Re: Hubby's detox day 1 HELP!!!!
i found that gravol ( the pink pills not the lemon lozenges) help to go to sleep. they helped me sleep on day 2 and 3, i slept like a baby surprisingly. Just watch the dosage, I think i was taking a 40 or 50 mg gravol pill, read the box and dont overcompensate cause of the lack off sleep...follow the directions.
Good Luck, tell him the first 3 days his body is going to be screaming for more opiates, but just to keep doing what he's doing. Also think about why he;s trying to get off them, and keep that thought runnning through his head; hes got to want/need this bad!
Best of Luck, and keep us posted....
ps, if hes still going to work, he'll want to wake up an hour or an hour n half before leaving for work, to get into his day, i.e. the gatorade, maybe a walk around the block a couple times, cereal, st.johns wort tea for anxiety, but yeah, allow time to wake up and get his head right/mind focused.
