Taking vicodin and xanax

Common Questions and Answers about Taking vicodin and xanax


Avatar m tn there is no doubt that your body is already addicted to the xanax..it doesn't take real long..I would suggest tapering down from that..I am glad your going to the dr..how long have you been taking vicodin? Xanax w/d can be very dangerous, and although you haven't been on them long i would still try and taper..You can pm me if you'd like...I tapered off of alot of xanax...to me it sounds like you are having some mild w/ds from xanax..
Avatar m tn Since I started to wean off my Xanax addiction I quit taking the Vicodin and Tramadol, except for 1 day had bad migraine and none Imitrex pills, my insurance only covers 9 pills and paying them is more than 200 dollars. The point is that I do not feel side effects or W/D effects from quitting the Vicodin and Tramadol. It this possible? I didn't even knew Tramadol was an opiate until I joined this community.
Avatar f tn Anyhow, I was taking .25 to .50mg of xanax a day to deal with the anxiety and I have decided to stop taking those as well.. I am not sure if they were a mental crutch or if they really did halp curb the anxiety... I do have a lot of stress in my life right now and the xanax helped to take the edge off of it and let me focus on the things I need to do however, I have an addictive personality and don't want to fall into being addicted now to xanax.... my question is this....
Avatar f tn Just my experience....I stopped the vicodin cold turkey and was also on xanax 2 mlg twice daily for 15 years. With my doctors guidance I did a very slow taper and am off them as well. Definately speak with yor doctor....going off xanax especially after 20 years needs to be monitored by a doctor BUT it can be done. I feel so much better off the xanax! Good luck to you foxy!
Avatar f tn I've been taking Xanax .5 mg 1 a day for 4 to 5 months now. I was getting them off the street for my anxiety. I also was snorting vicodin 7.5 mg for 6 to 7 months 1 to 3 a day. I've been off the vicodin for 3 days now. And this is my 1st day not taking the Xanax. I don't want to get a seizure bc of not taking the Xanax. But I want to quit these pills bc I feel they r controlling me. The withdrawals suck on the vicodin. But I hope I can beat this.

1041243 tn?1375230520 but in my personal experience, thats all that vicodin does, too. vicodin makes me violently ill and i found that ibuprofen, tylenol and asprin all worked better than the vicodin...but i talked to my doc first, which is what you should do.
84562 tn?1288304383 I have Afib and I also have a prescription for Vicodin for severe back pain. My Afib is constantly noticable until about an hour after taking my Vicodin, and then the beating of my heart calms and stays on track 100% I've been wondering about the connection for a long time.
Avatar n tn I have been clean off vicodin and xanax for 2 weeks, but my urine drug test, still comes out positive. How is this so?
450052 tn?1207660274 Hi, I am in the same boat. Started back on vicodin after a 2 months break. I was taking soma and vicodin but can't get the soma anymore so the Dr. tells me to take the vicodin. I cannot take any anti inflammatory and Tylenol Arthritis just doesn't take the edge off. So here I am again on 2-3 vicodin a day. Not sure how else to manage the pain. I, too, feel like a failure as have stopped this 3 times already but the pain gets the best of me...
Avatar f tn from the vicodin or is it the Xanax? was it the Xanax too and the vicodin would mask it? Or is it still the vicodin w/d i am feeling? just curious. if this makes no sense let me know. basically just wondering if the feelings i am having are from the Xanax. Not sure when w/d start with Xanax?

Avatar f tn Im 13 wks preg and i take xanax on a daily bases and on occasions when back hurts due to car accident ill take a vicoden is this an addiction problem and will my baby be ok
Avatar n tn I still ahve anxiety, my doctor gave me Celexa which is okay, my question is, is it okay to take Xanax and Celexa together? I used to take Xanax too for panic attacks, and for now I know it will make me feel better. Does anyone know if they can be taken together? I have never been hooked on Xanax at all, so that is not a problem.
Avatar n tn i was off them just a cople weeks and then had to have a root canel so back on them for 1 more bottle.i was off for a few weeks and i was scared of withdrawal so i have been taking 1 to 1 1/2 vicodin since the 27th of sept.I have been on xanax 20 years and the vicodin did seem to give me energy...now im afraid im hooked and i stress so over it and having withdrawls that im afraid to stop it,but I need to..
Avatar n tn get some counciling now so that you will have a healthy mind when the baby is here becuase it gets much more stressful and harder with a newborn and taking vicodin will not help you to be a good mommy if you are taking it to make you feel fuzzy,
Avatar f tn Are you still taking the Xanax? Why did you switch to Klonpin? I have used both meds and did a lot of reading up on them and one thing they do say about Klonopin is that it can in some cases make your depression worst. Have you thought about asking the Dr to go back to the Xanax? Did you feel any less depressed on that drug? Either way I think you may be down bc of the withdrawls from Vicodin. Best of luck to you!
Avatar n tn Are you saying that your doctor has prescribed you the vicodin and the xanax too? If you are abusing these meds,whether they are prescribed to you by the doctor or not,then yes you and your baby could be in trouble.You need to be totally honest with your doctor about the abuse and 'possible' addiction for your babys health as well as your own.None of us here are doctors,more importantly we are not YOUR doctor.
Avatar f tn i glad this was posted. i too got myself addicted to xanax, and although i thought i was taking such a low dose (low dose in my book anyways) i continued to use it to sleep once i quit vicodin. Well, against what everyone who knew what they were talking about said, i just stop cold turkey. i was ok for maybe 2 days. But then the sleep problems & anxiety got the best of me again so i started up again.
1082697 tn?1260064616 she is trying to get me calmed down so i can off taper off the vicodin and xanax. now i hear bad things about zyprexa. i can get past the weight gain, but not the sleepiness it can cause. i am afraid to take it. i know it is an antisycotic drug or how ever it is spelled. i am just thinking about throwing out all of my pills and living with this anxiety and depression. i guess the new thing now is take this drug if an antidepressant does not work. i can hear it makes you a zombie.
Avatar n tn I recently got off Vicodin on January 2nd. It became addictive. I've been on Xanax for 10 years and I am tapering. I'm taking 1-1/2 mg. per day and I started taking Prozac at 10 mg. per day a week ago. I am experiencing racing thoughts, discomfort with my heart beating, clammy, smoky taste in my mouth after sleeping, horrible Anxiety buzz (Which begins with the racing thoughts), sore temple, tightness in head.

Avatar m tn Hi all, I had been on Xanax 2mg,Vicodin 5/500mg and Tramadol 50mg for 2 yers(Xanax and Tramadol) and 1 year(Vicodin)taking 8 to 10mg Xanax and 2 to 4 pills of tramadol and Vicodin daily. I am slowly weaning off the Xanax, I'm on day 53 and down to 6.75mg and quit cold turkey the tramadol and the vicodin 16 days ago.
Avatar m tn Ive been taking 5-6 750mg vicoden for 2 years and 1 1/2mg of xanax for about 5 yrs.. I have severe back pain and severe anxiety. I have recently noticed rapid weight loss and no apetite. Ive lost about 20lbs in a couple months and a pound daily. I am now concerned about liver problems.. history of kidney stones so i thought the pain was kidney stone related, but more now points to liver. I feel I need to stop tonight, and really scared for my health. im 26 yrs old with a family of 4.
Avatar f tn I'm 25 and 19 weeks pregnant. I have been taking xanax XR for over 2 years now and have suffered severe withdrawal symptoms every time I tried to stop taking it or ran out. I became addicted to it without realizing it and it caused me to go into convulsions 4 times. I hate taking it, especially while I'm pregnant but I don't have a choice because the withdrawals would be worse on me and the baby than if I keep taking it.
Avatar f tn Is there anyone out there with a similar story as mine? Where you were taking the same medications (vicoden, xanax and excederin) and didn't know you were pregnant and then found around 6 weeks that you were? I was not taking the vicoden and xanax everyday before I found, out just a few times. However, I was taking excederin every single day, because I suffer from migrains. Please let me know because I'm worried sick!
