Percocet and low blood pressure

Common Questions and Answers about Percocet and low blood pressure


See if his doctor can write him 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. Clonidine is very helpful for the creepy-crawly feeling and control of blood pressure variations. It will make the withdrawals easier. Valerian and Magnesium is sometimes helpful remedies over the counter.
My mom has low blood pressure as well, and we both have ulcers. (I'm on nexium for those). The day I fainted and "seized" I had taken Tramadol for pain and Zorofran for nausea, neither of which had given me an adverse reaction before. I'm into bodybuilding, so I'm usually VERY well-hydrated, especially if I take any supplements.
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. 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. If you click on my name and then click on blogs you will see one under that heading. Take a minute to read it.
It all started when i got a tooth pulled. I was on the percocet, while on them i still had to go to work and it just made the day fly by. It made me concentrate more..It made everything better....until now. I am so consumed with this ****** addiction and im ready to kick this habit.It has effected myself,my family,my financial security and my relationship...I spend about $80 a day 7 days a week. You do the math..Its terrible.
but my Dr put me on 50mg from 7.5/500 of the percocet. I had never heard of Tramadol and when I ask the pharmasist how it compared to the percocet, he said it was way less effective, so I was confused why my Dr took me from such a high dose of percocet to such a low dose of Tramadol...I keep reading that people say after a while of not being on the meds they realize the pain isn't as bad as they thought...I am just scared...
I see my GYN tomorrow, to discuss my meds while pregnant (I also have to take 2 blood pressure meds as I have renal artery stenosis and ultimately have high BP). general practitioner told me yesterday that my GYN is NOT on board w/ being on the percocet while pregnant (and it sounds like I may have to switch BP meds too). My pain magt dr. told me that it's not an ideal situation to be on percocet while pregnant...but that you can't just come off of it either.....
Clonidine is very helpful for the creepy-crawly feeling and control of blood pressure variations. It will make your withdrawals easier. Valerian and Magnesium is sometimes helpful remedies over the counter. The residual symptoms of insomnia and depression can last another few months. Thus, it is not easy, but it gets better and better over time and you can look forward to a drug free healthy energetic you in the future.
Too many people have trouble with it, and I don't think it will help your withdrawal much.) Clonidine, a blood pressure med, is often prescribed for people going through withdrawals, and a lot of people say it helps by a lot. It's not addictive, and you could ask your doctor about it.
If you feel like you are going to pass out when you stand up then your blood pressure is too low and you need to cut back. You will also need immodium and an over the counter sleeping medication.
I know that this was because of the percocet use. DONT do this to your baby, any mg of oxycodone is too much because it stays in your blood and theirfor your baby's. Just because he isnt born addicted doesn't mean he will have SERIOUS neurological problems growing up.
I go to a pain clinc where they put me on Neurontin which makes me too tired to work and tried Bio feedback which didn't work for me. The Percocet helps the pain but I feel I am addicted. Some days I feel like I need something really bad and I do not know what it is and then I realize after I take the Percocet I feel better. Sometimes I have that needing feeling during the day and want to take the medicine just to make it fo away but know I have to work.
Well, I am not a doctor, I would think that the fact that you are getting off them now would greatly avoid the risk of WD in our baby. Just be very careful to work with your Dr. And check your blood pressure. They day my daughter was delivered via emergency c-section, I could not take a pill and started to go into WD. My blood pressure shot up and I started to go into convulsions. The baby went into distress that's why I had to deliver 3 months early.
Well, my mouth still feels raw, and am getting more little blisters, and I think it may be a reaction from the Percocet. Bob, I know you are gonna make it, and my heart will be with you. I know it won't be an easy thing to do, but you will make it because you want to. I am trying to find a site on aol, that use to be here, ask a dr or something like that. Do you know what I'm referring to? Have a great holiday yourself, if I don't hear from you before.
You should return to him/her and address these issues. If you want to discontinue the percocet he should be willing and able to assist you. You are certainly welcome here but we do have an Substance Abuse Community that you may want to post on also. Others will post with their experience and suggestions. I wish you the best and urge you to contact your physician. Please let us know how you are doing.
Right now I take on percocet pill I think it's 10/650 mg (yeah I know it is)before bed and it helps me to sleep and relieves my pain til the next night. So that's it. Again thank you for your responses and if anyone has anything else to add I will appreciate that also. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Clonidine regulates blood pressure, creepy-crawly feeling and will make withdrawals easier. Please don't start taking the opiates again as it will only throw you back into withdrawals once you stop again, or make you relapse. Valerian and Magnesium is sometimes helpful remedies over the counter for mild sedation, sleep and muscle relaxation. But, seriously, you must be completely committed to the goal of quitting.
You will need something to help you sleep (Clonodine is a life saver, helps significantly with the restless arms/legs by lowering your blood pressure), and perhaps ambien or something else to help you sleep. I wish you the best of luck, it will get better! Never ever ever ever give up. If you fail, hop back on that train! Your life is more important than some pills.
Right now I'm adjusting the amount of my blood pressure medication because it was going up a bit and I am taking my Ativan (but not as prescribed...much less than what is prescribed). I hope I can do this...What I want to do is to wait until next week to see that doctor...then walk in and say look...see what I did WITHOUT your help. Then I will talk to my pharmacist who I am sure will be able to recommend a good supportive doctor to help me with my other issues and my pain management.
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..???

The goal of compliance is to maintain an even blood plasma at the minimum amount to treat PAIN and NOT to produce euphoria (a high). Since the blood plasma levels are lower, the levels of dopamine at the synaptic cleft do not spike so the receptor sites do not downregulate or decrease in number in response to the initially MUCH higher level of dopamine released as a result of spiking.
They gave me percocet. They sent me home with percocet and naproxen. I haven't used them. Only mild cramping but here almost 3 weeks later and I started a light period. BUMMER. they don't me it may not work.
In addition, I have always had EXTREMELY low blood pressure, as does my whole family. My entire life my BP has been 80/60. When I was in labor, on Pitocin and another induction medication, with NOTHING for pain, it elevated to approx. 110/75, which was by FAR the highest it has ever been. Today, the automatic BP machine registered my blood pressure as 153/118. I am not under stress (I have a high stress job, but love it).
He said that I shouldn’t take it if my blood pressure is normal because it will lower my blood pressure… However, when he checked my blood pressure (then his own, LOL) mine was very high: 160/120+, so he said he’d prefer that I go to my Internist to get the clonidine… He said my elevated blood pressure is the norm because my body is suffering from withdrawal, from the lesser amount of daily opiates… But, that it is wicked high, too high, but not stroke-levels… (I’ll make an appt w/my Intern
The next day my doc. started me back on the low percs. Then I had to wait to see the surgeon a week. He ordered a MRI and blood test to rule out recurrent herniated disk and diskitis. Sure enough...after all the embarressment..I was right...a "NEW HERNIATED DISK" with possible nerve impingement. Then, 2 days after having the MRI, I got hurt in a car....I had a buldging disk above that I felt herniate, and it felt like something happened above that level also.
1 mgs I weigh a lil less than 100lbs so I only take half of one twice a day.. they reduce your blood pressure therefor taking away the jumping out of your skin feeling and the heart racing.. they help alot.. docs can also give patches of it if you prefer.. hope that helps.. IF you need anything just go to the top and "post new question" and put my name in there.. I will get to you as soon as I can...
Was ridiculed, brushed aside, shouted out and condescended to. Lyme can evade detection in BOTH blood and spinal fluid so it is ultimately a clinical diagnosis. You don't have to recall a bite or have gotten the rash to get it. I sure didn't.
I remember feeling irratible, in pain, felt blood pressure was elevated and thoght this caused my discomfort and anxiety. I also notice I would get bowel irratation and had the runs. Crampy, hot spells, cold sweats...all around flu-like sypthoms. Yet after all these years, and it has been 3 or 4 years of this.....I never realized that what I was experiencing was drug withdrawals ! Now I am pretty sure I am after seeing the previous posts.
You can always avoid simple carbohydrates and sugars, continue the balanced diet with primarily protein as your major component but the desired carbs and add fresh vegetables and fruits for the minerals and vitamins, drink required quantity of water. Check your blood pressure and other basic parameters like haemoglobin etc and if everything is normal do not worry as they would not eliminate your from the military after this.
So their is the problem I cant clear out my left nostril except for sniffing and I am getting a lot of sinus pressure (is that normal and will it go away) which makes sleeping very hard. I can handle a stuffy nose as long as there is no sinus pressure and I don’t want to take pseudo ephedrine at night cause it will keep me up. Any suggestions on my situation would be appreciated. My doctor is not in on the weekend that is why I didn’t ask him.
