Hello everyone, I'm trying to find a way to get off of pain meds. I've injured my back a few times in the past 20 years,last time was about 5 years ago when a truck hit me in a crosswalk. The doctor i saw after the hospital prescribed hydrocodone,the lower dose of 5 mg.,after a year and a half he was giving me the 10's ,dose of two three times daily. I take one half to two extra pills at least for one to two of my daily doses,or on bad days an extra dose. So my obvious dilemma now is running so low,nearly out after a few weeks . I realize I am addicted but each time I've tried to quit the pain,nausea and depression are so severe. I'm not buying pills other than my prescription monthly. I've tried tapering off,wasn't strong enough.
Had anyone found a natural way to get off these meds? I don't want more drugs. thanks bunches
