Vicodin and Percocet are two powerful prescription pain medications. Vicodin contains hydrocodone and acetaminophen. Percocet contains oxycodone and acetaminophen. Read on for an in-depth comparison of these two medications, including how well they work, how much they cost, and what side effects they may cause. Vicodin and Percocet are opioid narcotic medications. Morphine also belongs to this class. Drug Enforcement Administration classifies opioids as Schedule 2 drugs.
This means they have a high risk of abuse and could lead to a physical or psychological dependence addiction. Vicodin and Percocet are both prescribed to treat moderate to severe pain.
For the most part, they should only be prescribed to treat acute or short-term pain caused by an injury or surgery. However, in some cases, these drugs may be prescribed to treat chronic or long-term pain due to conditions such as arthritis or cancer. Opioids work by interfering with the way pain signals are sent through your central nervous system CNS to your brain. This reduces the pain you feel and makes movement and everyday activities easier. Both Vicodin and Percocet come in brand-name and generic versions.
The brand-name versions come in tablet form. The generic versions of come in tablet and liquid forms. Both Vicodin and Percocet have been shown to be highly effective in treating pain. In a study comparing the drugs, researchers found that they both worked equally well for short-term pain management. Another study showed that they work equally well in treating acute pain caused by fractures. However, a different study found that oxycodone, the drug in Percocet, was 1.
Generic versions of drugs generally cost less than the brand-name versions. Because generic versions are available for both Vicodin and Percocet, most insurance companies require that you be prescribed the generic version. The active ingredients in the generic versions of these drugs are the same as in the brand-name versions.
Which means their effects should be the same. At the time this article was written, GoodRx. Costs for the generic versions of these drugs were similar to each other and much lower than for the brand-name versions.
Because Vicodin and Percocet are both opioid pain medications, they share similar side effects. Common side effects of Vicodin and Percocet can include:. While both drugs are likely to cause constipation, oxycodone has been associated with causing this side effect in more people compared to hydrocodone.
The long-acting form of oxycodone may cause less constipation than the immediate-acting form. Severe but less common side effects can occur with Vicodin and Percocet medications. If you have any of these side effects, call or go to the nearest emergency room right away.
These side effects may include:. Both Vicodin and Percocet affect your mental and physical abilities, such as judgment and reflexes. Vicodin and Percocet are powerful drugs, so you should be aware of the risks involved with taking them. Even if you take them exactly as prescribed, Vicodin or Percocet may become habit-forming. In other words, these drugs can cause physical or mental dependence.
For this reason, doctors are cautious when prescribing them. There is also the risk of a withdrawal response when stopping these drugs.
If you take either drug for more than a few days, talk to your doctor before you stop. Your doctor can help you taper off the medication slowly.
This reduces your risk of withdrawal. Be sure to take these drugs exactly as your doctor prescribes to reduce your risk of both dependence and withdrawal problems.
Like most drugs, Vicodin and Percocet can interact with other medications. This means that when used with certain other drugs, these medications can cause effects that can be dangerous. Before you take Vicodin or Percocet, tell your doctor about all other medications you take, including vitamins and supplements. Vicodin and Percocet interact with many of the same drugs. For more information, visit the interaction sections for Vicodin and Percocet.
If you have certain health conditions, taking Vicodin or Percocet could increase certain risks. Before taking Vicodin or Percocet, be sure to tell your doctor if you have constipation or intestinal blockage. Opioid analgesics can cause increased constipation, so ask your doctor if you should avoid taking them. You should not drink alcohol while taking either Vicodin or Percocet. Combining alcohol and these painkillers can cause extreme dizziness or drowsiness, and can even be deadly.
In some cases, taking one of these drugs with alcohol can cause liver damage. This is true if you drink more than three alcoholic drinks per day, have alcoholic liver disease, or have a history of alcohol abuse. Vicodin and Percocet are opioid pain medications that are similar in many ways. Some of the main ways in which they differ are strengths and cost. If your doctor feels you need Vicodin or Percocet for your pain, they will choose the drug for you based on several factors.
These factors include your health history and how your body has reacted to pain medications in the past. If you have questions about your prescription or about either of these drugs, be sure to ask your doctor. Questions to ask your doctor might include:.

Very proud of you, keep a support system and allow God to guide you in you new liberated life!!!! Hi, ive been on 30mg oxycodone8x a day for the past 4 months. Originally it was the time released contin, and ran out early, told my doc it was giving m stomach distress which it was but not that severe. Again, now ive been past my mg a day max to topping and now a6 days short til next visit. I know i have to decrease fast so i can make it and get a grip for the future.
The next visit, my doc was planning on starting my decrease, but I NEED to make sure i make it to the visit not short…. How should i approach this? I pills left. Is this gonna be severe withdrawals? Been on oxy for 10 years. Tried to quit but ended up in hospital 5 times. Now taking 10 mg about 10 pills a day. My worst withdrawal is extreme cramping and diarhea.
I really need help please can someone tell me what to do. My stomach really kills me when I stop. What is the solution. I hope someone can provide help please. To be clear, Id have to drop from 10 or so 30mg Oxycodone to 5 to make to next refill….. Terrified of this, and wish i would of controlled myself. This is so horrible.
I guess I have no choice. I feel keeping myself busy does help a bit, but have severe pains in neck and back from work accident. I get very depressed over this.
Feel like its a war and im losing. I feel for all of you on here! Its no joke my friends. But we have to really think long term and i must practice what i preach as well! Gonna have to cut my mg to mg dose that i abused to , to mg to get through next script.
Very depressed, and new better , but was being irresponsible and hope l can do this now. Its a big drop! Already feeling a tad sick. Hope it does not get worse. Guess theres not much advice other then to be grateful i still have them and can try to get through this month.
I was left with sciatica, and I could not sit, stand or walk for any length of time. I use to be on kadian, oxycontin, flexoril, lyrica, neurontin, and norflex. The fusion is the worst drunk driver of my problems, but I also knew that being constipated, only all the time, was making me feel lethargic and ugly. I asked my doctor to switch me to oxycodone.
I went off all the other stuff, except I take 10mg of flexoril at bedtime. I am having a very hard time going from 30mg of oxycodone to 20 mgs. Tossing and turning, sweating, negativity from a normally upful woman. How long is this going to last? I would appreciate any kind of help on this one. I told my husband and 19 year old son, so they would hopefully, understand my moodiness. I am not sure I will ever be drug free with 8 titanium screws and a plate so high up in the cervical spine, but 10mgs TID, is my goal.
Ok, i was switched from instant to time released and it was a mild adjustment but will be planning now to extend time intervals slowly extending the intake.
Id recommend that for anyone who is on pain meds for starters. Or, taking the instant the same method by extending the time intake. Look, most of us know that when those pills are sitting around, we make excuses and push it off, but do it asap! I played that hand plenty and always wind up in panic,depressed,scared mode. Also,clonidine,a muscle relaxer, or better a low milligram valium,zanax, will help with anxiety.
I want my life back bad enough,and some advice…always plan ahead if suboxone,subutex,or methadone is your alternative! Suboxone is the one id be concerned about cause everyones body is different.
Some need only to wait 24 to 35 hours in withdrawal and will experience mild withdrawals while others will take up to 3 to 4 days.
Do not take any without a doctor on call!!! Overall subutex is the best method if weaning off just isnt in the cards,but is hard to find a doctor that will give it. If my insurance didnt take so dam long to approve fusion back surgery with other issues, I would not be in this turmoil,but it is what it is, and we all gotta be strong!
Good luck to all! Also, nutrients,and plenty of water,fresh air helps more then you think! Oh, one other thing that can really help and i do mean really…Gabapentin. Ask your doctor for it,and look it up. Ive heard its a miracle savior and may even give it a try if i do not get better! Let me explain why.. I have tapered off opiates completely and this is how the medical community suggest..
The reason you always lower dosage after 3 days is because this gives your body time to level off so too speak. It is too harsh of a drop to cut dosages every day and your body never has time to adjust properly making withdrawals very difficult.. I wish you would do some homework before posting this stuff.
Take one oxy a day along with 60 mg of loperamide. Loperamide is an over the counter opioid. Do this daily until you run out of oxy. You will soon be on loperamide only and drift slowly off of that for the next month.
PAWS post acute withdrawal syndrome can last years. Will I be physically ok if I cut my OxyContin down from 40mg daily to 20mg per day for the next 14 days. I would like to try to get off of this drug completely.
I had shingles a long time ago and suffer with neuropathy so I have been taking this pIn med a very long time. Again, will I be ok mentally and physically?
I started taking OxyContin 5. I am down to one pill a night for the last month. Even with the one pill a day I experience symptoms of withdrawal. Should I break them in half now each night for a while or just stop it all together. Marge, u will be ok! I thought the WDS were going to kill me, but I made it thru….
I know for a fact if you taper down over a two week period, the awful WDS u are expecting do not seem as bad. She had WDS but not as bad as she was prepared for.
Hi there, What is the best way to ween of of mg a day of oxycontin to nothing without with axiety and bad withdrawl symptoms? I cannot afford detox nor taking time off of work. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Started taking this for disk problems a year ago had no idea what a pain the butt it is to go off. Tried could not do it. Was the worst two days of my life! I grew dependent on it and over the years had 2 boys. I thought this was my chance to start my decend off oxycodone and opiates altogether.
According to the Opioid conversion chart, I should be taking mg of morphine daily to match my oxycodone. Is this a good step? I also know this is, in part, due to my morphine intake. No flu symptoms or anything like that. My plan is to stay on a very limited amount of morphine and then wean down off that. I first got on the Oxycodone merry-go-round in the winter of You know, when I first got the script for percodan, no oxycontin at that time, just percs, but anyway, when I first took these things, I thought I found God.
No pain, just a feeling of mass euphoria, and uber-energy. Being a depressed person, actually Dougie Downer his own self, I thought I was born again happy. Everything was great until I started to get tolerant to that dosage. Then came the abuse.
The beginning of the end. From what you have said again proves the ignorance of these highly respected physicians. These doctors are not what folks assume. Dolittle to go back to med school and get their head out of their arsehole. The pain clinic that use to give me injections and radio frequency, said I should ask my primary care doctor, for,clonidine, to help take the edge off.
I called this in to his receptionist, along with my monthly dose of oxycodone 20mg BID. I am down from 30mgs, and I am OFF oxycontine completely I went to pick up the script, since oxycodone cannot be called in, and he did not let me have the clonidine…maybe for the reasons, stated above…it is additive too. I know it is a time released version of what I am taking, but for some odd reason, it weirds me out. I feel better using my vaporizer, if I feel shakey, rather than another pill.
Good luck to everyone trying to get off or reduce their pain meds. U guys can do it!! Quitting oxycodone can be almost as big a hell as being wired to them. First, you MUST be serious as possible.
The drug absolutely takes right over your life. When I first started, nobody could tell me this fact. I learnt the hard way, like some. Some learn the even harder way…R. I could not be more serious. Try it and see for your own selves. That tolerance just seems to increase rapidly once it starts. The amount you take for the desired effect will increase and increase and increase in a very short amount of time. If you doubt what I say, and you probably will, then find out for yourselves.
Bottom line being, you cannot do this without help from people who care. Man would I be so wrong. I WAS prescribed microgram Fentanyl every 72hrs. The oxys were useless after starting Fentanyl.
I just sold the oxys after a while. Increase the patch dose and can the oxys. I unchecked the box so I do not get emails anymore. Im trying to quit useing percocets iv been taking 30 mg a day for 2 years. I have been using oxycodone for more then yrs. I never took more the prescribe and in fact took less then prescribed. And I continued on the short term same dose 5mg tabs q6 hours.
I am using pain meds for severe neropathic, fibromiagic pain. I am in severe pain all the time. Have also been using zanax. At this point the drugs are making me feel awful and I want to stop so I cut back but am suffer with inc anxiety, pain jitters palpitations upper abdominal pain, generally feel terrible. I am not improving how long for side effects to stop. What can I do different? The severity and length of the deadly withdrawals of a narcotic like oxycodone depends on two things.
My experience makes it at least 6 months of hell. Fact is, the people who write this stuff were never hooked on anything. I lived it, so I know. I have gone as long as days during that time without any. I am trying to stop, had my last 15mg last Sunday at 11am. I have been taking 10 mg Percocet 4 times a day for 7 yrs. In the past I have been able to cut back to 20 mg a day with mild withdrawal.
I take 10 mg to get back to sleep. It is very difficult to get up out of bed so I break pill in half and shower eat and put off taking other half 3 to 4 hrs later then 10 mg as late in day as possible. Would rather deal with back pain than than continue this withdrawal rat race. Me and my husband have been together 5 years and got married last year.
We dont have insurance for him and this isnt him. I have been prescribed 20MG OxyContin every 12 hours for the last 8 years. My family physician quit his private practice in favor of working at the V. Having no desire to find myself stopping cold turkey due to running out of pills, I am attempting to wean myself off it. Two weeks ago, I stopped cold turkey and withdrawal cramps were so bad that I gave in and took a tab. I went back to 20MG every 24 hours.
I have had myself down to one 20MG Oxy every 30 hours for the last seven days. I have been researching weaning myself from Oxy on the Internet. Many people, sharing their experiences, have said they cut their dose by cutting the pill and taking half of one for a while, then taking just a quarter of one…..
My main question is: Is that safe to do? I weaned myself from 40mg oxycontin per day, that I was prescribed for 8 years, on my own. It took hours. I still have discomfort in my abdomen but as bad as I was cramping, that was expected. Hi there, I have been taking mg daily for about a year now have some ruptured disks in my back and have trouble sitting and walking standing for long periods of time. Now I realize this is not safe and has effected my life ,mood,personality.
I and weening slow 10 mg a week until gone. If I do it this way will I suffer any withdrawal symptoms? I am also going to NA meeting to get support because I feel alone. This had been a horrible situation to be in, all kinds of weird side effects like later periods, depression bad. Need help on step down level. Want to ween off it but need a schedule …… Thank u. I had back surgery for ruptured discs in The surgery relieved most of my lower back pain but I ended up with severe nerve damage.
I started going to a pain mgt doctor and have been on pain meds. And on full disability. I work part time and go to school full time and I have a family to care for. My tolerance level to these meds is ridiculously high-and so am I at times. Does anyone have any advice on how to do this with my doctors help? I would really appreciate it.
Ben Johnson suggested to take loperamide to come off Oxy …. How does this help??? I have taken it for years at the prescribed dose but I think they are doing me more harm than good. About 10 days ago I just decided to cut back by 10mg on most of my doses over this period and felt less pain!!
But now all of a sudden I feel like a train hit me…. Can this have a delayed affect? I mean cuz of the way I did it? I have Chiari Malformation. It is a painful neurological condition due to the cerebellum part of the brain being too low and pushing into the spinal chord. I have been on Oxycontin and Oxycodone for 14 years, which is when I was diagnosed. I was eventually increased to 2- 30mg tablets of oxycodone times per day as needed. All of a sudden, because of outside pressure, my doctor said he has to cut me back.
This is fine, I readily accepted trying to decrease my intake. Well, he cut my script from 2- 30mg tablets times per day to mg tablet 4 times per day. I think this is too much of a cut all at once and in my opinion is irresponsible on his part..
Ive only been on the new dosage for 2 days now and already my pain has increased tremendously. The dr put me on oxycodone 10 1 every 6 hours. That was for like a month and a half. They found out I had a disc pressing my spinal cord. I had surgery 7 days ago.
They started and have kept me on a 2 10mg every 4 to 6 hours. I do have some pain if I stop along with wds shaking,aggravation.
I have dropped my dose to 2 10mg in 24 hours. I tried quoting all together but the me shaking and feeling aggravated came. Does anyone suggest what else I can do.
I thought about calling my dr and telling him that they make me mean and ask him if he wii perscribe something else. Will that help me. Thanks for any imput.
This is straining my relationship to the point she is about done. Please help me if u can. All street bought, so a mix of V, A, M, K9, etc brands. Maybe even snort one in the middle of your 5 days to enjoy a few hours of euphoria, but then back to business. About 6 weeks ago I was put onto Oxycontin 20mg twice a day and Endone 5mg twice a day due to a spinal injury. I have since had successful spinal surgery and have tried to come off Oxycontin I have weaned them down to 1.
My main issue is that since coming off the Oxycontin I have uncontrollable diarrhoea soiling myself and having to shower at least 3 times of a morning by lunch time it has stopped. Is there any way I can avoid this I am now scared to go out in public…Any help would be appreciated. I kept postponing my surgery as my husband needed me more. I started to take his Percocet for my pain as he was prescribed 5 mg and 20 mg.
I started doing them periodically right before he passed. I started out doing one a day of the 5mg maybe two of them and it was only once in a while not daily.
In Oct my company closed and I got laid off, so I was able to do more of the Percocet so I was up to mg a day times per week. I have been taking 60 mg a day for about 4 mos now and want to get off totally. They want to schedule the surgery July 22nd so that gives me 5 weeks.
How do you suggest I do it. I have pain from the problem with my stomach so I know I will always be in pain while detoxing. Seek help with a psychiatrist or MD specializing in addictionology. You may need extra help during withdrawal in the form of prescription antidepressants. I finally stopped taking the 3 Norco prescribed for breakthrough pain about two months ago. I have experienced severe loss of weight, muscle and thought process. I have withdrawn from people and can barely work.
I went to the surgeon yesterday in hopes that an operation would help the pain and somehow make it easier to get off the Oxycontin. He said that surgery is no loner a viable option. I would really appreciate your feedback!
Dr decreasing dosage by intervals. Was on schedule 6: Surgery was June 4th. In skilled nursing facility. Possibly one hour is doable. On other meds for the arthritisat this time. I took tramadol before surgery. I broke a number of bones in a bad car accident almost six years ago, and have been taking 15mg of oxycodone three times a day and wearing a 75mcg Fentanyl transdermal patch ever since. Does this make sense to anyone?
I did have these symptoms when I began taking oxy, but they went away once my body became accustomed to it. Can any of you confirm that? I just found this blog and am praying for all of you, and if I find any question I can help answer, I absolutely will. Thank you and God bless you all. I have been going to pain management and dbam on mg a day due to life shattering pain. With this dosage, i am able to do these things. I can play with my daughter, clean the house.
I dont feel high, just feel complete mobility. The doctor is now trying to switch me to Palexia Tapentadol. I tried that for a aday and it lasted about 5 hours and then I had chills, aches and severe anxiety. I was woken up by my daughter making a pillow mound on me. I stopped and went back to my normal dose of oxycodone. I will try on my own to decrease my dosage, but I feel as if stopping and swiching me to something else this close to leaving is going to have me a mess.
Should I explain this to my doctors? Bottom line, if you want to stop taking oxycodone you will have a period of withdrawal. There is no way around this. Days 1 and 2 are usually not too bad because the drug is still in your system, although you may experience some mild physical symptoms, and psychologically you may be anticipating the worst to come and be craving to continue your habit.
Days 3 and 4 are the worst and seem to last an eternity. These days are dark, joyless, with bouts of depression, weakness, intense craving for opiates, flu-like symptoms, and a general feeling of being discombobulated and extremely uncomfortable. Sweating, chills, hot flashes, and severe diarrhea are all common. Psychologically it is like a bad trip. If you make it past day 4 you have made it over the hump.
Days 5 and 6 are a little better, but still comfortless and dark, with nausea and diarrhea. Days 7 and 8 are a little better than 5 and 6, and you may feel tired, uncomfortable, and experience mild cravings for the drug.
If you can make it through those 10 days you are back to normal. Keep in mind that I am talking about daily doses that amounted anywhere from 20mg to 40mg of oxycodone a day for weeks or months at a time. If you are taking less than that you may only have a few days of mild discomfort.
If you are taking more than that then expect the withdrawal symptoms to be more intense and painful. In my experience, weaning off of them is the best strategy.
I will take 4 10mg pills for three days, then 3. Yes, you should tell your Dr. You do need support while you are going through this process. I think praying, having faith, and being persistent you can surely get off of it.
Take care and God bless good luck with everything, Jackie. I read your comment and you believe in the most powerful man in the world-God, he can do anything but we must have faith, be patient, and know that everything will be okay.
I have nerve damage irreversible due to a Dr. Will check back in a few days to see if you both got my messages. God Bless you too Susan and thanks! Good luck with everything. Dob, thank you so much for responding to my post, and for being open about your love for Jesus! I believe God loves us and brought this group together to help each other.
I thank everyone for sharing their struggles and successes, especially since I know it can be painful even to write. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis. I started taking pills per day. My left ankle was bone on bone. I had 12 procedures 3 were major surgeries. I have a total left ankle replacement.
The pain in my ankle was so bad before my ankle replacement surgery I took as many pills as I needed per day. Now I am taking 7. I am the 1st to admit I do take a pill or two a day 5 mg to relax me, and give me a quick high.
My Arthritis is starting to be under control minimal pain. I want so bad to cut back on my pain meds. Sadly, my body my brain does not know how to go without feeling high.
I have been taking these pills for 15 years! I am trying to quit on my own I have my boyfriend locking them in our safe, and have to really have pain for him to give me a pill. I sure am finding a lot of excuses to have him give me a pill. I am afraid to discuss with my Arthritis Dr. What happens when I have a bad flare, and the pain is bad? Do I take a pain pill or suffer? What is a girl to do? Do I need help outside of my boyfriend hiding my pills?? Please, tell me how to do this alone, before i do completely loose myself worse than i have already.
Im on 60 mg Percocet a day how many mg should i start to take to tapper down and how many days on thas dosage befire i tapper down again. I am so happy also to have found this group. I need all the support and others in the same predicament to share ideas with. My Lyme Doctor is leaving the state at the end of this month, leaving me high and dry with no one to treat me until I can find a new Dr.
Therefore, I must start decreasing immediately due to lack of any new prescriptions. Truly, no withdrawal symptoms? I find that hard to believe. Or, do you mean none that put me bedridden doubled over in pain?
This is the place to be, I am so sorry that you are already addicted to the oxycodone. But in different ways we all suffer from something. I just put my trust in God and went from there I did go through some withdrawal symptoms that were uncomfortable but now I am fine just like you I really needed the pain meds. I just got tired of taking medications two and three times a day to live a somewhat happy normal life.
So, it can be done, you have to have will power, pray your way through, believe in yourself and totally think about your kids. If you know that you are doing it only out of habit. TTYL we can support one another on here we are all family. I pray all is well with you. You must also be careful who you tell, the last thing you need is someone judging you right now. Stay strong and start cutting back.
Take care and God Bless! Hope all is well with you! I personally would tapper off as well, maybe like a 3,2,1 type of deal until you are off totally, something to that effect. The worse part were the heart palpations because it was kinds scary. So, I had to pray and fear for getting back on them and going through the withdrawal stage again.
The way I felt was not worth going backwards taking anything and I had insomnia like crazy. So just take your time! But I find myself now sipping sleepy time tea to relax and go to sleep. Hope that helped a little bit. Glad you got my message, it was a pleasure to hear from you on here! We must all support one another and be non-judgmental.
We all have probably heard something negative at one time or another about our lives etc. But coming here no one feels alone I wish we could start some type of support group that we have easier access to. It was hard for me to find this site again, thank God I left my email address on here. Susan you can do it! Just pray that computer rt back on lol, we all need one another, we need encouragement and support from one another. It is where my strength comes from.
I will check back in a couple of days. Do what you think is best for you, just be careful and do it when you are truly ready and when you put your mind to it. You will succeed at getting off of the percent!
Me personally, I try to do it slowly over a two week period of time, so that if you do have withdrawals they will be minimal. God bless and take care. You must stop my dear, Jesus loves you! Your children love and need you, you can do it!
First step would be to try and stay away from people who inject the drug as well. We cast it down in the name of Jesus I pray you believe in God, he will keep you and protect you. He was my Shield through my tough time and still is. I will keep you totally in my prayers! Please, think of your children and how more you will enjoy life once you are off of the medication, there is no greater high than finally being high just on pure life itself.
We are all here to support one another and we do not judge. People really care about you behind these keyboards. But, please fight the urge and take what you need instead of injecting the medication. You can do it! Stay away from situations that would cause you to inject this, you are only doing more harm to your body, my dear. And YOU can do it!!!!! Hey Deborah, I forgot just a suggestion. But see if your Dr. Take care and I pray he can refer you elsewhere before he leaves.
Get a copy of medical records as well, just in case you have to find a Dr. They will see in your chart what you need and can go from there. Sorry that you suffer as you do. God Bless talk to you later. Mrs DOB, thank you for your kind words. We are in marriage counseling and things are going well. I have a strong faith in God, and I believe He is guiding me through this. Thank you again for the responses everyone.
But getting more and more sleep as time goes on. Take care JS and glad to hear all is going well Congrats! I am grateful to all of you that participated in this BLOG. Should not be to hard to shake.
Thank You for being here offering good, wise help. Matter of fact my long term goal is to get back on Butrans Patch for pain. I was on it for several years. Just that patch and those three years, I felt closest to not having any opiates in my system. I was on oxy 20ml and ask my doctor to brought me as was my request, because I know too well what kind of withdrawal these pills have.
I will always try, and willingly experience more pain in order to be as low as I can with medication. Just as long as I can handle it and sleep. Again Thank You for being here to help me and others.
I am going through withdrawals 5 milligram taken fir pain since april I am having restless leg. Runny nose muscle spasms insomnia. I need help have 20 yrs sober.
Help I need to ween off. What will help try cold turkey not working. Cold turkey is the only way. Addiction is a billion dollar industry because they convince people they need help. Sober people get the flu and deal with it for a week you will be fine, or be a loser and decrease your dose every day and feel like trash longer.
I was doing mg a day and stopped cold turkey. The human body is capable of doing great things if you have heart. Better yet go to a meeting and sit in the poor fuckin me circle and talk about whose addiction is cooler and why your life sucks. Or go spend money and waste time at detox to be watched like a baby and come out and relapse.
I was boor in the wrong generation people make me sick. I quit cocaine and crack 6years ago and smoking7 years ago,even my drinking is now special occasions only. Good for you merve you got this. I never said it was easy but definately doable. If you can do some excercise and try to sweat because that will end it even faster.
This oxy epidemic will end because people will start to read things like I write and they will get their heads out of their asses! I have been on oxycodone for 6months.
I weaned myself off fir five days. Withdrawals got t me. My pain med out me on colinidine. Walking funny vision blured I have leg pain and arthritis. I like the way oxycodone worked. What do I do fi r my pain iv have insomnia. And still cant function. My leg pain is ridiculous. Help I need something to stop the pain and help ne sleep I was up 24 hours. Had to go to emergency room 3times. Hi my doctor has me on 30mg oxycodne. He has me taking 10 pills a day and I want to stop what is the best way for me thanks.
Cold turkey is the only way or go to a detox to be babysat come out and use. Or go sit in the poor me circle at aa. People need to grow up if you want to stop taking oxy you just stop and deal with it. I have been taking Oxycodone for fibromyalgia and arthritis pain for 6 years. I finally did some research about nerve pain, and asked my doc for Neurontin.
It has almost eliminated my pain, like a miracle, since I have been in pain for 40 years with Fibromyalgia. I am coming off the Oxycodone a little more slowly than I would like, but I am down to 0 to 1 pills a day as opposed to 3 to 5 previously. If you have tingling nerve pain or Fibromyalgia, you should be treated for nerve pain with the appropriate medication, which is not opioids.
I still need help with this as I suffer from deep depression since 12 years old. It is do hard if anyone has any story similar and has ways they cope with withdrawal please share with me please thank you heaps Jess. I have been taking Oxycodone 5mg ,for years now for pain due to multiple back surgeries. I felt better after stopping that. I have not taken it round the clock except for after surgeries. My last surgery was in For the last years I have only taken 5mg at night, sometimes taking them twice in a day when the pain is worse.
I also take 10mg Baclofen daily. I never have taken that many. I recently tried to wean myself off the Baclofen: I took a half a pill once a day for nearly 5 weeks. I thought I could get past the spasms, and pain, but it just got worse and it took weeks of my regular dosing to get any semblance of normalcy. I was told I would need them for the rest of my life but I just wish to get off them. I am now going to a pain control specialist who wants to try a different type of procedure for the low back pain, but nothing for the pain stemming from my neck.
I had a fusion of L3-L5 in , and fusion and laminectomy of C3-C7 in I have a lot of adhesions in my low back, enough that it is difficult to get a needle through it. I know that I am lucky to be walking and not a quadriplegic, but I really hate taking these meds. Is there any way I can get off these two meds? I hate that I have to take the.
I am prescribed 30mg oxycodone, 10 tablets a day. I have a severe neck injury I have been dealing with my entire life. I am 39 years old and female. I am required to go to drug treatment in Oregon. Do all drug treatment facilities require that you quit taking oxycodone cold turkey?
Do any allow you to continue taking your prescribed medication? I have severe withdraw symptoms when I stop taking my medication.
The thought of going cold turkey scares me tremendously. As well as my pain from my neck injury becomes intolerable. I have tried many other treatments for my neck and taking oxycodone is the only way that I can function with daily activities. I will one day have surgury on my neck which I also fear greatly. I am looking for a way I can fulfill my obligation of attending successfully a drug treatment program while continuing on my medication.
If anyone can help. I have had prior drug addiction issues which I have conquered by stopping cold turkey. I do not believe in 12 step programs as they put me in a place with people whom I need to avoid! Can you please advise me on the best way to manage the symptoms of withdrawal I have antidepressants available and sleeping pills and a week to get the physical part out of me I am at the point of losing everything including thoughts of suicide and worthlessness thank you any help would be much appreciated.
Keep in mind that although uncomfortable, oxycodone withdrawal is not life threatening. Here is an article you can read. It tells you everything about what to expect from opiate withdrawal, and once you know what to expect, you can be more ready: I have been taking morphine sulf. March 11, I fell and broke my left hip. My doctor decided to cut the morphine no doubt because of my fall? I see my doctor on October 1st and do hope he has additional help if he wants me cut back more. My goal is to get down to 60mg at 7am and 60mg at bedtime.
So many of the comments here have given me hope. I was on Oxycodone after my back surgery for 10 days. I am feeling dizzy at times. Dizziness varies , Is it due to stopping of Oxycodone??? It is all normal withdrawal symptom. I understand the dizziness is annoying, thats typical. I have been taking Percocet 10mg and Norco 10mg 20 days out of a month intermitintly for the past 2 years. I averaged about 10mg a day.
It was usualy 10mg Perocet OR 10mg Norco. I would like to wean off. What would a be a responsible and safe way to do so.
My physician started me on oxycodone 8 years ago. It took me a few years to determine that the pain control was not worth the side effects of the opioid and I tried to get off it several times without success.
The symptom that always stops me has been severe shoulder pain that would start in one shoulder and then progress to the other and to my knees and my entire body. I have again started a gradual tapering of the medication. Although I have been on 60 mgs. The problem is that I am now stuck on I take 5 mgs. I always have more pain at night. What do you suggest in terms of further weaning? They make you get off everything. Then feel like I have failed again. My doctor recently stopped me taking Effexor and tegretol cold turkey.
I have neuropathic leg pain from prolonged nerve compression. I had terrible withdrawal symptoms for 10 days. I have been taking 20 mg targin for a year and now have been weaned down to 5 mg but I am very worried about taking my last dose. Do you think I will have withdrawals from this low dose.
Going down from 10 to 5 mugs caused me some distress. Hi I just have a few questions. I sustained two broken legs, severely dislocated knees, broken pelvis in two places, broken lower back and a fractured skull.
In my left knee gave out at work. I had my first of dozens and dozens of surgeries. A devil dressed in an angel uniform without a shadow of a doubt these things are. Bad idea they found out. It seems to embarrass the doctors and pharmacists, and draws heat on them in a way. Today the fifth day was rough for me I wanted to take one so bad but I choose not to I stared at the pill over and over and finally just put them away.
I am having some bad withdraws the sweats and cant sleep ofcourse. I didnt really know how bad I was addicted until today and how out of control its getting. I still have a bunch of pain killers left in the medicine cabinet should i get rid of them I dont want to take anymore I want to keep going with the detox for as long as I can.
I have heard about the Thomas recipe and decided it was time. I injured my knee in and was put on Darvocet. I ended up having 2 surgeries on my knee, the last of which severed a tendon. I ended up with a severe limp which has caused sciatica. That was 4 years ago and thousands of dollars ago. Immodium takes care of the diarrhea, so I never really have a problem with that.
The reason I wrote for my visit was an injury, but when I got back there to intake I decided I was ready to quit. She gave me Vistaril, which doesnt seem to have done anything for the RLS, even though I said over and over and over again that it is the RLS that is going to cause me to relapse. The RN said that too much Potassium can be bad for your heart, but I dont know how much is too much. One thing she said to me has been coming back to me over and over again. There are a LOT of posts on this site.
Over a week here. Was sluggish and my mind frame is great. I was worried about physical addiction. The wd was to the restroom a lot and a lil slow but other than that I have taken ambien for sleep. I did ok as far as chills etc. Hope you who read this are as well: I quit for a month, then relapsed…quit again for 2 month, then relapsed….. One would think I wouldnt want to go throught this…..
I know what your thinkin…. SO…here I go again. I have a support system in place this time. I was shocked at how caring and excepting my friend has been, she has seen my decline and was the one who pullled me up short when i needed it the most. Good luck folks, I ve been on this shitty ride for too long. This is my 3rd day, actually at 4pm I will be 72 hrs clean.
I feel like hell….. Snowman — sorry — just saw your post and. I am thinkin this is the time that it sticks for you…you will be in my prayers and I hope by this time you are healing and kneeling and are on your way to recovery. I am still in the fear of withdrawal. But I have decided to come clean with my pain management Dr.
I am on an extremely limited income and am saving pennies to get everything for thomas Recipe. About how much does everything cost. Right now I am taking only enough to allow me to get out of bed for a couple minutes. Right now I am getting weaker and intestines are cramping, Because of my age I am worried about a stoke etc. Has anyone used pot during withdrawal? If so does it help at all? What should I mention to my Dr? How long will it take to get the physical part over with?
Hey everyone great blog and very helpful. I am at 21 hours since my last vic and was doing 8 a day of mg for 13 months. I know it will get worse the next several days and I had to detox once before.
Its amazing how many of us go through the same issue of not wanting to stop because of the 5 day or so withdrawl process. We look to each other for help and get it.
However 13 months of doing this every day and 5 days to clean up. I am hopeful that today being Thursday and by Monday i should be feeling better. Lots of people rooting for me and this experience just amazes me. How we always seems to find the vicodin to continue the madness but not willing to put this much effort into a realtionship or business.
Those who are on the fence you have to just say its only 5 days of your life and when its over life will be so much greater. I know what I am capable off off the drugs and I look forward with the strength of God to allow me to get there next week.
Good luck to all of you. Its been almost 3 years now since I quit cold turkey next month will be 3 years. I posted here when I was withdrawing and the support was great, I come back about once or twice a year to remind me of where I was and to let others know it is possible to be happy and to live your life again.
You can do it! Honey and cinnamon, Valerian and bananas w a multi vitamin. As good as suboxone. I will be back to post some of my testome…..? Also a mg tab of MSM at 6: The GABA and the tea promote a sense of relaxation so you can find sleep.
After all this the main item in your tool box has to be a relationship with your support system and a strong Faith in Christ, who will get you through.
He will never judge you, only forgive you when you ask for it. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it. We all fall prey to these substances due to injuries,accidents, or health chalenges. Those are the things Common to Man. The But here is that if we will be in relationship with HIM, He will provide the way out from under the oppression of the substance and the health challenge that precipitated the use of the substances we need to be rid of.
It only requires faith that HE is, and that HE will. You all are an encouragement to so many. Humble Holy Roller and all who read here: I hope you made it. The inability to sleep and restless legs went away after about 4 days. Going to try some of the herbal suggestions.
