Might not quite be done yet. It will take a week to 10 days to be through the worst and then it will get better. So hang in there, it will get better. You can google the Thomas recipe for opiate withdrawals. It is a list of mostly over the counter medicines to help with withdrawals. Congratulations on getting off the opiates!!

if the rule of thumb is No more than 4000mg of acetaminophen per 24 hours then (and this is a lot) and I am not suggesting you or others do it but Norco say if you were on 10/325 the math would indicate 325x12tablets=3900 of acetaminophen of course the more you take it puts your liver in danger, Laurie is right, I think that is great that you have worked you are nearly over the worst, as she suggested the Thomas recipe at thia point in time should help you over the hump, as you'll read on it hot baths the water will ease your muscles down, the great thing about it is that this can be done as much as you need the baths and don't cause harm, as she said the other things reinforce what your body needs to get through and possibly reduce some of the strain and trauma. I also (along with Laurie applaud you) If you need someone to just listen or to help cheer you on please feel free to come to us and it's filled with compassionate caring people who want your life to be the best it can be! Please take care,
