Day1 - I have been taking Norco aka Vicodin for 8 months straight. Today I ran out. My pharmacy will not refill my script. They said it's too early. I can get a refill on the 4th of April. Would it even be worth me getting a refill? I really do go through pain everyday of my life. I have severe back back , and now my joints have been a huge issue for the past 3 weeks. I have no insurance, so I've just been getting refiil after refill from my doctors. It's been 12 hrs. since my last dose. I am already sweating and aching all over. I'm trying to keep myself busy. I guess my biggest concern would be my daughter. I'm nursing her. My family doctor said that I could while taking Norco. I'm afraid that she's going to experience W/D. I am so scared.
honestly i don't know there is alot mixed information on this very subject keep an eye out for overly fussy behavior .I don't know a whole lot you will be able to do if she does but comfort her threw , This is just my personal opinion If it were me i would not breast feed while taking hydro but as i said that is only my opinion and i am not a doctor ....
well, I am not sure aboutr the whole nursing thing, but what i can tell you is this. If you are serious about wanting to get off pills--NO it would not be worth picking up your meds on the 4th.by the 4th you would be over all phsical w/ds and sould already by that point getting in a lil better emotional place.Alot of us deal with real pain, however if you are running out of your meds weeks early-that is enough to show you have a prob-I hope you will be able to resist the urge to get your meds on the 4th.
Just wanted to post that my baby's doing well.....as am I. I do have serious chronic pain, but have asked to be put on different meds. I had to go to 3 different doctors before I could find one that would help me.
Congratulations on the new bundle of joy! I nursed for longer than I want to talk about . I took hydro's most of the time and pumped and dumped the milk. My OB said they were ok to take for a short period of time. In the hospital they gave me percs and they knew I was nursing and not pumping and dumping so I think for a short time is ok. My daughter had no w/ds from the percs .I took them for about 2 weeks after she was born.
