Has anyone ever done this or heard of this? He prescribed me 2pills every 2 hrs for up to 5 days & told me to go cold turkey? I'm reading about this drug here on website but everyone else talks about it being used for alcoholism. He did tell me it was used for this but is it as effective with opiate detox I wonder?
Doc gave me librium for getting off norco?

I only have 2 Norcos left, so haven't started taking the librium yet. He said he doesn't have a license to prescribe the more common wd drugs for my type of addiction. Wondering if I should get a second opinion, because everything else I've read says you shouldn't go cold turkey, especially at the level I was taking.. So confused???
On this site, search the drug, then read under user reviews... others have used it for the same reasons as you. If it were me I'd try it, don't think it could hurt & hopefully will help you out.
Yeah I did but didn't see any users for this reason I'll keep looking though, just got it from pharmacy couple hrs ago. So now I'm just going to hunker down and go with it I think :)
I would give the librium a try. This was one of the first anxiety drugs. I took it in 1965 I'm old as dirt :) You might look into getting a scrip for clonidine it keeps your bld pressure down while withdrawing, and its recomended for opiate wd's Good luck: saucerman
A second opinion is always a good idea, however, I'm sure this Dr. knows what he's doing. Best to get started based on your statement of only having 2 left, you really do not have time to mess with another opinion, unless you can get right in with someone. My vote is to go ahead with this Dr.'s plan.
Hi I was just curious. Did u get off the norcos? I hope you did. I'm having the same problem. I actually had 10 days and had it whipped but on the 11th day my appendix bursted ouch. 3 wks in the hospital of course I was getting morphine and dillata shots now I am doing 10 norcos a day through a pain management doctor.Did the librium work? I dread doing withdrawls again its wearing me out.
