The withdrawal symptoms are going to depend on a bunch of factors like age, amount of use, drug of choice, and how long you have used. General health also plays a part in this. So, yes everyone is different. What do you mean by 'do regular meds make wd worse or better?' ? Are you asking if you are taking the opiates on a regular basis does that increase the length of detox symptoms?

well i take zoloft some seizuree meds and blood pressure stuff, so i've been using on /off for maybe a year well some of it was script cause of radiation and breakin my foot and kidney stones...so does wds affect the other meds?make them weaker or stronger,or maybe help a little? so oh yeah,percoset 5mil or 7mil a couple of times a day it's been on and off but i've actually got some from a friend so it raised a red flag for me and i've taken 3 pills today..yeah it hurrts i have pain but i wanted some.so i'm worried

It might especially with your blood pressure med. You definitely need to be upfront with your doctor. Detoxing usually raises your blood pressure quite a bit, so you may need an increase in your blood pressure med for a little bit. If you are really wanting to do this, it is so important to be 100% honest and cut all of your sources for pills. That means changing your playground. You may have to distance yourself from friends who use. You can do this and you are in the right place to get support, encouragement, and info. We will be here for you. Please keep posting.

Good deal! It sounds like you have everything ready to go. That's the best thing you can do for yourself right now is to set up a good support system. And you aren't being dramatic. This is a very hard thing to go through. Keep exercising, it will help you to heal more quickly and it also helps with the sleep and anxiety part of detox. Just keep fighting and you will get through this!

thank you! i'm trying but i hate that i took some today. i do have a plan i'm just scared! i don't want this to keep going!foot or no foot.

Try to keep in mind that your pain will more than likely be better after you are off of the pills for awhile than it was on them. It will be worse initially when you quit, but get better and better the more time you put between you and the pills. Do you have any left? If so, and you are serious about this, I would flush those suckers!
