Common Questions and Answers about Can you take percocet and xanax

percocet

She has also taken 1 gram of Xanax. Is that safe? Can you take the both together? She is a very good friend of mine and I really just want to make sure she's going to be ok. They're typically low doses, but 2 different pills at the same time. She took the gram of Xanax about 15 minutes ago, I tried to talk her out of it, but being a recovering addict myself, I guess my advice is worthy for her. Please can someone tell me if this combination is ok?
Two weeks after she had her lung drained, she admitted herself to hospital and again they had to drain her lung, this time she was in hospital for 16 days because they took 10 lbs of fluid off her lung within the first day and she continued to drain until they finally went in and got to a couple of pockets of fluid they couldn't reach and after that they closed her up, removed the drainage tubes and sent her home with more percocet and the xanax...now the cough has come back.
Maybe that's why you came here in the first place. I hope you see what's helping others and realize that you can get well if you want to. I am not an addict but I had some horrible opinions of who they were and why... I was just in the darkness... now I know it could happen to me too. This helps me to better understand our human condition and also my wonderful daughter. Good luck to you.
If you want your life back, you must TAKE it back, yourself. God is watching and cheering you all the way. I am here for you and don't become humiliated. This is where God wants you to be...asking for help and scared. You have a choice. Good luck and hang on, as the next couple of days could be bad.
w/d's last bout 5 to 7 days. You can take valium but only at night to help you sleep and only for about 4 day or you will be back in the same boat you are trying to get out of. How many are you taking? 16 days not very long you should w/d quicker T.
I HAVE HEPATITIS C, TOOK TREATMENT AND WAS A COMPLETE RESPONDER, IN REMISSION FOR 6 YEARS. I INJURED BOTH LEGS AND HAVE BEEN ON PERCOCET 10, XANAX AND ALSO BP MEDS. I WANT OFF NOW! I HAVE TEENAGED BOYS WHO NEED ME NOW. I NEED AND WANT MY LIFE BACK. PLEASE HELP ME! HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE AND HOW BAD WILL I FEEL TO GO COLD TURKEY OFF PERCOCET? I HAVE BEEN ON IT FOR APPROX 2 YEARS. WHAT ABOUT THE XANAX? I AM SO SORRY TO READ EVERYONE'S STORIES...
I have followed the thomas recipe before and am using xanax. Can I take a soma 350 at nite to sleep for insomnia? Thanks so much?
The Valium is used basically to calm you and allow you to get some sleep, so the xanax would probably be ok. BUT A WARNING; Use these as little as possible, only as needed for a short time. They are a Benzo and addictive. If you use to much for to long, you'll get hooked on that and you cannot, under any circumstances go cold turkey with a benzo due to seizures and death. So if you use the xanax, use it spareingly and not for a long time, a week to 10 days.
This CanHelp bozo seems akin to an ambulance chasing lawyer. How tacky, even if (and that's a big IF) this clown is legit the fact he is plugging his suboxone clinic here to try and generate some dough is distasteful and plain tacky. And I agree, there are tons of people who have tapered off of percs. To say it can't be done is wrong..you think a "doctor" would know better. And Xanax as prescribed can be extremely helpful in the early days of detox.
Hang in there--you'll get through this, but it may take a little longer. Can you take some time off work? Perhaps the doctor who prescribed the pills can give you something else to ease the w/d. Give him/her a call.
These people on here helped me so much. I'm 25 days clean from Xanax and 13 days clean from pain meds. If I can do it I know u can!!! Hang in there.
My legs will not stop moving and I am tired but I can not sleep...I refuse to take any more pills to sleep but I have slept maybe an hour the past two days and still working does anyone have any other advice...I feel i have been fortunate i have not had any flu like syptoms during the day and still go to the gym 6 days a week its just at night I can not rest and i have feelings of anxiety during the day which I have .5 xanax to help with....
Going through w/d your body goes into over drive and you will not get sleep but at least you can get some rest. It may take up to two weeks to get more than 2 hours sleep. I know this is not what you want to hear but I tried EVERYTHING and did not get any sleep for a while. BUT everyone is different........
The combination of benzo's and Norco's, and Ultrams, and whatever else your taking (b/c I'm sure when you run low you use whatever you can get your hands on like I did) I believe is going to kill you! Do your kids see you in this state? (again assuming you have kids)? What do you want to do? Are you ready to take your life back?
Alcohol, an occasional Xanax and Vicodin. Like you, I got sick and tired of being sick and tired. I never want to go through that again. I'm powerless over drugs and alcohol and they make my life unmanageable. Good luck to you Angie, and keep posting, letting us know how you're doing or if you have any questions.
A good attitude and plenty of hot soaks will take you far. Remember, you CAN do this. That was my mantra. It got me through the really rough patches in those first few days. We're all here to support you. Take care and keep posting.
If you can go 3 1/2 days without a perk you will be fine. I found it hard not to pill up after 3 1/2 hours.
Although some of us are holier than thou and can endure extreme amounts of pain and take on the term of martyr during pregnancy...however, some of us cannot. Not all of us that use "lose the desire". I get extremely annoyed when people say your supposed to suffer throughout an entire pregnancy. Please do not take this as a go ahead to abuse percocet during pregnancy. No one knows the risks of taking anything during pregnancy.
You are clearly either under medicated and/or are on the wrong meds. Is there another pain clinic you can call and check out? Your second issue is finding a surgeon who will do your hip replacements. When I went for the joint in my thumb, I was stunned. For years I had terrible pain but the ortho I was seeing kept giving me cortisone shots. I finally went for a second opinion who told me there was nothing left of the joint and the bones were all broken.
it's just his addiction. You have a brand new baby... work on yourself first. Do the best you can do for you and the baby. Forget about the percoset...you don't need them to cope w/HIS addiction. He's going to play video games whether or not you take the percs RIGHT! Once you are "clear-headed" and not using drugs, your decisions will be totally different from the ones you will make now when you are not so clear headed. How can he take care of a baby and play Video games...
Try not to tapper so fast, you said you went from 8-10 and now only 2 and half. Try spreading out when you take the percs, like one in the Am, lunch , and bedtime, that should help with the withdrawls. As for pain control, well, it just *****, i know i have my own issues Look into Ultram, that's a pill for pain thats NOT an opiate. Now of course that is a prescription, but for over the counter motrin. Best of luck, and keep us posted.
My question is more about hte behavioral and personality changes that take place and if they are irreparable. Oh and the other thing is this physician is retiring in summer '08. She plans on just quitting at that time. I'm afraid she will really put herself in danger by doing that. I can't seem to get through to her. Is there any way to help her? Or do I just let her hopefully find her way and not kill herself in the process.
I have been on percocet for 2 yrs due to failed back surgery. I am now 5 months pregnant and have had worries. Both my docs asure everything will be fine the doc who gives me the percs and my ob doc. But I still have worries but i cant stop taking it. They told me it would be worse trying to stop taking it right now than to continue taking it.
that in itself gives me hope. Take as MANY walks or jogs as you can. You need to release those endorphines that will help with your anxiety, restlessness and depression. FORCE yourself to drink and eat as much as possible. It is much easier said than done. I am very much physically and emotionally exhausted. Don't give up, the pain WILL end! Stay strong and I will do the same.
Haha thank you! I actually chose the name stupid when trying to post a new topic and at the time, that's exactly how I felt. Stupid for doing this to myself, and stupid for letting it get this far! Thank you for your encouraging words, they really mean alot to me. You may see in other posts that I did make a mistake today and a little afraid of it setting me back, but also found a few words of encouragement that will help me make it through the day.
I too end of may first week of june of 2010 went cold turkey after almost 16 months of everyday use and almost died and I too after 21 days felt like crap, depressed, felt like my nerves were shot to H3LL ...I take 1 mg xanax for anxiety and have been for 10 years take 2 maybe 3 a day never once have I abused them??
Almost all of us on this site started with legit pain but then the pills got hold of us and became our God - they make us feel sooooo good until you are really in deep and realize you can't make it without them --- Best to you - you can and will do this - - there is a lot of help on this site from those who have been just where you are -- - all you need is to reach out to them.
if you can't by your self, ask a true genuine friend to taper pills to you....you have to go as long as you can take it between doses. you had to build up to take 15-20 a day, so you have to come off pills the same way. work down to 12 a day, two days later 10 a day, etc,,, the last few days take darvicet. or a small small piece of a xanax, adavan is even better.... make a plan, leave pills at home except what you planned for the day.
just take it as it comes. you can do it. you are doing great be careful with the immodium, no you dont want to poop concrete and you dont want to have to purchase dynamite. lol. dont be anxious, many times fear is the only thing there is to be afraid of.
