I dont understand why people who arent hardcore addicts go to subxoone and methaonde when their usage is under 400mg morphine equivalence.

I made the mistake of going on methadone for 60mg oxymorphone a day. I made it off with the help of clonidine and valium. It was a breeze.

I completely believe in the power of clonidine + benzo detox.

I even had a friend who went into precip WD's from subs (600mg of oxy) and he took .2mg clonidine and in 20 mins he felt so much better. We even went to the mall to eat junk food and watch a movie.

I took benzos to after a 10 drinking bender. Worked pretty good as long as you have the willpower

I think I read somewhere that furfags have a gene that makes clonidine more effective in them.

Lol.

I read somewhere that clonidine at high doses can lead to cardiac arrest.

Clonidine+Ondansetron+Flexeril+Loperamide+Advil should be handed out in combo packs to addicts and high addict density areas. Those five alone make WD go from can't be in public to maybe halfway pulling it off at work. Toss in either a low dose benzo or gabapentin/pregabalin (or both), as well as kratom even just for a week in reduced doses, even using the combo just for a week for most opis and 2 weeks for suboxone/methadone/PPT/PST, and it seems like WD drops by 50-99% depending on your personal variables.

I had bottles of these things from various rehabs and shit and still have only taken these things a few dozen times. Idk what it is but they make me feel terrible. Like sleepy in a real bad way like I'm gonna pass out any second so I rarely took the stuff. Like other people said though it does seem to stop the cold sweats and the purgatory of having to constantly take a blanket off myself and put it back on.

>giving out Flexeril to addicts
(not to mention expensive Ondansetron)
They should give out naltrexone and loperamide. I think Clonidine can increase chance of fatal od which is a reason why its scheduled.

I've twice gone into the ER and asked straight up for Clonidine and Ondansetron to help with acute opioid withdrawal and they always prescribe it for me. I'm usually in heavy sweats while shaking and nauseated so its pretty obvious to the doctors. I've also done methadone detox which suuuuuucked.

So I tapered down on the methadone over like 4 months and when I dropped off finally at like 0.5mg a day I STILL had terrible acute withdrawal for a week or so. So not only did I have to go through 4 months of low-level uncomfortable withdrawal but I then still got the full withdrawal experience anyway.

My experience with clonidine/zofran was much different. The clonidine pretty much completely ameliorated all of my withdrawal symptoms. Particularly my worst symptoms of sweating and extreme RLS (where my limbs would suddenly spasm around randomly) My biggest complaint about the Clonidine was that it made me feel like DEATH. Like someone had drained all my blood and I was about to die lol. I'm a string bean @ 180cm and 54Kg. Just a single clonidine really dropped my blood pressure a ton and just made me feel so tired and out of energy. The zofran along with a bit of cannabis handled the nausea/vomiting/appetite rather well compared to no help at all. Lots of chicken soup and poweraid and I got through the worst of it.

Would NEVER do a taper again. Its just not worth it in my experience. Its far easier to just jump off right away and have the right medications to handle the symptoms.
