using narcotics during detox is not a real good idea as it is not defined as a detox if u r taking them....it will prolong this even longer if u continue...what was ur original dose? and DOC?...u may have needed to taper down a bit if it was a high dose...if u detox and quit taking narcotics the amount u used daily and the DOC can help determine how long til u feel better plus age, nutrional status and other things....1 week for most...2 weeks for some til the physical symptoms are gone...methadone and suboxone may take longer...keep posting

How much morph were you doing? And for how long? It is very possible that you are experiencing w/d's from the morphine you were on. A 60mg and a hydro may not be enough to keep you from w/d's if you had a large appetite. More information would help a lot.

What are your intentions? You want to quit? Are you also doing the hydro? And are the morph's time release? MS Contin? All of this stuff makes a difference to answer your question.

Depending on your answers there are things to do. Morphine is a rugged w/d cold turkey. But i did it. I am going to just guess here....but I am gonna say that you want to quit doing them. And you want to do that as easily as possible. Eight weeks is fortunately not a long history. You don't need to worry about methadone or suboxone....So check out the med help library. Read up on the Thomas Recipe and the Amino Acid Protocols....and make your mind up about how you want to approach it. I am of the opinion that you can get away from 8 weeks of 100mg morphine without a lot of damage. Do you have enough of the hydrocodone to adjust to only it and then slow down on the hydro? Perhaps what you are doing will work for you. Just add another day to the no use category every other week - - until you get to nothing. That is a modified taper plan that some use. PM me if you need to, others here are better at taper plans if you wish to slow down gradually....lots of advice here - keep posting (or PM)
