Re: sub for 3 years now

Hi, My sub dr. started me on 12mg. When I got down to 8mg he had me take 8mg the first day then 4mg. the second day then back to 8mg the third day then back to 4mg. I did this rotation for 2 weeks. If you think about it its averaging out to 6mgs. After 2 weeks I went down to 4mg. for 1 week, dropping 1mg per week. When I got down to the 1mg I stayed on that for the one week then jumped off completely from there. I was so surprised how painless the tapering was and stopping the subs completely. I,ve heard all the horror stories about wds. from subs but it was a piece of cake all things considered. Get a calander to keep track and if your taking the strips when you get down to 4mgs. ask your dr. to give you the 2mg strips. There easier to cut. If I,ve confused you let me know and I,ll try to write this better. You can get off subs. There were a couple nights at 1mg that I,d wake up thruout night but still managed to get back to sleep. It was nothing like past oxy wds. Good luck and lets hear how your doing.

I am so glad my post helped you I had a spinal fusion done Monday 30th. They did 4 rods...8 bolts and 3 bone graphs. The surgeon took bone marrow from my hip to coat everything so my body would accept it as my own and to help with the growth. Its not been an easy recovery but I am hopeful that after I do recover my pain levels will be way down. Thank you.
