Question hydro w/d

I have just gone, within the last few weeks from being on Ultram for 5 years, average of 10/day to generic vicoprofen, now average of 8-10/day. I know what the w/ds are from Ultram, and it is a terrible drug to detox from, but was wondering what the w/ds will be from the vicoprofen, any one have a clue? Is it anything like the w/ds from Ultram? i.e. restless leg, constant tickle in my throat especially at night? Please help as i want to get off the merry go round.

Re: hydro w/d

Bobby;

I found the W/D from Ultram to be similar in nature to Hydro but the big difference is the detox process seems to take longer and it may be just a bit more sever in the W/D area. But the biggest thing for me is it seems like its so much longer to get through W/d as it lingers for more days then when I was W/D from Hydro.

Regardless if you don't take action now the 8-10 per day will escalate to 20-30 per day and I can almost guarantee it will happen. Tolerance is a terrible thing!

Good luck and just attack it.

phil

Re: hydro w/d

I'm going through w/ds right now and I can tell you that they are not so terrible considering the alternative which is losing my entire family again and DEATH. Keep your eye on the prize and you can do it! At least I can say one day clean and working on day 2. It is taking every fiber of my being, but it's better than swallowing handfuls of pills all the time!

Re: hydro w/d

In my opinion it'll be easier to kick the vicoprofen habit...you haven't been taking them that long right? If I understand correctly, they were prescribed to help ease you through the ultram withdrawals? It'll be bad but not nearly that bad. By day four you should be around 80 percent. That restless leg or the 'kicks' you're talking about never really happened for me with vikes...only til I got strung out on morph. Hang strong...you should be ok.

Re: hydro w/d

I also don't think that your WDs will be quite as intense with the VP as they were with the ultram.But i just wanted to mention that the ibuprofen in the vP can be very hard on your kidneys when taken above the normal dosage for an extended period of time,i am very glad that you are trying hard to get off of it.Your kidneys will thank you!Hang in there, Marcia
