Withdrawal Ease Testimonials about Vicodin

“I would like to say Thank You for this wonderful product! I abused Vicodin on and off for about 2+ yrs. I went cold turkey a few times and wow, that was horrid. I ordered this product and after 3 days my life begin to get back on track in every aspect possible, love life, depression, anxiety… pretty much everything… This product didn’t cure all symptoms at once but made it easier to deal with them one hr at a time. I feel great today; just walked 3 miles and only have small aches that are equivalent to working out like I used to before Vicodin took my freedom. People this is an awesome product but you really have to want to quit for your own well being.”

“Our worse night was the night before we got the product. IT was BAD! He did not sleep. After he started taking the product he did sleep… overall he has been resting well. He seems to want to eat at night. The pain is not as bad as I thought it was going to be, he says it’s tolerable. Overall. I think it was a blessing to have gotten the Withdrawal Ease. I do think it has made a huge difference with his withdrawal and detox from Vicodin! The combo of herbs seem to really work well together and you are right, if we purchased them separately it would be way too expensive!”
