Most effective way to stop pain medicine?
Are you going to say "See a doctor"??
I know that, but i just wondered how it is usually done?
I recently had to start taking 1-2 vicodins at night along with my normal Ultram to get to sleep, this has been about two months ago since starting on vicodin. This medication is so addictive its crazy. I thought the ultram was bad! Even while only taking 1-2 a day and i nor anyone else in my family has addictive personalities.
I have come to the conclusion that my severe pain is from me overdoing myself, so i recently starting to just do alot of nothing in my spare time and noticed that the rod pain will not increase much this way, this is good, but i have another problem...
Though i have many days now without the intense back pain, i will still find myself feeling like complete shit from the lack of the normal dose of pain medication, which is a sign i dependency i know, so i want to get off them without too much suffering, if that is even possible??
Say i take 4 ultrams a day, 6 hours in between each, what would be the method to get off of them? increasing the wait time an hour more every few days or just decreasing the dosage for each 6 hours i usually take them?
