I have been on percocet for about 11 month slowly increasing the doses and along the way trying other possibilities along the way to help with pain. I was taking 100mg of oxycodone a day and something else for pain so my doctor put me on methadone 30 mg a day. After being on it for about a week and reading all the posts on how bad it is I have started to ween myself off of it. I am now down to 7.5mg per day and want to know when can I get to the point to get off this all together. I have been having near panic attacks worried about being addicted to meds and withdrawl. I need to find a balance and get control before years go by and its harder.
You can stop cold turkey right away. You have only been taking a small amount of oxycodone for 11 months. The methadone isn't even a factor as you haven't been taking it long enough. Search for "The Thomas Recipe" here on drugs.com and follow it as closely as you can. You shouldn't have to much trouble and if you can stop now you will save yourself years and years and even death. Good luck and stop as soon as possible... Dave
