I agree with Savanna, honey, you can not do this by yourself, you can literally DIE from it. I am serious. You need to get to the ER ASAP, and I know how it feels, you don't even feel like getting up and GOING to the ER, but you've GOT TO DO IT.

PLEASE keep us posted....

Thank you both so much for the kind words and well wishes. The ER is not an option for me as no one, not my husband, not my family knows that I have this probelm so I am truly alone. A trip to The ER, while it's crossed my mind, would result in my getting divorced and losing my 2 kids!!! No can do!!! I figure I got myself into this mess so I deserve to feel this way. It's Day 4 and I feel worsE not better. I took St. John's Wort last night and was able to get some sleep. It's extremely difficult to get up. go to work and try and act normally. EVERYTHING HURTS!!! Thanks for listening and caring. Are either of you still going through this or you have past it and are now clean?

Nobody knows and i have to act normal i cant go to the hospital and im on my second day this is like the fiftyith time i have tried. I have been talkin all forms of opiates for about 10 years i feel like im dying the body pain isnt the worst its the lonleness. its the mental sh*t that is messing with me. savannahann you said to use benydryl? the worse part is i have no family my parents died when i was 10 and i have a brother but he could care less. i cant remember what it was like before pills i have been taking them since i was 18 and now im 27. so does anyone know of anything over the counter that will make this easier.

A) You CAN do this by yourself.
B) Kratom can help, but is mildly addictive (but I have personally used it to get off of a 9year opiate habit!)


Herbs + OTC that CAN help

Immodium (larger doses will help kill W/D's and constipation, immodium is an opiate, but has little to no effect on the CNS)

Benadryl every few hours will help keep the histamines from flooding your system (runny nose, tearing, etc)

Kratom, lessens, and eventually kills all W/D's, but must be used sparingly 1tablespoon 3x day for frist 3 days, then 1/2 tablespoon a day for next 3 days, as an example)

valium, at night to help you sleep...do not use more than a week.

Opiate addiction almost never kills, even with a massive habit.
Benzo addiction and alcohol addiction can kill, but not opiates.

IF you feel you need professional help, please don't hesitate to get it, but someone that has been through detox, methadone clinics, subonex treatment, and at home detox, at home detox is best.

Be prepared to take AT LEAST 1 week off from work.

Aloha to all,

I just had to jump on line and say that I have found some great home remidies that have been working for me. Believe me when I say that I understand the pain your going through trying to look for better less exspencive ways to make it though the days. I have tried suboxone and my Dr kept me on it for over a year padding his pockets while mine got thinner. I feel that the Suboxone Program should be "Free" for all those who cant afford it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but we know that ant going to happend so let's move on and let me share with you alittle about who I am and what I have found that worked for me. The crazy thing is, what works is in everyones reach!

My name is Ryan 31 years old and I live in "Pill Haven" the state of Kentucky. I said Aloha in the beginning because I am from Honolulu Hawaii. Five years ago i left my home "Oahu" Hawaii with my wife and son feeling it was best for change plus being that I met my wife at the time whom was in the U.S Navy station at Peal Harbor while on tour. I made a promise to her shortly after we met that If ever we got Married we would move to where she's from!!! Not sure if I bit myself when I told her that Lol, but here I am devorced now for three years in Kentucky where shes from still wondering what the heck am I still doing here? After my devorce I fell apart lost and lonely getting into Crack, Coke then shortly later I had an acedent and broke my foot real bad. This is where my journey began with pills. While on crutches hopeless and cant walk the Dr precriped me Pain meds not telling me the outcome that later would rip my life apart. Seven months passed on pain pills but starting to walk on my own again I noticed when I wasnt in pain my body was going through some weired mood changes and I couldnt figure out what was wrong! I became hateful and tempered pushing everyone away from me including my love ones. I seeked help and went to a Dr. who told me that I was going through whats called " Withdraws" so trusting that he knew best he precribed me on a new med called "Suboxone" it was very costly but I had a job that was pulling in okay monies so I went with the flow. I was precribed 24mg a day meaning: one in the morning, one at lunch and one before i went to bed which not mentioning didnt help me sleep! The suboxone did help take the cravings away however work slowed and eight months later I was tapered down to 8mg a day half in the morning and one half at night. I started my suboxone treatment in Idiana fortwayne. Later moving back to the KY state I tried to find a suboxone clinic to continue the program but kept been told that I had to be put on this waiting list, I then became affraid because I was out of my supply and knew I was in trouble... The pain came back about a day later withdrawing from suboxone! I knew what this ment! I had to find it on the streets or take the edge off somehow someway. within minutes or hours of searching i got my hads on some oxys!!!! five months later im sitting here broke, with less friends and lost on my ass again!..
It's so crazy how many times I feel I had to start all over again!. Anways enough with the blah blah stories! I found something that has worked for an old junkie like me thats been in my reach this whole time. "It's in your reach too"
I found a support group willing to help me Detox and rest without pre judging while keeping a close eye on things!!! "This requires lost of rest. I rested for three days stright then went to GNC. When I walked in there I was honest and told the clerk what I was there for and that I was going through withdraws! She seemed to be stocking up on the shelf what she felt would help me. She handed me a bottle of Gaba750. it is used to help with my focus. I then went to Natures Way and told the clerk what was happening to me and he was nice enough to have a Book on home remidies and some herbs that people have found to work while going through withdraws. We found that I walked out with what was known to work. A bottle of Valerian Root: helps relax the mind and thought prossess. I found that the valerian root took away most of my nerves from being racked up!it kind of calmed my craving down. I also bought a bottle of L-Tyrosine thats good for the brain neurotransmitter support that seem to help me balance things out "Kept my focus" GNC Men B-vitamin just in case my body needed to restore the negect of years not taking any vitamins at all. It was recomended that I also got a bottle Korean Ginseng to keep up my energy. I started to take these vitamins all together and it has kept me clean with the min of craving and body aches for two weeks now.... Its a start somewhere and I feel awhole lot better. I wake up in the morning with energy and the ability wanted to get into gear. Since taking these "Home Remidies" I've had something to be proud of. I ant claiming that you'll feel 100% but I do know whats it helps you move through the BS without relaps. Try this out, It just may save your life or help put it back on track without using. Today went back to GNC and Natures Way and thanked them for saving my life. Also walked out with a bottle of jack3d that I took for energy that makes me feel like a million bucks!
I continue my fight and for any one who has any questions please e-mail me at

I'm in the same situation, I can't tell anyone can't goo seek help I'm all alone I'm ruining my life I will loose everything if I can't fix this.
God please help me threw this. I have never done any drug in my life, I never thought opiats were so addicting. I just want to get clean and alone. But I know I do not have the mentality or strength to do it alone. I think everyday I can do this but when I run out the side effects take over. I need to get clean I need help I can't afford clinics or anything I need to do this alone. The Dr. Got me addicted they should help me get clean.

my husband and i have been off opiates for 2 months now. We decided to quit when I lost my Insurance and realized we couldnt afford without insurance, a $1000 monthly habit. Honestly we were taking our medicine as the doctor ordered, but we realized we were addicted. We detoxed from home and it was the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. I wanted to die. I would cry and ask my husband to just kill me and get it over with. I would not have wished this on my worst enemy. You have jerks, sweats, mental issues, your puplis are huge, and well you just feel like sh*t. BUT after the first week we could see the light at the end of the tunnel. The 3rd and 4th day was really hard. After the first week things get better each day that you wake up. The bad thing is after about 2 weeks we still had very bad stomach cramps and explosive die-a-rear!!!!! But 2 months of sobriety I am so glad we did it , we have become closer since we went through that together and life is good. You have mental struggles everyday just to get that good feeling you had while on pain medicine. But you get that back through just praying and taking it ONE DAY at a time. I know if you are going through detox now, none of what i am saying is going to affect you mentally but please believe me it does get better and you will feel better in a week. By the way we were on oxycodon and oxycontin. The doctor ( which was not a good doctor) gave each of us 4 oxycodone and 4 oxycontin to take each day. It was powerful medicine and really should not have been given to us.

after years of the same story, i have finally figured out the cure for detox. . . wean by half till your out (days) i give myself 2 days to cry and moan, i use benedryl to rest, and ibu for body pain, bath as hot as you can stand, (meanwhile forcing your self to eat things u can stand, the healthier the better, i do yogurt and fruit and chocolate for every meal. on the third day, i get up and eat 2 eggs fruit and coffee, then i make my self work out, yoga at first, then yoga and zumba when im stronger.  and stay hydrated. and make yourself do tasks, no matter how small, finish it.  and you will be shocked at how fast the stuff looks right to you again,  its allllll about mindset
