How effective is hydrocodone for alleviating the physical, psychological, and emotional discomfort when coming down off amphetamine?
I would like to hear advice mainly from people who know from experience, not advice based on something you read on erowid or wikipedia.
How well do opiates work compared to alcohol or benzos? I have used both alcohol and benzos for amphetamine comedowns in the past with moderate success - both work, but it seemed that benzos worked better for me (because alcohol doesn't exactly help with the dehydration you are suffering through).
My thoughts tend to be very disorganized when coming down; might hydrocodone just add fuel to the fire? I tend to have very bizarre thought processes when nodding on hydrocodone, as well as closed eye visuals which can be uncomfortable and disturbing. But that usually only happens when I'm hungover from drinking and taking hydro.
Adderall also makes my muscles very weak, and for lack of a better way of describing it, "dried out" feeling. Hydrocodone feels like it sometimes does the same thing.
I know a lot of people stand by opiates as a medicine of choice for coming down of amphetamine, but the last thing i want to do is accidentally make the comedown worse. It's miserable enough coming down off adderall, I don't want to accidentally throw myself into a 6 hour episode of dizzy nauseating torture.
Thanks for any responses
