thanks all for posting my quit day is Thursday 3/10/11 i cant wait to get off this drug i feel like shit every night and morning. Today im getting things for Thomas recipe and Gatorade also some easy to make food.I really thought i could handle my drugs but this one got me.,I will keep u posted Thanks again
Please google The Thomas Recipe for rx and otc meds you will need while in withdrawal. You will need Immodium, stock up on gatorade, and other fluids.
Also, Benadryl may help you get some sleep, but do not mix it with benzos. If you begin perspiring profusely, just keep changing your clothing. Taking hot baths can help with legs cramps. Try to eat if you are able, although you may lack an appetite for a while.
This should not be to horrible since you've not been taking them for very long.
If you need help, keep posting, let us know what you are going through, you may need some support!
Best wishes to you, and you can do this,
As Sweetlemon already mentioned the Thomas Recipe is helpful. You can also try this site:
If you decide that the cold turkey is too much, then you might consider decreasing your dose slowly and avoiding the withdrawls. I came off the oxy this way and was very successful at it without any withdrawls. That being said, you may want to get it over with in a week by going cold turkey and we are here to support you.
Please keep us posted,
You shouldn't do this by youeself. Today is my 5th day from going cold turkey off of 60-100 mg of oxy a day. I couldn't of imagined how sick I was going to get but if not for my wife and daughter I would have not been able to do it. Confide in a friend. I actually ended up having to go to the hosiptal on day 3 and got withdrawl medication clonidine and vistrial and it has helped me get through the process so much easier. Today is day five not a 100 % yet but feel like I'm through the rapids. Still have body aches and cold sweats but I can focus. The first three days I was literally too dope sick to get up and even walk around. Good luck and find someone to watch you through it and also don't be afraid to go to the doc. I went to a neighboring town and they were more then eager to help me.
