Re: Fioricet Addiction
I'm not sure how to handle this. My prayers and thoughts go out to you. You sound like my wife, who has a problem with Fioricet. She is 44 and has been taking Fioricet most of her adult life. On average, she takes anywhere from 6-10 per day, depending on how much she has. I have noticed that anytime she has attempted to get off of it, her threshold has been around 5-6per day. That is when she starts feeling the withdrawals, anxiety, etc. She also takes Klonipin for anxiety, about 3, 1 mlgram per day.
When I threatened to leave her several years ago she went off Fioricet cold turkey. Her psych Rx'd a few things to help her during this time. He was worried about seizures. She started back on Fioricet when she went back to work part-time. She got stressed over going back to work part-time.
It has all but ruined her. My wife is a smart, educated women, who struggles daily with this, as well as depression and anxiety. She lies about all of it to her doctors and family members.
Hang in there and keep trying......
