I jumped from almost the same dose as you did and wd's peaked on day 10. Days 2 - 9, I was getting about 20 minutes of sleep per night. Night 9, I got zero sleep and hallucinated, too. I saw this brilliant orangish, reddish color/shape emerge from the wall. It was almost all the way out of the wall when I remember thinking, "hey, this is like being on LSD", but I wasn't on LSD. I shook my head, got up and walked around and thank goodness that was my only hallucination.

Raudy is right, Clonidine will help you a lot. I took it on day 30 of my wd and it made a big difference. Clonidine (not to be confused with Klonopin) is a blood pressure medication that's prescribed off label for opiate wd. It calms the Sympathetic Nervous System AND has a sedative effect, as in sleep!!! Go see your doctor, tell him you're getting off opiates for good and ask him for Clonidine. I wish I would have went before day 30 of my wd's!!

I agree with TD. Sleeping pills can make it worse when you're so tired but can't sleep. I tried it and it didn't help anything. It made me frustrated because it made me SO TIRED & my legs still were restless! That's the real problem. Also about the hot baths, GOD SEND. Seriously don't underestimate them!

I've also heard many people suggest Clonodine for WDs. It helps ease the RLS & anxiety since it levels your blood pressure. Keep us updated! You're so close.
