I have been taking these horrible pills for three years. I want to stop. I have 50 left,how can I use these so the withdrawal isn't so hellish?
of course subzero is right, but can you trust yourself to do it alone? Have a loved one control your pills for you. 50 pills left? Too early for me to do the division, but try to taper down over at least 6-7 days if not more. Tell your loved one, "Whatever I say, don't listen to me!" Good luck on kicking this unhealthy habit. You are doing the right thing. Someday soon, I will be in the same place you are right now. Good luck to you,
hi bmlaird74, My son is 24. He has been buying oxys from the street for about two years. When he came to tell me about his " problem" I suggested doing exeactly what subzero told you. The only problem is that it can be extremely difficult to go through even a moderate amount of discomfort when the exact med. you are trying to come off of are just sitting in front of you. I tried two things with my son one was that I am on Methadone given to me by a pain management doctor, I gave him 20 mgs for three days, then 15 mgs., so on. The problem was he lives about an hour away from me so I had to trust that he took them as I told him. The second problem of course is that meant I was breaking my agreement with my doctor, and leaving myself short on meds. I do not know what your money situation is but I ended up paying for a phsyciatrist.
My son was extermely honest with him so he came out with a one month script for suboxone (methadones friendly twin). Instead of taking it all in one month he made it last for almost three. He did this until he was only taking a sliver of a pill everyday. He seems to be better but he might be using ( I can never be sure) and of coursre he needs a support group l;ike N.A. A.A.. This is not for everyone. If you have the will power to do as subzero said I would by all means do that first. Hope this helps. Good Luck! Fall Queen
