I'm on day 6 and doing well. Lots of supps and vitamins and all that good stuff. Have the ability to rest when I want, etc. The hardest part right now is that the "chills" won't stop. It's not even like being cold. It's just so uncomfortable and so weird. I tried the Immodium AD (took 4), but that didn't do much good. Anybody recommend taking a bigger dose of Immodium to help the w/d? Has anyone actually had good success with it reducing the "chills". Any help much appreciated.
Hot baths will really help with those chills. you will feel so much better afterwards. if your not a bath person, a nice warm shower will also be super relaxing for you and helpful.
I had chills for weeks, its part of the W/D process and it will pass Iknow it sucks . Motrin works well as does Advil or tylenol for the body aches and should also help with those chills I to was freezing all the time and had goose bumps.
I don't know much about immodium but that it helps with the runs.
Just a helpful hint... Benedryl is the same medication that is in Unisom and it will help you sleep. I only suggest it over the Unisom because you can normally find a "store" brand of benedryl at most grocery or drug stores for a lot cheaper than Unisom is. Good Luck!
Immodium is good for diarrhea. If you are having that problem also the pills I have found do not work for me. The liquid Immodium works the best.
For the chills a hot bath. Also a heating blanket or throw. I did not have time to read all of the other posts so if I am repeating sorry. Ibuprofen relaxes me so if the chills are making you really uncomfortable that might help.
yes take about 6 immod. ad and see if that helps with the w/d.if not take another and see if it helps.if not take another and go like that.it should help with all the w/ds not just the runs as most people think.good luck-spark
