Common Questions and Answers about Oxycodone withdrawal stages

oxycontin

Yep right here!!...I swear, & not many people believe me, but my methadone withdrawal was almost like nothing!!...I was on it for 8yrs highest dose about 100mg, & from January to March 24, 2012 I tapered completely off...by myself..no Dr...I was 3months clean & started to have bladder/kidney pain, had some surgeries, got on oxycodone for that & am currently trying to taper off it...let me tell you, it has been beyond WORSE than the methadone!!!...
I have been taking 7.5mg of oxycodone hcl for the last 3 years, as a result of a failed ankle transplant which is now collapsing. I often snort the dose in belief that it will more quickly ease my pain, which is excruciating in the mornings. I have decided i no longer want to be taking this stuff for whatever reason. Maybe it's the negative stigma that is associated with painkillers like these, but i almost feel ashamed to be taking this.
I HAVE BEEN ON OXYCODONE FOR ABOUT A YEAR AND STARTED WITH 40 TO 50 MG A DAY AND WENT UP TO 90 MG A DAY FOR THE LAST THREE MONTHS> SUDDENLY 3 DAYS AGO I DROPPED TO 7.5 MG 3 TIMES A DAY , AND HAVE HARDLY NO SYMPTOMS. IS THIS GOOD. SHOULD I BE FEELING SOME WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOMS FROM DROPPING THAT FAR OF A DOSE FOR THE LAST THREE DAYS. I'VE SLEPT ALL NIGHT. THE VERY FIRST NIGHT A WOKE UP WITH STOMACH CRAMPS AND THE RUNS BUT THATS IT. I GUESS I FEEL A LITTLE DEPRESSED ,BUT NOTHING BAD.
I have been taking 6-7 oxycodone 30mg for the last 4 months, prior to that 60-10 Norco 10/325 for 18 months. I desperately want off, and I want to go cold turkey. I have Clonodine, Neurontin, Clonazepam- all to help me with withdrawal. I get mixed results when I ask online if it's safe to withdraw from opiates cold turkey. Can someone answer me? I am in otherwise good health with the exception of a bulging disc in my back which started this whole ugly mess.
This is not a question, just some advice to those of who are going through the initial stages of withdrawal. I am no expert by any stretch; however, I have quit OxyContin / OxyCodone cold turkey several times only to go back to it because of how bad I felt. This last time my typical daily dosing was around 250mg (lots). Yet this time quitting was entirely different and I attribute the reduced withdrawal affects to the following (again, I am not a Doctor, nor an expert).
I'm wondering if coffee is so bad, then how can the dr.s be so non-chalant about oxycodone. I'm afraid that oxycodone will have adverse affects on the growing baby especially in the early stages. I'm only three weeks pregnant (gestation age). I have tried mentho and camphor patches and Tylenol, but they are negligently effective. Please advise! Thanks!!
we heal every single hour of our recovery. There are stages....and some people choose short term supplementation of an anti-depressant. Others choose natural supplements such as 5HTP, SAM-E, etc. At the bottom of this page you can read the amino acid protocol for us in recovery and learn more about this. The re-posted Thomas recipe is also very helpful to a lot of people. They are listed under "Most Viewed Health Pages".
Hey all, I've been addicted to oxycodone since age 14. I'm age 28 now and ready to put this behind me. I've lost everything because of it. I've lost my family, friends, multiple jobs, lost my good credit, and all my money has gone to this drug. I use around 100mg daily, snorted. And only now its just dawned on me that I'm an addict and its the source of my problems. I'm gonna call a methodone/sub clinic Monday.
If you're having side effects from the medication that are causing you to think twice, then that is another story. The withdrawal has several stages, the first being 4-5 days of severe flu-like symptoms. That is usually followed by a period of depression and low energy. Different people experience different things for different periods of time. But the bottom line is if you want to quit, quit.
I am just curious as to how bad withdrawal can be? It has been 60 hours now since my last dose and I believe I am starting to feel normal again. The last 2 days were very uncomfortable, but I didn't experience any throwing up or other symptioms that other talk about, just cold sweat and boredom and a general discomfort. It wasn't like I was on a small a small dose either. I was snorting 240 mgs of oxycontins for the past 2 - 3 months straight. Anyone have any comments??
He went through the typical withdrawal symptoms the first week and is getting better everyday. However, he has these vomiting spells. Sometimes it's only once, other times, like last night, he goes on all night long. Is this normal withdrawal? He does have an extra sensitive stomach (perhaps from doing so many drugs) and vomiting isn't out of the ordinary for him. But I am concerned that maybe there is something more seriously wrong. Any feedback is welcome.
it has been 8 days without oxy 80mg ER or oxycodone 30mg and it is like my brain will NOT start making dopamine again. I sit down, I'm fine. I lay down, I'm fine. ( although i haven't slept much in th last 8 days) I am taking an herbal supplement to try and help me sleep.
I had been taking 180mg between Oxycontin and Oxycodone a day. I was prescribed these from a doctor, but failed to mention to him that I was a recovering alcoholic. I wanted to get high at the time, didn't want to accept that I would get hooked This was 2 destructive years ago that I am ashamed to look back on. I never imagined how this drug could sink such a monster size grip into my *** and rob me of everything.
I have been on oxycodone for about 7 months now... I take about 20-40mgs a day and I am wanting to come off of it. I just feel dirty on this sh*t... I have started to experience w/d when I wake in the morning and I am scared to go c/t. How long will I have these w/d's for and what else should I expect? Thanks for any help...
i finally had to go get some morphine (30mg tabs) because i could not bear the madness of the withdrawal stages. i was ok with them for a few days, now i am back up to taking whatever comes my way. i am afraid of not having any for my system. i have such a feeling of sheer HOPELESSNESS and would rather die than to got throug the withdrawals. i tried to contact the detox center here but they always tell me they don't have any beds available.
I have had IV fluids and to aid in any dehydration. I am not sure if this is part of the withdrawal. I have been clean from Oxy for 5 days. Please help !! Will this feeling end? Finished.
What will the withdrawal be like? Anything I can do as far as over the counter products or easy to obtain herbal or natural remedies? Please answer fast.
I'm also a little over a day myself today, 31 hrs to be exact, of 160mg of oxycontin withdrawal. The anxiety and sweats are by far my worst. I know I can get through this, I've been through this before and focused to be the last time. I want you to know you can get through this too, soon you will be feeling like other people are feeling off pills and it will be wonderful. I have too much to live for and I'm sure you do too.
I am 19 hours since my last pill and really do not feel that bad. A little moody and emotional. I think what I worry most about is withdrawal symptoms. When they start and so forth. I have done this before so you would think we get use to it. It really helps me to keep busy and not think to much about it. I was not doing it daily trying to put a day in between so I do not withdrawal.
The pain has resumed with a vengance, and I have started to have symptoms which I now see are withdrawal. Hot/cold flashes, sweating, irratibility, unable to sleep, difficulty swallowing, lethargy and severe depression. Luckily I found this site before I killed myself. My new PCP is an excellent Dr, caring and sensitive but I think we both need a better schedule. Suggestions welcome, also, what can I replace the Oxy with as I have to keep working? Thank you for your time.
Hello everyone, I just joined this group after checking to see what pills I had found in my fiance's clothes drawer. The reason why I am coming to this group is because I have read some of the things that everyone has written and I need some help. Last week, I admitted him into a voluntary rehab facility because after taking oxy for 3 years, he took MDMA. He was so paranoid but for some reason this drug opened his eyes to what he was doing to him, his finances and to me.
I've been an abuser of oxycodone 30mg pills for about 2 years. I switched to suboxone for the last 6 months. I was on about 1mg a day, sometimes a little more, maybe up to 2mg on some days. Well, I finally decided that I don't want to be a slave to a drug anymore. I want my life back. I used to be a motivated, successful person. Since I started the opiates, I've lost my job, lost my motivation, isolated myself from my friends, and spent most of the money I had saved up.
I dont like oxy's at all, they make me jumpy but they help the chills and rawness of the meth withdrawal. I'm thinking the small amount of oxycodone for 2 weeks won't give me a habit and i should be past the worst of methadone withdrawal by that time. I took more oxycodone for a longer time (2-3 5mg tabs every 4-6 hrs for 3 wks) after neck surgery a couple years ago and stopped taking them with no problem. I"m still somewhat anxious and sleep very little.
I was seeing my GI Doctor and after much debate convince him to put me on oxycodone short release as oppose to extended release as it went through me with any pain relief, because of short bowel from both surgeries. I'm currently on 20 pills a day at 15 mg per pill at dosages of 60MG, 60MG, 90MG and 90MG. I take it every 6 hours and I vary the amounts depending on the pain levels.
One thing that helped me more than anything was going on walks. It was so hard to do so in the early stages of withdrawal but I forced myself. Once I was out walking I felt so much better. Toss in some headphones with your favorite music and try it. Just trust me on this one! Also, drink plenty of fluids and try to eat and eat healthy. Eat a bunch of fruits and raw veggies.
MY PERSONAL DIARY OF OXYCONTIN WITHDRAWAL. May I briefly fill in a little background.I am David aged 55 and employed as a postman/driver/sorter, well up until 38 months ago I had never been into hospital,well boy was that about to change.
Sorry to but in but are you on Oxycontin or Oxycodone. I was on Oxycontin as was taken about 5 80's a day and was in severe w/d after about 12 hours. And I noticed that you said that they were 15. for a script of the generic. Here it is almost the same price as the brand. I script of 90 (40mg) which is what I was getting (from a doc) costs about $500. and then the other script I was getting was 90 (20 mg) was 328. for generic and 468 for brand.
