Benzo PLUS barbiturate withdrawal, again.


[Ju...]

Recommended Posts

So last year, I came off of alcohol and opiates and barbiturates and benzos and beta blockers all at the same time and it wasn't fun to say the least. I almost died many times.

 

And then a few months ago, I wasn't having any benzo withdrawal for the most part, I was having a really big window, so I ended up quitting my barbituate prescribed by the doctor. Things got really out of hand and extremely uncomfortable and it threw me back a couple of months.

 

And now, the doctor is still prescribing Propranolol which is a beta blocker, and primidone which is a barbituate, and I'm sick and tired of taking meds. But I don't want to have to ever go to the pharmacy again.

 

I want my complete freedom from doctors, and I'm not going to have anybody control me anymore. It's not controlled medicine, but I still have to pick it up once a month just like it is. And because of that, I have to go to the doctor every couple months. I don't want to ever go to a doctor again either.

 

So I need to figure out how to do this barbiturate withdrawal safely so that I don't die. I don't need any more seizures than I've already had, and I don't care if I'm comfortable or not, I just don't want to take medicine anymore and I want to get through this safely.

 

I want to start from scratch, and I don't care if I have the worst anxiety and paranoia and pain in the world, I will get through it regardless. I just need to know what the best method of doing so is, so does anybody have any tips? Has anybody gone through barbiturate withdrawal and benzo withdrawal at the same time like me? Thanks.

Yeah I can't find any info on it on the internet. All anything says is that it's highly addictive and whatever else, even though it doesn't do anything whatsoever. It doesn't work the same way as benzos at all either.

My friend has a specialist ‘addiction’  Dr.

I have asked her what he has said about tapering g it.

She might not be able to reply for a whole though as she is very severely ill from WD.

Send me a PM if you want so I don’t forget who you are of she gets back to me.

Please remember that tapering information and advise must take place on the open forum and not through PM's.

Thanks for the link, when I click on it, there's no article. There's a bunch of headlines but no info. Or maybe I'm doing something wrong?

Justin that is a great goal, to not have any more monthly prescriptions.  I don't know about tapering barbituates specifically, but I do know that beta blockers must be tapered very slowly, as your heart rate is effected by them.  Honestly, I think all tapers should go slow.  I know it's not ideal, to have to fill your prescription for a bunch more months, but taking it slow and steady could set you up nicely for success in getting off the pills safely.

That's true, taking it slow works better than getting ahead of yourself like I seem to do all the time. Last time I tried to cold turkey my Propranolol and primidone, I got thrown into a few month long wave. Or perhaps it was just the benzo withdrawal, maybe both. Either way it didn't go very well.
