Thanks buddy, started taking pain meds for my knees and back I am a tree climber always sore muscles back, and knees. Now I take them everyday about ten a day. When I try stopping I get so sick I don't want to leave home. Already have taken four or five today stuff is taking me down. Thanks again, Al.

It sounds like the beginning of a possible addiction. I would talk to your doctor about it and see what he or she suggests. They can help you tamper off the medication and then hopefully give you information about a Rehab of some kind if that's necessary for you. There's a great drug called Suboxone that's usually used for people who are addicted to heroin and other Narcotics. It's also used in patients with cancer pain in other countries. It's a great drug for pain management do to the fact that it has a ceiling effect which basically means that you can't overdose or take more than about 24 to 32mg. If you take 45mg it will do nothing and it will just go through your body until you expreate it through your body.

Hey MITJASON haven't been around actually went to Haiti on a relief mission at an orphanage in Port Au Prince. While there I got caught up in the clean up and serving food and water decided I was going to go cold turkey off the percocet and off the xanax... bad move I suffered a gran mal seizure! Not good, it lasted two and a half minutes. Since returning home I have started to cut back from the meds on my own. I have gone from taking 10 percocet 10/325s and 8-10 xanax 1.0s cut down to two and a half of each. So far so good. Tried getting in to a dr for suboxone treatment but got lost looking for dr office frustrated turned around and went home and I caught a real attitude from the doc. Anyway I'm back still trying to get off these meds. Thanks for listening and answering my questions few months back. AL

I was on percocet for 5 years and wanted off. I needed it for pain but did not like the tylenol it was too much. I was just switched to morphine and had no withdraw symptoms. Well to be honest my doctor told me that I was not feelin the same pain relief because i was missing the buzz that I got from percocet. I never even knew I was getting a buzz. Personally if you want off do it with medical help. Too many things can go wrong when you listen to what worked for someone else because it may do you more harm than good. That is a personal thing. There may be issues why you can't or will not go that route either way good luck and God Bless. I hope this helps
