So I have been taking pain meds since my accident in 2004, and I just get so scared of the long term damage that the drugs can do to my body. I want to stop taking them but am scared for two reasons. Number one, will these medications work. Second, I'm scared of the withdrawal part. I have gone through minor withdrawals and it was the worst thing I have ever had to go through. I just want to know if anyone has been in my shoes and has taken any of these meds. Anything will help!!
