Mixing hydrocodone with oxycodone

Common Questions and Answers about Mixing hydrocodone with oxycodone


Avatar m tn It is never an easy task to select pain medications that not only work but work well together. The biggest concern with mixing Morphine with Xanax is the possibility of respiratory depression. You will find better information about the two medications compatibility from your pharmacist. I recently was on MS Contin (long acting morphine) and my PCP allowed me to take Valium at HS with the MS Contin. Obviously Valium and Xanax are similar.

Avatar f tn Hi, Thanks for the comments. I ended up on this website because I googled the question, "Can I mix Hydrocodone with Methodone. I enjoyed the testimonies and joined. I am not addicted to Hydocodone (no, not in denial, ha!) I just ended up having to take so many of them that my doctor said I needed something stronger. I was getting immune to them and she didn't want me taking so many a day. I didin't either.

Avatar n tn I have been taking various painkillers for over 10 years....also I have been mixing them with xanax or valium....Which, from what people tell me makes me appear drunk although I cannot tell myself.....The time has come where I need to find my way out of this horrible cyclone of despair....for myself and my children....
Avatar n tn I have ankylosing spondylitis, which causes a lot of pain in my back, neck and ribs. I think I can manage the pain with ibuprofen alone, and I want to quit the hydrocodone. I'm so glad I found this great website. It's a good feeling knowing there are other people with the same problem. Here's my question - I'm hoping I can taper down the hydrocodone and avoid a lot of the withdrawal symptoms. For a while I was taking 10 Vicoprofen pills at a time.
Avatar n tn Due to chronic pain I was put on Hydrocodone (Loritab 750) I was prescribed 2 a day 500mg to start then 2 a day 750 up to 3 a day all in a 2 year period. Just recently because of my drs concern for the tylenol affect to my liver I now use the Duragesic Patch 50 mg which has been such a relief...I am able to do almost anything without worrying about the pain I will feel tomorrow. The dr was happy to give me the patch and I am happy to have it. What is this doing to me physically...
Avatar n tn normal, never-mind to get a buzz. The energy I felt and I could just deal with everything...I could deal with work, teenagers, my health, etc. BUT only if I had my pills, and mind you I took vicoprofen 7.5 as directed only. Even if I felt the pains of withdrawal come over me...I would wait out that 4-hr., because I WAS NOT AN ADDICT, you see. Six-months later, I had to accept the fact that I cannot stop...that I have a problem...that I cannot function without...
900459 tn?1304996859 This is no good no good at all and i knew it has been going on but didnt think it had gotten so bad and it is my father and this is one of the hardest things i have ever had to type and i really dont even know where to start but i will try well my dad is 52 and like me was a plumber and taught me everything i know about it and he did it for 32 years and well 10 years ago my dad was diagnosed with parkansins and it has progressed he isnt horrible or anything like that but it has messed with his b
1474625 tn?1371100679 They're PHYSICALLY DEPENDENT. Addiction by definition includes drug seeking and taking more than prescribed or mixing with benzos, alcohol, etc., in order to "get high." (The methadone might potentiate a buzz from the benzo, but it's not the methadone doing it.) 3. The medical community never uses, acknowledges, tells you or prescribes GABAPENTIN at a dose that will virtually eliminate the worst withdrawal symptoms. 4.
617167 tn?1221161953 I am a supporter of MMT as long as it is presented with all the facts good and bad, and clinics are not always in touch with the whole truth (like iv users beware of cravings to shoot and the temptation to do coke, or beware of mixing this with benzos/alcohol as it cam kill in large enough doses) the clinic near me is only worried about money and has few meetings and inexperienced and uneducated counselors. i left but now take a stable dose of methadone out of the clinic.
Avatar m tn The ER Opiate I hope I can be on is Zohydro (the ER hydrocodone) as I'm familiar with that narcotic component and feel more comfortable on it compared to Oxycodone as I don't want to take the road of keep taking stronger opiates. If you have experience with ER opiates other than Zohydro, it would be very much appreciated if you could share. Thanks!
302738 tn?1192741037 5 mg / Acetaminophen - 167 mg Oral Solution / 5 ml, with a dosage of 10 ml 5 times daily if needed for pain; that's a total of 25 mg of hydrocodone per day. Trouble is, the perscription was only for one bottle with NO refills. I am nearly out. I didn't take any on Saturday or Sunday. Monday I had bad diarrhea. I stumbled across some archived threads of this forum while I was trying to find out if the runs were a withdrawal syptom. Yep, they are. Monday I took 2 half doses. Tuesday none.
Avatar m tn I am opiate tolerant and have been using painkillers almost daily for the last 3 years. mainly hydrocodone and oxycodone. I have tolerated doses up to 300mg/day but my tolerance is not quite that high as of late. My question relates to the safe use of opiates when they are taken on their own without mixing with other drugs or alcohol and not injected. In an opiate tolerant person such as myself using doses of said drugs orally, what are the chances of accidental overdose?
Avatar m tn i was prescribed oxycodone 5mg or tabs 2 at a time for back pain and cyclobenzaprine 10mg i was having severe pain so i took 2 oxycodone and 2 of the cyclobenzaprines and also 2 hydrocodone 5/500's i have a high tolerance for pain killers but i want to know if i am in any danger?
323238 tn?1223756954 After hearing about all these acciendents with people taking the wrong medication or to much of something while mixing it with something else...ect..I'm now terrified of taking medication.,And I was doing so much better, now my anxiety has sky rocketed...and its in a very weaird way,I still feel sorta panicky, But it seems like i'm always going to pass out or sometthing, like sensation u get when u close and open ur eyes. Like ur looking at the room for the first time that day or something..
1386425 tn?1280122758 The shakes come from taking way to many Somas. There's actually a few nicknames for this action, "The Soma Shakes" or "The Soma Shuffle". I've experienced it many times, especially when mixing it with opiates. The shakes happen because the muscular and neurological systems are so depressed that it's hard for the body to operate properly.
Avatar n tn If this person is already tolerant to the opiods then there is less of this side effect happening. Mixing Xanax with opiods and the sleeping pill is a dangerous combination, especially in high amounts.
Avatar m tn Congrats on trying to get clean. I suggest getting involved with AA or NA, maybe even some drug counseling. It helped me out quite a lot. Unfortunately there isn't much you can do for your other family member. As long as she remains defensive and unopen to her possibly having a problem any attempts to get her to change may be unsuccessful, they may even do more harm. The key here is to take care of yourself. Do what you need to do to get and stay clean.
303824 tn?1294875001 Only the right key will fit the lock, and only opioid-like drugs fit opioid receptors.
372416 tn?1242669352 She is worried that he'll soon be chewing them up too as he takes them along with all the other lortabs he has. I've never taken oxy and couldn't give her info, but told her I'd write my dear friends here. Has anyone chewed them? They're time-released aren't they? I chewed my lortabs and actually taught him to do that. Is Oxy chewing much more dangerous? How long will it take for him to search for more, if he already hasn't? His hydro habit is about 6 years old.
Avatar n tn I must have close to 300 pills in this house of that stuff. The Dr. would write a script for breakthrough pain every month with the oxy script, but I never used them, I would pick them up with my script and put the bottle away 60 pills each month for the last year. So with the oxy in which I am trying to taper off of. I figure if I move it upstairs and in the drawer too, then every dose means I have to get up for it, make me think twice about a boost dose. Right.
1272082 tn?1343107140 What I do know is Tramadol and Demerol work differently then opiates such as morphine, oxycodone, hydrocodone etc. I would talk to the surgeon and ask for something else, if so I would bring the unused pain meds to show you arent taking them. Pain itself will add to your stress level and due to my situation the Doctors who Dx'ed me at the Mayo/ Minn. spent some time explaing this at length, they also said surgery can cause it to happen so I assume it can effect someone with POTS worse.
Avatar f tn Oxycodone is more powerful than Hydrocodone. Oxycontin is a sustained release form of Oxycodone and takes a long time to clear out of your body, thus probably a lot more uncomfortable to discontinue extended periods of use. Methadone and Suboxone are both opioids used to withdraw from euphoria inducing opiates. Methadone is often a life long solution to addiction, and carries the addiction stigma in requiring daily clinic visits for dosing.
Avatar f tn The problem that has now arisen is that he is mixing that large amount of alcohol with the Oxycodone pills - several. They are making him into a monster. This past Sunday, he drank a bottle of wine and several beers on top of who know how many Oxycodone pills. He then proceeded to get mad at my 7 yo for crying because we have to give our cat away for biting. I was upset too.
Avatar f tn Hi. Things get a lot better with time. Did your Dr recommend CT ? You can see if you are better suited to a slower taper plan. I had 18 weeks hard physical therapy for my knee. It helped so much & I was able to avoid surgery.
Avatar f tn I'm so glad you got back to us but I'm really sorry to hear your Dr would not allow you a few more pills while you're healing from this accident. I'm not surprised really. At least you'll be able to get your prescription a little early so that should help some. I would like to know if anyone has actually read these new laws where a Dr can only prescribe 4 pills per day. Is this truly a law or just something Drs feel comfortable with? I'm so sorry you had this accident.
Avatar f tn My first real post here and I hope I don't offend anyone. I just don't want people to judge me or hate me for not admitting to being a drug addict...because I never really considered myself being one. I don't take drugs recreationally...never felt "high" from my pain meds...just made me feel normal...so I could function without so much pain from my Fibromyalgia, CFS, RLS & Arthritis (among other things).
4522800 tn?1470329434 See my Dad had never taken a med in his life and said that the pill he gets right now every four hours does wonders. So I kept checking with him and he was talking OK again..He had all of his mind with him and he can hear. When he heard those 2 girls say "This is it" he seemed to go to a depression state. Before all this he would say that he lived a long life and he is ready..We where able to talk about it all. SO I go in Fri night and he is just Out-Of-It..
