Discussions that mention serax

Addiction & Recovery board

I'm new on this board and would like to talk to people who have had to go off the duragesic patch. I was on about 100 to 150mcg for about the last 3 years. I've had to suffer a lot with a failed back operation almost 30 years ago. The last 15 years I've been on almost every pain med, benzo etc. I'm having a lot of trouble finding any doctor that even understands what I'm going through. I am still on 80mgs. hydro daily and my doc just put me back on some 10mg serax, which has helped a lot. I went through benzo wds for almost a year and am not too happy about having to take it again.
Let me know if you have gone off the patch. Thanks
