do you withdrawal off withdrawal meds?

okay so Ive been off fentanyl for a week and percocet for three days. a doc gave me librium and clonidine which are working fantastic, except that I cant work on the librium so i had to take a couple days off. anyway since I started taking the drugs the day after my last fix, I havnt felt a single withdrawal symptom, except diarea.  So my question is are these drug just masking the symptoms and when they're out and I gonna withdrawal again for them?

The librium and clonidine are to help you not feel the symptoms (or feel less of them) of w/d.  They don't delay w/d if that's what you are asking.  The diarrhea is a sign that your body is experiencing w/d.  Be thankful the librium and clonidine are working so well.  You can take immodium for the runs on top of the other two meds.

oh...librium is a weaker benzo..but it is habitforming./.take it as prescribed and for a short time only..the clonidine is not habit forming but if u r on it for a while they say taper down and then quit that as well

yeah my moms administering the librium since it can be abusing. but to answer your question ive been abusing fentanyl patches for about two years. its a horrible drug thats practically heroin. ive almost died twice from ODing so I do consider myself extremely lucky that I found the strength to get off it.
