Common Questions and Answers about Vicodin street names

vicodin

I had surgery 12-20-99. I have been taking Vicodin since Aug. I have just recently realized that I am addicted. This really scares me. I called my Doctor and he did not seem concerned . He said I was probably not adicted. I told him I tried not to take the drug for one day and nearly went insane. Shaking sick feeling horrible. Then he said well maybe you are addicted. He told me to just stop taking it. But I cant the withdrawal is horrible. I need some help. Please help me.
I have been hooked on vicodin for a little over a year starting legitimately with a script and now buying off the street. For the longest time I was at about 15-20 750's a day then in Oct, after a death in the family, it shot up to 70-75 a day. At almost 300 dollars a day, that didn't last long and I am now back down to about 20-25 a day. I have it set up to buy my last 40 today and then I will have completely exhausted all my resources.
Again I do not know your situation at all, I dont know how bad it has gotten, but I trully believe you need to approach this with all the love that you have for who your son was before he fell into this trap. At 23, and on the street, I cannot imagine your son wants to continue using, he feels that he has no choice, like I felt. My reccomendation is that you get some suboxone or subutex, whether from a doctor, or from elsewhere.
Hi all, I have been reading all of your wonderful ("wonderful" because they are something I can RELATE to) stories and words of hardship and wisdom at this site for a few months now. I too am an addict (Vicodin is my drug of chioice--average 8 per day)and I have been addicted to this evil drug for the last 1-2 years. Prior to that I abused Valium and whatever else I could get my hands on. I have had a love affair with various different pills for as long as I can remember.
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.
When taking a urine test, can they detect whether you've taken a Norco hydrocodone or a Vicodin hydrocodone? Aren't those just brand names or generic names? PLEASE HELP!!!!
Vicodin, Lortab, Norco, are all the same drug, just different names. Vicodin comes in 250mg, 500mg, 750mg, or 1000mg, the strongest. Percodan and oxycodone are similar. The only difference is that Percodan contains oxycodone and aspirin. The narcotic painkillers are only addiciting if you take them in large doses or for an extended period of time. Your personalities also play a role in whether or not you will become addicted.
I've been taking 30 Vicodin HPs a week for a year now, but I am still suffering and I am finding it difficult to concentrate after taking Vicodin. I want to stop taking Vicodin before I become more dependant on it than I already am. My Dr. has suggested switching to Ultram in the past. Some pharmacist say that Ultram is addictive while others say it is not. Before I switch to another medication I would like to know what I am getting myself into. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
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.
What is the difference in Vicodin and Hydrocodone? I have been reading many posts and everyone is taking Vicodin. Has anyone every heard of Norco? Is Norco as addictive? I am in shock at the number of people that are addicted to these things. I had a friend die from an accidental OD when he was almost 40. He had many back surgeries and lived his daily life in pain all of the time. Doc quit giving him his meds, so he bought them off the street. Any info anyone can give me will be helpful.
I had back surgery about 10 months ago. Before the surgery I was taking Vicodin on and off. Then after back surgery I was on Tylenol #3 with Codine. Now the last few months been on narcotics. I have back pain and started seeing a pain management doctor. He put me on all different types of drugs and I have had three steriod injections. I still take the Vicodin for pain and was up to six a day. (ON a really bad day). Is it addicting to take it for medical use?
Once a week, before I can pick up my refill, I have to severely curtail my intake and it's horrible - anxiety, night sweats and my mind won't shut off it's constant asking for pills. I feel as if vicodin has robbed me of my ability to be happy. So I've decided to taper. I've been taking 12-16 pills a day, yesterday I took 9, and today I'll take 8. I hope to continue the 8/day for a week then drop to 6/day. A week of 6s, then a week of 4s, a week of 2s ...
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.
//www.whitehousedrugpolicy.gov/streetterms/ByAlpha.asp?strTerm=O this was the one site that has street names for drugs...there are soooooooo many..check it out..I think people should be aware of the names things go by, especially if you have teens...
So I made an appointment for that day, He lived across the street from me and had an office out of his house, His wife did all the clerical work, and would even call in medications you requested, Many times without speaking to her husband for the ok. She was given permission to call in , soma 350, xanax of various strenths. I say this doc every month. He would rx #120 vicodin ES and #120 soma and 90 xanax bars. At that time the bars I would get rid of to offset my expences.
From what I have read, the methadone method seems to be the best, but does anyone know a way to get it online through the various pharmacies? I signed up for one of those services that gives you all the names of pharmacies or docs who will "diagnose" you online and then send you vicodin, but what I want it methadone to get off the vicodin and then say goodbye to both forever. If not online, can anyone help me with info about methadone clinics?
people don't over-dose on them or use them as street drugs since they have non-street drugs in them too. But... the problem with this is the things they put in commonly prescribed opiates in America are REALLY REALLY bad for migraine patients... you don't want to be taking tylenol (tylenol is in vicodin and oxycodone) or advil because they cause rebound headaches. Anyway...
Same way you get pot or crack or whatever? What is the street market value of pills? Vicodin for wisdom teeth? OMG! I had all my wisdom teeth pulled & think I took ibuprofin. As for pain, I have back pain & find that anti-inflammatories work better for the actual pain than something like vicodin does...
Sally will go right back.. I did. I had the most wonderful supporting husband out there, he wanted me to quit taking vicodin, and he had me detox twice with his help. I wasn't into that idea or ready I guess, so I kept going. I knew he would kick me out of the house, which he did. I didn't care. Our divorce was final on the 19th of this month. He has pretty much moved on, out dating and such, and here I sit, finally not taking vicodin anymore but all by myself. It sucks.
opioid derivatives like hydromorphone (Dilaudid) and dihydrocodeine (hydrocodone, brand names Loracet, Vicodin, et.al). In fact, heroin was originally created by a chemist who, among other things, was attempting to create a drug to cure morphine addiction.
Over four years experience —this includes heroin, and all other street drugs, alcohol, and prescription medications--has taught me that natural detox works 100 times better than detox formulated and predicated by the use of other mind altering chemicals. It is also important to recognize that there are many of you that were prescribed methadone for chronic pain. Yet one must recognize that the end result is the same—and therefore the remedies for withdrawal are the same.
I have both hydrocodone (Vicodin) and oxycodone (Percocet), and have only used them when it was necessary, because they have always made me nauseous. I have cut them all in half to take them, and know that I need to take them with food, and just before I lie down for the night. Could I be addicted to my pain medication? I would hate to think that I might be straddling the line between necessity and addiction.
When I met him I had seen that he was taking vicodin occasionally (getting them from co workers). I think that he initially had a prescription because of a back problem when i met him...but I am not sure how legit that is either. Anyways....fast forward three years and he is still taking vicodin but he is doing it semi secretly from me and I have NO idea what to look for to see if there is a problem since I know nothing about the pill.
He was complaining of a bad back so I offered him some of my vicodin I had left over from surgery in July . Not knowinf he had an opiate addiction until today. He called me at work and asked if he could have some of my vicodin again , I told him no, I had already gave him 25 of them. I went into the bottle today to get one and realized he had taken 3 more after I said no. I confronted him and found out he is addicted to them. what do I do.
The job I'm getting is on 500 California Street. I can take the Marin Ferry in every day. I'm a little schized by the idea of being so close to my old connects. I'm afraid that I might have a rough day and head up market and cop some OC's. Do you know any meetings around california and market?
Thanks to my husband all he has done is make me resent him, and make me want pain pills even more than before. I think it is better to pop a few pills then to find some drug on the street and smoke it or use a needle. I can not wait until February,I will be able to see my other doctor and get some pills. You think that being off of them for about 6 months now, why would I start up again?
These two LLMD are out there with Books and all and very well known, that is why I mention their names on this forum. I don't think an ER would help much and would probably look at you strangely if you mentioned the word herx. I actually prefer the charcoal. It does work.
In fairness to Vicodin Girl she did not write the message. I did. As you can see I have not left so fast. I just wrote that a few minutes ago.
I'm lucky, in that I have a husband who was a street drug addict many years ago, and is supportive, however, I have no friends to speak of, and this isnt the sort of thing you can bring up with the mums on the school run! I have become a virtual recluse, I only tend to leave the house if I have to, and then only if pushed by hubby. I also take them when I have argued with my husband, as it enbles me to switch off, and I feel less emtional anguish.
If you cross the line of physical dependency to the opiate base that makes up percocets, or hydrocodones (vicodin,norco,lortab and who knows what other names they have), you will get raked over the coals in both a physical and mental fashion you never could even conceive as being a byproduct of using these pills. The depression in fact could be directly related to the percocets and you not using for the past couple of days.
