Vicodin for recreational use

Common Questions and Answers about Vicodin for recreational use


Avatar n tn I told my doctor once that I took vicodin before for my migrains that I have been getting and it really helped. I asked my doctor what to do about my migrains because I have tried everything. I get them from my anxiety disorder. NOthing seemds to be working. So I guess yeah it was kinda recreational use.
Avatar f tn I am, or should I say was, a recreational drug user. In the last two months I smoked pot regularly and took approx. 3 vicodin 10mg and 1 percocet 10mg to help with back pain from a car accident. I don't regularly use pain meds and am far from addicted, I am just so worried that those couple pills hurt my little one. :( help!
Avatar m tn Been taking 5-6 5 mg hydro a day due to a disc protusion, really want to get off of them and am taking them for the high not the pain as there isn't any...messed up...
Avatar f tn An additional concern I have is that I have put myself at risk because of recreational use of Vicodin, which has gone on for about 2 yrs. While I have never taken more than a small dosage on a given day (never more than 500mg in a day and most often about 250mg), my usage has been fairly consistent usually about twice a week. Would a tinnitus resulting from Vicodin use be more likely to result in strictly tinnitus, without the hearing loss? Thanks everyone. I really appreciate any input.
Avatar m tn Well, I really don't know what to say. You slipped the vicodin in there on me. Yeah buddy, to me I see some red flags with you. I don't think I would be doing anybody a service if I didn't try and warn you that what your doing is very dangerous. I think before you do anything else try and educate yourself with the dangers of recreational drug use. I've been around the block son. The other side caused me more problems than you'll believe.
Avatar n tn And I am not even sure if you could call coke use recreational - for the people that really like it (your BF is one) there is no recreational use a time or two a month or whatever. Its a slow ride downhill to all of the negatives you have heard about it. I cant make your mind up for you - but I would say if your BF says he wont marry you without the other girl along .... send him packing. Perhaps have him read some things from the Grandfather of coke himself - Sigmund Freud......
Avatar m tn is it safe to take 1 Vicodin 5/500 per day for more than 8 months? can it hurt you? I have been taking it for chronic migraines and join pain for like 6 plus months.
Avatar m tn Otherwise all drugs are krap to me, recreational use? What is that????????? I often thought I could use recreationally, trust me I was wrong. When in doubt, go without!!
Avatar n tn I have no desire to take them for recreational purposes at all. I just want to make sure Im not going to get dragged through withdrawals again. I was only prescribed 10 5/325 Vicodin and im just looking for reassurance that im not going to be put through hell again if i need to take a couple for pain over the course of a few days.

If you can DO NOT SMOKE ANYTHING!!!!!! This is an important question. Some research studies have shown that some women who use recreational drugs during pregnancy use marijuana, thinking that it won't harm the fetus as much as, harder, or more than other recreational drugs.
Avatar m tn s marijuana use is not deemed excessive and does not interfere with daily function, subject must be instructed to discontinue any current use of recreational marijuana prior to entry into study and throughout the study period
Avatar f tn that i just want to do it on my own. will i be ok if i just stop taking vicodin, i have been taking 1-2 pills a day for almost 2 years it seems that if i dont take one my heart pumps reallly fast, is that a withdrawlor what. do people die from stopping the med.
Avatar m tn s been a recreational use under the guise of pain. In the last year I moved abroad and now it is incredibly easy for me to get access to Vicodin - I literally just walk into a pharmacy, ask, pay, and leave. No questions, no prescriptions. What was once my heaven has now become my hell. For the past year I've been secretly buying and taking Vicodin recreationally. I have roommates and one of them is my girlfriend.
397118 tn?1219762250 I was a rx user only...not recreational.....3 yrs on vicodin until a few weeks ago..ct with all the known problems, but now see the light at the end of the tunnel...except....the horrible back pain ...that got me in trouble to begin with.......perhaps your recommendation could help me...
Avatar m tn However, I thought since I had been clean for that long I could use once and be just fine. This was not the case! I have been using heavily again ever since. I am now starting my second day being clean and feel pretty decent. I have one Suboxone and took a half of a quarter late last evening so I would be able to sleep. I want to get clean and live sober. I have caused myself a great deal of financial hardship and have greatly damaged my self-esteem.
229538 tn?1300377767 Currently a prescription for hydrocodone-containing Vicodin can be refilled five times before the patient has to see a physician again. If the drug is reclassified patients could only receive a single 90-day prescription, similar to oxycodone. The drug could also not be prescribed by nurses and physician assistants.
Avatar f tn I am determined to break free from this horrible addiction to vicodin that I have been struggling with for about 2 years. I have taken 5-7 pills a day, various strengths, for recreational use. Well, I stopped getting high from it a while ago & now I am living in a constant state of withdrawal. I am taking more and more and falling into a deeper & deeper depression. I need to stop. Can anyone tell me how long I can expect to feel W/D symptoms from vicodin.
Avatar f tn Hi All, I have found great help in reading all your posts and want to say thanks. I have always like taking vicodin as a recreational drug (like when out drinking on a weekend and a friend hands me one); however, I had a bad accident 1 1/2 ago and have been on them ever since. I take 1 a day during the week...But on weekends, I find myself taking 2 or 3 a day. I know deep down inside I do not need them anymore for the pain. If I do not take one, I start sneezing constantly and can't stop.
Avatar m tn It is just your mind and body giving you signals of need that make you even think of recreational use still. That will happen for a long while. You just have to tell yourself that you don't want to go through nasty withdrawals again and soon the cravings will get easier and easier to resist. It just takes willpower and time. Maybe finding a new hobby or taking a class can help keep your mind occupied with something else besides the cravings.....
Avatar n tn Did your doctor prescribe it to you for this? If not, STOP right now...'experimenting' with prescription medications, which are extremely addictive can NEVER have good outcomes.
Avatar m tn s related to stress and anxiety. They put me on Vicodin for the pain while waiting for a drug called "Topamax" to kick in, which takes a few months, and when it did it only dulled them and lowered the frequency. Because of that, I was on Vicodin for about 5-6 months before I started recognizing signs of tolerance.
481056 tn?1240138727 You posted asking if it's ok to use recreationally not long ago, I think you got your answer just like we told you. Addicts can't use once, it just opens the door for us to spiral down and with each relapse it gets so much harder. Are you really ready to quit, because your stealing his pills and thinking 1 here and there is ok. You should focus more on the mental part, than w/d's, get some type of aftercare and talk to your hubby about this again.
Avatar n tn To joke about some one considering taking cocaine for recreational use who has had three bypass surgeries and is taking blood thinners is just a little reckless. Takes all kinds I guess........................
Avatar f tn I went to my pain managment doc. yesterday, and at 7 only days clean from opiates, I had to come clean with him. According to him, and he is a pain expert, it takes about 3 weeks of consistent use to become physically addicted and goe through acute withdrawl.
Avatar f tn I have been taking Vicodin for hip pain for 6 months, now up to 15mg/3x/day. My doctor today switched me to Tramadol to wean off of the Vicodin over 3 weeks, then stay with the Tramadol. Is Tramadol just as addictive as the Vicodin? Will it help with any withdrawl symptoms I may have from going off of the Vicodin? I am terrified of withdrawl and have no idea if I will experience withdrawl symptoms. Any info on this subject would be greatly appreciated!
