Re: Question about relapsing on alternate drugs of choice
Yes, most definitely after a period of being clean then having a slip, getting clean again is more difficult. For me, I found every time i relapsed and then tried again to get clean, it became harder...to the point where I just couldn't do it myself any more. I'm not sure if it was partly psychological because i knew what I was going to have to go through, or if those relapses mess up your brain even further. Personally I think it's a combination of the 2. ....and going from Ultram to oxycodone (percoset) is a major jump up in the opiate family, so it's no wonder you're feeling worse than before. Thank God it was only 2 weeks on them. Whatever you do, don't take any more opiates or it will just prolong and increase your sickness. And I think you're right about jumping off the AD at the same time, probably made it much worse. I hope you get feeling better soon.
