I just want to let everyone know that i am one more person who was addicted to tylenol #3. at one point I was taking about 25 pills aday I want add that I am A recovering heroin user and I started using pain killers for migrain headaches. To make along story short I had to take methadone Hydrochloride to kick pain killers I dont suggest this to any one with OUT a doctors okay. I cant leave a name or address because I am a professional but none the less I just wanted to let people know that addiction strikes people across the board yes you can be an addict and still be a decent human being. GOD BLESS YOU ALL I know how you all feel and am here. I have back problems and started taking the pills to help with the pain. Then the longer I took them, they no longer did the job at the same dose. Before I knew it I was taking more. I am going to the doctor tomorrow. I do know it is possible to stop on your own, but you have to know it won't be easy. You just can't quit "cold turkey" you have to ween off slowly or you will go through serious withdrawl. Contact me and maybe we can be each others support : )
: : : : : I have been taking Loretab and Hydrocodone for about 4 months now. I want to stop, but w/o it I feel very sluggish, and am always tired. I really need to stop this, at one time I would wake up, and eat 8-10 pills, and continue this all day...
: : : : : Any helpful info would be very great...
