Taking hydrocodone with xanax

Common Questions and Answers about Taking hydrocodone with xanax


Avatar m tn Bad depression the kind where you need someone to sit with you for safety. Not taking hydrocodone is extremely difficult because with out it I am in 8-10 on the pain scale. I have had 6 spinal surgeries and I have no hope for any other surgery. I use meditation to get through the pain. Some days its just PAIN and nothing works. I am only66 I am wondering how hydrocodone works on my depression?
Avatar f tn you can not stop taking Xanax suddenly you can have a seizure. Please call your doctor and be honest with him. You are taking a few medications which mean, you need help weaning off. PLEASE call your doctor. We understand that you need your life back, and that your kids and husband need you, but please do it the right way. This is your life!! Keep us posted. Will include you in my prayers.
Avatar n tn I have been taking hydrocodone for 4 years, was on 10mgs per day until about a year ago, am now taking 25 to 30 mgs. a day. I want OFF!!! Can I taper? Are withdrawals bad?

974989 tn?1248225878 Hydrocodone and xanax both in very high doses. Hydrocodone is over 200mg. per day and xanax is at least 5 mg before bed but the 5 mg does not even phase me anymore. I feel like I could take 8 and then feel the high. 5 just gets me by as well as the 200+mg of the hydrocodone. Someone please help me! I am lost! I'm the best mommy in the world, my kids have it all. They have love, security and every toy and game a child could ever ask for.
Avatar m tn Hydrocodone does cause mood changes, maybe for the better for you. If you are taking hydrocodone, then there is no need to take Alieve. Hydrocodone can act as both pain reliever and as mood elevator for you. However, since I cannot examine you, nor do I know your medical history well, it would be best to consult your treating doctor before making nay changes. Take care!
Avatar f tn You need to talk to whoever prescribed you Xanax and ask them about other Anxiety or Depression meds that can be taken with your opioids that are legal to take with them!
Avatar f tn yes i was totally off xanax only taking the hydro,i am terrified of the xanax but have taken 4 in 6 days to help with anxiety but ia am so afraid of the xanax i really don't want to take it it is only 0.
Avatar m tn I have been taking Ambien 10 mg per evening for years and in take xanax only sparingly. Recently, i've had rotator cuff surgery. I was prescribed hydrocodone 7.5 mg every four hours. I decided to reduce the ambien to 5 mg due to the interaction. I found it virtually impossible to sleep in a recliner as they have suggested (due to the sling).and then began taking 7.5 mg.
Avatar f tn I believe any of these drugs you have to taper off with these meds. Even Hydrocodone should have been tapered. If Xanax works for you thats fine but if you take it everyday you can become addicted so be sure to take it under Drs. supervision. It really is only for short term due to addiction tendency. SSRI s are the only med that works for both anxiety and depression for me.
Avatar n tn ve been taking hydrocodone or percoet for the last 3 years and also take xanax and I just wanted to know is this going to hurt my baby? I do not want to go through a miscarriage again and I want this baby so bad... My OBGYN says its fine to take them in moderation and I'm just not sure if thats okay? Ive went without taking them and ended up in the hospital because it was so bad, not from withdraws just them pain...Please reassure me this is okay....
Avatar m tn ve been seeing a psychologist, which helps a little, and have been taking Xanax as needed. My Xanax use has turned into taking one every night so I can sleep. I've also been taking the full dosage of Hydrocodone (4 pills 5/500) per day for my herniated disk. I can't deny I like the way it makes me feel, but I do need something to relieve my back pain and OTC doesn't work for me. I really want to know if the Xanax or the hydrocodone use could be causing my panic attacks to get worse.
Avatar n tn Hi. I took,my last 4 hydrocodone 7.5/325 last Wednesday. I had been taking 4 at night and 1 to 2 during the day for 6 months or more. I have had a hard time and have been following the recipes on this site but I am struggling with the restlessness. You know.... the crawling out of the skin feeling. I have Xanax but it does not seem to help. I take a half of a .5 (.25) a couple times a day but it is not helping. I am going out of my mind with the restlessness.
Avatar n tn I have been prescribed Xanax and Hydrocodone to cope with the pain of an upcoming medical procedure - my prescription says "as needed" but I only have 2 x 1mg of Xanax and 2 x 325mg acetominophen/ oxycodone pills so 4 pills total. I'm thinking of taking all 4 (2 of each) simultaneously so I'm essentially "out of it" during the 5 minutes that the procedure will last - is this a safe dosage for an otherwise healthy adult male on no other meds ?
Avatar f tn Seven months of the highest hydrocodone dose and taking 2 every 4-5 hours for rotator cuff and bone shaving (cuff was removed and reattached...after 3 months of walking around with a broken arm that had grown back crooked). Dr. Lowered dose to 7.5/425 -40 per week...for 2 wk...then to 5 mg...40 per week. I took none for 2 days and wd symptoms were so severe that I have taken 5 mg several times a day for over a week. Must be able to work.
Avatar f tn I hope by this time you have called your physician or consulted with your pharmacist on taking the two at the same time. I take diazepam (similar to xanax) and hydrocodone together under my direction of my physician. If fact she insists that I take them together when my pain becomes severe. One potentiates the other. My diazepam is prescribed for muscle spasms not anxiety. It is a medication that accomplishes both as I would xanax would also do to some degree.
Avatar m tn But as I type I am having a panic attack because I never knew xanax and hydrocodone was a deadly combination. I am a hypochondriac and am so scared now that I am going to die taking these together. I can't take any time off from work. I am scared should I just cold turkey again now or taper or wait to the summer when I have vacation.I am scared I feel as if I can't breathe why did I let this happen to me.
Avatar f tn Okay..for the past almost 2 years ive been taking hydrocodone, it got up to 6 to 8 pills a day..20mgs at a time, okay, about 5 days ago i went down to 40mgs a day for 4 days and the past two days i went down to 20 mgs a day...my last dose was this morning, i dont have anymore, i want to QUIT.....i take klonopin for anxiety, i have lyrica for anxiety.. i also have a few amptitriptiline's and some tramadol....can anyone tell me if that pretty fast taper will help with the withdrawels...
Avatar f tn I have been taking Hydrocodone for about 5 years now. Started with 2-3 a day and stopped at 16-18 a day. I have cut down to 4-6 a day and am on the 3rd day. I have been soooo nauseated and had a general feeling of discomfort since then. I don't know what to do...I am taking Phenergan for nausea and half of a 0.25mg Xanax for anxiety. The Xanax seems to help but I don't know how much longer this will last. When will I start to improve? I don't really have any cravings for the pills.
Avatar n tn Here’s a little history. In November of 2018 I quit taking hydrocodone (first was 10/325 which made me nauseous, then lowered to 7.5/325, then down to 5/325) as the first of many drugs my drs had me on. I felt like I was dying, my body was shutting down. Scary stuff. I was mostly on psych meds. Took a year to successfully get off all the psych meds which was hell. I started getting neuropathy due to my brain and nerves readjusting. My PCP has been wonderful and supportive in helping me.
Avatar m tn Hey Everyone, Please excuse me if these ae stupid questions but at the beginning of the Thomas Recipe it states, "If you can't take time off to detox, I recommend you follow a taper regimen using your drug of choice or suitable alternate -- the slower the taper, the better." He is obviously speaking of hydrocodone....right? Why would you taper off of an alternate if the drug of choice was hydrocodone? Is he speaking of any opiate?
Avatar m tn For fibromyalgia I also take xanax and hydrocodone. Things were at least okay, with pain levels and fibro manifestations to deal with, but nothing like this hell. At first, I reached for anti-dizziness meds, but they aren't really much help, plus they swell my prostate for which I have had two operations for enlargement already.
Avatar m tn This turned into more anxiety starting around dark because I knew what I would be faced with at bed time. I was told it could be the hydrocodone so I stopped 10 days ago. I was given .5mg xanax and 10 mg ambien. The panic or anxiety has prettymuch gone but I still am not sleeping listening to a sleep / meditation cd 2-3 times a night I NEED SOME RELIEF.
984658 tn?1248808740 Hello all... I am now on my second day of coming off hydrocodone 10/325. I was taking anywhere from 10 to 15 a day and absolutely had to have them! I would wake up and immeadiately chew 4 of them just to wake up! I chewed them so they would get into my system much faster.... I have read many answers on this forum and some have been very helpful. I don't know the best way to detox from home. I do not have any med insurance and have been taking these little jewels for about 1 year.
Avatar f tn The only thing I want to tell you is that I am going thru withdrawals now myself but not Xanax. Hydrocodone and tramadol myself for over 5 years. I wish us both luck. Godspeed.
Avatar f tn I am new to this forum. I am trying to get off the hydro now. I have a partial stomach and digestive disorder. I really got dependent on it to where I never felt the pain because I continued to take it so I wouldn't feel any. I was taking liquid and tabs. with xanax, ambien. I can't believe how much I was taking . It all stemmed from having a gastrectomy and other stomach surgery. My one dr.
Avatar f tn You are taking way too much to quit ct all at once. It would be possible with the hydrocodone and tramodol...but not with the xanax too. Especially with the amount you are taking. IT'S NOT SAFE! You need to go to the doctor or even the er(like hangetsu said) before it gets too bad. Trust me and anyone else who knows...benzo withdrawl is HELL when you quit CT. I did it...but it was very hard. And I pushed the boundary with my life cause I wanted to be done with them so bad...
Avatar f tn can you tell me how much you have been taking a day of the xanax you have not been on t to terribly long I am wondering about your dose with xanax there is the possibility of seizures when you cold trky . time wise you should be ok but I don't know how much you have been taking a day. we are all here to help you .you will get threw this.
Avatar n tn Then I started taking 16 to 18 hydrocodone 7.5 mg. or Norco 10 mg. plus 6-10 beers per day for 6 months. Then I started taking only Norco 10 mg. plus my 6-10 beers per day for 4 months. For 3 months I was taking 20+ Norco plus my 6 to 10 beers and 2 to 3 Xanax (2 mg). I started tapering off about 2 months ago and now I am down to 2-4 Norco, 1-2 beers and 2 Xanax. I have been feeling horrible!!!!
Avatar m tn Right now, all I want to do is get off the HydroCodone. I will just have to deal with the pain because I hate taking all these medications which are a necessary evil. Is there anyone out there with answers. By the way, I am a divorced female 69 years of age who, otherwise, is extremely happy with life.
