I have been using roxicet for roughly a year now. It started really recreationally... maybe one here and there when i went out, or out with my girlfriend and i was only eating them- a half of a thirty per dose. From there it slowly turned into more frequent use and up to taking one 30 mg per dose. eventually i was taking 1-2 30mg maybe every other day to just recently maybe every day. i know i am not that addicted as some people and I know i can kick it. i went on a trip to europe for a week and had none, i was fine but felt very sluggish, no sleep, restless legs and could not eat, i do good for a little bit, then reuse. I guess what i am tryin to do know is fight through each day, but some days are impossible at work with the pain. what can i take for those bad days, without making it worse... Soboxin, Methadone, Perks... WHAT? I DONT KNOW ANYMORE AND its gonna cost me alot if i dont stop?
If you really wanna stop like you say you want to you cant even take any on the really bad days. Yes you are correct there is suboxone and methadone treatment but these too are opiods(type of opiate)if you really just want to quit quit cold turkey is the way to do it. Take plenty of warm baths for the RLS and take imodium to control the diahrea and drink plenty of water for the dehydration. I was told sweat and piss is the quickest way to get it out of your system. So what kinda injury was it ? that had got you addicted to the roxis. Ive been on norco for 7 years now and its not an addiction i need these meds for a lower lumbar spine injury i still to this day dont know what caused it. I can tell you this much though i was a hard worker before my body expired and gave out on me. Now im just stuck in this rut taking meds and never working i just feel useless to my family. The only way you are going to be able to save your money is to just quit. Good luck to you michelle.
Dear pdr1984, I agree with mrspage. Perhaps you should cold turkey off of this shite, before you become a slave to opiate cravings! I did the cold turkey route, and I'll tell you this... a picnic it is not!!! Cold turkey W/D takes balls/ovaries, and you will NEVER FORGET IT. And the memory will keep you away from opiates (prescribed or recreational) the rest of your natural born days, me friend! If you want a full description of opiate withdrawal, google it, get some info and some Immodium, ibuprofen, gatorade, vitamins, and minerals.
Be strong, don't cave to the cravings, you can do this!! If I did it, anyone can.
It is a challenge indeed, now man or woman up... DO IT!!!
Good luck to you, sweetlemon
Mrspage and sweetlemon are right. Why start another opiate? Get some Imodium AD, advil, a good multi vitamin, take hot baths, soak all day if you can. Drink as much water as you can hold, at least a gallon per day. The more you sweat and urinate the faster and better you will feel. Get outside and get some exercises going. The more you walk, the more your legs will feel worn out and get rid of that restless leg syndrome. It's just a matter of making up your mind and doing it! Your energy will return, I promise. You just have to force yourself to get out and do things. Good luck to you. I know you can do this. But please don't cover the problem with other opiates. You addiction isn't that bad and should be only a matter of a week or so before you are back to your old self again!
My best wishes for success!
