Hey all, I dunno if anyone still helps with hydrocodone withdrawels, but I am new to this site. I've been taking hydrocodone now for about 2.5 years and it started like everyone else, taking a few pills here and there cope. It had gotten the best of me, so i hit up doctors with back problems and now have gotten so bad that I ingest nearly 20 a day. I know I have a problem and I want more than anything to stop.
i cant get comfortable enough to sleep, if im not sweating, im freezing. needles to say its drivin me nuckin futs. I made an appt with my doc to tell him about my w/d but i couldn't get one until friday. right now friday seems a million miles away. is there anything i can take to get the edge off? Im about to hit my self over the head with a frying pan just to sleep for little while. Thank you for your help.
Today I took my last pill of hydrocodone. Bring on the withdrawal. I was on it for about a year for severe pain from hip arthritis. The pain was so bad I had cortisone injections, PLUS the hydrocodone, but I still had to take days off work because the pain was unbearable. I've had hip replacement and feel great now. Of course, I feel REALLY great while I'm taking that dern hydrocodone, which was the problem.
So after reading all of your posts, it feels like I am going to go through the same things that I went through with Vicodin/Hydrocodone Withdrawals. I am really frustrated, and I want to feel the 'euphoria' that the pills give me naturally. How do we produce natural endorphins?
The instant sleep thing will go away after you establish a routine with it. Wish that I could really help you - but yours isnt a common complaint with flexeril. Do you do any breathing exercises? A couple of minutes of tai chi and meditation and particularly the breathing exercises are very valid therapies.
Was on bedrest in downstairs living room for 2-3 weeks. Took cyclobenzaprine and hydrocodone (on top of daily meds) during this time. Needed assistance to get up from bed and to use the bathroom for the first week. During this time I was also having trouble swallowing. I assumed it was from the cyclobenzaprine but I began taking cyclobenzaprine at a later date on an everyday basis and have not had this problem swallowing, so now I assume it was not from the cyclobenzaprine.
also goes numb / gets sleepy -- all of this started after a traumatic head injury that left me with brain damage - i can no longer speak half as well, and i have a rote memory now somewhere in the 0.8th percentile --- --- --- 2 and a half years ago, I'm 19 now, i was in a moped accident in france where I flew off and hit the lower part of the back of my head against a tree. i wore a helmet, though it was slightly too big.

My brother is on welfare and the doctors at the clinic have given him the following meds. Tramadol 50 mg, Trazadone 50mg,Amitriptyline 10mg, cyclobenzaprine 10mg, Hydrocodone/APAP 5mg/500mg. In addition he was also given medication for Diabetes Type II, metformin 850 mg, glipizide 5mg, lisinopril 5 mg, simvastatin 20mg, Asprin 81 mg, Ranitidine 150 mg. Additionally he was also prescribed Naproxen 500mg and Alumina Magnesia 360 ml. I think this is too much medication. Any suggestions?
1. Pain management: hydrocodone (in combination with acetaminophen?), tramadol, gabapentin (for peripheral neuropathy?) 2. Blood pressure: amlodipine, lisinopril (is your pain well control? Do you smoke?) 3. COPD: Flonase (you may need to add a long-acting beta agonist for better COPD management, and have you quit smoking?) 4. Depression: do you mean sertraline, not "certazin"? If it is, please note the drug interaction with tramadol from the manufacture label statement. 5.

I'm now receiving 180 per month along with 90 cyclobenzaprine (muscle relaxer) per month. I also receive 30 meloxicam per month for swelling and pain. Even with all these meds I'm still in pain. My knees, my hips, and my back. Some days I can't bend over to tie my shoes and if I bend over, I can't stand back up straight. I have gone back and forth to my VA doctors, but still no relief. I am so very tired of being in pain. I have been diagnosed with depression, I suffer from PTSD.
she also had me to do a SALIVA test--- to check for various allergies (foods) and /or GI parasites and bacterial infections... kinda gross-- had to fill 2 vials with saliva, each held about 5 ml.... 1 in the morning first thing, second around noon. Got to drop off at UPS today and get shipped to Lab. I'm really interested in the results, never had anything like that done before- never been tested for things like that either... Stopped seeing my Psych MD-- she was just weird, unkempt and odd.
Soma has an old tranquilizer in it called Miltown which if you look up is highly addicting. When combined with hydrocodone creates an intense high. Thats all in the past since I went to a real pain management.
hurting and just looking for some answers. currently i'm on a 3-drug prescription of cyclobenzaprine (muscle relaxer), Hydrocodone (painkiller), and Ketorolac Tromethamine (i have no idea). My only problem with this is these just help deal with the pain - they don't solve the problem. i'm interested in solving the problem. If anyone can be of help, i'd greatly appreciate it!
one of the lesser problematic muscle relaxers available. Didnt work well enough for me....I use flexeril (cyclobenzaprine) now and its both a lttle more effective and hard to have an addiction problem with.
but i have a question since i gave decided to quit taking hydrocodone after year long rollercoaster of dependence. the last time i quit i had stomach pain, anxiety, insomnia, and even paranoid dillusions. but that was from going cold turkey from 5 10,s a day now im down to 3 of the 7.5s a day and im ready to quit. my question is will Tramadol, Cyclobenzaprine, Carisoprodol, or Lorazopam (ativan) or a combo work to keep me from having the withdrawls as i have a good supply of those?

I would love nothing more than to hear there is no testing needed and I can have unprotected sex with my wife with no worry of giving her HIV. Thank you for all you do on this site.
Thanks for your insight on this mater. I will share with you soon on the next meeting I will have with Pain Management.
But they are ok once in a while, or for a short period. Just be careful with them. They are not a good combination with opiates, and since you are tapering, you are still on opiates. Which one are you taking, flexerol (cyclobenzaprine)? They do work, and make you drowsy as well. That's also why they can be addicting! Plus they can cause respiratory depression including failure, both voluntary and involuntary when taken with opiates, so be careful.
Currently, NSAIDS and cyclobenzaprine are helping to moderate some of the symptoms but the intermittent acute pain is almost incapacitating. I'm willing to try anything.
Tooter- You just had BACK surgery and kidney stones and you aren't taking any pain meds?? Why? You need to heal and if you are in pain, especially post op- you will not rest and therefore will not heal. I know it's scary, and I'm in a similar boat- but it can be dangerous. Seriously. I landed myself in a very bad medical situation because I was refusing to take my pain meds as prescribed. You don't want to add on time that it will take to heal.
The amitriptyline and cyclobenzaprine I have taken for many years--when I was first diagnosed with the fibro, the amitriptyline was the first medication I was given.
What's the big deal with this drug? Can someone answer me with specifics? Also, is there anyone out there that has just taken it for a short time and then stopped with no problems? I just got clean from harder prescribed opiates, but am now taking tramadol for my chronic pain - after tylenol and ibuprofen don't work. Also, my little innocent sister is having back problems and they mentioned tramadol/ultram to HER. So I really want to know the deal.

5's and today i took 3 7.5's and now i'm out. I WANT to quit. I can live with knowing i will physically detox 3-5 days... my question though- I have major crying spells and feel really really hopeless and depressed when detoxing, and this is the main reason i begin taking them again. Will these feelings subside along with the few days of physically detoxing?
I started with right hip pain 14 months ago and no one can find what is wrong and everything they do causes more pain . I am to the point now I do not know what to do. I am 62 and originally I lifted something heavy off the counter and carried it to the basement. Thought then it was sciatic and took ibuprofen 800 3 times daily and went to the chiropractor. Nothing helped. Went to an orthopedic and he did an mri and I suggested therapy and wearing a belt. He agreed and I Started therapy.
