Dear Mr Vivian it is not at all hard to get rid of spasmoproxyvon.
Spasmo-Proxyvon contains the active ingredients Acetaminophen, Dicyclomine and Propoxyphene, it is used to treat pain, fever and muscle spasms.
The addictive ingredient in this is Dextroproxyphene, which is a mild opioid analgesic. Other stronger agent in this group is MORPHIN, HEROIN etc. so withdrawl symptom includes-
1. Excessive sweating
2. Muscle pain, Cramps , Abdominal Pain
3. Anxiety , fear
4. High BP
5. Diarrhoea etc.
At first you have to stop this drugs and then your withdrawl symptoms can be managed by using an opioid antagonist. After this a maintainance theraphy with milder opiod agonist can be started and then you have to reduce its dose very slowly. Thats all you have to do. But above all you have to keep strong determination only that can help you strongly in this. Many people have done this and you also can do just keep this in your mind.
For actual drug dose and formulation please consult a nearby physician. He will certainly help you in this matter.
Best of Luck.
