I'm scheduled for Thursday. I miscounted my meds and will run out Tuesday afternoon. I have been tapering them big time. I am so dreading this. I wish Thursday was tomorrow. Has anyone tried to stop Opana on their own? I've tried twice and failed by just tapering. I do have a chronic back problem. The MD I've selected to start the program with has a rather unique practice. He is a family practice physician as well as a chiropractor. He has a lot of alternative therapies in his practice and approaches pain in a different manner. Hopefully I can find a non-pharmacological approach. Like I said, I have been trying to taper this drug since Januray and just seem to be chasing withdrawal symptoms and used more than prescribed this month. I give up. The spirit is strong but the flesh is weak.
