OK so now that I am in the clear and sure that there will be no "Piper" so to speak to have to pay, meaning I am clean and have detoxed successfully, I would like to share my story on how it can be done with zero pain, zero withdrawals, great sleep, and all around pleasant experience. Yes, I am aware I may come off sounding like a snake oil salesman, but I don't really care, I am telling the truth, PEOPLE, listen! There is a way to come off of opiates and still function absolutely normally with zero distress, here is my story/ how to do it.
I had been using pain meds, heavy usage for 3 years for chronic back pain. My drug prescribed was hydrocodone, 10/325, 128 per month, which I would often, most always I should say, supplement with oxycodone, dilaudid, dhc, codeine, basically anything you can thing of I have supplemented with, adding up to a pretty large addiction I would say.
As some of you know, I have heavily promoted gabapentin (Neurontin) on this forum, this is part of my detox plan. I think gabapentin is a key part, and for some can reduce the w/d's up to very high percentages, but for zero discomfort, this is what I did. Gabapentin can also be substituted for Lyrica (pregbalin), but smaller doses will be needed, note that lyrica is much more powerful than gabapentin, so dosage will be different.
AFTER STOPPING OPIOIDS/ OPIATES
Day 1 8mg suboxone
Day 2 8mg suboxone
Day 3 4mg suboxone
Day 4 3mg suboxone
Day 5 I say to hell with it and jump onto the gabapentin(1,200mg 2x a day and at night), and I take some benzos.---->caution, may be extremely drowsy, benzos only if you feel you need them.
Day 6 gabapentin (and lots of it! doses at 1,200mg 3x day), benzos----> may be very drowsy use caution
Day 7 done,some benzos (just in case)
Day 8 no withdrawals I am done with the detox.
note: I also excercized and sweat each day and continue to in my post detox plan
This worked like magic for me and I am convinced it can work like magic for YOU as well. Doses on all the above medications can and should depend on many factors such as your habit size, your body weight, height, etc. etc. But you should get the basic idea from my detox plan. On the gabapentin, for it to work, you will have to take allot of it no matter your size or weight (this is my opinion) and I believe 900mg is the lowest dose to really have a great effect at knocking out any residual withdrawal.
Afterwards you will need to find time to occupy the time you spent thinking about pain pills, etc. Get into new hobbies, get busy, and exercise, exercise, exercise!!!
If anyone has any questions, needs support, anything at all feel free to P.M. me. I can help. I am not a doctor, but have helped countless people to get off opiates when they truly thought it was an insurmountable mountain to climb and were desperately afraid. You do not have to suffer through withdrawal, there is a way to detox that is pain free.
