4 days clean off percs

Hi all, today Iam 4 days clean feom a 2 year 12 pill 5mg perc addiction. I have never mae it 4 days. I started using because my DR thought it would be best for my fibro but it almost made it worse. It changed who I am. So here I am 4 days clean with a question. How long does it take to feel happy again. get some energy back, and the anxiety lesses. I am on zoloft for depression but that is not even helping. Thank you all. You are all angels

Re: 4 days clean off percs

Hi there,
The worst is the first week. Four days can seem like forever, but you do begin feeling a little better each day. As far as the energy, anxiety and depression, that takes some time, more than most of us would like. I'd have to say it was months for me. I was on and off of different anti-depressants but 100 mg of Zoloft is what finally helped my depression. Prior to that, while addicted to the pain pills, I was on Paxil and maybe it's the withdrawal or the drug use, but the anti-depressants don't seem to work too well initially. At least for me they didn't.
But hang in there, at least spring is here, the weather is getting nice, trees are blooming. Try and enjoy your surroundings. Go for walks, even if you have to force yourself to. I'm sure lots of other good advise will come from others.
Stay strong.
Best wishes,
