Oh, and I would love to go on xanax, it is such an easy way to feel good again, but isn't it addictive? My gastro dr gave me a prescription for it years ago (it is supposed to really help crohn's disease) but I threw it out bc dh said it would be way too addictive and I would never be able to come off of it. Is it more addictive than valium or clonazapam?
I've taken vicodin off and on for my wicked TMJ and I never had any problems coming off of it EXCEPT when I had just had wisdom teeth surgery and took it all the time for 3 weeks (I also took percocet just after the surgery but later switched to vicodin). Ime, you have to take a drug round the clock to get addicted, but YMMV. I'm not even talking about abusing your script, but like, if it says you can take it every six hours, taking it every six hours around the clock every day could cause addiction. And even then, it wasn't horrific. I just felt uncomfortable and had the runs for 2 days. It's not like in the movies where hardcore addicts are coming off their drugs, kwim? If you take meds responsibly and always follow your doctor's orders, addiction should be minimized.
