What are some tips to going through vicodin detox?

Help & support: Craving can be intense - human support (12 step meetings, counseling, groups) is critical. Achiness can be treated with hot packs, hot showers, tylenol or motrin, diarrhea with pepto bismol or kaopectate. Avoidance of caffeine, a healthy diet also help. Sleep problems can respond to chamomille tea. Your doctor can prescribe meds to help as well that are not opiates to treat symptoms. Good luck. ...Read more

Detox?: Detox is only the first step, and it seems you've already been through this at least twice. You seem to have some very persistent addictions, and may or may not be staying involved with outpatient recovery programs after discharge. This is the hardest part -- but also the most ongoing thing that will save your life. The big question is: are you willing to stop using? If so, see your doctor. ...Read more

I'm going through Zoloft withdrawal and I take Vicodin. Will taking Vicodin stop or slow the recovery process from coming off of Zoloft?

No: These two medications act on the body in separate ways, so the use of Vicodin is not recommended for symptoms of withdrawal from Zoloft. I would recommend that you discuss this with the Doctor who prescribed the Zoloft so that you can be appropriately weaned off the Zoloft, if it is indicated. ...Read more

Is it normal to experience crazy legs, very emotional and weird in stomach and back going through day 12 of withdrawals for vicodin?

Yes: Depending on the length of time of use and the amount used of vicodin withdrawals can persist for weeks and even months, they tend to get less severe with time and may wax and wane. That is one reason relapse is very high with opiates because the discomfort lasts. Hang in there and seek medical help, medications can help to get through , but other support is also often neccessary to avoid relapse. ...Read more

What do you suggest if my husband has been snorting vicodin for a while will he go back?

Beats me: the question should be whether he is getting any treatment for his problem. If the answer to that is no, the odds are quite good that he will go back to it. Relapse rates in opioid abusers not in treatment are over 90%. People use painkillers because of either physical or psychological pain. That psychological pain does not go away by itself - it needs counseling and therapy. Suggest Alanon for u ...Read more
