I am a 37 year old mom of three. Just finished my first level of EMT training. I was put on fentanyl patches and actiq(oral fentanly)for chronic kidney pain due to kidney disease. With the help of Medhelp I am kicking this addiction in the butt!!!! Learning that life ca
[More]n change for the better and that life is what you make it, you just have to put in the hard work!!!!
"I am not a doctor, but my opinion is..DON'T DO IT!!!! I detoxed off of fentanyl cold turkey and it sucked. I would not wish that on my worst enemy. Please think very hard about this decision....and el_em_en_oh is right, you will be back ..."
I havent started to WD yet. I know I need to. Picked up a new rx today. Last one. If I was smart I would use it to WD. but the past has shown me that doesnt work that way. Its like theres 2 people and I always loss. Thanks for the note
