Q: I have been addicted to hydrocodone for approximately three years and feel it's time to do something, mostly because now I believe I don't have much control. I used to think I could stop it at any time without trouble. My last dose was yesterday morning, and last night and today are tough. My minimum dose a day was two pills, and my maximum was six. My symptoms are sweating, crawling out of my skin, sleeplessness, excessive yawning, headaches, other flu-like symptoms and anxiety to name a few. I started this drug when I lost my job three years ago and was under a lot of stress. I suffer from anxiety attacks, and since this drug addiction, for three years, I have not had an attack.
