For some history,
Been on morphine er by prescription and vicodin hp for 10 yrs. Do not want to be a slave to morphine. About 18 mos. ago I had been on 120mg a day.[morphine er, that is]. I decided to cut myself back. I started taking 120mg every other day, for a few months. I then decided to ask the dr. to lower my dose to 60mg. Took 60 a day for a few monthes. I then cut myself to 60mg every other day.To make a long story short, a family member is seeking suboxone treatment for his vicodin addiction. He gave me a couple of 8mg subs.I was taking 6 vicodin hps a day, except morphine days, which I only take 2-3.So I had taken 1/8 of an 8mg sub on Tuesday.I have yet to take another morphine er. It is Saturday morning. My legs are so restless and hard to sleep more than 4-6 hrs a night. I've taken 5 Vicodins since Tuesday.I am determined to make this work, with the help of God and as little suboxone as possible.No other subs since Tues. I feel ok, other than my restlessness and occasional diahriah. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
Need help with getting off of morphine er?

Please google The Thomas Recipe for a list of over the counter and RX meds you may need while in withdrawal. You might want to google Post Acute Withdrawal Syndrome (opiates) to learn why we feel so bad during withdrawal, emotionally anyway.
Get some Immodium, and try Benadryl for sleep. If you are sleeping over a few hours a night, consider yourself lucky.
You might want to seek out a Suboxone doc in your area.
Keep us posted on your progress, we care.
