  1. Lg, don't worry about using this thread. That's what its there for :). I'm not sure about meds but it was brought up yesterday so I figured I would look into it. I've been told they can help but its something I need to think about first. There seems to be a lot of good info about them and they seem to be helpful so I'll just have to consider and discuss it further.

    Day 25,

    Been watching the ID channel all day and I don't think its such a good thing to do LOL. There are some sick people out there!

    Anyways, WD wise, I feel fine today. I haven't felt any symptoms from it that I know of. My sleeping patterns are still all over the place but I'm not so sure it's from that.

    My back was hurting pretty bad yesterday so that kind of sucked. Hot baths didn't do much for it. I was given a non narcotic med when I first stopped taking them for the pain but I filled it and kind of forgot about it. I took 2 last night as prescribed and it helped a little but mainly made me tired. Not complaining there but I'm not sure if I like it because there are times that it would be needed earlier in the day and I can't always sleep when I take it.

    JD, are you familiar with Robaxin? (Sorry if the spelling is wrong) any issues with it that you know of? I don't plan to use this very often actually. Maybe once a week tops but there are days that the pain escalates beyond the point that I consider manageable.

    Wow, first of all welcome! I'm new here too.

    I can relate in a way, I'm withdrawaling from a script of Paxil, and it's the damned hardest thing I've ever had to do. I quit last week, too!

    What I did when I was overwhelmed and scared (I actually had crying fits), was look up information on what was in the medicine, so you know what exact drug or drugs you're withdrawaling from.

    I found it to be serotonin, so I went online to look for supplements and found an "5-HTP" supplement with great reviews from Dr. Oz, so I decided to try it. Today I got it and am testing it out. :)

    I was told mine would be between 2 weeks to a month to feel completely normal again. But mine was only around 9 months straight.
    I wish you luck in this journey, my friend!

    What is the ID Chanel? We don't have cable.

    Smith,

    Robaxin is a muscle relaxant. It tends to make people super tired so I would just take it at night if you need it. It will provide relief if the pain is muscle pain. Won't do much if anything for bone pain.
