ok so i hurt my back for the first time on jan 17th. went to the ER and was admitted. they had me on dilaudid and robaxin. dilaudid was discontinued on jan 22nd. then i was on ibuprofen and robaxin until the 26th, when i was given tramadol. on the 30th i was given 10/325 percocet and was taking that 4x a day for a week, after which i cut it down to 1 or two per day depending on the pain.
so it's now feb 16th at 4 am and i've been up since 1am with a severe headache (which i usually get when i sleep with the window open, which i did do this time) and nausea (which is new). my last percocet and robaxin was at around 5pm last night, so 11 hours now.
my question is... have i been on it long enough to have become addicted? have i been taking it often enough to be having withdrawal?
i traditionally havent had issues stopping meds in the past. i used to be on klonapin and i didnt take that as often as i was supposed to, and i had a surgery in september which had me on percocet for about a month, and i didnt experience any nausea when stopping then, and i also stopped before the bottle ran out, though those were 5/325 pills.
