I've been prescribed 10/325 hydrocodone 2x's a day for extreme pain in my knee. I've been taking them for close to a year, and sometimes have taken 4 or 5 in a day, thus running out of my prescription too soon. That's the case now, I cant get a refill for another 9 days, and the anxiety I feel makes me realize I'm addicted to them. Yes, the withdrawal symptoms have started - chills, sweating, can't sleep. The last pill I took was 48 hours ago.
Any advice on how to cope? I don't have any insurance, so I need to detox at home. I live alone, with adult children living nearby. Thanks!
