Marked, its hard to place a time frame on how long withdrawal will take, each person is different so the time frames vary. Rule of thumb is 3-7 days for the worst to be over but I can tell you the first time I came off pain meds I was taking 40mgs of hydro per day and it took a solid 6 days to feel better again. The second and last time I came off 100mcg duragesic patch and 60 mgs/day of Norco (hydro) and it took me about 18 days before I started to feel as if I turned the corner.

You have 8 or 9 days invested up to this point, hang in there its getting better whether you realize it or not. I think you are on the uphill but it's not like one day you get up and everything is over (like a thunderstorm)You can make it if your this far.
