I read this and said, AHA! When I used Abilify with Lexapro, it was a terrible combo! But, doesn't mean it's not working for you. I believe that meds as these make our libido go out the window! Ask your Dr if he/she can add something else to correct the loss of sex drive, because it happened to me and it can get better! Good Luck and Congrats on your admirable long marriage!

You deserve a big bear hug! You can do this girl!!! Dig deep and come out fighting. Time to take back your life.........sara
I logged on this morning and saw your post and nearly crumbled. Seem like we keep running into the same problems. Take the clonidine, it does help alot with the shaking and headaches. Stay off the sleeping pills. You know what to do and you know how to do it. Remember it and get back on track. It won't be as bad this time around, three weeks and you'll have a clear mind and body.
You deserve a big bear hug! Change that mood and make it a positive one. You arent scum, you are human. Come out fighting again......You can do it and we will be right beside you. sara
You deserve a big bear hug! I can related.. Im in the same boat, but I am ready, willing and able to get back on track.. Ive been panicking for weeks now knowing this is coming but now that tomorrow is almost here, I am calm and ready and actually excited..
I wrote this long ol note and it wouldn't let me post. So i'll cut it short.
What is triggering the craving? You've been so clean for so long. You know it isn't an easy fix to go back on it. You also know that it's a cruel trick that our mind is playing on us. Stay strong my friend. Stay strong. You've already got this beaten, it's just another test of will-power that you will beat easily.
what is the website you mention
regarding adipex? thanks
You are right, i'm not an addict. Yeah, i made it through the weekend and then somehting weird happen. I got a call from my surgeon, because he got a call from my primary doc, the same doc i went to to get help for the detox. The surgeon told me i couldn't stop fully yet, just limit my intake or just take it at night so i won't shake so much. I'm still in the healing process and i didn't need the shock to my system. after a heart to heart with him, we are working on a rapid taper, a month or so. It was really good to see an old friend. I'm going through alot of things in my life and that seem to be the trigger. I removed as I can the trigger from my life, so I hope this time, everything will be better. You hang in there.
You are an inspiration to me!!! We started around the same time last year kicking the same DOC. After three weeks, i was starting to feel better, that last for 3 months and then i went ahead and got injured again. Tried my darnest, but nothing work except for the opiates. Became a bigger addict than I was before. I've taken care of the root cause, finally had the surgery. Funny how things work, it was exactly this coming weekend last year that i started my detoxing process. I'm all geared up and ready to do this again, and hopefully this will be the end of it.

Congratulations! Time for a celebration...
Lady67. Congrats on you being clean. I hope I can say that in 200 days. Since I have very high blood presure do to my kidney disease I can't go cold turkey. My bp would go sky high and cause me to have a seisure. This is the best way for me. I agree some can not do it this way and Cold Turkey works best for them. I am no expert. Shoot I am still an addict. I am now on day 5 and went down to 4 a day last night. So far so good. I have the RL and the body aches but they are not as bad as they were all week last week. All I wanted to let him know was that he needs to tell someone that can help him. If you try to get off on your own without support you will not do it. I tried twice and failed. I had to finally tell my husband I had an addiction. Thank God he wants to help.
Happy Holidays! Wishing you & yours a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Happy Thanksgiving! enjoy your time off...you earned it...have a great day...
