... Hey A, I'm about to go thru my taper off of morphine & percocet. I don't think there has ever been anything, in my life, that has been so overwhelming. You need to stop looking at the whole taper process and do it hour by hour, minute by minute if you have to. There definitely have been MANY days that I've had to do it minute by minute. It sounds stupid to say that out... (43 replies)

... just don't know....i am so afraid of wd's....I have 2 kids still at home and need to be on my game, i know that is probably an excuse.

... hat I'm talking about. I know of people having them after stopping anti depressants, benzos, and alcohol, but I'd never heard of them after opiates.

... Typically a Dr's perception of taper is not real world reality. If the Dr tapers you at greater then 10% every 3-5 days then you will have mild withdrawal symptoms. Rule of thumb with a taper is to reduce at 5-10% every 3-5 days. Preferably 5% every 5 days would reduce WD symptoms to a very small minimum. 10% will also work but you will feel it a bit more. Anything greater... (10 replies)
