G for getting off opiates? Eh... It helps. By no means a replacement therapy. I'd put it slightly above other comfort medz and way below more opiates.

The taste has always made its usefulness somewhat self limiting. Have you ever started puking while brushing your teeth during wd? Well, I can about start dry heaving just thinking about the taste of G during detox. You can try to mask the taste by putting it in some juice or something. After redosing many times, even juice doesn't mask the taste, and it makes me gag immediately.

G has, however, meant the difference between one semi-miserable hour of sleep and no sleep at all. Of course, you will wake up almost exactly an hour and fifteen minutes later in a pool of sweat. Still, better than no sleep, and with a couple more doses through the night, one can manage to get a few hours of sleep during some pretty miserable withdrawals.

It's helpful to have around, and makes things *a bit* easier. It is no replacement, though. It does help considerably once you are through the worst (first 3-5 days).  Nice to have something you can take a few times through the day and catch a little buzz. It is helpful, just not that helpful. Not even close to a magic bullet. I think it's best feature is being able to knock yourself out and get a bit of sleep, even if it isn't more than a couple hours a night. Far better than no sleep.

Thank you Catsfordrugs ... you are obviously speaking from experience and that's pretty much like I thought.

My friend  said that G was a godsend for dealing with all the nasty withdrawal symptoms but I remained sceptical.

Yeah, as with everything, it probably depends a lot on your perspective. It's always nice to have, and as I mentioned, I think the most helpful thing was that it actually allowed for some sleep during those first miserable days. BUT... They have always still remained miserable days (withdrawal), g or no g.

That said, I would always choose detox WITH g over detox without. Nice to have, but you certainly wouldn't take some and then forget that you were having wds a short time later.

It was definitely a "go-to" comfort med when it was more readily available. It's been awhile since that was the case. Hard to believe it could be purchased otc at vitamin stores as late as the early 90's IIRC.
