Taking oxycodne, lorazapan, wants to quit. Is there any side effect?

Hi I have been taking 20 mlg of oxycodne 5 times a day.. I want to quit cold turkey, I need to know the side effects please? How long will they last? I also take 2mlg of lorazapan 4 times daily.. I am so depressed, I know I can not stop the lorazapan cold turkey and will have to come off that med slowly.. But I am confused all the time. I try to hide it, but lost my marriage, a four year realationship, and I find I am so moody, cranky all the time.. The only time I feel better for a short time is when I take half a gravol, my oxy, and larazapan, then in 3 to 4 hours I am a mess again. Please help.. I know I can go cold turkey on the oxy, did it two years ago.. Please tell me how long I will feel sick, and what to do to help.. NO more drugs

My advice is that you seek professional help.It is important to stop all the medication, most of all the Benzo (lorazepam ) as this not only causes depression but maintains it.Stopping "cold-turkey" will last for 7 days , with the worst effect around day 3.Rather seek help.This requires a multi- disciplinary approach ,clearly you also need counseling.
