this is my second time trying to quit and went back to taking them because of that side effect. i am scared i have been taking them for a little over 2 years following a surgery each year i am done with the surgerys as far as i know and dont want to be on them any more. i found myself going into the er once a month to get something for pain so i would not go threw this. i no longer go there because they treat me bad now. i went in for the withdraws 2 days ago and they treated me bad and just sent me on my way so i started taking them again. i need as much help as i can get. i am just scared of dien or something bad happening to me i have 3 wonderfull children i want to be here for.

Opiate withdrawal can raise blood pressure and heart rate. You need to see a doctor that will help you get off vicodin. There is a medication called clonodine (sp) or catapres that helps immensley during withdrawal, it helps with perspiring and helps with blood pressure and heart rate. Clonidine comes in a patch formula and also pills.
If you do not get in to see a doctor about this you will be chasing those pills, becoming a slave to them eventually. They most certainly can wreck a life, and have wrecked many lives.
Please see a doc that specializes in addiction. You can successfully get yourself off of vicodin.
Have you tried a slow taper? If you taper off of vics, you may not have high bp nor a fast heart rate.
Best wishes to you
