Ok. So ive been addicted to painkillers for awhile now. I dont take much, I think. Ive been on about an 80 a day, Then I went to a methadone clinic. Off that since Nov '10. Then got back on like 60 Mgs of morphine. Quit that but now for the last 10 days ive been tearing open a fentanyl patch. 7.5 mgs and cutting them in fours and taking the gel. One patch a day. Had I known that these were that dangerous I never would have. But I wanna stop only ive been reading the horror stories of quitng fentanyl. After only 10 days will the w/D's be that bad.

kvn1175, i so know the hell of getting off of pain meds, i too am addicted and withdrawing, while on a slow taper. im on percocet 10/325, at the moment im taking 162.5 mgs per day, 32.5 mg per dose, tapered down to 130 mgs, was feeling great, them whoa is me, fd up and back up at 162.5. now im starting all over again and for some reason it seems as if its at its worse for wds this time. i always get stuck at 130 mgs. so once again. im trying this again, and a different taper, hopefully, ill find the rite one for me that will be a success. but im seriously leaning towards going the suboxene, or sub, or the one my dr does, butran i believe its called. well , i hope to gosh, that you find relief, your at the rite site. please keep us posted
