Hi Anna and Steve,
Welcome to Healing Well. Well....I been there done that, got the T-shirt!!! Different drugs mind, but same rebounds daily!! I have got to say it's tough but well worth it in the end!! It did help that I changed from a Narcotic med to ibuprofen to help with the descent, but even the ibuprofen caused its own problems!!
Anna you have done so well, don't give up now!! You must be feeling some benefit already from reducing the vicodin. My Doc told me that I had to have at least 14 days clear to be fairly sure the drug was out of my system!! Like a chump I decided to go cold turkey - oh what a big mistake!!!!
Sounds like you have a husband that is very supportive. I don't take any over-the-counter meds at all now unless it is only for 2 days per month - this stops the rebounds, but you have to get it well and truly out of your system first!!! I have Imigran (Imitrex) injections to abort attacks!
Keep going Anna, and get rid of those last few painkillers, you will feel very much better for it!
take care Ann
