Will this be a difficult dosage for me to come off of? I'm quitting cold turkey as of now. I'm wondering about the withdrawals... can you give me an estimation of how... bad... they will be? Thank you!
Depends on your age, how long you've been taking it, if it's 30 at a time or a total of 30 (2 x 15, etc.). Worst case you will be miserable for a while, anywhere from 7-10 days to 2-3 weeks (more if you're taking other meds, drink, etc). Best method is gradually with the aid of a Dr. Hope this helps.
123alli, are you saying you take 30 mgs a day of oxycodone? are you taking 10s or 5s? thats really not a big amount at all and as you will be a bit uncomfortable, it wont be as bad as one taking 130 mgs like i do. what ever you do, dont take any more doses going higher and higher, thats how i got in this darn mess. now im struggling just to keep myself on a taper and actually my last resort is subs. how long were you taking them? keep asking for support here cause this is where you will find the best love and understanding. aloha, leanne
Its not too bad of a dose, however you need to contact your doctor. It is still a possibility that you may have seizures. I'm not trying to scare you, I just want you to know that cutting cold turkey on opiods, no matter the dose, can be dangerous. I suggest weening a bit. Even a 50% decrease one day, than off. I was on 45mgs of oxycodone and I weened off and it was very doable. Hope this helps.
I am in the same boat as you i take about 30-40mg per day and im in the process now of taking a week off work to begin detox stage, i did this before but i could not make it past day 3 due to the aches, cold sweats and well honestly not being able to get out of bed. It is a very hard process but i read about the Thomas recipe and im going to give that a try it works for a lot of people, just remember this is going to be very hard but WE CAN DO IT! im new to the site and need some questions answered myself but cant seem to get them through the approval process i wish u the very best of luck and i hope u with me the same.
