    •  Well, unless they renew my prescription... (7+ / 0-)

      ...I'll be going off it cold turkey in two or three weeks. That's why I'm trying to cut back on my usage: to gradually scale down so quitting won't be quite as difficult, and to make the pill supply last longer.

      And if they DO renew my prescription, that just puts the inevitable day off a bit (as I wrote above, I've been on the stuff for well over a year now). Which is why I'm looking at going "green" to help with withdrawal...

      •  Cold turkey is a very bad idea. Very. (5+ / 0-)

        I tried going cold turkey off a narcotic. After a week, went to my doctor. She and I worked out a six week taper down plan. Cold turkey: You will have difficulty making decisions. You will have headaches. You will have memory lapses. My doctor was thankful I don't drive.

        Please make an appointment to see the doctor, or call their office. No responsible doctor would have anyone cold turkey a narcotic.
