this began my opiate journey. I have been prescribed everything from Hydrocodone to Fentanyl
. At one point, I was using a 150mcg patch every 48 hrs. along with 15mg Oxycodone 4x per day. My tolerance was through the roof.
To make a very long story short, in march, 2013 it was time to wean off of all the opiates and see if I could manage my pain with other types of medication. By May, I was a complete wreck. I was out of the w/d phase but craved the opiate like nothing before.
