Hey Guys..I have had back & neck trauma & several surgeries. Been on oxy contin for several years. I'm down to 2 20 mg pills a day. I'm still in severe pain but want to get off of it bc I want to have a baby within the next few yrs. I do not have an addictive personality at all but I understand my body is physically addicted. Anyone quit cold turkey while still in physical pain? Like I don't get high at all & don't take them for recreation. Never taken more than rec dosages. Is it unrealistic to just stop? I was on 4 80 mg tab over a year ago & have made it this low with no problem. And I figure..I still have pain daily. Why not just get it all out of me? I'm also quitting Neurontin & Soma.
have you talked to your dr about wanting to get off completely, he/she will be able to help. im on a very slow taper, and when i do a reduce in mgs, i feel some body aches, but i use tokuhan patches or icy hot, its what works, and i stretch alot, the part of the withdrawl i dont care for is the restless leg and arm syndrome, its like my bones are crawling, but instead of fighting it, i get out of bed no matter what time it is and i start my day. no kidding, hope this helps
