used clonidine or gabapentin to go cold turkey off opiods?

Hi everyone!!! I am currently taking 60-65mg Norco and want to go off, maybe cold turkey. Considering my options. I am wanting to hear about experience going cold turkey using these meds and any advice you may have. Thank You :)

No one responded to you.  I'm sure sorry about that.  Hopefully more will. It can be a very supportive group.  You posted this a couple of weeks ago.  Update me with where things are at now.  Cold turkey hurts. Is there any way you can be supervised?  Clonidine is used to help suppress withdrawal from opiates. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/6907020/
