Good morning friends, my tapering not going so good I guess. I all my friends out there are feeling better this morning, I miss all of you! As I have already told everyone, trying to tapper down to 6 Norco 10/325 per day where I am supposed to be. I had to make the choice for myself to ween OFF of Oxycotin 120 mg per day time release. I would still be taking the Oxycotin because I do live in chronic pain, but the oxy. Made me feel worse. I did try the oxycotin for 6 months, long enough to give it time to work. For me, it made my pain worse woke up every morning barely being able to get out of bed usually between 3:00 am and 4:00 am. It also made me very depressed. I don't feel like my mind and body have healed completely from weening off the oxycotin. Tus morning is sad and lonely. In the morning my pain level is at its worst! Not making excuses for myself, but I feel the weening down to 6 Norco would be easier if I had no pain to deal with on a daily basics. I have had a lot of stress in my life for the past year and a half, which has also made my pain worse. If only I were already at 6 per day! I am so grateful to have found these boards, before I thought I was the only one struggling. I hope all my friends have a peaceful day!
Hello poppit. So sorry to hear today has started off so rough for you. Have you looked into any 'alternative' therapies to help you with your pain? I dont know any,but it was just something I was thinking of for you. I cant imagine how hard it must be to live with chronic pain,and then dealing with all the addiction stuff on top of. Is there a reason why your pain is so great in the morning particularly? Just wondering if it would be possible to take more of the norco in the morning and less in the pm......if that would help. I really wish I had more experience with this so I could offer some blindingly good piece of advice!
Anyways,Im here for you ,my friend, if you need someone to lean on. Im only a post away. I admire your strength in trying to taper in the face of pain...keep going girl!! You're an inspiration.
love as always .........CC
