    Red face Cold Turkey 48 hours Into Withdrawals

    Hi everyone I am very new here and I want to tell my story. I started out being prescribed 5mg of oxycodone Quantity of 60 around 2009 or 2010 for just horrible menstrual cramps and at some point I went up to 10mg I don't know when or how this happened. I was never a pill popper just when needed and never before work but after when needed. At some point that all changed and I do believe it was when I started hurting so bad in my lower back from being rear ended by a mail truck in 7/2008 which at that time I only saw a chiro never took pain meds. It took almost 2 years for me to start to feel this awful pain in my back I couldn't move some mornings. So to make it to work and function I took before or during work. I never noticed how my life started to change even though it was already going down hill. Also in 10/2009 my girlfriend who I have been with this May for 14 years was laid off from her job of over $90.000 a year. As the reality of the situation started to set in I guess somewhere I lost focus on what I needed to really be taking this drug for. Soon I was starting to run low and needing more I was very ignorant to the withdrawals associated with Percocet I had no idea. Omg I had no idea or I would have never touched it. The only research I did was to see what it was indicated for but nothing more. Of course 5 years ago it was not such an epidemic as it was then so my pcp of 5 years had no issue prescribing it for me. At that time all I had to do was call him and say this is what I need now don't get me wrong my PCP is a very reputable doctor just at that time you could just call it in to the pharmacy. I lost my mother in 11/2012 and I Used it as an escape and I know I did I loved my mother so deeply as her only daughter we did everything together . My mother also went to her grave knowing I was taking these as she was prescribed them at one time and I took hers. It makes you so hollow this drug is so damn seductive. I would travel to my dr 2.5 hours over 200 miles to receive my RX's for next few month. Spending at least $200.00 that I didn't have just for the romance with this drug.

    Well Sunday I took my last 5mg at 2pm and decided that is it no more. I took the last 60 pills of 10/325 I had over the last two weeks and starting tapering best I could with some help. Yesterday I cried all day I just wanted one more to feel better. I had the opportunity to make it happen if only I went to the Chiro today to get a referral to the pain med Dr who would not see me without my MRI results back from when I had surgery and a host of other things FL law now requires this in itself was a blessing in disguise. The soonest I would see the Dr would have been Friday I would be on Day 5. So this morning I cancelled all my rides to go see the Chiro which was $50.00 and $250.00 for seeing the Dr on Friday. It was not an easy decision but I feel great about it but to tempt me one last time the second ride I had lined up I thought she forgot but she showed up asked if I still wanted to go and I said NO. Yesterday I feel was the worse more might be coming. Between last Friday and this past Sunday I was down to between 10-15mg. I was taking at one point right around 80-100mg depending on the day of 10/325. I took about 90 pills maybe less and started to taper a bit cause I felt that I would not be able to refill anymore couldn't make that long trip to my dr. So here I am on Day 2 of going cold turkey I have been using some of the Thomas Recipe. I have some aches the RLS is the one thing that drives me nuts so I am going to try the Hylands which has been suggested on here. I do have Klonpin but I have resisted the urge to take it. I will try Benadryl if I need to sleep hopefully it helps. Do not under estimate the power of Immodium I take one 30ML in the morning and one at night. Everyone will be different. I have prayed so compassionately saying that I want my life back its not easy at all I have dreams of them I see them and the mind game this drug plays on you is relentless. I am blessed to have a spouse of 14 years she hates to see my withdraw but she said to me yesterday I want these pills out of our lives, I want my woman back and our lives we have spent so much on this. She pleaded with me. So I said who do I love more my partner of 14 years or this drug. I choose myself and her. Withdrawals are hell but I do believe some tapering before you go cold turkey might help. I am now going into Day 3 and I hear Day 3 and 4 is the worse. This forum is amazing for support when I read others stories I can make it through I know I can. So right now the RLS is kicking in I haven't felt it all morning. Thank you all for sharing your stories and I pray we can continue to provide one another support.
