Welcome to the forum.
Sorry, but you can
get addicted after only 3 weeks. The longer you
are taking them, the harder the w/d's will be when you stop. I would take only as directed and really try to space them out. When you stop using the pain meds here is what you can expect: The w/d's start (for me) about 12 hrs after your last dose. Anxiety, sleeplessness, muscle aches and pains, diarrhea, chills, sweats, sneezing, coughing, watery eyes, restless leg syndrome and it is compared to the flu.
