... 70-80 mgs of oxycodone daily. The doctors I have seen, for some reason have all of a sudden left the clinics, so I was refused my oxys. For the past 5 years I have begged for help to get off them, and what happens, They give me more,I have admitted to being addicted and still, the doctors only give me more and no info like cut back your dose or try this instead, they have just kept feeding my addiction. I have high blood pressure and wonder if the Thomas Recipe would work for me, or should I ask to be hospitalized?(I asked this clinic before to hospitalize me, but got ignored). Some one help please.(sorry the first sentence shouldn't have a question mark after it)
Do you have a primary care physician? If so, go see him/her, ask for clonodine (sp) it will keep your BP at a normal rate during WD.
There is always the Suboxone route as well. To locate a doc in your area that is licensed to prescribed Subs, please go to Suboxone.com.
You will need to enter your zip code to find a list. I've heard that tis best to call all of them, for prices and induction fees are all different.
I am no expert on Subs, I did it cold turkey off of prescribed Oxy (160mgs a day) and I don't recommend that route! It was a bit hellish.
However, if you decide to go cold turkey I may be able to help you a bit.
Rehab is another possibility for you. I am sure that you will be given Suboxone in any rehab facility as well.
Best wishes to you,
