I have been on vicodin for about 9 months to a year. Starting slowly with 5's I took for about 7 months. no more than 60 per month (20 day supply) 3 day. except i would run out at about day 16 after 4 months i figure the average was 3.5 a day. then my Dr raised my dose to 7.5 at 3 a day. a month ago I had surgery while out of state and the Dr prescribed 5's about 10 2x's i took those and my normal prescription. (1.1/2 months) I had been say I wanted off. so 4 days ago I too 1/2 a pill (7.5) in the afternoon about 1:30 1/2 about 8:30 did fine. The next day I decided I would wait as long as I could. I maid it till 7:30 and where i took 1/2 and went to bed. on the third day I took 1/4 at 11:30am and 1/4 at 5:30pm. today only 1/4 at 8:30 am will I still have extreme detox with drawl if I quit on Monday completely and bring it down again to 1/8 x2 tomorrow.
No you never were a heavy user to begin with you may feel a little uncomfortable but you got this beat!! great job I was taking 30 vicodin in a 12 hour period and kicked the habit cold turkey and it was hell!! but for some reason if you do experience any withdrawal just message me and I'll be here for you it helps having other people who know what your going through take care and Godbless
Alice, you are so lucky you weren't a heavy user. I started out like you and now I am taking about 100mg a day. My counselor in sending me to a 30 day detox program which I am kind of looking forward to cause I don't want to do this anymore!!! I am waiting on the dates and time off of work. I just hope I don't die beforehand!!
