Quitting Oxycodone with Loperamide- My story begins... - Part 185

By Jungledog · Jan 13, 2015 · ·
  1. Hello everyone!

    Been stupid busy...yes, again. I have an enormous amount of lectures to put together. I narrate them and archive them so students can watch repeatedly. Plus making exams and interactive shit for the classroom. I want to get off the damn ride.

    Tomorrow is clinic day and sadly I am looking forward to the "break" from lecture prep. I was offered the full time faculty position. Happy with the salary and benefits plus I can choose to have the summer off although realistically I don't see that actually happening. As the administrator, I need to be there a few days.

    I am doing fine physically. Pain controlled with the kratom and this makes me quite happy. Yes, it tastes like shit. I honestly find it is easier to just toss and wash...then brush my teeth. Mixing it in shit just prolongs the agony plus it works better on an empty stomach. The Cymbalta continues to amaze me. Upped the dose today. I'll let you know what happens.

    Hope you are all well. Sorry I haven't been here as much. The next few weeks will be crazy for me. I will stop by when I can. Keep kicking ass folks.

    Survived yet another busy practice day. Tired tonight. Physically beat and mentally exhausted. Pain sucking too. :(

    Sorry haven't posted much on the nutrition needs but honestly just keeping my head above water. Off to tank up with clonidine and Cymbalta and drop off to sleep.

    Love to you all. Hope you are well.

    So sorry you're in pain JD. Please don't worry about nutrition posts right now. You have given us so much already.

    Well, I'm on Day 10 of oxycodone tapering. Started at 45mg now at 20mg. Totally on the edge today...took a tsp of Bali kratom and a couple 100mg of gabapentin. I don't like to take the clonidine during the day because it knocks me out but it's great for sleeping. Trying to drink lots of water and stay hydrated. I feel like I'm jumping out of my skin. Not sure what to do. I hate when that happens. Maybe I'll take another Gabapentin. :confused:

    For me, kratom lasts like 6 hours so try 1.5 tsp more often. It is easy to taper (for me). Go up on gabapentin. Try 1/2 a clonidine when it gets bad or valerian. And slow down the taper. Slow wins the race! You can do it!
