Break vicodin in half

Common Questions and Answers about Break vicodin in half


Avatar n tn m literally not feeling any pain? Should I break the Vicodin in half and take half doses? Should I switch to prescription Tylenol instead (I have it leftover from a different oral surgery)? It's just freaking me out that I literally feel no pain right now even though the anesthetic has long worn off. I would really appreciate if you could share your experience with your wisdom teeth removal. THANKS FOR YOUR TIME.
Avatar f tn How many times a day were you taking the pills? For only two months of use, you should be able to kick this fairly easy. Don't get me wrong, this is a hard habit to break but doable. Vicodin will only continue to keep narcs in your system and you wont withdrawel. You need to quit today. Flush anything you have down the toilet and start fresh. After 3 days you should start feeling alittle better. Just keep telling yourself you want off. You will get there.
Avatar f tn they couldnt give me anitbiotics so they gave me vicodin believe it or not I was only aloud to take 1 pill in a 24 hour period so I would break it in half and take one half in the morning and one half at night
Avatar n tn It worries me, because I have to have to tooth pulled in a week and will have to take more Vicodin again then. Surely would appreciate any words of advice. Thanks!
Avatar f tn Not sick anymore, Is this all in my head.....I just really like vicodin..........but would be so happy if I could just stop taking them for good, I don't know if I am strong enough , guess I will find out FRiday. I don't think I can take 3 a day ONLY like I am suppose to??? I don't know If I dare try.
Avatar m tn I ask because I was addicted to Vicodin for a month and a half AFTER quitting Zoloft. I was taking 60-80mg of hydrocodone a day during that month and a half period. Would taking Vicodin weaken my body and prolong the withdrawal process from Zoloft?
1494729 tn?1304881080 s the best way to quit and im on my second day i feel kinda weird but i use to snort like at least 6-7 a day for like the past year and a half..any info would be helpful..thanks.
Avatar f tn If it is a small yellow oval pill and is scored in the middle so it can be broken in half it could be Norco or Hydrocodone 10mg with Acetaminophen 325mg. Hydrocodone with Acet. is also known as Vicodin. That is what I take and I usually tell others it is Vicodin because most do not know what Norco is. It's just easier to say that instead of explaining all the different brand names of the products with Hydrocodone and Acet.
Avatar f tn Also taper down to as small as you can break up the pill. Like a half of a 500. 2 1/2 mgs. I tried quitting a million times and couldn't handle the withdrawl. But this time when i tappered in a months time, i had no withdrawl at all. I seriously don't know how these people do it cold turkey!
Avatar f tn I have been taking vicodin for about 4 years. At first I took it recreationaly maybe 5 times a month. Over time I began using it every weekend, all weekend long (but never during the week). After a while I got into a car accident and was prescribed to Vicodin ES. I began taking them more and more. Soon I was diagnosed with post-herpetic neuralgia (after having shingles) and have had a scrip of Vicodin ES for about 2.5 years that is up to 90 count.
Avatar f tn my mother had a frozen shoulder and they had to break it loose...not pleasant but then she healed...they have to break the adhesions so your shoulder will be free-ed up to move as adhesions are wrapped around your scapula and other bones and ligaments..I would aks them to go ahead and do mother was awake! now they will knock u out to do it and then u will heal...
4381292 tn?1355701521 When i was in the hospital at 26 weeks with siatica, my ob gave me vicodin. I was also on vicodin while pregnant with my daughter after a car accident. I wouldnt take unless ob prescribes as there are many different doses. Im sure (same with even tylenol) it can be bad.
Avatar f tn It has been 2 weeks since I have been vicodin free and I FEEL GREAT!!! I have not posted on here in a while because I have been so busy with family and work. Summer time is so busy for me since I have 3 little kids that are so energized and always wanting to be on the go. I will try to log on once or twice a week to let everyone know how I am doing.
1726450 tn?1316282511 I break tablets in half all the time to swallow them, not riba because they're small. If it were an aspirin, would you be asking the same question? Relax.
653611 tn?1235776013 ive been taking vicodin for a surgury which took place two days ago its a minor surgury so im going back to work tomorrow, i was wondering if i took a vicodin tonight {its about nine pm] will i have a hangover tomorrow when i have to be up for work ay 730 am?
Avatar m tn If you only take 2 - 3 vicodin per day, you are in much better shape than some and your withdrawal should be somewhat easier. My suggestion is to break the vicodin that you have left in half. If you usually take one pill each time you take one, take only a half. When it comes time for your next dose - see if you can tough it out and skip it, then when it is time for the next one, just take a half - that will start the process.
Avatar f tn I was on vicodin for a year, taking two 5/325 a day. Never more. On tuesday i took half of a 500 and havent taken once since. I needed to detox and stay away from them. I have NO cravings whatsoever. It seems that my withdrawals havent been too bad. But i keep fearing it will creep up and get worse. It has been over 96 hours since i took that half pill. I have been able to eat, some chills still and diarrhea only once. Any insight on when the end is coming?
Avatar m tn i became pregnant 3 years ago and starting having siatica pain i was still filling my RX but not taking vicodin on a daily basis or half a norco a day. once my daughter was born i found myself with close to 1000 vicodin pills and this is where i started to go outta control. i was going through a break up with the father of my daughter and was using vicodin to ease the pain. i found out i have 2 herniated discs which cause severe pain and disable me.
Avatar m tn You can split the pill in half and only take it half strength. That's what I always do with Vicodin if I'm prescribed it -- doctors seem not to realize that some people don't need the super strength stuff but can get by with a lower dose.
Avatar f tn My Vicodin addiction started innocently enough since I had already had some of the 5/500mg prescribed in Aug 2008 for a slight back problem. I had taken them in the past with no problem but since have learned that once my body found something new to latch onto it didn't want to let go. I struggled with this secret all this time having told no one and reading on here about w/d because I didn't know the pain and struggle it was to stop once started.
Avatar n tn With one pill a day I assume that they are extended release pills and would definitely not mess with them!
Avatar f tn severe nostril pain from snorting vicodin, relieved only by more snorting..
Avatar n tn Sent home with vicodin, told to come back the next day. Pain just as bad , vicodin works for 30-40 mins then i start feeling it break threw again. After searching for similar symptoms online appears like other people with same problems have had misdiagnosed hernia , gluten allergy, or ulcers. Dr. did not ask about ulcers and was annoyed by online research. It should be noted that in the week prior to this i had a severe flu with a powerful cough , which i still have.
Avatar f tn then I continued to take the valium with the vicodin to help me sleep when I took too much vicodin sometimes 2-3 a day.I feel so depressed, I hate myself for starting to take them again. My life was finally getting more organized, and it was great to not be a slave to the drugs.
