I feel your pain since i got in to this S**t because of my dental work too. Just hang in there and talk to a Doctor and then stop taking it period. But one advice I can give you is do not go on Suboxone. Do talk to a Doctor. It is very important.
The problem with that is I dont have a doctor anymore trying to find a new one. and ive heard of suboxone and actually thought about trying to get on it but now that ive read your post i definently wont be trying that. I dont wanna trade one addiction for another. dental pain is the worst pain ever and i still have some teeth that bother me i would rather be in labor lol. I just cant believe i let things get this far.
This is a great place to see how others are handling their problem (many similar to yours), and to get motivation to move through this. As you continue to read and post here, I have no doubt you will learn the best way to get through this! Do you have the ability to taper? Some people can have the needed self-control. Others don't. We can't give taper schedules here, but we can support each other! You aren't alone. I am tapering on Opana ER, a very strong opiate. So, I am in the thick of it all with you!!! We can do this together. One day at a time. I am also very committed to AA. It means the world to me.
I have tapered once before and was clean for only 4 days I think if I wouldnt have tapered so fast I wouldve been able to handle it easier. Im gonna try and stat tomorrow. thanks for the support and good luck to you as well.
Hi...I'm on day 34. I was taking hydro and oxy, around 50 to 60 mgs per day.
For anxiety, I highly recommend Kava tea. I use 2 bags and let it steep for 10 minutes (as per Gnarly's instructions :). It really works for me for anxiety. I was getting panic attacks fairly often for the first 5 or 6 days. Things have really mellowed this past week. I've felt good most of the time. I stiil do the Kava when I feel anxious. Good luck.
I am working on my taper too! My family is on a skiing vacation. I am here with them, but don't like to ski. My goal is to get on the pills that I think will be a little easier to detox from! I hope I can do that while I am here. My hope is then to decrease those pills. I hope I can keep it clear in my mind.
We wil get through this.
I have tried switching to another med that would be easier to get off of but the side effects were horrible so i couldnt take it. I really think i need something for anxiety which i have struggled with my whole life and it might be a lil easier on me im hoping to go see a doctor monday so i can get something i actually need.
where can i find kava tea? i will try anything
I got it at the natural pantry. Health food store. Organic food store.
ok thanks definently gonna try this!
I am brand new here. First night. I totally get where you are coming from.
I've been reading alot of posts and someone said not to worry about everything (which I am) and just take it one day or one hour at a time.
I hope you can find some peace in those words.
You are already miles ahead of me becuase you really WANT to quit.
I keep thinking I can go on like this....not sure I'm ready.
And that is far behind you.
Your story sounds very similar to mine. I to was replacing anti depressants with norcos. I think that you should probably see your dr and get on some anti depressants. I take Prozac which is good for anxiety also but my dr also gives me Ativan which really helps with my anxiety. The Prozac takes about 4 weeks to start working so I made sure that I had been on it long enough before I started my first detox and I believe that it helped there were times in the past that I tried to quit without them and it was ten times worse at least the mental part of the detox. This happens to all sorts of people it doesn't make you a bad person or a bad mom. I too have 3 children and I feel like they would be so much better if I were clean. I plan to quit on tuesday. Pm me if you would like to talk I'm in here all the time
I feel your pain. I was up to taking 12-16 10/325 a day until i had to go on a trip out of the country and knew i wasnt going to be able to get some. I didnt realize i had such a big problem until i went through this and did research. What i did was use kratom to settle the wd (this will defiitely help you with anxiety) effects, and then tapered off that. U can get this online or in a gaspipe store. I can give u more info if u like, just msg me
