Re: oxycodone detox nightmares
I experienced those 'intense nightmares' during detox from Oxycodone. I, too, would be afraid to go back to sleep because I was so afraid of those dreams. They were the worst when I initially started my tapering but disappeared after the first few weeks. Sometimes, they were so bad that I would lay in the bed awake so afraid and feeling such a sense of terror and fear. Geeze. Horrible.
I am sorry that these are plauging you. Let's hope that they cease as they did for me. Try some breathing techniques when they wake you and remind yourself, "These are not reality, these are not reality." Hugs and hope for better times soon.
