Will Hydrocodone help with Oxycodone withdrawal?
Both hydrocodone and oxycodone are opiates. You did not go through withdrawal because you have not stopped taking opiates, you just changed the type of opiate. I hope you feel better soon!
You won't have any withdrawals if you take the hydro for a short period of time. It won't be as strong as the oxycodone, but it will keep you from experiencing the side effects you are fearing. This is one of my worst fears as well (long term chronic pain patient). I have seen over the last six months, a lot of pharmacies holding scripts back more than 30 days. Even with low doses of opiates everything is now very slow because of all the precautionary (and very necessary) steps taken to keep abuse down. Hopefully your pharmacy is faster than mine (turnaround is sometimes 35+ days). take care.
i would ask a doctor or a pharnnacist this question
