I'm sharing this for anyone else that is looking for info. I've been reading this site for years, and ready to contribute if I can.
Sparing my whole story... I ended up on about 170-200 mg oxycodone, snorted preferably, or same dosage of OxyContin, bitten and chewed. I decided to cold turkey, even though I have plenty Oxy left. I am NOT taking them.
My BEST piece of advice is to PREP with your OTC meds (Imodium, Tylenol or DayQuil/NyQuil, potassium, read the revised Thomas Recipe and GET everything on it!!! Wish I had got the L Tyrosine, my drug stores did NOT carry, but said you could older online), also have Valium, Xanax, or at least relaxants/sedatives from health food store, and have a couple days to LAY around. Get ANY exercise you can while going through this, even a shower or 2 minute stretch is hard at first- but it helps!!! Also: SUPPORT. Family, AA, therapists. Long term plan to STAY off.
