Loperamide Gone Wrong (Possible Journal) - Part 9

By girlondrugs · Jan 29, 2015 · ·
  1. Thank you guys soooooo much!! Like you guys really don't know how much I appreciate your input. My mom knows but she's kind of a hard ass (which I need an am grateful for) but she just doesn't get it
    You know what scratch that, I'm pretty sure she does get it because she was once an addict, but it seems like she just pushes it to the back of her head and wont talk about it or even acknowledge it like I don't know it happened. I didn't see her for 3 years because of her problem. She knows what withdrawals are and how hard they are, I guess she wants me to be like her and push through and fight. I wish I was that tough. Well maybe I am, I just haven't recognized it yet. Sigh.

    Anyway I'm awaiting my 7pm taper to begin so I'm about to eat and have a cup of kava tea. I bought the yogi brand and I read I have to steep at least 2 tea bags so that is what I will try. I will report back later. thanks again you guys

    girl on drugs I think your mom, may need to be informed, of how serious, being addicted to Loperamide, can be. She may have been addicted to something. But wow, Loperamide is a great big grisly Bear, of its own. Its not like kicking other drugs, where you just rst, or kick for a couple weeks, and you get better. That's just not the nature of loperamide. Even cold turkey, you can expect 90 days of hell.

    I only say this, because, it helps to have a support group. A group of folks, who, can understand your tough needs, and help you when help is needed. For me, I had my wife. She helped me, and I helped her. When I cold turkey off Loperamide, she Cold turkeyed off Tramadol. So we were both in withdrawals together. And of course I had, all the loving helpful folk, here on DF.

    On another note, I am also waiting for 7pm, for my nightly Kava. LOL. I am currently kicking Valium, and I find Kava a godsend, for that too. I have also heard a lot of folks, say they used kava to kick drinking. I am a member of another forum, where we discuss Kava in great length, and I am at awe, at the folks who claim, Kava cured there addictions. Anyway, it sounds like Your getting your herbs right.

    With the Valerian Root. I had no luck with the capsules. What I did find out, is that, if (Like Kava) you find the actual root ground up, you will be far more satisfied. Hope your day is great. much Love Roaddog....

    It's 7:23 and I just woke up from a nap.

    I ate and drank my kava tea and finished it around 4 or so. It was very nice. Slept really well. Made me extremely relaxed.

    Now to take my 25 loperamide and another 25 at 7:25am lol

    ^^^ don't know, if you know much about Kava, but its best to drink your tea, on an empty stomach. I generally take my Kava, at around 7, then eat dinner at 8:30. Then go to bed at around mid night.

    You may already know this, but if ya didn't, I thought I would tell ya. We want you to get the most out of your Kava, that's for sure.

    Anyways, you have a good night. I have a valium taper thread, going right know. So I am struggling with Valium pretty bad, right know. I would sort of compare tapering Loperamide, and Valium. Simply because they are both Long and grueling tappers. So Ill be here for a very long time. Much love roaddog....

    I'm glad you have a mom & I'm sorry she was absent for a while--it sounds painful & complicated. Just a couple things while I'm here--daytime naps undermine my sleeping at night. Now, you may be up all night cramming or writing papers & I don't have a clue what I'm talking about but if I take a nap at 3pm, I'll be wide awake at 2am.

    Second, and this could just be my funky chemistry, but alcohol sabotages my efforts at withdrawing as well. I was just thinking that I probably shouldn't have my allotted 2 beers for SuperBowl because my resolve will weaken & I'll probably sleep poorly.

    I'm probably just over-thinking things. I just want you to succeed so badly. Be well, CC
