Hydrocodone recreational use

Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone recreational use


Avatar m tn I found this sight researching how to detox from Vicodin. I'm impressed! I take Vicodin every day and really want to stop. I'm embarrassed to admit that it has a hold on me as I have convinced myself that I can stop any time and that I'm in control of my 'recreational' drug use. When I think about getting through work tomorrow without it or not using it to help me 'stuff' my issues I feel a paralyzing fear and don't know if I even can or want to do it.

If you can DO NOT SMOKE ANYTHING!!!!!! This is an important question. Some research studies have shown that some women who use recreational drugs during pregnancy use marijuana, thinking that it won't harm the fetus as much as, harder, or more than other recreational drugs.

Avatar n tn Hydrocodone can be very addictive, so use with caution. I can't say what you are experiencing has anything to do with hydrocodones, I hear steroids can have some crazy effects on people too. You have to go about 48 hours or more to start having withdrawals from hydrocodone more than likely though. But you should stop taking them as soon as you can, the withdrawals will be worse the longer you wait. Right now they would not be too bad for you, I don't think.
Avatar n tn Wow as I read your post I had shivers go down my spine. Marry me but only if I can have my Coke? Sweetie you need to run as fast as you possibly can and now!! Listen I understand that you love this man and I'm sure you want to believe that your love can heal him or make him change but it WON'T happen. I'm a drug addict and let me explain how this works. When I was using I would do whatever it took in order to get my drug.
Avatar f tn Sure, it is certainly possible for an addict to maintain long, indefinate periods of stable and minimal drug use but at some point, most, if not all, will eventually succumb to temptation. There is no arbitrary number of months or years where an addict can use responsibly before the inevitable binge occurs. Its different for everyone. Some people NEVER manage to do it......EVER!
Avatar f tn I was really naive to to think that pills were not a big deal... it seemed harmless in comparison to other methods of recreational drug use that I put my body through. I have been taking pain medication for 3 years now. The withdrawal is so hard it feels. I just want to know is there any, and i mean ANYTHING, that aids with this opiate withdrawal?? I start feeling anxious and sweaty within 6 hours from my last dose. Diarrhea that feels like lava.
Avatar m tn Otherwise all drugs are krap to me, recreational use? What is that????????? I often thought I could use recreationally, trust me I was wrong. When in doubt, go without!!
1159193 tn?1265479257 I came across the new craze, codeine parties. People taking them recreational thought that was quite scary. Also when searching for codeine withdrawal you would get sites or pop ups selling you the bloody stuff. Same with people have a view of its prescribed it not dangerous attitide. What do you think?
Avatar m tn s marijuana use is not deemed excessive and does not interfere with daily function, subject must be instructed to discontinue any current use of recreational marijuana prior to entry into study and throughout the study period
Avatar f tn s an alcoholic. When I finally told him that I was taking pills for recreational use he said nothing for fear of him having to quit drinking. (Just my thought on his thinking). We are both grieving and our marriage is struggling! Should I just quit cold turkey? OR have I even been on them long enough to be addicted? Thank you!
Avatar f tn At about 18, for the FMS, I was switched to Lortab (Hydrocodone) 5/500. I am still to this day on Lortab 5/500, though since I was about 20, it has been no more than one 5/500 mg tablet per day to help me sleep through the pain. Normally I take between 1/2 to 3/4 of a pill. Additionally, I am on Celexa.
Avatar n tn Oh I also quit taking Ambien when I quit the hydrocodone. Now only take a Xanax in the morning and evening. I use melatonin to help sleep. It’s better than nothing. I don’t really know how damaging taking such a low dose every day of the hydrocodone is. I do know it sucks. I have real pain in my back and knee. I cannot eat Tylenol or Advil all day because it’s just as bad for my organs. I’m really at an impass as to what to do. Hate the pain, hate the pain killers. Any advice?
Avatar f tn I have been on mainly hydrocodone ( pretty high doses for quite some time typically 100-120 day) my pm dr put me on fentanyl patch for awhile and I asked go back on hydrocodone patch scared me. I have RSD alot pain swelling right shoulder and arm for almost three years now.
Avatar f tn I started going to a clinic 7 days ago to seek help for Hydrocodone withdrawals. I had been on Hydrocodone for about 4 years and my new Dr felt Methadone would help. Day one they gave me 30mg. I could not function and I was very sick, vomiting, etc. I told them that was too high that I wanted no more than 10-15 mg per day. I was a little shocked at their encouraging people to take high doses and increase 5 mg per day.
Avatar f tn Does oxycontin as recreational use exhibit symptoms of indifference and apathy and unconcern over everyday obligations and responsibilities which prior to use were contradictory to the persons character. In other words a complete change of personally untecogisable by loved ones?
Avatar n tn To joke about some one considering taking cocaine for recreational use who has had three bypass surgeries and is taking blood thinners is just a little reckless. Takes all kinds I guess........................
Avatar n tn I am currently 13 weeks pregnant and have taken 4 10mg hydrocodone for back problems that I have due to a car accident. While my doctor says that there isn't any risks associated I'm concerned. I don't want anything to be wrong with my baby. I made the decision that I would just live with the pain for the rest of my pregnancy because I feel like the worrying over the meds is worse than the pain. I would die if I hurt my unborn child!!! Thanks for the help!
Avatar n tn NOT FOR LONG...YOU MAY START OUT ONLY ON WEEKEND BUT IT WILL escalate. i used coke for 5 years heavily and i started out only on the weekends. before long it was everyday all day and every night all night. it is a horrible drug the eventually completely robs you of yourself.
Avatar f tn I am, or should I say was, a recreational drug user. In the last two months I smoked pot regularly and took approx. 3 vicodin 10mg and 1 percocet 10mg to help with back pain from a car accident. I don't regularly use pain meds and am far from addicted, I am just so worried that those couple pills hurt my little one. :( help!
1563685 tn?1310402354 Well, pot is acually a medical drug. I wouldn't say IV drug use is recreational because it is abusive drug use. Cocane ...sp? what you snort up your nose is a natual coca leaf that is also legal in different places in the world. Just not legal when they all chemicals to it. The IV is the needle being used basically when heroin is in liquid and they injected.
Avatar m tn m not completely certain what other effects hydrocodone has on the body over long term use, but you start to get into real trouble when it becomes a physical dependency issue. Would be best to go the route of a non-narcotic medication for migraines, but easier said than done, many don't work.
