Ruth here. I am so proud of you (again) girl. I can't beleive how well you're doing. Well I can beleive it. What you have done is truly amazing. I think I told you, I was a chronic alcoholic and have been sober for a little over 5 years now. And it feels so incredible when you defeat it. I told you in another email, but if I was there, I would give you a big Hawaii hug for what you have accomplished. Tis no easy task. Be proud of yourself girl. Have a wonderful day honey. Ruth
Laurieshay, hi I did not know any other way to contact you, i am new to this, but I need some help with tapering off my norco dependancy. I have been taking norco for 1and a half 3x a day for a cervical disc disease . I spoke to my doctor to see if we could come wit a taper plan he told me to start by taking 1 And a half, dropping my dose by a half so I tired and still had very bad withdrawal , I am a mother to a 4 year old little girl, so need to have the fewest withdrawl as possible, right now I have a new fill so I still have 90 pill could you pls pls help come with a good plan one where I can still get up and attend my baby, I'm determined and ready to get off of these pills. Thank you hope to hear from you soon
You're doing good. I lost track of how many pills a day you take now? And you're still taking the 10 mg pills, right? Have you gotten used to keeping a constant steady level of Oxy in your system?
At some point, instead of reducing 1 pill, and that meaning eliminating 1 dose a day, I want you to do it differently. Instead of simply taking away 1 pill, you will take away 1/2 a pill off 2 doses in the day. It will still be a 10 mg drop, but you will drop 5 mg off 2 separate doses, and you won’t feel it as bad. But I guess we have to wait until you're down to 8 doses a day. Did this make sense? I'm not sure if I'm making sense right now.
And if you need to cut down every 5 or 7 days you can do that, and I'll tell you why. I want you to be doing this with Hydrocodone. It really is easier on Hydro than Oxy. Your doc said the next time he's switching you to hydro right? So you can slow up a little until you get to Hydro. I just had to make sure you were doing this. And you are.
