Can i take vicodin with xanax

Common Questions and Answers about Can i take vicodin with xanax


Avatar f tn I usually don't take the vicodin until about 4 or 5 pm. I take 2 tablets at that time and then maybe later will take another. Then i take a 1mg Xanax to help me sleep at night. I would usually start the withdrawal symtoms around 2 or 3pm but force myself to wait until after work to take the vicodin. I quit the vicodin cold turkey 4 days ago.
Avatar f tn Oh, wow, i don't want to do this for a year. and i am really thinking it is the xanax w/d not the vicodin any more. i can live with it, but oh i don't want to for a year. yuck! they say the half life is very short and you can feel w/d's even before your next dose. i really think my w/d symptoms in the afternoon through out the evening are from the Xanax. They just get worse until i take my little more than 0.5 Xanax now(was on 1mg) before i go to bed.
Avatar n tn no the rest of your life wont always be like this, it will get better day by day, one day at a time (be careful with the xanax) i am on my 9th week and still having some difficulty, i am also taking xanax and 80 mg. of doc told me she wants me to switch anti-depressants, maybe you should check into whether prozac is working for you. there are other anti-depressants that work better for addictions symptoms and anxiety, i am hearing alot about cymbalta...its worth asking your doc.
Avatar n tn she is on a cocktail of anit-depressent drugs , and she recently went to the dentist and he gave her vicodin for pain , but she has been taking about 4 a day now and she she just got a refill of 30 more and now she is asking me if i can give my old vicodin that i have from a few months back from my dentist i never took the stuff, her parents do not know about her abuse and she does not want to tell them or her friends .
Avatar n tn Won't sleep well, will probably have restless leg syndrome. Google it. Personally, I can't taper. If I have them, I take them, even knowing what's coming. Maybe if you will hold them for him he'll have a chance? After having gone through this several times, someone turned me on to methadone. I take one 10 mg after the symptoms appear. One has actually been all I needed at times, but usually I'll take one for 3 or so days.
Avatar n tn I'd like to understand what you're saying. When I do, I usually learn something interesting. Take me along with you.
Avatar f tn the doc wants ,to take it along with my celexa. i am on the max dose of it. she wants me to get me calmed down so i can wean off the vicodin. i am very afraid of this drug. but i know docs are using it with antidepressants to help with depression. so maybe it will work. all i know is that i need to get off the vicodin bad. i take 3 ,10mgs of it a day . it used to make me happy but now it is causing me to to have panic atttacks and terrible ddepression.
Avatar n tn After withdrawals from codiene, I dread anymore withdrawals. My therapist seems to think that I can stay on Xanax for ever, but I don't like taking pills anymore. I want off of everything. What should I expect when cutting down?
Avatar n tn Hello, I am new at this so bare with me. I was prescribed Xanax when I was 20 years old, for severe panic attacks, I am 42 now. The Doctors kept raising the dosage over the years because it would just stop helping, they said the correct dose just wasn`t regulated for me yet, that was 22 year ago, by the time I was 27 they had me on 2 mg four times a day, total of 8 mg of Xanax a day !!
Avatar n tn The results are just in from my MRI. I have five degenerated discs along with two bulging discs. I take the Vicodin about every four hours now. The good thing about the Clonazepam is I don't wake up in four hours to take a Vicodin. When I do wake up though I'm usually hurting pretty bad. So, the bad part is I've been double dosing of Vicodin when I wake up. I know I'm not doing the meds the way I should but, at this time I'm too weak to try and stop.
149087 tn?1258457420 The thing is though there is no way I can take it 3 times a day. Hell I take one .5 mg pill and it knocks me out for hours, then when I do wake up I am really groggy and fog headed. I guess I was just wondering what you felt and how did you function on such high doses of xanax?
397118 tn?1219765850 Hi everyone, well I found out that my son is doing xanax but I started investigating how you can get high on xanax and I didn't know so I found out that he is snorting it I just don't know how you can abuse xanax can some one help me with this one please?
Avatar f tn The withdrawals suck on the vicodin. But I hope I can beat this. I want to know if there is anyway that there was something natural I could take to help with sleeping,twitching,anxiety,crying and all that jazz. Please help I'm scared.

Avatar n tn I am a chronic pain patient who doesnt abuse drugs, I use either Darvocette or Vicodin low dosage, plus I take Xanax for anxiety .In a proper dosage will this be okay together I dont take Darvocette but one day then next day Vicodin 5 by 500.
1473994 tn?1287019508 I have quit before and have been thru the withdrawls. I know I can do it again I just need some support. None of my family and friends understand what its like. I just need some positive words and maybe some advice from someone who has been where I've been, as far as how many vicodin and other things I'm taking. I know I'm numb and its not true happiness. I know I'm probably on the verge of losing my life.
Avatar m tn I'm posting this to talk to people going through the same thing that I am, and share my experience's with them. If there is anything I can do to help anyone with any information or if anyone can share information that can help me, it'd be awesome. Withdrawals are the worst thing in the world, and I wouldn't even wish them on my greatest enemies. Our health is our lives, literally! So we (the drug users) should really take that into account.
Avatar n tn I think it depends on alot of things I think the problem might be with the xanax though I dont have much experience with them but I have heard that people can become hooked on them pretty fast I think the vicoden probably needs more time to give you withdrawal but you didnt say how much of the Vicoden u were taking a day?
Avatar n tn I have been taking vicodin for the last month of my pregnancy. I am currently 20 weeks pregnant. Before this, I was clean and sober for the first 4 months of my pregnancy. My friend offered me some vicodin and now it has turned into a daily thing. I don't know if the baby will be ok, since they say it is a class c drug and no links to birth defects have been found. I asked my doctor and they said they sometimes perscribe vicodin to pregnant women. Could anyone help me answer this question?
Avatar n tn If I was you, I would tapper off. I didnt take pills, but I smoked, and the Dr. said it was best I tapper off those, than to just stop. Stopping cold turkey would stress my body and cause stress to the baby. I am on pain pills now, I am 17 weeks pregnant, and will be on them till I have the baby, Our plan is to tapper off in the last month or so, so the baby isnt addicted. I am on pain manigment due to hernia that is tearing.
Avatar n tn i am haveing a lot of withdrawl from the vicodin . I am not sure what to do. I do not what to take the pills any more but when i am on them I fill good I can do anything. The pills have taking over my life.
Avatar n tn I have a few questions that I hope someone can help me with... Here is my store... My husband and I have been taking vicodin for about 3 years. Anywhere from 2 -5 pills (10mg/325) almost night after work (Very rarely did we do more than 5 pills). I have quit on several times for a few weeks sometimes months. The last time I quit I went to my Dr. told him about my dependence and he prescribed Xanax. I followed the amino acid protocol that has been posted on this board and acupuncture.
Avatar f tn I would like to say as of monday going from 10-12 lortab 10/325 i will no longer be taking them.... but i do have have verrryyy high anxiety as it is... so i also get prescribed 2mg xanax that i quarter to help me sleep and stop my panic attacks being as I have three children to care for.... my question is should i up my dose of xanax to get over the the w/d of the lortabs or just take the xanax at night... also im worried about my energy level...
Avatar n tn well if you can take a clonipin or a xanax, if you can get any they seem to help me with that, if not try tylenol pm it might work, i think you get those b/c lack of potassium maybe try to eat more bananas during the day also, but it might still happen, i think it is one of the suckiest w/d symptoms that you sometimes just gotta deal with
Avatar n tn have been reading about the problems with the vics. i feel for you all. i too take vics,5/500s bout 2 meds a day. what i want to know is i take valium bout 10mgs a day. is this a dangerous combination? can it lead to a double addiction or could the combo be fatal? please rsvp asap so i can wein of one or the other! i hope you all get help with your addictions. GODS BLESSINGS on you for trying!
Avatar n tn I've tapered down to 3 10/500 a day and I'm going to cold turkey day after xmas becuase I'm off work until the 2nd of Jan. What can I expect? I've been on these damn pills for 5 years, went thru Withdrawlals once and hated it. I thought I was dying. So i'm really fearful of this upcoming detox. I've had enough of these monkeys on my back, it's effecting my work, my relationships with family and friends and I'm tired of being TIRED all the time.
Avatar n tn My concern is will I go through any serious withdrawl if I stop taking them? Is there anything I can take that will lessen the withdrawl? When I don't take the pills I am on the verge of an anxiety attack. I have to take a xanax to stop my hands from shaking. I guess the bottom line is I'm scared.
Avatar n tn I now take a couple of Xanax to put me to sleep. I simply can NOT sleep without assistance. I can lay in bed sleepless for HOURS and that is impacting my ability to do my job, etc. This month, now almost eight months after her death, I hit a new high (low) of Vicodin abuse. I exhausted my month supply (180 tabs) in 11 days. With that, I had no choice but to endure the same crappy symptoms that many of you describe. The larger, more negative impact has been overwhelming depression.
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.
