... oxycotin.I am doing well, compared to a bundle a day I am down to (1), 40 mg pill a day. not much different in my opinion than going to the meth clinic. I was told that percocet was a good "next" step. I got enough to take (1), 5 mg pill every other day till I could go cold turkey. My problem is this, when I take one I have terible withdrawl symptoms, way worse than if I took nothing. does anyone know why this is? I need about 1 more week before I just go "clean". what is the difference between oxy's and the oxycodone in percocet?
