    another update for whomever may be interested....

    still feeling good mentally, although tired from no sleep, but thats expected. Ive got that slight feverish feeling that just lingers but nothing too bad. One definite good thing is that the loperamide seems to be finally reaching the end of its actual effect. Started having some slight cramps about every hour since midnight and this morning finally got some gastro relief. It hasnt gone into the runs yet, but i guess thats just a matter of time. Sorry for the TMI.

    I do have one question to anyone that has sucessfully quit and stayed off opiates. Has anyone had problems with excessive sweating (in my case its only from the armpits). Im not talking about the detox sweats from hot flashes, im talking about days or weeks later when all other symptoms are gone and you suddenly sweat beads out of nowhere. Once again some TMI, but the two previous times i kicked i had this really stinky sweat only from the armpits. I would say it was even one of my relapse triggers as i was avoiding social activities due to the smell and even flunked some college classes since i was so embarrased and self-conscious about it and didnt go to classes.

    Anybody else have this? any solutions for it? im only asking now because for some reason it has already started and its annoying as hell

    I always sweat on them, But sweating is a normal withdrawal symptom
