i have posted quite a few times on here before...i am still taking percocet for my back issues, but i know i take it more, and i am verrry scared to go off....as i have stated i just started a new job and i have 2 young kids to take care of......i really never take more than 3, ten mg pills a day but it has been about 18 months now, and all they do is make me utterly exhausted!!!! i mean i cannot stay awake like 2 hours after i take it.....but after, before any withdrawal symptoms start i feel good, so why do i take another???? i tapered off klonopin when i found out i was pregnant and i could not leave my house for 2 weeks!! i cant have that happen again! i find it VERY hard to taper, i have no self control with that.....then i go back to the fact that i do have a legit pain issue, but like i said these damn pills just make me so tired...UUGGGHHHHH i just dont know what to do!
