prior to that i began loritab for relief its been 5 years and i still take 3 a day. this is both debilitating and finacialy breaking me. small town ,i dont want anyone to know but i want off so badly. i want freedom. i dont want to plan my life around these mfs anymore help. i do work for my self but time off is un paid but time on pills is also unpaid help. i have no help and want privacy
well 3 a day that is not addiction to me.i use to take 25-30 a day.so u can see the difference,if you are wanting to get off of them you can ween down like this. take youre 3 a day one day and next take two and next 3 .do that for awhile until you feel comfortable taking two a day. and then do the same thing.take two one day take one one day well you get the idea.unfortunately i dont think your addiction is enough to warrent suboxone,that is what i take and it works great.but now dont let me stop u if you yourself think its bad than you should check into the suboxone,here is the sight where you can find a doc in your area that can prescribe it turntohelp.com..if you do this however i would tell the doc you at least have a 10 a day habit..good luck
I understand you wanting off the meds but you also said you have a special child, I am going to stick my neck out a little and assume this child has some special needs? You need to be clear headed to care for your child so I can see and understand why you want off. 3 pills a day for pain is not too bad though, but if you want off you will have to do it slowly because even though it is only three a day you have done it for awhile now, I would suggest dropping one pill every four days to allow your body to adjust to not having it. It doesn't sound like your addicted but our bodies can get used to any drug in any amount that has been taken for a long time like this so go slowly. You may also want to try another pill for depression that will take over the two so that you only have one to worry about it would be cheaper for you too.
I have been on Paxil 40mg for a long time and it has worked wonders for me, I am no longer suicidal like I was for years with many attempts, until I got on the Paxil, it does come in generic form so that too will save you some money and maybe you won't be so stressed out financially. Your neighbors don't have to know anything about this I understand your concern there, people can be nosey which makes matters that much more difficult to handle. Just concentrate on your child and you may want to try the Paxil and also the stepdown of the pain meds. I wish you the best of luck my dear and I will be praying for you if you don't mind, it sounds like you could use it. Bless your heart for being concerned about your child every child is special no matter what the issue. Go and enjoy your child and try to relax a little if you can and I will be thinking of you.
You've gotten some great advice already. The only thing I can add is ask your doctor for samples. Anti-depressants are given to doctors by the bucket load. Find a good one that works for you. Your doctor will understand about the finances. He should be more than willing to give you these meds for free. As far as the Lortab, ween off it slowly, you should be fine. You're doing the right thing by your child who obviously needs you. I wish you well and good luck to you!
