Thanks for the response. I flushed it all. It's the only way I could do this. I had to take advantage of that one impulsive moment and flush.

Just talked to my on-call person and feeling a little better. This will pass. I think. I hope. Please oh please.

I'm taking buspar, in prep for this, and will go off that once I'm done with the w/d. Taking 10 mg x 2 per day. Taking zoloft for the usual, nortriptyline for nerve pain, metoprolol for migraine (and also helps a little w/ the anxiety), allegra for allergies :), have melatonin, vitamins, imitrex (migraines) and tylenol PM, what else, advil? cold-eez?

Short of upping the buspar which won't help for a few days, it's all gone. Going to go to work, maybe keeping busy will help.
Hi Sky....

Ok.....here is a list of your meds:

Buspar = treatment for anxiety- should not be used with MAO inhibitors

Nortirptyline AKA Pamelor = treatment for depression/hives/PMS/ADD- AKA as tricyclic antidepressant

Zoloft- SSRI anti depressant

Metoprolol AKA Lopressor = beta blocker for high blood pressure

just wanted to give you the clarification of meds you are taking. I'm not a doctor or do I even want to give you any advice whatsoever, but just clarification on your meds.

Take care and I hope your anxiety will pass very soon. I know how hard it can be. Can you go for a walk? I forget do you have kids?

Take care. :cool:
Did you really steal the buspar, which is stronger Ativan or Klonipin
Yes. Stole the buspar from the cat. I know it's sick and funny and sick. And funny. I have to laugh because it's so absurd. And sick.

My cat has social phobia or anxiety disorder or he's just skittish and terrified of everything, don't really know. When they started doing construction here he would hide all the time, so I took him to the vet and they gave me buspar. For him. In attempt to get off the ambien and ativan, I stole his buspar.

I don't know anything about klonipin, sorry. Ativan is strong stuff though. This I know from watching ER. Watching ER is better than going to med school. I know lots of stuff that is probably totally wrong. Like I probably can't use "I need an ex-lap stat" correctly in a sentence.
c/t off buspar or the benzos? I flushed all my hydro, ambien and ativan. I have ultram for a real pain emergency. But really, I love it for the few hours and then want to die when it wears off. I've been okay w/ that one. Probably because have taken it so few times. But I do definitely get buzzed off of it.

I have lots of buspar (I ordered it online, so if I need to give it to the cat, okay, I'm stocked) but just decided to c/t off of that too. That does nothing for me in the way of high. And not a whole lot in the anxiety dept either.

Be careful with the ultram, thats what got me in my situatuion, it has a benzo affect along with the opiate. What kind of w/d symptoms are you having from the benzo and ambien
Hi my friend Sky777! I just wanted to respond to your thread and tell you I know what you are going through.I have really bad anxiety and insomnia too.Are you still taking the buspar? Does it help you? I have never taken it.Is it a benzo? You should try tylonol pm for aches and insomnia(take two) it helps me get a couple hours of sleep.Are you withdrawing from ultram or vikes? How long have you been clean for? Anyways I am going to try and eat a little, I am so naucious(sp?) I have zero appitite.I will check in later.Hang in there girl.I am rooting for you!!
Your Friend,
Kelley.
This time, ambien and ativan. Done hydro w/d, too though. Pretzels are about the only thing I can eat at first during w/d. Pretzels and coca-cola (caffeine-free).

Buspar is a non-benzo, but it doesn't really work for me that well. I'm going off it now, too. I was hoping it would help me through the w/d anxiety.

I've been taking huge amounts of advil. Tylenol PM doesn't really help me sleep, it just makes me really groggy and awake. I was prescribed trazodone (sp?) for sleep during the detox but I think I had a paradoxical reaction to it, I would get really tired at first and then zoom, wide awake. I did sleep eventually though last night, first time in a few days, that's good. Makes me not dread tonight so much. :)
