Vicodin and wine

Common Questions and Answers about Vicodin and wine

vicodin

At least no more than the alcohol will.If you want you could ask your doc for a liver profile and they take blood and test the enzymes.I really doubt that you have anything to worry about.
I know I am over reacting, but I went out to dinner last night to celebrate my last riba pill and the end of treatment and had one glass of wine over the course of dinner. Do you think this will impact treatment success? At this point I am so worried it didn't work it is all that is on my mind.
actually, vicodin contains a large ammount of acetaminophen. con- suming alcohol and acetaminophen can and will damage your liver! ask your doc for a liver panel. it's a simple test, they will need to draw a little blood aqnd in a couple days you'll know.
I am a very healthy and active individual (I run 3 miles daily), and my consumption is almost like how people go home to a glass of wine. I merely pop a few pills.
I know vicodin are hard on the liver and mixing the two is that much worse but I don't think your taking enough to actually do any damage....never hurts to go get blood work done though just to have everything checked out....and yes....the mental cravings are brutal. Good luck my friend.
The only thing I am concerned about is that I am really tired all day long and then at night my anxiety kicks in and I take a xanax and drink 2 glasses of wine and a lunesta to get myself down so that I can sleep. My dr knows of this and does not approve but I have been a life long insomniac and I somehow put myself into a career where if I can't get rest and think, then my clients suffer and could possibly go to jail. When will I feel better?
i have a LOT of upper back, neck, can chest pain and have been prescribed two 500 mg Naprosyn and two Vicodin 5/500 to be taken daily -- one of each morning and evening. after reading up on vicodin and particularly this forum i became concerned that perhaps i was addicted since i have been taking these for about 6 months. so... i detoxed which only took about 4 or 5 days and only had problems sleeping during the nights - days were OK.
I really thought I was dying. My heart was pounding and I was sweating and couldn't sleep! I have also been having a stabbing pain at the bottom right side of my skull. My physical therapist said it could be from the hydro wd. But, I have not seen this symptom listed here by anyone. So that is my question. Has anyone experienced stabbing pain in lower right side on the back of head as a symptom of wd?
With no way out of the dinner and feeling soooo bad on my 4th day in, I took 1 vicodin and made it through dinner. The next day I took 1 1/2 and stayed at 1 1/2 for about a week... feeling a little better than I had during detox. Then I came into about 40 extra vicodin, and 25 percocet and suddenly was taking WAY too many pills again. Long story short, I'm on my 2 week cut back period before my refill.
I was taking 5-6 vicodin per day and just done with it...tapered to 2 a day within a week and now trying 5/mg am 5/mg pm but I havent felt much of the physical symptoms...a little sneezing, jaw cramping, headaches...am I just avoiding the real discomfort still coming??? Or do you thik I have made it over the hump.
There are periods where I use narcotics about a 4-6 weeks (vicodin and lately oxycontin) then I have to stop and it is so shattering. Many years ago I tried NA and it doesn't work for me. I also do not want to be put on shrink meds by a psychiatrist. What am I doing to myself medically? Because of life circumstances I don't see myself being able to stop soon. What is happening and what can I do?
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.
within the last 2 months, which is the most i could be pregnant, i have had at least 4 glasses of champagne, taken at least 6 lortab and maybe 15 vicodin, if that much! and all this was done not having any idea of pregnancy. can this harm the baby? painkillers? and the champagne? i only took the painkillers for my bad back pain. please be honest!
Im not a big drinker at all, maybe couple times a month with friends watching football I'll have a beer or two, and Ive found that I really dont feel well later on and even the next morning and Im not one to have hangovers, but Ive decided no drinking at all until Im off suboxone. No one can say for sure its absolutely safe to drink any amount of alcohol while on varying amounts of suboxone.
I actully slept well, and ate well last night using only Benadryl, (thanks for the advice) I've decided to put down the wine and the benzos I was using for sleep (very little benzos) I don't need them. What's better, I feel like I'm ME again, I don't want to have unrealistic hopes for the future, and I know there are still a few things I need to straiten out in my life (my bf still uses) but I actually don't mind being alive today. Today is an OPPURTUNITY not an OBLIGATION.
I got some advice from a friend who had the same problem and she said that she drank a glass a wine 3x a day during her detox off of opiate and it really helped her, its probley a good idea for me because I know i know i know I will neverg et addicted to alchole, really dont like it that much. Has anyone you known ever tried this? Or is this a over all bad idea?
I started Vicodin for neck and back trauma - I fell in 2001 and it really messed me up. My back and neck are ruined. I just don't know how to take it as prescribed, and I don't want to confess to my Dr that I have a problem because then I have to deal with the pain if I need the drug. I know I am not making any sense at all, just wanted to share something.
Umm im JJ and im 19 and im addicted to vicodin and drinking alcohol. ive been doing this since i was 17 and just recently i was hospitalised for an overdose on it. i was wondering if there is any way to gradually stop this addiction because i dont want to go to rehab..
Not having a good night and thinking about forgetting the whole thing and just taking a pill. Have given up my evening wine even and still this *****. I think my husband is considering divorce. I am so cranky.
So I have very little psychological dependence on Vicodin, and right now I've got a headache that 3 advil, 3 excedrine, and a fioricet only managed to cut about a third off of. I had another one like this about 3 weeks ago that I couldn't do anything about, and it's killing me. Taking all those painkillers seems a little excessive, and I'm not sure but also seems like a mild overdose. My question is...
I thought it was meth because of past problems but he ran to his truck and pulled out a bottle of Vicodin. He said these were the problem and that he would stop taking them because he loves me so much and did'nt want to lose our life together. It was shocking and scary, but I was also relieved and happy-(understatement) that we could now be together after all the years of feeing blocked out of his life without understanding.
I dont take them as they are supposed to (they have a time release coating which i remove) and compared to percocets and vicodin which are usually 5mg (hydrocodone) they are much stronger. So i end up doing much more opiate wise when i do the oxy's. For instance a 40mg oxycontin tablet would equal about 8 percs or vics. When i have the percs or vics I never do that many in a day. I usually will do about 3 or 4.
Both the neurologist and my OB have assured me that vicodin is safe, but of course they are assuming that I'm taking them on an "as desperately needed only" basis, they have no idea how many I'm taking. I have really been beating myself up about my lack of self control, but I can't stop myself. I have 3 kids under the age of 8, work full time, go to school full time and am very active in my church.
you are making alot of changes at once. congrats on the wine and vicodins, wow that's great..be kind to yourself. stay with us, post and keep posting, let us know how you are doing. remember one day at a time....
Well, what kind of led me here was the fact that the vicodin has run out and no way of a refill. So I haven't had any today. The last one I had was about 8 pm last night. I'm okay so far but I know it's gonna be bad tonight. I'm really stressing about that and I'm gonna have to continue going to work while I'm going through this. It's not gonna be pretty.
I too will take Tylenol cold or allergy meds when im w/d i looked up Vicodin and other meds that i take and read alot about them and figured out they have alot of different components to them. I want to take the jump but i just haven't had the guts to do it yet. But by reading these stories it is really giving me the strength to at least begin. People put a huge stigma on abusing prescription drugs. i used to. I have sense realized that it can happen to anyone!
there is power in prayer......go to JESUS!!!!!! there is nothing he cant do.......TRUST ME.
Hey everyone, I've been on this site for about 2 hrs as I've only been awake that long from withdrawaling from Vicodin for 2 days now. I have been addicted for about 1.5 years now & its become nothing but hell! I can't get up out of bed unless I know I have some, if I don't have any, I don't have energy to do anything! For about 4 months now.. I've been taking 40 mg a day everyday.. sometimes more. Its time for me to quit this.. NOW!
You will one day look at your kids and remember how you were on the pills and how you acted and you will just want to hug them and cry and say sorry. When this happens and you are your good old self again you will relize why i am saying that it is so worth it. Good luck to you and if you need anything let me know. By the way were do u live?
I am also as addicted to Vicodin as anyone can get. I take up to 50 vicodin ES's a day and have been for years. I have been in rehab once before 4 years ago and lasted less than a week and have been taking them almost every day since then. I have once again come clean to my wife and family today and finally admitted that I was an addict.
