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 9 percocet oxycodone cold turkey withdrawal
I have a terrible headache x 4 days now, but realized it is from the air being so dry; nose drops help immensely.
I feel good today except for that. No w/d symptoms. Slept all night, although I woke up with the most painful leg cramp. I take vitamins including extra biotin and b12, magnesium and eat bananas.
I took the L-tyrosene and it is wearing off already. But the house is cleaned up and now I can relax.
Well, I guess that's about it. I made it. I am so grateful to be clean. Now I just need to get sober. A topic for future blogs.
