... some serious shoulder surgeries about 2 years ago. I gradually took my pain medicine more and more. Now I take 6 maybe 8, of 10/325 oxycodone a day. If I run out between prescriptions I call my doctor and get more. Its easy since i have other medical reasons to require more surgery. I'm positive I don't need the amount I'm taking every day. If I have to go 1 or 2 days without, I feel absolutely terrible. I want to stop but the fear of my family finding out horrifies me. I want to get an idea how bad it will be and how long it will last based on my usage. Will I be able to do it alone?Also, is it dangerous if I stop without telling anybody?
