Hey everyone, My first post here. Long story short, I found myself doing way too much poppy seed tea for a long period of time. Most of the last 4-5 years. I am on day 6 of withdrawals, and my mega dosing loperamide is really coming back to haunt me. Day 5 was finally bearable, but that was only because my last dose of loperamide (60mg) was taken on day 4. On day 5, I significantly cut the lope down to just 30mg taken as 20mg then 10mg on day 5. Was surprised at how bearable day 5 was, but then woke up day 6 DEFINITELY withdrawing from the lope now. I have only taken 18mg lope today (day 6). I tried to take none (wishful thinking), but was just horrible...almost day 1 miserable. I must admit that I have now, on day 6, taken probably a 1/20th dose of poppy tea to just get some relief. I understand PST is full of alkaloids and I'm withdrawing from all 40 of them. The lope is my concern now, in addition to how much my tiny PST dose will reset the initial withdrawal. I want to finally quit, I really do, and I have managed all week off of work, but I have to return in about 6 days. I'm pretty worried that I'm not going to be able to hack it. Tired of failing and letting everyone I care about down. --- Double Post Merged, Nov 7, 2017 --- I should mention that my dosage eventually became astronomical depending on the quality of the seeds, and that I quit cold turkey.
