| | Re: day 9 off percocet cold turkey
Carrara, you should be so proud of yourself for coming this far, I know it is a long hard road. I live in chronic pain and what reach said, is exactly what I have experienced. As the years went by my pain manangement doctor offered stronger med. Some I tryed only for a couple of weeks. The last med. Was oxy., and I took it for about 6 months. Just like reach said, when I woke up which was sometimes 2:00 am to 4:00am., I had more pain and could barely drag myself out of bed. It also put me on an emotional tailspin. I decided to get off also. It took me two months to ween off of 120mg. Of oxycotin per day. It was really hard, but I did it here recently. I will continue to take the norco only. Reach is so right, sometimes there answer is stronger med. And more of it. I think you made a smart choice for yourself. I know it is miserable to stop the oxycotin, but it does get better. When I think about it, the withdrawls for me lasted weeks after I stopped taking it. For me the emotional part was the worse. I feel very blessed that I to this day have had no cravings for the oxycotin not at all, I am thinking it is because of how miserable I was taking it. You are doing a great job, and should be proud of yourself. Remember, this to shall pass, it does get better.
