Pain and Withdrawal Management without Opioids

WITHDRAWAL OF OPIOIDS AND PAIN MANAGEMENT WITHOUT OPIOIDS

These Items were personally-used by Dr Forest Tennant and adapted from his writings, without restriction to the general public.

Special Note:  We are pleased to share information from Dr. Forest Tennant, grandfather of PracticalPainManagement.com, teacher of intractable pain and arachnoiditis management. Read more about Dr. Tennant here. Visit Dr. Tennant’s Arachnoiditis Hope site and review his original article here.

Arachnoiditis is a complication of epidural steroid injections (ESI) wherein the normal layer of arachnoid tissue is chronically inflamed and painful. Read our review article about epidural steroid injections here. There is no cure and many patients have been driven to suicide, most recently Jen on Twitter.

It is because of Jen that we post this for wide dissemination and the spread of hope to those with intractable pain. Share with your doctors, neighbors and patients with pain, especially pain that lasts 24 hours:

 

  1. HOMEOPATHIC REMEDIES

TAURINE                                                         2000 MG EVERY 4-6 HRS

TRYPTOPHAN                                                500 – 1000 MG EVERY 4-6 HRS

 

TAKE ANY 2 OF THESE:

 

BOSWELLIA                                                    

CBD OIL/EXTRACTS                                        

CURCUMIN/TUMERIC                                   

GLUTAMINE/GABA                                       

KRATOM   

PALMITOLYLETHANOLAMIDE (PEA)              

SERRAPEPTASE

WHITE WILLOW BARK                                   

 

2. SLEEP

MELATONIN 10 – 20 MG WITH BENADRYL 25 MG

 

3. PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS FOR PAIN (NON-OPIOIDS)
