Switching from Xanax to Valium
84 Replies RSS
PLEASE HELP! For the past 7yrs I've been on 1mg Xanax (3x) per day for anxiety and panic attacks. I take my dosage of Xanax as prescribed by my Dr unless I have a severe panic attack, then I may take an additional (1-2) 1mg xanax when I'm actually having a severe full blown panic attack to stop it. I've been on other Benzos before but Xanax seems to be the only thing that stops the panic attacks when I'm having them. Recently my Dr decided to switch me from 1mg Xanax (3x) per day to 10mg of Valium (2x) per day because he says Valium is "stronger" and has a longer half life than Xanax. He says the Xanax isn't working for my anxiety anymore. From what I've read on the Internet about Xanax vs Valium is that Xanax works better than Valium for panic attacks. I...

Switching from Xanax to Clonazepam?
3 Replies RSS
Met an older new Doctor today. He was very aware Xanax is poison, especially on the way out during a withdrawal. In fact he says it is the worst in its class. Refreshing to hear that, true or not! Doctor mentioned Klonopin works almost the same. I have a huge supply of Xanax right now and I told him that. I also mentioned I almost died during an unsuccessful switch to Ativan. Is Klonopin worth trying ? ## They are pretty much interchangeable, the dosing conversion is an even 1:1 when switching from one to the other and they treat they same things, as well as carry the same risks. It's just trading one benzodiazepine for another. You can learn more Xanax details here and you can learn more Clonazepam details here. The can both be habit forming and create the risk of seizures with sud...

Xanax, what do I have
3 Replies RSS
The pill is oval, white in color. One side is blank, the other is scored in half with what looks like an S on one side and 106 on the other. I'm thinking it's a generic Xanax. Not sure of the strength though. ## An upside down Xanax? S 9 0 1 ## Is there a Xanax 901 S ? I have no idea and am looking to find out what this pill is. What strength it is also. Thank you!! ## Sure there is and its half a MG!

Requip during pregnancy some misconceptions
Post a Reply
I wrote on here last year asking about the effects of requip on an unborn fetus. My RLS was beyond unbearable and the higher the dosage I took the worse the symptoms got. By the time of delivery I was up to 4 mg a day and still only got 2 hours of sleep if I was lucky. I was actually more afraid of my mental health affecting my baby at that point. I recall a few people on this forum shaming me for taking this medication and the risks I was exposing my baby to. My OB shamed me and pretty much everyone using some arbitrary animal study where the dosage was about 10 times higher than a human dosage. I just wanted to report that my daughter is one year old and is absolutely perfect in every way. Not one thing was or is wrong with her. She was born a healthy 7 pounds 8 ounce with no issues. I g

Buro Sol discontinued?
51 Replies RSS
I went to my pharmacy today here in Canada to be told that Smith Kline Glaxo is no longer making Buro Sol. Is this the case and, if it is, what are my alternatives? ## You mean the antiseptic powder? Unfortunately, since it's never been available in the U.S., I can't find much information on it or why it was discontinued. I can't even find a listing of the ingredients. Learn more antiseptic details here. Did you try asking a pharmacist if they can recommend an alternative? I would, but I'm not sure what's available in Canada. ## I currently am using Buro-sol powder with water to make solution. I live in a town west of Toronto Canada and its available here in most if not all the pharmacy's. some are now keeping the powder behind the counter but others have it with...

Doctors Who Prescribe Methadone
270 Replies RSS
I am addicted to strong pain meds and I am tired of having to come of of them the withdrawal is awful I went to a urgent care doc and was prescribed simboxon I take anxiety meds to but he wants me to stop I really need the anxiety meds but he wants me off them how do I get him to change it from simboxon to methadone so I can take my anxietymeds ## Legally, he can't. To get Methadone for addiction treatment in the U.S. requires that you go to an actual Methadone treating clinic, private doctors aren't allowed to prescribe it for addiction treatment. What anxiety medication do you take? Did he say why he wants you to stop taking it? ## Valium and in sc he is licensed to prescribe and treat me sumboxone is like methadone it us prescribed the same as methadone ## how about for neuro...

New to Temazepam-Basic Q's
2 Replies RSS
My psych prescribed me Temazepam 15 mg. He also has me on Lexapro 20 mg & Zanax up to 4mg per day. My fiance went to pick up the rx for me and the pharmacist gave a huge lecture on how I should not be taking Temazepam and Xanax. I initially dismissed that info, feeling that my dr would not have prescribed if there was a concern. However, I read all the blah blah on it causing "sleep driving" and all that stuff, which freaks me out so I didn't take the medication. Does anyone know how common those side effects are? Should I even be concerned? **Additional Info: My benzo tolerance is relatively high due to years of anxiety meds. I also take Norco & Ritalin. Any thoughts or experiences are appreciated. Thanks! ## Is it possible that your doctor meant it to replace the X...

fentanyl patch wearing out
33 Replies RSS
Hello. I am on the fentanyl patch, 125mcg every 72 hours. And ever since starting the patch I have been able to once again be more active. I exercise for an hour every morning and walk in the evening. My dr said the patch will last me 72 hours but by 48 and sometimes less, my pain begins to return and I start feeling withdrawl symptoms I use to feel on oxy or percs. I've tried telling my dr that I need to change every 2 days but he insists that this does not happen to anyone else. Does anyone here have the same issues? And are you feeling better results from different brands of the patch? ## Hello, Jessica! How are you? Your morning exercising may be causing the problem. There are actually warnings with the Fentanyl patch that tell you that anything you get hot, sweaty or overheated...
