Yes I agree there are beautiful and brighter days ahead of you my friend. You'll see. Life is good.
how is it going with your withdrawal? you should have weened down to a lower dose before u quit cold turkey. don't take suboxone or anything like that u don't need it and u will b back were u started trust me. if u got any ?s feel free to ask I was in that game for 20 years and its gonna cost me a liver. ive been clean for 3 years now .
I should have read the whole article first u cant wean off them. your dr. should have a plan off care to get off them proper but they just take them away n leave the person filling horrible and that's when they go to streets looking for anything. I guess atleast u got a month but u are gonna feel what is really hurting in your body, joints proabably gonna ache causing rls. gonna have lack of appetite eyes water or sneezing a lot cold sweats hot and cold like flu sypmtons and anxiety. everyone is different so eating healthy will help even if u have to force it and motrin for the aches.
I just wrote a whole book and it disappeared. What the heck. LOL
You could gave cold like symptoms, sneezing, stuffed up nose, sore throat. Possible bodyaches, headache, nausea, diarrhea. Decreased appetite, trouble sleeping, restless legs.
Those are all possible signs of withdrawal. Do you have your age in your favor 32. You are active, you are on a low dose.
Try not to get too anxious about stopping because many times the fear and the anxiety is worse than the actual detox.
Do you feel you were just dependent on them? If you don't take them to get cravings?
The first few days in the week or two after you stop it's very important to stay hydrated. Especially if you're going to have stomach issues you need to replenish what you're losing. We can take Imodium for that also. And take allergy medications for the sneezing.
What day are you going to stop?
Hey how are you doing?
Thats Great your doc gave you clonidine.
The cymbalta will also help.
How are you doing today? Personally I would throw away any leftover meds you have. Taking it here and ther will hurt your detox.. You can do this. It’s gonna suck for a little while but your gonna pull through. I wish you the best
20 -30 mg. is really a low dose! You shouldn't have any WD's except for being really irritable and CRABBY....like I am right now! I have chronic pain and don't re-up for 2 weeks! If you can get some clonipin or the like, that'll help. For me, the "jimmy-legs" and inability to sleep are the worst!
I still experience my hands feeling hot from the anxiety. And a little uneasiness in my upper arms and chest. Has anyone experienced this before with anxiety? Especially the hands/palms feeling warm and hot and look red?
Several different doctors have all said this is anxiety manifesting into physical symptoms. I do get emotional too from time to time, but not as frequently. I'm currently on Cymbalta 60MG for the past 6+ weeks and Zoloft 100MG for 2 weeks now.
Thank you to anyone who responds!
hey bro how did your quitting oxy go? I cant believe u did cold turkey on 20 to 30mg couple times a day or maybe it was once a day. I was just c ing how u were. I saw your homepage and that your in drug addiction group. I hope that was to get advice on going cold turkey. If u are still on here let me no how you are doing. Jamhead out " I am mine"
You have made a good choice Brother, I will be praying for you and your family. The good news is that the dose you listed is not an extremely high dose and from what you have described you are not abusing it. You may experience some discomfort for the first week such as excessive sweating, chills, trouble sleeping, restless legs and maybe even some mild irritability. If Cold turkey is too difficult for you, I would suggest meeting with your primary care physician and coming up with a taper schedule to safely get you off of the Oxy with minimal if any discomfort. My Mother has Lupus as well so I sympathize with your family. Stay strong and keep your eyes fixed on your family and the love you have for them.
Message me anytime.
Have a Blessed Day,
