Can i take vicodin with xanax

Common Questions and Answers about Can i take vicodin with xanax


I usually don't take the vicodin until about 4 or 5 pm. I take 2 tablets at that time and then maybe later will take another. Then i take a 1mg Xanax to help me sleep at night. I would usually start the withdrawal symtoms around 2 or 3pm but force myself to wait until after work to take the vicodin. I quit the vicodin cold turkey 4 days ago.
Oh, wow, i don't want to do this for a year. and i am really thinking it is the xanax w/d not the vicodin any more. i can live with it, but oh i don't want to for a year. yuck! they say the half life is very short and you can feel w/d's even before your next dose. i really think my w/d symptoms in the afternoon through out the evening are from the Xanax. They just get worse until i take my little more than 0.5 Xanax now(was on 1mg) before i go to bed.
no the rest of your life wont always be like this, it will get better day by day, one day at a time (be careful with the xanax) i am on my 9th week and still having some difficulty, i am also taking xanax and 80 mg. of doc told me she wants me to switch anti-depressants, maybe you should check into whether prozac is working for you. there are other anti-depressants that work better for addictions symptoms and anxiety, i am hearing alot about cymbalta...its worth asking your doc.
she is on a cocktail of anit-depressent drugs , and she recently went to the dentist and he gave her vicodin for pain , but she has been taking about 4 a day now and she she just got a refill of 30 more and now she is asking me if i can give my old vicodin that i have from a few months back from my dentist i never took the stuff, her parents do not know about her abuse and she does not want to tell them or her friends .
Won't sleep well, will probably have restless leg syndrome. Google it. Personally, I can't taper. If I have them, I take them, even knowing what's coming. Maybe if you will hold them for him he'll have a chance? After having gone through this several times, someone turned me on to methadone. I take one 10 mg after the symptoms appear. One has actually been all I needed at times, but usually I'll take one for 3 or so days.
Dear Moon Leaf, I was addicted too. I know how you feel. I felt the same. I started with Vicodin & it progressed. I would take anything that was Codiene based. This started 5 years ago. It does make you happy Hell it makes you feel Great! But since I stopped all my true feelings came back. I am so much more HAPPY. I had to go into a treatment center to detox it took 7 days.
I have been reading some of the comments and I feel kind of stupid asking a question that's sort of been asked a million times, but how do I cope with life while I am going through withdrawal? I have been on vicodin for a year, and this is the first time I haven't had any, and I imagine the awful flu I have isn't really the flu. I have to cook tomorrow and act like everything is fine, but it isn't and I don't know what to do. Please help me.
The results are just in from my MRI. I have five degenerated discs along with two bulging discs. I take the Vicodin about every four hours now. The good thing about the Clonazepam is I don't wake up in four hours to take a Vicodin. When I do wake up though I'm usually hurting pretty bad. So, the bad part is I've been double dosing of Vicodin when I wake up. I know I'm not doing the meds the way I should but, at this time I'm too weak to try and stop.
Hello, I am new at this so bare with me. I was prescribed Xanax when I was 20 years old, for severe panic attacks, I am 42 now. The Doctors kept raising the dosage over the years because it would just stop helping, they said the correct dose just wasn`t regulated for me yet, that was 22 year ago, by the time I was 27 they had me on 2 mg four times a day, total of 8 mg of Xanax a day !!
I'd like to understand what you're saying. When I do, I usually learn something interesting. Take me along with you.
the doc wants ,to take it along with my celexa. i am on the max dose of it. she wants me to get me calmed down so i can wean off the vicodin. i am very afraid of this drug. but i know docs are using it with antidepressants to help with depression. so maybe it will work. all i know is that i need to get off the vicodin bad. i take 3 ,10mgs of it a day . it used to make me happy but now it is causing me to to have panic atttacks and terrible ddepression.
The thing is though there is no way I can take it 3 times a day. Hell I take one .5 mg pill and it knocks me out for hours, then when I do wake up I am really groggy and fog headed. I guess I was just wondering what you felt and how did you function on such high doses of xanax?
Hi everyone, well I found out that my son is doing xanax but I started investigating how you can get high on xanax and I didn't know so I found out that he is snorting it I just don't know how you can abuse xanax can some one help me with this one please?
The withdrawals suck on the vicodin. But I hope I can beat this. I want to know if there is anyway that there was something natural I could take to help with sleeping,twitching,anxiety,crying and all that jazz. Please help I'm scared.

I am a chronic pain patient who doesnt abuse drugs, I use either Darvocette or Vicodin low dosage, plus I take Xanax for anxiety .In a proper dosage will this be okay together I dont take Darvocette but one day then next day Vicodin 5 by 500.
I have quit before and have been thru the withdrawls. I know I can do it again I just need some support. None of my family and friends understand what its like. I just need some positive words and maybe some advice from someone who has been where I've been, as far as how many vicodin and other things I'm taking. I know I'm numb and its not true happiness. I know I'm probably on the verge of losing my life.
I'm posting this to talk to people going through the same thing that I am, and share my experience's with them. If there is anything I can do to help anyone with any information or if anyone can share information that can help me, it'd be awesome. Withdrawals are the worst thing in the world, and I wouldn't even wish them on my greatest enemies. Our health is our lives, literally! So we (the drug users) should really take that into account.
I think it depends on alot of things I think the problem might be with the xanax though I dont have much experience with them but I have heard that people can become hooked on them pretty fast I think the vicoden probably needs more time to give you withdrawal but you didnt say how much of the Vicoden u were taking a day?
I have been taking vicodin for the last month of my pregnancy. I am currently 20 weeks pregnant. Before this, I was clean and sober for the first 4 months of my pregnancy. My friend offered me some vicodin and now it has turned into a daily thing. I don't know if the baby will be ok, since they say it is a class c drug and no links to birth defects have been found. I asked my doctor and they said they sometimes perscribe vicodin to pregnant women. Could anyone help me answer this question?
If I was you, I would tapper off. I didnt take pills, but I smoked, and the Dr. said it was best I tapper off those, than to just stop. Stopping cold turkey would stress my body and cause stress to the baby. I am on pain pills now, I am 17 weeks pregnant, and will be on them till I have the baby, Our plan is to tapper off in the last month or so, so the baby isnt addicted. I am on pain manigment due to hernia that is tearing.

I have a few questions that I hope someone can help me with... Here is my store... My husband and I have been taking vicodin for about 3 years. Anywhere from 2 -5 pills (10mg/325) almost night after work (Very rarely did we do more than 5 pills). I have quit on several times for a few weeks sometimes months. The last time I quit I went to my Dr. told him about my dependence and he prescribed Xanax. I followed the amino acid protocol that has been posted on this board and acupuncture.
well if you can take a clonipin or a xanax, if you can get any they seem to help me with that, if not try tylenol pm it might work, i think you get those b/c lack of potassium maybe try to eat more bananas during the day also, but it might still happen, i think it is one of the suckiest w/d symptoms that you sometimes just gotta deal with
Hi, I am in the middle of detoxing from vicodin. I already know what to expect with this. However, I finally admitted to myself that I am addicted to xanax as well. I have been taking it on and off, (mostly on) everyday for about 2 years. Usually it is .25 mg, but I have been taking up to 2 mg lately, ever since I decided to quit the vicodin. I am not feeling right, and I am finding that I am starting to really crave the xanax. So I want to stop taking it too.

GODS BLESSINGS on you for trying!
I also take Xanax, ecept I have been taking it for many years, I stopped when I went to detox for Vicodin, and started again yesterday (my 11th day without Vicodin) for anxiety. I have been taking Xanax for about 9 years and have never had an addiction problem with it - I got pregnant 3 years ago and just stopped with no withdrawals, i did not even know it was addictive because I never was. Is it the dosage? I take .
I'm taking xanax to help w/ vicodin withdrawl. I break it into 4ths and take 1/4 throug out the day, and 1 bar to help me sleep. Please don't tell me that I'm going to go through w/drawls from this drug too! does this always happen?
