Common Questions and Answers about Taking percocet and xanax


Avatar f tn She had a consistent cough and then had her lung drained. When that happened she was given percocet which she was taking about 6 a day and then reduced it down to an average of 3 to 4 a day. This she took along with one or two xanax at night.
Avatar f tn It is doubtful. If you are taking as directed, for the reasons it was prescribed, there is probably no problem. Addiction is the abuse of the meds. By using for other reasons, or taking more than prescribed, etc.
Avatar f tn If so what and how much?I definitly wouldn't recommended it again.My doc put me on xanax and percocet at the same time before but she told me i had to be careful with it.The xanax didn't help me much though so i took myself off of it.
Avatar n tn My question is simple. Can xanax and norcos help my husband kick heroin? He doesnt want methadone. So will those pills help him or make it harder for him to kick?
Avatar n tn I went through withdrawals from Vicoden ES 4 weeks ago with the help of Xanax. Now, I am still taking 2mgs at night and maybe one more, if things get bad during the day. What are the withdrawals like? After withdrawals from codiene, I dread anymore withdrawals. My therapist seems to think that I can stay on Xanax for ever, but I don't like taking pills anymore. I want off of everything. What should I expect when cutting down?
Avatar m tn Hello Ive been taking 20 percocet a day now for 16days. I started taking them because of a herniated disk! I am not going to take anymore! How long will my withdrawls last? Also I take Xanax and Valium for really bad anxiety, will the xanax and valium help witht the withdrawl symptoms???
Avatar f tn I am on day 9 without taking any Percs - but I've made a terrible mistake in taking Ambien, Valium or Xanax to help me sleep. I was prescribed Valium 30 years ago for jumpy legs at night and they helped. I stopped taking the Valium and relied on 1 or half of 1 Perc to help me sleep. Ambien does nothing for me. Xanax seemed to help a little but nothing like the small dose of Perc.
539990 tn?1219478355 I have followed the thomas recipe before and am using xanax. Can I take a soma 350 at nite to sleep for insomnia? Thanks so much?
Avatar n tn I would suggest keep taking the Phenergan because thats what I have been taking also, well Promethazine, its the same thing!! and also I have been taking Xanax for sleep and anxiety. My doc prescribed me Clonidine for the withdrawals, its been working OK but not the best. We just need to get through a rough couple days/weeks and everything will be okay physically. Mentally might take a little longer.
Avatar f tn I have built up a tolerance and have now stopped taking them. I will be reverting back to motrin for anymore needed pain meds. Being this will be the first full day of no percs, I am a little stressed out of how I will feel. I attempted to try last weekend and broke into cold sweats the first day. I took my last pill yesterday about 1:30pm. My belly is already starting to hurt. Can anyone give my some advice on what all to expect and if it should be a horrible thing for me.
Avatar f tn Ive been taking percocet on n off for 5 years. More on than off. I use to subsitite with norco, 10mg when id run put pf my 30 month supply of 120 after 2 weeks. I try to taper, and it helps. I recently went up to 6 a day of 10/325. O have 3 left with one ready to inhale for the am. I am coming out of a drug imduced psychosis episode. I've gotten them before, but this was the worst. Im taking 2 mg xanax which has brought me back almost 99%.

Avatar n tn Well my neck is feeling much better but I stopped taking the pills Sunday and I have no been able to sleep at all.....My legs will not stop moving and I am tired but I can not sleep...I refuse to take any more pills to sleep but I have slept maybe an hour the past two days and still working does anyone have any other advice...
Avatar n tn Listen, I just drank and took 1 1/2 perc's thursday night. Drank from 10 to about 130 am then took these pill's out of stupidity. DO NOT DO IT. I woke up at 140 in the afternoon the next day with a sore right hand, bloody left knee, and no recollection of anything past 215. My mom the next day told me there was dintymoore beef stew slopped on the stove and counter that i supposedly had cooked while belligerent.
Avatar f tn Is it safe and will it help to take some xanax while tappering down? 4. For someone taking 60mg of perks a day, how long should the tappering be for? I have a feeling the two times I tried I went to fast. 5. I also see a shrink for depression and have been on antidepressants for years, effexor xr low dose, should I tell my shrink about this addiction to percocet? could she prescribe the suboxone? 6.
Avatar f tn I am now down to only 24 pills and can't get a script for 8 days. Bleck. I started tapering yesterday. I am now only taking 2 and one half per day. Heart palpitations, restless leg syndrome, chills, sleeplessness have all started. I know I am doing the right thing by tapering way back. Any advice?? The winter is the worst time for my head pain and the pain associated with the cold is unbearable. Taking only 2 today has done nothing for the pain and I feel like crap.
Avatar f tn Your relationship with the pain clinic should be such that if your meds aren't covering your pain, you call them and they figure out what to do. Also, by taking more percocet than prescribed you are at risk of taking too much acetaminophen as percocet contains Tylenol. If you then take other things with acetaminophen, you can easily go over the daily recommended safe dose. I hope you can find some doctors that can give you the treatment you need.
Avatar f tn Any pills period. I had an old prescription of percocet and I've been taking it. About 5-15mg a day for about a month. I of course have done a ton of research on it and know the risks which is why I took so little and am out anyways. I work 9 hours a day with children and I have to sit in a rocking chair many times because my legs hurt so bad. I have read on these sites to tell your doctor in case baby withdraws or somethng happens.
1070524 tn?1257034109 Ok, get your boxing gloves on because you are in for the fight of your life~~to save your life~~ 5 days is a good start. The worst part will prob be the first 3-4 days. Now xanax and seraquel I do not know about some use it some dont. We did not. Just be careful because remember we are addicts. A lot of people on here say valaren root is a good help for sleep.
Avatar n tn I could just start crying as I read your post. A quick backround- I started taking vicodin for a broken left foot. Soon the vicodin became uneffective(did not produce the high that my brain craved) and so, I went to percs. With or without pain I found myself taking the pills because the high was amazing. I would never take more than 25mg orally a day and so I thought it was no big deal. 2.5 months later(1.5 weeks ago) I had my gall bladder taken out and of course was perscribed more percs.
Avatar n tn There is no way she could take all that percocet or oxycodone the generic name, and get up and work all day without taking more during the day. Otherwise she would start going into withdrawal. The signs are constant yawning, goose bumps on flesh, tears coming from the eyes and chronic fatigue, lastly constant diarrhea. I think your wife definitely has a problem.
Avatar n tn but i didnt do coke that night i took the vicodans and i loved the warm feeling that came over me and still i had energy so I went back to the dentist and lord knows he definatly found lots of work to do on me so it was see him get a script and thats how it went for awhile until i got pregnant with baby # 2 and i stopped everything how i have no idear i guess it was cause my baby didnt ask to be here i put her here so i refused to hurt her in anyway and when i gave birth i needed a emergancy c-
Avatar n tn I am 34 weeks pregnant and have been prescribed by my ob/gyn Percocet and Xanax throughout my pregnancy and they said that the baby may be born addicted, however, I wasnt told that she may be addicted until recently and I'm very very upset. I have a herniated disc and a terrible history of panic and anxiety and this is why I'm on the medication and have been for a couple years. I also have a 1 year old and I was taking Lortab during that pregnancy but she never went through any withdraws.
Avatar n tn Take it from me, you don't want to do it. During my first pregnancy I abused xanax off and on and by the grace of God my daughter came out okay. I'm pregnant again, and only had one slip because I just couldn't go through that guilt again. Pregnancy is hard enough...you don't not want to make it worse. When I found out I was pregnant with my second child I got a therapist immediately. That helped immensely...more than you can imagine.
Avatar f tn Alcohol, an occasional Xanax and Vicodin. Like you, I got sick and tired of being sick and tired. I never want to go through that again. I'm powerless over drugs and alcohol and they make my life unmanageable. Good luck to you Angie, and keep posting, letting us know how you're doing or if you have any questions.
