Hydrocodone insomnia

Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone insomnia


Avatar m tn s actually from the hydrocodone. Obviously i have an addictive personality and decided to nip the hydrocodone and alcohol in the bud, but granted today at work (washing dishes) I felt like a pile of ****. Please help. Also do you have any reccomendations if you've gone through nicotine withdrawals before? Should I take some tylenol or something for my back? Is there anything that can help me sleep?
Avatar m tn This is the 39th day off opiates, hydrocodone. I am having trouble falling asleep and staying asleep at night. Would like to know if anyone else has had this problem?
Avatar f tn Fever, pain, chills, fatigue, insomnia. I am trying b6 , coconut water, Motrin, Xanax. Starting day three nothing is helping. Any suggestions. I can't stay down in bed a week.
Avatar m tn Why would he do this to someone who is doing something good for themselves?I have no craving at all for the hydrocodone at all,just getting my butt kicked here!!!
Avatar f tn I have been on Hydrocodone 10mg and Tramadol for 3 years for chronic back pain. The back pain is better but I have tried to quit taking pain meds several times and went into realy bad withdrawel symptoms. One time my blood pressure spiked up to 207 and I had a TIA event (mini stroke). I am trying it again and have been off meds this is 2nd week and I felt worse yesterday and today than ever. Shouldn't this be getting better by now?
Avatar n tn I have had difficulty sleeping for years. I was prescribed hydrocodone-apap 7.5-750 tamck for pain recently from my dentist. I don't have any side effects, am not dopey - but the medicine has allowed me to rest in and out of sleep for 4-5 hours. Is it addictive and could I typically order it through say a canadian respected mail pharmacy without a prescription?
Avatar n tn What are the withdrawal symptoms from Hydrocodone and how long will they last? I've been taking 1 or 2 10-325s a day for about a year for knee pain and quit a few days ago. I'm suffering from nausea that lasts from the time I wake up in the morning until about 12:00 noon. And I still don't feel well even then. I would really appreciate this information, as I'm starting to think there is something seriously wrong with me. Thank you!
Avatar f tn I have been on hydrocodone/apap 10/325 for about three months for surgery on my hand{carpal tunnel and Dupre's} then I was taking it for knee pain which helped. I was given Meloxicam 15 mg once a day, this has made all the difference in being able to walk again. I went off the pain meds have not een able to sleep or get to sleep since I went off the pain meds, maybe 2 or 3 hours a nite.
Avatar f tn As the result of a back injury in February, I began taking Soma and 10 mgs of hydrocodone at night to help me sleep. I took no pain killers during the day, just Skelaxin. I stopped taking Skelaxin several weeks ago and am now in the process of discontinuing the Hydrocodone. I took the last Soma and 1/2 of a 5 mg tablet several nights ago. This is my second round with trying to get off this med. The problem is the insomnia or sleeplessness that occurs in the middle of the night.
Avatar f tn m sticking with it though. Can anyone tell me what works best for anxiety and insomnia over the counter??? Thanks so much!!
1171652 tn?1264091397 I have been taking whatever mg i could get, 5, 7.5 and 10's of hydrocodone for at least 6 mo. daily. Up to 6000mg. I am 48 hours into withdraw. I WANT to beat this...... I had an script for Ultram from a few months ago and was told if i start taking that it will help with the withdraws. The only thing is the reason i stopped taking them was because of a nauseous feeling and insomnia. What the heck though i have that already!
Avatar f tn I'm on day 4 of detox from a low dosage of hydrocodone and my worst symptom is insomnia. I took Tylenol PM last night and it didn't work. I've tried to get in touch w/ my doctor today to prescribe a muscle relaxer like Valium but nobody has returned my call. I don't want to go another night without sleep! I feel like it will make me cave in. Has anyone ever taken Unisom?
Avatar n tn You are going to be ok! It will be a few days of not feeling well and low energy. Maybe some insomnia, but it shouldn't last too long. You were not on it that long, and your dose was not real high. Don't give up. Going back to the pills is not the answer or a fix to the WD. It only fixes it temporarily. The best thing is to go thru it and get it over now! It may not be as bad as you think. Take hot baths and drink lots of fluids! Good luck!
Avatar f tn Ok, in a nutshell, I am a 55 yr old woman with chronic back and neck pain, Fibromyalgia, Lupus, Arthritis, "Mini" Fractures in severe areas of body, and very severe chronic insomnia. For the past 15 yrs for the most part my treatment has been manipulations and cortisone shots maybe 4-6 times a yr. along with Hydrocodone/APAP 10 mg/500mg 6 tabs daily and either Temazepam or Ambien at bedtime.
Avatar f tn i've been takin hydrocodone 10/500 or 7.5/500 for a couple years on and off like maybe once or twice a month.until about 5 - 6 months ago it was everyday atleast 1 a day till it was 2 a day then 3or4. his is day 3(i stopped for one day then took 1 and a half of 10/500 now im back to day 3 of not takin it) of not takin it and i feel a little bit better but i couldnt sleep and felt agitated and anxious. i would get maybe 2 to 3 hours a sleep a for the past 2 nights.
968560 tn?1307451498 Hi mpace6983, all I can say is I had the same problem with Tramadol and I also got insomnia from Tramadol and hydrocodone. So, I think you could try Valium but that is stronger I think. Maybe you have a cross reaction with another drug too? I know you will get a better answer on this site. Good luck and hope your pain gets better.
Avatar f tn m trying to detoxify my body. The headaches are terrible as well as body ache/pain, bowel problems and insomnia. So I'm trying to determine whether to wean off or cold turkey. Does anyone have an insight of this? I would truly truly appreciate your thoughts.
Avatar m tn When you stop completely, you will have some uncomfy symptoms, but it should not be too horrible! Maybe some insomnia and restlessness and your body temp might be kinda hot and cold. Other than that, you should be pretty good! Best of luck!
Avatar m tn On the other hand I have heard some people say that Hydrocodone gives them more energy and insomnia when they take it, so it really depends on how your body reacts to it. No two people are the same in that regard. I remember when I used to take Norco I never knew if I would get drowsy or hyper when I took it. It affected me different at different times. You really can't say for sure either way. Sorry, I know this does not help.
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 m tn First RLS kept me awake and then just plain old insomnia. In 3 weeks I was sleeping fairly well with a bad night here and there. My energy level is back and I'm working out at the gym, walking 2-3 miles a day w/2 dogs. I walked every day throughout detox, no matter what or how i felt. Energy begets energy. After a week's WDs I went into aftercare so I won't have to repeat WDs again! Wish you luck! Keep posting and let us know how yr doing!
Avatar f tn My question is this...I've been on 60mg of hydrocodone a day for 5 years now. They are doctor prescribed, but lately I've been trying to cut down. Every time I do, for instance, take 2 a day, my legs ache intensely and I'm sooo fatigued. If I go 12 hours without one, the pain is so bad, I have to take one. I'm not sure if this is WD or has something to do with my other diagnosis. What are the average WD symptoms for going without lortab?
778109 tn?1235831127 I can only speak for myself but Xanax is far & away THE most effective drug bar none I've ever used in regards to solving insomnia. I've never liked pain meds even when I have pain (eg. Hydrocodone) or any other drugs (, anti-depressants, booze, etc.). For the first time in a very L-O-N-G time I can sleep more than 6 hours w/out waking. Does anyone else feel this way?
403399 tn?1201833095 Will this help me sleep the first few days of being off hydrocodone? I was prescribed 10mg. I am not sure if this is a lot or a little. I get the leg cramps and insomnia when I try to stop the HC. Any suggestions? Will this be helpful, or make the issue at hand worse?
Avatar n tn Thanks so much for the comments. I will plug through it. The only other issue I have[big one] is I have been drinking Rum to get to sleep. I am sure that doesn't help, but I can bare the insomnia.
Avatar m tn A physician may be able to prescribe you some Requip for the restless leg syndrome and possibly something like Seroquel low dose for the insomnia. The reason for this longer depression and insomnia symptoms is because Tramadol has an effect on the serotonin receptor in the central nervous system. That means you may also need an SSRI antidepressant to deal with some depression that may develop as the result of your withdrawal.
