... binge. The last 3 days or so it's been more like 1 mg, but it's hard to tell with the little chunks sometimes. I have maybe .5mg left for tonight and that all. Can you all tell me what to expect? I've been thru withdrawls before and it was awful, but that was years ago after years of H. How long should this last? With only being on it a month, will it be full blow withdrawl?
Dear diditagain, I feel for you! I just joined this site or I would have responded quicker to your question. Bet you are in full withdrawal now, are you? I was prescribed Oxy for ten years... 'tis just heroin in pill form. My cold-turkey withdrawal was horrifying! It has been 9 months and 4 days clean for me, and I feel great! Still in pain, but I have my life back. You are on the right road my friend. Sure hope you are doing ok. Please update us on your progress. I give a shit about you, so don't give up!!!
I hope you are doing ok! The one thing you have going for you is you weren't on it that long. Honestly I had used Buprenorphine twice to detox off of opiates and only stayed on for a week or two and NO withdrawals AT ALL when they tapered me off. Now that I have been on it for 5 years... WHOLE other story, however if tapering correctly and slowly I have heard that w/d's can be less severe but possibly last longer. I would suggest getting off the sub asap. You have two choices, you can try and get more sub and taper a little more slowly down to .5mg or .25mg or you can try and use some OTC or perscribed "comfort meds" to get you through. Another positive for you, you were only taking a small amount. My doc had be on 16mgs!
