430403_tn?1204081539 I had cancer 5 years ago <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the dr put me on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hydrocodone</span> 10/500 mg. I was taking 6 a day like the dr told me to do. Even the days that I'm not hurting I've took them to make me feel better. Over time I wasn't taking them for pain it just made me feel good, and gave me energy. Now I have to take them just to feel normal and now I take more than what I am suppost to. On an advage day I do anywhere from 10 to 20 a day.
Avatar_n_tn Im hooked on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hydrocodone</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I dont know what to do. When I was young I broke my leg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> now I have back an hip pain I wont to stop takeing them but the pain hurts so bad. Can someone help me please.
Avatar_n_tn Everyone has different medical problems in addition to their addiction, such as <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>high</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span>, etc. I pray you can find a really GOOD doctor, who is knowledgable in addiction, pain meds, etc. Once I got clean, I felt so much better that the mental aspect of my addiction (for some reason) was easier to deal with than I ever expected. If I have a weak moment, I think back to how miserable I was before I got off the drug and that helps me.
2126606_tn?1346348724 This puts patients at risk for developing serious, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> even fatal, health issues. Last year at the WAISMANN METHOD®<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Domus Retreat, we treated about the same number of patients for addictions to Norco as we did for Heroin, OxyContin or methadone. Although not completely surprised, I was appalled to find out that many of these patients developed a dependency to the drug after they were given a prescription for a very small injury.
Avatar_n_tn By the way i have type 2 diabettis,<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>high</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>high</span> cholesterol <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> heres the kicker I AM 23 YEARS OLD. My nuerologist has been seeing me for 2 years hes supposed to be a big shot shouldnt he have fixed me by know.
Avatar_n_tn I'm very happy that you are going to get the recommended items <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> start tomorrow. Come here as much as you can <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> read <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> post, it really really helps! Nothing can take away the w/d but the things mentioned in the recipe and by others can be lifesavers for some. I also had xanax and took them during w/d with no problem, they helped me. If you already take them with no problem, it worked for me, just be careful that you do NOT up the dose at all.
Avatar_n_tn childrens aspirin,fish oil, calcium, multi vitamin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> meds. I take the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hydrocodone</span> for numerous problems. Neck pain from L3 & L4. Both shoulders have had surgery. One rotator cuff and the other major clean up. I was born premature and had to have over 18 surgerys on my feet. Can't stand long without great difficulty. My back has no vertabre spacing so it bothers me alot. I have heart trouble. I get pain all the time. Doctors resolving by meds rather than stint.
Avatar_f_tn If it a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> medicine, I wonder how it works on someone that doesnt have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> problems, like me. I will talk to my doc about it. I did not do well today. I took 6 earlier, and 8 tonight. So bad. Just horrible. I am not even at the place I was wanting to be when I took them. But I will not take anymore. I promise. I am disgusted with myself right now.
Avatar_n_tn It effectively lowers the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> lessens many of the withdrawal symptoms. Most any doctor will prescribe it if you’re honest as to why you need it. Discuss dosages and frequency with your doctor. Thomas Recipe: 1. Valium (or another benzodiazepine such as Klonopin, Librium, Ativan or Xanax). Of these, Valium and Klonopin are best suited for tapering since they come in tablet form. Librium is also an excellent detox benzo, but comes in capsules, making it hard to taper the dose.
Avatar_m_tn I think it is mainly to help your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> which will surely be elevated during this time period <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I think I have also heard it to be helpful for restless legs, so you might give it a try. Just don't get your hopes up too high, I hate to be such a downer, but if you go cold turkey off your meds, there is some extreme discomfort coming your way and you need to be prepared for it.
Avatar_f_tn ive read this to but i know internet info is very often conflicting. Ive also read that because your in pain your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> can raise which is worse for the baby than the meds are. When my tooth hurt, i mean it hurt so bad i would sit there and cry. I would honestly contemplate pulling the thing out myself lol. (But then i know i could miss some of the roots so i through out the idea) But i just want what any other mother wants..
Avatar_f_tn I just found a new wonderful Dr up here in my town who went in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> worked so hard <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> got the stent put in the 100% blocked one. I am on a 2mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> pill but I have always had great BP. They said it is for the Heart not to pump to hard. I also had a lil heart attack that I never new I had..SO PLEASE BE SAFE and GO TO THE DR ASAP!! Sometimes I think that attack happen when I went c/t off those 3 meds.
Avatar_n_tn Along with diapepam, adipex ( for weight loss ) Baclofen, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Phenergan for nausea. I also suffer from depression <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>high</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> pressure. I'm open for any feedback and suggestions.....
4391493_tn?1353942627 do you know if <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> is raised by WD? mine went crazy earlier. it was 170/137 and i have never been so scared. i felt like i was hanging upsidedown. i really thought i was going to die and thought for a bit that i wanted to. this is so hard and confusing. i wwant to help other people avoid this. please help. we can do this.
Avatar_m_tn But it can be done without them. Normally all they'll do at the hospital is send you back home,unless your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> has sky rocketed or some other health issue. How you feeling today?
Avatar_n_tn It effectively lowers the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> lessens many of the withdrawal symptoms.

Avatar_n_tn At any rate, through some strange twist of fate, Clonidine is one of the few <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>high</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> medications that actually lowers my hypertension without causing blistering headaches, as all the others I tried did. But I'm afraid that it didn't quell the withdrawal symptoms from hydrocodone when I stopped taking Norco cold turkey. Perhaps, though, this is because I take it (Clonidine) on a daily basis. Still, I've yet to find anyone for whom it did much good where withdrawal was concerned.
Avatar_m_tn I cold turkey'd off of it that time <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> didn't sleep <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span>/or feel well for about 6 days. This time I'm up to 80MGs a day <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> want to stop before I repeat my previous ordeal. Learning that cold turkey wasn't the smartest way to stop this addiction, on Monday I began my version of weaning off. I started with 20MG in the morning with 10MG more at lunch and 10MG more after dinner (6pm) for a total of 40MG, half of my previous daily usage.
1006065_tn?1251482269 I had to discontinue the Vistaril because of increased agitation <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> anxiety <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> decrease the Clonidine due to a drastic drop in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span>. The lowest it got was 99/56. I took a 1/2 pill and it was not much better. I went to a 1/4 pill. I continued taking it for about 8 - 9 days. At the lowest points in my b/p, I could not sit up or hold my head up..that is why I had to go to 1/4 pill.
Avatar_n_tn He put me on librium and something for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> said good luck. That withdrawl was the worst thing I have ever gone through, but as sick as I was, I was determined to get clean of them. It took a few weeks to get back to a semblance of normalcy. I still get hydrocodone occasionally for legitimate medical needs, and I always want more, but I just don't ask for it. When they're gone, I'm bummed, but I get over it, because I know that with hydrocodone, it's a one-way street.
Avatar_f_tn The Clonidine is a blood pressure med that helps with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>high</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span>, only use under a Dr. care, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> only dr. prescribed. It was a blessing for me, and helped keep me in my skin during detox. I also used a few tranzene, but do not condone it's use for others, as it did help me out during detox. I do not take them regularly. Get the Immodium, otc pain meds, good fluids(gatoaide)ect. Heating pad, hot baths or showers.
Avatar_m_tn I am on Levothyroxine for hypo-thyroidism, Paxil for panic attacks, Cozaar for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>high</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span>, Omeprazole for gastric problems, Methotrexate for rheumatoid arthritis, and a Remicade infusion (chemo) therapy every six weeks also for the RA. Right now, all I want to do is get off the hydrocodone. I will just have to deal with the pain because I hate taking all these medications which are a necessary evil. Is there anyone out there with answers.

Avatar_f_tn Could it cause bad depression? It's been almost 2 weeks since my surgery <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I've been taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hydrocodone</span> for the pain. The truth is I'm taking it when I really don't need it. I'm still in some pain but not unbearable. I'm going to the DR the 4th and I'm going to ask him for some antidepressants. The only thing is I don't have the patients to wait for it to kick in. I've tried several in the past. I told them in the hospital I was depressed and they didn't say anything.
Avatar_m_tn I think one of the medications was called subutex, another was suboxone (these 2 are both opiate blockers), and the third option was a combination of Librium (a benzodiazepine) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> clonidine (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> medicine). The first 2 are both opiate blockers which I think kind of trick the brain into thinking you're on opiates and causes you not to have the feelings of withdrawals, the nausea, vomiting, feeling of crawling out of your skin, etc...then you taper off.

Avatar_f_tn I filled the meds to help with withdrawl but never took one because I have three kids to take care of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I was told it could mess with my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span>. But really I have not needed it. Just try to take it minute by minute and change up your routine. Also keep yourself busy in those in between times, I cook, clean, draw!
