While is isn't always easy, tapering off the vicodin and percocet is the simplest way to avoid the withdrawals. You need to slowly reduce the number of milligrams every week over many weeks time. If you can tell us how many and what strength you are taking, I would be happy to help you with a taper schedule. It can be done without much discomfort.
Hello! I finally ( after months of reading) decided to join and post. My husband and I are both addicted to pain meds. I had them perscribed to me after I gave birth to my son. At 1st took them for pain, and then started taking them for the euphoric effects. Offered him one and the rest is history. We would take them everyday for a year! After we couldn't buy hydro's anymore we moved on to roxy. Evetually we got off them with the help of suboxone, pretty much substituted one thing for another. Wanted to get off those... Now been back on pain meds for 5 months now. Taking on average 160mg of roxicett a day. We realized we were headed down the same road ( a little too late IMHO) but none the less are in the process of quitting. This time EVERYTHING. We are now down to about 60mg a day. It has still been tough, it is the mental cravings that get me.
The cravings will hit me so intensity sometimes but I have found if you try and TRY to ignore them or atleast not give in, the feeling will go away. The physical aspect hasnt been that bad. It's the mental, that's one reason I'm here, support. I will try to give you the best advise I have to any questions you may have about tapering or w/d. I'm sorry if I'm doing this wrong, the forum business that is. Haha
