Iv been taking hydrocodone for almost 3 and xanax for about 8 months. It started out with the hydrocodone about 40-60 mgs aday (for the first year) then i went to about 60-80 mgs aday (affter about a year and 6 months) and its been about that much untell about 6 months ago when i started taking xanax (about .5-1 mgs of xanax ) on them same dose's... But about 3 months i broke up with my Girlfriend, and to numb the pain iv been taking alot more then i ever have befor!!! Around 110-160 mgs of hydrocodone / 1.5-2 mgs of xanax aday and sumtimes more then that!!! I no Im going to far but i need to know if i stay at this high dose am i going to die? Or is there any way to lower my tolerance so i can still get high? And I do have a docter that gives me my pills, I got shot 2 times and i do have alot of pain and the only way to get true work every day with out being in hella pain is to take my pain killers, i do not have a scrip for xanax i get them off the streets! I have alot of stress!!! any help on both questions? I know i said alot but i have a good buzzzzzz!!! lol
I feel for you. You have mental and physical pain. I do not think you are going to die on those levels because of your tolerance but you never know. you I think can see the trend that you are needing more and more and then with the breakup with your girl your stress went up but also your coping skills turned to the drugs. To manage your pain you go to the doctor but are you being truthfull about the pills. I dont want to come down hard on you, i have been there i just hate to see people go down a road they dont have to. the hydrocondone can be tough on your liver especially if it contains the acetaminophen and at that doses you are taking very high levels( i dont know if you take the 5mg, or the 7.5mg) but you must be popping over 10 pills of the hydro a day. Talk to your doc about alternative narcotics that last longer in the bod and without the tylenol. The xanax off the streets are another thing.its the most addictive benzo and I think you said you have a good buzzzzzzzzz. I think deep down you know what you have to do. I think this is the start. one addiction for pain is managable with your doctor and then only you can decide to tell or not to tell about the xanax. I will say this and correct myself the combo of the two can be deadly especially when you for get how much you take and boom you go to neverland like Michael Jackson(God rest his Soul). I hoped this helped some, I am not judging you, We have a common bond, I am 42 and went down the road but somehow made it back. I am on subs for addiction and it can work for pain and a very low dose of xanax for panic disorder. I am honest with my doctor and therapist(BY THE WAY MAY BE GOOD FOR YOU) and he writes me a weeks worth at a time. good luck and remember hang in there and surround yourself with good people who truly care about you and you can write me anytime.
the prescribed max dose for hydro is 4 pills a day (so im guessing you get hydro 10/750) so that alone should be tapered down... you will be in pain and you will go through withdrawls if you want to taper while still taking the edge off somewhat. if you cant control this you may need rehab, therapy, and/or someone that doesnt use drugs that can give you the correct amount frequently. the xan dose isnt too high for someone that uses iv done 4mg the first time i took it (BE WARNED opiates + benzos + alc are all depressants and have a very high chance to kill you since every substance you introduce will MULTIPLY the effects of others). your trying to stay high but it might be good to have a reality check and realise this is hurting your body and chances are, the people around you.
with this dose yes you can die in my opinion (depending on your tollerance but since your taking that much now you will need to take even more when that stops working (narcotics= builds dependancy which includes tollerance and there is a full addiction going here))
