Common Questions and Answers about Percocet and effexor

percocet

So, is there any particular interaction between percs and Effexor? I am not in a position to seek medical help with the withdrawal and I know it won't last forever. Any kind words, if nothing else, might help.
I can't miss work anymore and to be honest when I do I just sit around and think of the withdrawels. I have been on Effexor for 6 years for anxiety. Can someone help me get the monkey off m yback and give me my life back. I am tired of the ER trips when I run out of meds and I am tired of always counting my pills and all the **** that goes along with it. I really would appreciate help. I know I can do it I just need someone out there to be my friend and not judge me.
I also see a shrink for depression and have been on antidepressants for years, effexor xr low dose, should I tell my shrink about this addiction to percocet? could she prescribe the suboxone? 6. I just want to say I am very serious about getting off of these, they have affected my whole life in a negative way and the main issue I have is the physical w/d, as I feel I am dying. Thank you to anyone who answers me.
I have herniated discs in my lower back that will require sergury to correct the problem. My doctor has prescibed Percocet for the pain until I can see a nuerosergeon and have a date set for my operation. I have been on pain meds for about four months now on and off. Whenever I try to stay off of the medication, the pain is too much for me to take.I am due to have the operation in the next three to four weeks tops because my appointment with the surgeon is in one week.
In January my pain management dr put me on Xanex 3x a day, Soma 3x a day and Effexor 1x a day. I have terrible shaking/tremors in my fingers, hands, foot and tounge. I went to see a Neurologist and he said my tremors are due to meds. Says I am on way to many and that my pain mgmt Dr will have to wean me off of these slowly, as they all have w/d side effects. Anyway, now I am trying to get off of them. PM Dr. told me to cut them in half and do that for 3-4 days and then quit!!
I'm currently tapering off of Vicodin and Effexor but this problem of being emotionless and not caring about much has been going on for a little over a year now. (I almost don't know where a whole year of my life went) Anyway, I'm asking because I want to know why I feel this way. I want to make sure I'm making a logical decision to get off of Effexor because it's going to be such a grueling process.
From personal expereince i am a user of Effexor and my dr and i have tried to take me off of it many of times, my body is literally medically depended on it. I "withdrawl" from it like i'm on drugs or something, i shake, sweat, cry, have massive mood swings and can't sleep. This medicine is very strong from depression I am on 150MG for 5 yrs so maybe why my symptoms are different. To say the least good luck and if u find nice way to get through it let me know.
I know taking 12 percocets a day is not good for me, but I couldn't function in pain. They allow me to be a somewhat normal mom. The pain caused major depression and I am on Effexor and Lamictal. I ran out of my script for Perc's 2 days ago, but I have morphine ER (that was prescribed when my pain was so severe I couldn't walk). So yesterday I started taking them to prevent withdrawals. I am seeing my dr. today at 1pm to get my refill of Perc's.
I had hernia surgery and was prescribed percocet 10mg.. It been 2 months and have stopped them but feeling really depressed and anxious. How long will this take to subside??? I usually half the 10mg and take half at a time. at most take 5 halfs a day..???
so then i was on 2 meds and xanax when needed mostly for sleep and i decide that its too much medication and i stopped taking both effexor and wellbutrin everyday and i cut it down to taking effexor one day and then wellbutrin the next and so on so in effect cutting my dosages in half. this was done without any doctor oversight. that was working for awhile on the anxiety side but I was still very depressed.
I saw my pdoc a few weeks ago, was feeling bad, and wanted to go up to 300mg effexor ( i know this is a high dose) he didn't want to and told me that some of his patients will have a bad week then feel better the next. I go through this too.. Last week was a good week but noticed that starting Friday, I began to experience anxiety and depression again which lasted all weekend. I wake up with anxiety, which is horrible.
Then the friday that just passed i popped a quarter of an 80mg percocet pill (20mg) and it didnt do anything to me except make me feel stupid, and then the next day i feel like the feeling that i describe before has gotten worse. The feeling is subtle so i cant exactly put my finger on it. I would also like to mention that i was on celexa and effexor for a period of time. I have trouble with depression and anxiety.
Alcohol(every once in a while), marijuana (once a week - every day), ecstasy (5 times, max dosage 3 pills), cocaine (4 times, max dosage 2 lines), NYTOL (250mgs and another 200mgs at another time) percocet (once 40 mgs), adderall(2 times, first time snorted around 65mg's second time less than 2.5 mgs) I was also on celexa and effexor both for about a month a while ago. I just turned 16 recently and started to feel weird (which i think is caused by drugs) like i cant think and i felt stupid.
We both quit for about 4 yrs and then my husband hurt his back and got a script for vicodin. I'd had percocet when I had my kids but It wasnt a big deal. So we were totally sober for four years and then got addicted to the damn vicodin that lasted about 3 yrs and steadily got worse. It was may more expensive than beer haha. When we started to not be able to pay our bills and saw the same pattern happening again we panicked and tried several times to quit.
I really don't have an actual answer for you....I googled "Vicodin and pregnancy" because I may be pregnant (I hope!) and I'm on vic 750 every 4 hrs for back pain (bulging disks, car accident in 06 I hit a deer.) I have taken percocet for this, and it doesn't feel very different from Vicodin. It has helped me tremendously to read these blogs, so I suggest you google "percocet and pregnancy" and you might find a similar blog. I wish I could help you more!
I am 26 and take 0.5 klonopin every night for sleep. I was taking 3 a day and managed to get down to 1. I have been trying to stop this medicine for over 9 months but have found it very hard I have gotten myself down to 1 every night but after a few weeks it's the same withdrawns can't sleep pounding heart shaking & nervousness-panic attacks. I have tried to stop cold turkey that is impossiable. I found out that I was 5 weeks pregnant and recently had a miscarriage.
who was called in to manage my pain. I was put on methadone and percocet but it barely touched the excruciating pain. No one believed my pain and because it was in several differant locations, they threw up their arms in despair. On the 7th day, I called the local Police because I was sure a nurse and my roomate were going to hurt me. I was completely paranoid. After that I was put in a private room and treated like the "problem of the floor".
I don't use it to get high, but it definitely is a great pain reliever and much less addictive than opioids. My main medication now is Tramadol for the pain and effexor for the depression. I think most chronic pain patients end up depressed, so using an anti depressant may help your mood and it also has some pain relieving effects. I also had huge knots in my back that were very aggravating and even with massage, they would never go away. So last year my chonic pain dr.
and just told him about my depression and anxiety...he prescribed me effexor for the depression and alprazolam for sleep and anxiety...hopefully ill be feeling better in no time...but today was a rough day!! tomrorrow hopefully will be a better day!!
It is very difficult to manage the pain, and I came off Morphine in June after being on it for 4 years. I take Effexor for depression, and most people who live with chronic pain do suffer from depression too! It feels great to be off the morphine, it was controlling my pain but gave me so many unbearable side effects, I would wake up in withdrawal every morning and was always in a brain fog.
I would suggest she look into her options of getting on an antidepressant. Effexor is designed to help with anxiety, and depression,, although again there's an upside and a downside. Effexor has taken me out of a severe depression within a week or two. It totally eliminated panic attacks, it is like a miracle drug in this respect ( for me it was) HOWEVER, again the wd's are a nightmare and you have to taper off this med.
You will be just fine, you will get this all straightened out and you will feel so much better and you won't have to worry anymore or live in fear. I took effexor xr and ativan. I know about the symptoms you experienced with the weird brainy feeling (the electrical shocks and zaps; I had them too, when I went off of my effexor.......
Contrary to what some believe, the patient is not experiencing active withdrawal during that period of time. Same with something like a taper off of meds like Effexor and Paxil...those also require a very slow and deliberate taper, to minimize effects of the discontinuation syndrome. Due too the long half life of sub, the last leg of the w/d may last a bit longer than the w/d of other opiates (ie Vicodin, Percocet, etc), but only by a few days.
Im only taking panadol and nurofen for migraines and sick feeling which works atm. Im taking a cold and flu tablet at night with valerian root in it. Everytime i talk i have to cough, its like i have dust in my throat and my throat gets irritated and my nose is starting to run. Pressed back space over 100 times writting this lol.
I'm also diagnosed with Major Depression Recurrent, and Type 2 Bipolar disorder. I take effexor xr 150 mg daily, lunesta at night to sleep, and ativan .5 mg prn, which I amazingly don't abuse. Its just the percs that I can't get away from. I like the energy I get, and the way I can just deal with life. I'm wondering if I permanently screwed up my brain years ago from the opiates and now I just have some sort of an endorphin deficit that percocet is filling.
So I dug up some more info that I wanna share ... in case you are dying of curiousity. Or need more info like I do. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- http***mb.rxlist.com/rxboard/ultram.pl?noframes;read=3179 not just for breakfast anymore Posted By: mkny Date: Friday, 21 October 2005, at 3:53 a.m.

Hi, my name is Alison I am currently "addicted" to painkillers. After enduring a terrible break-up I was so depressed that I wouldn't eat, sleep, or leave the house for months. My sister introduced me to roxycodone and finally I felt normal again. However, I have always had a good head on my shoulders and knew that I could not use drugs as a "cure", so I went to the doctor and got a script for zoloft to help me. The zoloft helped a lot, but not with my anxiety.
They only last a few seconds. The build and peak like labor pains. Say I'm in the kitchen and I'll feel it coming on so I have time to brace myself. I'll set down whatever it is i'm holding and get ready. I have to cross my legs, bend my knees, hold on to something, clench my body tight, and try to breathe. Thank God it only lasts a few seconds. My 14 yr. old son witnessed it yesterday and tried to call 911. I kept signaling him not to. I knew it wouldn't last long. My gyno.
My medications are , synthroid, percocet, effexor, xanax, and topamax. None of them are working and I go to see a ENT in 3 weeks, until then could someone please let me know what I might be dealing with? Thank you, very much!
