Hi. I am joining the group to find support and maybe some answers. I think I am addicted or becoming addicted to my prescription pain med, percocet. I am taking percocet for a chronic back condition. I have been on percocet for about 3 years now. I have been getting the feeling lately that I HAVE to have them. It scares me. I have taken more than prescribed, on occasion. Like in the middle of the night, if I wake up and am in pain, I take an extra pill. I have been getting the feeling lately that if I run out of pain meds, I might have a problem. Like I said, it scares me sometimes. I have made a few phone calls to help get me off percocet, but it is saturday and no one is in the office. I guess I'll have to wait until monday to get the ball rolling on treatment. But, until then, just coming to this group has given me some comfort. If I do have an addiction to these pills, I want to take care of it quickly, before it becomes a HUGE issue in my life. Thank you for having me in this group. I welcome any advice or any words of wisdom.
