Ativan Withdrawal - Articles

Ativan Withdrawals suck!!! by Carrie Ostrea Posted Fri 02 Jul 2010 10:02pm We have been going nonstop since we brought Hannah home on Tuesday.   We were fortunate enough to get 11-hr a day nursing on Wednesday and Thursday, and we will get more nursing this weekend (8 and 6 hours), and then 11 hours a day Monday through Wednesday.  Then it will be a fight with our insurance company because they only do it to “transiti ...

PCU, Day #34, Withdrawal Hell by Carrie Ostrea Posted Sat 19 Jun 2010 4:03am Yesterday was a tough, tough day. Good news is that Hannah’s choreathetoid movements are now finally starting to show signs of lessening. This gives us hope that these neurologic movements are only temporary, most likely drug induced. Bad news is that now we are starting to wean the final sedatives (pentobarb, methadone, and ativan), t ... Read on »

And because things around here are starting to look like they're settling down. But we learn ... Read on »
Back in the hospital by Carrie Ostrea Posted Sun 04 Jul 2010 4:31pm Yesterday was very rough.  Quite a few exploding diapers with water diarrhea and a couple of times, she spit up what she was being fed. Our day nurse yesterday never commented on it, and looking back, there were so many red flags that he should have caught and should have sent us to the ER immediately in the late morning after what we had b ...

Rotavirus attacks! by Carrie Ostrea Posted Tue 06 Jul 2010 7:56am Hannah has been in the hospital since Saturday.   I just talked to Daddy, and she has been doing really well over the past two days!  She is tolerating her feeds well, she is not throwing up anymore, and she looks good.  Even better, she is almost done with the Ativan withdrawal!

2010 ~ A Look Back by Carrie Ostrea Posted Sat 01 Jan 2011 3:10am Twenty minutes until the clock strikes midnight here.  Everyone is asleep, even Daddy.  We had a very quiet but nice evening at home with the kids.  We had BBQ meatballs, potato chips, carrots and dip, and made-to-order ice cream sundaes!   We celebrated the Disney Channel East news years, so the kids were able to have the new year celebration ...

OK withdrawing sucks by akontarinis Posted Tue 15 Jun 2010 12:00am I can endure pain, lots of it but withdrawal from Decadron is killing me. I just switched over to 2mg from 3mg and I am about to keel over. I have no energy, am in constant pain, fell on our walk today, and have the stamina of an 80 year old. Just complaining is all. I have that right, right? Every single part of my body aches. ... Read on »

Goals of buprenorphine treatment and generic Suboxone by SuboxDoc Patient ExpertHealth MavenFacebook Posted Thu 22 Jul 2010 9:38pm A question in response to a recent article, and my answer.  My primary point is to address what buprenorphine maintenance CAN do– which is far more than simply ’replace’ opioid agonists.  I recently received a message from an AODA counselor that totally misses the point of buprenorphine;  a message that did what the anti-sub crowd typically doe ...
