Truly worried today

Today was a very tough day with pain medication. I have probably taken 10 or 12 norco 5/325 today and I am really scared right now. I don't know how to defeat this crazy drug and I am so scared of overdosing. I am currently feel like crap with a headache, sweating, tingling of the body and dizzy. Not sure if I'm overdosing right now or what? I need to do something and I need to do it quick. I almost feel like I should call the paramedics cause I'm so worried about how I feel right now! Not sure what to do anymore.

My advice is if you are not feeling right go to the ER. How many do you take a day?

Nothing changes if nothing changes. If you are serious about quitting then you have to make it happen. Tell your doctor that you are an addict and abusing your pain meds. Cut out all sources. Go and flush what pills you have left down the toilet. Go to NA or AA meetings. Check into addiction counseling. Tell your family and friends that you are an addict. It helps to have someone to be accountable to. Basically quit talking about it and do something about it. I know that sounds harsh, but as addicts we will use every excuse imaginable to talk ourselves out of quitting. Instead of getting on here and posting every day how many pills you took and how scared you are, why don't you do something positive towards your recovery? We can support you, encourage you, and give you advice, but at some point it comes down to you. We can't do this for you. Please know that I am saying all of this because I have been where you are. If you keep taking large doses of Tylenol, you will start having problems. The amount of Hydrocodone that you are taking is fairly minimal compared to what most folks on here take. Just buckle up and jump my friend. You can do this! But like I said, nothing changes if nothing changes. Let's make that change!! We are here for you and cheering you along. Flush the pills!!

Get to the ER  .   It sounds like you are having a reaction to too much acetaminophen and that is not something to trifle with

You HAVE to stop doing this, and YES you need to be seen by a medical professional.  This is SO out of control, and your daily posts are evidence of just that.  PLEASE seek the help you so desperately need - and let us know how you are doing.

Your right I think a lot of my worrying is from thinking about it so much. Gotta relax and take one day at a time!

The problem now is this...although you feel a little better now, your disease is in,control and you will take more pills until the night is over or you become unconscious. I have seen this happen and it's incredible. A person who can't even walk or speak well taking another couple of pills.  

I think you should go to the ER. Are you by yourself?
