Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone price

vicodin

I was prescribed hydrocodone... and for some reason.. no matter how much i take it never relieves any sort of pain minor or major. If anything it just leaves me sorta "stoned" ....in a way unable to react to the pain that i'm still feeling... basically it just dopes me up but the pain is still there. Am i immune to hydrocodone? i dont understand. My doctor is really fighting me on going to the chiropractor which is really what i'm leaning towards..
HYDROCODONE CAN YOU ACTUALLY GET OFF OF HYDROCODONE COMPLETELY BY TAPERING DOWN, SUCH AS 8 ONE DAY, 7 THE NEXT DAY, ETC.? I AM REALLY ADDICTED TAKING AS MANY AS 11 A DAY. I WANT OFF OF THIS STUFF BUT I CANNOT GO TO A DETOX AS MY FAMILY ISN'T THE LEAST BIT AWARE OF MY PROBLEM. PLEASE HELP!
Some of you may have seen the recent news surrounding hydrocodone, but I wanted to share it here for those of you who haven't as it’s an important issue that could potentially affect millions of people. To give you a brief overview, an advisory panel to the FDA has recommended tighter restrictions on hydrocodone-containing drugs, which would essentially classify them among the most dangerous prescription medications available to patients.
I am not sure if everyone is aware the FDA is considering changing the scheduling of all drugs containing hydrocodone from schedule 3 to schedule 2. What this means is it will be in the same class as Oxycontin, Morphine etc. The main thing is if you do not currently see your PM doc every month to get these meds you will have to due to the change in scheduling. I personally see my doc every month anyway since I am already on a schedule 2 drug.
When prices are involved, especially if the person uses a particular Pharmacy it would be in there best interest to contact the Pharm. for the price difference. All Pharmacys have different prices and are subject to change. The price market widely varies on narcotics....
you will get alot of differing views on "how many" hydrocodone are enough. It's tough because if you're an addict one is good, two is better, then pretty soon you're up to a lovely 25/day. If you cannot tolerate the pain without narcs you should set a limit of how many you will take daily......not more than 4,5,6. You will still have withdrawals even from these low numbers, but mixed with antiinflamatories(from your doc.) you should be able to get substantial relief.
for the past 3 months ive been taking about 120mg hydrocodone a day (12 norcos) which is 120mg hydrocodone and 3900mg acetominophen(tylenol) ive been taking this along with 80mg diazepam (8 10mg pills to sleep/get high) and it was getting bad.... i was crushing em up and high 24-7. lately ive been doing what i thought was tapering off, by going from 12 to 11 to 10 etc on a daily basis....just dropping a pill a day.
I want to withdraw from Hydrocodone. I've been on pain meds steadily for 2 years. A year and a half ago, I came off cold turkey from Percocet which I had been using for 6 weeks. It was the worst experience of my life. Physical symptoms were horrible, but the depression was worst. I have always struggled with depression and take effexor. I have used the drugs to self-medicate. Lately i've been taking Vicodin ES. It no longer gives me that HAPPY feeling just keeps me going.
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 have been taking hydrocodone about four 10mg 325 a day since I was like 9 weeks pregnant. I have a hole in my tooth that causes me alot of pain. Im currently 27 weeks along and I want to stop taking them soon so my baby doesn't go through withdrawls. If I stop at 30 weeks will my baby still go through withdrawls at birth? I take less than I'm suppose to and I do not abuse them. All of my prenatal screenings have come back normal so I dont think the meds have had any effect on him.
I've been reading online about hydrocodone withdrawal and googled withdrawing from hydrocodone and todays date. So yes, this is the first time I've posted. Thank you for your reply. It does help to know I'm not alone.
worst of all was having my emotion tied to my addiction.. Freedom from drugs is awesome a week of being dope sick is a small price to pay.. AA NA are free and very beneficial for support.. the forum is a great place also for support but ultimately it is up to you to make a decision and stick with it. You can do it !!! Keep posting and asking questions.. sooner or later one or many suggestions will help you find that resolve..
Hi - I've been on a scrip for hydrocodone for about a year, only 2 10/500 pills/day. Is that an addictive quantity of the drug? I normally quite taking them for a few days like every other month or so - haven't ever noticed any effect other than probably some imagined joint pain. Nothing like the horror stories posted here for certain. Probably like everyone else, I do get "stoned" off of them infrequently - ie take 4 at a time.
I was on one thing when I had my job and insurance that was actually pretty amazing, and you cant really OD on them, it was the Duragesic patches, but without insurance the price for them is SOOOOOOO HIGH! When I was using them, it had absolutely NO adverse affects, I felt good, no tiredness no nothing... I wish I could go back to that night now, but maybe wait until I have insurance again... but then it brings back to your point of your bodies tolerance...
Hi: I am a 45 yo male who has taken hydrocodone for 6 months for headaches along with zoloff and ambiem for depression. My useage was up to 7 15/100, formulated pills per day. I began taking as many as 4-5 at a time 3 months ago. After several attempts and help from my wife I was able to taper down and quit 2 weeks ago. Best thing I have ever done, may have saved my marriage and job. Most of the worst withdrawl effects are gone now except for a change in sleep patterns.
I started taking hydrocodone 6 months ago for a back problem. I was taking 1 10-500 per day. Sometimes 2. I am up to 3 per day now. I don't run out but I have gone from 3 per day to 1 or 1/2 per day for the last 3 days. Uncomfortable sensations and sleepless nights (I also have RLS). Is this the withdrawal from the meds or something else? Is it possible to be addicted after only 6 months. I haven't had any medication in the last 24 hours and probably 1&1/2 for the last 3 days.
I just keep thinking, if my wife and I can quit a $300 a day meth habit and never relapse, surely I can make it through this, but it seems very scary right now. I guess at that price and more than one doctor visit, the Suboxone is out of the question but what are those other things you talked about and how do they help with the process.
Opiates are my favorite, and hydrocodone has been especially easy and fairly cheap to obtain (at times!). I do experience bad back pain sometimes, but for the most part just like 'em. After having an almost endless supply for around a year and a half, my supply was pretty much gone. Oh, no! What to do when you're up to 10 7.5's a day and have NO CHOICE but to stop? I had a little more than thirty pills when the bad news came, so immediately I started weaning.
I'm 35 year old mom of two beautiful daughters who are only 14 and 11. I have been addicted to hydrocodone for the last 2 years. I was up to 150mg/day . I'm down to one pill left and going through horrible withdrawals. This forum I feel are the only ones who understand what I'm going through. I have tried many times before to stop but went right back to it. I'm so tired of going through this and my girls seeing me go through this is the worst thing I could put them through. I'm done.
The math just doesnt add up, Im usually out in 8 - 10 days, then have to go through w/d's until next month, or buy them off the street at a ridiculous price. I am a smoker also, tryed to quit several times, even bought one of those electric cigs, they make me cough worse than the regular ones, you are alot younger than me, im 56, and have high b/p and other health issues. I have several people that are worried about my health, the pills, smoking, etc.
Hi Thank You I remember the weight gain from before and I honestly don't remember if I tried Risperdal or not?? He had me so up and down several times my head spun. Being a military (ret now) family you move and move, each new doc thinks they need to remake you! So they always messed with my hormones )-: yikes! And my meds too, there were times i think my hubby was ready to go to sea all the time!! So thats been my major hesitation with yet another new doc....
Well today is day 3 and I have to say this time in not that bad. I have used the darvocets to ease the withdrawal and plan to be off of them by tomorrow. I was suprised when I did a little research on darvocets and found that they are sometimes used to aleviate withdrawals when coming off of stronger opiods. I researched it through Wikipedia if anyone is interested in reading up on them. I figure you do what you gotta do to get clean.
I have done illegal things to obtain these pills, and unfortunately theyre only a phone call away from several places for the right price. i HAVE to stop because they are in charge of my life now i cant function without them. my husband is somewhat supportative but he has had it with me. I know what the withdrawls are, and have been through them before, but this is the longest and the most ive ever taken at one time (average 5 lorcets a day for 4 months nonstop).
I am concerned because I am on 7.5 (I believe it is) Hydrocodone for severe arthritis in lower back- also added with Ultram 50 mg. try to do only 2-3 per day... the Hydrocodone is prescribed-am taking it as prescribed... For 5 yrs. nothing for pain-then one dr. prescribed the ultram, not quite doing the trick- but took the edge off.
A few years ago I was prescribed hydrocodone 7.5/500mg for ovarian cysts.
Due to chronic pain I was put on Hydrocodone (Loritab 750) I was prescribed 2 a day 500mg to start then 2 a day 750 up to 3 a day all in a 2 year period. Just recently because of my drs concern for the tylenol affect to my liver I now use the Duragesic Patch 50 mg which has been such a relief...I am able to do almost anything without worrying about the pain I will feel tomorrow. The dr was happy to give me the patch and I am happy to have it. What is this doing to me physically...
Hi & help! I have been taking Hydrocodone for 5 yrs. now for migraines. I am not insured due to the cost of health insurance since I am self-employed. My mother (God bless her) was my supplier. She did not mean any harm, just trying to help me with my migraines. Due to her having wonderful health insurance (3 coverages) my mother was able to have unlimited quantities of Hydrocodone due to previous back surgeries and dealing with elderly pains.
Yes, I've known for awhile that they don't do any good long term but taking them got rid of my headaches and made me feel happy - normal. I have some temazepam and one hydrocodone. I'll maybe take the hydrocodone at some point so I'm not exactly quitting 'cold turkey', to help me taper a bit more, but I'll keep to the temazepam for the extreme anxiety (which usually happens around now, it's a bit more bearable during the day. Just gets progressively worse). I plan on trying to talk to her.
