I think your taper was way too fast......I think the goal is to go down 10% every 10 days if u taper. I tapered from OpanaER--150mg to 40 mg(it is a super strong opiate). Then started struggling hard so I went to an inpatient hospital
For the rest of my detox. There is also the use of Suboxone, but NEVER allow yourself
More than 3 weeks on it bc it is more addictive than any opiate (when used longer than 3 weeks)
