I am no doctor in any means. I've recently went of Oxy Contin cold turkey and i am on my 9th day.
If you are tou not a person that is strong or are able to handle continuous pain, plase seek medical advise. I do not wish to anyone to go through the withdraws symptoms as i did. It is just like in the movie, when the guy is tied up on a bed.
On the first day, you will experience major abdomen cramps. ( not long, but very acute ), you will be sweating like crazy, your joints will hurt, you will be so agitated, that you will not be able to stay in place or concentrate more then 3 to 4 seconds, forget sleeping for few days as yours nerves are so critically touchy. There are few extra as well, like tearing, yawning, shaking.
This will last for 4 days. A very long 4 days. this is when you make it or break it. On the fifth day, it seems to have a brighter light at the end of the tunnel, but it is not over yet. Prepare to continue your diharea and good new you might be qble to sleep tonight. On the 6th day, prepare to cry, as you will and this for no reasons. You will not be crying because you need the drugs, you will just be crying anywhere, anytime and this for absolutly no reason.
What I am saying, is that the danger with this form or treatment is unecessary as there is so much help all around us. clinic, web site such as this one, Pharmacist, doctors, friends and the likes.
Why will you put yourself in this situation if you can avoid it. There is also a danger of breaking an organ. Let us not forget that the body definetly goes into crisis. I did it, but personally, I should have take the proper route with councelling and medical supervision.
But there is no way I am going back, just to find out. Altough with all this said, today I will be going to see a doctor and let him know what I've done, and a thing for sure, is that I will be doing whatever he says.
I hope this will help you make a decision.
