I have gone down from 40mg 3Xs a day. Some days I haven't been able to get through without more Opana (not ER)--usually 10 mg. when I have severe pain. I am really scared about asking the doctor for 20mg Opana ER and 5 mg Opana ER so I can make the next decrease. I can't believe how scared this dependency has made me. I need suggestions to make the detox better. I have SO much anxiety. Should I try to take a benzo. or is there anything else that would make this detox more bearable? And, how long does it take for my own endorphins to start helping me with pain once I am off the medicine? I am scared, and need support! Thanks so much!
