    But yes you are having withdrawals from the lower dose, it should go away or get better in about 4 days. Hang in there it'll pass

    Sorry just re read your post, it could take a few weeks to feel normal again...maybe try and find another doctor and tell them what's going on
    L5 s1 degeneration, annular tear and bulg with nerve compression. Dr says its normal wear and tear lol
  • You shouldn't be feeling only minimal withdrawals if you were being tapered correctly, which your obviously not. I'd call the doctor immediately and let him know waht's going on with your withdrawals. It's not fair for you to be in this situation, and something needs to be done about it. go to the ER if the doctor can't or won't help you. There are things that can help you. The person who posted about taking immodium, etc. gave you great advice for doing it yourself, but the Er, and your doctor have other tools at their disposal. GOOD LUCK.
