I was on pain meds for over 14 years (mostly on) but not all the time. All different kinds. I assume the fact that when I went <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cold</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>turkey</span>
, I had been on meds for a good 3 years straight. Went from a 3 a day
10mg. lorcet to about 10-12 a day
at the most. But I think in my case, the fact I had been taking them for soo long, my wd's were pretty horrible. Lasted about 9 or 10 day
s, not all awful, got better as time went on. But the first 5
were miserable. And I tapered with them as well.
