... Best of luck w/ your taper & your health problems. I'm having similar problems getting off vicadin, except I'm not having physical symptoms, just cravings mostly. I don't know that much about your illness, but from what you said you periodically have to go on a bunch of meds... well tramadol, vicadin, etc. are not good for more than 2 weeks or so. Your doc prolly thinks... (13 replies)

Vicadin withdrawal

... Hello:) Unfortunately w/ds are inevitable for all of us. We want them to be better, to go away, to ease, and to HURRY but the truth is we just have to face them. They will get better when they get better. I still ask everyday is today the day I will feel better & I havent had any roxys in 29 days or sub in 19. As a bunch of wise people have told me it does get better but your... (2 replies)
... sounds to me like you need to get off the pain meds - at least for a few weeks to get your head straight & stop taking them when you don't need 'em for pain. I've never taken suboxone, but people say it's as hard to get off of as the pain pills. i'm struggling too after years of pain meds for chronic back pain. the pain is much less severe now & i'm having a hard time...

Tylenol 3 is codeine w/ acetaminophen. percocet is oxycodone w/ acetaminophen. the only difference I've noticed is that for me personally I don't get as much of the "high" feeling from codeine that I do from hydrocodone & oxycodone, but maybe that's just me. Codeine is a natural opiate, while the others are chemically synthesized. I have chronic back pain and IBS also, and... (6 replies)
... I've not had any problems with withdrawals yet - at most I was doing 50 mg hydrocodone/day. My problems come from so many different areas, that's what makes it hard. I have panic disorder, plus just generalized anxiety. And depression. And chronic pain (that's way better right now than it's been in years, hence the opportunity to abuse painkillers). And I'm a single mom,... (5 replies)
