Ugh, my condolences. I had a pain pill addiction (~10 years ago) that lasted a couple years but managed to kick it thanks to an amazing support structure. I'm not gonna blame my docs nobody forced me to do anything but I mean they didn't help. I have a horrendous pain condition (cluster headaches) which is commonly treated by straight o2 but my doc rolled his eyes when I brought this up and wrote me a script. 60 percs with refills. Cost like under $10 for each fill. The pain condition is so bad that pills cant phase it so I just ended up taking them for fun.

That's how I started, before CRISP system was out, I could send people to many doctors, and they could write 360 oxycodone 30s and 180 oxycontin 80s (before they were plastic) then it got regulated, and formulas changed, and people could only get 120 30s max, but their tolerance didn't help because how much they were prescribed. So they went to the streets for their opiates. But being real I didn't have pain, I started recreational and took advantage of people in pain because I had the doctors. But alot has changed. I'm just glad you didn't keep going. Very good job.

 

Have you tried nuerontin with it (non narcotic, non opiate) I've heard alot of miracles with 3x800mg a day, now it has been abused, but isn't like a narcotic, its the best non narcotic i know of for pain. If they give you enough.

No. Kind of long story but I basically stopped taking anything the docs recommend. Short version is when trying different meds out for the headaches (also epilepsy) I've had crazy side effects and the docs just kinda shrug the shoulders and throw different pills at me. I'm the nicest guy you'll ever meet but one of the meds had me picking fights. The docs aren't liable for anything so if I went to jail it'd be no skin off their back. I can't trust them. Also mildly annoys me they willy nilly throw pills around they never have to take. I do take depekote for the epilepsy and it seems to work ok, no real side effects. For the headaches around last year I tried micro dosing psylocibin (well known treatment amongst CH folks) and my god it changed my life. I was more or less paralyzed w/ headaches for months at a time, year after year since I was 16 with the headaches. 1 micro dosing treatment from that and I STILL haven't had an inkling of a headache. Truly changed my life. It's beyond winning the lottery I don't think I can describe what it's like to folks who haven't had cluster headaches. I suppose it's kinda like if you were paralyzed from the waist down then suddenly one day you can run like usain bolt.

I will say the one time I had a kinda cool side effect is when they had me on lyrica, it gave me lucid dreams every night.

I was on depicote (sp?) For seizures too, not epileptic though, I had to switch to kepra, and eventually didn't need meds anymore, I also seen doctors overdose my friend on kepra because it wasn't working, and he ended up going crazy a few days... I told them they weren't epileptic seizures, he had some kind of bacteria or something in his cerebral fluid and needed a spinal tap, he lived on a farm and everyone that went in contact with this barn had the same symptoms, so I figured it was environmental took them 3 months to send him to a neurologist and fix it. Was crazy.... 

I have 0 knowledge on headaches, I remember about 3 or 4 times waking up in the middle of the night with the worst headache pain, I would scream for like 5minutes, worst pain ive ever had, only lasted a few minutes and went back to bed, guess I grew out of those headaches.

 

Lyrica, they gave you that for fibermialga?(sp?) I know that's it's main reason but it's relatively new and it's worked for other reasons aswell. But side effect of one person I know, he would randomly pass out, any time of the day, didn't matter what he was doing, kind of weird. 

My dreaming drug is remron, 30mg at night but I only take it when I want to sleep, and it's not guaranteed to have a "lucid" dream but it's the only way they do happen these days. 

Glad you got them damn headaches fixed. And helped me learn stuff about them, I've never been able to give advice on headaches, very frustrating. Lol

I think for the epilepsy and headaches, I don't have fibromialga. That being said I went to see a mayo clinic doctor and he said I should've never taken that.

Regarding the headaches yeah just google 'cluster headaches psylocibin.' I think folks are looking into it for treating depression and other things as well.

Yeah cluster headaches will have you screaming like a psycho, they have a nickname suicide headaches for a reason. Lasts anywhere from 45min to 2hrs. Women say it's worse than childbirth. Kinda feels like an ice cream headache but much worse and always on one side of the head, right behind the eye. It's supposedly the worst pain known to man. I dunno about that but I mean if it's anywhere in that ranking then that should speak volumes.
