Taking percocet and xanax together

Common Questions and Answers about Taking percocet and xanax together


Avatar f tn I've been taking subutex and xanax for about a year now. I was on percocet 30s and oxycontin 80mg but thought subutex was a good way for me to escape all the grief of withdrawing half the time. I take subutex in the morning and xanax at night usually. Then I started to mix them a little. Sometimes I felt really weird and not right plus was getting xanxious and worried. I've been to the hospital a couple times and thought I was dying.
Avatar f tn She has also taken 1 gram of Xanax. Is that safe? Can you take the both together? She is a very good friend of mine and I really just want to make sure she's going to be ok. They're typically low doses, but 2 different pills at the same time. She took the gram of Xanax about 15 minutes ago, I tried to talk her out of it, but being a recovering addict myself, I guess my advice is worthy for her. Please can someone tell me if this combination is ok?
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 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.

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 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 I was a Chef and slipped on a wet floor and have had 3 back surgeries since 1993. I've been taking percocet 10's and have been on them for the last 5 years. They are killing me and aging me quickly and I too am desperate to get off of them. I have only 3 left and I'm scared to death!!! I am terribly ashamed for letting myself get to this point. I have experienced some of these withdrawal syptoms of percocet and it isn't fun, its' miserable and painful!
1750887 tn?1313102891 btw Im a 40 year old male..with a wife and a 2 year old and a 9 year old..I have to pull it together for me I now..but I cant do this to them either...
Avatar f tn I really don't feel them, and I really don't want to take another half gram...Wow...this *****! I figured taking Xanax would be a little easier and take some of the anxiety away and calm and soothe my mind, but I don't feel them at all! Does anyone know what going on?
210982 tn?1280987495 Another one to request is a small supply of xanax or valium. These will help you with the anxiety and depression you will be facing, and hopefully allow you some sleep the first week. These are also habit forming so be careful and only get a few (like 10), that way you're not tempted to switch from one drug to another. So when you go back to him, those are the ones i'd request. Get yourself some immodium and the other ingredients suggested on the Thomas recipe too.
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.
689267 tn?1235245349 ativan(lorazepam) is very similar benzodiazepine in chemical structure and in its effects to alprazolam(xanax) and also shares the same abuse, dependence, and addiction liability. i was taking originally 6mgs a night for insomnia and panic attacks starting at the early evening and taking it up to going to bed.
147172 tn?1226761778 6 discs, several are bulging and pushing against the nerve root, I'm on various Anxiety medications (Xanax, Klonopin), always had trouble sleeping and have now been taking Ambien and have plenty of other issues I am trying to cope with in my life (depression, grief, etc)! As someone in the heath field as well as someone with chronic pain, I'm somewhat split!
Avatar n tn My concern is that I have become addicted to the percocet and I don't know how I am going to handle it when it comes time to get of the pain med after my recovery from the sergury.I feel horrible when I am not taking the percocet and I don't know if I can survive this.I just want my life back. Does anyone have some advise for me? I would surely appriciate it.
300764 tn?1193573472 Dear friend, It sounds like he is into polydrug abuse and exhibiting all the traits of true addiction. You say xanax and percocet?Wow. All street bought? Put it this way, maam, I'm a legit patient who is the victim of an overprescribing MD, but I decided on my own to do a slow controlled taper off xanax. It is highly addictive, although my pharmacy has never given me a hard time for anything.
Avatar f tn How to get off of percocet without sever withdrawing? Have any of you used suboxone to get off of pain medication? Did it work? My husband an i are addicted to percocet. I feel like without them i have no energy an feel like blah! im ready to quit NOW!!! Any advise would be gratefully appreciated.
Avatar n tn I am 31 weeks pregnant and addicted to percocet and xanax. I have been taking about 40-50mg of percocet a day! Sometimes i take about 4 1mg xanax also. I cannot stop and i am so scared my baby will be born addicted. Plus i am supposed to have 1 year sober this month. I cant tell anyone cuz everyone knows im pregnant and will think im horrible! My boyfriend thinks i am doing everything i am supposed to be doing and if the baby is born addicted i dont know what he will do!
Avatar f tn is dangerous stopping cold turkey but with opiates especially the low dose you were taking stopping cold turkey is the way to go because tapering opiates can just further your addiction and it's not needed plus you've been clean for over 48 hrs so you're almost in the clear just keep pushing you'll feel better sooner than later.
1161075 tn?1262992028 he said Percocet only goes in 10s and he put me on the highest dose of Tylenol with it and added Xanax and the Fentanyl with it and I see him in a month but I explained to him how bad the pain is and he said if it stops working or if Im just got getting relief hes either putting me in the hospital or giving me a pain pump with Fentanyl for awhile so I should be okay. I've been a pain patient for 10 years now and been on so much stuff and this is actually the first time I've been on Percocet.
Avatar f tn My son just got put on suboxone about 2 weeks ago and he is still taking xanax and somas my husband and I are at our wits end as to what to do He is not doing anymore lorcets or heroin at this time but I am so worried about him taking the the other meds on the suboxone. I am so obsessed with what he is doing I can't hardly sleep at night anymore. He still lives at home and we are still paying for his cell phone but my husband wants to turn it off.
Avatar f tn my husband was injured severly 6 years ago and went through major surgeries for the first four years, he is now well from the accident, but is addicted to hydrocodone, xanax and he also drinks daily. he has changed emotionally and of course he can't see it. he thinks at this point that it's okay. I have spoken to his doctor on three occasions, his doctor just happens to be one of his best friends and well since 2001 has prescribed his narcs.
Avatar n tn I think doctor's are prescribing percocet too freely. I had not been taking anything for of a hernia and a doctor prescribed percocet. after reading all of your comments i'm not going to start. good luck to getting off this stuff.
Avatar f tn , or are you supposed to take it daily? How often do you take the Xanax? You're on a hefty dose, and if you're taking it regularly, you're going to run into some significant issues with dependency and tolerance. When that happens, the Xanax will exacerbate any symptoms you have (ie anxiety) rather than helping them. Lastly, it goes without saying that if you have a history of addiction, REALLY both the Adderall AND the Xanax are NOT a good idea.
Avatar n tn are these drugs safe together in the dosages I mentioned above and 2.
1973988 tn?1325985488 5, but I forgot to mention that I am also taking Xanax 1mg to help the withdrawal symptoms. And I'm now experiencing constant dizzy spells. I'm worried if that is a sign of a benzo seizure? I want to get off of the percocets as soon as possible, but my pain is still very intolerable!! I just had my last surgery 1 week before Christmas and my doctor is worried that I'm cutting down too fast.
Avatar f tn And I no longer have a port in my chest, but I do in my head because too many blood vessels grow around it to remove and where the tube goes pinches a nerve and sends migranes up my skull. I really appreciate you taking the time to read and help me. My mom does know and she is trying her absolute hardest to help me. We are starting the taper.
