Common Questions and Answers about Vicodin cwe


Avatar m tn s/day Hydrocodone for about a year and a half for Disk degeneration, sciatica, and two bulged disks. Everytime the vicodin stops working with the OTC I cut the dosage down for a week or two and then it will start to work again. The problem is that I can't get beyond 1 a day. I have had six cortisone shots, all the nerves in my facet joints killed and I plan to get another round of cortisone when I can afford it. I have heard everything from this is not a problem to your a hard core addict.
1685275 tn?1312339517 I can pretty much tolerate 30 or more vicodin 5/500 a day, 20+ 10/325 Norco or 20+ 10/325 generic percs (endocet). I am not nearly as worried about the opiates as I am about the acetaminophen. I know I am poisoning my liver and kidneys and body in general. I am a person diagnosed with clinical depression, so I take cymbalta as well - I believe the opiates are escalating my depression as the Cymbalta provides no relief for the depression any more.
Avatar n tn Maybe in your life you were able to make the distinction between the two and chose accordingly, but if you chose CWE, you did nothing to heal yourself from addiction. It is the hydrocodone in these pills that is addictive, not the APAP, and to suggest that people are wrong for looking down upon people posting ADDICTIVE/ILLEGAL behavior as a way to minimize negative side effects is just crazy.
Avatar m tn my drinking declined with opiate use , and i actually at one point thought i could be a sosial drinker, but in the end found out i was wrong, the liver is an amazing organ and the only one that can repair itself, but it can only take so much and builds up scar tissur and that is cirrosis, I was so freaked out about my high liver enzymes that i would CWE my hydro and quantify it to 40 mgs. per ,l. and for awhile i thought that was the answer, but again i was wrong.
Avatar f tn Before the pain in my RUQ I ate the pills as they were. After the pain I started performing CWE on every dose. Before the CWE my dose was limited to 4000mgs of APAP. After the CWE I would dose approx. 35 mgs of oxy at once and then intervals of 12.5 throughout the day. The dosing for hydrocodone was slightly more.
Avatar f tn how can u snort tylenol (APAP) it is NOT water soluable,(thats why CWE works so well), it will f*&^ u up , all kinds of problems, i know ppl get away with it for awhile but they dont know the damage they are causing. I beleive in harm reduction, this forum doesn't. I think they believe it promotes, but the fact is its better to have the knowledge , so that when a person is ready to stop drug abuse, they still have enough liver left to live.
1761389 tn?1313228117 right now it takes me 30 vicodin at once to get high (i CWE so no liver failure) even at 30 pills i dont nod off or any off the stuff i love about opiates. im really upset i cant get high off pills anymore cuz i lost the heroin connect so now i can only afford to get high off of vicodin. pills are way too expensive and i can only afford to get high like once a month off em. yeah i dont do drugs often now that i dont sell. i feel like an addict without any resources to actually be a real addict.
Avatar f tn My doctor prescribed me vicodin for my migraines... has anyone else been prescribed vicodin while pregnant??
12103503 tn?1423448886 I have severe back pain and my doctor has given me vicodin. She said it was safe to take while pregnant. Have any of you taken it while pregnant?
Avatar n tn How can a positive result for Vicodin be positive when I know I have not taken it?
Avatar m tn I am currently taking vicodin 7.5 750 Mg for torn muscles in my shoulder. I usually take one or two or occasionally three tablets through the day. It says on the bottle may cause drowsiness but they seem to have the opposite effect on me they make me hyper. So i have found when i get home the only way i can sleep is to have a couple of beers to calm me down. I work second shift so if i don't drink any i will be up all night not getting any sleep.
Avatar f tn I too have been addicted to vicodin for the past two years. i am weeks away from having my second child, the ob said it was okay to use but never really said how many. My ob said the baby shouldnt be born with any addiction that it is very very rare and they have people taking high doses of stronger narcs like methadone and are pregnant. i have to take in the am when i get up as my neck hurts the worst when i try to sleep at night.
4381292 tn?1355701521 When i was in the hospital at 26 weeks with siatica, my ob gave me vicodin. I was also on vicodin while pregnant with my daughter after a car accident. I wouldnt take unless ob prescribes as there are many different doses. Im sure (same with even tylenol) it can be bad.
Avatar f tn so my head was hurting really bad at work and i didnt have my medicine so my friend gave me a tylenol.. well i started to feel weird and she realized she gave me a vicodin!! im almost 33 weeks my question is will that show up when my baby is born like will they take him or question me about it?!?! im freaking out..
Avatar n tn I know I am now dependent on vicodin. I felt this way once before after knee surgery, but just tapered off. I also quit smoking cold turkey so I am fairly motivated to go the course. After a second knee surgury this year, I am having trouble getting off the 375 miligarms dose 3 x a day. Stopping for a day results in chills at feet and hands, no sleep, and increased emotional pressure to just pop one. That is especially true at night.
Avatar f tn does anyone know how long vicodin stays in your system 4?ive been tappering 4 about a is my first day with nothing.i thought i wouldnt feel as bad because i tapered but i def do feel it.couldnt sleep at all last night.sweating and rls.does anyone know how long this will last?i only was taking about 20 mg a day.then tappered to 5mg for a nothing why are the withdrawls still so bad?
Avatar f tn I have been taking 5-6 Vicodin, 5-6 Phenergan, 5-6 Vistiril and sometimes 1-2 Elavil every day for more than a year for pain and nausea. I guess I am just confused because I don't feel addicted to them because they help me too much. When i dont take them I am in way too much pain to function. My question is that I am supposed to be having surgery so the pain will stop but will i still feel the need to take all these meds?
Avatar n tn I was in a motorcycle accident a year ago. I have been taking Vicodin ever since, now I am up to 8 to 10 a day. I don't need them anymore for pain, I am just taking them to be taking them. Well I stopped taking them three days ago. Legs hurt, arms and back are sore, headaches and I just started with diherria. I have been taking Aleve to help with the soreness but they don't seem to be working very well. How long will I be feeling like this.
Avatar n tn My husband has been taking vicodin for pain for 4 years since he had a hip replacement. He has changed tremendouly, VERY negative, explosive, reads the news paper, as usual, for cover to cover and TALKS about all the bad things. He is never happy unless he's drunk. I think he has a serious problem and he doesn't. How can I help him see what he has become???????
Avatar n tn 5 mg vicodin every 4 hours around the clock, and more if she can get her hands on it....she is a new dialysis patient, has chronic neck pain (degeneration), and just this week she entered a nursing home for rehabilitation (our suggestion). Long story short, she is 70, a recovered alcoholic (dry 15 yrs.) and during that time she also had been addicted to prescription drugs (vicodin, librium).
Avatar f tn I have been taking vicodin 7.5/750 for several months and all the tylonel is starting to upset my stomach. Does anyone know the different strengths of vicodin so I can try something different?
Avatar m tn I have been on vicodin for 1 year and want to stop. My psychological addiction is the worst. What can I do?
