Hey ladies and gents - any advice would be really appreciated on this matter. I've gradually become dependent/ addicted to opiates. I have a prescription from my doc for a legitimate medical condition but like lots of others, my tolerance has risen and now I'm using IOP's. I really just want to get back down to a manageable level of what my doc has prescribed. I'm not such a heavy user that I'll be horribly physically ill. My problem is mainly psychological I think. I unerstand that I may still have pain issues with the lower dose but I'm willing to deal with that to get back down to my proper dosage.

So my question is - Should I use a benzo to help with the anxiety. I don't believe they will be an addiction problem for me as they don't give me a buzz, just more of a relaxation. I never crave them like I do opiates. I hate to fly and have taken lorazepam forr anxiety and it did seem to help. Do you all think that would work or do I neednsomething stronger. I started tapering a few days ago and while I miss the buzz I don't feel sick BUT I am starsting to feel extremely nervous and fearful zbout getting sick. I ve also started to feel sort of sad and exhausted. Unfortunately I cant really take time off from work to do this.

Any suggestions? Which of the benzo's are best for this? What about adhd meds for daytime? Is this really stupid? I dont want to trade one problem for another but at this point I'm willing to try anything. So I need something to help with depression and anxiety. Any and all advice is welcome. And yes I know thiis is not some kind of recovery board but I figured at least a couple of you have gone through this.

Thanks in advance......

i have heard alot say diazepam has the longest half life and will ease you anxiety as well as helping with muscle spsms nd has a low potetial for abuse. good for you trying to get your usage back under control.

I'd say diazepam as well, but the problem is that benzos and opiates affect different neurochemistry and you're still going to feel horrible. Horrible and groggy from the huge amount of diazepam you'll need. You'll also most likely develop an addiction to benzos in the process, which is even more dangerous than opiate/opioid addiction. All in all, not the ideal situation.

I agree, Diazepam, since it lasts longer, but Clonazpam or Ativan may also be good choices.. Diazpeam would be the best since it has the longest half life.

I don't think benzos would be an issue for me. They make me realt sleepy. Not something I really enjoy but I'm sure it's wise to worry. Thanks for the input everyone.

The only benzo that I have ever liked is Diazepam and it was a blessing anytime I had some of those when I was going through withdrawal.

Oppie only makes you wish you were dead.

Bennie will kill you.

If you believe can use it without trading a piggyback Monkey for a deadly 8000# GORILLA ,,,,,

At all cost I would steer clear of BENNIE

Valiums helped me withdraw from this monkey that climbed on my back. Those who tell "spook" stories about valiums or benzo's i feel shouldn't because if you can control your want/desire for having them, it's a lot easier to kick benny than it is oppie and trust me once you have that off your back, there's plenty of ways to not want benny again. To me at least. Benny was a cure in a way to "disoasciate" myself from the w/d pain of oppie and after i was out of that... good god i was happy. Havne't taken benny since.

I just wanted to add that from what i've heard, some people get addicted to benny's after using them to kick poppy and others (like me) do not. I would listen equally to the people who say benny is dangerous to get into and i would believe them too. But to me it worked to help alleviate w/d effects from poppy and i didnt have a problem stopping ben's after this because i was thankful to be off dope. that is all. cheers.

So benzos have definitely helped. I don't really get any pleasure from them so no addiction issues. I'm back to my prescribed meds. I'll also mention that I also used some Ritalin to helP with the tiredness and depression. So I'm back to prescribed opiates. No additional purchases. The only extra I'm buying now is the Ritalin. I'm sure I need to quit that as well but it's not really interfering with my life and it really helps with my attitude during the day. I used Ativan for about 3 weeks at night to help me sleep as I tapered. I still have to take one every now and then to sleep. Thanks everyone for all of the advice.

Fo me, the Valium and Xanax did help me kick the Oppie. Also being cut off from my doc played a huge part also (frig). As written above, really I'm also happy to be off dope cuz I was on lots at one dark point in my life. I'll save the details. Maybe a bit too much fun as a teen. Paying the price now I'm afraid.

For me now, its Benzo's and Cold Ones!

Diazapam helped me in the past the most, especially with the muscle spasms. Maybe it was my imagination, but I believe it also helped with the fevers/chills/sweats. Tread carefully, though: it is very addictive. What helped me was only having a small supply so I could only use them when I needed it badly.

Most addiction specialists will tell that prescribtion medication is with out a doubt the hardest drug to detox more so then Herion. Herion is out of your system in three days and I am sure they are not an easy three days. Pills on the other hand can take months because of builds up in your tissues and flushes out slowly,

You might want to try a methadone clinc for a month and they will lower the dosing throughout. With out any history as to how long you have been taking the pills and how much were taken daily . It is more for the person taking prescribtion pills for long time.

i have WD from OC 80"s but i hear methadone is 5 times harder to kick than heroin or OC"s. it gets into your bone marrow so its is like a heroin withdraw that lasts 1-3 months!!! god that would be vicious.  i read that this is proven fact . IMO   stay far far away from methodone !!!!
