    I AM CURRENTLY PRESCRIBED A HIGH DOSE OF OXYCONTIN- 80MG, 30 MG ROXICDONE, AND 2MG XANAX A DAY 3 TIMES A DAY... I STARTED TO INJECT HEROIN WHEN I RUN OUT OF MY MEDICATION. I TRIED TAKING A SUBOXONE AND I GET VERY SICK.. CAN I GO COLD TURKEY? I NEVER HAVE BEEN IN REHAB SO I'M NOW KNOW THAT IT IS VERY HARD TO GET OFF THESE DRUGS WITHOUT HELP

    Going cold turkey is not recommended. In all likelihood you will get very sick and probably launch a full blown heroin addiction. Rehab is the way to go.
