when does it get better! have not slept and am shaking with chills and heart rate is up!
It WILL GET BETTER. Just try Hot showers help a lot. Keep drinking water, room temp is best, walk around the house , do laps, try to keep ur strength up. The more you move the better it will be . I felt like a 5 yrs child, then I tried to walk, but I kept doing it , also I carried a Vomit bucket around with me , cause it was 24/7, Now. Just in the very early am. You can do this, you are. Very much stronger than any dope is , if I can do it so can you! Please keep the faith ! I know you can do it!
It just sucks, period. There's a bunch of recommendations out there, I'm looking for them and some support too ...
I just joined and I'm looking to quit taking oxycontin (5+years, high doses). Is there a thread for that or should I start a new one? I am looking for advice ...
Feel your pain. Its one of the worst things to go through so worth it though! hang in there!!!
Depends on the usage etc. usually time frame is 1-3 worst... after that it will still linger but nothing like what you went through... Meantime see if u can get this
Tylenol 1000 mg
Motrin 800 mg
Hylands leg cramps i take 2-3
Hot bath episom salt helps reduce aches and promote sleep
Unisom not benadryl- doxylsuccinate knocks me out when im Wd
Try lavendar or yogi bedtime tea.
Powerade or gatorade
If you have a md talk to thm abou your anxiety see if they will put you on a benzo.
Benzo + Unisom + hot bath= sleep for me!
I am on day 3, took Norco 10/325 for almost 6 years but the worst of it has been these past 2 years, I've spent all my money, relationships through the drain and I'm only 27 years old. I have a 7 year old and it's now affecting him financially. This is my first real attempt to stop for my self.. I always read these forums but was to embarrassed to post. Ive lost great jobs and opportunities from these pills. I'm feeling OK today not horrible but sneezing, pooping, rls, and no energy. :/ I have a slight headache but not as bad. Typically I withdrawal only when I run out I usually feel like I'm dying but this time doing it for myself has have me hope. I wanna buy cool stuff again, go out to eat fancy again, lol go on trips! I did this all before.
I wanna save money again! The only thing that has helped me is marijuana it's legal here I'm los Angeles it helps with my anxiety and a bit of pain but when it wears off I feel it man so it's hard but it helps. My boyfriend had me walking all day on day 2. He doesn't know so I had to put on a happy face but I was dying I got home and knocked out but I feel ok. Please share your stories I'm in need of hope.
Hey carapin I know what you are going threw. I'm on day 7 today. I got my first good night sleep last night. I feel way better today. This is my 3rd time stopping. I started going to NA meeting on Monday and it has helped me to know I can get past this and stay clean. It will get better. Keep telling yourself minute by minute hour by hour day by day. I know it's hard but go out and walk it helps get your body restarted. Eat good avoid bad food. I started taking b12 and one a day heath vitamin. Force yourself to eat. A Banana and yogurt. Also Imodium A.D. Helps with the bathroom. I'm off of The Imodium now for 3 days and no problems with the bathroom. And zzzquill to help sleep. Keep your head up and it will get better don't go backwards look forward to moving on and not letting pills control your life. I know it's easier said than done I know it all too well but believe me it will get better keep me posted on how you're doing.
I am on day 2 of a 5 year perk habit of 10-25 per day I feel alot better already I have tons of depression and anxiety haven't slept to much but have passed the diarrhea hopefully this is the best and hardest decision I have made in my life and all I can say is stay strong most posts say the physical withdrawal should start to get much better after day 4 time will tell good luck to you and God bless
On day 4 and no real difference from day 3 yet but it's early. No more leg jumps, did get 3 hours sleep last night, 12:30 to 3:30. Diareaha is about over, that's good. Been getting chill bumps all morning though. You just got to tough it out, I truly feel your pain, day three will be the turning point . Hang in there friend!
I've been on the following:
15-20mg/day of Percocet for 2 weeks, before that I was on 25mg/day of Hydro for 3 weeks.
I'm on day 3 and am starting to feel anxious/depressed and slept pretty bad last night. I know it was pretty light use compared to others. Do you know how long my symptoms will last?
I’m currently on day 7 of my withdrawal hell lol been taking roxy 30’s for 4 years. And I’m ready to free myself.
physically starting to feel better... but scared of what’s to come mentally. I have a beautiful wife and son who love me and care about me so I need to do this. I know this post is a little old but wanted to know how everyone is doing ? Any advice going forward would be appreciated :)
