But it might be worth it if it can help get me through this God-awful withdrawal. I just really wanna kick this stuff...
Is it something you are purchasing without a doctor helping you get through the withdrawal? I have been there three times so far ... first time was after a bad foot surgery that the doc gave me two different levels of Oxycontin to take for the pain ... and gave me unlimited scrips for it for 6 months until I had no more reason to take it and had to stop cold turkey. I ended up in the ER three times and my primary twice until a nurse, who is also a neighbor that works at our local prison, realized that it was withdrawal and at that point I went 3 days straight with NO sleep ... in fact, when I was sitting in the pharmacy waiting for my scrips for my weandown protocol I fell asleep and I didn't even know it ... don't even remember coming home from the pharmacy.
My doc gave me methadone, serax (for sleep, since withdrawal makes you not sleep), and catapress patches to help with the racing blood pressure issues ...
Best of luck to you ... it is NO fun to go through this ... we are here for you and call your doctor or go to the ER ... don't try and do this on your own ... there are meds to help you!! :)
