: I've been on oxycontins for about 18 months, I've worked up to 40mg. x 12 per day, now it's time to get
: off of this so called wonder drug, I've tried numerous times to detox but it's pure hell, does anyone out there
: have a solution or formula on making the withdraw easier, PLEASE, Iam at my end.
been there, done that. I took up to 40 oxycodones (percocet) per day. The only way I'm convinced a person can get off them is to be isolated (in a treatment center) and de-toxed. It's pure hell. The hot and cold sweats, leg cramps, some abdominal problems, diarrhea and/or vomiting. You need not only de-toxed, but also treatment. If you are really at your end, you will do WHATEVER it takes to get your life back. I did. I love life today. Good luck. The withdrawls are a long 2-3 weeks of no sleep. I know, I've been there. That's why it's almost impossible to do it out-patient or at home. You have issues to deal with, and need the reinforcement.
