w/d frm morpine&lortab in less than 10 days

hi, i am a female with fibromyalgia chronic pain & fatigue and have been pain drugs for roughly a year and a half, and due to difficulty in finding proper help to manage my pain meds i called and have been accepted into one of the top centers for treatment of fibromyalgia and chrnic fatuge, though there web info and a couple of calls to inquire about treatment, they did tell me i have to stop EVERY DRUG 24 HOURS PRIOR TO FIRST APPT, AND DUE TO CONFIDENTIALITY, WILL NOT TELL ME IF I HAVE TO BE DETOXED PRIOR, OR IF AFTER/DURING THE FIRST APPT THEY WILL TAYLOR A PROGRAM DESIGNED JUST FOR ME, I DONT KNOW IT THAT INCLUDES TAYLORING IT AROUND MEDICATIONS YOU ARE ALREADY ON?? AND DUE TO APPT BEING SO CLOSE ON THE 17TH OF THIS MONTH, I AM ASKING IF ANYONE CAN PROVIDE ANY INFORMATION ABOUT DETOXING FROM THE TWO DRUGS MYSELF NOW BEFORE I GO TO THIS CENTER. ANY INFORMATION THAT CAN BE PROVIDED, TO ME ABOUT WHERE I COULD FIGURE OUT HOW TO DETOX MYSELF?? IS THERE A WEBSITE SOMEONE COULD GIVE ME INFORMATION TO FIND THAT WEBSITE, OR ANY AND ALL SUGGESTIONS WOULD BE GREAT, HELPFUL AND APPRECIATED. THANK YOU

I think you need to contact the center and get some more information.  You can detox going CT...but chances of you feeling perfect in 10 days are slim, to be honest.  You'll feel BETTER than the first initial 5+ days...but still pretty bad...especially with both narcotics.  It also depends on how much you are using daily.

This is a great forum...full of people who can guide you, give you some ideas on things you can do to make the w/d's a little more tolerable.

Best of luck...I hope you find success at the center.

Well you can taper down or you can CT ..... Honestly it does not matter and this point whether you are addicted or dependant sometimes people get to focused on labels. Many of us have cronic pain .How much have you been taking a day and for how long?
How long do they want you off of you meds before your appt? You can do this best thing to do is find out what will be easiest for you.
