Hydrocodone side effects anxiety

Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone side effects anxiety


Avatar m tn Sooooo---get ready for some reaction here bc but i think if you are telling the truth and the whole truth about the hydrocodone use---and if you are feeling good and no big side effects---then please do not change a thing!!! Larry it could kill him at this age to go thru any kind of wd's ok. BC----i can share more with you if you like so post back and let us know you are still breathing HA! (ya know---the age and all!). Alright post back old man.
Avatar m tn My doctor advised against Xanax use except for emergencies. No anti-depressant worked or had severe side effects. Surprisingly, I found that the hydrocodone relieved my depression significantly . The doctor had switched me to a lower dose (2 7.5 pills) for pain control but now I use hydrocodone mainly as an anti depressant. The full strength in the morning really helps mood wise and a half pill in the afternoon seems all I need to keep the bleak mood away.
Avatar n tn Finally I went to an outpatient program which treated me with buprenorphine for 4 days. I did not suffer any side effects or withdrawal. I feel like a new man now. You should look into it.
Avatar n tn Physical dependence, potential psychological dependence, possible liver toxicity (because it is usually combined with acetaminophen, which at high levels is toxic). There are also potential side effects which are mainly gastrointestinal.
Avatar f tn However, if someone will take it like you said, and I do, 1-2 a day for just a few days, it will get you through the wd's w/no side effects. Just take a minimal amount, for a minimal amount of time. I would take one an hour before going to work so that I could work. I do understand though that we as addicts are wont to abuse pills. However, if your goal is truly to quit, then one wouldn't expect you to abuse the methadone.
2126606 tn?1346348724 Some of you may have seen the recent news surrounding hydrocodone, but I wanted to share it here for those of you who haven't as it’s an important issue that could potentially affect millions of people. To give you a brief overview, an advisory panel to the FDA has recommended tighter restrictions on hydrocodone-containing drugs, which would essentially classify them among the most dangerous prescription medications available to patients.
Avatar n tn As with all medications, you may experience side effects when you take WELLBUTRIN XL. Side effects may be more common shortly after you start treatment. The most common side effects with WELLBUTRIN XL are weight loss, loss of appetite, dry mouth, skin rash, sweating, ringing in the ears, shakiness, stomach pain, agitation, anxiety, dizziness, trouble sleeping, muscle pain, nausea, fast heartbeat, sore throat, and urinating more often.
Avatar n tn Try Ultram,(Tramodol) it's a synthetic narcotic like drug but not on the narcotic control list and it does not produce those irritating side effects that codiene and percocet does. For me it actually kills the pain better too. Your general practioner will be much happier if you ask for that then for the supposed stronger stuff! Oh. it does have some mood elevating effects too so it is somewhat addicting.
Avatar n tn Seems he may be longer at this transition that he originally thought....any must be experiencing other side effects?
422425 tn?1307996590 I am having some strange symptoms that I think might be side effects....Just wondering if anyone who has taken it had really weird sleep distubances like funky dreams and feeling like you are drowning. I don't want to quit taking it because it really helps, but this is weird. Just wondering, thought I would post this before asking my DR.
Avatar m tn hi everyone,i have been taking 10mg hydrocodone for about the past 5 months, i take anywhere between 4-6 pills throughout the day,i suffer from extreme restless leg syndrome but it only effects my feet, suprisingly the hydrocodone relieves this sensation i have in my feet and im able to relax, without them my feet drive me absolutely insane and causes mental agitation,depression,anxiety,anger and overwhelming thoughts.
Avatar n tn What did the savella side effects do to some people i hear they are horrible?
Avatar n tn I have not really had any withdrawal effects other than feeling a bit nervous. I'm very nervous that it will get far worse than this, but it doesn't matter, because I have finally made up my mind. I just found out that we are having another baby-and I am soooo excited. I want this stuff out of my system and over and done with once and for all. Can anyone tell me what I am likely to exerience in the nex hours/days? Thanks in advance and I am so glad that you all are here.
Avatar n tn After 3-4 weeks of quitting the phenobarbital, I experienced so many side effects and pain. So I stayed on the Valium, but it was not helping nothing at all. So I went to the Doctors, and He gave me a perscription for Ambien CR 12.5 (for my horrible insomnia) and REFILLED my perscription of 7.5/500 Hydrocodone @ 4 to 6 times Daily. Now I just got off the forum about Ambien, and it's highly addictive attributes, so I switched to 3mg of Lunsta. Now I have been on and off of the 7.
Avatar f tn I had good results with melatonin about 10mg. Some use Tylenol PM. Take a long brisk walk this afternoon. That helps with sleep too.
Avatar n tn I take 12 other meds for hiv and side effects. I'd like someone to comment on my situation.... As it is sometimes very upsetting to know I am in this situation. My heart goes out to everyone who has had any kind of suffering.
Avatar m tn You may probably be one of the rare ones who are extremely lucky to have only mild withdrawals. With Hydrocodone you should be way farther into some unpleasant symptoms by now and on top of that you are sleeping. That tells me you will probably get off lucky this time. I have not slept for 8 days before even on just hydrocodone! Even though it is easy this time you should never go back because it may not be so easy next time and that is also a poisonous dose of acetaminophen you were taking.
Avatar n tn If you're having side effects from the medication that are causing you to think twice, then that is another story. The withdrawal has several stages, the first being 4-5 days of severe flu-like symptoms. That is usually followed by a period of depression and low energy. Different people experience different things for different periods of time. But the bottom line is if you want to quit, quit.
Avatar n tn Take a few minutes to read many of these posts and you will see that while the drug gives some intensely good feelings (why else would so many of us be addicted?), it has some real negative side effects as well. I think reading up on this and learning all you can will help you to eventually appraoch your husband.
Avatar f tn Hi, am very interested in getting some feed back on side effects or symptoms expierenced after detox/hospitalization. I am currently on my 5th mth since hospitalization and on the road to recovery. There are some issues that may or may not be apart of this process.. Example: weakness, nerve pain, nausea etc. Is it the medication being taken or is it apart of the process?
Avatar m tn but around 2pm i start getting flu-like symptoms and they last till i fall asleep. im not sure if they are side effects from the suboxone(it is listed as common side effect) or if im not taking enough suboxone and having wd.but like i said i feel fine in the morning.
Avatar n tn Unfortunately, I do not think the hydrocodone method is viable due to the dependancy and other harmful side effects. Interesting observation though.
Avatar f tn My wife took Lyrica after a wreck and it had side effects (swelling). I don't see how it helps. I did go to my doctor and got on 10 mg Lexapro right after stopping. It is kickin in now. I have backed off Xanax as anxiety is much better at three weeks. All the crazy stuff is normal. Mind over matter. Just hang until one day...it happens. For me it is three weeks. After a month, it will be over for me. I was taking about 150mg for too, too long. Keep after it.
Avatar m tn Haven't had a pill in 24 hrs. and feel the same as I did yesterday with none of those side effects. I'm done. uncomfortable or not in a day or two. I really don't think that will happen though. I've got some good things going on today and some good things in my life right now. So I am done.
Avatar n tn Hello, I recently posted and had gone 6 weeks without taking any hydrocodone. I went to the doctor and he perscribed me more (2 a day) and I have been withdrawaling and using again and again throughout this process. Everytime I stop using it gets harder to quit and this time it is extremely hard to bear. I have been off of them for 12 days now, but my perscription will not be ready to be refilled untill 2 weeks more.
Avatar n tn I have been given celexa,xanax and the lot of anti depressants and they did nothing but make me very aggresive,made me sleepy,grouchy,sick,head aches I had alot of different side effects and the big side effect was that they ended up just making my depression worse. A few years ago I got a tooth pulled and was given lorcet for pain. FOR ME it was a God send. It gave me confidence,my social anxiety was gone and I mean gone,no more depression,I quit smoking and I rarely drink anymore at all.
