Have you considered asking him for a taper schedule? If you can't get one from him or its too uncomfortable to bring up, there should be tapers here or on other boards, or google it.
I am sorry you are going thru this, but you can do it.
ya know whats strange about hydrocodone, is some people can have zero withdrawals which is me. Then some can with only taking 2-3 day for a few weeks will. I would suggest if you really need them for pain and don't wan to screw things up with your Doc, Then tough it out and taper with what you have, it's nowhere near as bad as the Morphine,Oxycontin,and other things alot of us on this board take, so the withdrawals will be minimal and manageable. If you have a handful even 6 you could have the willpower to weather the storm, so long as there is no high blood pressure probs or anything, Hot baths,good food,exercise,pepto Imodium if ya get the s...s but I doubt it, but we all are different,Hydrocodone is on the bottom of the ladder, so try not to freak out tooo bad not having it, just maybe take 1 tomorrow and see if you are sick or showing symtoms and maybe half to calm the cravings. till it lowers in your system, which is really overnight with the short acting meds, well I do wish you luck in this. We all care here so don't cause yourself this problem anymore, would be the best advice Take Care get back please let us know how your handling it Tony
Thats what I am addicted to for over 8yrs. The best thing to do is to have someone stay with you during your detox process because it will be rough. Take just 1 or 2 a day for several days, then go to half a tab for a few days, then none at all. It will take about a week to detox. Thats what I did, I stayed with my bff and her family and she helped me detox, she gave me only half a tab a day then none...it was hard but I felt better once I was clean. Feel free to msg me if you want to talk. Your not alone, we are here to help.
