the wretching form of throwing up and terrible cramps and twitching, also oxycontin and oxycodone.the opiates are over i think, and hear i have to expect from the lorazapam more throwing up and muscle cramps and twitching . how do people do this withdrawal?
after the first 3 or 4 days thats about as bad as it gets then a day or 2 of feeling like that.then it will start to get better a little at a time. just hang in there. If it gets too rough for you to handle go to the ER. No shame in asking for help there. Oh,and you asked "how do people do this"? A few minutes at a time at first then half an hour,then an hour,a day a week and so on. find things to get the way your feelin off your mind,watch TV sleep,drink plenty of fluids try to eat a little something when you can. best of luck and congratz...
I've been redusing for 3 months now after taking OxyContin 80mg x 3 a day for 10.5 years. My biggest complaint was it wasn't working like it did but I sure can tell the difference from 240mg a day to (now) 180mg a day and dropping another 20mg this week. I had no idea my pain level was so high, I can barely walk. I'm sure it's going to get a lot worse before it gets better but... I have to admit, it's not as bad as I thought doing it this way, ( redusing about 20mg's every 4 weeks.) but now I'm on a quest to find something non narcotic that wont eat up my already bad liver. I'm thinking electric stimulator that's implanted but? The bottom line answer to your question is there's no way around the bad symtoms of withdraw, I'm still looking for suggestions to help with everything from nausa, muscle spazzing, headache, anxiety. Good luck to you
