    Am on day 4 myself....well in two more hellish hours. Whole body still hurts but I am not looking the hell back. Aside from 2 friends NOBODY knows the hell I have gotten myself in to in two, almost three years. Was going through anywhere from my 40 MG of Oxycodone prescribed along with 200 on street. This has been hell but showers and Gatorade have really helped. The restlessness and no sleep are the worst.

    I am on day 3. Goddess012 your post moved me to tears. I regret that I started these evil little demons. I am feeling chills but not as bad as day 1 & 2. I finally slept last night. I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. This forum has been a God send. Bless all of you. Just wish I had more energy.

    I envy you for being able to get some shut eye. When night hits and I'm going through withdrawal I turn from my left side to right side about 600,000 times. Tossing and turning literally from the moment I lay down until the birds start chirping and the sun is screaming in through my window. Envy.

    I am unfortunately still using, but am trying to quit.

    I have tapered down from 150 to 200mg of oxcycodone a day to 60 mg of hydrocodone s. A day. My last dose will be at 8:00pm tonight. My life has been on a downward spiral. Like most I'm tired of the game. Counting pills waiting for the next script. I have to get my life back. I want to wake up and see the sun truly shine again. I admire your courage. Good luck!

The great thing is that i now know i can do it and the addiction is OVER!!!!!!! I still have a long way to go but its all up from here. Oh and i did it coldturkey just FYI.
    How are you now I'm on day 4 today and feel great to be alive again still suffering slightly but nothing compared to day 2 and 3

    Hey big dog - great job so far. I just wanted to say I know exactly how you feel right now and you are amazing for deciding to end the crazy. It's a crazy cycle that consumes your life. It's crazy the amount of $ we spend to ruin our lives. I have been in this crazy cycle of addiction for over 15 years. The last 9 on Suboxone I have Only been clean for 11 days so I'm right there with you I know you can do this I promise if you need to talk or have any questions I can help with please let me know

    I made a big mistake taking my girls Tramadol and now I'm on day 4cof withdrawal I feel better just very fatigue. I took it for two weeks straight at 50mg twice a day!! It gets easier day by day sleep is the worst of it but each day it gets better some days better then others. I'm doing this for myself and her she flushed them down the toilet be issue she was afraid of being addicted to it. Now she's having symptoms also but nothing as severe as I am. Anyone who is fighting don't give up there is a light at the end of the tunnel and you'll know once you get there!!

    Default Day 4!

    Hi guys! Ok so I'm on day 4..or should I say DAY 4!!!! Yay! I'm new to all of this, but I can tell you everyone's stories, feedback, info and support is so helpful!! I have been reading everybody's posts for 3 days but just finally got up the energy to write.. I started this journey of hell about 5 yrs ago.. All because I had a toothache!! A freaken toothache!! So I was complaining to my neighbor and she was "nice" enough to offer me a 5 mg perc... Well it made me throw up.. I wish that's were I could say the story ends....(I wouldn't be on this site if that was true!)

    Ok we'll make a long story short one night I had a huge buzz, and asked her for another one! And guess what? This time I didn't get sick!! Nope! At first it was awesome! It made housework fun, it made washing my car fun, it made going out fun, etc..etc.. Then it started making my job more fun, my evenings more fun, my mornings more fun pretty soon after about 2 years of "fun" it really wasn't as fun anymore, oh but then I got my hands on some 10s and 15s.. And guess what it was fun again! Then when i couldn't get those I found someone that had 30s.. In my mind I thought oh my! What am I doing?? Ok, ok, no biggie, I'll just half it! Well we all know how that goes!! Anyway, it wasn't until a week ago that my BF came home and said that he thinks my son has been taking his Percs!! 50 of them to be exact! He won't touch the stuff, and he never knew that I did them, he had a shoulder injury and his doc gave him a script so he got it filled just in case he may need one.. Well boy oh boy! That was like hitting the jack pot! Sorry I'm getting sidetracked! Well by this point I was done with the lies, the stress, the ups and downs of this horrible ride! And I definitely could not let my son( my flesh and blood) take the wrap for my sickness! It took me a couple of days of anguish and despair to finally come clean and fess up that I had a problem! That was on Sunday.. It is now Thursday and I haven't had a pill since Sunday morning at 8am... And let me tell you, this has been the hardest thing I have ever done!! This has been kicking my butt for 4 days!! The good news is I'm finally getting more energy.. Yesterday I made my self get out of the house to go to Walgreens to get some vitamins, Gatorade, Imodium, cough syrup, Advil pm, Tylenol, and just some Advil.. By last night I totally thought I was somewhat out of the woods... But another night of no sleep and this morning the anxiety is killing me! I have never let myself get to the wd stage before it got too bad, I would always find something to relieve it.. I will say, it does relieve a lot of stress going through this knowing that I never ever have to feel this way again!! So at the end of my run of 5 yrs I was up to anywhere from 80-150 mgs a day of oxy and when I didn't have those I would get 7.5 hydros and eat about 15 per day.. Our dog had eye surgery and one day I couldn't find anything and yup u know what happened! That's right I ate the freakin dogs tramodal! So for those of you who are reading this and you are on day 1 or 2 DONT give into those evil things! You can do this! I know I have to keep telling myself that! When I was on day 1 and reading everybodies stories I was so jealous of the people who were on day 3 and 4, and as I sit here now on day 4 I'm proud that I made it this far but I'm super scared of the unknown...the anxiety, the anxiety, the anxiety! I can't even think about taking a hot shower or bath Cuz I'm too scared of it being too cold when I get out!! I'm freezing! Im so tired of this hell! And it is truly hell, but I know it won't last forever!

    Thanks to everyone for all of your support it really does make a difference!

    Welcome!

    Start a new thread for yourself so you can journal any progress made towards your goal. This is an older thread and no longer any responses associated with it. If you need help starting that thread just let us know and we'll help.

    Methadone is a bear to get off, but not impossible. I was on it for years and it took me a while to finally get off. Tapering the mdone is sometimes difficult. It requires a plan that needs to be followed closely. And the rate of taper needs to be very slow and steady to prevent harsh symptoms. From the 80mg per day you're now taking a common rate of reduction would be around 2-5% every 5-7 days or so. If you try to stop cold turkey you will be having a very rough road ahead. With the long half life of mdone it remains in your system a very long time.

    What I did (and many, many others) is reduce our methadone dose down to. around 30mgs per day (and lower) then make the switch to Suboxone. It's far easier to taper the subs than the mdone. That might be something you want to consider? I can certainly help you with that if you choose that route.

    Get your new thread started and we can talk there. Others will respond also with help and support.

    Randy

    Goddess012, I am on my 3rd day as well and I cannot believe how much better I am starting to feel. I am obviously not out of the woods but like you I can see the light!! I also was taking tramadol and Percocet. I realized I was needing to take more in order for it to work properly and I didn't want that. I didn't want to become dependent and what I didn't realize is that I already was. I was only on them for 1 month, I had no idea you could develop a dependency so quickly, but you can. I will never accept another narcotic prescription from the dr or anyone else again. This has been a complete nightmare. I am hoping me starting to feel better isn't just a tease and that I will begin to feel as badly again. Congratulations to you for being strong and sticking with it!! I hope to get completely past this before school is out for the summer so that I can do all of the fun things with my children and not feel bad while doing so!!
