I have been taking oxy and hydrocodone for several years. Monday at 10pm i took my last one and today is Thursday pm. The last two nights have been hell. Uncontrollable jerking around, can't sleep (6 hours in two days). I have actually went to work both days. Today, i barely got home i was so tired. I got a one and half hour nap without any jerking. Am I on the downside of this crap. I started taking these for medicate reasons, but i choose to abuse them. My fault, but they gotta go. Any recipes, sugguestions... it would be appreciated.
WOW a true trooper you have just a few more days to go. There is what they call the thomas recipe this is helpful if you can get your hands on some benzos(ativan,xanax,or valium) you just google the recipe and you will find it no problem. There is also just dealing with it cold turkey and there is weening off it if you can find a doctor willing to help or suboxone and methadone treatment. I do not recommend the suboxone and methadone treatment cause these two medications are opiates and will still keep you hooked on opiates. Eitherway it goes i hope something works out for you good luck.
Hi jeffm99, I did a cold turkey WD off of oxy 10 months and 11 days ago.
Please google the Thomas Recipe, it will provide you with a list of over the counter meds that you will need. Just know that I am in your corner! If I did it you can too. It is not going to be a friggin' walk in the park, but you will have your life back, and that is saying something!!!
There is the Suboxone alternative, if you wish to forego the hell of withdrawal. But Suboxone is as addictive as opiates... I believe, might be wrong about that. You will get lots of responses about Sub's, lots of people are on that track, and it seems to work for a lot.
Do know that the physical stuff is bad, but be prepared for the mental stuff, like anxiety (maybe) or depression. Just a heads up for you on that.
Good luck and we will be here for you when the going gets bad!!!
