Opiate Addiction

Okay! I've been taking hydrocodone for a lil over 7 months now. EVERYDAY! I was just recently married and my hubby knows I take these pills every one in a while but he doesn't know everyday. We both want a baby so I've got to kick this habit without going to a clinic. I've heard of suboxone but I really would rather do this without anyother medications. I'm open to any suggestions to help with the cramping , muscle spasms and restlessness. Please Any suggestions

What  strength hydro, how many a day etc. Need this info to help you out. 7 months on hydro isn't so long....I would consider a taper OR cold turkey if I were you. Let me know the info and we can go from there.

Good news is that hydro is one of the 'easy' ones to withdraw from....I had a NASTY hydro habit (20-25 10/325 mgs a DAY) and tapered a bit and then went CT.....Not so bad at all. First, get yourself in a positive frame of mind....this is the biggest hurdle. Make a list of all the reasons you have for quitting this evil drug.
