Did anyone else feel angry all the time on Vicodin (4 or 5 per day) and why do I want it if it makes me feel angry...I am very confused and have no idea why I am scared. I have been taking them for 4 years now and never missed a day.
Withdrawing from opiates can be hellish indeed, yet I bet when it is over you will feel like yourself again. Please google The Thomas Recipe for a list of over the counter and rx meds you may needs with in withdrawal. You may also need to google Post Acute Withdrawal Syndrome (opiates) for an explanation of what is happening to brain chemistry when opiate cessation begins. Serotonin, norepinephrine, dopamine and those wonderful feel good endorphines are all out of whack right now, so you may feel anxious, depressed or angry. If you do feel depressed/anxious please see your doctor because depression is nothing to muck about with. I went cold turkey off prescribed OxyContin, and I became horribly depressed, I went on an antidepressant for a short time and it helped greatly.
