Avatar m tn Day 7 cold turkey. Can't sleep. Thinking of taking pills. How do I hold it together. How do I get some sleep. How long will this insomnia last?
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.
Avatar f tn i think i understand why michael jackson took what he took...he was probably not sleeping either but he was not 85 but we really need help and advice so thanks.
Avatar f tn My dentist, along with two other scripts, wrote me one for vicodin, a small script..only 24 pills. I went to the pharmacy and dropped off the two other scripts and NOT the one for the vicodin although I really wanted to. I am 20 days clean of vicodin and realize that it would not be a good idea to fill it but I guess my question is if I did take them over a few day period which I think I can, would I go through any w/d after? I know my best bet is to just stay away and not fill it.
4768456 tn?1358921474 She take so many pills a day, but she take nerve pills as well. She mixes pills and over medicates. I do not wanna end up like that. So I need help? How can I prevent myself from becoming worse than I am. I know I need them now for pain, but what do I do when the day comes when I don't need them anymore, but my body tells me I do or I will have withdrawals. Any advice would be helpful and appreciated. My life is hard enough without adding this too. Oy.
Avatar f tn on Tues and looking forward to going because as I have read on this forum the vicodin is just a bandaide for underlying emtions not delt with. I really wanted vicodin my first two night and cried and asked my husband for just one dose (I also at the time had a really bad flu not the w/d flu and dealing with my heel spur, miserable). He told me no and I was truly in despair. Thank God for him. The first three days were the hardest so far.
9193583 tn?1404491282 I'm starting day one off of pain meds tomorrow I couldn't get anybody to watch my kids so I will be taking care of them while I withdrawal this is my second attempt of doing this and I'm %100 sure I can do it this time I can't keep taking vicodin it's ruining my life a feel like such a horrible mother idk how I let it get this bad I've been taking 10 mg.
Avatar n tn If you can take the vicodin as prescribed and its the only thing that gives you relief ? Sometimes it is nessesary for quality of life. Just make sure you keep it in check. As we all know it is so easy to get out of control with them.

Avatar m tn I agree with Vickie. You seem to understand that alcohol and Vicodin are bad for your liver, but I'm not sure you understand that the Tylenol in the Vicodin combined with the alcohol is lethal. It's too late to try to taper down on things. This situation needs to be addressed immediately. You are abusing both alcohol and Vicodin. Just because you've read posts where others take more pills or drink more alcohol doesn't change your situation.
Avatar f tn I had an emergency dental visit today for a tooth that is absessed (sp?) and my dentist gave me a prescription for vicodin..a very small script..24 pills. I did take the script but have NOT dropped it off at the pharmacy with the other two scripts he gave me. I am 20 days clean off vicodin and I know that there is no way in hell that I should fill it but my question is if I were to fill it and only take it for my tooth over a few day period would I go through w/d again???
Avatar f tn I haven't taken sleeping pills but I have taken 2 tylenols and bedtime chamomile tea on nights where I'm in really bad pain and can't sleep. My doctor said that was ok. I take the tylenols first and wait 20 to take the tea :) it helps me.
Avatar n tn my mom takes the same dose and has for years and she can still fall asleep with the one pill. i am taking upwards of 30 mg. at night and want to go down to 10 mg. see my mom gets a little loopy and i have to put her to bed because she can barely keep her eyes open and she mumbles things, which i've read are all normal.but for me this doesn't happen. i don't know what i need to do to achieve these results with only 10 mg. of ambien.
139792 tn?1498585650 Since long I am taking sleeping pills, xynex 1 mg and Ambien 5 mg. Now i had to add antihistamine Livicitrezine for itching problem. This drug has central action. As i had to go twice or thrice to bath room, my sleep is always distrurbed. I am not having prostate or bladder problem. I am having disturbed sleep and in addition i dream deeply. Many a time it takes a while to know whether it is a dream or it is a reality.
1336659 tn?1275890125 So my question.... Have any of you gone down the road of sleeping pills? Do they work? Do I even go ahead and give these to him????? Thanks in advance for your help. Jackie.
Avatar f tn Unison and benadryl are both good for sleeping... They are both very safe and actually both used in pregnancy to help reduce morning sickness as well.
5061022 tn?1363018223 Anyone else dealing with an addiction to sleeping pills? The doctors have put me on any and every kind of sleeping pill....the only thing that worked was ambien xr but now thats not even working so I am taking a store bought sleeping pill, ambien and clonazapam all at once...I mix it up each night but I am taking way more than I should or that is prescribed. I can't sleep well without them tho but I can't really sleep with them either since they don't work well anymore....
Avatar f tn I've been going through a really rough time and I feel myself falling into depression. I cant sleep and its not due to the pregnancy. I'm use to always sleeping with someone and I dont get to sleep with them anymore. Do u think a dr would prescribe me something? I'm so tired!
