Re: any remedy to ease extreme hotflashes from withdrawl?
Hi there-- hot flashes are the worst for me too. Ive detoxed many times off lortabs and percocets and soon i will be w/ding from suboxone. Please keep your fingers crossed for me as I am sooooo friggin nervous about going through it. Anyway, the hotflashes were awful. I would feel one coming on and like you, I would become extrememly angry, bitter and resentful-- plus the hotflash was like a beating--or getting punched in the face. What i have done, was get in a hot hot hot bath. Sounds crazy i know-- but it will ease your muscle aches and the flashes seem to stop--temporarily. Take some niacin (not niacinamide--the flush free kind) because you will want to open your blood vessels and your face willl flush, and drink a big glass of water then sit in the hot tub-- have water by your side to sip on too. Stay in for as long as you can. Drain out some of the water if you have to and fill it back with hot. Then get in some comfy light clothes and lay down. I even took a valium and the bath and it was great-- like a mini-vacation from w/d-- but be careful-- i wouldnt want you to faint or anything. valium was nothing to me, it was only 5mg. Or maybe a muscle relaxer would be good. Anyway, lay down, light some candles or incense-- soft music and rest--- plus a good ol wet wash cloth on the neck helps too-- feel better soon
