Neurontin Withdrawal

Withdrawal from Neurontin no longer needs to be grueling and suffering from the Neurontin withdrawal side effects can be a thing of the past. You are now on The Road Back web site, we are located in the United States, offer assistance for free and most importantly we show you what you can do right now for Neurontin withdrawal without the need to purchase a book.

The Road Back Program was started in 1999 and with well over 40,000 people now off addictive medication using this program, we are the largest out-patient drug withdrawal program in the world. Over the past decade the program has changed considerably with new research, breakthroughs and by listening to what people using the program have told us. All the clinical studies in the world by medical professionals are worthless if they do not lead to a person feeling better and doing better in life regarding Neurontin side effects and Neurontin withdrawal.

There was a time not so long ago the medical community felt Neurontin was not addictive. In 2012, the Surgeon General for the U.S. Army acknowledged Neurontin was not just addictive but he went further to remove Neurontin from the psychoactive drug list approved to give our troops. Well intentioned physicians may still believe Neurontin is not addictive but this does not make them a bad physician, it does mean they are still uninformed about Neurontin.

The point I wish to make with the above text is; clinical studies may be accurate or they may even be completely false, we at The Road Back as well as physician’s need to listen to each of you. If the goal is to assist people off Neurontin and have the person feel real well during the Neurontin tapering, we need to listen to you and not clinical studies only. This program was developed by taking Neurontin clinical studies and putting that information to use. Some of the information has worked quite well, while other information turned out to be worthless.

An example of this regarding Neurontin: If Neurontin is used for a prolonged period of time the Neurontin will deplete the B vitamin biotin from the body. A deficiency of biotin will cause numbness or tingling of the extremities, a reaction to loud noise or a reaction to bright light which could also include seizures. This is a biotin deficiency and not a medical problem. Put the right amount of biotin back in the body and these symptoms vanish. It is that simple.

This program is a culmination of 14-years of work, 14-years of failure and 14-years of success. None of us are exactly the same; the Neurontin side effects you may be experiencing may not be the same Neurontin side effects experienced by others, how you do while tapering the Neurontin may not be the same for others, you may be able to taper Neurontin a little faster than average or you may need to take this a little slower.

There are some basics that apply to all people though when it comes to being able to withdrawal from Neurontin. We take those basics, the list of side effects from the Neurontin drug approval process and from these, you have our program. Read through the Neurontin side effect list found below on this page, you may have quite a few of them or only a small quantity. Either way, the program is designed to guide you through the Neurontin withdrawal process.

You start out with what we call the Pre-Taper. The Pre-Taper are things you start doing before you ever reduce the Neurontin.

Two of the side effects that tend to be common with each person taking Neurontin are daytime anxiety and insomnia. Unless we can handle these two side effects, there really would not be a Neurontin withdrawal program. These two side effects are that debilitating when left out of control. Once the daytime anxiety and insomnia are under control, other Neurontin side effects you may be experiencing have a chance of simply going away on their own because they were anxiety and sleep related.

It would be hard to argue that constant anxiety on top of no sleep would not cause a person stress. We have gene in our cells called the JNK gene. This gene becomes too active when stress is chronic and this over activation of the JNK gene will lead to other body problems and some of those problems can be mentally related in time. So we also want to reduce the over activation of the JNK gene during the pre-taper and keep this gene in check throughout the taper process as well.

Natural supplements can be used to regulate the JNK gene, anxiety and insomnia. The Neurontin creates a metabolic disorder bringing some enzymes too high and when the flow of the metabolic system becomes stuck or flowing too profusely the body can’t handle it and a cascading effect takes place. You may become anxious due to the calcium firing erratically or by the adrenals out of balance or a host of proteins being too abundant or even too few.

You will start the Pre-Taper by taking a supplement called JNK Capsules. This supplement contains botanicals that have been proven to regulate the JNK gene, reduce stress, and put back in the cells what the benzodiazepines have stripped out and more. As stated earlier, long term use of a benzodiazepine will create an inadequate amount of the B vitamin biotin. Biotin has been included in the JNK Capsule formula to address this issue.

A metabolic disorder will take place with Neurontin usage in an area called nitric oxide and nitric oxide synthase. These are also known as NO/NOS. Too much NO will overwhelm NOS and then a substance called NMDA will go out of balance and this will lead to the misfiring of calcium. Here you have the rapid start of anxiety and the start of insomnia.

A supplement called Body Calm Daytime Relief should be used during the daytime to help with the Neurontin induced anxiety. The supplement blend of Body Calm Daytime Relief has the ingredients required to help regulate the NO/NOS cycle as well as to help keep the JNK gene from being over expressed. You would take 1 capsule every 2 to 4 hours throughout the day.

At bedtime, you will take one of 2 supplements. You can choose between Body Calm Supreme With Melatonin or Body Calm Supreme Melatonin Free. The one with melatonin is a little stronger but the melatonin free product still works rather well for those of you sensitive to melatonin. You would take 1 capsule 15-minutes before bedtime.

The Road Back does not sell these supplements. They are available at the U.S. manufacture Neuro Genetic Solutions. If you  are located in Australia or neighboring countries click here, if you are located in Europe or the U.K click here.
