Common Questions and Answers about Mixing hydrocodone xanax


374690 tn?1224556189 Good Evening! Does anybody know about how many milligrams of Xanax I could safely take to get through the first few days of withdrawls? I know it should be every 8 hours, but do you think it's okay to use more often? I have taken a half of a 0.5mg. before & it put me to sleep. Thanks!
Avatar n tn DON'T start taking Kava or Valerian UNTIL you stop the Xanax or it will potentiate the effects of the xanax.
Avatar m tn I have severe back problems. Currently taking 3 ten mil hydrocodone a day, and one 2 mil xanax at night for sleep. The tabs do not work anymore. Dr. said we could try morphine 20ml. twice a day. question is will I have to quit the xanax at night? I read where they are not mixable. Can anyone help me here. I meet with the Dr. this week, he does not yet know of the xanax that I take at night. I just started them a couple of weeks ago. Sleeping better than I have in ten years.
Avatar n tn I lost my younger brother to an deadly mix of drugs, He was taking xanax and some one spiked his beer with heroin. so just a reminder to all here at the fourm XANAX AND HEROIN is a very deadly mix. i think it is a very important topic, to mention any type of mixtures of drugs that kill. i did not know that oxy and methodone is a deadly mix.
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 ok this is a question i have...im taking 2 xanax a day now in 1/4's but i have only 3 left..can i take a 1/4th then melatonin and so on to kinda rotate or is that a bad mix? or sleep aid? or should i just call and find me some more xanax's? lol sorry but im kicking hydro's and well i tried to kick them both but i need these to kick the other and then plan on working on them. i just felt it was too dangerous to kick those 2 meds at one time being what they are..

Avatar f tn Most of them open ended up in hospital visits and I found a friend of mine that has methadone so I took that part of it about 10 mg of methadone and then 50 mg of hydrocodone. Also take 2 mg of Xanax a day and 2 mg of Klonopin at night. I don't know how to go about finding a doctor that can listen to me without seeing me as a junkie. I found one before that I just wanted told him the truth and he was excepting of it and gave me a prescription for 120 hydrocodone 10 mg/325 five times a day.
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 Welcome! Finally a question about Xanax for one of the few Xanax junkies on this board. It is a subject I know well. First of all, if you're not taking Xanax a lot now...don't start. It is a real ***** to get off of. All addictive drugs are but I think this is the worst. If you take it with alcohol, you will get really messed up. Like passing out messed up, not fun messed up, and if you take enough of both together you can die.
221913 tn?1372280261 I have been on Vicoprophen (7.5 mg hydrocodone/200 mg Ibuprophen) for all that time and was going thru 240 a month by the time it was all over. Now my doctor is trying to ween me off of the Vicoprophen and I'm down to 180 a month and he'll probably continue to lower the quantity as the months continue.
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 m tn I think the big issue here is the persons level of resistance to Xanax and the actual amount of Xanax and alcohol they combined. If anyone has ever died from mixing such a small amount of Alprazolam and a couple drinks then I have never heard of such a thing. One can also get alcohol poisoning and die from drinking too much too fast and Xanax is not required.
Avatar n tn You're having withdrawals from all of the above. I'm not very knowledgeable about Xanax, but I do know that stopping drinking cold turkey can be quite dangerous. I highly recommend calling your dr & explaining to them what's going on. Only a dr can give u the best advice to help you get off the meds/alcohol! Ps...that's pretty awesome that you're making a change for the better! Stay strong, but stay safe...please contact a dr.
Avatar n tn I've been taking hydrocodone for the past five years, and at maximum prescribed levels (1-2 tablets every 4-6 hours - - which, naturally, means 2 every 4 hours) for the past two. How do I get off this stuff? Cold turkey? Phased withdrawal?
439522 tn?1214954789 I take 10mg lexapro daily for anxiety, and went cold turkey hydrocodone monday (7.5 mg 4/5 times a day). Will valerian interact with the Lexapro? Any ideas? I'm thinking of taking the valerian tonight to help sleep vs. using a xanax. Trying to beat the stupid RLS...drives me nuts. Yes, I'll try a hot bath before bed...lol....but it happens in the middle of the night.
Avatar n tn I didn't take any xanax for fear of mixing drugs and ODing. I had run out of pain pills. Last weekend was one of the worst of my life. I felt terrible every second and wanted to kill myself more than ever. I don't know if it was the coke, the lack of xanax, the lack of pain pills, or all of it, but I almost lost it. After that I never want to do coke again, or take pain pills unless I truly need them. But what of the Xanax? I've nearly run out, and I no longer have insurance.
Avatar f tn It's not really that great of a combo since the cns depressants xanax and hydro seem to work against the stimulating effect of adderall. I ended up quitting the xanax as well after a while since it I felt it was diminishing the focus adderall gives you.
Avatar m tn When i took to many vicodin and than lortab at night i would be to wired to sleep and even xanax would not always help. I used the pills for energy for the day so i tried to lay off at night but they affect each person different.
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 n tn both hydrocodone and xanax in high doses wouldn't cause someone to "nod" off or drool. That sounds more like heroin or something similar in strength.
Avatar m tn Yes provided your tolerance is high enough. Just be careful mixing the xanax with the methadone. To much Xanax with your opioids can cause death.
286124 tn?1214942128 If you don't know what the normal high is then you might just very well be experiencing the feeling of hydrocodone. But, the funny feeling I got was cured with food. After I ate some food I didn't feel that weird shakey uneasy emptiness. Water will help, but food made me feel much more stable. Like a sandwich, a bagel/cream cheese. oatmeal. somewith with good healthy carbs/protein.
621290 tn?1226723861 i DO find that Adderall does help with w/d symptoms to an extent. there are reports on the web about people mixing Xanax with Suboxone (buprenorphine) and dying. the reports seem to gloss over that these people were SHOOTING these substances. so in the case that you are shooting them. don't. Adderall can be psychologically habit-forming, but i don't even like it enough to abuse it. feels like i drank 20 cups of coffee. yuck. and good luck getting off the Subs.
Avatar n tn I'd pop a few with some painkillers before work just to cope. Then pop a few more as the day went on. Did mail order on the Xanax as well as Fiorit to get 3 months supply. I ended up using about 240 Zanaz and 270 Fiorit in < 30 days. Would / have taken any other pain med that I could get my hads on. Have had kidney stone problems and would receive Demerol during an attack / then Percocet for the after effects. Weaseled some Vicodins from my Urologist a few time becuase of pain.
Avatar f tn At one time, my original doctor had me one this mixture of meds daily and this is no lie, i was on this for 8 years every day, 3 40 milligram methadose wafers, 4 loratab 10mg hydrocodone/650 tylenol, and 4mg of xanax. The xanax was to be taken with the loratab for break through pain in between the methadone wafers. I was on this for eight years. Doctor passes away. New doctor puts me on 4 methadone 10's a day. 4 loratabs and the 4 xanax. Cut it that much in a one month span.
900459 tn?1304996859 Thanx for the replies and i will stay clean thats for sure it just scares me so much about my father because like i said he has parkansins disease so pain meds isnt the only med he takes far from it he takes ALOT of meds but he absolutely has to and what scares me the most is the mixing of the pain meds and the xanax because i know that is the biggest cause of fatal overdose and that has always scared me to death even tho i was taking 350-400mg oxy a day when i was in my active addiction that is
Avatar n tn Hydrocodone Tablets 500 mg, 5mg (vicodin) these pills are def a narcotic and 10 of them is nothing short of a BAG OF DOPE!! i also drink mabye 10 drinks on friday and 10 drinks on saturday with them at the club and when its time to go to sleep ill take two .5mg xanax its been a routine for me for the last 4 months or so and i enjoy it so much that i dont plan on stopping any time soon. The funny thing is that mon thru fri i can work and excercise normally and sleep semi normally.
Avatar m tn Another thing that seemed to help me by taking the ultram is the danger of taking it, I knew in the morning that if i took it that no matter what I could not take anythign else for at least 8 to 12 hours because I am too afraid of mixing anything...even if its only one, i'm a very conservative person actually. i'm an addict too, big time. i guess it is fortunate that i've always been too afraid to try antything. not even cigarettes, never tryed!
