Oxycodone and Risperidone Withdrawals
Oxycodone and Risperidone withdrawals are involved and not fun. The symptoms of long-term addiction and withdrawals are similar and in some areas, they overlap. I was on opioids and Risperidone for 28 years, so I know I am addicted to the opioid. I know it is putting me in withdrawals from Risperidone because of the length of time of use.
The CBD serving size I am taking each day is 5 drops twice daily of the 1000mg. So far it is handling my anxiety and with the Lyrica and Mestinon, it taking care of my pain also. Mestinon is much more than a pain medication for it is my primary medication for Myasthenia Gravis. I need for it to be taken as ordered for I must protect the needs of my body where the MG is concerned.
Further Withdrawal Symptoms For Risperidone
A bad temper is not usual for me, as I usually don’t feel well, and don’t have the extra patience for nonsense. Being Bipolar 1, it has been a long time ago since I gave myself permission to have a disagreeable temper! About seven days ago I started being angry, and I didn’t know why? But I was ready to get angry about anything, from a nuisance phone call to an imagined slight.
A bad temper takes a lot of energy that a Myasthenia Gravis patient doesn’t have. I check further on the drug interactions with my medications and found there was a contraindication for Seroquel on Marijuana due to its antipsychotic properties. I realized there was my problem with Risperidone, and when it came time to take it that day at 6 pm, I chose CBD and said, no more Risperidone.
CBD Will Meet My Antipsychotic Needs
Tonight is the 5th night of no more Risperidone, and close to the end of the 3rd week on the CBD. It is the second-week ending tomorrow night of coming off the opioid Oxycodone. I am taking 1/2 pain pill 6 am and 6 pm with pain controlled better than it was at a whole pill every 6 hours. I am amazed! I am not forgetting the Lyrica and Mestinon, but they were also in place all along.
I have the flu-like symptoms of upper respiratory infection and gastric problems, cramping, and diarrhea. My anxiety is much better and I am convinced CBD oil is doing its work for me! So far no confusion, delusions, nightmares, or mania. In the next year, I will see if I am in for an episode of mania or if age and CBD will meet my antipsychotic needs.
As I Withdraw From Oxycodone
As I withdraw from Oxycodone, I am staying on Lyrica and CBD as my primary inflammation medications as they are working extremely well. Lyrica has been my inflammation and pain medication for Fibromyalgia for several years so I know I tolerate it well. CBD is new to me but it is in there working even better than I could I have expected.
Mestinon and Meclophenlomate are taking care of the Myasthenia Gravis and my eyes are still symptom-free.
Last Oxycodone Yesterday Morning
Yesterday morning, I took 1/2 Oxycodone as I had been taking for the last two weeks. Last night at 6 pm I didn’t take 1/2 an Oxycodone, it just seemed like it was time to let them go. I prepared myself for a long night, an increase in diarrhea, in nausea, in pain and in general discomfort. Instead, I went to sleep early.
I awoke at 1 am in no more than uncomfortable pain and took my midnight medications, Lyrica and others. I am confined to my bed or recliner by the Myasthenia, but I think it would be much better if I could get up and do something. I would like to clean the house or go outside and work in the yard.
Before Oxycodone Withdrawal
It is not hard for me to remember the bone searing pain I woke up with three weeks ago. It was horrible and it was regular as clockwork. I had to make myself move just enough to take a pain pill, and then lie there for about 45 minutes before I could move and get up and go to the bathroom.
What changed was CBD oil! Taking CBD oil drops I no longer woke up in pain in the extreme. As my pain lessened, I thought there is hope for coming off of the opioid Oxycodone. I had been on an opioid for twenty-eight (28) years, and with the extent of my pain, I saw no way of coming off of it.
More Oxycodone Withdrawal
4:40 am in the morning and my pain level is very much in a comfort zone.
I went to sleep. Here I woke later in the morning with flu-like symptoms and started Blogging on NaturalRemedyCBD.com
Thank you for reading along with me! Please leave me a comment if you wish!
I will be Blogging here while I change the type of pain medication that I use. With the basic pain medication being Lyrica, the one I take for my Fibromyalgia, as it is not an opioid.
