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.
day 8 percocet oxycodone cold turkey
Had dreams so I know I am finally getting REM sleep. This morning I took my L Tyrosene 3000 mg. and I had a lot of energy. It's 10 a.m. now and it's already wearing off. I just don't feel like doing anything. My fibromyagia is flaring.
I have to admit, I miss the energy that the percs gave me. But I'm not craving them. I know this will last about 2 to 3 weeks and then I will be back to normal. It would be better if i could get out of the house, but i don't have access to a car.
Thank God all the side effects are gone, at least so far today. All but the malaise.
