Avatar f tn I have been addicted to hydrocodone for about 3 years, i could not take it anymore and quit cold turkey.. and have been hydro free for since jan 23. im slowly feeling better, but i just can not sleep!! its driving me crazy. im tired and i will just lay in bed all night hoping to GOD i can just doze off. but i may get two hours max every night and its wearing me down. i also take cymbolta for my severe anxiety and depression and kloapin 0.5 mg about every other day.
Avatar n tn Things were hectic and I think I may have accidentally taken a hydrocodone(5MG/500 MG tablet) in lieu of a my prenatal vitamin. It was a stupid mistake and I went to grab my vitamins in the dark after an exhausting evening. Does anyone know if 1 tablet will affect the fetus in any way? I was prescribed the Hydrocodone in the spring for an ovarian cyst and barely used any of the prescription so I am definitely not a regular user of the drug.
461407 tn?1206734605 Anyway, I started on 1 1/2 of regular Hydrocodone way back and I felt okay, no hang over from it. Did you ever take a pill and get really mad? I've noticed that. If I take that 1/4 ES after waiting hours I can become really, really mad. When I was first given this ES I took a full 1/2 and went bullistic on a clerk at the courthouse for not understanding me. I've never been able to take a whole pill either Reg or ES, I would go berserk. Very weird.
Avatar f tn btw, hydrocodone does not contain acetaminophen. Medications like Vicodin and Norco contain both hydrocodone and acetaminophen, but hydrocodone is itself a semi-synthetic opioid, similar to oxycodone.
Avatar n tn I just had surgery and took hydrocodone. I am on synthroid and cytomel for my thyroid. No problems noted. Hydrocodone on the other hand is a whole new set of problems if you start taking those every day. No thanks.....I would look at a different avenue. The narcotic pain meds are too addictive physically and psychologically.
Avatar f tn she has quit taking the hydrocodone 6-7 weeks ago but the hives are still coming (every single day) and in different places on her body. is this an allergic reaction to the hydrocodone? and can it take this long for the hives to go away?
783714 tn?1237997265 I am having the amniocentesis next friday and by then I will be 20 weeks.I have been taking hydrocodone for 2 years. I went from 2 10-325 norcos to 1 and a half.Is it my fault my baby may have ds? Will tapering off of hydro harm my baby?How safe is the amnio test?Thankyou for any help you can give me.
1636357 tn?1300254494 I've titled this as such, since I believe "SSRI Discontinuation Syndrome" is a much too sugar-coated term for what this entails... I stopped taking Prozac (cold turkey) about three months ago without consulting my doctor. Bad move, I know, but I longer have health insurance, hence the reason I stopped taking it. I was fine for a couple of weeks, as Prozac had a long half-life. The the brain zaps began...and still continue.
Avatar m tn I have had pain in my right shoulder going down my right arm and numbness in my thumb, its been happening about 2 weeks now and doesn't seem to be getting any better.
429432 tn?1343594190 I was prescribed robaxin 3 months ago. I have chronic pain and a failed back surgery. My DOC was hydrocodone. I liked the uppers, not downers. It's highly unlikely that I'll ever become addicted to this. I hate the way it brings me down and makes me sleepy. But when the burn kicks in, it does relieve. I just cant take when working or driving. I had gotten a bottle of 60, and I probably still have 50 in 3 months. Give it a shot if you know you won't like downers.
Avatar n tn Doc told me I had a pinched nerve or severe muscle strain. Got hydrocodone and it helped some. Went on a 5 day cruise thinking it would be relaxing. Got a very vigorous massage - very bad decision. Pain through the roof and two fingers on left hand went numb. Doc gave me enough demoral to make it to shore 4 days later. See doctor again tomorrow. Why is the pain so much worse at 4:00 a.m.? Driving my wife nuts because I can't get comfortable. How long before this clears up?
Avatar n tn Also, after having all this stuff draining into my stomach all night it feels upset the next morning. I broke my leg and was given Hydrocodone pills for a few months and guess what zero problems of any kind with nasal drip at night or stomach problems during the day. I am spending 40$ a month now on a mix of antihistamine and Sudafed which does'nt work nearly as well. I wish there was something I could take that would work like the Hydrocondone pills.
492921 tn?1321289896 I know how addictive hydrocodone is. I have taken it for years here and there I don't like it and most the time it just sits in my cabinet. I only take it when the pain gets severe. It's Sunday and my Dr never really gets back to you in a timely fashion on the weekends. I guess I'll just wait to talk to him in the morning after I see my chiropractor.
Avatar f tn I have severe Gastroparesis and am on GJ feeding tubes. I was in pain management, but got kicked out because hydrocodone wasn't showing up in my system. I did a DNA test and I don't metabolize opioids and with all the liquids that run through my body with feeds, I feel like it dilutes my urine. Is there anyone that can help me document or verify this. I'm distraught.
Avatar m tn I started taking gabapentin 300 mg 3 to 4 times daily and Cymbalta 120 mg in the morning along with hydrocodone 5/500 3 times a day and valium 5 mg so I can sleep. About 9 months ago and I actually lost 27 pounds. I have gained that weight back now but I still have the same problems. My Doctor still says I have Fibromyalgia.
Avatar m tn A little background information I broke my ankle on the 4th of July and after surgery I was prescribed Hydrocodone 750mg tablets for the pain I was feeling for the first month or so I was taking what the doctor prescribed which was taking one every 3 hours a total of 8 per day. Over time as the pain subsided I began taking less per day and at this time I usually take about 4 total per day sometimes less.
Avatar f tn For the first two months he wants me to take the hydrocodone as prescribed and 30 days of Cymbalta 30 mg and another 30 days at 60 mg after that he said he would be able to get me off of the hydrocodone completely but it was unsafe if I didn't do both at the same time. Does anybody have any clarification as to why it's dangerous to quit hydrocodone and go straight to Cymbalta without being on both of them for a .
Avatar f tn Hi, I'm just going crazy. I have been on zoloft 100mg for the last six or seven years, they have helped great for me. I take them for anxiety and slight depression. I have arthritis in both my hips and it's been getting severe, since July I have been taking 2 - 6 hydrocodone for the pain. It just depends on what I am doing. Last Monday I quit taking the hydrocodone because I was worried after talking to a friend that I should get off them because they are addicting.
Avatar f tn Im a 26 year old mother of two gorgeous children and a great supportive husband. I am a pill addict....mainly xanax, tramadol and hydrocodone. I started taking hydrocodone in 2005 and taking xanax in 2010. My dosage was half a milligram twice a day of xanax and 10 mgs of hydro every six to eight hours. The xanax is my huge problem....Im now up to six to ten mgs a day. no, im not lying. ive hasd blackouts, losing entire days at a time, conversations you name it.
Avatar m tn i was getting from the Hydrocodone, i Just needed it to feel normal....i have a good job and the person who was in charge of random drug testing for my company was a good friend and kept me off the list. one day while driving home i felt so helpless that i just cried out to god for some help. the next day my friend called me and told me that a third party company was going to start the random testing so i called my wife. she set an appointment with a dr. who prescribed me Suboxone.

Avatar f tn s, I have been taking cholesterol medication for about 2 months, I also take Hydrocodone 10/325 and Tramadol 50mg daily. I take 3 and 3. I was told that if my liver enzyme's were not down by my next visit on 3/23 I would no longer be able to take the Hydrocodone nor the cholesterol medication. My question is what alternatives to I have to replace the Hydrocodone10/325. Please reply with any advice or suggestions. Thank You.
Avatar f tn One thing I have not see anyone say about the differences in hydrocodone and oxycodone is that hydrocodone is schedule III while oxycodone is a scheduled II......
