Quitting Oxycodone with Loperamide- My story begins... - Part 2

By Jungledog · Oct 24, 2014 · ·
  1. Thanks for the support Golddust. I appreciate it, really. I know I will need this to get through.

    Yes, I read Roaddoggy's whole thread. Actually I left him a note on his new thread to tell him that HE was the reason I decided I could quit for good. His determination and attitude are inspiring. I know loperamide is not a great drug to detox from but for me I have no trouble tapering it. Can't taper oxy for my life. I have been using loperamide to maintain most months for awhile now anyhow so I am already screwed. Figured only way out is to just wean slowly. Kratom simply did not hold me well and I always felt in constant withdrawal.

    Are you tapering too? Do you have a journal too that I could read?

    Again, thanks for your support. I hope I can return the favor. :thumbsup:

    Dear Jungle dog,

    Yes, Road doggy has been a great inspiration to so many, including myself. He just keeps going. Wish I could have that strength of mind.

    I am currently off Valium 7 weeks, and I didn't get to taper slowly. It has been ruff (lol). No seriously, there really is not description lt is getting better, but lack of sleep has been the worst problem.

    I don't have my own thread yet, mainly because it is so hard to type on any site using a phone, although I might still try it.

    After what I went through with the Valium and the insomnia I am still suffering with, I must admit I am terrified to quit pain medicine. But I am trying to gather up the courage to do it here.

    How is it going for you right now? I am not working right now and admire your ability to work and taper like you are doing. Are you sticking to a specific schedule or are you listening to your body? I will continue to read your posts and try to be there every step of the way.
