: I Have only been on Octicontin a few weeks so I dont think I am dependant on it. Only take it now to help me sleep if i am having severe pain.
: by the way Sciatica is a pinched nerve normally in the lower back wich causes severe pain in the legs and feet( this is only a brief discription).
Ow, that has got to hurt. Thanks for the low down on the basic definition of Sciatica. Congrats on being able to reduce your medication intake. I myself find that I'm not addicted to the methadone, but rather the Neurontin which I take for Restless Legs Syndrome and in relation to my Fibromyalgia. I'm in the process of going through a detox of the Neurontin, and I have to admit, it's very hard :(. Makes me feel like I'm going to insane at times. Until I started this detox though, I didn't know I was addicted to it. I mention this to remind you not to let your gaurd down for withdrawal symptoms. So take care, and good luck - Congrats on the continued improvement :)
