I have been taking vicodin ES for the past three months about 4-5 per day for migraines. I stopped cold turkey 3 days ago and haven't been able to sleep. I have the worst restless leg syndrome. Does anyone know how long this will last?
Hi Italy - Since you haven't been on them for too long, it should be 7-10 days max, as Laurie says. Blood pressure meds help w/ the withdrawal (clonidine patch), and maybe your Dr. could give you a few Benzos. to get through, if you are having anxiety (legs), no sleep, nausea, sweats. The great news is, on that day that the symptoms are first gone, I felt like a new person... almost like a light switch. And, its not long now for you. You're almost there. Good luck!
