Would like to ween myself off, also would like to know what it will do to my tolerance, as I weened myself off for a week, down to 1 pill a day, then took 4 within a couple of hours(thought the pills weren't working) and then thought i was gonna be sick.

OK, hydrocodone withdrawal, for me, peaks at about day three and then I feel chilled and achey for about another week after that. I used to be addicted to opiates. The first time I got addicted, it took me about six months of steady use before I noticed a huge increase in tolorance and physical dependence. However, after I went through withdrawal (and was clean for a few months) I started using opiates again. That second time it only took me about a week before my tolorance was huge and I was physically dependent. So, if you quit and start again, it may not be very long before you are back where you were. Is the hydrocodone mixed with acetaminophen? I've never gotten sick on morphine or heroin, but I've puked my guts out on Vicodan and Lorcet (I think from the acetaminophen in it). Are you taking Lorcet? I think those have like 650 or 680 mg of Tylonol in each pill. That's definitely enough to make me puke!

Good luck
