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.

Do you know of anyone whom the Ibogaine was actually a successf

hydroxyzine was precribed for me for itching (eczema) nwo doc is taking me off it

Have you tried switching out your soaps? My sister bought me "Sappo Soap" it's oatmeal and aloe vera, very mild and lasts long. Also some witch hazel on the areas where the itch is. I've had too many side effects with Hydroxyzine and decided to change up as much as I could- like ALL no allergen detergent for clothes, the oatmeal soap, etc. (Or Basis soap if you can't find Sappo) it's helped a lot for me. Hope it works for you - and make sure you don't have an allergy to Propylene Glycol. I swi
