I have had a slight problem with percocets over the past year due to a reoccuring dental issue. I am now 21 days clean from percocets. I am 5 days clean from saboxin (I took 1/2 to no more than1 per day since the 21 days off the percocets. I have felt horrible for the past 5 days. Physically sick! I am feeling a little better today, but, still sick. I have lost a lot of weight because I can't eat. It has been the worst feeling that I have ever experienced! I was finally able to get my saboxin, but I'm afraid to take it. Would you advise taking a small dosage of saboxin at this point? I desperately need to feel better! At the same time, I'm terrified at the thought of "starting over"! Help! What is the best way to come off of these drugs without feeling like I'm dying? If I take even a small dose of saboxin, is it the same as starting over? Am I going to experience all of the same symptoms from day 1 again? What would you advise?
Ask yourself if you are having cravings 4 the percs or if u think u will leave those alone. if u think ur cravings will b a problem, u should b on subs, if not, then i can suggest some things that may get u feeling better. first, start walking or some other exercise regularly. This will stimulate endorphins, they will help heal the damaged neurotransmitter/recept or sites in the brain from the perc use, it will lift ur mood, help reset the eat/sleep/wake cycle, and just generally make u feel better mentally and physically. start slow at first so u won't get shin splints or too sore to keep it up. Google the Thomas recipe opiate withdrawal 4 a list of over the counter meds and supplements that treat opiate WD symptoms. There should also b a journal Thomas kept telling how he felt each day after he stopped pain meds. If u feel depressed at all, get treated 4 that, with antidepressants AND therapy both. not everyone gets depressed after stopping pain meds, but many do, so keep an eye out 4 that. congrats, u have come a long way and should b better soon.
