As with any narcotic you with get withdrawls and pretty bad ones at that. I did not take my ativan, clonazepam, and lorazepam for one whole week. I thought I was going to die. Could not leave the house as I had no energy. Felt like it was the end of the world. I just did not fill my meds in NH that week when I was home as I went out riding with hubby on the bike and forgot.

It will take awhile for you to get over the withdrawls. A good week at least. I am so afraid from all that I have heard about withdrawls from medications and have been on oxycodone for 2 yrs now. If you go onto Drugs.com there is a section there that talks about withdrawls from narcotics that people write and how and what you should take to get over it from people that have been through it.

I have been on hydrocodone for over a year and if I don't take one at-least every 12 - 16 hours (whether my neck is hurting or not) I start having the withdrawals that are just as bad or worse than my injury. I can't wait to get these problems in my neck fixed so I can get off of these horrible yet needful pills. I am planning on trying a treatment of a drug called Suboxne treatment, from everything I have read that is the way to go, it's usually a six month program through a pain management doctor, other than that the withdrawals are pure hell so I know exactly what you are referring to so I wish you good luck with it. also ultram or tramadol (both the same) will also help with the withdrawals but if you must go cold turkey plan on staying in the house and near the toilet for about a week for the physical part then the mental part will last for up to a month or longer just kinda depends on the person. I always tell everyone I know if you don't absolutely have to have them then PLEASE stay away. I wish I had known this before I got addicted to them because I hate it so very much, I don't know whats controlling my life more right now the fact that I am injured and have no income and can't work or those damn pills. Good Luck to Ya.

GOINGCRAZY,
This post was back from 2008, but either way Thanks.
But as before I was slowly weened of by dosage, then on the smallest dose I then Just kept adding 2 hours and then 1 per day then every day, then none at all. That was the way I did it and when I went without it I had mild withdrawls and lasted about 4 days.... About 4 months ago the dr put me back on them at 5mg but wasnt strong enough and now I'm on 20mg er and I can take the 5mg or a vicodin when my pain flairs. I myself have complained to my dr about the oxxy, I cant stand the feeling from them, now vicodin I have no side effects when I take them... It is my goal and my dr to get me off the oxxy and am now set up to get a scs implant and if all goes well no more oxxy or at least a smaller dose....

I've been on Oxy for I think a little over 3 years now and my wife has been for over 4 years. If you forget to take it you notice it. I'm only on 20 but she is on 60

Oxy is the meds the surgeon put me on after the replacement.

I remember having conversations with myself while on this meds.
I was only on the meds for a few days and took myself off of it once I left the hospital.
