Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone and oxycodone at the same time


Avatar f tn And I only took them when I was supposed to then I would take one and a half then two until I was taken 6-7 at a time!!! Today I am 5 1/2 days clean and let me tell you Life is good and I really like myself. I'm funny and happy and have more energy. Best of luck to you!
Avatar n tn yes, Oxycodone is an opioid derived from thebaine, found in the poppy, it is roughly 50% stronger than hydrocodone(vicodin) and in the form of Oxycontin( pure oxycodone in 20, 40, + 80 mgs pills), if crushed into a fine powder and taken orally, snorted, intravaneously, or skin popped, it releases a high dose of straight oxycodone to the brain causing a high very similar to heroin, hence the common slang name "hillbilly heroin" for OC.
Avatar n tn Sometimes I get a minor discomfort in the area of my liver, but no other symptoms. I do know the liver regenerates all the time and will start as soon as the substance is removed. I am trying to coordinate doing an outpatient detox within the nest few weeks but have obstacles in my way. I have a 2 year old I need to find care for from like 10a to 8 pm for 2 days. My hubby does not know but will tell him ONLY if I have too. I cannot tell my parents or MIL. Thanks for letting me vent.
Avatar n tn is one less addictive than the other? Thanks a ton for all the support....I have decided to taper and at 20 mg a week should be done in 3 weeks.....wish me luck!!
2126606 tn?1346348724 This puts patients at risk for developing serious, and even fatal, health issues. Last year at the WAISMANN METHOD®and Domus Retreat, we treated about the same number of patients for addictions to Norco as we did for Heroin, OxyContin or methadone. Although not completely surprised, I was appalled to find out that many of these patients developed a dependency to the drug after they were given a prescription for a very small injury.
Avatar f tn I can tell you that my doctor put me on a weaning program and I began to feel like I could see the light at the end of the tunnel much better and much faster. I started at 60 tabs a week, which is 8 a day of vicodin 5/500 mg. The doctors goal was to reduce it by 7 tabs a week until I have no more. She is a specialist in addiction (thats what she says anyways) but I have t tell you that it has been 5 weeks and I am way ahead of her program. I am at 2 vicodins a day now.
Avatar m tn After have abused these for 3 years (by taking 3-6 the first year 4-8 the 2nd year and 10-15 the 3rd year) and taking so many at the end if i did something longterm to my brain like cause myself depression for the future?
Avatar m tn so i went back to lortabs first it was 10's then they went to 5's then the doctor went to 10 again and It has helped a lot and if you take lortabs as prescribed and I rarely do that to be honest with you but I am trying my best to get out of the house more often and spend time with kids, pets, shopping if i have the money. My question is what were are the worst of the worst withdrawals from pain meds? In my opinion it is methadone but I could be wrong...
401095 tn?1351395370 yes, i was given oxycodone after my hysterectomy a year ago....only took it for about 10 days, maybe not even that long....didn't need it for long....i've taken hydrocodone for much longer though to handle different type of chronic pain....didn't notice one bit of difference between the oxys and the hydros (both were same strength, 10/500)....don't get "high" or energy from either one of them though, never have, both oxys AND hydros just make me somewhat drowsy and relaxed...
Avatar f tn Honestly, what got me through a lot of my WD was posting here all of the time. It felt like that's all I did at night and during the day when I was home "sick with the flu" with work and all. I stayed up until 5am at times just posting away. I shared my story with so many others, and read through everyone's stories alike. I constantly just told myself that I wasn't going through any WDs or anything, it was just the flu that was happening to me at that time.
Avatar f tn I have been taken both hydrocodone and oxycodone for seven years the latter for 6 3/4 yrs the hydrocodone was just prescribed tome with slow release morphine pills.
Avatar f tn his doctor gave him a prescription for 4 a day for a month supply with 3 refills but then he'd go back to the same doctor about the same time that month was over and get another prescription with 3 more refills. he did this until he had prescriptions at 4 different pharmacies. this enabled him to take more each day than what he was supposed to. after about a year, losing our home, a car and almost our marriage, he decided to get help.
Avatar n tn That will help some of the more knowledgable people on the forum give you some good advise. Your at the right place.
1109982 tn?1260732608 You and I are at about the same mark. This is my ten millionith time at the rodeo.. Hoping it sticks this time. No matter how many times we fail, we can never give up trying. As long as there is the HOPE of staying clean, I am going to fight to achieve it. Thats my thoughts. How are you feeling anyway.. You know misery loves company and all that stuff. Im pretty yuck but staying at work. For me its better to stay busy.
759106 tn?1322704406 but I have yet to experience any wd issue's! 11/30/2011 The yawning and no energy is the worst, and NO this isn't my 1st,2nd, or 3rd time detoxing off pain medicine's! But it is my 1st time on Hydrocodone hence my 1st post asking if the wd would be the same as Oxycodone ! I will continue to check-in and share any change's good or bad. Good luck to everyone whether its your 1st day 1st time or not each time I had a surgery I was put back on this track with pain pills.
441382 tn?1452814169 Or do you think it was the drastic decrease in the amount of opiate? At any rate, I got my regular meds this afternoon and for the first time in two days I'm feeling like myself and don't have nerve pain screaming down my legs and the feeling that the soles of my feet contain shards of broken glass (two of the major symptoms of the arachnoiditis). But I'm now living in fear of having to EVER go through this again! I think I'd sooner die that face this again. Any advice? Thanks in advance.
Avatar f tn Cut off all suppliers and people you can get pills from, destroy the ones you have and tell your doctor and pharmacist that you are an addict and that you are quitting. I wish I could tell you otherwise but none of us succeed unless we go for it 100%. Since you have done this 3 times I would advise that you start on aftercare now....whether it is NA or AA meetings, an addiction counselor, a pastor...whatever it takes...
Avatar m tn Hey man i,m on day five of the same $hit.This is the forth time for me and by far the easiest....well i wont say anything to the effect of easy,But WAY more bearable. But im doing things this time i havnt done in the past.First let me say I went to the ER.If you have no money or insurance they still HAVE to see you,they DONT have to help you for stuff like this. In fact the DR I saw was a complete ***.But after telling him i was addicted and wanted and needed help he came around.
Avatar m tn It's recommended that the person taper off them rather than just quit cold. I'm not sure what you mean by hydrocodone/oxycodone; he is taking both at the same time? Or is he taking those as a one or the other, depending on what he can get kind of deal? Either way, he should just taper down until he gets to a lower amount, then quit.
Avatar f tn did you get rid of all your druggie friends? i found that was hard yet easy at the same time. part of staying clean is to surround yourself with support and clean friends. i used drugs 8 years and the hardest part was changing friends. after i did that and run into one of much druggie friends that was high at the time i was so thankful to have gotten free of the drugs. how about you? i know how hard it is to stop. believe you me. im so proud of you.
Avatar f tn I once, many months ago, did not refill my medications on time (the pharmacy was out of hydrocodone until the following Monday and I was busy and figured I could live without the oxycodone too until that Monday), not realizing what withdrawl I was in store for. Ha! I only went one day and found myself at the pharmacy. Scared me and every since I watch my medication carefully and get refills on time. Lately, I feel anxious more and more, thinking I need more meds.
Avatar f tn I had seen several people say the same kind of thing on here and wondered also if that is the kind of person that the pills hit.
Avatar m tn Unfortunately she just finished her last prescription and I just picked up the new one yesterday. This time it's all the same manufacturer. I guess we will wait and see. I'll keep you posted! I just honestly cannot believe or comprehend this! Thank you for taking the time to write. I appreciate it.
Avatar f tn The thing you have to take into consideration right now is the fact that you're able to realize within yourself that you have a problem and yet, at the same time, you're having legitament pain due to an accident that just recently [and unfortunately] just happened. Taking the pills the way you're describing here sounds like the addiction talking. I was/am the same way when it comes to taking the pain pills, how, when and where. That sort of thing.
Avatar f tn I remember that I'm the patient, and I'm the one experiencing the pain (it's my body!). But, at the same time, I remember the doctor has seen a bazillion patients like me and will usually know what is best, so I always give my doctor's advice a chance to see if it works.
5769649 tn?1373934953 in a urine test will tylenol 4 and oxycodone show up as in the same family?reason i'm asking is in may i was told that i had tabs in my urine and i have not taken anything but my oxycodone and tylenol 4 !so i'm wondering if the tylenol 4 showed up like lortabs ?i honestly haven't taken any and i'm worried i might get kicked out of my pm clinic and i couldn't live without my pain meds!!!i have had 4 back surgeries and about 20surgeries on my stomach !!i have chronic pain in my back and tummy!!
Avatar n tn doubtful, vicoden and percoset both have APAP, and both are made from the same part of the opium...thebaine.....but it is a possibility, technically...
Avatar m tn Hi Cathy, You are so right. Why is there are war on GOOD physicians that follow the "rules" along with we CCP (Chronic Pain Patients). Your physician should have been able to provide you with a RX for the next month. She's just frightened and being overly cautious. As you know she can't give a refill but again she could have written a new RX, post dated it as she has done in the past. Maybe she's unsure of the regulations and feels better safe than sorry.
Avatar m tn This won't last forever, eventually our brains will heal and start producing the right chemicals again. However the longer you take them, the longer this process is going to take. So, the sooner the better. As long as how to keep motivated while sober.. off hand I would stay the best way to raise the endorphins in our brain naturally would be excercise. Walk or run 3 miles a day (as hard as this sounds!) and you will start feeling alot better.
