Recreational vicodin use

Common Questions and Answers about Recreational vicodin use


Avatar n tn I told my doctor once that I took vicodin before for my migrains that I have been getting and it really helped. I asked my doctor what to do about my migrains because I have tried everything. I get them from my anxiety disorder. NOthing seemds to be working. So I guess yeah it was kinda recreational use.
Avatar f tn I am, or should I say was, a recreational drug user. In the last two months I smoked pot regularly and took approx. 3 vicodin 10mg and 1 percocet 10mg to help with back pain from a car accident. I don't regularly use pain meds and am far from addicted, I am just so worried that those couple pills hurt my little one. :( help!
Avatar m tn I found this sight researching how to detox from Vicodin. I'm impressed! I take Vicodin every day and really want to stop. I'm embarrassed to admit that it has a hold on me as I have convinced myself that I can stop any time and that I'm in control of my 'recreational' drug use. When I think about getting through work tomorrow without it or not using it to help me 'stuff' my issues I feel a paralyzing fear and don't know if I even can or want to do it.
Avatar f tn An additional concern I have is that I have put myself at risk because of recreational use of Vicodin, which has gone on for about 2 yrs. While I have never taken more than a small dosage on a given day (never more than 500mg in a day and most often about 250mg), my usage has been fairly consistent usually about twice a week. Would a tinnitus resulting from Vicodin use be more likely to result in strictly tinnitus, without the hearing loss? Thanks everyone. I really appreciate any input.
Avatar m tn I was only on Zoloft for a month. I stopped cold turkey because I didn't like how they suppressed my real emotions. It wasn't a problem stopping cold turkey for me. I'm only temporarily using Tramadol to help with my Vicodin withdrawal because I stopped it cold turkey and I'm having very uncomfortable chills as a result and the tramadol is helping a lot. I'm only going to be using Tramadol for a few more days until my body recovers from not having any Vicodin.
Avatar f tn The vicodin will help but its BC it too is an opiate. Definitely use them with caution BC u will withdraw more when u stop them. I'm tapering due to work n its hard but I'm hanging in here. Good luck n stay posting. Lots of people on here that will support you.
Avatar n tn Wow as I read your post I had shivers go down my spine. Marry me but only if I can have my Coke? Sweetie you need to run as fast as you possibly can and now!! Listen I understand that you love this man and I'm sure you want to believe that your love can heal him or make him change but it WON'T happen. I'm a drug addict and let me explain how this works. When I was using I would do whatever it took in order to get my drug.
Avatar m tn Otherwise all drugs are krap to me, recreational use? What is that????????? I often thought I could use recreationally, trust me I was wrong. When in doubt, go without!!
Avatar n tn I have no desire to take them for recreational purposes at all. I just want to make sure Im not going to get dragged through withdrawals again. I was only prescribed 10 5/325 Vicodin and im just looking for reassurance that im not going to be put through hell again if i need to take a couple for pain over the course of a few days.

If you can DO NOT SMOKE ANYTHING!!!!!! This is an important question. Some research studies have shown that some women who use recreational drugs during pregnancy use marijuana, thinking that it won't harm the fetus as much as, harder, or more than other recreational drugs.
Avatar m tn s marijuana use is not deemed excessive and does not interfere with daily function, subject must be instructed to discontinue any current use of recreational marijuana prior to entry into study and throughout the study period
Avatar f tn Dont get discouraged. As I mentioned being prepared is part of the battle. Also if this drug use is recreational you will need to deal with that problem too. If you want a detailed account on the withdrawals from day to day someone will let you no. Just make another posting asking for detailed withdrawal symptons.
229538 tn?1300377767 I was reading that, my heart rate increased just like the old days!! Hydros were my doc, got started on them when my first PA prescribed them for pain WITH REFILLS. Then yrs later another PA, then lastly my back was almost like I was having a panic attack.....and then realized , hey Connie....YOU"RE CLEAN....YAYYYY" No worries... Thanks for posting this, Jimmy.
Avatar f tn I am determined to break free from this horrible addiction to vicodin that I have been struggling with for about 2 years. I have taken 5-7 pills a day, various strengths, for recreational use. Well, I stopped getting high from it a while ago & now I am living in a constant state of withdrawal. I am taking more and more and falling into a deeper & deeper depression. I need to stop. Can anyone tell me how long I can expect to feel W/D symptoms from vicodin.
Avatar f tn Hi All, I have found great help in reading all your posts and want to say thanks. I have always like taking vicodin as a recreational drug (like when out drinking on a weekend and a friend hands me one); however, I had a bad accident 1 1/2 ago and have been on them ever since. I take 1 a day during the week...But on weekends, I find myself taking 2 or 3 a day. I know deep down inside I do not need them anymore for the pain. If I do not take one, I start sneezing constantly and can't stop.
Avatar f tn Does oxycontin as recreational use exhibit symptoms of indifference and apathy and unconcern over everyday obligations and responsibilities which prior to use were contradictory to the persons character. In other words a complete change of personally untecogisable by loved ones?
Avatar m tn I kicked a mild (4 month?) addiction, it's been about 3 days since I've had any. I was taking up to 90mgs per day (3 Morn, 3 Afternoon, 3 Night) and went down to 60mg a day for a week, then I went a full day without them Day 1, 30 mg Day 2, full day without them Day 3, 30 mg Day 4, and then days 5, 6, 7 I've had 0. I feel like I'm back to normal. Sleep is back, no anxiety, no RLS, no cravings.
Avatar n tn Did your doctor prescribe it to you for this? If not, STOP right now...'experimenting' with prescription medications, which are extremely addictive can NEVER have good outcomes.
Avatar n tn To joke about some one considering taking cocaine for recreational use who has had three bypass surgeries and is taking blood thinners is just a little reckless. Takes all kinds I guess........................
606482 tn?1220540197 I have been using vicodin for 4 years. I have tried to stop,been to detox,NA nothing seems to be helping. I started off taking them for back pain and then became addicted. I cannot seem to stop thinking about them,and try everything to get them when I run out. It has pushed my spouse away and I want to stop but its always on my mind. I currently take about 5 daily and I am 7 months pregnant.
Avatar f tn Hey ya'll it's snowflake and I have a quick question, I have been taking Vicodin 60 mgs a day for5 days due to surgery on my hand.
Avatar f tn He wants me to take one Vicodin with one Tramadol for a week, then drop one Vicodin the next week, two the next week and the last the following week. I plan on not staying on the Tramadol and just using it to get off of the Vicodin, then just anti-inflammatorys.
