Common Questions and Answers about Neurontin and norco

neurontin

Thanks. I am taking neurontin and baclofen also. I am interested in what may also help.
I'm now taking hydrocodone (norco) 10mg along with gabapentin. I've never had any experience with this new drug and I have read a wide range of reviews for nerve pain. Some said the side effects were awful and had to stop taking it but others said it was amazing and got rid of RLS and creepy crawlies (mainly from opiate withdrawals). I'm wondering if anyone here has taken it for the nerve pain from a herniated disc and how long does it take for it to start relieving pain?
You can try asking a physician to prescribe you some Requip for restless legs, Neurontin for overall distress, Clonidine for blood pressure and general anxiety control and maybe get some over the counter Valerian for sleep and sedation, Magnesium can help with muscle spasms. But, seriously, you must be completely committed to the goal of quitting. I have written a blog that has rather detailed information about options for detox.
See if your doctor can write you a prescription for some Requip for restlessness, Neurontin is a great help for anxiety and malaise, some Flexeril or Soma for a few weeks for muscle spasms and maybe some Seroquel low dose for sleep. Clonidine regulates blood pressure, creepy-crawly feeling and will make withdrawals easier. Valerian and Magnesium is sometimes helpful remedies over the counter for mild sedation, sleep and muscle relaxation.
I'm embaressed and a shamed to say the least I have been on Norco 10-325 for 10 months after 34 surgeries every time I stop taking the pills I seem to have are trouble I can't sleep cold sweets and cry how long will this last???? Please help me!!
I had back fusion surgery 7 weeks ago Feb 24th and have been taking NORCO 10-325 every 4 hrs/6 a day since my surgery, I tried to cut down on my own one day and I didn't take 12am and 4am doses and guess what I started going thru withdrawals....told my pain doctor...he then gave me TRAMADOL 50mg and said to alternate 4 Norco 3 TRAMADOL ..this is my of 2nd week of alternating 3 TRAMADOL, 3 NORCO every 4 hours....but am confused on how to taper off both drugs......I want to be off pain meds.....
He put me on Lyrica for ongoing pain, plus i have Tramadol and Neurontin, but I stopped those within a week of starting them because it made me feel really depressed and nauseated. I was down to 1 Norco a day for the last 4 days, but I want to know how long the symptoms will last? The Lyrica takes a while to kick in, I'm told, and I'm in considerable pain. I can't sleep, have headaches, feel like I'm going to throw up, and have considerable anxiety!
I don't understand why, well I understand that their pain works maybe for the listd medications that it is for but neurontin and tramadol and other meds didn't work for me as well as norco, and the other higher pain meds just made me feel loopy or didnt help at all, just raised my tolerance.
I feel like hell. I'm shaky, clammy,depressed and cranky. By the way, I too was given Neurontin and like Joe, I didn't notice any difference. My doctor gave it to me for nerve pain and he pointed out that it was "non addicting." I took one that night and never noticed anything. The pain was still there. I read about it on the internet and read that it was for seizers...so i stopped taking it.
I'm down to having a quarter of a 325mg Norco 2-3 times a day. I feel great. I take the Neurontin before bed and I don't wake up feeling like I need to take a pill. I am, however, worried about my upcoming back surgery because I'd have to be back on the painkillers at least for a few weeks post-op.

Question is can a person use just one strip one mg a day to get them through the norco wd and not getting hooked on the subs or am I just postponing my wd until I run out and the sub wears off? Thank you for taking the time to read this .
Stopping tramadol will also give you withdrawals and they might be just as bad as the once from Norco. Just in case you are curious, it takes us three to four days to detox a patient and get him/her back home drug free and feeling well on Naltrexone therapy (no opiates). I know we help many people get clean and stay clean, At home, the basic technique is to take less and less every day by cutting down by about half a pill every one or two days until you are down to nothing.
I have gotten the amino acids and started them too. I am on about 60-120mg of Norco a day (I have the 7.5/500 strenght tabs). Your dose is much lower, so it shouldn't be as hard for you! I was just given some neurontin by my doc, and heard that it will help with the withdrawals so I am going to try it fast and get it over! So in essentially 20 days I will be done. We'll see how I tolerate the drop, if I need to go slower i will.
I have been taking norco for probably a year off and on for my arthritis and broken arm and when I wasn't hurting would take it just because I felt so bad from not taking them. I was taking about 20 a day. I finally got injections for my arthritis and I'm not in pain from it anymore and my arm is finally healed so I decided to stop taking the norcos, I had 60 left and for a week and a half I tapered off. I haven't had any for 4 days and am miserable.
I am withdrawling from norco and haven't slept in two days. My body hurts and I just think I may need to take one to wean off instead of cold turkey. Any advise please? Please? I'm so tired but not tired at the same time. Can I take something else to counteract the withdrawal? Any advise will help. Before I take more!
Right now, there are no long-acting, time-released preparations of hydrocodone. Norco, lorcet, vicoprofen and vicodin are instant release, short-acting hydrocodone pills - like percocet. Oxycontin is the slow-release version of perocet.
I have struggled with depression for years and I feel its the main reason I loved taking Norco. I am in the middle of day 2 and am gearing up for the evening. I feel about the same or maybe a little better than yesterday. I have learned so much from everyone in just this last day and a half and feel that I am so much better prepared to make it through the night tonight. Thanks again for the post.
Hello all, I hope everyone is doing well today. It seems as if spring has finally come to Idaho! The sun is out & I'm excited to get out & try & work in my garden now that I'm feeling better this year! Yaaay! Can anyone tell I'm a stay at home mom who likes to talk? My 2 year old keeps me company all day & Lord knows I love him with all my heart but sometimes we all just need a little bit of adult conversation!
I was given neurontin and clonidine to finish detoxing after a rapid detox. Rapid detox was horrid and not the way to go, in my opinion. Anyway, you need to get a doctor on board for this, so you get the correct dosage and the correct way to take it. I had a heck of a time with the neurontin. That being said, it did help with the withdrawals, but I would not just take it with out a prescription because it can cause problems. Also, it doesn't work for everyone.
Hello, I was in a car accident in 2006 and suffered a slipped disc 20% and cracked vertebrae in the L5-S1lower back. I have been prescribed Norco 10-325 and also Soma. I have not taken Soma in a month now, that is an awful drug because I remember I could not remember what I did those days when I took it and I walked around like I was drunk. I ran out of Norco about 6 days ago, I was prescribed a quantity of 60 and they were gone in 5 days, not good at all.
I woke up today for the first time free of not just the norco but any other meds except for neurontin and had NO Pain!!!!!!!!!!!! throughout the day I've had some minor pain and took aleve but it's not bad at all. You can do it. the rapid detox is EXPENSIVE just so you know. I think you need to talk to the therapist because even if you have a physical depenance In my opinion there's always something going on psychologically even if it's just fear of the pain.
Started taking darvoset and after two years sent to a pain management doc. He has me on musle relaxers, neurontin and Norco. I usually take 6 a day of norco even though i'm supposed to only take 4. They don't work very well anymore. I ran out this weekend and realized how much pain i really have without them. My family doesn't want me on pain meds and I do worry about what they can do to my body. I know I have addiction issues and I feel like I'm in the middle of this issue.
I'm on about day 3 but I've had 1 norco every morning so far. I am currently taking neurontin, soma and ambien. In the past I have done the Thomas recipe, hot showers, exercise and AA/NA meetings since I was a teenager. At this point, I would love some kind words and I would love to know if anyone else has detoxed from all 3 drugs at the same time? I couldn't find any posts about this and this is my first time detoxing from all 3 at once.
This is my first time on any forum asking a question, I've read tons of questions, comments, advice, etc. but I still don't know what to do. I've been on vicodin or norco for the last year or so for stomach pain (maybe gallbladder) I have no insurance which is a huge problem. I'm a 23 year old female. My doctor still doesn't know the problem with the pain, but every time I eat, I get sick, sick to point where I can't do anything, it disrupts my life.
I started out on a lower dose of 600-900 mg, and after some months, my arms and legs started to ache mid-day, but the pain went away after the bedtime Norco/Neurontin. Now, I am on 7 Norco/day and 1800 mg/day Neurontin to control my arm/leg ache. Last year I suddenly had to have 9 crowns and a root canal, and now I have to have 4 more crowns, 2 being redone. Dentist says people taking lots of meds can have dry mouth and get lots of cavities.
You can try asking a physician to prescribe you some Requip for restless legs, Neurontin for overall distress, Clonidine for blood pressure and general anxiety control and maybe get some over the counter Valerian for sleep and sedation and chelated magnesium for muscle relaxation. But, seriously, you must be completely committed to the goal of quitting. I have written a blog that has rather detailed information about options for detox.
See if your doctor can write you a prescription for some Requip for restlessness, Neurontin for anxiety and malaise, some Flexeril or Soma for a few weeks for muscle spasms and maybe some Seroquel low dose, for sleep. It will make your withdrawals easier. Valerian and Magnesium is sometimes helpful remedies over the counter. You are already on Klonopin which will be helpful for sleeplessness and anxiety. The residual symptoms of insomnia and depression can last another few months.
She's also currently prescribed Neurontin (400mg 3 times daily) and Naproxen (200mg 3td) on top of the bi-polar meds and Norco's. (EXTRA INFO)With her bi-polar and has panic-disorder she is prescribed Clonzepam (2mg) 2-3 times daily and Seroquel (200mg nightly). Her pain is real! She's had many crying nights and visits to the ER where she is truly in more pain than sh was giving birth w/out any drugs (her words not mine).
Now its like, Ok i make my coffee, sit there and drink it and just say, Ok, Now what? Norco for me was not even about the pain relief ( that was just a extra bonus ) it just really helped my anxiety and just a bunch of other things... I think " i could be wrong " that long... long..
