Vicodin withdrawal how long

Common Questions and Answers about Vicodin withdrawal how long


Avatar f tn As I went on, I started to feel more symptoms, chills, shaking, headache, mind fog, irritable bowels, extreme pain, weakness in arms and body, exhausted, and of course the blurred vision and other vision problems such as floaters, visual snow, light is too light, dark is too dark. I am still experiencing all of these symptoms at 1 month off now! Not able to exercise because of still rehabbing from the broken leg. When will these withdrawal symptoms go away? What about the blurred vision?
Avatar f tn How long do I need to wait from last time I got high til I start taking clonidine 1mg.
Avatar n tn This is what makes me crave the pill not the high but quashing this type of w/d that I experience. I absoltely need to know about how long I can expect to feel depressed. I absolutely will not take anti depressants, they make me feel so much worse. I have thougt about tapering off slowly as I arge that I got this way slowly, but I am afraid that is just an excuse to keep using a bit. I am a mother and I feel like I am not being a very good one right now.
5783082 tn?1374177161 Can you tell me a little more about your Sub use? How long did you use, how many mgs were you on, how many mgs were you on when you jumped off? If you're on Day 4 without feeling any ill effects you may be one of the lucky folks who won't experience the Sub WD's. I'm well aware Subs have a very long half-life (similar to Methadone) but you're already on Day 4 so hopefully you'll skip all of the nastiness.
Avatar f tn Hi and Welcome - so you are 23 days off vicodin and having these symptoms? How high a dose had you been taking and for how long? If you are having blurred vision and confusion I would encourage you to seek medical care asap - I highly doubt that is still from vicodin withdrawal and you may have other issues going on. Usually the worst of the withdrawals is the first 5 days then you would just feel weak for a couple weeks. What you are experiencing is not normal.
9704730 tn?1405741284 I am finishing my 3rd day clean from 15 years of being chained to tramadol. This is the hardest thing I have ever done. How long does this pain from withdrawal last? ?? I am scared of figuring out how to live and function without this drug. I have been on it so long I don't remember how I was without it.
Avatar m tn Once you stop taking the opiates, the worst physical W/D symptoms will last about 5 days. Of course this may vary depeding how long you were taking the opiates. Stay hydrated. Drink some gatorade if you can. If you simply can't keep anything down, try sucking on some ice chips. Opiate W/D won't kill you, BUT, if you are dehydrated for to long, you can get sick. So the most important thing is fluids. Keep posting!! It will get better.
Avatar n tn so am looking (and looked) for ms contin withdrawal and for the lowest dose i am on (15 mg) if i will get withdrawal symptoms or not or if i just have to do it and see. any info will be greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn m not sure what to do and if nothing how long will this last? I was under the impression that he worst withdrawal symptoms were within the first few days for sub. Anyone with any experience in this I would greatly appreciate it if you would leave a reply. Thank you.
Avatar f tn Today is day 8 of vicodin withdrawal. I was using vicodin since November, starting at one and a half and going up to two and a half. Months ago I tried tapering down to one but then went up to two again. A month ago, I went through my third of three abdominal surgeries in the last year. After each surgery, I was given a few days worth of pain medicine but back in November I got the script from a neurologist for my back and I've had access to it ever since.
Avatar m tn Today I took 1 so far and I have been unable to sleep and the diarrhea has just set in. I never took more than 5 a day. How long can I expect these withdrawals?
Avatar n tn It does getter better and better each day but sleep is still pretty hard and i have 24 days .How many did you take before u cut down this last time ? how long have you been feeling like this? I recommend buying some good vitamins from GNC , i bought tons of vitamins and drank a ton of water and it really helps .
Avatar n tn I went c/t on a Friday, and three Sundays later (15 full days) I woke up feeling so good I was giddy and my wife thought I was was high. Everybody is different, as body size, amount you were taking and how long, diet, physical condition et cetera all affect how long it takes. However, two weeks seems to be "normal" from what I read on this and other forums and websites. That was ...lessee now.....three months ago and still going strong.
Avatar f tn I have been taking threequarters of a pill of vicodin every 5 hours in a 24-hour day for 7 months. Vicodin is 5/500. I want to quit at home and would like to know how many to withdraw in a day for how long without too much pain. I am a senior citizen.
Avatar n tn how long does it take for all or most of the symptoms to go away? Thank you so much in advance!
5527883 tn?1392586811 Thanks for the replies, this is something I have dealt with since I was a young child. I have seen 8 doctors for this issue in my life, including two Neurologists, and two pain specialists. I have tried everything you can imagine. Imitrex was probably one of the first things they tried me on, as well as a host of others. I have tried injections, including botox (if you can believe they use that for migraines..) sprays (nasal sprays), changes in my diet, testing for allergies.
Avatar m tn Everyone is different, but for me, the withdrawal symptoms lasted about a week, and peaked in intensity about days 3 and 4! It really does depend on how much and how long, to estimate how strong and long your symptoms will be! If you haven't already done so, please check out the Thomas Recipe at the bottom of the page! There are vitamins and supplements that you can take which will help with the withdrawal symptoms! Drink tons of fluids like water and Gatorade to help flush your system!
Avatar n tn How long does it take for the drug to leave the body? If I cold long will the withdrawal be? The dosage seems mild, but the dependency scares me. Will tapering off do? I suspect not, even though my doctor supports that move.
Avatar m tn how many were you taking for how long - need some info. People choose either cold turkey or tapering their meds down to a lower dose and stopping. With any regular long term use you will have withdrawal symptoms that last usually 4-5 days with days 2-3 being the worst. If you can give more specifics I'll be happy to follow up. Are you physically dependent on the vics or do you feel it is more.
