Here's the thing... Its my husbands fist day of detox from vicodin... he's got shivers, cramps, cold sweats... doesnt look too good... apparently, he's been taking 5-6 a day, for close to 3 months now... first of all, let me say that this whole thing came as a shock to me, however, i'm trying to find ways to cope and deal, and help him the best way i can... i know its only OUR first day, and i'm sure its gonna get worse before it gets better, but i was wondering if there's something "organic" i can do for him to make the time go by faster, and to ease the process... i've given him some valerian drops, making him some chamomile tea.. what else??? Someone mentioned ( i read other posts) that Immodium helps???
Any advise is welcome...
Thanks in advance...
Vicodin Detox... Need advice?
Immodium AD helps a lot and you should get him some asap. 3 months is not a long time so he should recover very quickly. With the short time he's been on the hydrocodone (vicodin,norco,hydros ect) there won't be any chemical changes in his brain and body which is a good thing. Are you sure he's only been abusing for 3 months as he shouldn't really be to sick especially with using a relitively weak drug as hydrocodone. Anyway, try and keep him comfortable with tylenol, tylenol pm for sleep. Try and stay away from valium ,xanax ect as they are even more addictive. It should ber over by the 5 th day..Good luck and tell him to hang in there. I went 23 years abusing everyday and I can tell you that this stuff when abused will wreck your life....
Look on this site for the Thomas Recipe, I think some health food stores make up a kit of all the ingredients and imodium is one of them. call around and see if they have it. They have other things they may recommend as well. Excercise will help when he can get up and walk outside. Best of luck to you both.
