Hi all. I am currently on day 4 of opiate withdrawal which is the 3rd time in the last 3 yrs I’ve found myself down this horrible road. It has stemmed from a back injury and I had got up to 80 mg a day ( sometimes more) and decided enough is enough as most mornings I was waking up sick until I had my pills. I researched the f#%k outta it this time as I’d been through it before and knew what I was in for. I must say Lyrica was a life saver aswell as some Valium and all the vitiams required to help the repair process. It hasn’t been easy but soooo much better than before. Plus I was ona higher dose than I’ve ever been on. These forams have helped emmensly as I didn’t feel as alone. My missis has never had any addiction so she can’t understand it. I have a high position at work and a family to look after, so I had to minimise the withdrawal as best as i could. Ressesless leg syndrome is the killer,(it will nearly drive you bats**t crazy)but the Lyrica truly helps all that including the anxiety( it’s not too hard to obtain from the docs )Be mindful although they will tell you it’s not addictive, believe me it is. ( been prescribed it in the past) so only take for the first week and lower doses on the 2nd week n stop. I would like to say to all my broos n sisters going through this horrible time, you will get better and get back to your self. So please hang in there. It will get better. I wish I could say I won’t go down this road again but f**k they seem to have a way of dragging you back once your through the WD it tricks your mind to thinking it wasn’t that bad and I will be careful this time. But believe me after a few weeks/ months you find yourself back in the same position. So fingers crossed. Keep it real peeps.
