Hi everyone, I'm just trying to find out some information on what the best method for my addiction is. I've been abusing percocet for about 2 -1/2 yrs using them everynight i never had a presciption just bought them from various people. I would only take them at night as a recreational habit i took about 2 of the yellow percs with 10/325 imprinted on the pill. It sounds like a small amount compared to the posts i've read but i cant seem to kick the habit, everytime i stop i make it a week and the anxiety overpowers me. I've never been clean for more than 6 days straight and i never experienced severe withdrawals just slight sweating or nausea, the anxiety is what really broke me. I have an appt with a specialist next week im trying to see if suboxone could help me get clean, but im not sure if i really need or im just struggling with a complete mental addiction. I'm basically asking if anyone has any idea whats going on with me and if suboxone is right for me?
Buprenorphene would not be that way to go with such a small amount of oxycodone. You are better off going cold turkey or a rehab. Buprenorphene is about 400 times the strength of oxycodone so with the amounts you are taking it wouldn't mske sense to take it.
If you go cold turkey then the best thing to do is to stay as active as possible. Eat a high protien diet for at least a couple months. Drink lots of gatorade and walk at least twice a day.
Do this before this stuff really grabs you and screews your life up. I was actively addicted for 25 years and I can tell you that if you can kick the shit now it will be so much easier then if you go into full blown addiction. Even though you aren't getting them legally you aren't really abusing them which leads me to believe that you don'y really have a addiction but more of a living problem. You really do need to stop taking these before they really do damage your life..Good luck... Dave
