Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone and wine

vicodin

This puts patients at risk for developing serious, and even fatal, health issues. Last year at the WAISMANN METHOD®and 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.
I have started and stopped and been in the hospital to detox (this was to come off of some benzo's I was taking too and they are far worse to come off of) Anyways, I have put my friends and family through hell and back with my addiction(s) and a little over 3 years ago I was caught forging RX's and gave up my 40 percs a day cold turkey. My parents stepped in and I was able to take off over a month from work and I remember I slept a lot but I made it through.
I have abused hydrocodone and oxycodone on and off for 8 years, with many drug free periods. My biggest problem is this God awful depression i get, but i always remember after 2 weeks, I always start to feel much better.
I had surgery 3 months ago and my doctor told me that I could take Hydrocodone for 2 weeks only and would be fine. Well, I'm not...I'm addicted again. I tried to stop taking them and passed out and was taken to the hospital by ambulance. No one in my family knew (til today) that I've been taking Hydrocodone so the hospital thought I was suffering from a very bad stomach virus(dehydration, very lose bowels, vomiting, sweating, passing out..etc...
Under normal circumstances, alcohol and medications don't go together. Taking wine would defintely enhance the side effects of Lortab, and these include drowsiness, nausea, lightheadedness, constipation. Severe side effects include slow irregular breathing, anxiety, severe constipation,difficulty in urination, and even liver damage, as you have stated.Signs of liver damage include jaundice, which is the yellowing of the eyes.
thanks for the comments, I never thought that I would have problems sleeping, but it just goes on and on and on and I believe it causes a host of other problems like twitching, apathy, no motivation etc. I'll try the sleeping pills, I thought sominox might be a good anti-histamine to try, I have some ambian (i'm not a abuser of sleep aids fortunately!
I've been using hydrocodone for almost 4 years too. Not as much as u but, about every 6 months I ask my doctor to do a test on my liver. It's a simple blood test done in his office and they have equipment so they don't even need to send it anywhere. Not sure how good of a test it is but my doctor assures me that it's accurate enough.
Before taking acetaminophen and hydrocodone,. tell your doctor and pharmacist if you are allergic to ... www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ druginfo/medmaster/a601006.html - 23k - According to WebMD Hydrocodone and Pregnancy Teratogenic Effects: Pregnancy Category C: There are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women. Hydrocodone bitartrate and acetaminophen tablets should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus.
Since then I only get visual ones (no pain) and it's not often. If you're concerned about Tylenol, well, hydrocodone has acetaminophen in it. You need to make sure you don't go over the daily recommended dosage of acetaminophen. And lots of other things have it as well. I don't think your withdrawals will be all that bad, but if you're really concerned about it, taper off the 2-4 pills your'e taking. Just cut back a little every few days.
i dont know if i will make it through this and I pray for anyone reading this to NEVER let themselves fall completely into a drug...especially hydrocodone. This has been the toughest battle of my life and it seems to get harder everyday. God bless you all and think positive I guess. Im not a religious person but I will accept any of your prayers. My email is fitness_by_jason***@**** if anyone has a similar problem or anything to share with me.
I also took them for legitimate back pain but started to have the same thing happen I needed more for the same effect somewhere I crossed the line and started waiting till the end of my work day and took my whole daily dose at once....I couldn't perform my job wile on them and by the end of the day I was in terable pain....taking them like this not only got rid of the pain but also gave me a buzz at the same time....I liked the way it made me feel....
I'm gong to tell my story in as few words as possible bc I'm at work right now and don't have a whole lot of time. I was prescribed hydrocodone in August of 2008 when I had 2 wisdom teeth removed. 2 weeks later I had 1 more tooth removed and was prescribed more hydrocodone. All together I had 60 pills. They gave me energy and I loved the way they made me feel, so when I ran out I got more from someone I know. One day i ran out completely and was sick...I call it dope sick.
I would recommend taking any mild pain reliever such as Tylenol and or Ibuprofen. Believe it or not this WILL help. You could also drink a glass of red wine to help you rest and relax. Drink plenty of water to help your body with the detox. This sounds absurd, but try getting in a little exercise like push ups and jumping jacks, it helps muscle pains. Im not saying your incapiable of tending to 4 children by yourself because you are capiable, physically but not mentally.
I've been taking hydrocodone for the past five years, and at maximum prescribed levels (1-2 tablets every 4-6 hours - - which, naturally, means 2 every 4 hours) for the past two. How do I get off this stuff? Cold turkey? Phased withdrawal?
So I got some other meds from my sleep and allergy specialist and my ENT for my sinuses and allergies and once again I couldnt function enough to make it into te shower every day.
okay so about 3 wks ago the methadone clinic pissed me off and I quit goin my best friend and I were goin well she gave me her 3 take homes from the clinic and she went on suboxone, well I took them and then I got my script of hydros which I took in three dayz. I went and picked up to scripts both for 90 pills each , so that is 180 minus 45 I gave the girl who took me that still 135 pills which I have about 15 left.
I apologized after we got home ( but I was so abusive in my comments that she left dinner without me and I walked home alone), and she accepted and understood my issues and all is good.
My dose is 10mg hydrocodone/350tylenol and I take 2 every 6 hrs. The med is called norco and 1 is 2x the strength of a vicoden. With my first son I had to take vicoden about 3-5 days a week for the last 5 months of my pregnancy and my son was born fine at least when it came to not having anything from the meds. I also had a glass of redwine 1-2x a week (i told my dr.
But, usually your enzymes will be elevated if you have used a lot of ehthanol and hydrocodone. I have and my last profile was normal. However, I take massive quantities of Milk Thistle, which helps the liver process Tylenol, and other nasty little substances. Milk thistle and other liver aides can be found at most health food stores. So, if you feel like you need your doctor's help and you must tell him or her go ahead.
What if I did go back on the recommended 6 Norco's a day, and under no circumstances, go over.... I've researched hydrocodone, and there are doctors that do prescribe this medicine for depression. I just wonder if my brain needs this type of chemical to be able to function? Or I'm also wondering if this is my addiction talking all the same. All I know is, life is painful right now. So painful, and I'm still not really seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Anyone have any input?
I have never really been into drinking, but it felt good to have a glass of wine last night and not worry about it messing with my high. and the fraction of a wine headache I woke up with this morning was almost refreshing - it reminded me that I am ALIVE! God Bless to everyone that is going through this right now. If such amazing and prolific things can occur @ 40 hours sober, I cant even imagine what its gonna be like @ 80 hours sober.
Had a couple more sugery's and the next thing i knew i was hooked on hydrocodone. Went through a suboxone program and the wd's from that stuff was awful. 2 weeks of Hell. Well, i switched to drinking then. So that started about 7 mos. ago. i never even wanted a drink while i was on hydros and subs. Can we say additive prsonality? yes indeed. Anyway, i do appreciate your post and encouraging words. thanks a bunch.
About 5 1/2 years ago he went to the Dr. for back pain (which I don't think exist) and they gave him Hydrocodone. He has taken those until just about 2 months ago. He started going to a back pain management Dr. and they have prescribed him Oxycodone. Now, my husband can drink anywhere from a 12 pack to a case in one night and still function on a level where you would not know he is drunk.
much worse then methadone... Hydrocodone... that`s like codeine(I tried it isolated few times) and thebaine(buprenorphine or Subotex is a derivat)... I bet it`s really exhausting to go trough this. So, just keep going, because you are doing great... it`s really sometjhing to be admire of... You will go trough this. You are really strong. You have already proved it by now... Good luck...
) Then I started on tramadol and since liquor doesn't seem to have any enhancement w/ the tram I don't do them at the same time but I still do both. I have such a high tolerence now when I try pecocet or lortab I get no reaction. The tramadol is the only thing that does it for me.
See how complicated it can get? And yes, a megadose of hydrocodone will kill you just as dead as a smaller dose of heroine. Lastly, I've smoked opium and my bronchial tubes and throat suffered as a result. Some people just love the high though from smoking opium, regardless. BTW hello and merry Christmas Brighty and Daughter! Please give her an extra hug for me.
my nerves get all jacked up, and ill drink a glass of wine or two so i can fall asleep. ive been on xanax for about a yr and a half, jeez i remember when i could take .50 and crash out...i still struggle with sleep, but the alcohol helps me relax...is it honestly bad to stay on xanax for long term (without drinking) ive gone thru detox and programs several times and its just sooo damn hard!
When I was a kid, I used to get into my mom's wine and beer, and later got with friends with the same interests and started developing my drinking career. Over the years, I have been successful in my drinking career (as well as my scientific and family life) BUT the difference now is that I can't stop. I know about AA and have been to rehab and all that stuff. I have cirrhosis and continue to drink approx. 3 fifths a day of vodka of course. Insanity, absolute insanity and I know it.
I've been on hydrocodone for 18 months as well. When it gets to the point that I'm like a kid with a bag of candy and wanting to abuse the meds no end, I go on "vacation". The way I figure, if you can survive the dreaded WD's, it has to be good for you! If you think that stopping for a short time will decrease your tolerance level, forget it. It takes months. I usually last as long as I can stand the pain of my afflictions which is maybe two weeks.
kinda girl, and am sure I'll have the occasional glass of wine here and there once I've got this under control. But right now, it's just not worth it. I don't need the loosened inhibitions. I don't need the junk in my system. I just want to focus. Eye on the prize.
