Does anyone have advice on how to decrease the withdrawal symptoms when coming off of oxycontin/roxycodone?
Hello. My name's Kacey. I just recently decided to stop taking roxy and oxycontin. I'm young, only 20. In high school I expiramented with all sorts of things but in the end, I only kept smoking cigs, drinking, and smoking pot...until recently. I moved back to Florida and I got this new job, telemarketing (haha), started meeting people...and shortly thereafter...I was offered a "roxy". I had no idea what it was, just a pain pill was all I knew. Not long afterwards, I started taking them regularly. I am at a point where I take between 1 and a half - 3 roxys (30mg) or take an oxy (80mg), and half of a roxy(30mg) every day...give or take one or so. I also dabble with other pills occasionally such as xanax, valium, percoset, etc... The worst part is, I snort them. I've recently ruined, or damn near came close to ruining, a lot of relationships with family and friends b/c of my drug addiction. I am getting methadone to help with the withdrawls, but I was wondering if anyone had advice on how to stop the restless leg feeling at night and/or the insomnia. The muscle and back pain isn't fun to deal with either. I think I am going to try at least a few of these things in this recipe I saw on a previous post to help reduce the severity of the withdrawals, taking vitamins, hot baths, etc... If anyone could let me know anything at all, it would be much appreciated. I am willing to try to do anything to make things right with my family again, and to kick my roxy habbit. Thanks so much. -kcjones-

Why are you getting methadone?  have you read the peoples posts who are trying to get off of that drug?  I will let others with more experience post of that subject as i have never taken it but i do know wds are he!! from it....being on the forum for 4 months now...i am scared to death of it....there is a great tapering article in the health pages and number one would be to quit snorting it pronto...dont dig yourself into a deeper hole than you are in by trying to avoid discomfort..be careful...exercise is great when u can make yourself do it to get the endorphins going...get some movies, books, and post...stay busy and good luck to u...lots of support here

Have you just recetly started taking the methadone?  Do you go to a methadone clinic?  If so, that is a very good way to get off of the pills in my opinion.  The restless legs and insomnia should subside once you are on the methadone for awhile.  From what I have read a successful treatment with methadone will take approximately 1 yr.  However, (and again this is from what I have read and my experiences with my husband) if you can complete the program the way it is meant to be completed then you will have a very high success rate of staying clean.  Good Luck and take each day as it comes...it's not an easy road, but one well worth it.
