For Opiate Withdrawal: loperamide -or- Klonopin/other benzos.
Should have shortened my first comment. Anyways, I started out with 74mg the first day (40, 20, 14) and tapered down to 8 today. I also used cimetidine (Tagamet).

Loperamide has taken away most if not all of my withdrawal symptoms. A week ago I was on about 140 mg of vicodin a day.Today should be the last day I'm on loperamide. This is the second time I've used this med and I have to say it's been a "miracle drug" for me. The worst thing for me during withdrawals are restless legs.

Generic of Klopipin, Wellbutrin, and Viibryd
May I suggest you find a doctor who will help wean you off chemicals using natural amino acid and high levels of nutritional therapy?

Lisa, this sounds like more than a depression for the realm of family and friends, though a listening ear from someone close is still invaluable. I have some questions to ask you before I give the rest of my comments. Respond here that you got this and we can continue this privately.

Lisa, if you are feeling depressed you should reach out to family or friends. Do you have anyone you can talk to?

Bad Sleep Aid, Great Creativity Aid
I've found it is better to take Ambien on an empty stomach. I am able to fall asleep faster and stay asleep. If I take the Ambien on a full stomach it just puts me in a comfortable doze.
