What is the best way to stop oxyneo meds
I have been on oxyneo for 12 months (oxycontin) for pain from a severe motor vehicle accident.
The meds were great, took away all the pain so that I could cope and function.
Now I am trying to stop taking them, I would take 10 mg in the morning, then another 8 hours later, then two at bedtime.
My doctor has told me to only take one now at bedtime.
The past two days have been hell, I am going through withdrawal. I have the shakes, cold sweats, pain from head to toe - feeling like my body is going
to jump out of my skin, irritability and restless.
has anyone else gone through with this, I am scared to tell my doctor what I am going through, not sure how long I can take this.
How long is this going to last, am I going to go through this every time I try to stop taking a pill.
My doctor said when I get weaned down to no pills, that my body will feel like it is in shock because my body has build up a tolerance to the high
dosages that I was taking,
any help or suggestions are greatly needed
I am seeing my pain meds counsellor tonight and will tell him what I am going through
thanks in advance for any comments or suggestions
