Percocet and night sweats

Common Questions and Answers about Percocet and night sweats

percocet

So I stopped taking the Perc 9 days ago. I've already been through the chills and sweats at night and my bowels are starting to be normal again although sleep is being very elusive. My question is I have a couple other symptoms that I haven't seen mentioned. Has anyone experienced any ankle swelling or swelling in general? I also have had several red spots on my body that itched terribly and once I scratched the itch, the area was hard as a rock.
I have been on Prednisone for about 6 years and in the last few months have gotten off. I am thrilled and would like to be off Percocet. I dont know if my symptoms are from the Percocet use itself at this point. I have not taken any since Sunday night and it is now Friday morning. I have had an unusally upsetting week with other issues - or maybe it is related. Anyway, when can I expext to be clear of the Percocet?
I still got hit hard with night sweats, aches, and diarrehea..This past Christmas though, with the week and a half taper, I was literally void of the sweats,aches, and only had stomach problems for a day which I used Immodium to help with..I only needed the Immodium for a day..I still had anxiousness, headaches and insomnia issues, but overall the wd's were mild compared to my previous cold turkey from 120mgs in April and the short taper quiting last August post surgery I had in June..
So I’ve been taking pain meds for nearly 7 years for medical and then recreational use. Was recently averaging 100mg daily of Percocet. I do have a legal script and continue to misuse my meds. Finally have came to the crossroads and ran short on meds. Made the decision just days before that this is and started weaning down somewhat. So withdraws began during the weaning process about 72 hours ago. Took 45 mg yesterday and down to 10 mg today @ 630 AM; now 1:16.
I have only been taking percocet for less than 3 wks now, (had an Acl repair on my knee) and by wk 2 I was on 3 percs a day, then when I dropped down to 2 thats when the horrible withdrawals came. I would get horrible stomach cramping, diarreah, and sweats for about 5hrs or untill my next dose. Then I realized i was in fact having withdrawls and started breaking up the pills through out the day, and I have enough pills left to drop 1/4 pill every 2 days.
I attempted to try last weekend and broke into cold sweats the first day. I took my last pill yesterday about 1:30pm. My belly is already starting to hurt. Can anyone give my some advice on what all to expect and if it should be a horrible thing for me. I know that I cannot continue to take meds as they were starting to feel like I "needed" them to just get by. I know that not to be true and have asked not to be given another scrip. So now what????
Hang tight you know it is a bit of a fight...
ask a dr to prescribe clonidine, it help with the anxiety,cold sweats and mellows u out. Beleive me its a must but if youre on day 2 u can prob do without. 2 Dont take immodium till u actually start the runs. What you are doing noe is causing major constipation and will or can cause problems. My 1st bowel mpovement was on day 4 Both my detox actually. By getting that first case of the runs, you will rid of all the toxins pilled up. If u take immodium now u will pass an elephant....
I am not getting the burn you feel from a good work out just achey strange ****. And my nose runs every now and then. No sweats or anything like I had when I stopped the morph. I also don't feel like I am going to die anymore just weak and achey and not quite my self. Docs want to fuse my lower spine and add some more titanium but I am to affraid of taking this **** again. I don't crave it or want it, I just don't ever want to feel that kind of sickness again.
I took hydrocodone, but I can tell you that if you are committed...and it sounds like you are...and you have a plan...and sounds like you do....you will beat this. Lots of people here have had percocet addictions and I am sure they will be along to give support, but I just wanted to say welcome to the forum and hang in there. When you need support, post and someone will help you. Post anyway to let us know how you are doing.
What I would do is wake up in the middle of the night and have to change my pajamas, and sometimes even the sheets, but i never took a shower in the midddle of the night because i knew that i would be drenched again by morning anyway. Oh it does feel so good when those sweats are overwith! not too much longer.
hi ricart, thanks, ya i guess so eh, from what i been reading some peeps get none, at least i get a couple hours, and i did sleep a bit longer last night then the night before... but hoping to have an even better sleep tonight!!
I cant say ive tried to go cold turkey (atleast not willingly) but there has been times i havnt had, and the withdraw was UNBAREABLE. the cold sweats and aches and pains are one thing, but once its time for sleep FORGET IT, i toss and turn and cant stay still, restless leg is a HUGE issue for me, it gets to the point where i give up completly, by the next day im so desperate i usually call every single person i know until i find one, ...
It started with lortab 5mg a few times a day... Then after a few surgeries later I was prescribed to lortab 7.5 and Percocet 7.5 for the pain. I am about 8 weeks out of surgery, and the dr. Is still prescribing me these meds. Tomorrow will be day 2 without anything. I have asked my boyfriend to hide them from me, because I know that I was getting out of control, and could not believe how many prescriptions these dr. Keep giving me.
I just started that last night and finally slept after not sleeping for 5 nights and I have to take 2 tabs instead of 1 to sleep at night..but I still get night sweats and that's why I am seeing the doc tomorrow. But, I also had twins 10 months ago, so allot of the night sweats can be hormonal according to the DOC. I will let you know what the Detox DOC says tomorrow. Maybe I'll have more info by then! Take care..let me know if this helps.
I was also titrating down off the percs and thought I was doing ok. Low and behold, I'm not doing at all well. I'd asked him for help and he said I shouldn't be having these withdrawal problems and sent me on my way with no further appts. I had a full rx for the percs left and have been fighting to titrate down off them on my own. I'm managing to take 3/4 of a pill roughly every 5 hrs. before I go nuts from shaking, shortness of breath, rapid pulse, sweats/chills, the diarreha(sp).
I admitted to my doctor my addiction, and he put me on suboxone. I've been on it for 2 days now and its very hard. cold sweats, headaches, shakiness, and most of all, i cannot sleep. I go to bed now around 2am and sleep until about 10am - wake up and feel sick and antsy. I hope these symptoms calm down and that I can get back to a normal life soon. Its only been 2 days. I hope after this weekend, my body is done with the withdrawls. I'm depressed and feel so alone.
I never usually do more than 60mg in a day. When im not using I have the cold sweats and restless leg(which is usually why I keep doing). I want & need to quit. Noone knows besides my friend . I hate this feeling. What helps with withdrawals.. and I need support so I dont use again..
I know until my back is fixed I have to take them, they are all that helps but I also know that I am addicted to them and will soon be taken off.....THAT SCARES THE HELL OUT OF ME. About a week ago I ran out of the percocet and spent a night in HELL!!!! I had NO idea what was going on - I couldn't sleep, I hurt ALL over from my head to my toe, I was shaking, and wanted to die. That was the worse feeling I have ever had in my life.

I think you need to put down the percocet and xanax and talk with your doc about some clonidine. By your own admission, the percocet isn't giving you much relief. You have been on it for a while, trying to get off the sub. What's going to happen when you stop the percocet? Back to sub to get off of the percocet? Can't keep that up or you will just continue a bad cycle! And the xanax can bite you QUICK. Before long you will find yourself having to taper off of it, if you don't already!
Hello, I'm a 34 year old single mother and I'm addicted to Percocet. It started like everyone else I'm sure with a dr script , then before I knew It my grandmother was selling them to me.. She has since passed away I was promoted to my job and moved to a new state and I have been taking them steadily now for 3 years! I can't believe it has been three years! I am done! I don't want to take them anymore!

For the first few days, I experienced nausea, night sweats, vivid dreams and dizzyness along with drowsiness during the day and sleepless nights. My system had a hard time adjusting to the Fentanyl. This is why I say that I feel your dose will be too high for you. You may be really uncomfortable for a while which will make you not want to continue the new med. It took me a good 4-6 weeks for my body to finally adjust enough to where I felt almost normal again.
I'm opiate, oxy addict too, it took 4 days for me to get over the watery eyes, runny nose, nausea and vomiting, flushed face etc. Now going into day 7 and the chills and cold sweats have just let up. You CAN get there!
So, obviously he's an idiot because percocet is oxycodone, and so is oxycontin, right? So he won't refer me for any program. And of course, I've got a ton of pills left, I don't know, probably ten 20 mg. extended release, and 25 5 mg percocet. I anyone's help on how to taper myself without going crazy. Plus, I don't even know if I have the willpower to do it. I'm sure once I stop taking them I'll be slammed with chronic migraines again.
Last night was day 3 for him, and it was by far the worst night for him. He slept on the couch last night because he knew he'd be tossing and turning all night and didnt want to keep me up. When his alarm went off at 7:30 this morning for work I went out to tell him. Before I could say anything he said "I haven't been to sleep yet" so he called off. I am just really hoping that things get better for him tonight. I hate seeing him like this.
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.
After smoking about 6 30mg percs last night I TOLD my self it was the last time and that I will get clean starting tommrow. Today came And I was good untill about 6pm where I began to have cold sweats and my body began to ache uncontrolably. I had to go out and get my fix. I went out and smoked my 90mg of percs. =( as I was doing this I was researching diets as I am very into fitness. I knew about detoxing diets. And I started one tonight. It is my own variation from the actual diet.
I have personal experience with the devil called Percocet and was addicted and buying for over 4 years. Percocet really grabs your soul and makes you believe you cannot live/function without it. I am about 73 days out and although I am going through a bit of a rough patch right now, I want you to know that it is totally doable. Many of the 73 days were very very good. W/D is tough, 5-7 days of flu like symptoms and despair. But you will get through it! Take the leap and keep on posting.
