hey there - i am right there with you. i am going from 60mg OC/day down to 40mg/day starting now... I have done this before, and it did suck. i started back on the meds after the last w/d because of the physical pain. But, i have become emotionally numb and my personality has dulled. Being really concerned about this, i am going to try this again. i would love any support/advice/mutual chats while you are going thru the same process. write me! katie
Im also a firm believer in Suboxone. I was taking 80mg of Oxy at least 5 and up to 9 times a day. The most I ever took was 2 80mg tabs at once. And I was using for a long time so of course I tried quitting many times and 1day is fine, 2nd day is terrible, 3rd day is terrible, by the 4th day Id always go back because I would give up the fight. I couldnt ever get any sleep so the combination with sleep deprivation as well as the withdrawls would alter my thinking and go into survival mode and do whatever it took to get back to normal which was start using again.
Im now on Suboxone and its an amazing drug. Im only on the 3rd day but this would normally be the worst day for me and I feel perfect. I can wake up and feel totally normal for the first time in years. I have slight mental cravings just due to my extended use and associating taking them at certain times throughout the day but NO physical cravings whatsoever. And the mental cravings are very very minimal compared to what they were before. This really is the breakthrough drug and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to quit. Dont put yourself through the misery of fighting it yourself. It took me 2 hours and 15 minutes to leave my house, go to the dr the first time, go to the pharmacy and come back home. I felt 100% better before I even left the dr office. If you have any questions about addiction or treatment, you can msg me and Ill be glad to help. I hope I can get someone else to make the change like I did.
