I do not know. But I would think maybe weening yourself a little at a time?
Maybe you need someone there that is judgmental bc maybe it will keep you from doing it. The idea of disappointing someone would maybe help keep the goal.
I don't know its just ideas. Good luck

it all depends on how much you are on and how long.if u cold turkey withdrawal will kick in about 12 to 24hrs.it is awful for about 2 days.after that its gets better.if u have the willpower and the means taper down gradually.r u on oxycodone or hydrocodone?how much and how long?

Thank u, I'm on 5mg now after being on 10mg for months, not a year yet. But tomorrow I only gave a half to take. I'm on hydrocodone. This all came about from a wreck with several surgeries to follow. My drs even think I really do need them, as well as myself, but I want off of them.

Don't listen to the idiots that post idiotic crap. I also got addicted because of surgeries and doctors. I had no clue the affect they would have. I had never done any kind of drugs and wouldn't have taken those if it wasn't for actually being in pain. I realized I was addicted when I couldn't go a day without taking them to feel normal. I quit cold turkey and never went back. That's the one thing you have to remember. You cannot go back no matter how much you may want to. Telling yourself that you will just try them one more time and you won't get out of control this time does not work! You shouldn't have that big of a withdrawls, though, if you were only taking that small amount. But, just in case, what you need is Imodium, vitamin d and a very mild sleeping pill. I like this natural kind at Walgreens. It's only $10 for a big bottle. It will only last a day or two and you should be fine. Once you get out of the daze, life is so much better! Good luck to you and let us know how you are doing!=)

It doesn't make you a bad person getting off med you think your addicted to. Even if you have withdrawals and turn mean a few days doesn't mean your a bad person. And if you Want off the med even when the doctors think you need it, all you can do is try without and see for yourself.
Good luck.

Wow apparently some people have never known many people with this problem. I had it and I never once stole from anyone, had my bills paid, etc. Really I was one that you wouldnt expect but I too got them from a doctor for real reasoning. To the man who started this post, one pill a day is nothing. You can get off that easy with little or no withdrawal problems. Good luck to you. To those talking so badly, I hope you never find yourself in this situation.

DO NOT STOP COLD TURKEY. Depending on your tolerance level, it can cause you to begin to seize. I would try to wein yourself off if possible. It's awful. I'll just go ahead and say buy ALOT of tylenol/advil PM! I commend you on trying. Don't listen to what others say, because accomplishing coming off of pain pills is probably harder and takes more will power than anything these others have ever done in their lives. People that downgrade addicts will never understand. First off, you are going to have alot of chills and sweats. Sometimes at the same times. You will be nauseated and sick to your stomach. i lost 10 pounds in a week because i couldn't eat. Your body will ache something awful. and you won't be able to sleep at night. I say tylenol PM because it will help witht he aches and pain and also help you sleep. Make sure you have a heating pad as it will help with the aching as well. make sure you don't have anything planned for the next couple of days as you are not going to want to even leave your house. I had the flu once and trust me ... coming off pain pills was worse than that. it is the worst sickness i have ever had. If you need someone to talk you through it, let me know, i'll post my email. GOOD LUCK! you can do it.

Oh sorry, yes i see now that you are only on 5mg now. From your post i thought that you were extremely addicted. i was on 300mg a day ... not 10 mg. But still good luck to you, the withdrawal symptoms i described in my previous post you probably don't have to worry about since you don't take that much anyways. that was just my experience coming off of 300 mg a day.

Sorry my friend but you are wrong. I didn't use benzos and was hospitalized bc i had 3 seizures from pain medicine withdrawal alone. Ask a doctor.

I agree to a point, if ur not taking a high dose of pain pills then you'll be fine. But those who take 15-20 a day are subject to seiz, its not very common. But it does happen.... Benzo's can definetly cause you to have seizures.

For anyone going through withdrawls, i strongly suggest seeing your dr and asking them for some clonidine. Its not a narcotic, its actually a blood pressure pill, but it will help ease some of the discomfort you get with pain pill withdrawls. I've never been through anything like this personally, but i do know some who have and it's not pretty, its painful and its sad. Sad that something thats suppose to help does more harm then good. Withdrawls are horrifying for the ones going through them and for the ones trying to help them. If you know someone who is asking for help, help them ( just not with more pills ). Asking for help is the first step, there's many many more after that one... Dont judge unless you've gone through this. Help if u can, some people really do want to get clean.
