Quitting Oxycodone with Loperamide- My story begins... - Part 323

  1. Bumble,

    I do not use Clonidine for pain. I actually added it originally as a sleep aide but then my BP numbers were climbing and not controlled on my usual medication so I added Clonidine at bedtime regularly. It fixed my morning numbers. Sometimes it is bad that I can write my own scripts. I do hearts. Not much point having someone with less training managing my high blood pressure! Lol. Anyhow, it helps sleep, anxiety, and does help with muscle issues...so in theory it might help reduce pain sensations. I see my pain guy in 2 weeks. I will ask him about this.

    Hey JD I was just "doing my rounds" and wanted to stop here real fast to give my meager support only to have yet another question pop up.
    I never got colonidine because I already take lisinipril sp? for high BP
    can you take more then one BP medication?
    Anyway, big hugs tough girl
  2. Jungledog
    Yes, most people require more than one medication to get blood pressure to goal. I take 2.

    I have been missing in real life. No missing from here lol.

    Thank you for your lovely words I only just got the chance to read. The situation is worse not better. Our relationship. With my dad. Is over I'm afraid to say. His choice not mine. Also he still refuses to see my daughter. What is he doing ahhhh! No answer to that one.

    It's put me back again in this awful depression. As I'm resistant to antidepressants I don't know how to handle this anymore.

    Enough of my drama lol.

    How are you doing? I hope your taking a well well deserved break girl.

    Your help here is invaluable. Not just your medical knowledge but you. Your one amazing woman and I hope that husband appreciates you.

    I sure wish I could pop over for Tea and a chat :)

    Sending you much of my fairy love. And more. Fairy Dust Magic just in case xxxxx

    Chix and everyone,

    I am doing well. Semester wrapping up. Looking forward to a quieter summer. :)

    Opiate wise I am doing good. No kratom, no oxycodone lately. I deal with my pain by taking gabapentin and Baclofen.

    Today I plan gardening! Hope you are all doing great!!

    Much love,
  6. Mr Bumble
    Gardening is good for the soul. You and nature building your own little sanctuary.

    So glad to hear your clean and doing good my friend.

    Big Love
    Mr B

    Jungledog- just wanted to say hi and that you're doing an AMAZING job getting off and staying off opiates, despite your chronic pain. You've proved to the world that it can be done. You're positive, tenacious, determined, intelligent, and STRONG. So proud of you. How you keep your mind sharp through all this baffles me. As far as I recall, you've not missed any work either. Be proud of yourself, keep up the battle, and thanks for posting everything. You share so much of yourself. Take care.

    Hope you get chance to let us know how you are doing soon girl you are missed.

    Much love xxxxx
