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

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.

3 months on Neurontin
You have lymphoma.
Shirley Klumm  |  September 18, 2014
i think neurontin gave me RA. I have been on and off for a few years 5(5 maybe) only because i was on and off insurance. the withdraw is awful ! but the arthritis pain, swelling, didnt go away even after a year of being off. now im going to a specialist because i tested positive for rheumatoid. i think the neurontin caused it somehow or kicked it in maybe. but ive allready read about 4 people having this happen in the 20 minutes googleing. hmmm
april  |  August 22, 2014
I stopped taking the neurontin, weening myself off if it and a month later still having bad arthritis pain. I hope you have stopped taking it as well.
Hi Sonya  |  July 23, 2014
I have been taking Neurontin for about 2 1/2 months and I am having some of the same symptoms. I wake up most mornings with both arms (from my elbows on down) are numb and in pain. My feet swell very mad also and so does my face. I started out taking 100mg three times a day to taking 300mg four times a day. I'm still in constant pain and my mood swings are horrible. My lymph nodes under my arm is also swollen, red, and painful. I have migraines. I totally understand how you feel.

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.
