I have been addicted to vicodin for over two years. I began taking them occasionally for back pain and I am taking about four pills a day and I would like to quit. Can I get some idea of what I am in for? I told my doctor that I think that I am hooked to vicodin, that of the regular strength over a couple of years and he wants me to taper off of them. I told him that I did not want to do that. He agreed to allow me to go cold turkey and gave me a prescription of donatol and clonidine for the withdrawals.

Can someone tell me how long the withdrawals are going to last and how bad are they going to be?

Why not taper? Might help avoid some tough withdrawals. Just a thought.
