nausea / constipation....NOT!  :-) » ed_uk

Ed, thanks again for your comments.

Taking a smaller dose of bupe (just 0.1mg) has helped a lot. My target dose is uncertain. Therapeutic results are reported for nonabusers from 0.2mg to 6mg. The biggest study's average was 1.8mg.

> As far as I know, cyclizine (Marezine) is available without a precription in the US

Tomorrow I'm going to pick up some Marezine, which I had not realized was OTC. Even though things are going well now nausea-wise, as I increase the dose over the next week or two, that could change.

> check that cyclizine would be safe for you to take

The warning sheet looks okay.

(Also going to pick up some ginger as Marsha suggested... mostly because it sounds yummy!)

> Buprenorphine is (apparantly) much less constipating than most opioids

Elizabeth had enduring problems with it that way, so I guess that worried me. But on the reduced dose (circa 0.1 mg), so far no problem. In fact I think I'll hold off on buying the Reglan unless I actually develop constipation.

> another option

I'm shocked. Bad experience with Haldol, so I think I'll pass, LOL.

>> I may need some advice on cutting & measuring tiny crumbs...

I guess if I get the dose up to about 1.0 mg soon, that won't be a problem, but anything less will be pretty much guessing and inconsistent. I need a teeny tiny scoop.

Recreational drug users must know something about this. Maybe I'll post a question on the Substances board.
