Living Again as You Will
No one but YOU will begin your final end of opiate use. Users don't want to quit because its a self-initiated form of torture. I quit, because I missed my life. I had the help of 1 person I really cared about, and that's all you need, even if they don't know their helping you. Stop taking the shit. Suffer for 24-48hrs. Take (30) 2mg Loperamide, and (2) Zantac, wait two hours. Start convincing yourself you feel a little better for other reasons. Take (20) Loperamide and (1) Zantac... Sleep for the first time in a few days. Feel kind of shitty because of the 20% it doesn't help. But do it while realizing you stumbled on a combination of OTC meds that will free you from the shit. And I use that word very carefully. Opiates are shit. They have taken your life, your kids, your friends, your self-esteem and your health. Now GET IT ALL BACK!
I am a woman in my early 40's and I'm physically active working out 5-6 days a week. I was prescribed/taking Nexium 40mg for severe heartburn/acid reflux, gastrointestinal and esophagus issues. idk the technical term but it did relieve the heartburn, however I had a increase in regergitation after exercise and pain and discomfort digesting whole foods. I stopped taking it without doctors permission. After some labs were done it showed some sludge in my gallbladder but no blockage. After some months of natural cleansing and homeopathic remedies I still had the reflux, only not as severe, a lot of bile burps throughout the day and minor gastrointestinal issues. I re visited my doctor for another option and have been on Zantac 150mg a few days and so far stomach stress is decreased, bile burps are down and heartburn is gone and I ate broccoli and chicken without pain after a few bites.
Seizures following Zantac
After going several years without a seizure, last night I had two, separated by four hours. This was following a day where I'd taken Zantac twice, after not having used it at all for many years--doesn't seem like a coincidence.
Zantac and irregular heartbeat
30+ years ago I had take Zantac for a duodenal ulcer. Since then I have had an ectopic heartbeat where it seems to stop then beats oddly for about 5 minutes. I've noticed in the studies that long term heart beat problems after taking Zantac is at 0% well I can attest that it does happen.
