I just lowered my pain medication myself....yes myself and I know people keep asking me why? Well I have severe lupus and started taking benlysta a year ago and I'm doing much better and I take 2 chemotherapy drugs Crockett and methotrexate, I would like to save my liver and kidneys if possible.....I have a 7 yr old. I went down on Friday and I noticed small withdrawals but now getting pain in hands and feet but only off and on, do I need to go back up to 40mg oxycotin or stay on 30 mg x a day with break through. What would be best for liver and maybe after 3 years, I can't come down. Has anyone come down without having pain but lived with discomfort and breakthrough medication.

Hello, Seagreen! How are you doing?

How did you lower Oxycontin? They are time released, so it isn't safe to be cutting the tablets.

People have been on narcotics for much longer than 3 years and been able to taper off, but it must be down carefully to prevent the rebound pain and withdrawal symptoms.

This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

And there's not really anything that's best for your liver, most all medications are process through it and can cause risks.

Is there anything else I can help with?
