Help I need advice on getting off oxycodone, I started using it for anxiety along with my clonazepam. now my docs trying to wean me off 50mg a day but im in so much pain. Any advice on helping to cope with side effects of this horrible drug?

im sorry i cant help you, i dont know enough about that, but you would maybe be better off posting this question in the Chronic Pain forum as many people are on it there and may have more experience and a better understanding of what you are going through.

sorry that im useless with the oxy, ive never used it- all the best,

Welcome to HealingWell!

Glad to meet you. I wish it was better circumstances although. The only advice I can give you is to keep letting you doc know how you are feeling and besides that I would try to stay in the moment and do some relaxing things that you enjoy doing to keep you mind off of the anxious feelings. I understand about pain driven anxiety because I have a costo (inflammation of chest/ribs) and it hurts so bad sometimes that I used to freak out. I took CBT and a few other relaxation techniques and this helped me learn to cope with those feelings. Where are you hurting/What is your illness?

Take care and I hope things get better for you!

Hi, there! I'm so sorry you're having this tough situation right now.

Does your doctor have a message center or an on-call office that you can contact with questions when his/her office is closed? If so, it may be possible to get your refill before Monday, but I know that also depends on the hours your pharmacy keeps over the weekend.

I'm sorry I don't know anything about chronic pain nor the oxycodone. I hope other members will be along soon with better advice.

Sorry you are hurting. I would suggest if your doc will give a call back to get ahold of him if an emergency or just going to the E.R. Hopefully you can relax and not need either, but that is up to you.

Good luck!

Hello and I am sorry you are going thru this as I was on Vicodin and my physician would have kept giving them to me but I realized I was liking the med to much so I taperd down and one day just took the rest and dumped then down the toilet............which I guess your not suppose to do anymore...Oops.

Here is a site that may help you but do work with your physician, you are not alone.  We are here for you.

I wish you peace,
