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

Posted 01-25-2013 at 08:09 AM by rosebuddy (My life on percocet, withdrawal sucks but worth it.)

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. ...

day 7 percocet oxycodone cold turkey

Posted 01-24-2013 at 02:11 AM by rosebuddy (My life on percocet, withdrawal sucks but worth it.)

I am so grateful to have made it this far. My biggest complaints are sleeplessness and constant headaches. I don't know if the headaches are related but I very rarely have headaches. Now it is 4 am. The latest I have slept is 3:30, but I keep waking up.

Had 2 drinks. I listened to a radio show - the democracy station on Sirius - and the topic was opiates. 2 things I heard scared me.

1. Taking percocet and drinking is stupid and will ruin your liver because of all...

day 6 percocet withdrawal Part 2

Posted 01-23-2013 at 10:39 AM by rosebuddy (My life on percocet, withdrawal sucks but worth it.)

OMG. I was so stupid to think that the w/d side effects would be gone so quickly. I hurt all over, I'm freezing even though the thermostat is set on 71. I feel like whining. I'm so exhausted at 12:30 pm. Told hubby don't expect anything else from me today. He was ok with that. so back to mindless tv, ibuprphen. My neck hurts from laying in this recliner for 5 days. I'm going to lay in bed and watch tv in there. Also a drag that I'm in menopause with hot flashes but I have goose bumps and am freezing....

day 6 percocet withdrawal

Posted 01-23-2013 at 08:29 AM by rosebuddy (My life on percocet, withdrawal sucks but worth it.)

Still not sleeping well. Up at 1:30. diarrhia is better. I didn't take the imodium. I have energy from the L Tyrosene 2000 mg. I cleaned up the house, got cleaned up, and am getting ready to do the bills. I had to take a break because my buspar hit like a ton of bricks. Tapering off of that too because of acute chronic short-term memory loss. I feel like I have gotten over the worst part.

RE: drinking - drank 1/2 pint of vodka.

didn't go to any meetings.

Day 5 cold turkey percocet. Sobriety is next.

Posted 01-22-2013 at 06:35 AM by rosebuddy (My life on percocet, withdrawal sucks but worth it.)

W/D symptoms have eased. I just cannot sleep.

I drank last night and got pretty drunk on a pint of Jack with my husband who is also my best friend. I know in my heart that we aren't going to make it if we don't stop drinking together. That's a hard task to accomplish because we talk the other one into drinking plus it is hard for 2 people to hit bottom together. We are having money problems too, so we can't afford alcohol. Our livers are damaged no doubt because we drink every day,...
