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.
Short term memory loss from psych drugs
I am taking the following meds and have been for a long time. I am moving up my psych visit so my doctor and I can discuss me getting off some of the meds. (It seems like every time I go there, if I have a complaint, he gives me a new scrip. My diagnosis is "mood disorder"

I forget what I was going to say. I can't remember that we just watched (that movie) last night. Did I wipe? So I wipe again. etc. I have to write everything down or I forget what I am supposed to do next. At my last 3 jobs, I had to quit because I couldn't learn how to learn hot to do them even though I had repetitive training. I cannot remember the names of the people I work with when I work.

Uroxitrol for urinary retention. (probably due to the meds) It is really for prostate problem for men.
wellbutrin 450 mg
buspar (started taper 1/23/13
lamictal was taking 200 now on 150 mg
valium (using ashton method to taper off, will take 9 months from 1/23/13.
flexeril 20 mg at night
was on percocets but got off of them a week ago.
I am going to look up the meds that keep me from getting REM sleep. My drugs just know me out. I rarely dream. I am knocked out til morning.
If you have any experience with this, please comment. Thanks
