... detoxed at home cold turkey and it took 3 weeks. She is never to take again and is on pheno for the rest of her life. Recently she was in the hospital and they gave her only four doses of lortab for pain and only 4 doses of xanax for anxiety. We all stupidly thought such small amount would not hurt. three days after the last does she is in full-blown withdrawl just like 15 yrs ago. It is day 9 and it's no better. Does anyone have a suggestion? She is so miserable. How could this happen with such a small dose?
