You may be able to get a prescription from you doctor but you would need to speak with a cliniician since one medication may not be right for you which is right for another person
Yes there is, there are a lot of prescriptions that can do this, and you need to find the right doctor with the right plan for you!
Yes, however, be aware of cross addiction - becoming addicted to those medications that ease withdrawal symptoms. These medications are more safely administered through inpatient detox/rehab. Discuss the options with your doctor and communicate your intentions clearly.
The first step is to talk to your physician and explain how you have been feeling, then the doctor will help guid you to the right direction that best suits you
Yes there are. Your doctor or specialist can make sure it is the correct one for what you need. :) :)
Yes, of course. If you are suffering from drug withdrawal symptoms, depending on the severity, you should be under the supervision of a doctor. There are drugs that ease the process but in some cases it would be counter productive to treat drug withdrawal with different drugs.
Yes, there are some prescription drugs to help ease the pain which withdrawals bring with them. One should consult their doctor to see which medicines are right for them.
The person who can best answer this question is a medical doctor or pharmacist. I believe there are drugs such as methadone and suboxone but they may only be used for heroine addiction. If you are suffering from extreme withdrawal symptoms please seek out medical attention.
If you are experiencing withdrawl symptoms it is not wise to look to other medications as there could be potential withdrawl symptoms with these as well. If you are looking for a good way to help with these symptoms, try different vitamins or supplements such as Vit- C, Vit - B12/B6, and melatonin for sleep if you are having trouble with that. Grocery stores usually have a good supply of different vitamins and supplements.
Yeah there are pre scripted drugs but you would need to inform the doctors what kind of symptoms you are having and check for what those symptoms might lead to
As always when talking about prescription drugs, I would recommend consulting your doctor. They deal with these sort of things and not only would provide you options with prescriptions, but they'd also be equipped with many other resources to accompany your needs. Especially since many health-related factors come into play when dealing with prescription, no one would be more qualified to answer your question than them. :)
Some of them can be to help ease the symptoms of withdrawal, it depends what the prescription is for. If you have any specific question consult your doctor about new medication, and types that can help with withdrawal.
they do use methodone for heroine withdrawal and different prescriptions for cigarette use. it could be helpful to speak with your doctor.
