I've seen my doctor once a month and monitor everything all the time - I've decided that these pills have to much of a strangle hold over me, ever time i feel a slight pain in my head i take one, when it's a Awful migrain i take one... I've never taken the pills unless I've had pain... [br>[br>I'm currently taking 6 or 7 pills per day ( 5MG) each... some days it's only 4 pills ... the most is 8... [br>[br>I called my Doctor today and told him that I want to stop these pills and he said it's up to me as I've been diagnostic with Chronic daily Migraines.... [br>[br>So what should I expect? I'm stopping cold turkey next week... [br>[br>I have Clonnazapn ( I've been on it for 8 years) to help with any anxiety, I also have some sleeping pills due to not being able to sleep last year... My Doctor also called in a Script for me for some type of blood pressure pill to make sure stopping the OXI wouldn't cause medical issues.... [br>[br>Is there any advice for me? [br>[br>I want to repeat I've been on these pills on from my Doctor for a REAL pain issue for a year and a half and I've never taken a pill unless I'm in pain ( which is everyday).... I have NEVER crushed these, snorted these, injected these... NEVER [br>[br>my reasons are I would like to be off these for at least 3-4 months to evaluate how my normal pain relief for my migrians - my fear is that I'm having rebound migrians due to the normal use ...
