vicodin no longer gives me the energy feel good feeling
Even though I have upped the dose I no longer get the euphoria from the med which is why I'm quitting. I actually feel sick now when I take them and very anxious. Does anyone else feel so terrible on them? I used to feel endless energy and very confident  and like I could do it all but now I take them to just ward off the w/d's which will be coming in about 24hrs. I just never heard anyone say these make them feel anxiety or crappy and would like others opinions.



Thanks

Agreed, I stopped getting the " energy buzz" from them a long time ago. I continued to take them and increase the dose to get that feeling back. It never did come back. I just took more and wasted more money, time, liver and my life. I am on day 4 of none. My husband helped me wean down over the course of two weeks until I was taking two a day. Then none. Do I miss it?? Yea. Do I want some now, yea. Am I going to get any??? NO WAY!!! I don't think I could go through the withdrawls again. Besides, my man IS awesome btu everyone has their limits :)

I agree I could take 8 at a time and still get nothing but a bunch of un needed anxiety. I'm sure this will help with the psychological w/d because I had a hard time stopping when I was still getting a high from them now I know I can't get that high or energy burst than it's like why bother. I just wish that ment w/d was easier but I don't think that's gonna happen but I do really think it will help with my recovery. I will only take vicodin and won't even try another narcotic because I don't wnat to create new addictions. So if I ever need it for pain for my migraines at least I know I won't get euphoria from it.

I have a strange reaction to vicodin now. I was prescribed vicodin about 5 years ago and id get a euphoric relaxed and nice to everyone feeling. About a year ago the doctor put me back on them but now every time I take them for my chronic pain, I start arguments with everyone, everything annoys and bothers me. Im in a horrible mood and instead of that relaxed feeling im overly energized cleaning everything. Its so weird! I must have some type of reaction to it now.
