Athena - Dalmane Withdrawal Success Stories

I pretty much went into or on to my meds with my eyes open. I knew that any relative of Valium was addictive. At the time I didn’t care. I wanted to sleep. That is why the doctor prescribed Dalmane for me. I had no idea it had so many other uses but I should have figured: it pretty much calmed me down, probably got me through menopause without too much fuss, and of course it got me through the middle of the night, a time that still plagues me.

Fast forward 12 or 13 years--it was time to try and stop. I was coming back to the US after living abroad for over a decade. I thought that it might be difficult to continue getting the drug and decided to come off of it. I cut the pill in half—BIG MISTAKE! Next thing I know I have rampant mouth sores and I can’t figure out why. Sound familiar? When I surfed the internet to find out what could be causing it, lo and behold, I found Point of Return (POR).  Now I treasure any little mouth sore because it reminds me of where I’d be if not for POR,  if not for Alesandra, Andrea, Terry and my fabulous POR family, all of whom are wise in so many ways. I’m proud to be a part of this family. When I received my certificate of completion I was prouder than when I received my college degree. That was so much easier!

I have been drug free for a little over 6 months now and most of the symptoms I dealt with during my taper are gone. I am still eating clean and still using the nutraceuticals, which are integral to the process. I have learned patience, I have learned how to not panic if I can’t fall back asleep, and I’m constantly learning new things about myself all the time. I’m not 100% yet, but I’m so much closer to that new woman.

Alesandra - I don't even know where to begin. I do know that I would not be where I am today if it had not been for POINT OF RETURN. I was at my lowest, not knowing what to do, and about to lose everything I had because of the medication I was on. I was taking 11 pills a day, having seizures, blacking out, in and out of mental institutes and emergency rooms. "What was wrong with me? " That seemed to be a million dollar question. Test after test, bronchitis, ear infections, diarrhea, vomiting memory loss, insomnia and depression plagued me. My husband and family were sick with worry and completely frustrated with me and I did not know where to turn. The doctors just kept prescribing me more meds, and I was sick with worry about my health. I woke up one morning, covered in blood, because I had passed out in the shower and did not remember a thing. I got on the computer, as a last resort, and found the POINT OF RETURN website. I just have two words to say about it "Thank God!" I started the program, and with MUCH support from the staff, Terry and Alesandra and any other poor soul that answered the phone, I made it! I have laughed and enjoyed life more in the past three months, than I have in the past 7 years. I have my life and family back. I have been working at a job now for 5 months, and I love it! I am the receptionist and answer more than 1,000 calls a day. It seems like a dream some days to feel so good, but I will never take life and people granted again. Life is good! Good luck on your path back to happiness!

Janet M., (TEXAS) Dalmane Withdrawal Success Story

Karole - Dalmane Withdrawal Success Stories

 There is always a story behind taking prescription drugs. I have a story. 

As I look back on my life I have been fortunate in many ways, at least as to living my dreams.  I had good parents who provided me with many opportunities in life. I was the outstanding girl athlete in my graduating class... and that's all I wanted to be. I went to college and majored in physical education along with playing basketball. I met a wonderful guy to marry and we've been together for 50+ years. I had a secret dream of wanting 12 children and was blessed with 11. Added 7 others who came to live with us through the years.

I returned to college when my youngest was in kindergarten. I majored in History, Psychology and Sociology. I did my 5th year to attain my teaching credential and found a job immediately. I continued on to receive a Masters Degree in Counseling.

Up to this time I was on no medications and had had just a couple of surgeries in my entire life. One of those surgeries was when I was 17 years old and had torn the cartilage in my knee, from flying off a toboggan. This left my knee in a locked position making this surgery a necessity. That would become a problem later in life.

In my third year of teaching and coaching I began to experience knee pain. This led to arthroscopic surgeries on both knees with poor results. I was unable to regain motion. My physical therapist spent many hours trying to figure out why I wasn't progressing. After several surgeries I was sent to a Doctor in Los Angeles who co-invented the artificial knee. I had exploratory surgery to check for cancer. I was sent to Scripps Green Hospital for more surgery and put in an intensive rehab program there. Met my first psychiatrist there and was told "it's all in your head". The physical therapist who worked with me told me to ignore him! During this time I was in a new job that required 12 to 14 hours a day.  I did lots of exercises to try and get my knees working. What happened then was I lost lots of weight. That was a good thing that turned into a huge problem. Without realizing what I was doing this turned into anorexia. For two years I lost weight. When I got down to 100 pounds my world fell apart completely. I had kidney failure that put me in the hospital one night. I went straight from there into a program for eating disorders which required me to take a year's leave of absence.

I spent time in many eating disorder programs while enduring more knee surgeries. When the doctors couldn't solve the knee issues it was decided to try knee replacements. Now that I have learned new things about my health I know that inflammation was the reason I couldn't regain motion in my knees and those knee replacements, that never worked, were totally unnecessary.

It was during this time period that I had sleep issues for the first time in my life. My family doctor fixed that for me by prescribing 30 Mg of Dalmane.

Knee replacements did not solve my problems. I did recover from anorexia but was put on a multitude of antidepressants while being given many strong painkillers. 6 years after my knee replacements I developed a staph infection in my right knee. It had to be removed and due to other complications I went without a knee for 9 months.

After surviving 30 knee surgeries, 4 shoulder surgeries, 2 wrist surgeries, c-spine surgery, a double fractured pelvis and several other surgeries, not listed here, along with being put on many strong pain meds for long periods of time, I just wanted to live again!

I saw no need for a sleeping pill as the reason I couldn't sleep had been resolved many years before.  When I told the doctor I wanted off the sleeping pill he was no help and just suggested going to a different sleeping pill. I stopped taking it all on my own, not realizing I had put myself into a cold-turkey situation. I was very sick and my doctor spent over 6 months sending me to every specialist there was! I was certain I was dying and did end up in the hospital where they found I had an infected gall bladder which was then removed. Later my knee doctor told me I should have died as the infection should have traveled down to my artificial knee. Following the surgery I experimented and realized my "dying" problem was a result of not taking the sleeping pill and I reinstated at 15 MG.

I was always searching for a way off this medicine! Then, in April, while recovering from a shoulder surgery in February of 2015, I found POR, Point of Return. I didn't call I just sent an email to buy the program and was very excited! Andrea helped me get started and, although I have had some tough times during the process and continue to heal to this day, I've never looked back!

My life has been changed for the better by leaps and bounds. God brought me to this program and these amazing and knowledgeable people. I am ever indebted to Alesandra, Andrea and Terry for their unending guidance as I journeyed to freedom from both Dalmane and Tramadol. The supplements designed for the POR program are the absolute best! I am more than med-free, I live my life differently by eating clean and very healthy. I am the healthiest I have been in 25 years.  This is a process and requires dedication from the individual and trust in the team. If you want it, it's there! I have it and I love it!

THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!!! Freedom is sweet and POR has blessed my life beyond measure!
