The new tablets you received, with the 605 marking contain 1mg of Alprazolam, in a regular release formulation, so they are the same as the ones you were taking with the S902 marking. The only difference is that they have been manufactured by a different company.

No it will not. Xanax is a benzo not an opiate. Withdrawal from heroin or oxycodone is NOT as bad from with withdrawal off benzos, or xanax. Xanax withdrawal can actually KILL you by putting you into a seizure. DO NOT ABUSE xanax.

I was an opiate addict for 10+ years tried a methadone clinic for 5 years (DONT DO THIS....EVER) although it did help me assimilate back into a normal society... and got me used taking something only once a day.. YES xanax will reduce your withdrawal pain....mostly by giving your body some relaxation and hopefully sleep. BUT do not continue using the xanax and taper off asap! MY REAL SUGGESTION AND WHAT SAVED MY LIFE is Subutex ... I don't even THINK about opiates at all anymore could care less. I have a life, job, and believe me know one would even believe me if I told them about my past

May help you sleep but trading one for the other isn't the solution, best way to quit opiates is cold turkey. I took pain pills for 5 years and went to a methadone clinic for another 3 years, it was by far one of the worst things a person can experience but afterwards the last thing in the world your going to want to do is put yourself threw it again

Yes this is coming from professional experience. Most of the withdrawls of opiates is the anxiety of withdrawal and it does take this away. you still may experience some withdrawal symptom but they actually use ativan and xanax and valium for detox from alcohol and opiates. if your going the legal route i would do the suboxone 5 day detox and try to get on a tranxene which is just a really long acting benzo, most detox docs are using tranzene instead of xanax or ativan bc it is really hard to abuse and really does help with the worst of the withdrawl sympotms you still may feel nauseous but for me it worked wonders.

They may ease the difficulty with the withdrwals but you then may become addicted to the xanax. If you have issues with axiety try ativan if you are needing to get off any type od opioid I would suggest suboxone. Ive had expiierence with both... Good luck to you and with any meds be careful...

Xanax does help with anxiety and my help with anxiety caused from withdrawal BUT I've been prescribed Xanax since I was 19 from my family doctor. It has helped my anxiety a lot but the day I stopped taking it I had a seizure and although after a few days I was back to normal. Now I've been taking it for six years and I've had four seizures and can not think of even living without it. I know what your thinking...I'm addicted. I know I am but fear the consequences of stopping the use of this drug. I do not recommend this to help with opioid withdrawal. There is a high possibility you could just become addicted to an even more dangerous drug.

They may not be a pain pill or like one but it does help it calms your nerves to the point that you wont think about it so much or feel so bad trust me ive used for 10 yrs....but the best thing is suboxone but you must complete the program or you will just have switched addictions.

I'm currently detoxing from methadone which is a strong opiate and is also a pretty strong pain killer and xanax does help with the withdrawals symptoms but it will not take them completely away, xanax just makes the withdrawal from pain pills or opiates more tolerable since it relieves most of the anxiety and helps you sleep, xanax and cannabis works best for me

Not really buddy the only thing that's goin to help is. Try to sleep a lot with some kind of sleep medication. When I did did seroquel I it's a sleep medication it helps a lot. You'll have nights where you'll be sleeping in the bathroom cause you'll puking so much. The worst of it will last about two weeks, but you won't feel or be able to eat right for a couple to three months. Yea man it's no joke but benzos Will help with the restlessness. N last all I can say is good luck my friend n after Thu go through all that. You'll have days that you'll think about days f*** it , when you have those days just think back to the weeks n months of hell you went through. You can do it just do day by day n sometimes minute by minute! Kevin
