i have been using hycrococone for years in i dont want to get sick from withdrawl i heard you can use moriphine sulfate to detox
Kevin, I hate to even mention this but it is the truth, sure the Morphine sulfate will stop the withdrawal from hydrocodone as it is stronger, but still opiate based, so, you will be technically in worse shape. I am not sure what your income or insurance is like but I am going to mention all the things you can do to get off hydrocodone that I know of. The most expensive at least initially because you will have to travel outside of the US, to Mexico or Canada, is Ibogaine. Please go to the member search locator here and look up L'il Stevie and then look up his profile and read it. It explains that route. The next 2 ways both involve you going briefly into full withdrawal, but they both work relatively fast after that initially agony. Methadone is the better route for someone who will always be in pain because they have a failed surgery, injury, or other condition that means they might never be truly pain free. I can almost hear people gasp and scream when I mention methadone, but properly used, it is I think the longest acting pain medicine available and safe if a person is truthful when they see the pain management doctor and they don't add meds that interact with it badly, like benzos. Then there is subutex and suboxone, if you simply want off opiates with the least amount of downtime, and no cravings, check these 2 meds out, I am on suboxone, probably should have been on subutex, and you can go to the suboxone homepage and look up doctors in your area licensed to prescribe it, there are all sort of fees and requirements by these doctors, so write down ALL the doctors and call ALL of them and ask for fees, office visit prices and frequencies, and any other requirements. And you can go to YouTube.com and look up SuboxDoc and Maple2609 for more info, Maple is young, but he gets it.Then there is cold turkey, and cold turkey with the Thomas recipe, please google the Thomas recipe opiate withdrawal and you will see a list of over the counter meds and supplements that ease opiate withdrawal, an intene irary of how Thomas did it, and the Journal of Thomas, the log of how he felt each day each day for an idea of what will come. There are some meds they use sometimes with suboxone and subutex called clonidine and methacarbamol. There are some rapid detoxes that may use something called twilight sleep and they basically put you under and keep you there in a light trance to a sleep to help get a person thru the withdrawal. I hate to give people news like this, but it can be helpful to know there are options. Good Luck, keeping you in my Prayers. Patti
Hi Kevin. Whoever told you that information was wrong, technically. Yes you will feel better, but how will you stop taking the morphine which is stronger than the meds you take now? The best way is to taper off slowly. Please google the "Thomas Recipe" for opiate withdrawals. Patti gave you some good advice. Please be careful with these medications.
Be safe and wishing you much success on quitting the pills.
