I have some other recent threads out there that tell of my current attempt to get clean of opiates after about a year of being on pain meds finally culminated in a 2 week Opana Binge doing 100mg Oxymorphone per day.
This thread is really about something different. This is the morning of day 6 since last using Opana. I have been tapering with hydrocodone, 140mg down to 60mg over those 6 days. Its barely keeping me going, I crash a lot, but it has kept severe w/d at arms lenghts for now. I am at my last few, and I intend to CT after my last dose this afteroon. I have a few things I need to get done before going down.
Here is what this thread is about. As normal I woke up in the middle of the night with w/d setting it. For me, its the skin crawlies first, extreme sensitivity to temperature, aches, and miserably wide awake. So as I normally do, I grab a dose of hydro and down it. I have been using 25 or 30mg as my "wake up and feed the beast" late night/early morning dose. Half hour later or so, I start to calm and finish out my rest.
Well, last night was a little different. Since I only have 5 hydro 10s left, when the beast came calling right on time, I only fed it one 10mg, but I also took a couple swigs of robatussin DM with DXM. Here is the kicker. Its the best 'post Opana' sleep I have had. This morning I am up early and almost feel normal, like I could go to work. But we won't be trying that just yet, since I have been crashing at any moments notice and I still have to go CT over the next week.
What I am asking is, what just happened with the DXM? Someone in another thread said to try it, but left no other info.
Do you think I am just getting over the Opana, since its been 6 days now ?
Or can I use the DXM and expect it to help during my CT?
I am trying to pair out if this DXM will be useful during w/d or maybe its just that the heaviest use is 6 days behind me. It sure seemed to help last night. What do you all think?
