Life back24. Sorry to hear what you are going thur. I don't want to see you go cold turkey. Is there any way you can talk to you doc and let him help you with a taper. There is no shame in what has happened. I'm on xanax, I only take what Im sppose to or alittle less. It wouldn't be hard for me to take more but so far I have not. So your not taking more than suppose you are just scared of getting hooked, am I right?? I would say if you need them and the doc knows you need them or he would not have given them to you then take them. If you are going to be in pain if you stop then what are you going to do? I admire you for wanting off, but if you need them then you don't need to stop. Please talk to your doc about your concerns. Good lucks and prayers. Von-1
I agree with what Von suggested to you. Life back24, can't add really to much because I know very little about the pain killing medication, drugs. (psychiatric drugs are more my world). Saw your question, and well, along with Von wishing you nothing but good things, to pass your way, a prayer, and strength to accompany it. very best to you life back, try and feel positive and not to worry.
