okay, don't be mad at me guys but i got my script of oxy,s
the doctor gave me my script of oxy's i take 2 10mg twice a day, i take 1 gram of my kratrom,about 3hrs of my first dose of oxy's and it seems to make it last longer, he will cut me down to 30mg next month, and so too wean me off totally, but the kratom still seems like it takes the pain away and makes me feel better than the oxy's, we have to keep this a legal herb/leaf......cause in 3 months i am totally going to just be on kratom....i have signed on a petition to keep kratom legal,,,,and stop the DEA and FDA,,,from screwing us all up....i am sticking to this strict regime of oxy's no more than allowed, wich i have not done before last month when i ran out and found this wonder herb/leaf called kratom, i have come a long way down from taking 210 mg's or 240 i cannot quite remember, a day,,,,down to 40mg's a day,,mad max what do you think? should i continue or should i just quit the oxy's like when i ran out 2 weeks ago, and just take kratom, what is your take,......and please everybody else....Icannot remember every ones title, i would like input....i feel so ashamed right now for going back on the oxy's but i am pain dependent because of my back, and of course after 20yrs use i am addicted to this oxy crap...god bless everyone here and thank you for all the wonderful responses you have all given me......catspaw1955
It doesn't matter what we think. What do YOU think catspaw? That's all that matters. We're just strangers on the internet.
It sounds like you are the one who doesn't feel good about it and your seeking validation and for us to justify what your doing. You kinda went out of your way to explain why you felt the need to go back on oxy and don't sound very confident in your decision.
The ONLY opinion that matters is yours my friend.
I think your plan to ween yourself off of the oxys is a fine idea, as long as you stick to it. I went from lots of different opioids to methadone, then to suboxone, and then weened myself off of the suboxone with Kratom, and never looked back. It was a long road but was the right road for me. Do what works best for you. Sounds to me like you are already on the right path, just keep it up and don’t look back or turn around.
Ultimately catspaw1955...it is your decision.
It is definitely possible to use only Kratom instead of Oxy even at this point of 40 mg per day BUT you have to want to do it.
You have made a lot of good progress in decreasing your dose of opiates...WONDERFUL!
You now have a choice to continue with the taper OR switch over to Kratom.

Making the switch is not for everyone, catspaw1955.
You won’t find anything here but information and support! Judgement Free zone!
Have a wee bit better day!
i believe you are right, i feel like i let not just me but all of you,,,and yes i think too i was looking for someone to say it is all right, cause i feel guilty about it, i think i will stick to it this way, as i wean myself off the oxy's....thank you for your great input...god bless
thank you, that is what i am going to do,,and then just use kratom, cause it really helps me mentally, and physically , thank you for your input....god bless...
i think i will continue to wean off, it makes me feel a little safer, thank you so much for your reply bomalley....god bless you......
thank you laurie, and thank you so much for your support, i am going to continue to wean off, and to just be on the kratom then, i guess i am repeating myself on my replies on this post so please forgive me for that.. i just think all of you guys/gals are great on this site, love catspaw1955
FYI...I did a taper to get off oxy as well.
Once I was down to 10 mg per day I stopped completely, took only Kratom, and never looked back.
BUT I was never on high doses of oxy like you have been.
You should be proud of yourself for what you have accomplished so far.
BIG BIG pat on the back for you catspaw1955!
