    what are the steps to take to detox from medications, etc. i think i need to do this as i've been taking (2-3) 500 mg vicoden's daily, (2) 50 mg lyrica daily, (1) 20 mg prozac daily, and vitamins (magnesium, multi, B-6, and calcium) for at least three to four months straight. The only thing that varies is the vicoden (sometimes less/sometimes more). i think i need a break, but am unsure of what to do. if possible, would someone forward a list. i appreciate this so...much.

    do you mean you want to reduce your vicoden for awhile? i would think your doc should help you. i know when i weaned from narcotics my doc recomended reducing by no more than 1/4 of the dosage every three days, but then increasing it slightly if i started having withdrawal symptoms, yawning, sleepy feeling. this worked for me. blessings to you. jen102

    You might also take some liver and kidney support products, if you are not already doing so. A search should turn up more information.

    You should not cut back on or quit any prescription medication without your physician's knowledge.
