    There is a drug..I think the name is Subutex..that is supposed to help. But, slow weaning off works pretty well, you spread out the doses so that there are more and more hours inbetween doses till you can stop taking them all together. I imagine it will depend on the amount you are taking..and how long you have been taking the drug. Talk to your doctor..they should be able to help you.

    Thank you for your help.

    I forgot to fill them one time and it was a holiday weekend so no oxcy so I got very ILL .Was in the hospital dehydrated and IV also the gave me pain meds tru the IV .

    My gut hurt so bad from the vomiting I thought I would die.Oh well Ill see what she says.I sure do hope she has an idea for all my meds.

    One doctor is trying to get me free cymbalta.That one does help my pain and I pray he can get some.

    Thanks
