MY DOC was Oxycodone, usually the 30's.
But Vicodin and percocets of all milligrams were acceptable substitute.
How much I took depended on how much I could take due to availability and finances.
If able to, I would take 15mg Oxy every 4-6 hrs. I have always been super sensitive to any kind of drugs.
I get high from one hit of weed, or drunk of two glasses of wine etc.So when I have no tolerance to opiates, 5mg gets me high and 7.5 is too much and will make me sick. So I've been building my tolerance for a while.
But I was not on a high amount comparatively to many ppl on this forum. Everyone's body chemistry is different.
Why now? Well, it's not sustainable. I can't afford it financially, but also, using it as a crutch and band-aid
to cover up other things I don't want to deal with is counter-productive. It used to help me with PTSD and anxiety, but now it have little effect at the dosage I take so it's either quit or advance to a higher dose and either ride that all the way out, or having to deal with the detox when it will be much harder down the line.
I choose now and life.

Well, first 48 hrs are over! I was miserable, but time did go by quicker than I expected.
So maybe I'm half way out of the worst of the physical part. For me the emotional part is def.
a bigger challenge though.
Besides all the detox symptoms I remember (but milder) than the c/t detox I did 10 years ago
(from a higher dosage from around 250 percocets/24hrs) this time I've noticed that my pee
smells really yucky, like plastic and synthetic materials. Gross. I think it could be because I am eating
a lot of detoxing foods and take some supplements to speed up the detox and healing process. I'm a lot
healthier and more connected to my body today than I was 10 years ago so that probably plays into me
noticing it now but not back then.
My thread is pretty lonely.

72 hrs. Thought I would feel better by now. I do not.
Thanks for the overwhelming support though, lovely people!
Wish you the best for you as well.
