My husband has been prescribed several medications for knee pain in the past 2 years. He's been "doctor shopping" I guess you could say to continue receiving how many he needed a day. I started taking a couple of his a day, then it started we were both taking them just to get high. Weve had Vicodin, Percocet, Norco, Methadone and Morphine. Its been 2 years of both of us going to the doc (for actual injuries) but making it seem like were in pain so we can have more. The both of us have been taking 10 to 20 pills a day. Mainly the Norco 10/325. My husband basically got caught by doctors and pharmacies talking and so forth, so we went to buying them illegally. Thats expensive. Weve decided for our family (the two of us, our 2 and 4 year old) that we need to quit cold turkey. Were on day 4 now and still both feeling like were going to die. Weve done everything, hes tried to ask his doctors for help like suboxone or xanex and theyve told him to check into a hospital. Theres no way either of us could do that! So here we are, sitting at home, both off of work for a week now and still cant manage to do daily activities. For those who are trying to do this, its tough but you have to fight it. I cant allow my kids or anyone else think im a bad person for this. The only things that have helped me, have been Immodium for diahrreah, Xanex for anxiety, Ambien for sleep, Vitamins, water, and Gatorade to keep your body from shutting down. Right now Ive taken some cough syrup and its really helped with not being able to sit still. Whatever you can do to take your mind off of the horrible feelings is what you should do. Watch movies, listen to music, go for a walk, do laundry, talk to someone on the phone. Stay strong, thats all I can think of, and anyone who has any advice for me, it would be appreciated!
