you think the oxycodone is cause ALL of your issues?! I hope for your sake that's true, because if it's the case, it would mean you'll feel great after the effects go away.
I guess you missed the bits where I said: Depression is not a new thing to me. It is something which first struck when I was 13.
and:But cannot blame any drug entirely: it only brought to the surface long-standing sadnesses and regrets that already existed.
So I'm repeating them for your benefit <_<.
In seriousness, no, I don't the oxycodone is the cause of my issues, I just think it had made what would already have been a difficult time even worse - in the short term, eg right about
now, possibly much
worse, but of course I don't know how I'll be in 6 months.
@Another UC Wife - This time it's too late for me, but if ever I have to go on a strong opiate for longer than a few days again, I'm going to insist on a tapering schedule. Heck, a referral to a pain management expert if I have to. And I will check back to your previous post, too.
@rdm - Percoset is basically oxycodone, am I right? I wasn't addicted in the psychological sense of craving
the drug, but I think that could have happened. I certainly suspect I would've caved in and taken some oxycodone during the worst of my withdrawal symptoms if there had been some around, but there wasn't. But I obviously developed a physical dependency to the drug to the extent my body b****ed about
it big time when it was withdrawn.
It doesn't altogether surprise me, since I have weird reactions to most drugs. I either seem entirely resistant to them (yes, Remicade, I'm thinking of you) or entirely intolerant to them (the 5-ASAs, most SSRIs, etc.) Pred is one of the few drugs I have a 'normal' reaction to, eg it works like it should and I'm not rendered more ill by taking it.
