I have been on Percocets for the last 5 years, up to 8 per day......and take 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?
Percocet have horrible withdrawls. Took them for a couple years and the addiction got so bad and progressed that I turned to OCs. I wish that there was a way to lay them down easily but there isn't. There is a Thomas Recipe in the addiction and substance abuse forum that helped me detox from Methadone which is one of the hardest drugs to come off of. So with alot of faith in yourself and a good support group to talk to about your feelings you can do it. The withdrawls are gonna last for a week or so and thats the hard part. If you have the pills and you began to feel bad that temptation of them being there and not taking them will be the hard part. Good luck and remember, you can do anything you set your mind to. We are here for you curlygirl2! Keep posting. PEACE & LOVE
