Avatar n tn Help. im on day 10 with no vicodin. From 20 a day. I cant sleep. Im going crazy. I dont know if i can make it through another day of my legs kicking and not being able to sleep.
Avatar n tn Every time I stop, the first day or two I cant sleep. So I go out to find vicodin so I can sleep. I take about 10 a day of the 7.5. I called the Doc and he was going to put me on suboxen??. I cant afford it. Does any one know how long it will be before I can sleep. Is there any sleeping pills that help. Would xanax help?
Avatar m tn I spoke up to my DR (Surgurn) and he understood and said it was over his head and refered me to my GP. Going to see her today or tomorrow. My DR did prescribe 20 10/500's and I took 2 and feeling better. Hoping my GP will work with me on a real slow detox so I can get off of this stuff forever. I always thought "not me", but I was wrong and it could happen to anyone. I'm just looking for the least painfull way out of this nightmare.
Avatar m tn I have only been able to sleep for 4 hours a night and when I wake up I get the feelings of a withdrawal. I was thinking of getting melatonin(sp) and some other form of sleep aid like tylenol pm. Any suggestions would really be great! I know I am getting close, but any help would be great! This site has helped me out alot in the first couple of days! Thank you!
Avatar m tn m reading I will still feel the withdrawal .. will it be a mild WD? and can I take a 5mg vicodin to ease some of the WD. I know I will not go back on them. I have 5 left over from a dentist visit a few months back I just don't want to have WD symptoms be off all pills and live my life like a normal person.
Avatar m tn I just woke up into day 5 of my vicodin withdrawal and I gotta say I feel better today than I have in some time. I hope I am not being too optimistic but we will see how the day goes. All of the information from this fabulous group of people will aid in your quest...however, you must WANT to do this. Like gnarly it is 2/3 mental - such a true statement...you can do this.
Avatar n tn looking for non script sleep aid for first week of vicodin withdrawal. my experience has been inability to sleep, frustration and lots of sighing and leg movement. within a week i am ok.
Avatar n tn My question is what are the symptoms of vicodin withdrawal. I have been taking 8 tablets a day for over a year. I know that doesnt sound like a lot to some people but for me that is quite a bit. I have been experiencing overall pain for quite some time. I would get prescriptions for vicodin(5mg...7.5mg and 10mg) also I would be get prescriptions for tramadol. I would use them the way I was supposed to and then stop when I didnt need them.
1019316 tn?1262615059 I wonder if it was just from the withdrawal from vicodin, but a withdrawal after 4 days?? I have never had a withdrawal after 4 days but I have also never taken close to ten vicodin a day for 4 days. Anyone know?
Avatar f tn Morning, feeling better already; it's now 7:05 am EST. it's been about 18 hours since my last dose- I've even gone to the bathroom. Headache is gone as is the nausea, I am feeling a little tired but that could be from the rough nights sleep. As a bit of a hypochondriac I did some research into Vicodin w/d's. They said (obviously based on dosage and duration) but you could feel the w/d's within 6-12 hours after the last dose.
Avatar f tn I've been taking 0.25mg of Ativan four times a day for about 6 weeks for anxiety. I haven't taken any for 4 days and feels really anxious and am having trouble sleeping. I also take Vicodin 5/500 1/2 tab 2-4 times a day. I was also taking that for anxiety. I'm still taking the Vicodin hoping that it will help me get off Ativan. I'm really scared by all the stuff I've read about Ativan and wish I'd never started it.I guess my question is: Will I feel better soon?
1070971 tn?1299614110 I tried all the over the counter remedies and they did not work. I am in the stage of depression right now from the vic withdrawal. I know if I get no sleep the depression gets worse. It feels like there is no end. I don't know if I should just try not taking it but no sleep for several days. Every time I don't take ambien I can not get even an hour of sleep. I have to work every day I am going through this from now on and take care of my kids.
Avatar f tn But you will still be tired for a while, you will most likely not sleep well for a while. You difinately wont sleep for the first part of the withdrawals. Your energy will come back and the length of time is different for everyone. Dont get discouraged. As I mentioned being prepared is part of the battle. Also if this drug use is recreational you will need to deal with that problem too. If you want a detailed account on the withdrawals from day to day someone will let you no.
Avatar n tn thanks for all your suggestions. to answer your questions: 1. polly08: yes i have been on neurontin and topomax(those actually didn't help my head and made me gain 70lbs which was horrible..finally lost it after i stopped taking it)! 2.flmagi: haven't tried the oxygen mask idea...it's a possibility and i'd love to get a special mattress made but because of my health issues i'm on temporary disability and can't afford one..
1448936 tn?1363206346 He was taken to the er for stitches and prescribed vicodin 5mg. He had surgery a couple weeks ago and was given more vicodin. At the beginning he was taken about 8 vicodin a day and has now only been taking 1 or 2 a day as his last script is almost done. He's been feeling nauseous, achey, anxious and having the runs. I'm assuming its from the vicodin but is it possible to have withdrawals after an almost two month time period of using vicodin regularly?
Avatar f tn Days 3-5 were probably the hardest. After that it got better. Treat the symptoms...immodium, alteril (OTC) for sleep or benedryl for sleep and the cold like symptoms. The emotional stuff does s u c k, but for me they slowly got better...took about 10 days to really see a big diff. My doctor helped me with some supportive meds, but I have done it without those as well. You have to be willing to feel bad for awhile to feel good. It is so worth it. I hope it takes for you this time.
Avatar n tn its 3am cannot sleep very anxious just srted taking vicodin 5 days ago what can I do ? I was taking ultram for the past seral years and quit to take Vicodin. Ultram wasnot helping anymore and felt the same anxiety when I quit taking ultram.
