Hydrocodone and clonazepam

Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone and clonazepam


Avatar m tn Instead of getting better with my anxiety, I found myself taking more and more of clonazepam. My head seem to hurt more and more. I also found myself crying more and more. It seems to me my medication is actually making my anxiety worse and causing my awful headaches. Does anyone have any experience with this? I have been in since bad shape for months. Don't bother to tell me to talk to my doctor. I have been to him month after month.
Avatar m tn As a teenager I was diagnosed with clinical depression and up until one year ago I was on and off various anti-depressants. Things fell apart when I was feeling depressed, and the my medication level was raised. I was on cymbalta 60mg a day, and was moved to cymbalta 90mg a day. I believe that caused a huge increase in suicidal thoughts, and I began to abuse oxycontin, whenever I could afford it. It was the only the thing at the time that allowed me to escape the thoughts of suicide.
Avatar n tn I take Hydroco/APAP 10-325 (4) times a day and Clonazepam 0.5 MG daily and feel great. Is there any danger in taking both these medications?
1254306 tn?1270992213 We weened her off Buspar first and now we are at the final stages of clonazepam. Her doctor wanted to up her clonazepam and put her on anti physcotic meds. She and we said NO. I felt like that was only going to make things worse, call it mothers intutition. Her theraphist agreed with us to take her off the meds since she wasn't having any problems like that before the meds. :) any ideas or thoughts, greatly appreciated!!!!
Avatar f tn Oh noooooo! clonazepam is a benzo and you might get hooked to that one too....and you sure don't want that, you cannot stop it CT, you have to taper off very slowly..... We are all so impatient to recover and to feel "normal" so fast after, sometimes, years of abuse. Give time to your body and brain to adjust and it will come back by itself in a natural way.
Avatar m tn I did know the toxicity of Hydrocdoone to the liver, and did not want to have alcohol with it, and I did not. I may have many other issues with Clonazepam and alcohol that I need to face. I just am glad I am not addicted to a third drug, Hydrocodone. Thanks.
717440 tn?1292743742 Hello everyone... Hubby is starting Day 5 today and I was wondering if anyone knew, on average, when we'll be out of the woods yet? I'm just a little worried because he has been taking clonazepam and if/when he runs out of those his WDs come back... so I guess I want to know when is it "safe" for him to stop the clonazepam? When will the WDs go away from the percocets? Anyone have an idea? I know there's no one answer or solution to this, I just need to know a rough idea.
Avatar m tn I was on hydrocodone for 3 and a half years and then was on about 4 different drugs for a few months. Then back on hydrocodone and had a surgery. My biggest question is why do I still feel so bad. I wake up every morning and feel awful. I have anxiety and no energy too. I never had anxiety until I went thru the awful withdrawals from the pain medicines I was on for a few months. I was on hydrocodone before and did not feel this way. Will it ever end? I don't know what will help.
Avatar n tn so where u on 4mg a day of ativan and now u swtiched to clonazepam? if so i think the taper/addition of klonopin/lclonazepam has to be done miticulously. ask RCA/Ryan about this. he as schedules for things like this and for tapering successfully. i know valium is used alot to get people off of clonazepam along with a taper schedule. i'm pretty sure the klonopin isn't causing the shakiness and sweating. it's either withdrawls from the ativan or your underlying anxiety returning.
Avatar f tn I take Effexor with Clonazepam. I take 1 mg of clonazepam in the morning together with Effexor and my anxiety is stable all day long. I even went through a separation which would not be possible if i stayed on my previous meds such as celexa and paxil. You can take Clonazepam before zoloft why not? But if zoloft doesn't work ask your doctor about effexor. Just be carefull because effexor shouldn't be mixed with other antidepressants. Do it only under your doctors supervision.
Avatar m tn s - you may lessen them but they will show up ---- I would have been so much better off if I had just tapered on the Oxycodone and Hydrocodone and quit that way --- Sub was a huge mistake for me. All the best.
Avatar m tn I have been on hydrocodone on and off for the past year. I went to the dentist and had some dental work done and was given a script for about 24 pills. Went back to the dentist to have a root canal and same thing. I took them because I liked the way they made me feel. From then on I found different ways to get them. Soon I found myself up to about 10-12 pills a day. This will be my 4th time detoxing and will be the last. I just can't go through it again.
1185895 tn?1266608090 Clonazepam and Cymbalta are safe together and are often prescribed together. But if you're getting weird symptoms from the clonazepam, you should contact your doctor about this and ask him how to taper off. You need to take something for the panic attacks, so going back to your doctor is advisable to determine if maybe the Cymbalta alone is the way to go.
Avatar f tn My new doctor took me off Clonazepam and put me on 1 mg Ativan 3 times a day. I think the change was too drastic. I am having withdrawals and am very scared.
Avatar f tn I would talk with the doctor prescribing the Clonazepam before adding anything like this. If you're wanting to add more I assume it's because the Clonazepam isn't working, and if this is the case, you need to let your doctor know this. Don't mix anything like this, you have no way of knowing what will happen.
Avatar m tn Hi Ryan, I have been taking 2mg of clonazepam 2x daily for about a year and I was taking 2mg of xanax for traveling on air plains not daily. That has stopped I am now taking around 8mg of xanax a day and 6 mg of clonazepam a day. Plus I take 100mg of zoloft daily. I have been doing this for about the last six months. I would actually like to stay on the clonazepam at my original dosage but I want to get of the xanax and someday the zoloft as well.
Avatar f tn This time the drug is a compounded medication. Hydrocodone - 30mg, and DM with a filler of Metamucil. My doctor increased the dose over time. I cannot take that much Tylenol. After a year on this compounded med, I begin to increase the daily amt on my own, which is frightening. The original dose was one cap 4 times a day. I have taken as many as 10 in one day, and still functioned. My questions. Do you always build a tolerance to the drugs?
Avatar f tn I stick to the natural remedies for colds and flu to avoid the high alcohol content and sedative properties of cold and flu remedies in the drug store, and some decongestants have stimulants in them that can cause anxiety.

Avatar m tn I feel like my body is weak but when I go to the gym my performance is the same. I take norco for back pain( 10-15mg per day) and .5 of clonazepam at night to sleep. does anyone else feel these things and could my long time use of norco be causing my muscle twitching or can this happen after a dystonic reaction. I'm scared and confused. I have had a mri, blood work and tons of doctors visits, all normal and the docs say I'm healthy. Any help would be awesome.
Avatar n tn The anxiety and depression is normal. Try and get out and exercise. That really helps. Are you taking any type of vitamins? Check out the health pages on the right side of the page.
Avatar f tn My new practitioner nurse informed me she can no longer prescribe Hydrocodone to me as long as I am on Clonazepam due to the fact it has a interaction. She put me on Baclofen 20MG. I am having side affects. It seems now all my body hurts, my brain doesn't feel right. Legs hurt worst. Any suggestions or procedures that may help to take the pain away? Thank you.
Avatar n tn been taking them for 3 years and really want to stop....
Avatar f tn I know I wish I had never gone on this med. I suffered with anxiety and panic for decades and never let anyone know. My panic was I would just become quiet....only once or twice did I think I was going to die from it. Had to pull off the road and self talk myself into "normal" (whatever that is!). I am up for a few surgeries in the next couple of months. I just want off of this drug. The less I take the better it will be. Thank you, again, for replying.
Avatar f tn Hi I use when needed clonazepam for irritability, I have Bipolar Disorder and I am on Lithium and Seroquel also, and Prozac when depressed, clonazepam when either low or high as an extra weapon to curb my snappy head. problem i find if used too regularly when depressed is it can make me worse.
Avatar f tn I have been on clonazepam and remeron since November 2009, was diagnosed with GAD and depression. First, my doses were 3 mg of clonazepam and 15 mg of remeron.Then, in 2 months I started to feel better and went to 2 mg of clonazepam. No problem then. Then I started to feel better again. My doctor recommended skipping the afternoon doze which was 0.5 mg. Now when I found this forum, I realized that I did not stand any chance to continue to improve.
Avatar m tn So now i am still here at the age of 60, on ssi for disability in the worst time in modern history for anxiety and pain patients. My family doctor has been prescribing my low dose of hydrocodone and clonazepam. about 8 months ago she finally caught on to what risk she was at, stopped the opioids. she admitted" they got both our ***** in a vice" the vicodin was pretty easy to get off compared to the clonazepam. last time i saw her she told me the clonazepam rx was a favor.
