: I need some advise on how to slowly taper off Lortabs. I have been taking these pills for approximately 3 years and when I try to stop taking them I get some of the worst withdraw symptoms. It makes me so sick that I give up. Are there any suggestions from anyone who has gone through this before. I have posted on this subject quite a few times before without much success. However, I am now in a desperate situation. I've no other choice but to stop and I can't seem to muster up what it takes to stop. I would greatly appreciate some feedback from anyone who has been there or knows someone that's been there.
: Please don't tell me to go to my doctor. My insurance run out & I don't have the money.
: Thank you in advance for your response.
Detox by yourself is possible but without support I found that it rarely lasted long for me. The painful withdrawal symptoms can be lessened with drugs like Rivera, but those must be obtained through a doctor. Look in your local phone book for a local free detox center. There should also be groups or agencies listed which may be able to point you in the right direction. Since leaving Lortab behind, my quality of life has increased tremendously. Do it for yourself.
