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. I am not living in secrecy, which feels great. Sex drive is back. Yay! I don't have to live my day around when it's time to take my next pill or worry about leaving the house without them.

I have had a tooth ache for 3 weeks now, waiting to see a dental specialist. Aleve works. and so does Ibuprophen to kill the pain.

If you are addicted to percocet (oxycodone) or vicodin (hydrocodone) You can get off of them. I never thought I would be able to stop.

Now the focus is staying off of them. And I feel like I will because of all the negative side effects.
