Loon-A-TiK Posted October 24, 2007 Share Posted October 24, 2007 i get my meds for free through the drug companies, including my adderall from shire. i didn't realize (dumbass me) that i had to send them a new application and script every 6 months to keep up my free adderall. i went to the pharmacy to get it, and they told me they couldn't give it to me unless i paid full price, because the card had run out. fine. so in the meantime, i contacted my pdoc and tried to get the application in. it generally takes shire a few days to process an application. i told them i was going to have withdrawl unless they hurried, but it doesn't seem like it really matters to them. the first couple of days were surprisingly fine. i thought i was out of the woods. then, last night, it hit me. i had horrible shakes, cold sweating, a fever, headache from hell, and threw up. i couldn't sleep. i was about ready to go to the hospital when i remembered that my pdoc wanted me to take Z if i had an emergency before going to the hospital, so i thought gee, why not. i took 5mg of Z. somehow, it took the edge off the withdrawl symptoms and put me to sleep. i didn't take any today, but it's there if i need it. why did Z help?i can understand it making me sleepy, but i've never heard of it being used for withdrawl. i just tried it because my pdoc wanted me to always try it before going to teh hospital. that's confusing for me. any ideas as to why? have you heard of Z being used for this purpose?
