I did, however, slowly lower the dosage, from 10mg
every 4 hrs, to every 12 hrs, over a 3 or 4 month period, with the help of a drug called Clonodine, which helps with the withdrawal. I work hard during the day, when the weather is really bad and I'm in pain, NOT to take a dose in the middle of the day. I wait until night time to take it, and then the pain goes away. I recently told my doctor that I want to get off of it, because I'm afraid that i am becoming an addict.
