Try taking Immodium as needed to help with the bathroom issues,,,your body is getting rid of all the toxic stuff. Baby yourself right now and keep hydrated. A BRAT diet can help also with the tummy problems ( Bananas,,Rice,,Applesauce and Toast). It will pass I promise. Hang in there!~Bkitty

Thank you!  Do you know how much longer? And is my body detoxing even if I have 1 pill in my body a day?
Avatar universal
Yes,,your body is ridding itself of the toxins and hydrocodone. You are soo close that if you jumped off now the withdrawals would be what you are experiencing now and not linger around. Listen to your body and baby yourself right now. These symptoms will pass,,,have you ever been really sick in your life?? Its kinda like that,,you will get better I promise. Sorry you are feeling poopy right now. ((Hugs))~Bkitty

Get some Immodium and some popsicles with pedialyte.  I would jump now, that one pill isnt really going to much matter.  The quicker you do this the quicker you will feel better.  I remember spending alot of time in the bathroom and thinking this room needs to be remodeled!  It will pass gg.  Hang in there, you are doing great!   sara

You will experience the same thing you are going thru now.  You will be achy also.  Warm baths work wonders.  Dont be afraid, remember we said we would be right here to help you.

Hi doll...
Take a deep breath.... I know you're really scared.  This process is so much easier if you surrender to it.  The fear of the w/d is making this tougher on you.  You've prepared yourself and the only way out is through it.  I would jump now...
Do as Sara said and get in a warm bath.  I used (still do) a heck of a lot of lavender bath oil.  It's calming.  Make yourself some Sleepy Time tea, and do whatever you can to distract yourself.  The fear of the process is often worst than the process itself.  You can do this girl...Believe in yourself.

Remember my message? Two or three people just said the exact same thing I told you a few hours ago. You're in withdrawal as we speak and it's not going to be much worse, if any, than what it is now. You're just prolonging the symptoms. I know how bad you want to do this, and like Lu said, your fear is making it tougher on you. Trust us when we say you'll be okay. You have felt the symptoms for over two weeks now and still managed to taper down to 1 pill over the last four days. Do you know what that means? It means you are doing it! It just does to show how much of this is mental. You're going through withdrawals yet you feel like you have to continue taking that one pill and for what reason? That one pill isn't doing anything for you. All it's doing is making your brain and your body a prison. There's only one way to escape. There's only one way to make the pain subside. You have nothing to fear. Like I said above, you're already going through withdrawals so there is no reason to be afraid.

What do you say? With your determination you will just fine. The sooner you do this the sooner you can be free.

Like Sara said, it will be easier. It's not going to be any worse than what you are already feeling. You've go this!

Turn on some soft music and sing along.  I am fairly sure it was Sara who suggested this to me on my roughest night and it really helped...
Also...HYDRATE.  Take small sips constantly...Dehydration makes w/d symptoms worse.  Sending you a big cyber hug...

I wouldn't consider myself the strongest person I know; I don't like to be uncomfortable, and having gone through withdrawals before, I realized that I didn't have the spine for it. But like you, I knew I had to stop putting drugs into my body. I also did not have the willpower to taper, I admire you for that, so I went ct. I sure didn't like it much - no one does, but I got through it, and so have hundreds of other people, many of whom are giving you some great advice and support. You've been told the truth - detox is very difficult - and we'd be remiss if we candy-coated the experience. But another truth is , it does get better, and better, etc.

Music is very healing, it still helps me when i am feeling rotten.

Sara...Me too.  It transports me(:

GG..
I'm heading to bed...I wanted to tell you that at a certain point I had to say to myself
"I surrender..I'll take the suffering and I know it too, shall pass."  It got better after that...It really did.  Mind over matter, baby...You can do this.  I'll check in with you in the morning....Now drink some water and turn on the music!
