Get off the Pills? Any suggestions would be helpful!
Good Morning: (I reposted this message from my one in September, no responses)
I have been on Percocets for the last 5 years, up to 8 per day......and take 20 mg oxycontin at night.......These are prescribed medications and I told my doctor I wanted to start reducing them and he just told me to cut the daytime percocets in half....I wasnt really impressed.....I guess he truly doesnt understand that my body now has built up a resistance to them and I crave higher dosages......I hear of so many people that actually get liver problems, etc. so I truly want to find something better to take and get off them once for all......
Any suggestions for reducing to make withdrawal successful?
