I really don't know what to expect so, if any of you can help I will appreciate the help,,thanks again!
Hi Friend, I am so sorry you are going through all this!! So you are hot and cold, and seriously sleep deprived! It is just awful! In my fantasies I am able to taper down so gradually that I don't have to go through that! But, people mention the jumping off point, and I know I will know when I am there. To me, I am getting low, after 3 months of very intense tapering! I was on 40 mg Opana ER 3 X day (plus three 10 mg PRNS a day max) to 10 mg Opana ER plus a tapering dose of a 5 mg short-acting Opana (plus up to two 5 mg PRNs a day max). I go to a noon meeting in Duluth. You will be able to go to meetings as soon as you can get yourself there (as I am sure you know). Let me know if you haven't ever done this before. It will be SO GOOD for you, as it is for me! Big Hug, Marie
