Not forever! It will pass. I understand you used the Percs first and then switched to the Norcos for 2 weeks...been clean since yesterday. If you were down to 3 Norcos a day for 2 weeks, you have already gotten down to a relatively low dose. I had a buddy who took 15-20 Norcos a day and when he finally detoxed, he felt a lot better after the 4th day. Just hang in there. Tomorrow is day 3...it gets better.
Hi and welcome.
Everyone is different. It can depend on how long you were using, how much, age etc.
Most find that the bad part lasts 3-5 days. It's important to stay hydrated.
Scroll down and read the Thomas Recipe and the Amino Acid Protocol at the very bottom right of this page. There are some useful things you can take to help ease withdrawal symptoms.
Are your legs restless or is it just pain? Did you have problems with your legs before?
congratulations on taking the initiative to stop. i've withdrew more times than id like to admit and for me id say the pain begins to get better by the 4th day. take hot bathes. stay hydrated lots of water and gatorade. bananas r supposed to help RLS. you can take ibuprofen or tylenol to help with the pain. if you can get a benzo that should help with insomnia. if you cant 5-htp or melatonin can also help with sleep issues. if you can get to a pool light swimming will help circulate the blood in your legs. the pain will go away. just stick it out. itll be over before you know it. hang in there.
yea sleep will be tough coming for a while but it does come back....melatonin finally worked for me after the first week....but try not to fight it....just stay up and watch tv or youtube, etc....you're doing great so hang in there! you will be feeling better soon!
