I have been on prescription pain medication for years—Hydrocodone, Oxycodone, Fentenol, Demerol—I’ve tried it all. This year I decided, I was done. I had enough. However, opiate addiction is hell.
I have researched and tried every pacifier from DXM to Kava. I recently was turned on to Wild Lettuce tincture. Skeptical, I thought “what the hell” and gave it a try. I purchased a cheap variety. It came in a 1oz dropper bottle. According to directions you are supposed to take ˝ to 1 dropperful and mix with 1oz of water.
Me being a cheapskate, here’s my preparation. I owned my own dropper bottle post-order. I pour half the tincture in another bottle, mix it the rest of the way with tonic water containing quinine and shake. I consume anywhere from two to four dropper’s full alone. And I gotta say: “WOW, what an experience!” This stuff really works. Ruling out placebo, I took it during a major withdrawal. Again…WOW!!! I felt mild euphoria, relaxed, even got the same side effects: pinpoint pupils, itchy nose, red face… Also, my knee and back pain became bearable. Yep, just like the real stuff.
