Avatar n tn Before I ever touched a drug, I've lost a job because I was just too tired to go to work. Nothing ever helped with that before vicodin, not that the vics are really helping, I know they're just masking it, but I think that is one of the reasons I got so addicted. I'm glad to hear your doctor's appt. went well and the subutex is working for you so far. Southernbelle, my thoughts are with you. I will keep emailing you.
660300 tn?1224793961 I had my Wisdom Teeth taken out 2 weeks ago...ever since then my right lip and chin have been completely numb...I went back to the Oral Surgeon who wants to wait a month to see what happens, I have a follow up appointment in November right before Thanksgiving. Is there anything I can do to help? Based on common experience, how long does nerve damage "usually" take to heal? I feel like I am in the dark...I cannot stand it...
Avatar n tn it started when i was in the 6th grade and got headaches and went to my doctor and he told me i had migraine headaches and gave me vicodin. i took them with no sign of addiction. but then i felt the pills not giving me the effect i wanted. then i started taking them when i had bad days. and i my rational was this will make my day better. then on good days i would start to take them saying to myself this will make the day great. and on great days it would make them better.
Avatar n tn Unfortunately, while black market people are available, there are only certain products on it. Vicodin I have always had an affinity to but has actually not been on the black market in my area since about a year.
382218 tn?1341185087 Gosh darn it! I meant to say I had my wisdom teeth removed under local, not general, anesthesia. I get so frickin' annoyed when the words don't come out right. And I wonder why people don't understand me.
Avatar f tn No don't take it!
Avatar f tn One of my wisdom teeth is coming up the slightest bit crooked, not enough to effect it once it's fully erupted, but just enough to irritate the gum and cause it to swell and thus cause me to be in a rather lot of pain I also have random other pain, sometimes my ankle, sometimes my hip, sometimes my elbow(slipped in the kitchen one time and bashed it really hard into the fridge) to name a few.
Avatar n tn It all started about 2 yrs ago. when I had my wisdom teeth pulled. They sat in my closet for the longest time then for some reason I started taking them again. I would take just one at night for the longest time. Then I recently started taking 1-1 1/2 at one time because of course one is no longer giving me any affect. My husband kind of knew something was going down hill. I filled a scrip for 50 pills and I took them all in one week.
Avatar n tn I had wisdom teeth removed 15 days ago. After 5 days I called on Sat & my Dr didn't think it was dry sockets but I went in on that Mon as excruciating pain. It was dry sockets & was balling in the Dr's chair as I couldn't take the pain anymore. The Dr (a different one from whom did surgery) packed me with dressings & 2 hours later I was elated as pain was gone.
Avatar n tn Two spinal surgeries and failed lower back surgery. A new ruptured disc. It's hard not to take Vicodin. I don't want to start with anything else and I don't mix drugs, although, I do take Klonopin, which I find works as a good muscle relaxer (safer than Soma).
Avatar n tn Hi, My daughter, 19, had her wisdom teeth out a few weeks ago. She was given vicodin 50, 1-2 every 4-6 as needed for pain. She found 1 was not enough and was taking 2 every 6 hours. She ended up with complications and an extended recovery and pain, so the Dr. gave her a new script. We asked for 75 as 50 wasn't working and 2 x 50 (100) was too much, making her really high and sleepy.
Avatar n tn Hello If there are anyone out there that can talk to me about my husbands Lortab/Vicodin addiction PLease email me at ***@**** I am wondering if this could make him sterile! And if not could it hurt my baby if I was pregnant Please respond!!
Avatar f tn Thank you all for your posts -- each and every one of them mean so much to me! I need to be reminding myself of the lie they really are. When I first started, before I became addicted, I would take half a 5 mg with my friend and drink a few glasses of wine and call that going on a "Vicodin Vacation." And then not even think about the pills for months afterwards.
Avatar f tn I never really thought about it, since my doctor was giving it to me and I took it how he told me to. Well today is day 2 and night 3 of not having any vicodin. I have terriable legg cramps, sweets and I can not sleep. How long does this last? It is driving me crazy. I do not have any cravings for the vicodin. Just the withdraws are killing me. I have been drinking water and taking baths. But it doesn't help any.
Avatar f tn I got my methadone on the street. I think I had a script for opiates once, when I was 17 and had my wisdom teeth pulled, norco. I had not idea what methadone was, but knew they used it to get people off heroine. I thought, well if it's not as addictive as heroine, it must be okay. I went through all the phases sweetness discribed. Wow, this is awesome, and my head is so clear to, I feel like a zomie. Long term methadone use detox was the single most difficult thing I have ever experienced.
Avatar f tn I had a mild infection earlier this week which caused my impacted wisdom teeth to push forward more causing severe pain. I was prescribed Vicodin and Amoxacillin. I took only one Vicodin the first day (I don't take pain killers ever, I just wanted to be able to get sleep and OTC drugs were not working). After that first day, the swelling from the infection went down enough to make the pain tolerable and now is almost gone. I have been taking the Amox as prescribed.
Avatar f tn I have a severe toothache and pain medicine is not working at all. I've been having to deal with this 3 days in a row.
1144660 tn?1261334396 I live in New Zealand and it cost $300 to have two wisdom teeth out (just with normal local anesthetic). The dentist or doctor will advise about the swelling.
Avatar f tn I couldn't let that go on with painkillers not working anymore. If it hadn't been a matter of being able to eat and brush my teeth, I wouldn't have had it done. I wanted to be put out and have my wisdom teeth removed that way with general anesthetic and all, but this one couldn't wait anymore. I was really nervous to have a tooth infection while pregnant too, because I don't know if it could get to baby after hearing horror stories about people getting ear infections, blood infections, etc.
Avatar m tn Hi, I am currently taking 24mg of buprenorphine a day as Suboxone. My wisdom teeth are coming in incorrectly, therefore I will most likely have to have them removed. I know that I have to tell the practitioner in advance that I am on suboxone so there will be no problems with anesthesia, etc. My question requires some pretext. After the sugery I will obviously be in a lot of pain.
Avatar f tn i have had multiple crowns with no problems. i had my wisdom teeth pulled (by someone else) in 2002 and had a dry socket which took a week to clear up but used ice and ibuprofen for the pain. also had 3 root canals with no additional pain meds. biggest dental work was pulling a lower front tooth and then adding a 4 tooth bridge (which meant filing down the other 3 teeth). my tooth puller gave me vocodine but my dentist just said ibuprofen after filing the teeth and adding the temporary bridge.
Avatar m tn Just got my Wisdom teeth pulled out today...i cant stand the pain anymore!!!!!! Vicodin is like candy and not doing a thing...The doc "is not sure why im still in pain" he wants me to call him tomorrow. lol if i make it until tomorrow.
Avatar f tn My upper wisdom teeth are literally decaying. My poor dentist can't take them out until my boy is born (it requires a really thorough X ray and I would probably need put under) so in the meantime I have severe tooth pain. Aspirin is the only thing working, I've even had Vicodin. I'm trying to keep it to a minimum so I'm rinsing with salt water also which seems to help. I may move up to rinsing with hydrogen peroxide.
Avatar n tn It's been 4 weeks and I am still in excruciating pain from having 2 impacted wisdom teeth extracted. It's the right side of my mouth not healing properly. I went back to the surgeon 5 days ago and he says that the wound had not closed nor is it clotted. He says my says my jaw bone and nerves are still exposed to the air or anything that goes in my mouth and that is what is causing the pain.
Avatar m tn ouch I’m in so much pain I can’t talk, my throat is sore from the breathing tube, my eyes and face are swollen, my jaw and teeth felt like I got wisdom teeth pulled, all I can do is groan. For the next 16 hours or so I got no sleep, way too much pain, I was taking 2 Tylenol 3’s, every 3 - 4 hours, they didn’t do much more then numb the pain a small amount. For some reason I was peeing a lot, every 30 min or so, but I was also drinking a lot of water as I didn’t want to be dehydrated.
285896 tn?1237214827 On the positive side, it is best to get your wisdom teeth out. It's not like you need them anyway! Hopefully they are through the skin, so it should be a fairly standard extraction?! ; ) I had all 4 of mine out at the same time and NONE of them were through the skin. They were all inpacted, in fact one had like 3 roots and was somehow intertwinesd w my jawbone, so I ended up having oral surgery.
Avatar n tn What could this be ive been taking vicodin becuase i got my wisdom teeth removed recently could it be that or the anesthisa working its way out of my body im real scared. i keep saying to myself that i dont have als becuase im only 18 and its rare at that age.
