On & Off

Hi everyone!! I am new and have an addiction problem also. Mine though is diffrent from everything I have been reading. I have been on hydros for seven years due to pelvic pain. What happens is I run out to early sometimes two weeks early so my body is on then off and so on. My withdrawls are not that bad like some of the posts I have been reading, but I do suffer the restlessness, bone pain, depression but once I can refill of course my problem is over until I run out again. I try to do everything I can but my pain is not controlled with the medication I am on so I find myself taking mre than I am prescribed. I'm afraid if I complain my Doc will shut me off completely. I know My body is going through hell but I don't know what to do. Like all of you I just want to be done!! Thats what my body tells me but my head tells me difftrent. I have this little devil sitting on my shoulder saying more, more, more but honestly I am just tired of it all. Please help!!

Re: On & Off

I guess it depends sometimes four a day and sometimes eight to ten. How are you dealing with this?

Re: On & Off

hi winnie im the same way...some days i would take only 3 or 4 and some days i would take 7-10...its sooooo horrible. such a vicious cycle....and i would run out before my new script would be available. i finally just stopped because im soooo sick of it. im going on suboxone starting today hopefully it will help with the withdrawals!
