[QUOTE=Percokitty]Hi,
I detoxed from both oxycontin and vicodin 5 years ago. It was god awful - altho I was sleeping/sweating through most of it. I recently detoxed from vicodin -- and honestly, it wasn't as bad as I remember 5 years ago !!!

They both bind to the same receptor sites in the brain, so they are both equally difficult to withdraw from depending upon dose/length of time of use, etc.

I'M HELPING MY FIANCE WITH VICODIN WITHDRAWAL, HE HAS BEEN ABUSING FOR ALMOST 2 YEARS, TAKING UP TO 10-12 DAILY 750MG
I HAVE KNOWN FOR QUITE SOMETIME BUT RECENTLY HE CAME CLEAN WITH ME AND SAID HE WANTS AND NEEDS TO STOP. 3 DAYS WITHOUT ANYTHING AND HE HAS BEEN VERY ACHEY, RESTLESS, SOME HOT FLASHES, GOOSE BUMPS, MISERABLE, AND DEPRESSED. I HAVE ACESS TO 500 MG OF VICODIN AND ON DAY 3 OF THE EVENING I GAVE HIM 2 PILLS TO HELP WITH THE COMFORT OF WITHDRAWAL, SAME THING DAY 4 AND 5 (2 PILLS A DAY) MY PLAN IS TO GET HIM WEANED DOWN TO
1 A DAY IN THE NEXT DAY OR SO AND NO PILLS AT ALL (ONLY HAVE A FEW LEFT) AND CAN'T/WILL NOT GET ANYMORE. IS THIS A GOOD OR BAD THING????????.

I DON'T KNOW A LOT ABOUT THIS KIND OF ADDICTION BUT I REALLY WANT TO BE THERE FOR HIM AND HELP WITH AS MUCH POSITIVE FEEDBACK AS POSSIBLE. ANY TIPS OR INFO WOULD REALLY HELP ME.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH
AND CONGRATULATIONS ON GETTING CLEAN!
