the yawning is another part of the whole deal....it wont stay around long.
what to expect: found on another website: i would assume oc and hydrocoden withdrawal are very much the same. anyone correct me if im wrong. thanks
perpetually being tired
joints and muscles in constant pain
u know in the long run the hydro will hurt the copd more than it will help it..i know it seems opposite right now but u need to wait it out..and agree to c a dr and spend $ for the office visit..well worth it just to check ur lungs out...but narcotics impair breathing in the real world...and if someone is in respiratory distress, the last thing u do is give them narcotics cos a side effect is lowering respirations,,,,talk tu ur dr..an expectorant or a guaifesin drug may help/// a DXM drug/all r otc (over the counter)...but the dr visit will be worth it..addiction to narcotics is not the preferred/nor any type of treatment for copd..hang tight..let go of any spider webs u may have protecting ur brain that u may still need those destructive lil puppies...be safe and congrats on ur decision to be free
Congrats on getting clean and on the new job! Yes the yawning is a withdrawl symptom as is watering eyes and runny nose for me anyway. You are doing great!
Thank you both so much for your replies and for your support! You two are the first who seem to know and understand about the cough. I never could find out anything about it anywhere else! Despite being in pain right now, I can't tell you how relieved (almost giddy) I feel knowing that somebody else recognizes this chronic coughing as a withdrawal symptom.
IBKleen, my COPD mostly manifests itself as bronchitis and asthma. Also, I apologize for asking that question and I won't ask anything else about it. Please know that I wasn't asking to try to beat anything and then continue use.
I will consult both a pharmacist and a doctor.
Oh, by the way - is persistent yawning a withdrawal symptom as well?
The pills should be out of you in a few days, tops. About the cough you're going to have to talk to your doctor and see what he says. Nothing otc ever seams to work. The withdrawals won't last more than a week and then maybe your cough will be better when you have detoxed
Hi and Welcome!
I know all to well what you are going through. I too have COPD, which for me manifests itself as asthma and emphysema. I am on medication for it and I don't know if there is anything OTC you can take to relieve the discomfort. I suggest that you talk with your pharmacist and see if they cannot help you. The cough should subside within a few days, but I also suggest that you see your doctor. Pay the $60, or whatever it is, office visit cost and ask for samples. Explain that you do not have insurance and they may help you. Please hang in there.
As far as the drug test question: We are not to answer those questions here but since you are making an effort to get clean I will simply say that it will be out of your system by then. Please do not ask about that any further.
Hope to see you stick around. It will get better. Keep posting and you will find great support here.
I just wanted to add that I have no health insurance at the moment.
