Common Questions and Answers about Vicodin side effects anxiety


4753943 tn?1359934569 The worst will be over in 3 days and then you may experience lack of energy and some anxiety for a little while and some insomnia. Just concentrate on the vicodin for now. The Effexor may start working for you to lift your spirits because when we abuse pain pills it nullifies the good effects of the Effexor. Then maybe when school is out for the summer, you can continue with your Effexor taper. What do you think?
Avatar f tn I just started on Zohydro ER because the idea of not taking acetaminophen with hydrocodone was tempting. (There's a Black Box warning about the acetaminophen in Vicodin). The first day I started the Z. (about 5 days ago) I got less pain relief and much more pain than I had with 5/375 Vicodin! That's seems totally wrong but it happened. The dose of the Z is the same as I got for the number of 5/375s I took per day. Anyone else on Z. and how do you like it? Any side effects?
Avatar f tn m not referring to meds for anxiety like xanax, etc but I have noticed lately that when I take vicodin for pain it seems to bring on anxiety. Anyone else had this? I take several different meds for various things.
Avatar m tn In most cases withdrawal symptom feels like a flu. Muscle ache, diarrhea, nausea, sweat and etc.. How sever they will be or how lengthy is really different from one patients to the other. Maybe your will not be so bad. Some patients have minimum side effects. Good Luck.
600857 tn?1230057770 OK, here's the "strange one" of the group. I have taken Vicodin for 4 years. It only makes me "grumpy" at the end of a day when I have over done my limitations and I am hurting and absolutely nothing works to ease my pain. My family knows when it's one of those evenings and they are kind enough to leave me alone and let me be a "B" all by myself. I don't even want to be around anyone. But those days are not often.
Avatar m tn I am fortunate in that pain meds work to control pain to a tolerable level after surgery, but do not cause any feelings of euphoria or pleasure or unplesant psychiatric side effects either. They are just so constipating that using them is unpleasant. I hope you don't need much surgery or they can find something that doesn't cause you so much trouble. You may have to be hospitalized overnight after surgery so they can monitor your reaction to meds. It sounds awful.

Avatar f tn Hi there. I believe that your pain complaints are valid and this may be a side effect of neupogen shots (this bone pain can be part of the usual 'flu like' side effects associated with the drug). If you are experiencing pain from this treatment, then I believe it is inhuman to withhold pain medications for you, though I agree there can also be side effects from the chronic intake of pain medications (such as dependence or kidney problems).
Avatar n tn As far as detox- alcohol is the only detox that can kill u if I ts not medically managed and the alcohol intake was severe and/or long term abuse.tremors, seizures, agitation, anxiety, hallucinations, nausea and vomiting. Seizures and hallucinations disorientation are critical symptoms and need emergent medical help!! Opiate detox is hell. Severe agitation, anxiety, insomnia, muscle spasms, high blood pressure, sweats, puking. Diarrhea. It sucks but isn't lethal.
4753943 tn?1359934569 I'm so afraid to tell my doctor that I'm addicted to Vicodin, because I know she'll stop prescribing it and I feel like she will judge me. I'm really anxious about the withdrawal symptoms because I'm hypersensitive to medication and side effects. It feels like I have just been hit by a bus when I stop taking hydrocodone for a couple days. How long do these withdrawals last? I have only been on this medication for a year or less, by the way. Thanks.
Avatar n tn Am I having side effects from Prozac or withdrawal from Vicodin. How much time should I give the Prozac to work, I've never taken an anti-depressant before, out of fear, but I do love to live life, I'm confused on what to do with these symptoms.
1041243 tn?1375230520 Has anyone else expirienced this with vicodin? How long does it last after the vicodin is discontinued? Can this happen with other narcotic pain meds? Any thoughts on this would be greatly appriciated.
4753943 tn?1359934569 For example, when I had first started taking medication, I read up on possible side effects and of course started to feel them and relate any symptom to the medication whether it was relevant or not. If you are concerned about it, why not talk to your prescribing doctor or pharmaacist about it? For me, keeping an open line of communication between your health care provider(s) and myself is important. Are you also in counseling for your anxiety?
Avatar f tn d a short term course of of an anti-anxiety med, like Xanax or Ativan, to help with the side effects. That may make a world of difference for you. Definitely don't just stop taking the Lexapro without first discussing all of this with your doctor. You both may decide that the side effects are just too much, or your starting dose may have been a little on the high side. A typical starting dose would be 10mg, for some people sensitive to meds, they can even start out at 5mg.
Avatar f tn Benzos like this can cause withdrawals when they are stopped suddenly. How often do you take it on an 'as needed' basis? Have you talked with your prescribing doctor about potential side effects? The good thing is you got checked out and you are ok medically. When I came off of certain benzos I had to come off of them very slowly to reduce side effects. Also, could you be under some more stress these past couple of months?
Avatar m tn I woke up this morning worried about side effects and felt like my heart was racing and going to beat out of my chest. I took 2 xanax (which I've been taking for years) and feel like I'm calming down, but I'm worried this racing heart is a side effect or if it's just my anxiety of taking the new medication. I want to get my life back but I think I'm afraid even this won't work. Would appreciate any advice or feedback.
Avatar f tn It's not a common side effect, but I reacted very similarly to topamax. I also have lupus which my doc says is playingi into it. Havent' seen the rheumatoligist yet- a 3 month wait- and I have pull! But my appointment is next week. I digress Now that worried878 mentions it, I am much more anxious since starting it. I didn't think I was anxious before, but really ,really am now.
