When I first started it calmed my anxiety. Now if I even take two my anxiety get really high. Am I the only one that happens to? Tomorrow I go down to 1 pill 2x a day for my taper so I'm excited because I'm sick of popping xanax to deal with all this anxiety. I'm don't think the anxiety will raise because I'm tapering and the less I willl have in my system

I have so much anxiety all the time, i have had it since i was 12 years old. I get if I take my pain meds, I get when I don't take them. I think I could right a book about how to deal with anxiety by now I have done so much research on how to deal with it, I even made sure there was nothing medically wrong with that could cause the anxiety and of course there wasn't. It is all in my head. Oh how fun life is eh??!!!!!
Hydrocodone is definitely a personality changer indeed. It gave me anxiety in a weird form. Since I have been using, (about 4 years) my family around me says I have become more bitter, angry, and less tolerable. Just having to fight with those stupid pills I think gave me anxiety. I NEVER had anxiety issues before, and NEVER used xanax until I started eating lots of Hydros. Even if you google hydrocodone, you will find anxiety or mood changes part of the side effects.
I've been taking Hydrocodone for past five months now, and I'm trying to stop, I take it for severe back pain, and when I stop taking it, I get really bad anxiety and have trouble sleeping. Sometimes at work my anxiety is so bad, i have trouble functioning at work during the day.
