I too struggle with a dependancy to prescription pain medicine.
Hang in there – its going to be a tough time, however if you’re over the first part, you’re on your way.
Just know that people here are willing to help, any time of the day. Just try and get rest.

I take 1800 mg of neurontin (gabapentin) a day for the pain in my feet & hands. But my neuro thinks i should be taking 3600 mg a day for the amount of damage I have (but he also says I should never be walking either.) I take a half of Lortab as needed, which is at nite about 3 times a month. I guess I just am so used to the pain after 4 1/2 years & hate feeling all groggy during the day. I have never tried any of the others pain meds, maybe I should…
