Some days I only took 6mg Some days I only took 8mg. I only took 4 today. Please tell me that at twelve days in I can successfully jump off. I have mental illness to start with and this shit is NOT for me. Should I just jump and not look back or quickly lower the dose. I'm terrified. I knew this seemed wrong, I knew I just needed to go through opiate withdrawals. Someone please help. I'm a 40 year old mom of a 5 year old. Battled depression, anxiety, PTSD, OCD my whole life and I was a maintaining great. Hurt my back been on per share 2 years needed help getting off and bam they guinea pigged me. Please help. Thanks.
1st I am going to recommend you start your own thread regarding this.
At 12 days on sub you found us just in time! sub is actually a great detox tool, used for short periods...like 3 weeks. it's when it's used for maintenance that it becomes a big problem for many.
Anyways, 12 mg's is a MASSIVE dose. I would suggest you taper with sub over the next 2 weeks. Reduce to 2 mg's tomorrow, which is about equal to 100 mg's of morphine. and then taper from there over the n3xt 2 weeks.
Please re-post this in a new thread and you'll get lots of help. I'm so glad you found us now and not in 60 days. Like i said, this could be a good thing, if used right.
