Taper off with medical advice. Enter DIABETES in the searchbar at www.mercola.com and eat in accordance with your nutritional type. Use other analgesics, like ibuprofen. Splash cold water on your face, when feeling sleepy. No daytime naps! Keep the volume of radio, TV, etc. up, to discourage nodding off. Minimise sugar, and white flour products. C(h)amomile tea of an evening; Valerian root before bedtime. As with all herbal/green teas, use lemon/lime, and/or a little sweetener (NOT ARTIFICIAL!!!) but no cream, or milk.
Xylitol, or Stevia is preferable, (health food stores) or fruit sugar (fructose, such as "Fruisana", from supermarket sugar aisles) or even a little honey, because these will reduce "sugar spikes", which later deplete you of energy. Minimise/eliminate consumption of highly processed foods, particularly grain products, such as white bread, donuts, cake, cookies/biscuits, or anything with sugar. Opt for more wholefoods, non-starchy vegetables, and fruit. Protein, such as bacon/ham, eggs, kippers, etc. taken on its own, or with very little carbohydrate, early in the morning, for breakfast, is known to provide a longer lasting energy boost, which doesn't have the depleting effect of simple carbohydrates, afterwards, that refined flour products, and sugar do.
Are you saying that if you don't take the oxycodone then all you do is sleep? Is the oxy giving you energy or something? You should really speak to your doctor about all of this, it sounds like you need something to help your leg but if the oxy is causing you problems then maybe he/she could prescribe you something else.
If you're looking to wean yourself off of Oxycodone then you should cut the amount you're taking in a 24 hour period in half for a few days. Then cut that amount for a few days...and do this until you're completely off the medication. You might want to consult your physician to ask if it's okay to wean yourself off the Oxycodone and to ask for something else for pain. Good luck.
You need detox to get off opiates. Theres noway to get off them urself. Plz beleive! When I say so. It is so uncomfortable and painful. it reallly sux. I was addicted to pain killers for 2 yrs and I tryed weening myself off and everything and it didnt work trust me when I tell you. You need to go to a detox facility. I hope you feel better soon and I hope I helped. Good Luck
