Finally weaned off the fentanyl patch this week. It's been 6 days. As I was weaning my craving/ need for Norco has increased. I'm trying next to wean off the Norco 10/325 6 a day but having a very tough time both pain wise and withdrawal wise. Clonidine has helped but not much. How long does it take for Norco to get out of your system and what helps with the WD symptoms. This all stared after 3 back surgeries and has been going on for 7 years.

Hello, John! How are you doing?

When coming off of opiates, it is normal to experience withdrawal symptoms, which can include rebound pain. As listed by the FDA, you may also experience nausea, fever, chills and diarrhea.

There's really nothing else that will specifically help with the withdrawal symptoms, except for tapering very slowly.

Norco only takes about 20 hours to exit your body, after taking your last dose.

Is your doctor helping you with this? They should be able to help you set up a withdrawal schedule that will help minimize withdrawals.

I got off Morphine and Norcos. It was tough. I never hurt so bad but my last two months on Norco was weak and threw me into withdrawals. I was on them for 7 years. I'm glad I'm off these. Docs and pharmacy's know you're addicted and treat you like a street junkie, which made me mad enough to stop. I still have pain but got my dignity back. I hope they pay for what they did.

Finally feeling better off Norco/morphine. I'm now taking Iodine, non-narcotic cdb oil and cymbalta helps, though it's not as good as narcotics but I'm enduring a little pain better than being an addict. I don't have to deal with U/A's every month like I'm a criminal, lol. So humiliating... counting your pills. I'm not a fan of pain doctors. God bless those of you getting off narcotics. I know it's very tough but doing it the hard way made me where I don't ever want to go back. Also I didn't think it was possible get off them. I'm so thankful to be free of it. Hang in there. I'm praying for you all.

Re: Verwon (# 1)

I personally feel that a hot bath and an artisan and a warm place to stay for a couple days is the beat. Just make sire you hydrate.Prayer and lots of it. You will be just fine. Hold your high and keep on keeping on. God Bless. Your friend Cheryl

Hi John, I was able to get through stopping all opiates and benzos by mixing Kratom and CBD, IF Kratom is legal in your area it is so cheap and easy to take for pain relief. I have 80 percent pain relief AND I use CBD drops 500 mg bottle, 1 half a dropper ea h dose of Kratom. No opiates or benzos now since 2015. God bless you and good luck!

Susie,

I have been trying to get off them too, so researched and ordered luminas patches! I have chronic pain from 18 autoimmune diseases my opioid meds strength is 5-300mcg. I take 2-4 times a day! I started the patch, one on r. side of knee that is very painful at times and one on r. hip bone. Good for 24 hrs. Next day I skipped my morning 10am med and took my 2pm, then skipped my 6pm and took my 10pm! And felt adequate, just as well as with my 4 (2's) a day on only 2(2's) a day. You get 24 small and 24 large patches! The small are like 3" and large like 5" or more. Very easy to work with. My shoulders are frozen so hard to reach! Love them! All natural with tumeric and curcumin, and many others! Don't know you have them on! I ordered 2 boxes under $54. Total! Go on google and check them out first to make sure that they're what you want & read the patient reviews! Good luck susie!

Re: Susie (# 4)

You reminded me of me! My Dr had me on 240 vicodin brand for 2 1/2 years and 8 a day! I had never had that much before, but It never took all of the pain away. Then like younMy pharma started saying they didn't have enough product tonfill my legal script! so I did get a different pharma to cover me for sbout a month, but then same thing over, I got it filled from apharma across the street from my regular pharma, but she couldn't fill it next time! So I found another one that would give me half because all he had told my doctor and he said to take it! All the while making me look like I was a seeker, even though I slways had a legitimate prescription in my hand! In 2 1/2 yrs I never asked for more or a change. Finally the next month, when I tried to get it filled, I was told by a pharmacist that they are not making Vicodin Brand anymore! And I was left with nothing! It was the only thing that I could take!

Years before, though on a much lower dose of Hydrocodone/Tylenol I developed an allergic reaction so my Dr at that time switched me to the brand Vicodin and told me not to take the other one! But now my Doc wanted to give me Morphine, Percocet, or something else, which I refused, so he suggested I take the generic that I was allergic to! I said okay, only knowing I would never take it. It was still an opiate! That's when I was determined to get the vicodin out of my body and not play these games again with the FDA, DEA, CDC
or pharmacies! I didnt even tell my doctor! I am 86 yrs old in May, disabled with one leg 1 1/4" shorter than the left (very painful gait), 2 frozen shoulders, leaving me with very short reach, COPD, Fibromyalgia for 8 years, Hashimoto's thyroiditis, Hypothyroidism, OsteoArthritis, Bursitis, Tendonitis, Etc Etc!

It took about 3 months and I kept going into withdrawal and getting sick over and over, but now im off of opiates for about two months and would like to get on low dose naltrexone to see if it will work for me! But--- I am in excruciating pain, even worse than 2 yrs ago and have been trying to find something natural and legal as I will never take opioids again!
