i just posted about withdrawl symptoms in another post and i was curious. i have read numerous times about people who say they have a horrible time going through withdrawl. i have gone off cold turkey a few times and have tapered myself a few times and i have never experienced the bad side effects that others have reported. the worse part is diahrreah, sleeping problems, and a bit grouchy and grumpy all for about 3-4 days. i have never gotten sick and thrown up or muscle pain etc i have also worked for this time, i teach. am i the only one who has not had major problems with going off narcotics? i have been off and on for about 15 years. the worse part for me is the sleeping problems where i get really tired, go to sleep and wake up 2-3 hours later and not being able to get back to sleep, but no where like the frank sinatra movie, the man with the golden arm. am i the only one or are there others like me that withdrawl is no big deal
I have 4 fusions from L5-3, the latest last May '12 where they fixed my disc that broke.They went through my side this time. I take 40 mg of oxycontin 4x a day and 4 fenatyl lollipops 300 micro gms 4x a day.
