HI there. I am on day 5 also. CONGRATS! I still feel a bit shakey, and fatigued, but SO much better than the first 4 days. Like you, I too am afraid that this is a false feeling. Am I going to crash and feel like crap later today, or tomorrow? I don't know, but at the moment I DO have enough energy to go outside for a short walk, so that's what I&#x...
Hi everyone. Today is my 4th day of WD from high doses of oxy. I have been taking suboxone, but the last time I quit opiates -2 years ago -I also used Suboxone, and I had bad suboxone withdrawls about 3 days after my last dose. So, I don't know if I should take anymore sub, or not. My first day I took 1 and 1/4 pills, the second day 1 pill, and yesterda...

I am so proud of you! I am on day 4 of my with drawls. I used suboxone for the first 3 days. I guess it helped a little. Not as much as I thought it would, though. I keep telling myself that "this too shall pass". Just hang in there and tell yourself that you have the flu, but it will get better. So many of the AA quotes come to mind. "Take it...

Hi Orabel, I remember the first time I quit taking my percs and oxys. I ran out of them and wasn't due for a refil for 3 days. About 12 hours after taking my last pill, I started to feel REALLY sick. I was truly convinced I had the flu.Day 3 with no pills and I was still VERY sick. Needless to say, about an hour after taking 30 mg oxy, I started to feel...

Thank you so much for the words of encouragement and for the brutal honesty of the situation. I am on day 4 of suboxone treatment. HORRIBLE! I remember it being so much easier the last time I quit. At least today I am out of bed and I feel like I have a tiny bit of strength. What is your story? How long have you been clean and how did you get there?

I've been on opiates for 14 years (I was in a bad motorcylcle accident), but the last 4 years have been a living hell. Two years ago I quit taking oxy's, with the help of suboxone. It was a very rough 10 days, but I did it. The thing I hadn't counted on was the amount of pain I would dealing with, every minute of every day, once the opiates wer...
