Hydrocodone withdrawal medicines

Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone withdrawal medicines

vicodin

Avatar f tn But I think the Fentanyl may be covering the hydrocodone withdrawal. Fentanyl is very strong and the withdrawals can be long and difficult. Maybe you are one of the lucky ones but it's possible that 'it just hasn't hit you yet. I found the first few drops of the Fentanyl were easy but the lower I got the harder it became. I hope you can escape them and find a way to manage your pain.
6452367 tn?1430944592 As I have said before I am under a Dr's care taking 4 - 10/325 hydrocodone and 3-15mg 3x's a day of Oxycodone. I am now down to 2 hydro's and 2 Oxy's. Although I don't feel well at times, I was wondering if I slept for the next 3 days if the withdrawals will not be so bad?? What I mean is to rest up a few hours and then go back to bed again and repeat it til I think I can handle the rest of the withdrawals??
Avatar n tn So after a few days, any withdrawal you feel is going to be a tramadol withdrawal and not a hydrocodone withdrawal. And yes, it will be worse, there are many more horror stories about tram than hydrocodone. I had a doctor try to take me off of hydrocodone by giving me tramadol a few years ago when I was stopping meds after a surgery, and the withdrawals were terrible.
Avatar f tn prescribed by doc, six 7.25 a day (for lower back disc degenerative disease). script ran out and honestly am a weeks short of being able to get refill. doc said more or less, sorry cant do anything for you (i think pharmacy goofed on count, it involved changing pharms while on vacay - then changing back - no-one will admit to anything) facing a week of withdrawal freaks me out. i'm a 61 professional wondering how to lessen the withdrawal. please any suggestions would be sooooo appreciated.
Avatar n tn How long and intense will withdrawal be if I stop 4-5 vicodin a day that I have taken regularly for months?
Avatar m tn I took hydrocodone for 3 yrs for back pain. Then I was changed to methadone, morphine and fentenyl patches within a short time. Now I've been on suboxone less than 3 weeks. I can not function on it. I do not want to stay on it a yr or more as the doctor said. Can I go back to hydrocodone and tamper off it??
Avatar m tn The difference with the Butrans patch versus hydrocodone is it has a ceiling effect after a certain dosage amount and it will cause withdrawal symptoms if it is mixed with a pure opioid like hydrocodone. As long as it is taken alone without the combination of pure opioids, it will continue to work and provide pain relief. If the Butrans patch still leaves a lot of pain behind and you feel you need a lower pain level to make it through your daily activities.
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 f tn Does anyone know if hydrocodone withdrawal causes calcium, Vit D and potassium levels to drop?
Avatar f tn Does anyone out there have any advice for pregnant women coping with hydrocodone withdrawal?
Avatar m tn Last week I posted a question pertaining to the symptoms associated with hydrocodone withdrawal. I don't seem to be able to locate the responses to my post. What am I doing wrong? I recently had a severe back injury and was taking as many as 10 vicodin per day .When the pain began to subside I discontinued the hydrocodone and immediately began to experience symptoms of nausea,weakness and general malaise. I'm down to 1/2 a pill in the morning and 1/2 pill in the late afternoon.
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!
