I have been on Lorcet 10/650 for at least a couple of years and Vicodin 7.5/325 before that since 2004. I was finally sick and tired of of running out of Lorcet before it was time to get another refill. I admitted to pain management Dr. that I had cravings so he switched me to Tramadol for pain and Suboxone for cravings. I was off the Lorvet for 4 days and only had the jitters for a few days but he insisted that the withdrawal will start in a few days. I didn't know why he said that. I took the Suboxone and started having excruciating pain in hips and legs. In the next couple of days, the pain had progressed to crippling pain. i couldn't drive or work. my back and legs would get cramps and i would literally double up gasping and screaming. I had been like this for 2 weeks and had to rely on family to go to the store.
I was so freaked because i thought detoxing only consisted of the jitters for a few days.
the pain is starting to subside and i want to get back to work.
has anyone had this experience with withdrawals?
