Hydrocodone withdrawal at home

Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone withdrawal at home


Avatar m tn If he is only stoping Hydrocodone he will be able to detox at home. however he must anticipate and be willing to go through the withdrawals which include, muscle aches, stomache cramps, sneezing, headaches, nausea, diarreah, it is basically a very bad case of the flu. Make sure he's drinking a lot of water or gatorade. Bananas are good. Hot bathes, immodium, ginger ale, hot tea, light exercise.
Avatar n tn Hi. She needs to do this NOW before the addiction gets any worse. I was up to around 30 or more of those 10mg a day and right now I'm in rehab. You need to get her Clonidine for the withdrawl symptoms. Thats what they give you in rehab. Its only a blood pressure medication but has be found to also relieve symptoms of opiate WD's. I'm telling you I tried to detox from the pain pills at home MANY times and failed every time. The WD's are HORRIBLE.
Avatar n tn Has anyone ever experienced the following symptoms during hydrocodone withdrawal: dilated pupils, nervousness, cold hands, sweating and talking about things which make absolutely NO SENSE. My husband is recovering from surgery and has stopped taking the pain medication. Last night, he began talking nonsense. He is also having vivid dreams that he swears are reality. I don't know if he is hallucinating or what but it is very scary. Can anyone shed some light on this?

Avatar m tn I have been in detox before. I am detoxing at home now by taking tramodol to help with the withdrawal pain. Am I just replacing one drug with another?
Avatar n tn This forum is so helpful and appreciate all help given, Hope this is the time to kick it for good. Had really bad marital problems at home and was using for the wrong reason to numb the pain. Wrong kind of pain!! I plan to talk to a therapist to help. Thanks.
Avatar n tn If you have any health problems, it might be best to talk to your doctor first....but detox at home has been done by many people, including myself and I am over 4 months clean now. Good luck and let us know how we can help you! Keep posting for support.
Avatar n tn Have you checked out any 12 step programs? I hope you are doing this at home and have the time to do it as if you had the flu. Staying off is the problem. I can't think of doing it for good. It's much EASIER if you only worry about staying off for just today. As you acquire days, the desire to stay off will become stronger. If you agonize over "quitting" forever it will make it harder. You really only need to worry about today, today. :) It makes it so much easier!
Avatar f tn I just started to detox yesterday from Hydrocodone. At 2pm today it will be 48 hrs since I have taken my last hydrocodone, but it still does not feel easier. I fear I will never be myself again and it scares me. I used to be such an active peron and hydrocodone completely crippled me. It started for my back pain, moved to mental enjoyment and temporary heightenment. It just started lasting less and less until I needed a higher dose to maintain the same feeling.
Avatar m tn m so sorry you are going through all of this pain. I agree to get the Toradol filled and try that. There should be no withdrawal at all with that and it does work. At least it did for me. If not, try and keep the Tramadol as low as you can to avoid any lengthy withdrawal from it. BTW, why are you going on Vivitrol?
Avatar n tn I've been off hydrocodone for 2 weeks now and I feel great. It's the first time being clean in 2 years. But I've been starting to feel weird little spasms in my stomach. Sometimes food goes right through me or it feels like my stomach is burning. Is this normal?
Avatar f tn attempts to quit failed. I was on day 2.5 of withdrawals and couldn't take it. I couln't sit still for 1 second, paced my house endlessly for hours...someof you know how it is so I won't go on. Funny thing happened. I ran out of my refill of 10mg hydrocodones early (as usualy) and found about 20 pills of 30mg morphine extended release. I made those last for a week...and when I saw I had 2 left I decided I would quit again.
757827 tn?1299016483 While there are many web sites dealing with Hydrocodone and Oxycodone withdrawal, there is a dearth of information on Dilaudid withdrawal on the web. I would appreciate any insight on what I can expect. Am I on the downside or will more crap come may way? Thanks.
Avatar f tn Hi, I have been taking hydrocodone for a little over a year now. I am really ashamed of this because I have never done drugs in my life; not even smoking a cigarette! I have a wonderful husband and two beautiful girls. I only take one a day at the same time everyday. I've noticed that I am craving more sweets and my glucose is up. I am ready to give this up because I have noticed a change in myself.
Avatar n tn t even make it a week at my job. And I did it, and did not even miss one day of work. Hydrocodone withdrawals are mild, really. Just eat a lot (force yourself) and drink a lot of fluids and take as many warm baths (baths help a LOT) as you can. If you can, take a few Valium or Ambien here and there for withdrawals, but only for 5-7 days. That way you don't get addicted to those. But sleeping through as much of the withdrawals as you can is never a bad idea.
Avatar f tn Has anyone completely quit morphine at home? My doctor wants me to quit but offers no guidance.
Avatar f tn Does anyone know if there is a reliable home drug test that can detect hydrocodone?
Avatar m tn t taken a pill since yesterday at about 7 AM, and I am already feeling better (at least better than awful) just a little off. Would you say I have gone through the worst, because I never truly felt dependent on the drug and took smaller amounts per day than I have seen other's in their stories (on this site). Thanks Again!!!
Avatar f tn Stay away from sugar, soda, and simple carbs. Do not consume caffeine at least 6 hours prior to bedtime. Take a look at my blogs about options for detox and recovery, as well as chronic pain control. You may also take a look at my clinic website where I also have my blogs and a lot of other info about drug addiction and recovery. Look into my clinic website as well.
