Methadone or suboxone

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.

I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.

Opioid withdrawal is bad on day 3-6. But later on the intensity decreases. Methadone or suboxone are good step down medicines to reduce the withdrawal symptoms. But for that you need to conatact your local psychiatrist. Meanwhil you may over the counter painkillers like acetaminophen or combiflam and also take plenty of fluids. Try to bear with duration just believing that the life on the other side of this withdrwal is very beautiful.

Hope I am able to answer your concerns.

Brief Answer:
Painkillers may help you

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the follow up.
You may try some painkillers like acetaminophe or ibuprofen which may be available on OTC. Health care magic being a online forum it wont be possible to provide you a prescription without physically examining you. Further it may not be safe as well.
Hope you understand...

i had a c section 10 days ago. everything went smoothly. the doctor perscribed percaset for pain. i took half of what the bottle said because im not used to taking pain pills. i ran out yesterday and started having radiating "nerve like" pain from where they did the spinal tap. I called the doctor & they said it was normal & perscribed loratab & motrin. i feel like my heart is in my throat, kind of like its skipping beats. I have also been under an enormous amount of stress since i"ve gotten home from the hospital. Is the irregular heartbeat feeling coming from one or all of these changes? I have no chest pain at all
