Hydrocodone Side Effects
That sounds exactly like the problem my mom and I have. Neither of us can take it without being bedridden with nausea and swimming head.

I was on those for bout 2 years after a surgery went wrong and I was left with severe permanent nerve damage . I didnt want anything stronger out of concern for dependency issues and never had those side effects , at all , initially you feel euphoric but it goes way and still treats the pain the worst I ever had was constipation , which is easily treated .

hydrocodone suicide
Personally, having attempted suicide more than once, even though this was over ten years, your friend suffered BEFORE he thought about suicide. Depression is agonizing, and many people suffer from this horrible disorder/disease/condition for a long period of time. You stated that he had stopped taking his medication. I have been on medication for depression, when necessary, for 27 years. I would like to point out that each person is unique, each person's depression is different, and each person

Sorry for your loss. I believe hydrocodone is a useful drug but after having taking it for over 10
yrs I have so many problems I can't deal with them. Suddenly, all the side effects started. I see a

No, he most likely did not feel any pain. Possibly an upset stomach, but he was probably unconscious before even an upset stomach developed. I'm so sorry for your loss

An opioid overdose is probably the LEAST painful and unpleasant way to die in existence. He probably felt bliss for a period followed by unconsciousness and respiratory failure.
MLC  |  July 15, 2014
As a teen I tried to kill myself by taking 26 10mg hydrocodone. I didn't feel anything, no pain. Mostly nausea from the o.d. And hours of hallucinations. But no pain.
Hope this helps.

weed isn't so bad. the pills can be. if you really don't want to be on either, invest in a hobby. fill up your time with something you love to do. for me it's reading and writing, but for you it might be a sport or visual arts or idk. find something you love or find someone you love and invest your time in them. it's all about distractions. hope you're doing well.

You may have become deficient in nutrition from being on drugs and poor diet. You probably need to see a nutritionist to help get you straightened out. Maybe try nutrition drinks.

You are stronger than any addiction. You should seek help from a professional. Talk to your parents, a counselor or priest. But whatever you do stay clean. You have done it thus far don't turn back now.

I am relatively certain no one asked for advice such as since you are sick or in pain shouldn't I stop taking medicine. You don't have ADHD or ADD, and likely aren't in even mild pain, and you obviously no nothing about medicine except someone prescribed it to you probably as a courtesy due to minor acute injury or minor surgery you had which in no way qualifies you to offer advice. Instead, you ape the fashion "say no to drugs"; quality of life is a question you address often in AHDD & ADD qua

Talk to the doctor who prescribed the pills. There are a lot of pain medications and people react differently to them. There could be a different class of medication or even dosage of the same medication that don't cause these side effects. The important thing is to talk to your doctor.

Sleep paralysis is a side effect of narcotics. It is a less likely side effect but does happen more than you think.
I love how people try to diagnose you with narcolepsy over the Internet.

its called sleep paralysis. look it up, happens to me every night. its side effects from narcolepsy.

the reason you cant move after a dream is because while you are sleeping you body makes chemicals so you cant move. when you wake up from a dream you are just feeling the chemicals in your body. it had nothing to do with the meds.

Zoloft Weightloss and Abilify
I started taking Zoloft about 3 weeks ago. I have been suffering with severe, medical depression, social anxiety and feelings of dread. I have good reasons to be depressed, as my Mom died of cancer 4 years ago, and I was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer 2 years ago. Now I'm post menopausal at 39 and just can't cope. Immediately after taking Zoloft I began to feel good. Depression had become physically debilitating and I gained a lot I weight. I have also noticed a lack of desire for food, and have

Zoloft saved my life. Outside of my wonderful husband it is the thing in life I am most grateful for. Much better than Prozac where I always felt medicated.It is not for everyone but if doc recommends it, I would try it. Just pay attention and give it some time and if you have any side effects do not wait to address them...do it immediately.

When I started on Clonidine I pretty much became narcoleptic for a period of a few hours about 1.5-2 hours after taking it. There were times I'd literally fall asleep standing up at work, my coworkers kept taking pictures of me, haha. It got better after a couple weeks, but it was tough to work my way through. I'm on 1mg AM, 1mg PM. I work overnights and loved the AM pill as it'd knock me right out and I'd sleep great! Been on about 6 months now and it doesn't affect me in that regard at

I had the same issue when withdrawing from my fentanyl patches. Discuss this concern with your doctor as I did. I had the dose reduced to .1 mg from .2 mg. I don't know what breaking in half will do. It's an immediate release pill so it might leech too much medicine in your system too fast like with many other meds. Once I got used to the .1, I went back up to .2 (I also have high blood pressure). It also works like a charm getting rid of the stinging in my feet due to a spinal injury. G
KJ  |  January 24, 2014
Clonidine lowers your blood pressure, so you can become light headed. You probably have solved this, but if not try half and then have a few hours later.

Pain management
Opiate/Opiod withdrawal cannot kill you, only alcohol and benzodiazepine withdrawal are the only 2 that can. So remember, it may suck for a week, being the worst 2-3 days after you've stopped. But, I'd recommend quitting cold turkey. You'll be completely fine, I promise. Find ways to occupy your time, walking if you can, or reading. You'll have insomnia for 2-3 nights but it will subside. You'll feel much better when you're not depending upon narcotics for your existence. You will be much healt
