If you have been taking Stadol for pain relief, chances are you have experienced one or more side effects at some point. All prescription medications carry the risk of producing side effects and the bottle’s label and instructions will tell you what to look for. Stadol is a synthetic opioid that treats pain through a nasal spray or injection. It is the brand name for butorphanol tartrate. The spray, intravenous and intramuscular shots are used as pre-operative and pre-anesthetic medicine, and for pain relief during child labor. Stadol can cause side effects that impair reaction time and thinking. It’s advised that it be taken with caution when performing tasks such as driving, operating machinery or other actions that require alertness. The medication comes with instructions on use, abuse, risk for dependence, side effects, allergic reaction, overdose and possible withdrawal symptoms. It’s important to read this information so you know how to take it safely and what to expect.

Stadol Addiction Can Be Treated Safely and Quickly with Waismann Method
Regular use of Stadol can lead to the development of tolerance which can cause addiction and the need for medical detox. The Waismann Method of rapid detox offers safe, humane and confidential rapid detox for Stadol addiction. Our expertly-designed program can get you opiate free in a matter of days, putting safety and comfort first. The difficult withdrawal period is accelerated with our procedure, which takes place in a fully-accredited hospital in southern California. Patients sleep lightly for a short time while under deep sedation. Medication is administered at this point to cleanse the Stadol from patients’ opiate receptors. The withdrawal symptoms occur while patients are under and they awake without the awareness they went through it. We do not use opiate replacement therapy with Suboxone or methadone to treat opiate addiction so there is no need to worry about becoming addicted to another opiate and having to go through a second detox. Our Domus Retreat transitional living facility is also available, offering therapeutic and pampering services for those who wish to continue recovery.
