A member asked:

How to tell whether its withdrawal or pain from an actual condition? i'm getting off of my meds, xanax & neurotin (daily) and percocet 325 as needed. i am so weak and in pain- weaning off first two and no percocet at all since it was only as needed.

Need more info: More details are needed. How much of Xanax (alprazolam) and Neurontin were you taking prior to the wean? How fast are you weaning? When you say you were taking Percocet "as needed," how frequently were you doing so? Are you doing this on your own, or under the guidance of your physician? Are you on any other medications? Make sure you are being monitored by your doctor(s) closely.
