Oxycodone and caffeine

Common Questions and Answers about Oxycodone and caffeine


Avatar n tn I drink only one cup of coffee a day bacause I read that it restricts the flow of blood to the baby and that a baby can't metabolize caffeine like an adult. I'm wondering if coffee is so bad, then how can the dr.s be so non-chalant about oxycodone. I'm afraid that oxycodone will have adverse affects on the growing baby especially in the early stages. I'm only three weeks pregnant (gestation age). I have tried mentho and camphor patches and Tylenol, but they are negligently effective.
Avatar n tn My boyfriend and I have been taking both oxycontin and oxycodone for about 3 months on and off. Mostly on the last 6 weeks. I am now doing them in the morning before I leave the house. We are snorting them. We were taking about 80 to 120 mg a day. I stopped taking them last week for a few days and found my weakness unbearable. I could not even leave the house - no amount of caffeine would help.
Avatar n tn I'm 19 and been on oxycodone 30MG 4/day for over 7 months. I am now 6 days off the medication. When will I mentally start to feel normal again?
6577573 tn?1385008376 A proper diet with lots of lean proteins, fruits, and veggies is good. Try to stay away from caffeine, processed, sugary, and fatty foods. (I know, all the good stuff!) Just take a deep breath and try to keep things in perspective. It took you 12 years to get to this point, so it's going to take more than a few days to feel 100%. Take care of yourself and keep your head up.
Avatar f tn And I would take an excedrin in the morning to help ward off body aches and the caffeine in excedrin would help me to get going for the day. Keep in mind the first 1-4 days are the worst physically. The physical withdrawal seems to lessen after about a week, and then it's the mental withdrawal that starts to kick in at high gear. That was why I began the st. john's wort - it has helped so so much for the depression. And the depression does go away for most of us. It did for me.
Avatar f tn So here I am.... day 1 without Oxycodone. I could just go ahead and give up now, go have a pill and give up almost before i started, or I can see this through. My husband thinks I am coming down with something.... my cover story... the hours and days ahead will tell the tale of how far down I am going to come. It's unfortunate that I've put myself in a place where I have to come clean without really coming clean.
6722141 tn?1384133798 I was in a major car accident 2 years ago and was perscribed oxycontin and oxycodone. Now, it seems that I need to take it just to keep my sanity and it does get rid of my back pain. I feel so hopeless, I've lowered my dose four times and still suffer from withdrawl. I've been an addict since my early 20's. It all began with physical pain, migraines, kidney stones, 3 herniated discs in my lower lumbar spine, and many aches and pains. I can't sleep or eat.
374225 tn?1269902862 I pretended like it was personal me against the WDs and I fought dirty and mean. I knew I was tough and tough I was. The only easy day was yesterday! Once you know that you can do anything. Just tell yourself that yesterday was easier than today and it's supposed to be. Then gut it out.
Avatar f tn Also, sometimes just a caffeinated soda or coffee or tea can help relieve the headache too - just be sure not to drink TOO much caffeine or you could end up with a caffeine withdrawal headache and believe me, they are no fun! Once in a great while, after I've tried all the non-medicinal techniques and they haven't worked, I'll break down and give in and take an advil, but I always suffer for it - I get HORRIBLE stomach pains, nausea and vomiting from it.
Avatar m tn Went to my pain management dr and she scheduled an epidural steroid injection and gave me a prescription for 120 oxycodone 10/325 to take every 6 hours. I do not think the injection helped but the percocets definitely helped. I been back to her for 5 refills already and she's starting to get suspicious. She keeps telling me I need to see a surgeon, but i really dont have time to deal with that. I'm down to my last 25 pills, but stopped cold turkey yesterday at 3pm.
Avatar f tn Took like a month to feel myself again after stopping opiates and caffeine. Been hard because my back is still healing from major surgery and going back to work full time made my muscles very sore, but plowed through it and optimistic it will get better. Hardest was last week when I got the flu and everything felt like withdrawal again :( forgot what it felt like to have a cough reflex, and it sucked.
1395709 tn?1280430981 I can't have caffine to keep me awake due to a heart problem and I have issues with my throat that won't let me to swallow pills bigger then an Advil to help with sleeping, and pain. I was at my doctors and I told her whats going one....she gave me a script for more oxycodone...I'm fighting so hard not to get it filled, but the pain is to much to handle i don't know what to do please help!! I don't want to go back to where i was!
Avatar f tn I just caved in and took 30 mg. of oxycodone. The last one. I'm calling my doctor today and telling her I'm in withdrawal. I think jumping down from 75 mcg. to 50 mcg. fentanyl patch and then trying to stop the oxycodone cold was too much. We had a very serious issue with two of our kids yesterday. It involves legal stuff and now I just can't handle the withdrawals on top of this. I hope my doctor is going to be good.
1354414 tn?1277345378 A friend of mine went cold turkey off Oxycodone, and is suffering from major insomnia. This would be day 10. Is there anything I could do for them naturally? All the other w/d's that you see for this drug, they have been through but this is the one that is the worst for them. Melatonin does not work.
Avatar f tn I was on a combined total of 300mg of hydrocodone and oxycodone a day for pain, 200mg zoloft and 10mg ambien for my anxiety/PTSD. I had been through a ton of other meds before that but that is where I was when I stopped. I went "cold turkey" off everything. Ended up in the ER cuz my body went into shock from opiate withdrawal (was on opiates for over 5 years). I just didn't want to be slave to medication anymore and had no clue that would happen. Anyway, ended up on methadone.
182493 tn?1348056515 For the last 4 years I’ve been using nutrition—Intravenous and oral—to rebuild and repair the biochemistry pathways in the body and mind. Over four years experience —this includes heroin, and all other street drugs, alcohol, and prescription medications--has taught me that natural detox works 100 times better than detox formulated and predicated by the use of other mind altering chemicals.
Avatar f tn I'm seven weeks clean of oxycodone and still experiencing awful symptoms both mental and physical (which I feel may be some type of post acute withdrawal.) Aversion to food, nausea, dry heave spells, fatigue, insomnia, pounding heart episodes, severe anxiety attacks, mood swings, depression and diarrhea. I've been avoiding Caffiene every time I have anxiety attack episode (which is from opiate WD.
Avatar f tn she make ECG and test for thyroid and blood pressure and blood glucose .. and all the medical tests appears to be normal. this condition started about 8 monthes ago. she go to alot of doctors and take alot of medication like concor , duspatalin and omedar but there are not any improvement. sorry for my bad language.
Avatar f tn Do or did any of you have a lot of muscle tension and shaking after coming off opiates? If you did how long did it last? Is this considered part of anxiety? It seems the more I try to concentrate on trying to be productive the more I shake. If you wodering did I have this before the pain med, the answer is no.
Avatar n tn I don't see any mention of oxycodone. I have chronic back pain and use an indwelling morphine pump for pain. For "breakthrough" pain I use oxycodone (percodan without the aspirin/tylenol). I use the five-milligram dose and they are wonderful. I get about one-hundred and fifty of these a month and usually don't have too many left at the end of the Rx month. I just like the idea that there's no "junk" filler.
1506231 tn?1289716412 It is so annoying and uncomfortable sometimes I toss and turn and end up crying myself to sleep. Thanks for any help, I'm desperate!!
1171003 tn?1267075703 I have been taking Vicodin ES 325/750 for pain (although I should be taking it every night), supposed to be taking Gabapentin, but it makes me too sleepy during the day, and Oxycodone 5mg for pain days. I can't stay awake during the day, so was just prescribed Provigil 200mg, which doesn't really work. I drink 5hr energy drinks, coffee, take No-Doz, and/or sometimes Adderall XR to just make it through a day because I am so tired.
Avatar n tn Percocet is a combination of acetominophen (sp?) or tylenol, and Oxycodone. It is a pretty strong narcotic pain reliever - not nearly as strong as Morphine, Demerol, Fentanyl, Dilaudid, etc. - but a big jump from Darvon/Darvocet, or Codiene; and a little stronger than Hydrocodone (as in Vicodin).
Avatar m tn I'm at 71 hours after stopping oxycodone and I'm having a ton of anxiety. When will it end? Will it end?
Avatar f tn Hi everyone I am 16 days clean of a 210 mg oxycodone addiction and I still have heart palpitations really bad anxiety and I'm wondering when this will end? I've been on and off opiates for over 10 years and so I know that I've done a lot of damage and it's going to take some time, I just can't stand this anxiety in this feeling like I don't want to accomplish anything in life, it's very depressing afraid I'm going to relapse any advice?
Avatar n tn As I had gained a dependency to prescription pills such as Vicodin (hydrocadone) and Percaset (oxycodone) my Dr. decided that weed would be the best form of treatment. I have since stopped use of my "medication" as I have seen a submission in my pain as well as a return of my appetite. I have seen no difference in my academic performance with the exception that it is a bit more difficult to concentrate on my work and am once again easily distracted.
Avatar f tn The reason why Valium got a bad rap is the same reason why barbituates got one and why oxycodone and other drugs are street drugs and why Prozac and the SSRI drugs are massively overprescibed as is Ritalin and many anti biotics. Doctors facilitate patient drug use and abuse.
