hi I'm on the start of day 4 without vicodin . I also did the taper I tapered for about 2 week. could of done it longer but I messe up here & there. I had myself woried sick about wd to be honest sicker than I'm now In fact I'm going to work today . I cry & am moody Imodium Is my best friend lol & I do have to say I take a low dose xanax at night to sleep but today is it for that I'll be going to benadyl tonight. Yesterday II made a homemade apple pie , Draged the pasta maker out made homemade pasta & sauce. oh I had my moments but. I don't mean to hj. your post but I'm just saying It not nearly as bad as I thought It was going to be. I was taking 10 to 12 a day somedays ( most days) but the feeling i have now that I'm doing this second by second I'm doing this. It a great feeling. I wish you all the best stay strong you can do it
Wow my boyfriend keeps telling me the same thing. He says I am so obsessed with the WD that I am going to make it worse than it is. Guess he is right. Thank you!
Carol~ No,you wouldn't have had any kind of withdrawal going to Percocet from Vicodin. Whatever occured was unrelated. Percocet is stronger than Vicodin.
Try not to over think this. It will be what it is...it won't be the worst thing you'll go through. Just not pleasant. It's truly like having the flu...
an opiate is an opiate is an opiate!!! You should not feel any WD.
Thank you for the response. I am not going to use the percocet again, my planned stop date is in 2 weeks on the 22nd. I am doing a taper right now. I was just wondering about the feelings I had when I ran out and used the percocets. Was that a type of withdrawl?
It only makes sense if you want to stay in active addiction.. easier too just stop then you do not up your anti in tolerance. all opiates bind the bowel's the more you take the stronger the drug the worse it is. If you did not take equal to what you were taking prior then you were in light wd more then likely. just think if you quit you would not have these worries. take care of yourself ok.. lesa
the percocet are stronger, more addictive and result in worse withdrawals. the difference is vicodin are hydrocodone and percocet are oxycodone... same stuff as in the 'oxy's' that you probably have heard about... only difference is the strength. One thing you need to realize is that each time you use the stronger stuff to get you thru till you get your doc which is the weaker of the two you are moving your tolerance along so that you need more of it to get to your level. eventually the hydros wont do it anymore and then you move on to the stronger stuff. the more often you replace with the oxycodone the faster you speed your tolerance up.... get off them now because it will NEVER be easier to kick this than right now.
