Re: how do I taper off hydrocodone? help
ya know whats strange about hydrocodone, is some people can have zero withdrawals which is me. Then some can with only taking 2-3 day for a few weeks will. I would suggest if you really need them for pain and don't wan to screw things up with your Doc, Then tough it out and taper with what you have, it's nowhere near as bad as the Morphine,Oxycontin,and other things alot of us on this board take, so the withdrawals will be minimal and manageable. If you have a handful even 6 you could have the willpower to weather the storm, so long as there is no high blood pressure probs or anything, Hot baths,good food,exercise,pepto Imodium if ya get the s...s but I doubt it, but we all are different,Hydrocodone is on the bottom of the ladder, so try not to freak out tooo bad not having it, just maybe take 1 tomorrow and see if you are sick or showing symtoms and maybe half to calm the cravings. till it lowers in your system, which is really overnight with the short acting meds, well I do wish you luck in this. We all care here so don't cause yourself this problem anymore, would be the best advice Take Care get back please let us know how your handling it Tony
