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
