Hi, I`ve been an opiate addict for around 8 months I think, although I`ve been on and off of them for over 2 years with bouts of "binges" that lasted anywhere from a week to a month. The past about 8 months I`ve been using everyday almost (at least 5 times a week) and never go a day without pills by choice always because of money, or because I can`t score any that day. Anyways its been causing a ton of problems in my life lately and I just ran into an old friend who has been clean off of opiates for over 7 months now and I decided that I also wanted that.
I`ve decided that I`m going to wean myself off for about 1-2 weeks and then stop. Ive been taking usually about 30-90 (sometimes higher almost never lower) mgs everyday of oxycodone with some morphine, or hydrocodone thrown in when I can`t get any oxy.
Does anyone have any advice on how I should go about this weaning? I was thinking of taking 15 mgs of morpine for 4 days (just because I have some left over) then buying some norcos and taking one a day for a couple of days then dropping to a half a day for a few days then quitting altogether. I realize that this is pretty quick of a wean but I really don`t have the willpower to do a drawn out wean and I know I`ll fail if I try that, I`m just trying to make it so that WDs are bearable enough that I can put up with it and go to work/school.
Any comments/suggestions are much appreciated and I know that there are some bluelight members very educated/experienced on this subject and any support will be very appreciated. thank
Oh and also I suffer from depression/anxiety and have since a couple years before I was introduced to opiates and am currently taking an SSRI medication lexapro at 10 mgs. I know WDs will exabberate these symptoms so if anyone has any advice on supplaments (preferably not benzos but mabey for the first 3 days) or other things I could do to help alleviate or at least downplay these things I would appreciate that alot thanks again.
