Addicted to Roxy 30's

Me and my husband are both addicted to Roxy's. We both deal with withdrawls differently. I cry and scream and just plain go nuts  want to kill myself and anybody that gets in my way. I am waiting to get in a program to get off them. I am sick of not knowing who I am anymore and just being a mean person when I am on the pills. I want my life back!! What are your withdrawls like? He says it is all in my head and blah blah blah. I try to deal with it other ways but I can't

Me, too!  What an awful withdrawal that is.  I did it once cold turkey and didn't sleep for 13 days and was chained to the bathroom if you know what I mean.  The 2nd time I did the suboxone route.  Much better and successful.  I tapered off suboxone in a 6 week period no problem.  If you can't get in a treatment center then maybe you should consider suboxone.  That won't affect your ingrained drug seeking behavior (which is hard to deal with), but it will relieve the withdrawal symptoms.  You can have your life back.  I have mine, but it's a process.

OMG- I'm the same way.  I thought I was going to kill my two innocent small children this a.m.  I scared myself with my rage.  I yelled but didn't do anything horrible besides that, like my imagination told me to do.  I am in w/d day one and going to get Suboxone at 2:30pm today.  I made it to work - I don't know how - probably with just the thought that in a few hours I will hopefully get relief.  I am already planning on getting there an hour early because I can't stand this feeling.  I am crawling out of my skin.  I took Clonidine and Nyquil last night to sleep and my legs were all over the place, jerking and moving, like I had epilepsy - all night.  And I took a 1/2 of a v at midnight to ease it, but it didn't help.  I took another 1/2 at 7am and I am still nuts.  I can't wait for recovery from this hell.  So, basically you are not alone.  My "dealer"/"friend" is on pain management and when she runs out of pills early, all she does is hurt from her back pain.  She doesn't get weird like we do at all.  I don't get it.  How is it that some people are cursed with this and others aren't?  I have been struggling with why I am the chosen one to get this God awful disease of addiction.  I dropped my kids off at daycare and told them mommy will be better tonite.  I wanted to kill my husband when he got up early for work this a.m. and was being a little noisy getting dressed.  I feel like a horrible person.  I want my easy-going happy disposition back.  I know I am putting all of my eggs in one basket with Suboxone but I don't have any other options.  This is a secret from everyone except my mom and my "dealer".  I can't talk to anyone else.  That's why I am on this forum all day instead of working.  I can't focus or concentrate.  I am shaky, have major stomach problems, can't smile, am freezing, then hot, my fingers don't even want to work to type right now.  It's awful.  It's hell.  Keep writing.  I'm reading!

Suboxone will take away your cravings.  It's like a magic drug.  Doesn't make you feel high (which is the down side), but it does work in terms of the cravings.  I had to ask myself if I really wanted to quit.  I loved breaking up 4 roxi's and snorting them.  The glow and the energy were just great.  However, I became a very selfish, slf-indulgent person who didn't care about anything or anyone else.  My wife left.  My adult children don't know what to say to me.  I messed up my life in a big way.  Getting off the roxis was really the easy part.  Staying away from all drugs is more difficult.  I've got to learn to be sober and take life on life's terms.  Otherwise, my life will remain a train wreck.  Having so much alone time is very dangerous for me.  Being alone is like a bad neighborhood.

I actually beg to differ LOL. I got ahold of some suboxone a few days ago and I got a buzz off of it? Weird. Anyways to my main reason for this message. Starting this Thurs yours truly will be on Suboxone and off the damn pills! After many many months of getting the run around (must have pissed somebody off at the place that does the program) I am finally in and can get my life back and my mind! Yay I will be the old me again Dont know if some ppl will think that is a good thing LOL. 24+ hrs of detox down over 24 more to go!

I really think the mind plays a big part in withdrawals. I recently withdrew from fentanyl patches and dilaudid and somehow I didnt even hardly get withdrawals, despite being opiate dependent for several years now as well as having a massive tolerance and using large amounts of only the strongest pills I could find (nothing weaker than hydrocodone and id only buy that if nothing else was around). When I withdrew from oxy last year it was sooooo much worse.

I think if I wasnt such a seasoned drug user and educated on how to get high then I might not have even noticed that I was sick or withdrawing. I just got a little bit of leg aches on day 1 and thats about it. I dont know how this happened but im just thankful it did. I was expecting to get hit with the nastiest withdrawals of my life because of the fentanyl, I had been wearing 2x 100mcg patches every 2 days along with 8mg or so dilaudid a day.

Just my 2 cents.

The mind is a wonderful yet horrible thing at the same time. My mind tricked me into thinking all kinds of stuff was the truth when it was a lie. Then it taught me to be the person that can manipulate her way around to get out of a Dr what she thinks she needs. I did start on Hydro's and kick myself for getting off them and on the Roxy's. But I had to get the highest high I could get cause that is what i am in it for to begin with. I have never failed from trying to get clean cause I have never been able to admit to anybody especially myself that I was an Addict. So really 2 days ago when I made the choice to come 100% clean without holding anything back and letting the ppl that are here to catch me when I fall know just how many lies I told in order to keep it a secret that was gonna be out of the bag soon enough. The patches scare the hell out of me. Please Please be careful with the patch!!!!!

Norco is 10/325 hydrocodone roxy or roxy is the same as oxycontin it is just a 15 or 30 mg oxycodone pill the diff in roxy and oxys r the roxy are imidiate release so u get the whole 30 mg of oxycodone all at once while an oxycontin is the same drug oxycodone but if used correctly just swallowed not crushed snorted or injected the oxy has a time release layer so you do not get the full dose of oxy at one time so roxy is imediate release and oxy is time release. Sorry forbthe spelling I am typin on my phone

I AM GOING THROUGH THE SAME AS YOU JEN 2331. WELL ACTUALLY I WAS GOING THROUGH IT. I SLIPPED. I WENT TO THE DR LAST SAT GOT THE SUBOXONE WAS ALL READY TO GET BACK TO THE OLD ME. THE ROXYS WORE OFF I TOOK THE SUBOXONE AND THE WITHDRAWALS STARTED... IT WAS FREAKIN HORRIBLE. I HAVE GONE THROUGH WOTHDRAWALS BEFORE. I TOOK SUBUTEX FOR ALMOST A YEAR BUT I WAS ALLERGIC TO IT. LONG STORY BUT I NEVER FELT THIS HORRIBLE ON SUBUTEX. I MEAN I HAD ALL THE SYMTOMS (symptoms) U HAD SWEATING TO A POINT WHERE I CHANGED MY CLOTHES 10 TIMES THROUGH OUT THE NIGHT. ALL OF THIS WHILE TAKING CARE OF MY 6 YR OLD SON BC NONE OF MY FAMILY KNOWS I AM GOING THROUGH THIS. BUT 3 DAYS LATER I SLIPPED AND CALLED THE DEALER. I AM GOING BACK TO THE DR TOMORROW TO SEE WHAT ELSE I CAN GET. I GOTTA GET OFF OF THIS CRAP. ITS HORRIBLE. IT CONSUMS YOUR WHOLE LIFE. I JUST THINK ABOUT WHENI CAN GET MORE OR HOW I CAN GET MONEY TO GET MORE OR WHO HAS MORE..... I WANNA HELP MYSELF. DOES NAYONE HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS AS TO WHY THE SUBOXONE ISNT HELPING ME? OR WHAT ELSE I CAN TRY TO HELP WITH THE WITHRAWAL SYMPTOMS? ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO FEEL FINE WHILE ON SUBOXONE OR DO YOU JUST FEEL ALITTLE BETTER? I WAS EXPECTING TO TAKE IT AND BE THE OLD ME AGAIN BUT I GUESS NOT.....ONE MORE QUESTION DOES ANYONE KNOW IF HEALH INSURANCE PAYS FOR REHAB? LIKE  APLACE YOU STAY AT FOR 90 DAYS OR SO?

Sounds to me as though you are going through hell right now!   Hang in there...this is going to be a bumpy ride.  Your muscles are going to feel like they are on fire, mine felt as though they were rubbing bone on bone.  I had morbid thought, night sweats, leg cramps...
I went to detox and got help coming down.  However, the first 24 hrs before the doc came in were hell on earth.  I would take labor any day.  With Suboxone, you can not take them the same day you took an opiate.  You will go through worse withdrawal that way.  You should be without anything for 24-36 hrs before taking.  When I would be out of crack, I would become very very angry and mean to everyone.  I did not even recognize the addict I saw staring back at me.  I went after my daughter, pulled her hair for "snitching" on me to her Dad.  Then he called the police.  I could hear them coming so I ran.  I came back home, he would not let me out of the house.  So.....I took a pick axe to the back door window, broke it, put my arm through it.  I was arrested only because I had a traffic warrent.  But the cops added a domestic battery to it.  3 days in jail, divorce papers, can come home restraining order etc.  All because I was angry.  Try to walk away.  Walking is good for you anyway.

I never started taking roxy intel I move to a diffferent place and then i wanted to try something new instead of smoking weed and drinking the bad part about it was that I was against puttting things into my noes but i was not new at it but I dislike it but when i got my hands on roxy 30 then roxy 15 my life has change for the worst i love the high but i hate what it started to do with my life and that was destroy it to the point where i lost everything i had my job my freinds my hobbies and i started to pawn things off also just to get a fix on roxy now i realize what it has done to my life and now i am searching for help to get off them i have never been through withdraws or anything like that intel now there are times when i am crying and when i feel like i dont want to be bother with and that i have two parts of me and one is a good side and the other is the side who dont care about no body or anything and just want to get high i want and need some help before my life get to the point of no return

What you just described is a drug addict. I didn't care about anybody or anything if it didn't involve a pill. Pills were all I thought about all I talked about and damn sure all I cared about. I too lost a lot of friends, family, personal belongings and I  was very lucky I didn't lose my life too.You took the first step by admitting you had a problem. For me and many addicts that is the hardest part. I met with my Dr and told him I was an addict and I needed serious help. I started Suboxone a few months later. Suboxone was pretty much my only option cause I knew I was not mentally ready to quit cold turkey and methadone was not something I wanted to take. I was on Sub's for 8 months and have now been off them for 175 days! I wish you the best of luck!
