Parkinsons Symptoms While On Xanax
I had been on anxiolytics and felt like a piece of shit when i quit. But now I am perfectly fine and have recovered all the strength and confidence. It is just a matter of time before you regain all your strength and confidence.
You are doing great  |  October 4, 2014
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

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 :)
benzobuzzer  |  August 12, 2014
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

HIDA Scan
I was allowed to take Xanax before mine because I was over the top woth nerves. In fact, in addition to the 1 MG I took before I left for the test, I asked the nurse if I could take another after the injection...she let me even tho she said it was a waste, the test was no big deal. Which it wasn't but I can't control my anxiety.

Metaprolol vs. Verapamil
Glad to hear that. I was on Verapimil for 5-6 years but finally had to stop due to out of control gum swelling (a side effect). Was put on Metaprolol earlier this year, but now am experiencing severe joint pain throughout my body. Going to ask the doc soon for something different.

Blood Clot
I am on Metoprolol Succinate, 25 mg twice a day for BP control. My pulse can go down to the 50's but it is mostly between 60 and 80 during the 12 hours till next dose. I recently had an eschemic stroke and I am wondering if it contributed to the clot, along with Hydrochlorothiazide I was taking.

Shortness of breath and Metoprolol
Metoprolol is a generic is generic of Toprol, and can be obtained at $4 for 30 days at Kroger Pharm. But you need to try something else and make sure you tell your doctor that you want generic. Most generic works as well as the brand name, but the doctors are fed and entertained by the pharmaceutical companies to prescribe the brand name, BRIBERY?
