Tonsillectomy & Percocet Withdrawal
Hi-
I'm on day 15 of recovery from a tonsillectomy. I "weaned off" percocet as follows: after 12 days of 2 tsp every 4 hours, 1 day 1 tsp every 4 hours, 1 day 1 tsp every 6 hours, 1/2 day 1/2 tsp every 6 hours. I'm feeling not so well--did I not wean off slow enough? What can I do now?

I'm also still very weak, probably from the half month of fitful sleep and no solid food. Trying my best to sleep a lot, eat well.

You could have tapered it a bit more gently, going to 1/4 teaspoon every 8 hours, then 12 hours then only at night for a few nights.
But if you are already off do not start again. It will get better, just give it a few more days. You were not on it long enough for severe dependence yet. Just keep active during the day, eat healthy and stay hydrated. Make sure you are taking a good multivitamin as well.
Good luck to you.
