Avatar f tn from the vicodin or is it the Xanax? was it the Xanax too and the vicodin would mask it? Or is it still the vicodin w/d i am feeling? just curious. if this makes no sense let me know. basically just wondering if the feelings i am having are from the Xanax. Not sure when w/d start with Xanax?
Avatar n tn I have been clean off vicodin and xanax for 2 weeks, but my urine drug test, still comes out positive. How is this so?
Avatar m tn there is no doubt that your body is already addicted to the xanax..it doesn't take real long..I would suggest tapering down from that..I am glad your going to the dr..how long have you been taking vicodin? Xanax w/d can be very dangerous, and although you haven't been on them long i would still try and taper..You can pm me if you'd like...I tapered off of alot of xanax...to me it sounds like you are having some mild w/ds from xanax..
450052 tn?1207660274 Hi, I am in the same boat. Started back on vicodin after a 2 months break. I was taking soma and vicodin but can't get the soma anymore so the Dr. tells me to take the vicodin. I cannot take any anti inflammatory and Tylenol Arthritis just doesn't take the edge off. So here I am again on 2-3 vicodin a day. Not sure how else to manage the pain. I, too, feel like a failure as have stopped this 3 times already but the pain gets the best of me...
Avatar f tn Hi, I have tapering since Sept 21, 2012 25mcg of Fentanyl Patch I was prescribed and on for almost 2 years. I went off the patch on Sept 21,2012, and am tapering with Vicodin ( 45 mg per day in DIVIDED doses over a 24 hour period) and 6 MG Xanax ( also in divided doses ) in a 24 hour period. Does ANYONE have experience about WHEN and HOW to taper off these " taper" meds?
2030769 tn?1343647674 re starting to crave the xanax - in all probability it is helping you with the vicodin withdrawals. Benzos will keep the anxiety at bay and make detoxing a bit easier, and as you know, will help you to sleep. .50 mgs is still a low dose, but it sounds like you've been taking the xanax almost daily .25, then up to 2mg for a time and now .50 for about 2 years. It's the 2 years that concerns me. Are you in a position to go to a doctor and discuss this with him or her?
Avatar n tn My friend is 32 weeks pregnat and her dr has her taking vicodin for a pelvic pain she has been having. She has already been taking them for atleast 2 weeks, Is vicodin safe for the baby?
Avatar n tn i was off for a few weeks and i was scared of withdrawal so i have been taking 1 to 1 1/2 vicodin since the 27th of sept.I have been on xanax 20 years and the vicodin did seem to give me energy...now im afraid im hooked and i stress so over it and having withdrawls that im afraid to stop it,but I need to..so Im asking do u think im addicted or if mayne i cut the pills in 1/3s and try a 1/3 a day for a while and then stop that would be ok..i dont seem to be getting the energy from them.
Avatar f tn I took a xanax the first night of cold turkey to sleep but it didn't help so I quit.Well today is day 10 so I wonder if I try the xanax tonight if it might work?
Avatar f tn Just my experience....I stopped the vicodin cold turkey and was also on xanax 2 mlg twice daily for 15 years. With my doctors guidance I did a very slow taper and am off them as well. Definately speak with yor doctor....going off xanax especially after 20 years needs to be monitored by a doctor BUT it can be done. I feel so much better off the xanax! Good luck to you foxy!
Avatar f tn I've been taking Xanax .5 mg 1 a day for 4 to 5 months now. I was getting them off the street for my anxiety. I also was snorting vicodin 7.5 mg for 6 to 7 months 1 to 3 a day. I've been off the vicodin for 3 days now. And this is my 1st day not taking the Xanax. I don't want to get a seizure bc of not taking the Xanax. But I want to quit these pills bc I feel they r controlling me. The withdrawals suck on the vicodin. But I hope I can beat this.

Avatar n tn I recently got off Vicodin on January 2nd. It became addictive. I've been on Xanax for 10 years and I am tapering. I'm taking 1-1/2 mg. per day and I started taking Prozac at 10 mg. per day a week ago. I am experiencing racing thoughts, discomfort with my heart beating, clammy, smoky taste in my mouth after sleeping, horrible Anxiety buzz (Which begins with the racing thoughts), sore temple, tightness in head.
Avatar m tn Hi all, I had been on Xanax 2mg,Vicodin 5/500mg and Tramadol 50mg for 2 yers(Xanax and Tramadol) and 1 year(Vicodin)taking 8 to 10mg Xanax and 2 to 4 pills of tramadol and Vicodin daily. I am slowly weaning off the Xanax, I'm on day 53 and down to 6.75mg and quit cold turkey the tramadol and the vicodin 16 days ago.
Avatar f tn I have been a regular Xanax user ever since my dad died 3 years ago. Although I'm an extremely anxious person I used to take it perioidically for certain situations, I now have to take it every night to sleep. I vary my dosages depending on how I feel. My sister was also taking it and developed an irregular heart beat, she has since been able to get off of it.
Avatar m tn Ive been taking 5-6 750mg vicoden for 2 years and 1 1/2mg of xanax for about 5 yrs.. I have severe back pain and severe anxiety. I have recently noticed rapid weight loss and no apetite. Ive lost about 20lbs in a couple months and a pound daily. I am now concerned about liver problems.. history of kidney stones so i thought the pain was kidney stone related, but more now points to liver. I feel I need to stop tonight, and really scared for my health. im 26 yrs old with a family of 4.

Avatar m tn I have tried to withdraw from Xanax 2mg, I took 4 or 5 pills a day for more than a year. I tried in the last several days to start cutting off by 0.50 mg per week but is still way too much. I have migraine headaches everyday, back muscle cramps, anxiety, shakin g, rapid heartbeat, can't almost sleep, you name it. I guess I will stick to 4 pills a day untill the doc give me the refill by mid of the month of 1 mg pills, so I can start weaning off by 0.25 mg per week or two weeks.
Avatar f tn A lot of people do detox from Vicodin at home and are successful. The Xanax is a different story. It is not safe to abruptly stop using it. While I understand your not wanting to tell anyone, you really need a doctor's help with a tapering plan. I am not trying to scare you, but stopping benzos cold turkey can cause seizures. Unfortunately we can't give tapering advice here on the forum because it is something that needs to be worked out with the help of a doctor.
Avatar f tn sinus surgery im also on xanax
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.
563594 tn?1309583132 went to a different doctor~ background on this, I took .25-.5 mgs of xanax daily for 4 months and then during my vicodin taper/cold turkey went up to 2mgs daily for the last 2 months. been on it 6 months total. My doctor is going to taper me down to 1.5mg for a week, then 1mg for a week, then .5mg for a week and then stop. too fast? I'm scared, but I'm always scared...
Avatar m tn Yeah, I feel a bit proud of myself, it has been more than 2 months that I am clean from Tramadol and Vicodin, yeah! But still I have to fight a long and hard battle with the Xanax, I hope I can win, pray for me. I will appreciate it.
