I have been on hydro codeine after 4 back surgeries. The orthopedic dumped me off at pain mgmt for the last year. Although, I have done cortisone shots, they haven’t worked. I desperately want to be off the meds, so I went to another dr for another opinion. The newer dr said the shots would be helpful if I wasn’t taking medicine. He said to ween off. That’s all I needed to hear to begin the process. On a daily, I’d take 47.5mg a day. The first day I decreased slowly because I was scared. However, I’m on day 3 with restless arm/leg pain and feel like ****. I don’t want to stop, but need help making it through. I’d like to continue decreasing by 10 mg daily. Is that too much? Tomorrow, I’ll be at just that 10 mg. Should I just bite the bullet after tomorrow and just be done with it? I have 2 school children at home that need me and a supportive husband who can help through the weekend. Come Monday, he’s back to work.
