    Thinking of talking to MD to stop pain meds but...

    1
    Four years ago I was sent to a Pain Clinic with the goal of getting pain under control to start working again. I am 63 now.  I was prescribed 20 mg OxyContin a.m., 10 mg at bedtime, with 4 mg hydromorphone up to 4 times a day as needed. I have never had the desire to take more, nor have I ever taken more. My pain has never been completely under control either and I'm still on a heating pad most...

    Suboxone?

    I am on the suboxone program and it seems to work great. I have noticed though, that i keep hearing about how people are on it and not really known anyone who has tapered off and has complete sobriety. If there are people please let me know, how did it go and how long? I know everyone is different. It would be nice not to be depended on anything. Its not an option i guess right now, don't...

    Opioid addict...

    2
    I feel like I am tearing my family apart. I have been prescribed oxycodone and morphine for over 2 years now and I just started abusing it. I realized that my body has such a high tolerance for it, I can take 5-6 oxy or 3-4 morphine and barely feel it. I know that it can kill me, but I ran short last month, and I felt the withdrawals. I'm not afraid to admit that I have a problem, but one of my...

    I abuse my Ritalin.

    0
        I abuse my Ritalin, but I'm not addicted.  I get my Ritalin filled every month.  I use the Ritalin for about a week, till it's gone.  Then I have to go without for like three weeks till I can get it filled again.  In those three weeks, there's no withdrawal or cravings.  It reminds me of when I did coke, I'd get an eight ball on the weekends & was fine in between.  I can't go off the...

Never touched him! What set off the nightmares? I saw Deadpool and watching all the humiliating groin kicks happening only to men (the movie must have...

    I have struggled with panic attacks and anxiety for several heads now and 2 years ago was prescribed.5mg Xanax daily (in addition to an antidepressant). I would take one each night and 1 1/2 if I was having a panic attack (rarely lately). I have made great progress so last week I decided to taper myself off Xanax. I am terrified of the possible withdrawal symptoms. I know it's a small dosage but...
