Restless Legs than Arms now/ Vicodin Withdrawal
Hello:)

I am 27yrs old and have had anxiety issues my whole life. I took a vicodin 750 from my friend and noticed it made my anxiety go away while I was one it so I like it alot. I was take 2 sometimes 2 1/2 a day for a month straight. Its this long enough to go through a withdrawal. This past week ive been feeling really weird. I stopped on Apr.10 (Tuesday) ( I believe) and the following weekened I had really bad mood swings, and chills. That seems to have gone away, but now I havent slept in three days, restless legs, and arms. I feel like I want to rip my arms and legs off at night. I can maybe catch two hours of sleep right when I come home from work, and that's about it. Does this sound like Vicodin withdrawal? I didnt think you could get addicted in one month. I dont have any cravings for it. Any advise? I really want to sleep. I can take xanax, benerdyl, melatonin and still not sleep. Its crazy.

Thanks!

Also, forgot to mention, I found a half a vicodin after searching my bedroom floor for at two in the morning, ( this was two days ago) and I slept like a baby. That kinda sparked the idea that my body is probably dependent on it. Does this sound right?

yep..very addictive...just don't use and the symptoms will get better. talk to your doctor or find a new one if your prescribed meds are not helping your anxiety. Taking something like opiates without a script is playing with disaster. Even taking as prescribed...you're gonna get addicted, so if you can do without, best to do without! Stay away from Tramadol, too. Highly touted as safe, but not good at all. Best of luck!

tHATS NOT MUCH VIC'S BUT IT'S POSSIBLE. WE ARE ALL DIFFERENT.. DRINK LOTS OF WATER AND IF IT CONTINUES FOR 30 DAYS ( I KNOW THATS ALONG TIME.) USE XANAX AS PRESCRIBED AND BEST OF LUCK.. I THINK YOUR PROBLEM IS DEEPER IF ANXIETY WAS WHY YOU STARTED.  IF YOU CAN SEE A DOC.. YOUR FRIEND RICK
