Oxycodone and codeine together

Common Questions and Answers about Oxycodone and codeine together


Avatar f tn Now I'm no scientist but I think the good news for you is that codeine is as strong as hyrdocodone or even oxycodone, so your withdrawals shouldn't be as bad as others. Just get through it and stay clean from codeine. Look for alternate meds for pain that doesn't contain any opiates or is addicting. Trust me, lots of people know how you feel, keep reading and posting on here. You hit the jackpot coming to this site.
Avatar n tn As for the codeine, ten miligrams x 19 pills are equal to 190 mg. of codeine a day. I am on 120 of codeine and 1200 mg. of acetomenophene. [Did I spell that right?] In time the acetomenophene toxifies the liver. If taken in high doses [somewhere between 4000 and 7000] I have heard that it can do this instantly. I have tried to cut down the four T'3's a day but find myself almost impossible to live with. My blood pressure goes very high from stress.
Avatar n tn Depending on the fusion and how much of your back is getting done will determine whether or not you should go for the Hydro or Oxycodone,Tylenol 3 dont get for a fusion though,and Codeine is just as addictive as Hydro and Oxycodone if you abuse any drug it can be addictive.
Avatar f tn i have been on oxycodone for a long time and have never experienced this. you could ask for a lower dose or be put on hydrocodone instead. side effects of any medication can vary so much for each person.
Avatar f tn I get 5 mgs twice a day, and even taking them together, nothing. I am to see my pain doctor Monday and I am going to plead with him to just give me back an extra hydrocodone like I use to be on. I know they fear for the acetaminophen affects on the liver, but it is pretty much a waste of money. Does anyone have any idea why it just doesn't work?
7608252 tn?1392567964 Crazy, huh? For all of that, the doctor may as well taper her with the butalbital and codeine...and skip the Sub all together!
Avatar f tn I've always been in it for the high. I was at 120mg of oxycodone and now I'm down to 60mg and working toward 45mg which I will quit cold turkey from. And I snort it all, I have been for 2 years. I'm married and my wife does it as well and let me tell you it absolutely kills any feelings or sex drive you have! Basically what I'm saying is there are a lot of us out here who take these pills and are battling every day with then so u r not alone.
Avatar n tn With the controlled release of the med I'm taking now, things seem to be on an even keel compared to the abrupt ups and downs of the shorter acting narcotics like hydrocodone and oxycodone. As I've said time and again, all I want is a state of equilibrium in my life where everything seems to be safe and secure....and pain free! I suppose that's a lot to ask for as a human being? Somebody said above that they went fifteen years in hell before discovering a med that offered some relief.
Avatar m tn I was recently dismissed from my PM prescriber due to morphine showing up in my urine (they send it to a lab). In addition to my prescribed oxycodone and alprazolam, my UA showed positive for morphine, but not codeine. The codeine cough syrup was not prescription, you just have to show ID and sign for it. I had the flue with a hacking, unproductive cough, so I drank the entire bottle during the course of a couple of days.
Avatar m tn I have been off the buprenorphine for 8 days but I am maintaining at 40mg of oxycodone. I do have a doctor and I'm going to quit the oxycodone in a few hours. I don't smoke or drink and I eat fairly healthy. My current pain level is very low so I want to attempt to become drug free.
Avatar f tn Effects on Pregnancy and Pregnancy Outcome An association between first-trimester use of codeine and congenital heart defects has been found in three of four case–control studies (6–9). Previous reports have not shown an increase in risks of birth defects after prenatal exposure to oxycodone, propoxyphene, or meperidine (10, 11).
Avatar n tn I'm allergic to codeine and I'm looking for a stronger pain reliever that doesn't have it...I'd think it would..and of course, I could always go look it up...if you have any suggestions...
Avatar f tn Purrm3, yes that is correct. Indeed, the liver enzyme CYP2D6 is responsible for the metabolism of hydrocodone, codeine, and dihydrocodeine to their active metabolites; hydromorphone, morphine, and dihydromorphine. If a metabolite is "active" it too occupies an opioid receptor and helps reduce pain. All of these active metabolites occur in fractions, some less than 10% of the total amount of hydrocodone.
Avatar f tn THey are both way stronger than codcamol (which is panadol and codeine) and neurofen (which is ibuprofen) Codcamol and neurofen are both avail over the counter at the chemist but you should only be able to get oxycodone or hydrocodone on prescription from a doctor.. Let me know if I have this wrong tho...
Avatar n tn i have had several things during treatment that required oxycodone. they are free with it.
1684282 tn?1505701570 I am becoming somewhat frustrated with the way a lot of my colleagues practice medicine. Disenchanted, angry would be the other words that could be used. We all get ostensibly that same training and all of us are supposedly in it to help our patients. So, how come have I been getting so many letters lately on my addiction forum from desperate people unable to quit taking the tramadol pills that their own kind doctors have so freely prescribed for them?
433485 tn?1321816990 But some statements were made in that post that opiates won't help lower back pain, and I can testify, as I have taken codeine and pregabalin not together, but with one and after a while with the other, and BOTH reduce back pain. Anything that tells the nerves not to scream in pain works.
Avatar n tn i also had surgery while addicted to pain meds and had no problems, although i was 26 at the time(28 now). i was mainly addicted to oxycodone which is the drug in oxycontin. before, during and after surgery i was given pain meds like morphine, fentanyl(sp?) and more oxycodone. i had no withdrawal symptoms during my stay in the hospital or any time directly after that. that is only my experience so i'm not sure if you can apply it to your father's case or not.
Avatar n tn I have taken Vicodin a few times while pregnant, but decided that I'd better stick to what my OB gave me, but then I did my own research and found out that Tylenol w/codeine is a catagory C, and the Vicodin is a catagory B (at this stage of my pregnancy). I would love to just take the pain, but without the meds, I can't even get out of bed, which therefore means, I can't get to work.
239164 tn?1207266607 This includes drugs such as tramadol (Ultracet and Ultram) codeine (Tylenol #3, #4), Darvocet, Hydrocodone (Vicodin, Norco, Lortab and derivatives), Oxycodone (Endocet, Percocet, Oxycontin), Morphine, Demerol. Fentanyl, and Dilaudud. There are many other opiates not listed, so if you don’t see it listed, you can still use these suggestions if it’s an opiate based addiction. None of these apply to benzodiazepine based addictions. These addictions should never be dealt with by going cold turkey.
Avatar f tn What I have been doing is I have been taking tyl. #3 up to 6 a day instead of the oxycodone, and I still get withdrawls but I am doing my best to ween off of the pills all together. What can happen to my baby while i'm taking pills? I have read everything from the baby being addicted if you take pain pills the last few mths. of the pregnancy, I have read that the newborn could have birth defects, down syndrome, ADHD, and mental retardation. I honestly don't know what is true and what is not.
222369 tn?1274478235 I still see you counting the days..I know you're going to make it..and I hope the anxiety stops all together, soon. To all of the newbies..I'm posting the post below that I usually post for the people starting on this jorney. Maybe it can help some of you. I will have you all in my prayers..I still look in daily, and I hope to have more time to post, soon!!! This is a work in progress...something I've been working on off and on for the last couple of weeks.
Avatar n tn I am very up today and very positive. I really hope you are ok. Can we stick together and beat this thing. I know we can. I will check back tonight for the last time. So please please wright. God bless and thank you: John B.
Avatar n tn Once I am off the etoh and hydros I will get a liver profile - I fear I've completely damaged it. My family life and professional life has begun to suffer - I can't concentrate or retain as well. I would appreciate any constructive advice on how to get off these pills and any resources to contact. I am fully responsible for this additicion so please don't flame me or attack my character - I already know what I've done. I just want avenues of assistance here or through a pen pal.
1794671 tn?1338798991 My son is 5 now, still a fun age but I reminisce on the days when he was just learning to roll over, then crawl, and then walk. I was taking codeine during my pregnancy as I also had chronic pain during that time as well. I didn't take much of it and instead went out on short term disability part time 6 months before term and full time 3 months before term. The sciatica worsened and I could barely walk 6 months into my pregnancy.
Avatar n tn You have a tuff situation and you have to be tuff. Oxy w/booze can kill depending on amounts he drinks the combo can cause respitory arrest (stops breathing} I' ve been there got me off oxy's at least anything above 10mg, saw 80' plus. if he does not drink much thats a plus. You are right it could ruin you finacially the move out could help him see the light but talk to him he has to want to quit you can't make him quit.
Avatar n tn Hydrocodone seems to work like codeine/morphine without all the alkaloid-related side effects like stomach aches and nausea. Oxycodone seems to be hydro's "big brother." I think hydro and oxy are synhesized from thebane which in one of he subtances constituting actual opium. I have to connfess, I'd like to expereiene just once the classic "opium den" pipe smoking, like you see if you caught Sergio Leoni's move, Once upon a Time in America.
557689 tn?1225419256 My doctor had been giving me pain killers, Darvocette, oxycodone, hydrocodone, percocette and flexeril......recently she claimed that a drug test she did on me showed "Opium" in my blood,.....I have no idea how this could have happened because I have no "Opium"...didnt that go out in the early 70s?.....
Avatar n tn allopurinol (Andersen, Sonne, and Andersen, 2001) angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (Andersen, Sonne, and Andersen, 2001) antiviral agents used in acquired immunodeficiency syndrome therapy (Andersen, Sonne, and Andersen, 2001) cimetidine (Underwood and Frye, 1993) clozapine (Underwood and Frye, 1993) codeine (Andersen, Sonne, and Andersen, 2001) corticosteroids (Underwood and Frye, 1993) didanosine (Andersen, Sonne, and Andersen, 2001) doxycycline (Eland et al, 1999)
1697690 tn?1329127238 Im 21 years old and recently got clean from a 5 year oxycodone and heroin addiction. Its been 6.5 months since ive used drugs or a needle. When I quit I was doing about 150mg oxycodone, 1 gram heroin, 1 gram crack cocaine daily all IV. You are already on day 4 though, in my opinion past the hardest part. If I may ask, were you iv'ing your opiates? Because in my experience the withdrawals from iv opiate addiction are a few days shorter than snorting or taking orally.
