percocet

Avatar f tn what is meant by jumping off ilight>andilight> half life? i have taken 3 tablets of 8mg ilight>subutexilight> over the past 7 days for vicodin withdrawl. i don't want to stay on them or move to suboxone (which is what my dr wanted). i have only 7 pills of 8mg left. What should i do at this point. i took time off of work last week so cannot take any more. Any advice. i value advice from other addicts more that this doctor who want me on suboxone.
Avatar n tn i know he struggles and really wants to get better, but he went to a psych ilight>andilight> was prescribed ilight>subutexilight> which i knopw is an opiate ilight>andilight> helps with withdrawels form the hydrocodone for him. i dont know how it satrted but i was off the percocet and i guess looking for that feeling again and i starting unfortunatel sniffing little bits of the subutex.
Avatar n tn i was on a total of 24 days with 2 days having to swtich back to ilight>percocetilight> for a medical proceudre. i tapered down to .25 for 4 days before i jumped off ilight>andilight> i asked my dr to prescribe clonidine for me just incase. i didn't need it at all. i wasa little sweaty here and there and had some mild restless arms but nothing that made it impossible to function and nothing that made it impossible to sleep and it was only for a day at most. i feel totally fine today~~. it svaed my life.
Avatar f tn i was on it at first but told my doctor that i was concerned that i didnt need that agent as i didnt inject, but what if i got in a bad accident and the hospital injected me with morphene? So she changed me to ilight>subutexilight> ilight>andilight> i am fine today. if you are taking ilight>subutexilight> ilight>andilight> think it isnt working, then you didnt go through the being sick before you take it. No it will not be felt to work if you go right from taking 20 vicodin a day to taking subutex without taking at least a day of withdralw sick.
Avatar f tn but i cant be sick and take care of kids which is why i tried the ilight>subutexilight> hoping it would ease the w/d of the percs ilight>andilight> it did. now i just want to not take anything ilight>andilight> get a job. i need to know how long it will b in my system. i will wait til its out before i start setting up interviews. but i have to get a job soon or im going to sink financially bigtime.
1935227 tn?1323539678 This isn't a race - you didn't become an addict overnight ilight>andilight> won't get off the drugs overnight either. Please listen to everyone ilight>andilight> take their advice. Good luck to you. and congrats for wanting to quit.
Avatar m tn 3 days after i'm normal again, my friend calls with ilight>subutexilight> ilight>andilight> i figured hell, i already relapsed twice into Roxy, lets quit this cycle. So i had the ilight>subutexilight> and got a hold of Roxanne right after that, leaving subutex waiting on me like a naked girl in the closet.
Avatar f tn i am having my tonsils taken out on march 1st ilight>andilight> have been taking ilight>subutexilight> 16 mg/day for 10 months. i am an operating room nurse and have talked to a couple of anesthesia doctors and none of them no about this medication. i am also trying to get preg and my obgyn said its a good drug to be on when you have a baby for pain control, she said not to change any dose. Does anyone know anything about either of my situations.
Avatar f tn i've been taking ilight>subutexilight> ilight>andilight> xanax for about a year now. i was on ilight>percocetilight> 30s ilight>andilight> oxycontin 80mg but thought subutex was a good way for me to escape all the grief of withdrawing half the time. i take subutex in the morning and xanax at night usually. Then i started to mix them a little. Sometimes i felt really weird and not right plus was getting xanxious and worried. i've been to the hospital a couple times and thought i was dying.
Avatar n tn i went from 200lbs to 122lbs ilight>andilight> my mom knew i wasn't eating even though i had a nice house, cars ilight>andilight> a good job. The inevitable happened my supply stopped and because i was so dependent on the pills i started making my own perscriptions until the boys in blue arrested me. i understand that you can't miss work, kids to take care of but if you want to stop without the pain of terrible withdrawl there are five day detox establishments all over.
Avatar n tn This pregnancy has been much more difficult, ilight>andilight> i have been prescribed ilight>percocetilight>. i was on ilight>subutexilight> for a pain prb, which i became addiced to pills, and when i became pregnan, they switched me to precocet.
Avatar f tn i just don't know if i should continue taking the subs while i am on the ilight>percocetilight>. i want off the subs really bad, but i only got 15 percs ilight>andilight> i don't know how long it will take me to get another Dr appt. You see i'm on vacation, i went to the house Dr at the resort i'm at. i do go home today, but i don't know when i will get a Dr appt.hopefully soon. i'm also wondering, if this is a way for me to get off the subs, because i have been trying for months, and can't seem to get any lower than. .
216878 tn?1196041120 My husband ilight>andilight> i are both coming off a 4 year ilight>percocetilight> addiction together. We just ended 6 weeks of ilight>subutexilight> therapy and are feeling some discomfort coming off those, but we are resolved to never go back to our life on percocet. We know that if we do, we will probably lose everything...our marriage, our jobs, our sanity. YOU can DO THiS. We all altered our brain chemistry with the drubs, and it will not return to normal over night, but it will one day. Try the Thomas Recipe.
Avatar f tn i am 14 weeks pregnant ilight>andilight> addicted to ilight>percocetilight> i take about 40-60 mg a day. i really want to get off but i cant take the withdrawal. i bought 8 suboxone pills hoping that they will help. My question is, how do i take it safely and can i take it for a week to help with the worst withdrawal symptoms without getting addicted to it?
Avatar f tn My Name is Michelle, i am a mother of 1 and have a wonderful supportive husband, i had an operation back in March that caused some pain and was perscribed T3 for pain, well that didn't work so someone offered me a ilight>percocetilight> big mistake, i got addicted to the ilight>percocetilight> ilight>andilight> started taking about 14 to 16 a day this was the course i was on for about 4 months, i was so addicted that just recently i admitted myself to a methadone program and i am feeling major guilt.
Avatar f tn i just found out i am about 4 weeks pregnant ilight>andilight> couldn't be happier, but i am addicted to ilight>percocetilight> ilight>andilight> need to kick the habit like yesterday! i have been taking between 300 and 390 mg of 30 mg percocet. i found out 5 days ago, and have started to taper down and have cut it down by %50 already. My questions are have i damaged my baby in these 4 weeks that i didn't know i was pregnant and was taking high doses of percocet? is it safe to taper and eventually stop while pregnant?
Avatar f tn My friend said that her doctor has perscribed her one ilight>subutexilight> a day ilight>andilight> ilight>percocetilight> ten mgs and 5mgs together before a ankly surgery. We are both addicts, i have been clean for 2 years with the help of subutex (my life was a mess before that) So im worried about her. She claims that the doctor doesnt want her to become addicted to pain meds so he is giving her the subutex once a day to prevent that.
662972 tn?1270169901 soo i swictched before i started toa buse them and start the vicious cycle all over again to go to a methadone treatment facility and its been over 6 months and its not only sved my life, but has given me structure, stability, motivation, ilight>andilight> support...i think for all of these treatment methods which ilight>subutexilight> sorry to say is only used durin detox and at the verry begininning of suboxone treatment then you are switched to suboxone so thos are the same...both ahve very long and brutal wd's..
Avatar n tn So only doctor's that prescribe suboxen test for it. i am taking ilight>subutexilight> now ilight>andilight> i am on probation for a DUi. So i axed the Dr. if subutex will show up and he said no, not on anything. i have to take random UA's for 6 months even though i got the DUi dropped.
Avatar f tn i have been on ilight>subutexilight> for a long while now ilight>andilight> i am scheduled to have hernia surgery on July 10th. The surgeon is aware and so is my addiction specialist. My surgeon said i will need strong pain meds, he likes to use percocet...well the Addiciton specialist, says the pain won't be that bad and i should only need ibuprofen 800 for about 1 or 2 days! i told the surgeon that and he disagreed!!! He understands that i am scared about the pain medicine, but i believe that i will be ok.
Avatar m tn are ilight>subutexilight> ilight>andilight> suboxone identical...i thought suboxone was the one with the naloxone in it....it is not recommended to take either while on meds like oxy...
Avatar m tn This is a great forum ilight>andilight> the members are very helpful ilight>andilight> supportive. i have been here for awhile now ilight>andilight> just celebrated 5 months today. i used Sub for 10 days in June to get off a over 2 yr. pill habit of self medicating my chronic pain.
642313 tn?1244075322 search this site for ilight>subutexilight> withdrawal ilight>andilight> you will find that the consensus is that ilight>subutexilight> really *****. its a good way to get off hydros iF and ONLY iF YOU STiCK TO THE THREE WEEK PROGRAM THEN TAPER and JUMP OFF!!!!! DON'T GET HOOK ON SUBS!!!!! As always seek out a good Doctor and take his or her advice. uNFORTUNATELY i didn't realize at the time that the Doctor i went to in Vegas was pretty much just a pill-pusher.....or maybe he just doesn't know how rough Subs can be....
1085335 tn?1256448445 Well to start i just signed up for this website and i am totally confused on how to add friends ilight>andilight> all that so i hope it is easy to figure out...i am currently addicted to ilight>percocetilight> ilight>andilight> a friend is trying to get me to take suboxone...i was just wondering if that is addicting also? Any info on suboxone would be awesome also...i have an aquaintance that goes to the methadone clinic and is trying to get me to go...
Avatar n tn i am going every month from ilight>subutexilight> to ilight>percocetilight> ilight>andilight> i always say im going to taper but then my doc appt comes around and i get more percs .
Avatar m tn Hello, i was on suboxone for a couple years ilight>andilight> switched to ilight>subutexilight> ilight>andilight> have been on ilight>subutexilight> for about a year, normally breaking my 8mg tablet in half and only taking 4mg. i am on my 5th day cold turkey, and i must say from what i have read about others experiences with tapering down and going thru hell for months, that cold turkey is the way to go. i don't feel excellent, but it really isn't that bad. i took my last dose Sunday afternoon, typically taking it around 4pm or 5pm.
Avatar f tn i had a car accident about 4 years ago where my head was turned over my shoulder ilight>andilight> BAM i slammed into the idiot in front of me who was going ilight>andilight> stopped for no reason...anyway...after the accident i didnt have any pain...then 2 years later is when i started taking percs...at first for eye surgery...then u know...for pleasure...i only took 7.5 at most at a time and maybe 2x a day at most...some days i didnt even take them...quit a few times and then they were offered again and took more...
Avatar n tn yes ilight>percocetilight> is oxycodone ilight>andilight> tylenol ilight>andilight> it is hard as hell to come off of, but you are right it can be done. Percs were my drug of choice. At the end of my using i was taking 60 ten mg percs a day. March 11th has been one year for me. it is no cake walk but i am here to tell you it can be done. As far as the sub is concerned, he should not be taking that unless he is being followed by a doctor. Sub is a very, very strong narcotic, much stronger than the percs he was taking.
