Do it w/ help: I'm glad that you'll be ending this medication, but don't just stop cold turkey w/out close monitoring. It can be very hard on your body so find help.

I took a 30mg prescribed oxycodone at 8am and need to drive at midnight, is this fine if I feel normal, or would the side effects still be there?

That is a large dose: and should only be given to people who are used to talking that large a dose (who have been on lower doses that are no longer working). While in most people the dose would be long gone, if you have been taking them regularly, and particularly if they are the long-acting form, they may still be having activity. Talk to your prescriber and/or pharmacist who know your history and conditions. ...Read more

I took oxycodone 560-100 mg daily. Detoxing 14 days now. Cold turkey. What makes the symptoms more tolerable? I'm dying here!

Not wise to do: While it's admirable that you want to remove opiates from your body, going cold turkey is never advised. Ideally, a slow wean over a few weeks, depending on how much your were on, along with some low dose Valium and/or catapres would allow you to feel better during the process. ...Read more
