Hydrocodone xanax interaction

Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone xanax interaction

vicodin

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.
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.
I've been doing hydrocodone/apap 10/650 for 3 years now. I started out only doing 10 a month and have worked up to 10 a day! I recently lost my job (due in part to Sept.11) so I no longer have health insurance and, of course, not enough money coming in to support this habit. I was no longer getting "high" on this amount and just do not want to continue this whole addiction anyway. I tried to find Thomas's detox recipe but could not.
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.
They are bad for people that abuse them and mix them with other drugs or alcohol. Stop trying to scare people away from them. I currently take xanax and it has zero interaction with zoloft 150 mgs I take daily. I take appx .5 mg in the morning and again at night and I've never had a problem with it. I just posted the poll t find out more about the other drugs mentioned. I've heard that ativan is actually the worst for you from several doctors but was only trying to get users experience.
At about 18, for the FMS, I was switched to Lortab (Hydrocodone) 5/500. I am still to this day on Lortab 5/500, though since I was about 20, it has been no more than one 5/500 mg tablet per day to help me sleep through the pain. Normally I take between 1/2 to 3/4 of a pill. Additionally, I am on Celexa.
Hi and welcome, Ambien works the exact same way as benzos. If you looked up Ambien Withdrawal you'll find it's very rough to get off of. But I bet if you resumed your Ambien just as your doctor prescribed, it will eventually build back up in your system and let you sleep again. I have to admit, I'm like you and I second guess my doctor, but he always seems to know best. A couple of years ago I was on Ambien 10mg for just 9 months and it took me 4 months to taper off of it.
If you don't know what the normal high is then you might just very well be experiencing the feeling of hydrocodone. But, the funny feeling I got was cured with food. After I ate some food I didn't feel that weird shakey uneasy emptiness. Water will help, but food made me feel much more stable. Like a sandwich, a bagel/cream cheese. oatmeal. somewith with good healthy carbs/protein.
* Halcion, Versed, Valium, Xanax and quazepam * Norvir * Zoloft and Lustral * Statins such as Lipitor, Mevacor, Zocor, Simlup, Simcor, Simvacor, with the exception of Pravachol. Lescol and Crestor which are unaffected by grapefruit.
Put me on Butrans 10 MCG and Clonidine .1 for withdraw. I have been on hydrocodone for about 3 years on and off. Last year pain a lot worse and used more often. My problem is I really liked the hydrocodone as I felt great and finally had energy and felt like I had a normal life. Anyone know what kind of withdraw I will be going threw, how long? Will butrans help with pain? Will Clonidine help with withdraw? Going cold turkey started patch last night and still have pain after epideral?
That being said, a 50mcg dose of Fentanyl is a very reasonable dose and most people do not overdose on 50mcg. As for the interaction with Xanax and Fentanyl - there is certainly the possibly for interaction which can lead to increased lethargy, respiratory supression, or confusion. Whether this may be led to her death is possible, and impossible to say from afar on the internet. That being said, the goal of hospice is to make terminal patients as comfortable and pain free as possible.
OK. So, all of your responses are wonderful. At the time I was majorly desperate to find a Doctor to help me. I didn't do background checks or anything when I was trying to get help. The only thing I was thinking about was getting off of the Vicodin. I don't want to make excuses for myself, or for the Doctor, but I do know a bit about what I'm taking. I know that initially he did over prescribe me. I have narrowed down what I take daily hugely.
Benzos - (Xanax/Valium/Clonazepam) cured social anxiety, loved rapid onset (would kill an emerging panic attack immediately), initially were taken on an "as needed" basis -which quickly progressed to "preventative"& "recreational",eventually leading to complete dependance. took forever to quit, made my anxiety worse in the end.

That continued for a year, then when a severe drug interaction was found with one of my heart meds, I was moved to Oxycontin. I am subject to rapid tolerance, for some reason. My body has always been atypical in responding to most drugs for just about anything. I also have a severe anxiety disorder. I've had this since I was 14, and am 24 now. I was given Xanax for it, and have used it off and on since 15.
BuzzFacebookStumbleUponEmail Close [X]Houston has one of the nation's highest rates of emergency room visits linked to abuse of popular prescription pain medications known as hydrocodone and sold as Vicodin or Lortab — all highly addictive and potentially lethal, particularly when mixed into narcotic cocktails, a comparison of major U.S. metro hospitals shows.
Sounds good but I don have acess to Xanax or anything like it
There are many different pills containing hydrocodone, Lorcet is simply 10mg vs. 5mg with Vicodin. All drugs containing hydrocodone are very addicting.
A normal vike is 5mgs of Hydrocodone. Hydrocodone is a weaker opiod than Oxycodone (percoset, oxycontin). Some say it is half the strength, but I don't believe that. So, figure that one 80mg oxycontin is roughly = to 20-25 vikes.
I am on day 3 of detox, last night was absolute HELL; the crying , unable to sit still for one moment chills and the xanax didn't even help my anxiety(or what ever it is) seems to hit hardest at night. I have not experienced loose stools or nausea but am follwing the Thomas Receipe. I pray and cry to God the worst is over for me. My heart goes out to all of you going through this nightmare.
Luckily I have Xanax for that. Insomnia is another problem but I don't fret over it anymore. I just get out of bed and work crossword puzzles and have a beer(just one)until my mind is at ease. I've been using Vics and Perks for almost a year and in ever greater numbers. After 5 days without them, I feel better than I have in a long time. The problem is that I feel like something is missing and the craving sets in.
They may give you a mild benzo like xanax or valium, but only for two weeks. Don't want to trade addictions. I feel very bad for you and no one should have to go through what you are now. I check the forum a lot so keep posting and I will answer. Fentanyl is a force to be dealt with. It's 100 times as strong as morphine and deadly. I'm here for you and will be waiting for you to post an update. Take care please....
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. Ativan or Xanax should only be used if you can't get one of the others. 2. Imodium (over the counter, any drug or grocery store). 3. L-Tyrosine (500 mg caps) from the health food store. 4.
So I have mostly just gotten by with benzodiazapines (typically clonazepam, sometimes xanax), however I have been very careful with these drugs. I only use them for severe panic attacks...like when I feel like I need to go to the ER etc. I have read many horror stories about withdrawling from these medications which keeps my use to a minimum. (I take 1mg when I have an extreme attack, which is maybe 2-3 times a week...I don't think I am at risk for addiction...

I don't have enough patches left to do the 18-, 12-, 8-and 4-hour decrease, but will work with what I've got. I have some leftover Xanax from an old prescription for the plane ride, but am not sure if I should take them, because the doctor did write a script for Clonidine and Vistaril and while they are prescribed to treat anxiety and withdrawals, among other uses, the Vistaril can actually increase the effects of any other pain medication or opioids/opiates in your system.
Being healthy is my main goal as that lends itself to a better interaction in life. I will try to make the gym and swim this evening.
about possibly combining these two supplements when not too long ago I was taking fistfuls of hydrocodone along with any other mood altering chemical I could get my hands on. Geeee !!!
Haven't you ever heard a group of overweight women wishing they could have a cheese cake? Heaven forbid! They should be hung by their toes! I have an addiction to hydrocodone. I'm not proud of it and there is no one in my life I can talk to about it except for the people here. If I didn't have my forum friends I would be in tears most of the day...that's how I spent my time before I found friends like Thomas, WW,jbear Cindi,JB, Skipper, kstuebin,milo...the list goes on and on. Too many to name.
