I have been on Opana 40mgx2 a day, Percocet 10/325x5 a day, Soma 375mg x 2 a day, Ambien CR 12.5 x 1 a Day, and Claritin. All of this for a couple of years. I am about to take a new job and am nervous about the Drug Test. All of these are legally prescribed drugs, but ones that could make a positive drug test. I have not abused any of them and take them as prescribed.
I have already started to reduce Opana even before this, so now I am at 20mg x 2 a day, and have 10mg's already.
So my choices are:
1 - Gamble on the Drug Test and hope it all works out
2 - Start now, Cold Turkey
3 - Try a 5 day Taper down:
Day 1 - 10mg Opana AM, 4 Percocet, 10 MG Opana PM
Day 2 - 10MG Opana AM, 3 Percocet, 10 MG Opana PM
Day 3 - 10 mg Opana AM, 2 Percocet, 10 MG Opana PM
Day 4 - No Opana AM, 2 Percocet, No Opana
Day 5 - 1 Percocet
Day 6 - Nothing
Will my taper work, has anyone done it that quickly?
My goal even before I started looking for this job was to get off all of the drugs, I am not confident to this day that I need them all anymore, but rather my body is dependent on them. I had a 3 level Lumbar Fusion in December of 08.
If I can't physically go without, I'll know that after being off them for a few weeks. Can always start up again after I start the new job. None of these drugs ever interfere with my job.
