How long and how severe withdrawal will be depends on how much you were taking, how long you were on it, the specific type of hydrocodone, etc. Your blood pressure is high, being unable to walk without staggering is not safe and I suggest you seek medical attention.
Am a nurse, you are severely hypertensive you need to go to your nearest hospital emergency.
I'm so relieved you've had your high BP addressed and are feeling better! Soon you will see this was all so worth it.
To everyone out there that have gone through detox and are going through. I'm on day 15!!! I can hardly believe I've gone this far and I'm starting to feel better but still have moments I get very nauseous. I requested 3 Ambien's from my Dr. even though she was willing to give me 20! I took one the first night and slept 9 hours! Last night I took my 2nd one and didn't sleep one minute. Finally at 4 am I decided to lie down. I fell asleep and slept till 8. I don't understand why the Ambien didn't work but when I woke up I thought I was going to vomit! I was so sick to my stomach for at least 1 1/2 hours. I've lost 11 pounds even though I have consistently tried to eat something 3 times a day. One sad note is my dog! She has slept behind my back since I got her as a puppy. She is now 8. I've never loved an animal like I love her. For some reason she refused to lay in bed with me and kept coming in the front room and laid in a chair or on her bed. She would not come to bed so I let her be. I'm assuming it is because I wasn't getting sleep and she wasn't either. That is the only reason I think. She did want to get in bed with me when I laid down and slept from 4 am until 8 am this morning which surprised me. I'm sure all of this information is immaterial, but I'll say one thing. This has been hell on earth but it does get better. I still have once in a while diarrhea (about 4 times a day) and nausea (occasionally) and I sneeze all the time. My body still hurts sometimes bad sometimes just a little, but in spite of it all I can now say all I went through was worth it. I'm so blessed to have found this web site and can't thank all of you enough for your kind words of encouragement and just knowing we fought the same battle and we all win! Wishing you the best in all you do and I will check in periodically to see how everyone is doing.
