Ashley:

You are very brave to confront this. I think you should try to find a doctor to help you detox. I found a website that might help you locate one... turntohelp.com. You should also talk to a trusted family member or friend (one who has not participated in or facilitated your addiction). You will need that support and they can help you stay the course.

My prayers are with you.

It depends on how much you were taking and how often is going to dictate what the withdrawal symptoms are like.
I would suggest that you check the medhelp forums in the addiction community and they can help you with the withdrawal symptoms.
In the meantime, you might want to get some immodium for the diarrehea and some over the counter nausea medication.
You should be over the worst of the withdrawal symptoms in three or four days and then start to feel better.
Good luck with the withdrawal and I hope that you stay away from medication not prescribed to you.
