Sounds like your where I was a few weeks ago, yes thats a lot of vicondin, HYDROCODN is the generic for Vicodin I beleive. Hope you deside to get off cpmpletely, 4 months is not that long. I have been on them for 3 years and the withdrawal is really a tough road. Sometimes I feel like a really stupid person for letting myself get to the point of where I am at. Hope you never have to feel that way. Good luck!

I have been taking hydrocodone for about 2 1/2 years at an increasing rate, ending up with the 7.5 strength and about 18-20 per day. I do have severe arthitis pain and am a 51 year old woman. I have to cut down and recently cut down to 10 a day and have experienced physical and emotional withdrawal symptoms. I have some clonidine and don't know how much to take for withdrawal. What is the recommended dosage.
I am 20yo and have been taking hydrocodone for a year and a half. I recently came to the realization that I am in fact addicted. I have tried to stop many times (each time gets harder) but I haven't been able to quit all together. I was taking 6-8 10/500 a day. The last few months I have gotten down to 1-2 pills a day. Then I had a stressful couple of months and went up to 2-4. Now, my life is starting to get back in order, and I finally told my boyfriend...
Are you going to quit for good, or try other means to get refills? If you don't quit for good, get used to this feeling, it will happen everytime you run out, or you could spend all your family's money getting it on the street, or you could steal it. You could go on like that for years, and waste your entire life. jump off now while it will still be easier. he anxiety is the worst part of it in my opinion, but hang in there, it DOES go away. You can do this, for good!
there are several different brand names for hydrocodone; i.e., Norco, Lortab, Vicodin, Lorcet, Synalgas, just to name a few. They all come in various strengths, Norco is most well known for the 10 mg form, but the others start at 2.5 mg going up to 10 mg. You obviously do not do well with any narcotic pain reliever, as you said that Percocet and others made you nauseated.
5/750 - Vicodin ES 10/660 - Vicodin HP 7.5/200 (ibuprofin) - Vicoproofen Lortab is made by UCB Pharma 2.5/500 - Lortab 5/500 - Lortab 7.5/500 - Lortab 10/500 - Lortab 5/500 - Lortab ASA Other: 10/750 - Maxidone 5/325 - Norco 5/325 7.5/325 - Norco 7.5/325 10/325 - Norco There's also that comoplete range above in generic form - and there's also liquid forms, etc... - so, the only difference is whom makes it - as they both have different percentages of hydro/apap (and occassionally asprin).

I have been on 7.5/500 Hydrocodone (Percocet) daily 1-2 every 4-6 for pain for the last three three months and been averaging 8-10 per day, and was on 10/7.5 Lortab 1 every 6 for pain on and off for a couple of years, but on them regularly (daily) for the last six months and averaged 10-12 per day. I have spent a lot of time reading other peoples Q & A's the last few days and it's been helpful. I drink a lot on them as well and I know it's killer on the liver.
I am so excited and this is my last baby! I am 32 years old. I take Hydrocodone 10/500 (generic for Lortab) due to pain in my back. I'm supp. to have surgery to get my nerve endings burnt on both sides along my spine. I was in a very bad car accident.

How long does HYDROCODONE-APAP 750mg (generic for vicodin es) last in someone system. I got hurt at work 8/21/2004 was given Vicodin in the later part of 2005 been taking them 1 tablet orally 4 times daily for BURSITIS. Iam now going to take a drug test for new employment here in Hawaii.
Thank you everybody for ALL your input & what I have decided to do is swallow my pride and tell my Dr on wednesday the truth. I am scared but that does not matter, what matters is that my child has the best chance.
I never even heard of Soma until he took me off Flexeril and prescibed it for me. I like it because I didn't sleep good for years after my wreck. The Lortab I don't think I will have much of a problem with. The funny part is, all I ever asked for was Tylenol 3 after my wreck. All this stuff was given to me without me asking. That's what he thought I needed. I thank God I didn't take 4 a day like he wanted me to of Soma and Lortab.
My knees hurt 24/7 and I am too young for knee replacment. The Doc seems to think Lortab Elixer might do better absorbtion wise. So we tried it this month and it burns going down and I sweat badly for like 20 minutes. Does not give me the same effect as Vicodin, pain management either. After all the feelings go away, my pain has subsided for like 1 hour 1/2. and I feel like I drank alcohol. I don't feel this way with the Vicodin ES.
00 every morning for depresion from the hydrocodone and loosing my business. I took more drugs than the averge person could handle.
I took hydrocodone for five years....usually three a day, sometimes four, and very rarely five. So, like you, I didn't use as many as some people, but I still had withdrawal when I quit them. I felt lousy, didn't sleep for two nights in a row, no energy, couldn't hold my feet still at night....I guess that is like restless leg syndrome (RLS). I only had one bout of diarrhea. I drank water constantly....all day and night.
I am new to this forum and found this site while looking for support. My husband is getting prescriptions of 60-90 #10 hydrocodone a month. His typical pattern is to take large amounts (6-8 pills at a time) during a 7-10 day period. He will then wait until he gets his prescription refilled. He is experiencing constipation, hemmorhoids, diarrhea, drinks water excessively, and his moods fluctuate wildly.
And thank you in advance for your responses... I have been on the generic Norco's 325/10 mg for a year. The highest number I took in one day was about 18 pills! I track my usage, and am ready to quit. (Well, as ready as I ever will be, anyway). For the last week I have not taken any more than 3 pills a day, which for me is a huge accomplishment. (And I feel like utter ****, anyway). I am wondering what everyone thinks of quiting cold turkey vs. tapering off.
I believe in you! Take care everyone, and thank you for being there for me. Everyone of you are so awe inspiring.
) Anyway, Gabapentin (generic for Neurontin) has really helped me a lot. Still cannot sit in a chair for more than ten minutes due to soft tissue damage, but most of the day the pain is very minimal. Do have to take a few rests during the day but at least my mood is much better, I feel more relaxed and am not crying all the time due to pain. I do get a slight headache when the drug is wearing off. I am only on 300 ml a day.
Hydrocodone is the generic for vicoden and lortab and lorcet to name a few. I know that some medications are addictive and really hard to detox from but my feeling are that if your in pain and need the medication then you should take it (as prescribed of course). I have taken tramadol and still do sometimes and it does work for me at times. I have heard the horror stories of this drug as well as many others though also.
The worst thing about vicodin,lortab etc. is the tylenol from taking so many pills. I think that using methadone for hydrocodone is like putting out a fire with gasoline.
Hydrocodone is a combination of Hydrocodone and Acetaminophen. Hydrocodone is the generic name for Vicodin, Norco and Lortab. Oxycodone is a combination of Oxycodone and Acetaminophen and is the generic name for Percocet. You can also get each without the Acetaminophen added, if your Doctor will prescribe it for you. I hope that this has been of some help to you. If you have any more questions then feel free to ask. :) I wish you the very best............
Lortab is actually a mix of acetaminophen and hydrocodone. .... so you are taking Lortab...just the generic form of it. Here's a link to MedHelp's "Expert" Chronic Pain Forum. There is a physician on this site. http://www.medhelp.org/forums/Chronic-Pain/show/325 If you would like to return to our forum we'd be happy to have you! We are a community of chronic pain sufferers. Some of us have medical backgrounds but none of us are experts. Best of Luck to You.
The word "Lortab, Vicodin" are just trademarked names for the generics (hydrocodone and oxycodone)...also, those opiates can be combined with other analgesics instead of tylenol....example, "Percodan" is oxycodone with aspirin. Sorry...hope I didn't confuse you...but while the drugs are very similar, and both strong opiates, there are a lot of differences, which people do not always realize.
My psychiatrist recently started me on Celebrex for a chronic pain problem and I found it does not work nearly as well as ibuprofen( Motrin, Advil) which she believes is bad for the kidneys. Alcohol also works better, but as you know is another strongly addicting drug. I began curing my pain by drinking alcoholic beverages because I could not get pain meds from my HMO way back when. Now I am still fighting a severe alcohol addiction! IT SUCKS!!!!!!
Heather, you can always pay for meds privately but they are costly. Even a low dose of generic oxycontin will likely cost $45 or more for a 30 day supply. Just my personal opinion but maybe you need to think about finding a better pain management doctor instead of a better narcotic. You never mentioned what type of pain you are trying to relieve. If it's nerve pain from MS, I don't think the narcotics are ever going to do it.
