Quitting Oxycodone with Loperamide- My story begins... - Part 137

  1. Day 47

    Well was jarred awake by my husband and kid! They make enough noise to wake the dead. Anyhow, I am a bit tired and a little queasy. Otherwise I feel fine. Honestly I can't believe this. So I guess tapering loperamide and then kratom works. That plus adding the Gralise seems to be magic combo to stepping off. Seriously working for my pain too. I have read about it and it appears to just be long acting gabapentin so it must be the higher dose that is helping me.

    So I am on Day 2 opiate free!!! I am so happy!!!

    Hey JD how you doing? I am so happy to hear you are opiate free with virtually no wd symptoms! I honestly didn't think you'd have it that bad stepping off so I'm super glad that is the case. Glad your pain is being managed as well. Glad there are other alternatives than narcotics. I remain hopeful for you and others that are suffering from chronic pain, myself included.

    Keep fighting the good fight. You're doing awesome and I'm so proud of you. See, we are all doing it!!

    Have a good day!

    Hi JD, I LOVE almonds! I eat them for their protein because I rarely eat meat. I really like all nuts, they are the best snack.

    I have a really good friend from my college days that was shot and paralyzed whilst he was on a humanitarian mission in Argentina. He was coming home for lunch and unbeknownst to him walked in on idiots robbing his apartment. They shot him in the back on their way out, he was only 20 yrs old. He swears by gabapentin, saying that it's the only thing that works for him. He has tried every narcotic/opiate out there and it just isn't that effective for nerve pain. I am going to have to ask him if he has tried Gralise, and even try it myself.

    I used to be on gabapentin years ago, but it made me really sleepy. I wonder if it will still do that without all the other crap I was on.

    You sound really good! Congrats on 2 days opiate free! Love to you my friend.
