getting off Hydrocodone

Hi everyone, I have heard that taking Valerian root tea and Emerg C 4 times a day helps in the first 3 days  of stopping cold turkey of Hydrocodone.. Has anyone else heard or taken this?

Hi I think I talked to you the other day. I stopped today taking Hydrocone for the first time in 3 years today. Thank you for your input. Do you know if Green tea and Melatonin (for sleep) is any help?

The melatonin is a good one for sleep - I also like diphenhydramine (benadryl) and think its a shade stronger.....I prefer the valerian capsules over the tea..but thats just me - keep asking if you have questions - someone on this forum can probably either answer you or point you to an answer.....good luck - it can be done....

there are also some other supps that help...be sure u r taking a good B complex...some of the amino acids are great too... a cal/mag supp at night...5htp, methionone are some other sleep aids but not as direct as valerian....GABA also helps....i dont take melatonin as i drag in the morning after i take it...my son has the same problem so it must be genetic...melatonin is also a good anti-aging supp and helps many with sleep...it will put me to sleep but i have to take it early in the evening or i feel it in the morning even when i take 1/2 a tab....i am weird when it comes to things that make u sleepy tho...everything knocks me out!

All of these folks have answered your question, and given good, additional advice. Bear in mind, there is no magic cure for withdrawals. You must be ready for at least a few bad days, at the best. Get psyched up to quit, know you'll have a battle, and don't ever forget that you really want to quit. A few day, a week, is no time, really keep that in mind, and do this thing!
