How long is vicodin in your bloodstream

Common Questions and Answers about How long is vicodin in your bloodstream


Avatar n tn The physical addiction is definitely in your bloodstream and once you get over the withdrawal you'll have to fight the mental and emotional addiction that'll come up. But getting through your taper-down is first and foremost; so be sure to get LOTS of rest, eat healthy and treat yourself gently!!!
Avatar m tn But staph infections can turn deadly if the bacteria invade deeper into your body, entering your bloodstream, joints, bones, lungs or heart. Many staph infections no longer respond to common antibiotics. Your wife should see a infectious disease doctor. A pain management doctor or phys-assistant has no knowledge or experience of hepatitis C or liver disease. Blood tests do not tell the whole story about liver disease. She needs at least liver biopsy to know how advanced her liver disease is.
Avatar n tn I know this will sound like a joke..but how long for re-addiction? I would say about 30 minutes in your bloodstream of your first hit of what you detoxed from.
Avatar f tn Does anyone know how long it takes for Vicodin to get out of the bloodstream? Is that the same time period I can expect for w/d? I understand from these postings that most people feel the worst of the detox is 1-4 days. Is it 72 hours until it is out of the blood stream? Then there is the question of how long it takes for our biochemistry to go back to normal. I have tried everything..Suboxone, cold turkey, hypnotherapy, praying, pill groups by Kaiser, 12-steps, ect.
Avatar n tn From what you've posted above, it sounds like you're sincere in this -- We're all here to help and that is the bottom line. We have all been in your shoes for the most part, and this is what has helped so many people out up to this point. First of all, are these pills prescribed to you? If so, then it'd be within your best interest to talk to your PCP [doctor] and let him/her know that you feel as though you have an issue with the pills.
Avatar n tn Yes I'm a firm believer that addiction is a choice but it comes to a point when its in your brain and it becomes a mental thing. Being honest with your ob at this point is the beat thing you can do. We all make mistakes but its how we learn from them that matters the most. Stopping now might be hard but its what's best for your baby. And if he/she means that much to you then you will get help NOW instead of continuing and hiding it.
1279189 tn?1275248468 You won't have any withdrawals from your Vicodin. As Jaybay said you will need your Vicodin at the start while it is getting into your system. You will want to keep your Vicodin on hand for BT pain but you shouldn't need the number of pills that you were taking before once they get your dose correct on the Fentanyl. Usually the first dose of Fentanyl that they start you on isn't the one that you actually need. They will work you up slowly so that your system gets used to the strong medication.
Avatar n tn ( Dam stuff is how I got started so long ago, god I wish I could go back
Avatar m tn Your Quote : " Klonopin is a benzodiazapein much like valium or zanax etc and clonazapam is klonopin in its generic form and no way it is for blood pressure. It is an antianziety/seizure med aka tranquillizer ( old school term) My post is most likely were your seeing this and yes withraw from it is hell. :" End Quote" If this is what I think it is,,is it not very similar to xanax except not as strong?
Avatar n tn she told me never ever to be afraid to call them when i am in that much pain,she said that is what they get paid for...anyway..she phoned me in enough of the vicodin(10)untill i call the office tomorrow..she said my insicion should not be opening up-and she also said i should not be having the pain on either side of my stomache the way it is..
Avatar n tn Ulcers don't come back usually, unless the original reason that caused them is still happening in your body and they aren't incurable like Crohn's or Fibro is. I wish you well and will pray your surgery goes smoothly and you aren't in pain for very long, if at all, afterwards. I am Christian as you are, know you are in my prayers as you go thru this time in your life.
Avatar n tn nonaddictive antidepressants, are often used to prevent chronic headaches (though they don't treat headaches in progress). Whether your pain is caused by your detox or not, you shouldn't have to suffer such misery. Hallucinations can, believe it or not, be triggered by a wide range of seemingly harmless medicines (there's a link in the Med Help archives for "anticholinergic poisoning" you might want to check out). Even eye drops have been implicated! Get examined if you can.
Avatar n tn Then I have another doctor saying that the amount of opiates in the breastmilk is as high as in my bloodstream. I don't really believe this, since I know a couple of people who have been on serious meds, nursed anyway, and their babies are now fine, bright young children. But I still worry as to what the right descision is....sigh And here's a question (off topic) for your c-section birth, did they give you pitocin?
Avatar n tn That's whati was explaining the second time I did because when u take 4 or 8 or however much the BA which is the bioavailability is not 100% I'm not sure what the BA of suboxone is but just for example say its 30% that means only 30% of the dose you take actually gets in your bloodstream and works not the whole 4mg or however much you take does that make more sense so if u take 8mg you won't actually get the ceiling at 4mg unless the BA is 50% or more.
Avatar m tn I cant think of a more embarrassing way to spend your final days then having your children or worse a stranger at some hospital wiping your a$$ for you and not recognizing any of your family or friends because the ammonia level in your blood stream is simply not getting filtered out anymore. This is a little deal from wiki showing the different grades and how it progresses...
Avatar n tn Albumin is the most abundant protein in the bloodstream,it is synthesized in the liver and secreted into the blood stream. If the liver function is abnormal the blood albumin concentration will fall. This usually occurs in patients with cirrhosis who have moderate or advanced liver dysfunction.The albumin concentration in the blood can also be low in other conditions other then liver diseases, including serious malnutrition, kidney diseases and rare forms of intestinal dysfuntion.
Avatar n tn Only you can decide if the feeling more pills give you is worth the price. Withdrawl is hard, pain is terrible...but only you can decide which is your path. Your choice. Sorry that we haven't been able to be there as quickly as you may have needed...everyone here gives help and needs the help of others. I know when I first started posting I needed help quick and there wasn't always someone there immediately...everyone tries to help, but we all also try to be as patient as we can...
Avatar f tn However, you run a bigger risk of harming your relationship if you let your urge for meds overpower your love and trust in your spouse. If you let him dole out pills to you in a controlled manner and don't sneek around behind his back to get more, then you can quit before it gets worse. However if you display drug seeking behavior despite a team effort to reach your goal of quitting, then that's a sign that you need to seek professional help. IMO.
Avatar n tn They can no longer live in a fantasy world pretending everything is going to work out. Because it is not. Either your brother is going to lose it completely and pull a nutty on you or your parents or everyone in the house . Or he may end up being arrested and then incarcerated. Let me ask you this, what do you want to happen to your Brother? Does he hold down a job? Best of Luck you will need it!
Avatar n tn wow, your septum is gine, membranes are shot and you have a life threatening abcess in your sinuses that is putting your life in danger... could it be you are snorting drugs recreationaly? do you have any problems i should know about. I really need to be able to trust you in order to treat you.. patient#1: no doc, i just have a really dust house.. (joke, but do you see the insanity here?) patient #2 : yes doc.. i need help.. i know i have been hurting my body and my family by doing this.
Avatar f tn Hi ladies , does anyone know how long hcg stays in your body after a trigger shot?...I'm 12 post the injection and I've been feeling soooo sick so I took a Hpt and it was a quick positive...I don't want to get my hopes up if it's the hcg from the shot and not because I'm pregnant.
405614 tn?1329147714 This afternoon, at my appointment, I discovered the molar on the right side was cracked in a couple places (already lots of fillings), and it needs a crown. X-rays of the left side didn't make it clear which tooth was causing the large abscess, which was kind of between two teeth. She did this test where she ran an electrical current into my tooth, with my finger on the probe; when I removed my finger, it cut off the current. She tried a normal tooth, and I cut off the current.
Avatar f tn By the way. Percocet , and Vicodin are both a category C. "It is not known whether Percocet is harmful to an unborn baby, but it could cause breathing problems or addiction/withdrawal symptoms in a newborn. " Remember it's important to talk to your doctor if about the medications you're on. Good luck.
544292 tn?1268886268 Day 34; Tramadol Cold Turkey Withdrawal Dear Friends; Well it's official I now have Bronchitis. I have to rest and prevent it from going into pneumonia. So no work this week. Which means no income. Which means money going out, no money coming in. A couple nights ago I stood and PRAYED ... "Just show me and send me what I need." So apparently HP needs me to rest, and not work and whatever the effects of that; I am still clean! I am still NOT on Tramadol! I said it before.
Avatar f tn Does anyone know if butalbital (fioricet) builds up in your system? It seems if I take it over a couple days for a migraine that even when I do the rx dose it affects me more on the 2nd or 3rd day. Just wondering what others have found. Thanks!
Avatar f tn Lots of good people are here and they are on your side - dont hesitate to ask, vent, and just let your thoughts and feelings known. How long has it been since you could speak about this comfortably, without judgment, and to people that understand? I am on your side.
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi! Welcome to Part 11! There's a huge number of posts on Tramadol recovery here. Please come in and make yourself Comfy!
544292 tn?1268886268 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!
544292 tn?1268886268 I don't have much to offer you... pretty much everything you need is in these posts, in yourselves, and in your connections with other people. I never took tramadol, but opiates were one of several substances I was addicted to when my sky fell some years before tramadol was introduced. I believe absolutely that the primary characteristics of tramadol withdrawall are substantially the same as opiate withdrawall.
