'm in pain or withdrawls of course. I once tried to use alcohol for my withdrawals and it was a huge mess. Didn't work. I'm so glad I don't ever really drink. I'm a social drinker/smoker. I'll drink the nice fruity stuff and smoke weed when I'm around others but not by myself. Plus I never go out anyway so there's that lol
    and thank you so much, I want to beat this as well. We all can. One Day At A time. :)

    I think I'll have a cup of kava before I go night night. I can do that right? Shrug. Then my 25 loperamide at 7:25am.

    I made a tapering schedule too. I should post It. It's only up to day 6 though. I don't know how many I should drop after day 5.

    girlondrugs added 47 Minutes and 52 Seconds later...

    Took 4 Valerian Root capsules and still sipping on my tea :)

    Hey girlondrugs,

    Well done on what you have accomplished to date. I'm aware that you're currently tapering and using Kava & Valerian alongside the loperamide. Have you thought about what you're going to do when you finish the taper?

    You mentioned that you don't go out at all. Is this going to be different once you're clean?

    I've not met many sociable heroin (or opiate) addicts in my lifetime and I was a very anti-social addict in many respects. Stopping my addiction was not just about stopping taking drugs - which is big milestone in recovery - but was and IS about what I do each and every day to ensure that I don't go back to my previous life. If you want to know more, feel free to ask or send me a message.

    My concern is that you get to the end of your taper and then you feel like "what am I supposed to do now?" - A question that has caused many an addict to chase their tormented tails like crazy.
