In Reply to: Re: need help getting off lortabs posted by frank on August 17, 2000 at 23:41:49:

: : I hope there is someone out there who can help me. I have been addicted to lortabs for several years. I have taken up to 15 lortab 10's a day!! Approximately three days ago I stopped cold turkey. I was so depressed and realized that they were controlling my life. Every day I woke up wondering if I had enough pills to get me through the day. Well, by the second day off the pills I was having withdrawl symptoms so severe I couldn't handle it. So I went to see a detox doc. He put me on clomidin,phenobarbitol and a cramping med. He assured me these would help me get through. But,,,I am fighting this every day and night, at night I can't sleep. My legs ache so badly that I toss and turn until I get up. During the day I have anxiety so bad I feel like I am going to die. I still think every day that I need the pills. I originally started on them because of two herniated disc's in back and I have also been diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my spine. I am in sooo much pain!! I don't know if I can make it through this. Please help!!!!!
: You need to go to treatment. The only sure way is the way you are going through it. It's hell for about 2 weeks, then gets slowly better. You need support while you are experiencing it and after. Go to Narcotics Anonymous or AA. Get some support. I was addicted and took 25 lortab 10 at a time. I went to treatment and have been clean for 240 days now. I also have disc problems in my neck. There are centers that will help you. They helped me! I used for 15 years. I'm free today!!!!! You can be too. Keep in touch. I am 28 years old and have been addicted to loratab for 5 years. I am not in pain but I am convinced that I cant do anything without them, I feel very ashamed and alone and have told no one.I need to know that there are normal people out there that are going through the same thing. I dont think Im strong enough without them.HELP!!!
