... Most doctors don't have a clue on how to taper off of opiates. Dropping a whole pill all at once will almost guarantee withdrawals. You have to take it slow. 10-20% a week or every few days is sort of the rule of thumb. The closer you get to zero (cold turkey) the slower you have to go by increasing the days before the next drop. I suffered unbelievable withdrawals... (8 replies)

... I'm siding with Boxerlover on this one. 4 week is not much time after major surgery, but he should start thinking about tapering down to get off of it in the next few weeks. Most people don't start getting the false pain from taking opiates after 4 weeks. It usually takes much longer. ... (8 replies)

... rawals and suboxone eliminates them, so long as you don't stay on the sub too long and taper properly off of it.

... I was really bad for a while getting anything I can get my hands on. Oxys, percs, rock 30's. But the last two months I really gave a serious effort into tapering down. I went 3 weeks in only taking 4 or 5 perc 5's a day. Then I had a 2 week stint taking 2mg of subs a day. ... (2 replies)
... What I really should do is tell the doctor my situation and have him cut me off (after I'm done tapering). But I'm too afraid. If I know I can't get any oxy, I may want them more. If I have a supply of them, and can control the taper schedule myself, I think psychologically it will make me stronger. I am so looking forward to the day when I can re-join the "normal" people...

... Hello Denon Welcome aboard. Many blessings on you as you work your way off the opiate. I tapered off Oxycodone first and then Xanax. I was on straight oxycodone, about 12 fivemgs tablets per day. In my own experience, the slower the taper the better. I pretty much followed the 55-10% Rule.... tapering only that small a portion each time and then gicing my body 1-2... (14 replies)

The fentyl... (4 replies)
... Hello Lisa To tackle addiction is to tackle a lot of fear. Fear of the secret being out, fear of the withdrawal, fear of life without the pills. Oh, I know these fears well because I was addicted to opiates and to Xanax. Those fears grow and grow until they become like an out of contol cancer in our very souls.Like you, my use spiraled and with it, my entire life spiraled... (58 replies)
