Vicodin dosage for adults

Common Questions and Answers about Vicodin dosage for adults


Avatar n tn At first I was taking 6-8 Vicodin/day for about a week. Then got down to 4-6/day for several days. Yesterday, very little pain & only took 1 Vicodin. Today, 1/2 Vicodin. I feel awful, anxious, weak, sometimes dizzy, low (for me) bloodpressure, just generally not good. I am bipolar and take 50 mg. Lamictol & 1 1/2 to 2 mg. Ativan. Wondering if I'm experiencing Vicodin withdrawal?
Avatar n tn For ulcer treatment, Amoxil is combined with other medications. There are several dosage regimens available, and your doctor will choose the best one for you. If your kidneys are severely impaired or you are undergoing hemodialysis, the doctor may have to adjust your dosage accordingly. Children older than 3 months: Children weighing 88 pounds and over should follow the recommended adult dose schedule. Children weighing under 88 pounds will have their dosage determined by their weight.
Avatar f tn Print it out for your doctor. I knew I had read it somewhere. I have battled sever phantom pain for 13 years, had 68 operations, 23 broken bones so I have learned alot over the years. Let me know what you are gonna do about maybe asking your doctor to prescribe a real pain pill www.aboutlawsuits.
5792451 tn?1390934690 The 'new' rules about pain management and the use of controlled substances ----- don't get me started!!! I agree that there are too many people misusing/selling/prescibing pain meds. Now they've thrown the baby out with the bath water. I can't think of a reasonable solution.
Avatar n tn Many say, especially since our drug of choice was only lortab/vicodin, that you should detox for a few days and then do a quick taper and be finished with it and you should be fine. Others will be along to help you soon I am sure. Take care!
Avatar m tn Everyone is different and it depends on a lot of factors such as age, general health, dosage, and length of use. Usually the acute physical detox is over in 3-7 days. Please stick around and keep posting. This is a fantastic place to get support, encouragement, and advice. Once you quit, let us know what symptoms you are having and we can recommend different remedies that might ease them a little. You can do this!! Good luck to you!

Avatar f tn What is common detox procedure for an infant born addicted to vicodin? My daughter-in-law's sister's baby is being given morphine.(???) What is usual time for withdrawal?
Avatar n tn 5 mg each? Perhaps i am not familiar with the dosage?...if you go ct you will feel like you have the flu for 4-5 could try tapering down with less and less and then quit...either way, there is a withdrawal period..but it is do-able..make a plan...get the thomas recipe from the health pages to the right of the screen,,,there is alot of helpful info to read in the health pages...
907968 tn?1292622204 I imagine they're trained to know which medications work best for which heart problems. As for dosage, I'm not sure. If you look at a PDR the book mentions standard dosages for children, adults and geriatric folks. I know with the antibiotics I use at work we choose which antibiotic works best for which type of injury or specific bacteria. I always calculate dosage according to species (mammals have a different calculation compared to birds or reptiles) and weight.

Avatar n tn I am having trouble finding out what is a safe maximum dosage of Diamox for psuedotumor cerebri. When I had asked my daughters neurologist this question, she said there is no maximum dosage which I found hard to believe that there wouldn't be a max dose on any medication. My daughter is 15 yrs old and had been prescribed a total of 2500 mg per day divided into 3 doses. Does anyone know the max dose for diamox? Thanks!
Avatar n tn I’ve read that the average dosage for adults is 30 mg/day. I’m a 25 year old male. I weigh 220 lbs. and am 5’11”. The only other medication I’m on is 100 mg of Zoloft/day for the treatment of depression. I have no prior medical issues. What would be the appropriate dosage range for me if I were to take this medication? I’ve read that it may have negative effects on the heart. I’m considering talking with my PCP about this but am trying to find out on my own first. Would 60 mg/day be too much?
Avatar n tn My opinion is that you should stay at your current dosage that you reduced to with little to no withdrawal symptoms for at least two weeks for you body to acclimate to that dosage before decreasing again, but again talk to your doctor as you have other conditions to take into consideration.
1634158 tn?1310388133 ive been taking vicodin for 9 months, and i take 20 a day, i need to WD, should i taper because i take so many or CT? i just want my life back and dont want to be a slave to these vicodin anymore, plz can someone tell me how should i start my tapering off??
Avatar f tn Oh, my, MB, THIS is where you belong! For sure, for sure! For one thing so many of us already know you. For another, Autoimmune Encephalitis is the closest mimic to MS that is known. So we here are going through very much what you are going through. We already have 2 others here as permanent members who have been diagnosed with ADEM (Acute Disseminated EncephaloMyelitis). Santana is one and I can't remember right off the other. So we talk about it all the time.
Avatar n tn my 14 weeks baby girl weighing 12 pounds spits up at least 3 to 4 times every feed (4 feeds per day) and she burps many times as well and she gets all cranky and fussy while burping or spitting.. She doesn't cry excessively but she just seems annoyed and we need to keep distracting her..
Avatar f tn Hi, I am new here, never posted before but have been "lurking" for over a year. I have been taking vics for years for back pain. I don't take more than I am prescribed, nor do I take more than two at a time.,I am prescribed 6- 5 milligram tablets a day, but I was taking the maximum. I have cut back to 5 a day for two weeks and intend to go down a half a pill everyother week until I am done.
Avatar n tn i have been taking tons of vicodin since my first trimester for kidneystones first, then migrains i am concerened about the side effects for my baby.
1279189 tn?1275244868 No, with fentanyl on board you will have no withdrawal symptoms from the vicodin. However, it takes two or three days for the fentanyl to reach a steady dosage in your bloodstream, so you may need to overlap with the vicodin a bit as your body gets used to the change. You will not get a "buzz" or as you put it, increased spike in energy from fentanyl that you experience with vicodin.
Avatar f tn if u find urself abusing or using for feeling good instead of for pain...then take heed...if u can stay at that dose without taking more than prescribed then just get on off when the pain is gone..altho this amount doesnt work well due to tolerence after a while..
Avatar f tn Has anyone ever tried it? I have been prescribed all these drugs including the vicodin for a botched broken leg/ankle surgery resulting in nerve pain. However, I generally just stick to the vicodin and rarely use the others. I just desperately want off the vikes as my tolerance and use has reached 8 to 10 pills a day of 10/325 and sick of drugs. Just want to be clean for the first time in 4 years.
Avatar f tn For adults, we often say that FT4 ought to be about midrange. Babies, however, run higher levels of FT4 than adults. The FT4 range you provide doesn't appear to be age-adjusted (it looks like an adult range). Perhaps your pedi endo is adfvising you to increase because he knows babies should have higher levels??? Also, her TSH is quite high, and this usually indicates that a meds increase is in order.
Avatar f tn Hi! Congratulations! Yes, it is safe to take Vicodin while pregnant. As with anything else during pregnancy however, the less the better. Take only the minimum dosage that alleviates the pain, and take it only when plain Tylenol and other methods haven't worked. One other thing about the combination of Vicodin and pregnancy is that it is a real set up for constipation! So watch out for that! Good luck!
Avatar f tn How long have youu been on the vicodin??? Phengran is for nausea but I think it can be addictive if used to long or abused the dosage. Elavil is used for many things from depression, migraine prevention, sleep disorders, to colitis it is not addictive. My concern is that you say you tend to mix several other pain meds like Tramadol which like vicodin is highly addictive and hard to detox from and fiorcet which in some cases has codine in it another opitate like vicodin and tramadol.
