Thanks for your help ahead of time!
I have had chronic pain since 93 and have been thru most of the drug line.
I just had a spinal cord stimulator implanted three weeks ago so now it is time to taper. I have been on extended hydrocodone for years with others on top. I have tapered off of the ultram from six a day to none but my pm doc switched me from extended oxy to 5-325 /three a day. Today went OK, felt like crap but tonight I only slept and hour and a half and I felt like I was going to crawl out of my skin! I took a 5-325 and an elevil and I have settled down. I had planned to do three a day for several days and then start breaking the pills in half and go from there down. I almost went back and started taking the old meds again. I wish I would have read more of the post here before I started
Is this workable or am I nuts!! I could scream right now!! I stopped cold turkey many years ago so I have an idea whats ahead. I cant work yet and I have a son in college, one in high school and a wonderful wife who puts up with my crap
Thanks for letting me vent and for your suggestions.
