Just an account of a taper a relapse and then a cold turkey withdrawal. I have been on percocet 10/325 15 mg every 5 hours since 2004, plus got higher on them. I have tapered off once and cold turkey once. The percocet gave me so much energy, and a feeling of euphoria (I love that word)I needed it for pain a sometimes. The best word for detox is hell. The best word for 2 weeks after detox is melancholy (also a great word, just fits). And the best word for good clean abstinence is reality. If you are dealing with opiate addiction and want recovery, I hope that my blog will help you as much as it helps me.

I am glad to be off the percs. They have been apart of my life for about 8 or 9 years. I have been able to taper off before, but always went back. To be honest, there are some things that I miss about them--mostly the energy. But it is so wonderful not to be constipated. It also a relief that I don't have to worry about running out, having to count and recount my pills all month. My husband took them too, and I gave him his cut each day, and he always wanted more by evening. We always ran out early....

30 days off percocet (oxycodone)

1/18/13 woohaa! 30 days. I feel great most of the time. Sometimes, I even have the energy that the percocet gave me, but it's natural. I feel free! If you are struggling with addiction, taper off or go cold turkey. If I can do this anyone can.

ughh feels like beginning of w/d from oxycodone

Posted 02-12-2013 at 10:29 AM by rosebuddy (My life on percocet, withdrawal sucks but worth it.)

Yesterday, I had lots of energy, ran lots of errands and was busy all day. Today, it's like I'm in w/d again day 18 I think. Runny nose, yawning like crazy, vivid dreams, waking up in the middle of the night is usual, but last night it was brutal. I have so many things to do today, but I just feel blahh. I thought I was past this.

3 weeks clean 2 8 13 oxycodone

Posted 02-07-2013 at 11:39 AM by rosebuddy (My life on percocet, withdrawal sucks but worth it.)

I can't sleep throughout the night, and I have very strange dreams. In one, I was walking a black pig in a big city.

No other w/d symptoms. I feel good except for the lack of sleep. Hopefully this will pass.

Went to the dentist yesterday for a filling, and didn't even think of asking for something for pain. My tooth hurt later, but not bad.

I have terrible headaches, but I think that's because the air is so dry.

If you are tapering off,...

Day 14!! clean. Day 2 sober

Posted 01-31-2013 at 09:41 AM by rosebuddy (My life on percocet, withdrawal sucks but worth it.)

I feel a lot better today. I have been cleaning house, and I have a lot of energy.

I didn't drink last night! My sponsor came over and we talked for a long time. She is a wonderful person and my best friend. I am going to a meeting tomorrow.

It feels so great to feel good to not be hungover or speeding on percs. I'm me. What a concept.

L Tyrosene 1000 mg yesterday and today.
