Vicodin and klonopin

Common Questions and Answers about Vicodin and klonopin


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.
1407445 tn?1281318016 I think Shelli pretty much summed it all up in her answer and better I think, than I could have. lol I also take Klonopin and have muscle relaxers and I took them both. That helped tremendously with the restlessness, (mine was my whole body, not just my legs). I have a small child so bed wasn't an option for me but that is exactly where I would have been if I could have.
229538 tn?1300377767 All of a suddon im getting anxiety attacks almost always in the morning . Yes I do have an anxiety disorder . I take Lexapro and some times Klonopin at bedtime. Any kind words from whomever has been threw this would be welcome. Oh I have stopped taking any vicodin at all .
Avatar f tn Hi, I just found out I am 5 weeks. I was addicted and dependent on Vicodin for a year for two painful conditions that led me to eventually growing a high tolerance and dependent. I'm also on celexa and klonopin. My klonopin dose is low but I've been on the same dose for years. My husband and I had problems for over a year and a half to get pregnant so I am so happy but so fearful! I am currently tapering on the meds but feel anxious and hopeless.
1717759 tn?1309056248 Although, I was upfront with my p-doc about my problems in the past with vicodin and xanax and she gave me klonopin anyway. I should have done my research before taking it. I learned too little too late. My question is this: how to I come off both drugs at the same time or is that advisable? I've done extensive reading about the side effects of both. I don't want to end up in the ER by withdrawing too quickly. Any help would be appreciated.
Avatar m tn cause im so focused on withdrawls.scared of them. i was down to 1 vicodin a day and a dr. recommended i take suboxones. and i got hooked on 8mg subs. from 1 vicodin a day. guess he wanted the money. so now im back to 2 30mg oxys to 4 30mg oxys.
Avatar n tn What would you suggest were you in my position. I am currently taking Klonopin 0.5-1mg daily and up to 8 Vicodin (5mg/500mg) daily to squelch the constant pain. Obviously neither of these drugs are sustainable or preventative... Do you have any other therapudic or medicinal suggestions? Also, I am certain the Vicodin is not causing rebound headaches. Thanks.
Avatar m tn My friend that is a doctor called me in a perscrition of Ativan and said to take 1mg as needed and that I should be fine and would detox from the pain meds and xanax in a few days. Fact is, I'm really not even sure if/which one I'm craving, But I know that in the afternooons I have to take something to get rid of the jitterbugs. I have an appointment with another doctor (addictionoligist) in a few days but if anyone could offer some advice here I would surely appreciate it. Thanks!
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 m tn 8-19-13 I went on 1mg of Klonopin twice a day because I was having panic attacks for about a week. After a couple days, I felt better but it started making me irritable so the Dr. cut be back to .5mgs twice a day. About a month later I started having pain in my big toe then into my ankle. I got x-rays and was diagnosed with degenerative arthritis in my big toe joint and on 9-18-13 I started taking Meloxicam (Mobic).
Avatar f tn I would also tell you to go ahead and start taking the Klonopin twice a day, morning and night (about 8-12 hours apart) and stick to that regimen for a few weeks to see the difference. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised that once the Klonopin has had a chance to build up, your anxiety will be much better. As for your night's sleep, I wish I had a fix for that for you. Hopefully the steady dosing of the Klonopin will help with that.
Avatar n tn t need to be there. Said I would have another bad 48 hours of withdrawal and he prescribed Klonopin for anxitey and said to follow up in his office. . I am already taking 20mg of Lexapro. I went home and rested for a few days. When I take the Klonopin at night, I have horrible thoughts ( I picture the baby dead, not that I want to hurt her but I have visions ) When I take the Klonopin during the day as prescribed I fall asleep immediately.
1041953 tn?1259072690 I have a few suggestions for you that I think may help. Number one, you have to stop taking the Xanax. A couple of reasons for, it's addiction potential is tenfold that of klonopin because of it's shorter half-life. And secondly, you're engaging in Doctor Shopping for a scheduled drug. This is extremely dangerous. You can potentially do some jail time for doing this. So, stop now. You also need to come clean to the doctor prescribing you the Zoloft and Klonopin.
Avatar f tn This mite not help ur situation. But I took percocets and vicodin while I was pregnant my son came out perfectly normal no withdrawls..he was 5 wks early due to my high blood pressure an was in nicu for 2 I'm pretty surre they would have said something if he was withdrawling. He was in nicu cuz he culdnt suck swallow and breath.
Avatar m tn Is there a way to decrease the withdraw from coming off what Vicodin I have left? I have been taking anywhere drom 6 to 8 in a day 500mg, and I thought maybe if I tried going to maybe 4 a day along with my klonopin would help me come off them easier. OR is it better to just quit cold turkey and use just my Klonopin? Anyone ever do this themselves, or anyone know what would be the best way to do this at home. (I was on Darvocet prior to Vicodin, but they were recently taken off the market.
Avatar f tn Long time no talk since the other forum closed! Good to hear from you. :) Actually, I am NOT going on to klonopin. I just want off. I want to try to manage my anxiety without benzos. So, would I drop the whole .25 at once over the month or take off .125 and then two weeks later take off another .125? Mandapanda- I have been at this dose for a few months now. I have heard great things about klonopin instead of xanax.
1523184 tn?1291940756 I just got a letter from my doctor saying that a second consecutive urine test showed no vicodin in my urine, and that his office will no longer prescribe vicodin for me. I'm beside myself because I know I took my vicodin the day before the test. My new Rx was due the week after the test and I obviously didn't get my prescription. The only thing that I can possibly think of that is my fault is that I drink a tremendous amount of water every day, probably more than a gallon.
1287128 tn?1331134538 I was recently reevaluated but a Forensic Phycsitris, for PTSD and what I found out during this was that there is a differecen in panic attacks, anxiety attacks and what they call PANIC DISORDER with is what I have along with clinical depression and PTSD, I have been under going treatment for almost 2 years but guess what the ppl I have seeing were not trained to deal with my needs, to teach me ways to deal with them with my meds (which are also not right) and ways to work towards dealing with a
1699153 tn?1327039635 I just do things like hobbies and watch tv and stuff to get my mind off my depression and stuff. I know this post is kinda old so I hope things went well with being off Vicodin and hope that you have found some help and stuff. Hope you are doing ok.
Avatar n tn it started in the morning and continued until 2pm. I finally took Klonopin only,5mg and that seemed to help until it wore off. Is this normal? Sometimes I feel as though I have other issues.

Avatar n tn At first I thought I had caught the flu with severe nausea, diarrhea, and extreme muscle aches. I treated those symptoms with the occasional vicodin, and the lack of sleep with Ambien, not realizing that these meds are just temporarily reducing my symptoms. I am hurt that my doctor would put me on something so addictive, but I must take some blame for blindly following advise without looking things up. Are some people able to manage their own taper successfully.
Avatar n tn Well, dear, I'm, assuming you are due to have some kind of drug test, and are concern about passing it? Why not instead, share what you have taken that you are fearful of showing up? A drug test looks for more than narcotics, too. They tyopically look for benzos (Ativan, Klonopin, Xanax, Valium), cocaine, opiates (Vicodin, Percocet), and others. There are different kinds of drug tests. There's really no way to know until you take it.
Avatar n tn Are you prescribed the sub? If so, tell your doctor you want off? They are the best at giving you the advice you need. I agree w/girlybuff on the klonopin- wait on this one till you are off the sub. And she's right, you shouldn't be taking both together. Unless it's Clonidine? which is for blood pressure.
Avatar f tn good for you. you are doing this the right way...gettig honest is your best chance at getting clean...tell them the whole truth and be done with this nightmare...good luck and let us know how it goes.
Avatar f tn One or two Vicodin a day is a pretty low dosage so if you'd like to quit, physical withdrawal shouldn't be too painful. You can either stop cold turkey and feel under the weather and sluggish for a bit, or you can taper down by reducing the amount you take on a schedule. Whatever you decide, if you don't know why you're taking them anymore and feel they may be negatively affecting you, I think it would be a great move for you to stop taking them at all.
Avatar n tn I recently got hold of some klonopin and I am keeping them to use if I end up c/t off vicodin. I took one when I first got them just to see how well it did and it really knocked me out, which is what I was looking for, to treat the jimmy leg syndrome of w/ds. Anyway, is there a danger of addiction to these things also?
