Quitting Oxycodone with Loperamide- My story begins... - Part 214

  1. Hydro,

    Thanks for stopping in and posting. I have missed you a lot. I started this adventure with you and without your help I may not have suceeded. I am glad things are progressing well in your marriage. The trust will return. We all keep secrets from our spouses. I am glad you faced it and did the right thing for your boys. I am sure your life is crazy busy with 3 active toddlers. Focus on the future and leave the oxycodone behind where it belongs. Much love to you!!!

    Things are going steady in my life. Work is intense. I have about 12 hours of paperwork and lecture shit to accomplish today. I love being in a classroom. I do not love the prep.

    Pain manageable. Roaddog, I have chronic pain. It is not from loperamide. I never really had a loperamide problem. I had a pain and opiate problem. Loperamide did help me stop. I think if you use it and taper quickly it can be a useful tool. Problem is people are seeking a painless detox and get on this crap and stay on it. That is a big and dangerous mistake. I hope you feel better soon.

    Still tapering kratom. Feel fine. I go 14-15 hours overnight without it. Again, no high so I do not think this is too big of an issue. It helps some with the pain but of course it is no oxycodone.

    Hope you all have a great day!

    I wonder how Mel is doing. Has anyone heard from her?

    JD, I'm happy to hear that Kratom tapering isn't too awful! It just sucks that you are in pain. :(

    12 hours of paperwork doesn't sound like fun, haha! Hope you had an okay time with it.

    That really sucks about the combo of meds and insulin resistance affecting your ability to lose weight despite your honest efforts. That would be incredibly frustrating. I really hope you can find a combination that works for you and hopefully the longer you are off the high dosages of opiates, your endocrine system will start functioning a little more properly and aid in weight loss. Sounds good anyway!

    Have a great weekend!
