Vicodin dosage high

Common Questions and Answers about Vicodin dosage high


Avatar n tn I posted earlier about some unusual experiences with sub but didn't give any details. My doc recommended me take either 4mg or 8 to start. I was in mild WDs, so I said I'll take 8 to make sure it would get me off those. He agreed, and said if i need more two hours later, take another. Anyway, to make a long story short, I ended up extremely sick the next day.
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.

1511671 tn?1316564203 I have Fibromyalgia and was stable for some time on a low dose of Vicodin. I got an inplant last fall for pain in the occipital region of my brain. A "Occipital Neuromodulation" stimulator. It helped initially but as with a lot of treatments the pain relief gradually subsided. I went to my PCP and told him the two vicodin a day were not helping anymore so he suggested Methadone for long term pain management. I was a little put off because of the negative image Methadone has.
Avatar f tn I believe that will truly show what needs to be done next. In your situation though since you are on such a high dosage it may require a doctors help to get you to stop. They don't ever release confidential information to anyone but yourself, but they may quit prescribing pain meds.. But it would probably be for the best. Try not to get too stressed, I know that work and kids can be quite stressful I deal with the same thing. I find it hard to quit as well. But you can do it though.
1374564 tn?1295059520 I am trying to figure out what the hell I saw in that drug in the first place. My husband says my reaction was so strong because of the high dosage after not having any Vicodin in my system for close to five months now. I didn't have withdrawals or cravings afterward and I am looking at this as a learning/warning experience and will never swallow another Vicodin again.
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?
232328 tn?1207090071 I was prescribed anti-depressants along with vicodin, but the vicodin became my anti-depressant and I started abusing it, which led to more problems. Just a word of caution.
Avatar f tn I guess the high from vicodin. Since I have been taking them for my back I am not certain if this is a high feeling. I can tell you this the drug has certainly changed my personality and my daily routine. I could care less about anything...I lay around all day watching tv and doing my pills. I make myself sick...I used to be on the go all the time running here and there and now I don't want to go anywhere or do anything. People talk about the energy they give you - what energy??
653611 tn?1235776013 ive been taking vicodin for a surgury which took place two days ago its a minor surgury so im going back to work tomorrow, i was wondering if i took a vicodin tonight {its about nine pm] will i have a hangover tomorrow when i have to be up for work ay 730 am?
Avatar f tn I don't think advising the use of illegal drugs is good advice in an addiction forum. If she 'smokes dope' that is just substituion, switching one high for another high. That is not the right way to go. Weed will just lead her back to pills eventually, well it did me. Also it wasn't so harmless for me and my family. When i was high, i wanted to stay that way, when I wasn't I wasn't happy.
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 m tn Hi, Ive been taking vicodin for about 2 to 3 months now almost everyday. I usually try not go go over the 4,000mg of acetaminophen a day. However i sometimes take up to 2,500 mg of acetaminophen at once. Now i always year people say the max apap dosage is 4,000 mg per day. But nobody says what the body can handle at one time. So basically what i'm wondering is.... Does anybody think its possible that i've damaged my liver beyond repair??
Avatar m tn My pain was so bad that they put me on fentanynil patches for 30 days and I am wondering how they will go trhu with taku=ing my off these patches. I have taken btween 600-700 vicodin and percocets before the patches and want to know the process of ending this.
Avatar f tn Do the benefits outweigh the risks? As far as I know vicodin is not safe to take during pregnancy in any dosage but again, you need to talk to your doctor asap.
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??
431143 tn?1214479427 i dont understand why a "high is better on a norco" than a vicodin? if they are the same dose of hydrocodone, what difference would it make?? anyhow i would think they are equally addictive, they are the same drug.
Avatar f tn m wondering if anyone has any insight or opinion as to whether taking a low dosage of Vicodin over a long period of time could cause Tinnitus to worsen or if Tinnitus is caused more so by a large intake of Vicodin at once? I have never taken more than one 500mg pill in any one day during that time. Also, is Vicodin induced Tinnitus something that can be reversed if the person stops taking this medication? Would greatly appreciate any feedback. Have a great new year's everyone.
Avatar n tn Taking a vicodin never gave me a high, but I only took 1/2 or 1 pill at a time. But I am having the same withdrawals as the others on this site. I agree with cirene that if you can go for 5-7 days without "needing" a pill, then you are probably not addicted, but if try this and can't do it, then rethink whether you are addicted or not. If you give it a try, don't let your pain convince you to take a pill, pay attention to your head.
Avatar f tn but over a100 TSH and a dosage as I high as this. I would have no problem demanding a different thyroid medication like Armour. (and I did exactly that a while back) I am now doing well on my Armour medication. Your cholestrol must be sky high.
12103503 tn?1423448886 It's a high dosage med....I'd be worried to no matter how many doctors told me is safe.
Avatar n tn from "According to the April 1996 New England Journal of Medicine, the most common cause of acute liver failure in the United States is the negative interaction between acetaminophen (Tylenol) and alcohol." To me, your numbers don't sound WAY high, but heed the warning above. Only take tylenol in the recommended dosage (600-800mg daily is too much) and never mix with alcohol.
1667772 tn?1303819811 And its surprising that I even have wd symptoms when I look at my dosage, cos its not near as high as some on here......I cant imagine how hard it is to wd from a higher amount.....For some reason, it doesnt seem as bad as the first time, even though I am at somewhat the same dosage, maybe it was a bit higher before cos I was kind of trying to be careful this time, as I easily could have and wanted to take triple of what I was taking...
Avatar n tn Vicodin is a FDA pregnancy class C drug, but need to define "tons" for us.
Avatar f tn sweetie you are addicted to these pills. We have all been there or are going through the same thing. You will never have enough, it will get worse, do you want to continue to think that a vicodin a day will help your problem? You already said you were asking for more before your prescription ran out. You either have to face that you are addicted and get off of them, or continue down that destructive road of never being able to get enough and needing more and more for the "high".
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.
