Oh wow!! That is a SCARY dose seeing it broke down like that..

Please keep us updated about what you decide..
Welcome to the forum~
I'm a former hydro user myself....at my worst, I was up to 30/pills a day. I was killing myself.....and I knew it. You said you take 10-12 (10mg) hydros AT ONE TIME 4x a day??? If you are taking the 10/500 hydros....and you take 12 at a time 4x a day that's 48 pills a day, right? You are getting 480 mg of hydro and 24,000 mg of acetaminophen!!!!!
It's no wonder your stomach hurts, your side hurts and your urine is the color of rust!!!! You are destroying your liver.....seriously....it's time to ASK FOR HELP. You would be a good candidate for a suboxone recovery program with monitoring, counseling and aftercare.
PLEASE know that YOU ARE WORTH IT and ask for some help.
Hi there- It's hard for us to tell you what the Methadone will do for you. The thing is...you will eventually go through withdrawal from one or the other...
In addition to THAT, who knows how much methadone you need to take....
You take an enormous amount of Hydrocodone so I really think your best bet is to get with a doctor. Dosing yourself with methadone or SUBOXONE is dangerous with that high of a dosage.
We all have extenuating circumstances, believe me, and there is just no quick fix. You could taper yourself but it takes time and most of us can't taper; it's not in our make up!
You are a good candidate for SUBOXONE treatment. It's an entire program of recovery, monitored by a physician. If I were you, I'd look into it. Other than that, your only other option is in patient detox.
So that's what I think my friend. There are a few guys on the forum who have better experience with the two drugs and they'll be along.
One other thing...you say you have back pain. Do you know why? You might want to get that evaluated so you can look at other treatment options and then look into Pain Management.
Good luck to you-
I don't know the answer but HANG IN THERE!!! Someone will be along that does..
I am bumping this up because it got overlooked. I can't answer your questions but am hoping others can....
