Tips for Stopping Oxycodone I was taking 1,600mg every day, in addition to pregabalin and tramadol. I'd been taking it for about 10 years for fibromyalgia / chronic acute myofascial pain syndrome. I decided to stop taking it on 24.12.16 and took my last capsule on 12.02.16. These are my tips on how to stop taking massive doses.
  1. Be resolute. Nothing in your life will ever be harder than this. If you're not resolute, you will fail. There is a lot written about being resolute in philosophy, religion, history and business. It is a common theme in success stories.
  2. Don't be dissuaded by the enormity of the task; take it one hour at a time if you have to, but make a change. Be courageous, be committed, be resolute.
  3. Make no exceptions. From the very start, you should know that each time you make an exception, you are giving yourself a setback. Don't let anyone persuade you otherwise; there are no exceptions.

  1. Know that there is no way that you can live an emotionally fulfilling life while taking massive doses of opiates.
  2. Look around and see how many of your relationships have been lost or ruined since you started your journey of taking opiates.
  3. Recognise that your life has started to revolve around taking medication and that you have hijacked the lives of your loved ones in the same pursuit

This is a list of things I would have told myself about Oxycodone 12 years ago, if I had the chance to. I've been a chronic insomniac from my earliest memory; 5 - 15 /week. After a car accident, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Drug treatments started and as the pain got worse, the opiates started. I ended up taking 1,600mg of Oxycodone per day.
  1. If the condition you are experiencing is not life threatening or VERY short term, DON'T consider taking any opiates
  2. If you are generally 'drug resistant' or sedative medication isn't usually effective on you, DON'T consider taking any opiates because - next point
  3. When you start to take opiates, the period of time in which you have to start taking bigger doses or stronger drugs, is very short
