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.

- •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.
