... been getting a regular prescription for Oxycodone 80 mg slow release.Well, I have been extremely idiotic and have run out a week early. It has been 12 hours since my last and final pill and I am now starting to feel extremely ill and afraid.I need some support please and will be happy to get any advice as to how to get through this horrific time.I get the pills due to really bad chronic back and leg pain by the way. My Doc will not give me anymore pills until the week is up and they are due.my pain levels are rising very quickly but the worst thing is the fear and feelings of panic and anxiety.I am so afraid .I feel i want to die it is so bad.Cant sleep or eat.Cant keep still and I keep crying.I have a small amount of codeine phosphate 30 mg tablets.Will they help? Or shall i not take them? I am so afraid .I honestly do not think I can get through this
The codeine might take the edge off. They dr is following the contract you have with him, and he expects you to also. How did you manage to take too many? I am so careful with mine, I divide them into a pill box that has daily boxes, and I put 2 in each, that way I know how many I take a day. Try taking an antihistamine to calm your nerves. Take a hot bath, they say that works wonders.
Tut tut. You are feeling what is called withdrawal and from how much you are saying you take it's going to get a lot worse I'm sorry to say. I feel for you and I truly do as I have been in a similar situation in fact serious with drawl can lead to serious life threatening problems from shock to cardio system and central nervous system and dehydration to obstructed bowel pain and cramps or over dose of another drug trying to stave of the effects of withdrawal and even sewercide. If I were you I would go back to you dr and tell him apart from the possible life threatening symptoms that could occur from withdrawal you feel that your pain is reaching the point where you are having sewercidal thoughts and may sir come to it to escape the pain.
Every physician or dr has took an oath to do no harm so he has to help you as you are in need he or she has a duty of care letting you suffer is doing harm.Things are going to get a lot worse for you if you don't ask even if they have abused a drug they should not have to suffer for it, it's cruel in humane and damn cold blooded and hearted and puts a massive strain on the mental well being. You should all so say that you will entrust them to a family member or even the pharmacy and tell the dr to call them to arrange this so it takes the worry out off the dr because he is scared you will over dose.
You should not be punished for this and please go and see your dr with a family member for emotional support and as a witness, yes you have done wrong but admit this to the dr and apologise for this but he has put you in more danger now than you were to begin with and your mental elasticity won't take chronic pain and suffering debilitating withdrawal on top you must go back with a family member and tell him. I know all this as I have been in a similar situation my self through no fault of my own and I lasted 3 days and was rushed into hospital with two cut wrists and nearly died from blood loss and my dr is now working in wall mart because I was made to suffer and he made a sufferer of chronic pain suffer its full effects and debilitating with drawl effects he was called off the judge inhuman, cold and immoral and unsympathetic with no concern for what he was doing to me other than protecting his own interests (protecting him self) and that he would never practice Medicine on a human again. I was awarded damages and was told he could of helped he just ignored it all as he protected him self in case I was taking more than I should of so he neglected his Hippocratic oath.
You need to take care of the most pressing issues above all else. But for everyone else, just know that at least in the US, if patients do not follow their contracts and take too many pills or take other medications not on the contract, they can be terminated as a patient with their doctor. And it can be difficult to find another doctor who will take you. It's part of the government's way of controlling the doctors.
