Parkinsons Symptoms While On Xanax
After much research, I've found that high doses of Xanax taken for a long time are the biggest culprits to permanent damage or long-term withdrawals.

If you stopped abruptly, you may have caused yourself more discomfort than necessary. My research shows that 1mg daily rarely if ever causes permanent damage. Try meditation, yoga and breathing exercises while you creep through this tunnel -- and may it be short and over soon. I think you will be fine although your thinking in a fearful way may

I can see this ---definetly things about aparalzom or xanax that i am experieencing that are like parkinsonian symptoms. I stopped and am having extreme weakness in hands and shaking. I am scared I have damaged myself permanently and I was only taking 1mg daily.

Opiate and xanax painless detox
There is an herb that actually helps called kratom. That isn't the actual name of the herb more the brand that carries it, but it was amazingly helpful for me coming off of opiates.

...for some reason it cut my comment short?! But do you know of anyone that the Imogaine worked for?? I must check into these herbs, though not sure if they are legal in Europe. But thanks for your post really honest and informative...keep up the good work on getting to the place where you need to be :)

Hey Thanks for your contribution, I was also in a similar situation to you, though I have never tried the Ibogaine route and have always been interested in trying it out. I've gone cold turkey so many times from alcohol, drugs and the rest...but have always ended back on some slippery slopes. The last time which I am still battling also involves an injury where opiates and benzs were prescribed I am now one again stuck in this rut. Do you know of anyone whom the Ibogaine was actually a successf

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.
