The story of cheeps _ Oxy detox using sub.

Heroin, Pain Pills, Methadone are all opioids (aka opiates) and it just plain sucks or feels impossible to get off of any of them. Share about stopping, detox, or the desire to stop any of these.

The story of cheeps _ Oxy detox using sub.

Postby cheeps » Fri Sep 09, 2011 7:38 pm

Today I had my appt with the sub doc. I've had knee replacement and have been on vics for 6weeks, then surgery with a shitload of diluadid, oxy etc for 4 days... Then since around the middle of July I've been on 100-160 oxy a day....so that's 8 weeks of oxy.

So now it's time to get the fuck off of that. I chose to use a round of sub....hopefully short...maybe 2 weeks. Doc says to get started on a comfortable dose. He says we are dividing 8mg film pieces up and will only go up to what feel 'somewhat normal'. Stay there a week and then evaluate. He knows I'm NOT in it for the long run....

I hope 54 hours without oxy is enough. Last dose was today(Friday) at noon...but i cheated and took a double dose...i figured one last buzz. Good ole junkie thinking. Gave the rest to my mom. Will get sub at 10:30am Monday. The parents are here and know the scoop....they're just glad I;m getting off....so no problems there.

I have that methadone detox three years ago to blame for this....OH WELL! The gift that keeps on giving. :deadhorse:

He has given me clonidine, thorazine, and trazadone for the weekend. He said to play soft music and relax....LOL!! :shred: :shred: :shred: :shred: :shred: :cheers: :cheers: :blowme:

Good luck Sara!!

It always took me 3 days of feeling like crap to go from dope to Sub. Not full intense, but pretty damn shitty. All uphill from there. I hope you don't have any crappy days, just letting you know. I would lecture you on being damn sure not to take that stuff more than like 2 weeks, but you know :)

Be careful...real careful. IMHO, tinkering with Sub is like playing with fire. You'd better not do it a day past two weeks....and don't rely on the doctor's opinion cause they'll more than likely try to talk you into staying on it long term. After all...this website is named SubSux for a good reason.

Wait I'm confused, your last dose was Friday and you aren't going to get on Sub until Monday? By then you might as well ride it out... SAO's you only really need to wait like 16 hours should be fine, depending on how quickly intolerable w/d's develop. An oxy detox only lasts like 5-7 days, by 54 hours you are gonna be peaking :?

Well I detoxed 100mg+'s of hydrocodone a day and all 3 times it was peaked by day 3 (48-72 hours) and completely gone by day 7.

I attempted to detox a bundle+/day of Heroin and by 16 hours I was in such agony I was screaming for methadone....

Seems like once you are fully into the hump of 2 1/2 days of an SAO detox seems like a waste to throw them away to a Sub.

I'd honestly say Cheeps if you want my opinion by that point if you feel like you could survive another 3 or so days you should just hang in there. JMO. 7 days of w/d sounds like heaven to me at this point after all this neverending Sub and benzo crap.

Oh well that's 48 hours.. BUT I just realized, those are extended release.. you are supposed to take 'em every 12 hours is it? So really it's only like 36.. Or is it every 24 hours?

I don't know what day'll be the worst Sara, for me days 3-5 all equally sucked ass. But detoxing hydro, which for me was more enjoyable than oxy, no matter what the dose, was no comparison to a massive H habit or as I would imagine methadone, even just in intensity. I hope it goes well for you and you make it without the sub!! :kiss:

(I don't even know what day you are on, as how long do those controlled release pills last?)
