I have been on this drug for 12 years, I want to get off it. I discussed it with my doctor, she sais she does not know how to help me get off this drug..Help me please.
Are you serious about your doctor? Wow! That sounds strange. Not even a suggestion? Don't worry, there are members here that will have excellent advice for you. While you're waiting for a response from more knowledgeable members, google the "Thomas Recipe." I believe there are a few prescription meds on the list of things you will need to successfully detox from Oxycontin. At least ask your doctor to prescribe the meds on the list. I think there's only a few. Personally, I think tapering down is the best way to go. Cold turkey will not kill you, but you may feel like you want to die. Drugs.com is an excellent forum for people seeking support and advice on so many topics. Good luck to you and wishing you much success.
