After 5 years of taking less meds then prescribed I started showing signs of addiction. I work in the mental health field and recognized the signs. I asked my doctor to reduce my meds and this month have gone totally non narcotic with Lyrica and Tramadol. It is not working. My quality of life is getting worse. I have had to cancel a fishing trip I take annually for 30 years and a monthly activity as well. I could ask my wife pass my meds daily but I am not sure if she will do it since while I was taking more than prescribed it impacted her and she thinks all opiates are bad. I am at a loss. Any suggestions?
