I was given my regular monthly drug test and it said I tested positive for opiates, I do not take anything except seroquel and trazodone. I have 11 months of clean drug tests and I offered to immediately come in and take another test. They said no and I was dismissed .I asked how was I supposed to just stop taking my medicine, and was told to de-tox myself. I have forty-six 16mg strips left. Please any advice and what to expect this to be like would be a lot of help
Dropping by 4 mg every couple of weeks until you get to 4 mgs, then dropping by half every couple of weeks until you get to half a milligram a day for a couple weeks, then going to 1/2 mg everyother day for a couple of weeks, then 1/2 mg every third day for several weeks should do the trick. Starting out with an initial drop to 12mgs a day for at least a week, then going to 8 mgs for a couple of weeks, then to 4mg a day for a couple of weeks, then to 2mgs for a couple of weeks, then to 1mg for a couple of weeks, etc., should keep you from any withdrawals.
