I wrote my first post last week , did something wrong cus it didn't go through. So now I have to start from the beginning again. I am addicted to Norco 10/325. I take 10-15 pills a day, sometimes more, sometimes less for about 5 years. Last month I went to see a Suboxone Dr. I was 2 days into withdrawals. We only talked for 10 minutes cus I was late for my appointment. He did not give me the suboxone. He told me to make another appointment and rushed me out the door. Could not get in for 2 weeks so I refilled my Norco then went to a NA meeting. First meeting in 30 years. Yesterday I went back to the Sub Dr and he still would not give me the script. He wants me to be inpatient in the Hosp for detox. I don't want to go that route at this time so I'm going to try it my way once again. I have 100 Norco and am going to taper myself. This has never worked before but this time I'm running out of options and need to be more serious. Or I can find another Suboxone Dr but I'm afraid of it now. I am glad I found this support group. I think you all are awesome. I went to another NA meeting last night but don't really want to go. I also have a therapist I see weekly.
I'm going to suggest what I know works. Get a pill dispenser from the store and put the exact number of pills alotted for that particular day according to your taper. Since you are taking 10-15 per day, it is going to be hard to taper with only 100 pills and not experience some withdrawals. You'll need to put drop your dosage every three to five days. You'll need to start with as few as pills as possible for the first few days and work down from there.
I really recommend you stick with the NA meetings. 90 meetings in 90 days as the saying goes. I know that you don't necessarily want to go, but the program works if you work it. 90 days will give you a good foundation from which to stay clean.
Here to support you all the way. It is possible so hang in there and remember HOW is works is through H onesty, O pendmindedness, and W illingness. Use your therapist as much as possible and don't give up.
