Doctor supervision: Good for you! But the best way to succeed is with a doctor's supervision. Also, begin Narcotics Anonymous Meetings for additional support. We cannot advise you on how to take these meds here. See the prescribing doc for instructions.

See your doctor : Stopping opiates if you are addicted is difficult. Being motivated is the first requirement. However it usually takes help. Make this attempt count! Please see your family doctor. If he doesn't have the time to help, he will refer you to an addiction medicine specialist. Good luck.
