Apparently, it doesn’t count if your not on the left. That’s the price you pay for personal anecdotes. Which I don’t normally share unless asked, but I was asked. The difference between now and then is there was no fear. Everybody knew where everyone else stood. Now you have to be afraid someone my dig up something you said 20 years ago and get you fired and doxed. And just because they don’t like they way you think. Fortunately, I have always kept a low internet presence and no social media.
Doesn’t really matters what it means to you. Getting along starts with leaving people alone to live their own lives and not trying to force conformity of language and thought.
That’s not what it does though. It just blocks the drug. The naloxone blocks the action of the opiate, not just parts of it. It’s supposed to technically be inert in suboxone, it’s just there to prevent misuse. But it ends up blocking the some of the buprenorphine requiring higher more frequent dosing. Headaches is the biggest side effect of long term use. Diarrhea is a close second. Again, talking about use for a year or more, not short term use.
It appears that naloxone does seem to block benzo effects too. I am not aware of ‘new’ benzo’s, though may exist.
That’s perfectly normal if you took them as directed instead of as needed. And you may have needed them, no judgement from me. But if you have taken them for longer than a week, having a couple of sleepless nights, or maybe even a little night time anxiety is normal. Tapering probably would have made it easier. But if the issues only last a couple of days, I don’t think that’s too big a deal. Anxiety is a bitch and it can be crippling. And when you come off opiates, anxiety is mindbogglingly high. That’s why it’s prescribed.
For some people, smoking is the hardest. But I don’t judge folks. Smoke 'em if you got them. I like the smell. Reminds me of my youth.
Stay the hell away from Bupropion. It’s the worst drug on the market, IMO. It has been known to alter peoples behavior permanently. I was prescribed it for a different reason and it took me a year to get over the side effects. They are harsh. Severe anxiety and sleeplessness and rage are normal side effects. It should be off the market, if it’s not. I have several anecdotes of people who took it to quit smoking and they lost their ever-loving minds.
I am a pretty mellow dude and I found myself getting really angry at the slightest aggravation. I knew something was wrong with me. My doctor didn’t know what was up. I told him about the issues I was having and he gave me xanax. I finally did some research and the ‘common’ side effects read like my story. I never took it again after that day. The sleeplessness and anger abated fairly quickly, but the anxiety lasted for over a year. It may that I was also going through a lot of shit at the time, but the anxiety was so bad I felt crippled, like afraid of everything. I just wanted to hide so nothing could get me, but I was so wired up I had to do something all the time. After getting off, did I realize how bad I actually felt on it. It did cut cravings though.
I’d say your better off just smoking. It’s not worth feeling like that. One day, I just decided to stop, got the patch and was done. You’ll know when you are ready.
RUN! Don’t do it man. Sure maybe my side effects were just me, but I have heard my story in others more often than not. So those side effects maybe more common than they are not. You’re better off just smoking until you truly done. Or you can vape, or you can dip. Bupropion is an awful drug, it fucks with the brain too much.
I cannot think of a more offensive term for people drummed up by uppity white liberals than latinx. I prefer spic to that. I prefer any other racial slur to that. What are the common slurs for Cubanos anyway? I prefer to be just a person than any other label, really.
It chills ‘cravings’ it won’t stop you from wanting what you want. You just won’t have visions of dancing cigarettes in your head.
I’d say if you want to quit, really want to quit, then get a vape and gradually move the nicotine level down to zero. Then it’s just a matter of breaking the puff, hand to mouth habit. And no, vapes are no where near as bad as cigarettes. It doesn’t stuff up your sinuses, it doesn’t make your lungs feel heavy, etc. They aren’t perfectly healthy, but its the best alternative to smoking I know of. That’s just my opinion though.
If you use bupropion, you’ll turn into a dick and nobody will like you.
