Hey everyone. I have been lurking around this board for months now and have read so many encouraging stories here. I have been addicted to hyrocodone/oxycodone for about a year and a half now. I take about 16 - 20 7.5's a day. I tried going cold turkey back in October. I made it a week. The wd symptoms were not as unbareble as I had expected, except for the diareah and the anxiety. Those were out of control. I lost about 5 lbs. in that week and I was only 93lbs to start. My anxiety was so bad I couldn't function at all. I couldn't take care of my 1 year old daughter and I definately couldn't work. After taking a week off from work I caved in and took just 2 pills over the course of my first day back to work. They made me feel normal again. Then of course, I went right back to my old ways. I need to get off these things for good. I feel like such a loser. My question is this: how long does the diareah and anxiety usually last? Besides taking xanax or valium, how have some of you dealt with the anxiety? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I know I could do this if I could just keep those 2 things from killing me!
