I've been addicted to oxy off and on for 5 years. This last year has been the worst- dealing with WDs and lying. I'm at the point where it has killed me financially and I can't stand the cycle I'm in. I've cut way back (from 300mgs to 60mg a day). I've tried to fully quit but when I get the urge/craving/depression/boredom, I have no one to talk to- so I start back up. I can see the life I had before...it's so close and have to get back to it. I just need help... From anyone....please. The major issue is that no one knows. I have a live in BF of 1 year and he has no idea. I cannot lie about the "errands" I have to run anymore or why I'm "working late". But I know that if I just have someone to talk to,while making this change- it will help me. I just feel so alone, trapped and helpless. Please help me. I just need a friend that understands this process. This is NOT the life I'm meant to have.

Hello, Sadie! How are things going for you?

It is tough to stop such a medication. I went cold turkey off of it and high doses of Morphine after being on pain management for about 7 years and the withdrawals lasted over a month.

The FDA lists the typical withdrawal effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, rebound pain, depression and diarrhea.

Have you tried tapering off? Have you considered getting medical assistance? How much do you take each day?
