Vicodin and coffee

Common Questions and Answers about Vicodin and coffee

vicodin

So tomorrow it will be 1 week since I have taken a pill and for the first time today I got up and made a pot of coffee. Is it normal that I honestly feel like I can fun for miles and my heart is racing after 1 cup?? Does this have something to do with not having the vicodin in my system?
They look completely different. So be careful next time lol. And u are fine. And baby will be fine. And drug free.
I am battling an addiction to Vicodin stemming from a root canal which I underwent nearly 2 years ago. I have smoked pot years. Daily, in fact. It has torn me up. My confidense, my spirit; everything.
I'm exhausted again today and need to go to work and am thinking about drinking coffee to get going here, any advice?
Once im laid down it's ok. And my doctor told me it's fine to breastfeed on vicodin just not right after you take it.
I looked at some of the posts and I can relate. I was on Vicodin ES for 4 months now. I have been off Vicoden ES for 4 days now and I feel like hell. I fell in April and I have herniated disc, fibermialgia, arthritus and now a wrinched shoulder after the fall. I also take klonopin .5 mg 2 times a day I was on 1mg twice a day and have decreased the dosage because I wanted to get off it and the Vicodin ES. So can someone help me with the symptoms? What can I do?
How long do you think it will take to be over the withdrawal from both Vicodin and Soma? My adult daughter is going through withdrawal, and it's been about 2 weeks so far. She is very emotional, starts crying easily, and has trouble getting any real sleep. I keep reassuring her that this will start to fade, but so far, it's been rough. Any advice???
I'm draggin right behind you! blaaaah! For me, even though I know its not gonna stay put for too long... but I gotta keep eating!! Nothing too heavy, but something that you love to eat, so it feels good. Getting wrapped up in pills can tend to lead you away from enjoying all 3 meals of the day. I tended to do coffee & pills for the first half of the day and go big with dinner. But now I need to get my old eating habits back...
energy returns...exercise and the vitamins help...amino acids like Amino Fuel and your B vitamins and Calcium/magnesium at night...I have used EmergenC from walmart to help...I dont like the taste of red bull but it helps in the mornings...
I am hoping the Doc or others might have further info for me on what to expect now that I've officially left detox from Vicodin and have 7 days under my belt. Today my nerves were wrecked and was so jittery and antsy. I finally asked the nurse for clonopine so i took one a couple hours ago and that seems to have helped. Will this go on for some time or will I start to notice a difference in a week or so?
However, I know that vicodin is ruining my life. It's like my coffee. When I wake up in the morning, it's the first thing I do. The 120 pills a month that my doctor prescribes me is not enough.. Now, I'm buying them off a friend of a friend regularly at $4 a pop.. spending all my money. It depresses me that I'm so dependent on something just to feel normal. I cry just thinking about my life prior to vicodin, and wonder if I can ever be happy without it again. I'm starting my detox today.
I just work, take vicodin, work out, take vicodin, come home, and take vicodin. Maybe some shopping in there. One of my favorite things in the world is to take vicodin and go shopping. I need some advice on how to help kick this thing at home. With my job there would be no way I could go to a rehab with out everyone in the world finding out and losing my job. I like my job. Please someone give me some advice.
My advice that I do like to share on here, that has worked the best for me is meditation... Every morning I like to grab a cup of coffee and a cig, and go outside and say 10 positive thoughts or affirmations about myself, that I can repeat to myself through out the day when **** starts getting bad or I feel like using... Or I journal, but no matter what... every morning after I do that... I go for a walk/jog... I seriously think that excerise has helped me the most...
So in the hospital they gave me morphine and vicodin for the pain. Then the doc gave me a RX for the vicodin. well it was hydrocodone, not sure if that makes a difference. But anyway, I had taken vicodins in the past, starting out for my endo pains (my friends mom has an RX and would just give them away) and then I started taking them when I didn't have pain. This was about 6 months ago. So when I got the rx I was aware of what it was and all that, and I didn't exceed more than 4 a day.
I have been off them for only two days and the withdrawls are hell. How long do they last and what is the best way to deal with them?
resless leg syndrom,and vicodin withdrawl... how can i help this problem...
How do I wean myself off a 2 year 4 pill a day vicodin habit without going into treatment? Kicked booze once cold turkey but this one is tough. Don't want my grown kids to know, and my husband is very ill, so this has to be a private battle with the help of this site. Any really good over the counter stuff I can use? I have celexa from several years ago but it gave me the creeps so I quite taking it.
It was a life saver! Other than fatigue and light-headedness, I felt great. Once I had the Vicodin AND clonidine out of my system, I felt perfect. So since I was on the clonidine, I'm not sure how long the withdrawels lasted. Vicodin doesn't stay in your system too long, usually just a couple of days. Stay strong, tell someone, get supportive people around you, and most important....Don't be embarrassed! NO ONE can knock you for trying to stop this. Good luck, I did it...you can too.
I have been taking Vicodin, Oc's, whatever I can get my hands on for about 2 years. Before that , I was taking stimulants, adderol,. ritalin, anything to get me "motivated" as I call it. Then I discovered the pain meds, and life was great! Until I couldn't get them anymore. Then it sucked for a while, then I got more, etc I 'm sure you all know the story. Well, sparing all the details I decided to get clean, kind of by choice, today is day 4 clean of any opiates.
My injury and subsequent problems brought on depression and low self esteem as well as weight gain and I found the Vicodin gave me a "euphoric feeling" and I could get through the day. What I found amazing is that my doctor kept okaying my prescriptions. I have tried many times to quit - sometimes as long as two weeks but the utter exhaustion and depression made it hard to keep going. Through this I have managed a full time job and taking care of a teenager.
For 30 years, I've consumed 1 or 2 cups of coffee each morning, in part to wake up and in part to stay "regular." Now that I'm 8 days into total abstinence from Vicodin after 3 years of severe (10-20 tabs/day) active addiction, should I stop drinking the coffee because of the bowel stimulant effect? If I don't drink the coffee, I get a bad headache (severe headaches got me started on the Vics in the 1st place). Any advice? Tough it out/take ibuprofen (yet another liver killer...)?
I tried red bulls and coffee yesterday along with ice cream, gum, and aspirin but none have any effect on me just feel awake but weak I also stopped smoking yesterday but only had the urge to smoked when I was under the influence of Vicodine as well so it two habits I am fighting off. Q1: how long will I continue to feel like this, Q2: Any home remedies that can help with the withdrawals?Q:3 Any over the counter medicine that will help with the pain?
I know, not for everyone, but it is seeming to work for my personality. I took my last piece of Vicodin yesterday and today was my first day without! Wow, I can actually "FEEL"... I can't believe how numb I had become to certain things. I got up this morning and made a big bonfire outside with my two little boys. (9 and 10 yr old). We ate pancakes and drank coffee by the fire. It was really so nice.
5 and maybe it will help me sleep Ido suffer from a chronic nerve condition that is to long for me to spelll the doctors tried everything nothing seemed to work they even gave me tramadol but that just made me convulse on the floor so I was given vicodin... and the xanax is for the pulsating in my ear ...ear noise....I have a problem I found 5 vics stashed in one of my travel bottles and I want to take one so bad.... should I flush them?....
You may have been truly addicted if you had been taking stronger narcotics but since you aren't in pain and it was just vicodin, maybe you can just leave it behind and not take any more and not see how addicted you could get.
Start slow, like soup and toast. Stay away from spicy foods and milk products for now. Thelack of energy, listlessness, etc., is all part of it. Unfortunately, everyone is different and we each go thru w/d's in a different way. If you don't mind my asking: Does your doctor know what you are doing? Why don't you share just a little about your background and I will bet ppl will have other suggestions. I am sitting here having my AM coffee, so I will be around for a while.
Hawke - Depression runs on one side of my family and on the other side is alcoholism. I am completely off the Vicodin pills. No one knows but you and others on this board. I am amazed that I have been able to keep it secret. My husband suspected and I cut back once he started to suspect. Depression is still bad but not as bad as last evening. I almost caved last night and took 1/8 of a pill but didn't. Thank God I have Seroquel, it helps with the anxiety and sleep.

Hi! I'm having some questions about some news I received from my doctor today and wondering if anyone could help me with some answers. I've been prescribed vicodin ES for the last 3 months or so. I take them approximately 3 x's a day. They were given to me for a chronic back problem I've had since my early teens. (I'm 27 now). I was given a drug test at my doctors office followed by one at the hospital. I assumed that this was to be sure that i hadn't been abusing any medications.
I have severe energy issues and I drank one cup of coffee a day but if you are having anxiety issues I would not recommend it. Alcohol would be considered another drug. Can you get a dr to prescribe you Clonidine? It is very helpful for opiate withdrawal. It is not addictive.
