I've been on roxicodone for about a year I want to get off I am extremely addicted to them. I take about 6 30mg tabs a day sometimes more. I want to get off of them but I can't. I heard subutex and suboxone are the way to go b/c you won't get the withdraw effects. I've tried but I just can't go through the withdraws,I'd rather be on them. I also heard that if you take those along with my epilepsy medication(lamictal and xanax, the xanax I only take .5mg-1mg sometimes upto1.5mg/day the lamictal is strictly for my epileptic seizures) you could die... is this true. I need off now now now, big possibilty I'm pregnant. I have to do this the most discreat way as possible.
I really wouldn't suggest buprenorphine (suboxone, subutex) after only 1 year of abusing oxycodone unless you get a doctor who will do a 6 week suboxone detox on you. Buprenorphine is much much stronger than oxycodone and you don't want to get on a drug that is so much stronger than what you're abusing already unless like I said, you can get a doctor or clinic to treat you in a 6 week detox program.
The other option is rehab/detox with a minimum 28 day program. Stop this now before you really develop into a hardcore addict... Good luck to you... Dave
i feel the same way here, it is sad to say i do not have the strength to quit cold turkey i can not do it! i cry all nite long with my leg's. im tired i just cant sleep my legs hurt me sooo bad.. and i can not enjoy my day or be in good mood, i have to have it before i get out of bed. 30 mg oxycodone.i have been on them for prob. 2 yrs. now maybe 3. but i have been on opiates for 10 yrs straight now! back then it was (hydrocodone, percocet) the small stuff to me. i want to quit i have to. i cant live this way no longer, spend every dime i get! and tired of it. i allways wonder what it felt like not to get up in the mornin and need something to start my day. it has been so long i can not remember what it felt like to be normal ( i should say) i do remember i did things when i didnt take the drugs, like work in my flower garden, kept my house work done, now i do the least i can get by with.
i have a grand-daughter that is 9 months old, she is my world, and i know she dont deserve this, she deserves better. i jjust need the strength and alot more willpower! afraid of the withdraw i guess. i put myself in detox once it worked about a week. they didnt send me home with notin. and it is all around me everywhere you go! i brokeover and started them again (oxycodone) wish i wouldnt of but i did. suboxone clinics are outrageous here where i live, the cheapest is $700.00. i cant afford that, i have bought them off the street but they dont seem to work for me make me really tired and hungry i eat like crazy when i take one, and make me tired.
