Common Questions and Answers about Can i take ativan with vicodin


Avatar f tn I really do not have question, I have read all of your posts, done my research and actually went through withdrawl myself, over a year ago.. was clean for 3- 4 months.. and yes... here I am addicted- maybe even a little worse as before. I guess what I am looking for is someone to be by myside this time, when I think I just can't do it anymore, I pick up my laptop, and you or him or she is there... to answer.

Avatar f tn I am taking the Vicodin for anxiety and my doctor DID prescribe it for that because I told him that when I took it when I had my wisdom teeth out, I found it helped with my social anxiety. I did try SSRIs but they made me feel really weird, spaced out and I couldn't focus at work. I agree with your advise to seek psychiatric help. I know I have coping problems. Thanks so much again for talking to me.
Avatar n tn Why not take 6 pills at a time 5 times a day? Why can't I do whatever I feel I need to so I can feel good, have energy & be happy?" The answers came to me very suddenly about 6 & 1/2 months ago. I was a SLAVE!!! Those pills ran my entire life. Possessed my very soul. Filled my thoughts with self inflicted lies. Almost ruined a VERY lucrative career that I loved dearly. Also...they almost cost me my relationship with the most beautiful woman I'd ever known to whom I'm now engaged.
Avatar f tn o yea and i tie it to everything like most do with cigs. if i want to clean i take them, if i wan't to write a letter i take them. when i'm going out to do something fun i want to be more social and take them. when i'm bored i take them and get all kinds of creative ideas. and shopping is the worst. i will buy everything and then when my buzz goes down i get mad at myself for buying banana hammoks and ****.
Avatar m tn Fact is, I'm really not even sure if/which one I'm craving, But I know that in the afternooons I have to take something to get rid of the jitterbugs. I have an appointment with another doctor (addictionoligist) in a few days but if anyone could offer some advice here I would surely appreciate it. Thanks!!

Avatar f tn I relapsed on the vicodin and am now wondering if I should just continue to take the Ativan and slowly taper off of it? I don't know what to do. I don't want to get hooked on the Ativan and end up with a worse problem, but I haven't eaten or slept in days. I don't know what to do. Please someone help me.
Avatar n tn I ran out of my ES due to taking more then what i should and now its kicking me in the butt. I made day 3 i was hoping by now i wouldnt be having the cravings as bad, I can take all the ativan but then ill run out of those and then ill be in the same situation as i am in now. And i dont thik i can go though WD's again ill probably end up in the hospital for shure and i cant do that. So im taking one thing at a time.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn You can take up to 4,000 mgs. Take the L-Tyrosine with B6 to help absorption. Wait about one hour before eating breakfast. The L-Tyrosine will give you a surge of physical and mental energy that will help counteract the malaise. You may continue to take it each morning for as long as it helps. If you find it gives you the "coffee jitters," consider lowering the dosage or discontinuing it altogether. Occasionally, L-Tyrosine can cause the runs.
Avatar n tn She needs all the support she can get right now. I am to with everyone in saying i would definetly get a doctor involved. Especially with her age. Best of luck to you and your family. I will say a prayer for you all.
251667 tn?1189759431 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.
272729 tn?1194280557 I am on day 21 c/t from Vicodin. I have been taking Ativan for the persistent anxiety/restlessness/insomnia. For the past 10 days or so, I have only taken 1 - 1/2 of a 5mg tab. in the evening so that I can relax, and then sleep. It's worked out real well, but I don't want to do this indefinitely. So I decided to stop today and instead took .1 mg clonidine in the evening. I have had the clonidine for a week, but have never taken it because the Ativan works like a charm.
Avatar n tn Try 2000 mgs, and scale up or down, depending on how you feel. You can take up to 4,000 mgs. Take the L-Tyrosine with B6 to help absorption. Wait about one hour before eating breakfast. The L-Tyrosine will give you a surge of physical and mental energy that will help counteract the malaise. You may continue to take it each morning for as long as it helps. If you find it gives you the "coffee jitters," consider lowering the dosage or discontinuing it altogether.
Avatar n tn My heart goes out to you and I hope you can find some relief. Take care and keep posting. I will keep you in my prayers.
Avatar m tn I have ben taking vicodin for a year and half 4to 6 a day.I also take klonopin for anxeity and five years alcohol free.. Question what is the best way to quit vicodin with the help of my doctor?
Avatar m tn I take trazadone and have since I had brain surgery 5 years ago. One of the only side effects I have had from the surgery was that I am unable to sleep without taking some sort of sleeping pill. Trazadone is great. It helps to calm you down and turn your mind off. Trazadone at high levels is an anti depressant, but at the levels given for sleep is only that. Its not like Valium or ativan, although the side effect of helping sleep is the same.
Avatar n tn After being on them for almost every day for a month, I really think I should try and stop. Just because I know what it can lead to. I know I can end up just buying them from people and eating up to 15 or so a day, who knows. But the point is, I don't want to be dependent on this, or anything. So I tried to just stop a couple of days ago, and just got immediately moody, angry and burning blood like....similar to trying to quit smoking I guess. But I hate being mean, moody or anything like that.
Avatar n tn I use the vicodin mostly for energy at the end of the day so I can clean and take care of my kids when I am beat from work. Does anyone have any suggestions or positive feedback for me? I so need to stop beating myself up about this because it makes me feels worse... help!
Avatar n tn I am addicted Vicodin ES, been 4 days without the drug. How long can I expect withdrawels to continue.
Avatar n tn My cat died a few weeks ago and I used it as a good reason to dope up on ativan. Years ago I drank heavily. Funny thing I was able to stop that with no help or so I thought at the time. Now I realize I stopped the booze and started the vicadin-one addiction for another. I'm amazed at how many people there are out there with my same problem. This forum is a God send, at least I know I'm not alone. Now if I can just get the courage to get help and find the inner peace that Brian has found.
Avatar n tn I do have Klonopin to help with anxiety. should I get professional help or can I try this on my own?
689267 tn?1235245349 I never hear anyone talk about it on here, so I have no idea what I am up against. I take 3-4 mgs. a day. Mainly early evening and then to help with sleep. Or, should I stay on it since it is working? Thanks for any advice!
Avatar n tn Dear Sue, My name is Chantelle & I was so touched by what you wrote. I am 26 years old & I was addicted to Vicodin, Lorcet,& Fiorinal with Codiene. I would take anything that was Codiene based. I also have been doing this for 5 years. My son was born in 93 & I began to have headaches. I started with Vicodin & everything progressed. I was taking 10 to 12 a day just to get through the day.
301132 tn?1201652050 which means the baby may need some help with breathing and may not feed right away. I hope this help I take it for extreme anxiety, but I've noticed since becoming pregnant my anxiety is almost gone. Hopefully this helps and good luck.
Avatar n tn But now I am really concerned about my health. Come on, I can take it. It may not be what I want to hear, but what I need to. Yes, I feel like **** when they wear off, tired and miserable, which is why I just keep eating them. Thanks for helping.
Avatar m tn - The woman seemed stern about it being on the 29th. Can I not get em filled 1-2 days early? What's the big deal? Today would be one day early, correct? Because of the two days taht didn't get counted. If that's wrong, still it's just 3 days early. Why are they being so difficult. Really, I just took 3 extra and I'm out because of the two day thing but now they are gonna make me be w/ out for three because of their own flaw. What's do you all think?
Avatar n tn I called him the next day, and he prescribed me Ambien. If I take that with two Ativan I fall asleep, but only for four hours, and I wake up very very tired but of course my anxiety/non-stop thinking prevents me from falling back asleep. I just met with him today and told him this, and he prescribed me Valium to take with my Ambien....damn... I'm just scared, becaused of all the connotations that come with taking Valium... I'm taking it tonight for the first time.
Avatar n tn I went off cold turkey and I thought I was going to die. I had a seizure that I didn't even know I had. I came to with my family looking at me, my mother in hysterics and I had no idea why. She said we were talking and all of a sudden i started twitching and jerking, my eyes rolled back and my body got real stiff and I almost slid out of the chair. My nephews held me down till I came out it...I came out just as fast as I started it and never knew it even happened till my mother told me.
