I see that you have been on this site for a long time now. I am so sorry for all that you have been going through. Sounds tough.
That is what is so sad about those short acting opiates, they kick you into w/ds in just a few hours if you do not feed the Brain & Body chemistry, that has been altered by these type of pills. I can not believe I am going to say this, but I just watched my Hub get off his oxys in a lil over a week without going through the w/ds that I have seen him go through each month. He used a ONE 2mg Subutex and it worked great. I have been studying Addiction for over 4 yrs now and I was so shocked to see how this worked for him. You have to get off these quickly so you do not depend on them or go through w/ds either. Now dealing with the pain in a more natural way. However, if you CAN taper slow and easy off these, then that is a Big Plus. What ever route you take, make sure you drink tons of water and keep flushing the system. Good eating habits and taking some good vit/min is real important at this time. Get some electrolytes going right away.
Let us know how you are doing?? I wish you the best.
PS. I have over 4yrs off the Methadone that got prescribed for pain for over 12yrs, before that was the short acting ones. YOU can do this!!!!!
God be with...
