Try googling the Thomas recipe opiate withdrawal to check out that system for going cold turkey. I know you said to wean, but, the otc meds and supplements may help you with any withdrawal symptoms you may have as you wean. Weaning is very hard, and I wish you great success, but most people can't really do it. Please check out suboxone/subutex as another route to get off percocet. You will have to be in withdrawal with NO PERCS in your system for 24 hours before you start the suboxone program, but, it will keep you out of withdrawal after you start the program and you will be able to function and live a normal life while on it. You can go to the suboxone website to find the doctors in your area who are licensed to write a presciption for it and I urge you to call all of them as there is a fee to get on it and it varies from doctor to doctor.
Patti is giving you great advice. The only thing I could add is, rather than calling around to find a sub doctor, you can call the suboxone helpline directly. They can give you a list of doctors in your area who are trained and licensed for this particular medication/treatment. Here are a few web sites too.
HOTLINE (has the info on drs.)
Mon. through Fri. 9am to 7:30pm EST
Good luck to you.
