Sounds like you've traveled a hard road. Hang in there. Lots of great people on this forum.
hello and welcome...
i'm just a wee bit curious. are you wanting to come off the pain pills? i do not fully understand your post.
The people are so supportive and compassionate on here...hopefully you would not feel like you were 'accused' of anything.. Perhaps that was just the phrase you used.
I am often surprised at the doctors who prescribe an opiate to be taken with methadone, an opiate blocker.
Sorry to hear about your room mate, that is a huge amount of support to lose. This forum is a huge amount to gain. The benefit from everyone here along with a change in life and a good vitamin regime and you can beat this.
Tomorrow is my last day at the methadone clinic...we have been anticipating this day for quiet some day. Thus far we have been able to combat all wd. The worst lies ahead, but so does the best. That holds true for all of us. Hang in there and post often!
Please look at my journal...it could help you.
Does the doctor who perscribed you percocet know that your taking Methadone?
Are you taking Methadone to get off the narcotic pain pills?
Taking narcotics for you is very dangerous my friend your an addict. Addicts don't
take there meds like perscribed they binge them.
Your post is a little scary but as Liz Lou can't figure out because she is not an addict
is that your simply acting as one.
Be careful mixing Methadone with narcotics many people overdose or go into Respiratory failure and quit breathing most of the time in their sleep.
In the office I work in where Methadone is given and one thing we worry about is when people mix with Xanax. Across the state where I live so many over doses it is a very sad state of affairs.
I only hope that our government will soon realize that we need federal funds for more drug education and also Detox and inpatient rehabs for desperate drug addicts with no insurance and no funds to get into treatment.
I went in front of Congress in my state last Thursday to put a face on recovery along with a gentleman who was asking for more money. I only hope that my testimony that it is possible to get to recovery for drug addicts and once again become postive citizens again and that they can contribute in society again if just given the chance!
my comment above has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that i am not an addict. my question comes from "reading" his post...his journal...and his post on the addiction social community forum.
