Day 1

I started taking hydro after I had my child on april 16th and today is my 1st day without them i started taking them becuase of my back and well loved the high so continued to take them.  it has been about 2 and 1/2 month of taking them today i have no energy and am kind of feeling the hot sweats is this the worst of it becuase I have not been taking them very long also how long does the depression last I have not felt that yet but am sure I will.  I know I did not take them long but I did take a lot of the 10/325 about 8-10 a day I just want to stop this now before it gets out of hand I am hiding it from my husband and have a new baby I am scared about how I am going to take care of my baby during thid period I already dont have the energy to do anything and its only been a day.

Yes,  the short time you used is definitely in your favor.  I was on Fentanyl and percs for 2 years and high doses so mine will definitely be more difficult.  I would think that after 3 days you should be golden but it is different for everyone.

13 days ago I quit Fentanyl ( one nasty beast) and percs that I used for back pain.  Yesterday and today I took a total of 5- 5mg percs.  I used my back pain as an excuse to use.  Nice huh?  Well,  I got rid of the Fentanyl patches and pills, gave them to my Mom, and plan to start fresh tomorrow.  Anxiety and lack of energy here I come:)  I really don't think pills will be anywhere near as beastly as the fentanyl was to come off of- at least I hope.   I guess I will find out tomorrow.  Keep in touch.  Let make sure that we dont slip again.

More than likely not but because of the relief you got from the pill- it will be uncomfortable.  I slipped as well today and will start again tomorrow.  Lets do this together.

well setbacks happens. tell your husband to help you look for pills around the house, you want them all gone! the addiction is difficult to say the least. just stay strong Jen! if you have any hiding spots tell your hubby to go to them and remove pills. just pick yourself up and dust yourself off and try try again

yay!! it makes me happy! I'm very glad you did, you are so strong Jen! very strong! I wish I had that strength 3 years ago. I'm hoping you are doing well and hope you stay clear of these pain pills. Also make sure you tell your OB or doctor about the stumble you had with them< very important otherwise they may prescribe them to you again and if you don't have the strength to say no you will stumble again. If you can't tell them ask your hubby to go with you to your next appointment and have him tell them. doctors know that these pills are problematic they know and many have seen there fair share of addicitions . just remember to know your weakness, knowing your weakness is in fact a strength! if you still feel alone and can't do it anymore, write a journal, write down how you feel, everyday! write in it several times a day it doesn't matter, the more you write the more andore better you feel. If you ever I mean EVER start to be tempted, open your journal and start at page 1 and just read. you will find out how you feel from the start up till the point you stopped an maybe you'll add how you feel again. descibe everything and anything. remembr this is about you! everyones addiction Is unique, no 2 are the same. I wish you an your husband the best of luck and a very happy and strong marrage!

God bless

so glad to hear you told your husband. My husband was VERY supportive of my quitting, and I know that's what helped me get this far :) Proud of you for telling him, that can be the hardest part for many people. Keep going, it will be worth it and hang in there. It will get better. You have length of use on your side, hopefully the initial withdrawal won't be as bad as you're expecting! A good attitude will take you much further than you'd think. ;) Stay strong ♥

Goodness. I started taking the same pills 3 years ago, and I WISH I would have stopped in the time you have just stopped. Luckily, you recognized this addiction early on. I wish I had did the same. STOP WHILE YOU CAN! It WILL get worse. it will require more and more pills in due time, believe me, you don't want that to happen. Im glad you have a doc that cares enough about you, that he/she will help you taper. You will feel bad the first 3 days. But dont let these pills control you. Your WD's wont last long. Its sooo worth it. Peace!

Jen~ It could get worse,especially the low energy.  Keep going to work and see how you do. Take drinks with you,etc..  Sometimes work is a good distraction!!

if you trust him then tell him. write it in a letter what's going on tell him excattly what you told us! your scred this is goin to get out of control, you know this is a weakness. you need some help getting off of these from your delivery. the addicit mind tells you your alone , you are very very strong to post this in such a short time of using them. all you can be is honest to yourself, if you can't be honest with yourself your only fooling yourself. when someone says they are scared to tell there partner it worries me. because the first thing that goes through my mind is they are scared of the worst they fear sowething bad may happen, when in fact it doesn't. dot let fear rule over you! your strong to tell us and YOURSELF you are seeing a problem. most of use hide in it and fear it for years. tell your husband about what your seeing in yourself. tell him your are heading down a road you very much don't want to go! he will understand catching it now is better then 4 yets later and it blows out of control. these pain pills are sneaky, they take your mind and body. I'm not tring to say you should diffinately tell your hubby, what I'm saying is no one can do this alone. when we are in trouble we seek out help or try to in different ways. just be glad you caught this so fast!! but to answer your request wd's can last 4-5 days, you can expect to have a lack of engery, sleeplessness, nausea, runs, aches and pains sometimes down to the bone, esp. when you try to rest. uncomfortable feeling durin the day headaches, overall flu symptoms runny nose watery eyes lack of appatite , being that you only been taking them for a few months it may pass quickly , but you will be tempted alot which is why you should tell your husband. support should never be ignored or pushed aside. but rather embrassed.

God bless and good luck.

Hi~  I would,also,advise telling your husband. Get rid of any pills in the house. Try to set
up some support to help with the baby.  It may not be too bad but you just won't feel well.
You'll need some things:
Immodium
Hylands Restful Legs
vitamins   B6 B12 C mag/cal potassium
gatorade
juices
soups
Epsom salts to pour in hot bath

Get the laundry done
Clean sheets on your bed
Lots of towels

Post with any questions~
