I see my neurosurgeon next Thursday, but I was curious as to what some of you have done when you're weaning yourselves off the prescription meds.
when I run out of oxy 40's (extended release) I won't take any more. I only take one a day now. I then won't ask for a percocet refill (I take 2-3 a day). and then I plan to just take lortab 10's as needed. what would come after that? I would assume something over the counter? what would be allowed while I'm still fusing? I think Aleve is a no?
my pain level has decreased DRAMATICALLY since I began PT 2 weeks ago. wow I am feeling the best I've felt in a decade or so.
so... I'm thinking in a couple weeks I'll be off percocet for sure (I'll run out by then) and just on lortab 10's. and a muscle relaxer here and there and then lunesta at night til I don't need it.
I am taking a fraction of what I was like 3 weeks ago. I think my body has definitely felt the drop in meds. sometimes not in a great way. so I am definitely thinking weaning myself off is the way to go so I don't go thru funky withdrawal symptoms.
