Want off of Opana

I have been taking 15-100mg of opana for a little over a yr.  My 30 day supply lasts maybe 15-20 days every month then I take oxycodone to keep withdrawals away.  I'm a 38 yr old type 2 diabetic with high blood pressure, PTSD, major depression, anxiety disorder and insomnia.  I am DESPERATE to get clean from these opiates.  My worry is the detox.  I wanna go it at home, but is it safe to try on my own or should I ask doc for a transition med?  I can't afford suboxone and wen i tried methadone it made me suicidal.  I'm super worried about going into ketoacidosis wen I'm unable to eat.  How would u recommend I go about getting clean?  Any advice is greatly appreciated.  I cannot keep putting my family through this nightmare.  Thanks.

You should definitely do it under medical supervision. Maybe due to your history you doctor can treat you  in a hospital where then can help you through your symptoms with IV medications in a supervised environment. Please discuss with your doctor your options before you try anything on your own.
I wish you all the best.
