After 4 months, I took a Vicodin 10/325

On Tuesday I had the worst migraine I have had in a very long time and I could not get in to see my doctor so I caved and went to my sister for some Vicodin. She gave me two 10/325's of which I took one immediately. While it did alleviate the pain almost immediately, it made me feel queasy, floaty and completely out of control. I hated the sensation! I had constant dry mouth and often was startled awake by my own gagging. My nightmares were so bad my husband was alarmed for me and I ended up tossing the second pill into the toilet with relish!

I am trying to figure out what the hell I saw in that drug in the first place. My husband says my reaction was so strong because of the high dosage after not having any Vicodin in my system for close to five months now. I didn't have withdrawals or cravings afterward and I am looking at this as a learning/warning experience and will never swallow another Vicodin again.

I understand where you're coming from and good for you.  Your husband was correct when he said you weren't used to that dosage after being off for so long.  But, there may come a time when you need to take meds again.  With your wisdom, hopefully you can control the meds instead of the other way around.

Good Luck

I would check with your doctor since you have migraines.  There are non narcotic meds out there that may work for you.  Hope you are feeling better~~~sara
