Can you ween yourself off of percocet by taking smaller doses?

You can if you have strong will power and I hate to volunteer someone else, but LaurieShay is good at helping people with opiate tapers, she has listed tapers on here before and she would be a good person to ask,

It would help to know the dosage, & how long you have been taking them. Also was this for recreational or a pain problem to begin with...

2 years for back pain and it has 48 hours since i have gone cold turkey
I tapered down from 6 to 8 tabs a day 325mg to 2 and then 1 and now none

Did you do this slowly or down one each day? Usually you need to stay on a dose for about 5 days then drop down 1 or 1/2 go another 5 days etc... If you do it too quickly, you may not be feeling so good tomorrow, day 3, but we will keep our fingers crossed & say a prayer for you. Usually the 3rd day hits me when ever I have to stop my meds for a test or something. I wish you the best, & let us know how tomorrow is, please...
