quick question

I was addicted to vic's before and went through w/d pretty bad for 2 weeks.The worst part was not being able to sleep.Well dumb me started again and have been taking 5/500 a day for about a month and a half.Well I haven't had any for 1 week today.I have been really really cold,going to the bathroom alot and can't seem to keep food down.Im not sure if I'm withdrawing because I am sleeping fine and other than going to the bathroom alot and being cold I feel ok.This is not the hell I went through before.Could this be w/d?

Re: quick question

Thanks!Iam Thanking God trust me.Im just not sure if this is w/d or a virus.The last time I was so so very sick and couldn't sleep for two weeks.I still go to the bathroom right after I eat ,so food is not staying in my system at all and I do have minor chills but thats about it.

Re: quick question

Hey Daisy,
Sounds exactly like my withdrawal. I also ran a low grade fever for a week. Had major fatigue so maybe that's why you're sleeping well. Were you taking more and for a longer period of time previously? Maybe that's why this w/d is not as bad. Sure sounds like w/d to me. You'll feel better soon but prepare for depression. I don't know if you went thru that last time but it sure hit me hard after the physical w/d was over. It's been over 2 months for me. I still freeze all the time and am taking Lexapro for depression. As for the freezing, I'm one of those people that are always cold and the weather is starting to get colder around here, but it was definately worse with the w/d. Hang in there and stay away from the pills.
Best wishes,

Re: quick question

Thanks granny.Yes the last time I went through this I had been on them for almost a year.Im cold all the time too and we just moved near Buffalo Ny so it is really starting to get cold here.If only we moved to Hawaii!!!LOL!I did have a little depression last time but not too bad,I have two boys a hubby and a golden who all run me ragged so I don't have much time to be depressed or maybe I am but don't have enough time to think about it.Cold crappy weather is depressing thats for sure.Im just really mad at myself for starting them crappy pills again,man can I be dumb at times.I think I started again because we moved and I needed the extra energy and they are so easy to get around here.The last time the w/d's were so bad you think I would have learned.Im going to look in the paper and see if I can find a na meeting to go to.It's worth a shot.Thanks alot and have a great night.
