Common Questions and Answers about Vicodin dosing information

vicodin

After 3 years of 7 Vicodin Es's a day,I am now down to 4. Will I always continue to want them and I don't just mean the withdrawal cravings, I expected those. I have recently just admitted to myself that there is a twisted, sick part of me that does not even want to quit. I understand that I have to quit for many reasons, but that does not mean that I completely want to. I started taking them for chronic back pain, actually compression fractures.
The specific information that I think was most important related to how long to take it and if tapering off of it was difficult or not. The things I read were just crazy because they differed in so many ways. My family doctor just happened to be trained and licensed to prescribe Sub. I was very lucky to have him guide me and he still is guiding me. I see him once a month right now.
My life is so boring now that I feel vicodin is the only thing I have to have fun. 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.
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 got hooked on Vicodin after a serious knee injury in April. After the injury, doctors prescribed the drug to treat the pain, which was excruciating. It took nearly three months to get into surgery, so I was prescribed Vicodin again after that. I have reinjured the knee a couple of times, again more vicodin. I finally decided to get off this drug last week and it has been the hardest thing I've ever done.
I am embarrassed to admit that I am 42 years old and addicted to Vicodin ES - sometimes up to 10 tablets a day. It started over 5 years ago after a pinched nerve in my back. I have since developed chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia although I am not sure if the addiction has brought on the problem. Before that I worked out 6 days a week and taught aerobics.
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???
So here I go again. I've used Vicodin (6-10 pills a day for a year) following surgery with painful, slow-healing complications. Now, three weeks ago, I had surgery again for revision. My doctor's given me Dilaudid. I'm just finishing up a prescription for that (60 pills). My question is, will the Dilaudid w/d symptoms be similar? (I already went through Vic w/d's.) I really don't plan on quitting until my doc says I have to. In fact, that's another question!
Could this be caused by Vicodin or could something else be causing this? Any information is much appreciated.
I've been taking about 6 Vicodin a day for over & year & now I'm out. What will the withdrawal be like? Anything I can do as far as over the counter products or easy to obtain herbal or natural remedies? Please answer fast.
This week I am on about 560 mg of Vicodin, and having troubl;e sleeping.,. but doesn't it have to be done sooner or later? I am kinda of confused about how fast I should go??? Except for the sleep, the worst physical symptoms are over. Constipated, diarrea, some anxiety..but the sleep lack is horrible to me. I guess my question is....is it ok to use 1.25mg of Ativan while I get off the Vicodin and the Soma asap???? My first time on this board....
There is a conversion somewhere online as to how much hydro = sub for dosing amounts. I would say no more than 16mg daily of sub for your habit. I came off a huge oxycotin habit with suboxone, it made it so easy for me that I relapsed time and time again using the sub as a "crutch" each time. my habit ended up worse and worse. I felt slight withdrawals within 48 hrs of my last suboxone dosage they lasted a couple of days and here I am 5 Days clean today ! You can do it !
I have been weaning off of vicodin for about a month and a half and now in full detox. Since I started weaning off my vision have been very blurry, grainy and shaky. Has anyone else had this during withdrawals/detox? How long did I it last? Very scared!
I am a 40 yr old male and I have been taking 2-4 Vicodin a day for the past three years. A medical doctor prescribed it for me after it was discovered I suffered bone degeneration in my lower 2 disk vertebrea. At the time I thought little of taking a prescription painkiller. Now after my first 6 days of no longer taking Vicodin I am realizing how powerful of a substance it actually is. I'm having withdrawal symptoms I didn't expect.
Welcome to the Anxiety community! First, it sounds like you've taken all of the important steps to start addressing your anxiety. That's great. Definitely keep up with the therapy, that will be a great help to you. There could be two reasons why the medication isn't as effective as it could be. Klonopin is a long acting benzo that works best if it is dosed regularly versus on an "as needed" basis.
I live with someone who is battling Vicodin addiction (see my posted a question regarding this about 1 month ago) He still claims that he isn't using, however,he still goes through the process of obtaining scipts both via doctors and the Internet. He says that this is how he "copes" He goes throught the motions, but once the prescription comes, he throws it out.
Depends on how much you were taking and for how long...generally the worst is over in 3-4 days. I highly recommend, if you can, see your doctor and ask for clonidine, a blood pressure med that does wonders for withdrawl symptoms and perhaps something for anxiety. I'm on day 11 right now, started on clonodine on day 1 and I never really had a bad time..the med will make you somewhat lethargic and dry mouthed but it does help, as plenty of folks on here will agree.
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.
and are not of concern to me except the one for pain ... VICODIN. (hydrocodone) I have been taking two - ten 5/500's (prescribed) or 10/620's <-- (when I can "play up" my aches & pains to a sympathetic addicted neighbor) for approximately 3 months now. I know I have a problem with these insidious pills and have already experienced the leg spasms, irritability, etc. when I have not taken any.
First I want to say that I've been lurking here for about a week and your posts have been invaluable to me in helping me understand what is/was going on with me as I withdrew from Vicodin and Valium. I'm 25/male, and I have ulcerative colitis (inflammation of the colon). This past January, I came down with it although this time it was preceded by inflammation of the iris in my left eye. It was extremely debilitatingly painful, and i was prescribed vicodin for the pain.
Hello, After knee surgery 31/2 years ago I was put on Vicodin. Little did I know I would get hooked. I never really thought about it, since my doctor was giving it to me and I took it how he told me to. Well today is day 2 and night 3 of not having any vicodin. I have terriable legg cramps, sweets and I can not sleep. How long does this last? It is driving me crazy. I do not have any cravings for the vicodin. Just the withdraws are killing me. I have been drinking water and taking baths.
I thought I was going to die, and still feel like crap, even after dosing myself good. It is obvious that I need professional help. I will get that help and no matter what!!!!
For those who have used clondine for help with wd, what was your dosing amount? Is .1mg a low amount? Should that be helping her at this point? Does anyone know the usually dosing amounts to help for severe wd or what the max allowable for clonidine? Any information would be greatly appreciated.
The new limits state that a person should instead wait 6 hours before the next dose. Vicodin contains 500 mg of tylenol per tablet, and hence, only 8 tablets of Vicodin can be consumed daily. The important take away is that everyone that is on a tylenol-opioid combo product needs to calculate how much they are ingesting and watch the clock to make sure they are not ingesting too much.

So glad you are choosing to join us. This is the place to be if you want off Tramadol. Lots of love, information and empathy here!
Before you use any benzo, make sure you're aware of how often it can be safely taken. Different benzos have different dosing schedules. Taper your Valium dosage down after each day. The goal is to get through day 4, after which the worst WD symptoms will subside. You shouldn't need the Valium after day 4 or 5. During detox, hit the hot bath or Jacuzzi as often as you need to for muscle aches. Don't underestimate the effectiveness of hot soaks.
I am sorry but we cannot share dosing information with you. It is a violation of our guidelines. It is really a shame that you are unable to see a doctor and do the program properly. You may benefit from it. I suggest that you do some further reading about Suboxone, perhaps on their web site. Best of luck. I hope you get and stay clean.
i also am allowed to take vicodin two times a day. i am first very concerned about becoming addicted even though pain levels are excruciating and only take vicodin when times get very bad. doctor recently tried the 6 day steroid pkg and i had great releif from pain but i am scared to take them on constant basis as he suggests i do because 20 years ago on steroids i went into cushinoid state and took over 1 and half years to get off the prednisone at that time.
LOL Welcome and I hope you will make yourself at home. Snuggle down, get comfy. There's a lot of information and experience here with getting off Tramadol. It's not impossible, lots of peeps here now living Tram Free Lives! Love & Healing!
