Hi Friends. I have posted a bit lately, but I really need as much help as possible. My body is not allowing me to get to the place I want to be with my taper/detox. After having a couple successful periods at 25 mg of OpanaER (I am on it 3 X a day), I cannot get through with this amount because of bad pain! I don't want the pain to get out of control! (the anxiety is really bad as well). So I have to take a 5mg short-acting tablet. This hasn't gotten rid of all the pain, but it helps some, it makes it bearable. Please give me your suggestions for getting through this. How do you relax into a detox/taper? How do you endure? Your encouraging words will take me far in this unbelievable challenge. Thanks so much. Marie
