Oxycodone w/d's and stomach problems

I have been taking small doses of oxycodone almost everyday for the past year. I only take 5 to 10 mgs per day. My last Rx just ran out and I need to quit, but I am having constant diarrhea. I took my last pill yesterday and the stomach trouble stated the next day. I have been taking Immodium with no success. I am on the verge of placing an internet order for a new Rx. I cannot work if I have to be in the restroom all day! What can I do besides restart the drugs?

keep going and dealing with it just ordering more will prolong the w/d,s keep taking the imodium drink lots of fluid and fight it . If you dont you will keep getting more and more and taking higher doses and it never ends it is impossible and you will have to face w/d,s of some kind some time or another your decision on doing it now or later and later it will be worse..

Re: Oxycodone w/d's and stomach problems

Getting the runs is a sign that your body has become dependant on the Oxy and is going through withdrawls. Beleive me, I know, I've been through it about a hundred times. It takes about seven days or so for all withdrawl symptoms to dissapate, but the first two to three days are a real downer. I sympathize......hang in there.

Hang in there! Don't order more more. Just wait it out..there is a light at the end of the tunnel I can assure you. Can you take a couple days off of work?? Everyday responsibilitys can make this seem impossible, but it can be done. Stay strong!!

Deal with the crapper. The oxys will multiply and soon you won't have a job, family, car, house, or soul. Get off the oxys....NOW. Thank god your doses were low.
