Discussions that mention valium

Addiction & Recovery board


Hi all,

I have been on 1 or 2 10/325 percocet every 5 hours for 1 1/2 years. I am down to 1/8 of a pill twice today and none tomorrow. I am using the minerals, ltyrosine, B complex from the post i saw on this site. So far today, i am doing ok. I will be so glad to get this out of my system for good, even though i suffer from chronic pain. It is just too tempting to take more than i need. I am also using ultram for the pain. I know these can be addicting too-all ready went through the taper from those, but i never abused them and am only going to take them for a few days.

I have been on Concerta 54 for 2 1/2 years and it is like speed to me which probably means i don't need them. I feel listless, bored, unmotivated.

Lastly, I tried a xanax taper w/o using valium from the ashton manual and it was a nightmare. I have been on 0.5 mg 3 x day and 2mg at night for almost 10 years. I went ahead and upped my dose because i learned from the ashton manual - and the side effects - that i was tapering too quickly. I am calling my doctor on Monday to see if he will let me do a taper with valium.

Coming to this board helps so much. I need support. Thanks.

Donna
