Vicodin nightmares

Common Questions and Answers about Vicodin nightmares


967168 tn?1477584489 t know why it would cause me nightmares when I take it at 7am and go to bed normally around 9-10 pm? I have taken Vicodin before after another surgery and never had this problem, so I'm stumped why this is happening. Anyone else have this happen?
Avatar f tn i was prescribed vicodin from a pill happy doc, who has kept refilling since june 1. at first i was popping about 6 a day to deal with the horrible back pain. now i have weaned myself down to 3 a day. i do not want to take them anymore! when i am on them i have no pain and i feel great but i can't sleep on them. i have nightmares! is this normal? as i have been weaning off of them i also notice myself having anxiety attacks. is this normal?
Avatar f tn So, I've been dealing with MAJOR stress and anxiety... Big time!! Plus of course I never get a break from the cravings... I'm jealous when I see so many people that quit the pills and just forget about them. That just isn't the case for me. Its not every minute but it is usually a couple times a day...i think it's because I have so much personal stuff to deal with and my first gut reaction is to pop a pill...numb the pain... Hey, I have to retrain myself...
967168 tn?1477584489 this is ridiculous how can I take a 500mg Vicodin that has a little pain relief for 3 hours and it make me have nightmares 10 or 12 hours later? Last night I had nightmares about my upcoming GYN appt. I've had so many appt's with this dr since 1997 I can't even count them all, and I trusted him enough when other dr's couldn't find what was wrong to dx and cure me - have surgery in 2005 yet here I am scared to death of going to see him!
Avatar f tn My pain management doctor recently switched me to hydrocodone 10-500 due to pharmacy crack downs and I am itching like crazy and having bad nightmares and don't sleep well and grind my teeth bad. I must be having an allergic reaction? I'm not allergic to anything but this now. I'm suffering in pain cause I can't take these side effects! I was on Oxycodone 10-325 and didn't have any problems.
1096641 tn?1271707225 OMG! what a nightmare...just yesterday I posted about coming up on my 10 year clean-a-versary for crack cocaine...last night I had a dream that I was using...binging in fact. it was a very detailed dream about powder and rock cocaine and I actually got 'high' in the dream. Even in the dream I said "damn...I just posted about coming up on 10 years, I can't believe I'm doing this" but continued to do it anyway... then I woke up...
1374564 tn?1295059520 On Tuesday I had the worst migraine I have had in a very long time and I could not get in to see my doctor so I caved and went to my sister for some Vicodin. She gave me two 10/325's of which I took one immediately. While it did alleviate the pain almost immediately, it made me feel queasy, floaty and completely out of control. I hated the sensation! I had constant dry mouth and often was startled awake by my own gagging.

710513 tn?1247522479 I started taking Vicodin 2+ years ago for a back problem, had surgury 2 months ago.....I am so pleased to say I am now 9 days clean..the first 8 were absolutly miserable but there seemd to be a light at the end of this tunnel. I only took 6 7.5's per day, i would occasionaly sneak in an extra 1 or 2 but for the most part stayed at 6.. I thank all of you who take the time to reply as i can tell you it made a hugh difference to me. The one issue I struggled with and still am is sleep.
414776 tn?1202738690 I need help...i stopped taking vicodin 2 days ago, im sick as a dog..i cant go to detox, nobody knows about it..(family,coworkers.etc) im having flu like symptoms i can barely focus on this task right now, i was taking between 2000 and 4000 mg a day for the past two years, im confused, ive been crying not sleeping having nightmares going to the bathroom every 5 minutes..i feel like dying...any suggestions for at home treatments? thanks ..
Avatar f tn Thank you opiateswon for answering so soon! I am only tapering for a few days because I only have a few vicodin left, probably be out by four days from now. I've gone from 8 vicodin per day to 3 now and don't start taking them until 2. I will keep myself busy. Believe it or not I jogged 3 miles yesterday in the warm sun. I haven't done that for a long time, and still did not sleep well. I guess if I didn't get exercise it could have been worse right?
Avatar m tn I truly have arthritis too and am on only 3, 5mg vicodin a day. vicodin(hydrocodone) usually gives me nice dreams when i take my last pill at bedtime. but it does nothing to rid these extremely stressful paxil(paroxetine) withdrawal sleep nightmares. I mean these dreams are so vivid and unlike scarry nightmares have too much to do with the reality of my bitter life. I am afraid to go to sleep. I am exhausted and i have so much to get done this week.
Avatar f tn Hello everyone! I had my appointment with the psychiatrist today, and let me tell you, I am really glad that I had the appointment. Some of you have seen my posts recently that I've had a lot of trouble going to sleep and actually staying asleep. In the past few weeks I've actually stayed up 2 or 3 days all night long, and gone into work. I spoke iwth my psychiatrist and he decided to keep me on some of the same medication and then changed it to other medication.
