Unhappy Starting a taper and scared

I should know what I'm in for, a DR prescribed me 40mg methadone and 32mg hydromorphone when I was opiate naive. I had never taken anything other then vicodin for a tooth being pulled. It was the worst cold turkey that landed me in the hospital. Fast forward now i'm on Vicodin and low dose fentanyl patch and starting a taper.. Praying to God it won't be as bad as last time.. Well that's my story and I'm sticking to it

Hi Rhino - welcome

I'm not sure by your post if you've seen a Dr this time or not, but I'd keep that as an option if you ended up in hospital last time.

You'll find a lot of support and advice here, and in our substance abuse forum too
