I am getting ready to take my final dose of vicodin today and am very nervous about withdrawal symptoms. I've only experienced a few hours worth and that was enough to scare me sh**less. I've heard that neurontin or gabapentin is great for stopping the nerve pain associated with withdrawal. Has anyone had experience with this?
Aft first I was given vicodin then I was given the gabapentin. It really helped me a lot. After tx I stopped taking it. I am really happy that you are getting relief. You sound really good.
you can do this. I went thru vicodin WD's with 3 kids at home and life didn't stop. I did only what HAD to be done...feeding them, driving them, work, etc. I didn't worry about the house, laundry, et al. Truth be told, they kept my head pre-occupied so that I wasn't so absolutely focused on myself and how crappy I felt. I did have to make a conscious effort not to be hateful to them because I felt crappy, but I did it.
my friend is into drugs and wants to know if a pill called gabapentin will mess you up ?, i guess there 100 mlg capsoles. anyone know anything?

I have 20 left will the patch and lyrica help with these problems and if so how should I do this? I am under a docs care and have an apt to see a pain management doc. I have very bad proven back problem.
I was doing a google search to see what I can do about these creepy crawly feelings in my limbs. I saw that gabapentin (generic for Neurontin) reduces this feeling. I have this drug at home and if this is true I can stop my Norcos tapering right now. Does anyone out there have success with gabapentin?
My primary wanted me to try Savella w/o my test results back yet - waiting on the tests from the rheumatologist, but after reading that other post about Savella, that scares me. I have a friend on Gabapentin (which I believe is Neurotin sp?). Any advice? I want to be prepared because I have found that doctors do what works for them and I like to know what I am up against. I also take Clonopin, Verapamil for my heart, Potassium and Synthroid. Thanks for any advice!
I've been using it for 15 years, and no matter how hard I try, I can't get myself to taper down beyond about 6 pills a day, and that's a chore. Recently I latched onto a battle of gabapentin and started popping it like crackerjack. I think I'm a gonner. I don't have money or insurance to check into rehab. Just don't know what to do.
I went from over 25 a day to none. I had another post where I said I have been taking gabapentin. What a life saver. This is my 4th time coming off of vicodin. This time it has been 90% easier. Look gabapentin up on the internet. I just want to make people aware of it. It was precribed to me a few months ago for nerve pain.(I have siatica) I got to reading about it and it's used for many other things including withdrawals. I know all about the horrible withdrawals from vicodin.
Hey his is my first time posting I'm 29 I've been taking vicodin 10mg for almost 2 years off an on but worse in these last few months.
I am tapering down from a 6 year habit of Vicodin which is slowly killing my life. I went from alcohol straight to Vicodin. Stopping this stuff has been very painful (to say the very least) and the anxiety is awful. I am embarrassed and ashamed with no one to talk to. So please take me in. I feel for all of you. I did not know antihistamines could help. I'm going straight for those. I am almost frantic and scared, too.
I am starting cold turkey vicodin withdrawal due to running out of my prescription early yet again. In the past I would have just gotten some from a family member, but I cant bring myself to do it anymore. I had surgery after breaking my back and while the back is mended, the pain has not changed. I have been on pain meds (vicodin) for about 4 years now. I am working on losing weight in hopes that will help out with the pain.
I've been taking 30 Vicodin HPs a week for a year now, but I am still suffering and I am finding it difficult to concentrate after taking Vicodin. I want to stop taking Vicodin before I become more dependant on it than I already am. My Dr. has suggested switching to Ultram in the past. Some pharmacist say that Ultram is addictive while others say it is not. Before I switch to another medication I would like to know what I am getting myself into. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
This is my 4th time withdrawing from vicodin. I injured my back about 4 years ago and was prescribed vicodin for my pain. The first few years the pain would come and go. It starting bothering me again about 4 months ago. I know how difficult it is to get off of them. I've went thru the horrible withdrawals 3 times before. The last time I was taking around 12 a day and went cold turkey.
The peripheral nueropathy is a constant pain in all parts of the body that most resembles a traveling bee sting - - the nuerontin (gabapentin) was worthless - - and yes - i am being treated for diabetic neuropathy and have been for 2 years................ Ibuprophen 800mg - - and ice/heat work well - - there is also a transdermal lidocaine patch (same stuff your dentist numbs you with..) that i found effective and non-narcotic..........
I have been weaning off of vicodin for about a month and a half and now in full detox. Since I started weaning off my vision have been very blurry, grainy and shaky. Has anyone else had this during withdrawals/detox? How long did I it last? Very scared!
I am a 40 yr old male and I have been taking 2-4 Vicodin a day for the past three years. A medical doctor prescribed it for me after it was discovered I suffered bone degeneration in my lower 2 disk vertebrea. At the time I thought little of taking a prescription painkiller. Now after my first 6 days of no longer taking Vicodin I am realizing how powerful of a substance it actually is. I'm having withdrawal symptoms I didn't expect.
I am going cold turkey off 20 vicodin es a day for the last two years. Today is day 2 and I feel like I would rather die. How many more days until I feel a little better? I detoxed off 90 mg of methadone 4 years ago and that was horrible. I'd rather go cold turkey this time. Any suggestions?
One day my my back doctor prescribed a medication to me to also help relieve my daily pain. It was GABAPENTIN 300 mg. I ran out of my regular hydrocodone fix early and I was really freaking out worried that I would have to deal with the DT's. I will be damned. The GABAPENTIN eliminated all of the DT's. No suffering what so ever. I quit cold turkey for a month without any problems other than the diareah for a week which is expected.
I have been seeing a pain management doctor as well as a accupuncturist and massage therapist. I had been prescribed Gabapentin 2 pills 3x a day, tramadol 1-2 pills 2-4x a day, and Zanaflex as needed. That is what I was taking until I found out that I am pregnent (about 5 weeks). I've halved the gabapentin dosage stopped taking the tramadol, and am taking about 1/2 a zanaflex a day.
I've been taking Vicodin for about a month now due to back issues and subsequent surgery. I'm still in pain but I want to stop taking them sooner rather than later. Will I have problems with withdrawal after taking 10/325 every 4-6 hrs for about 30 days now? Should I plan to do anything special? Thanks for your help...I want to stop this before it becomes a problem.
