Common Questions and Answers about Can you take vicodin with valium

vicodin

it went on for sooo long that they just couldn't DEAL with her anymore!! So I warn you don't ge invovled if you can help it....INSTEAD of taking Valium...take the OTC sleeping aides!! I am serious...you do not want to mess around with something that can trigger such mental craziness!! I know for a fact that NOT everyone can or will experience the same type of thing...but in all reality...Valium is not something to just be casually taking cause YOU CANNOT SLEEP!!
be careful with the valium, it may help but you dont want to swap to a benzo habit - they are WORSE to get off of, believe it or not....
Hi there, Are you saying that you were not withdrawing when you quit the valium? You started withdrawing when you quit the Ambien? If that is the case, i would guess that it is a combination. You went of the valium, but you had the Ambien to back it up...so you didn't withdrawal, now you have gone of the Ambien and your body is like "Ummm Hello! Where's the drugs?" So going off the Ambien caused the withdrawals, but the Valium withdrawals were just waiting to come out.
i have tried other things like massage, chiropractic, with no relief. i was also prescribed valium for the muscle relaxant which i have been not using due to the pregnancy. My last visit my ob said i can use the valium if i need to so i can get some sleep at night. i do want to quit taking them also but am afraid of the withdrawal symptoms. Everyday i tell myself i am only taking two in the morning but then throughout the day keep thinking about it evrry time my neck hurts.
Also I used melatonin for insomnia and it helped. If you use the melatonin make sure you take it about 15-30 minutes before you go to bed and the room is completly dark as it works best when its dark.
Have a plan and a little support helps too have some amodium for the diarrhea drink gateraid or water so that you don't get dehydrated take plenty of showers while the poison is oosing out of your body something PM to help you sleep sleeping distortions really can get bad focus your mind on 3-5 days of W/Ds you won't die but you will feel like s h i t write down every day how you feel keep detailed notes so that you will never forget if you have a wife or girl friend who can do this with you i
Talk to the doctor at your next appointment and let him know you want to stop taking them, you feel you are addicted. If you quit cold turkey serious side effects and even a trip to the emergency room might happen. He may slowly cut back your dose until you are at one a day and than none. Or he might even give you some Valium to keep the withdrawls down, but again, they are addictive so plase, take my advice and talk to your doctor.

This WILL work (and in fact some drug programs use a taper method, I know because I was in one). You can do it, but if you don't have enough Lorcet or other painkillers, you might need the faster approach. I've done this a few times too. If you take 20 the first day, take 10% less (2 pills) each day. The step off the bottom is a bit harder, but nowhere near cold turkey. By the way, all this requires MAJOR willpower, because you will not be getting high and you will want to cheat.
My concern is that you say you tend to mix several other pain meds like Tramadol which like vicodin is highly addictive and hard to detox from and fiorcet which in some cases has codine in it another opitate like vicodin and tramadol. I would say yes, you may have an issue with pain meds. What is your pain and nausea from and how long has this been going on???
Don't nag him about it, you will only make things worse. Make sure you take care of yourself and your children. Try to be as loving as you can. When he is ready he will stop. One way or another.
I have a few questions for you that will alow me to help you along with this first off what are you taking and how much of it....also how long have you been using dont get me wrong we will help you no mater how light or heavy you habit is...some people choose to taper it takes a wile your uncofortable and most addicts su ck at it the other way is just to jump off C/T...
lana, does your doctor still give you these, vicoden is the worst narc you can take, how many do you take?
Hi Ketta, I am not quite sure why a doc would read you the riot act with the medical condition you have that can reasonably expected to result in pain, therefore, you should be afforded treatment to make you comfortable. This is a very, as you well know, potent form of cancer - how are you doing and what are they telling you about prognosis and treatment? Regardless, you deserve to be comfortable. Don't deny yourself treatment you deserve.
What I'm going through now I never imagined possible. You feel like taking your skin off with a straight razor. You can fall asleep but wake up an hour later soaked in sweat and spinning in your sheets like a pig on a spit. I've literally had less than 5 hours of sleep in almost 6 days. It's fun coming to work and feeling the sweat break out down your back and your teeth grit as someone asks you to join a meeting.
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.
You are absolutely right...can I be really honest with you? I thought at first it was just me that was having a hard time understanding what Spook was saying/talking about, so I just went along for the ride and "pretended" I understood because I have always thought of myself as having some degree of intelligence but I felt completely stupid sometimes. I mean sometimes, ok alot of times I just sit and look at the screen and say what the hell is he talking about.
I wish I could tell you sure fire way to get off valium but really you just have to taper your dose down, or switch to a different benzo, but supposedly valium is one of the least addictive which Im sure is hard to believe for you, and for me, cause I know the sedative feeling it gave me that helped me sleep, but I needed something to help me with my constant worrying, anxiousness feeling that I still struggle with and do take a benzo for.
its not as easy as just 3 days and bam your lifes normal, i sniffed oc 80s for a couple years i kno thats more severe then wut u were doin and all but its still opiates and it can be weeks, you can goto a suboxone doctor and get them and you will not be sick, or if you kno the right people you can just buy a few from the street and just do a fast like 7day taper and u will feel better and juss have 1 or 2 for the day that you r craving to get high, and it will take that away, you wont get depend
Dependence and abuse, including drug-seeking behavior and taking illicit actions to obtain the drug, are not limited to those patients with prior history of opioid dependence You should not take tramadol if you have ever been addicted to drugs or alcohol. Seizures (convulsions) have occurred in some people taking tramadol.
Continue to take the vitamin/mineral supplement with breakfast. As soon as you can force yourself to, get some mild exercise such as walking, cycling, swimming, etc. This will be hard at first, but will make you feel considerably better.
The only rationale that I can think of is that Valium is a anti anxiety med and maybe they gave it to you to keep you calm when you have pain??? To keep you relaxed? As far as the joint pain,,I am not sure. I hope that you start feeling better soon.
Try 2000 mgs, and scale up or down, depending on how you feel. You can take up to 4,000 mgs. Take the L-Tyrosine with B6 to help absorption. Wait about one hour before eating breakfast. The L-Tyrosine will give you a surge of physical and mental energy that will help counteract the malaise. You may continue to take it each morning for as long as it helps. If you find it gives you the "coffee jitters," consider lowering the dosage or discontinuing it altogether.
I actually take less valium now than I used too. Probably 2 10 mg pills 2x a day. I appreciate people like you offering advice to someone like me. I am going to try to taper myself off until Friday night and then do my best to get some good vitamins and b-complex pills and I already drink gallons of water a day.
IF you only took the valum for a few days you can just go off it but if you have been on it a long time it needs to be tapered off of.....its best to have a doctor involved when tapering off benzo's to avoid seizures be careful with this...and its also a good idea to go off one thing at a time that way you wont be experiencing multiple withdrawals at the same time good luck and God bless.......

, more stable and you don't need to take a pill multiple times a day. I would do my best to stick with Valium, but if all you have is Xanax, it will do fine. Xanax is considered one of the more addictive Benzos because its also a bit faster acting, so many patients can feel it "kicking it" (I never felt it and I have been on Xanax for 10-12yrs!). Xanax is also preferred by many physicians to stop panic attacks (due to its fast onset).
Welcome. I don't have personal experience with Valium so I'm not sure what 20mg does. I can say that when I tried to taper off Vicodin I was down to 4 mg or close to half of a 750 a day. That for me is very low, I wish I would have just quit CT then. Can the doctor who is weaning you help in any way? Stick around there are some here with that experience.
