I was on 100 ml I got down to 5 ml I've took 5 days worth as i just want it to end and im feeling like crap now how bad and how long is this going to last, I was thinking of taking DF118 30mg for 6 days as in 654321 , I have done this before coming off Herion but with higher doses and valium and it worked no withdrawels as long as its done right, is it worth trying this how long are these withdrawels going to last ? Anyone who has came off 5 ml I really appreciate some answers as you been their, Thanks
Dear LastChance, i wish i knew a definitive answer question, i do have some info i can add. Methadone and suboxone are long acting opiate replacements so their withdrawals last longer than short acting opiates like heroin or percocets. You also will not feel the full wrath of the withdrawal for several days after methadone or suboxone. The meds you mentioned will ease some of the withdrawal symptoms, however, once your brain gets used to a long acting opiate replacement or long acting opiate, it has a higher tolerance for short acting opiates, such as the one you mentioned. In a few days, after you have stopped the codeine pills, you still will feel withdrawal, so, i am going to sugepgest asking your dr for some rx clondine, methacrabomal, a low dose of antidepressant and advise you to stay supported, start a walking program or other regular exercise, this stimulates endorphins, those are what is going to help ease the length and severity of withdrawal symptoms. The walking also tells the brain to reboot the normal pain relieving system it once had in place, it will help regulate your eat sleep wake cycles. You did taper down, but will likely feel some withdrawal for several weeks, but after the first week to 10 days after you get the symptoms, they should ease up a bit more each day. Your brain will reboot that system on its own, but the walking helps get it started faster. Best of luck, patti
Wow, me too. I have weaned down to 5mgs many times resulting in the worst WD's and basically am in the same situation now. To be properly weaned it needs to be done the way they wean u from Predisone (a steriod). When u get to 5mg then to 2.5 every day for a week then every other day, then two days between till u feel comfortable. I am in the process of filing a complaint against my doctor for her ignorance in pain management. Me being weaned was voluntary, not a disaplinary action. I had been on 65mg for ten yrs (FYI). I have had to purchase off friends to wean myself which has cost me 200$ this week. I am so sorry ur going through this, it SUX!! You mentioned another cocktail that helped u get off Heroin, can u give me more info on that?
