Following drugs dangerous when combined with Hyrdrocodone/Vicodin (with APA)

Depakote
Cambral
Cymbalta
Wellbutrin XL
Seroquel (Haven't taken any yet for the day)

I don't normally take Vicodin for fun, but I was feeling so incredibly terrible sober. I didn't want to run back into my old habits (DXM, Alcohol, Weed), so I tried some Vicodin. Aight, that's my excuse ...

Now here's the problem. I take a lot of meds for depression. Do the ones I mentioned react negatively with Vicodin. I only took two pills like ten minutes ago.

lol Windy!


We're a recovery from all substances site. Not, which can I use and how site. Call or go see your doctor, and when you're really ready to quit, we'll be here for you.

Gee, Cleansing ...

I guess you're gonna find out, ain'tcha?

As much as I love to *play* doctor on this site sometimes ... you're talking about too many different things at once ... I doubt if an ACTUAL doctor would know the answer to this, especially not offhand.

But I will say this: if these are all prescribed to you, and you are taking them in the doses they are prescribed to you at, and they all come from the SAME doctor ... you *should be* fine.

If any of those are NOT the case, then I would do some research on drug-interactions on the internet, going through each one on the list and kinda, you know, looking for the OTHER ones on the list.

But it's probably a good idea to do that research, you know, BEFORE you mix them in your body. Just for future reference.

One more thing ... as I explained to you on your other thread about DXM, it is basically an opiate drug when taken in large (enough to get you high) quantities. Therefore, putting the other crap you're mixing it with aside, you are, by taking vicodin, feeding the EXACT SAME monkey as you're feeding with DXM.

And it is my STRONG suspicion that if you make it ANY KIND of a habit, you are going to end up VERY VERY SORRY about having started using vicodin for this purpose.

I cannot possibly overstate how likely it is that you will become addicted to vicodin if you adopt the attitude that you can cavalierly use it as a substitute for, or consider it somehow a 'lesser evil', than DXM.

Again, setting aside the whole 'mixing' thing and the inherent risk there, taking vicodin for a DXM addiction is like taking shots of Everclear to help you with your Beer addiction my friend.

Or here, allow me to make just a nominal change to your own words above, and you tell me how much sense this makes...

I didn't want to run back into my old habits (DXM, Alcohol, Weed), so I tried some Heroin. Aight, that's my excuse ...

Sound like an extreme change to you?

Trust me ... it ain't!

"Terribly" Sober....??

Maybe you should try going to therapy or upping your support.




Maybe you should hit an NA meeting and call your doctor, at the very least go to a pharmacy and tell them what you took, or at least call. Not good to be mixing like that, it says so right on your wellbutrin bottle

So since he has said he needs help and was actually asking a question I just love the support he has recieved here......Yes Vicodin will hurt you when combining these meds, This recovery thread is here for recovery, and since you are dealing with depression I know that you already know that depression hurts.....the cymbalta is also for pain as well as the welbutrin. I would suggest that you get rid of the vicodin or at least let your dr KNOW wht you are taking and see if he can help you out, it sounds as if all of your meds are working against each other rather than together, and as ALWAYS please come back we all are here for some sort of problem or another but it is hard for ppl to try and help you AFTER the fact! Have a great night and try and get to a meeting honey they really help!

AND KEEP ON POSTING IT HELPS!

I'm sorry but your post is very frustrating...

You talk about those pills as if they are candy. There are so many out there who don't have insurance, can't get into a doctor, etc. etc. etc. You have the meds, the doctor and the help, but you feel 'terribly' sober so you feel the need to take Vicodin on top of them, and then come to a recovery board and ask about the reactions?
And you think you did good because you didn't take DXM, alcohol, or Weed.

Sorry but you need to Wake Up, before you kill yourself.

Okay I'm done. I hope you don't hurt yourself & hope you make a call to help yourself. Good luck to you.

It's hard to support someone when you know what they are taking may kill them.
He's coming here asking for support on what he's taking.

Not to get off.

There is a big difference.

We each have our own limits on what we can support people on.

You can support him if you'd like.
I do support him, but in a different way than you.
But I still support him. I just don't want to see him die.

I've lost 4 good friends on this board. I've cried more than I can describe losing friends on this board. I have my limits, my boundaries.
So please respect them.

It's NOT that I don't care. I DO care, more than I could ever explain.

Exclamation Combination of dangerous drugs with Vicodin....

Hi Cleansing,

Are you sure you are prescribed all of those medications you have listed? Plus you "JUST TOOK TWO VICODIN." ?????

I would be so scared I would go to sleep and not wake up again. Any one of those medications you listed are dangerous if not taken strictly as prescribed. :morning

That is why there are so many accidental over-doses in the medical community. True some addicts make it their job to find out what goes with what and still be safe. Many of the addicts on the Methodone Program have found they can take a Benzo....with the methodone and get a high simular to Heroin. Is that what you are looking for....a "HIGH" with a prescription drug? :praying is what you need to do.

I would talk to a pharmacist, they are knowledgable, most often..more so than doctors about med combonations.

That's it......someone ask a question, AN ADDICT, that needs help.....maybe not thinking clearly and some of the shi__y answers.

I am so angry right now!

How does someone who is struggling with recovery go from reading the sad reality of addiction (the sticky post of those that didn't make it) to, "and when you're ready to quit we'll be here for you"? I believe, cleansing, may be a member for...oh let's see...a month.

Cleansing....I think calling a drug hotline or calling your doctor as soon as possible is probably best.

There is a reason SR has a policy to

Quote:
Please do not give medical advice, medication advice, or psychiatric advice.
threads usually end up like this or worse.

We are not doctors, and when medical questions are asked it is hard for all us, we all want to help, we all want to give the right answers, we all want to make sure someone doesn't die, but we don't have those answers.

whether or not you or anyone else want to believe it, ALL of us on this forum care. Every answer here has come from a place of caring.

We are a Recovery forum, not a Medical forum.
