Common Questions and Answers about Can i take hydrocodone with naproxen


507619 tn?1211849450 I get migraines too and I also have a whole host of things wrong with my back. I don't take pain medication. Unless I am in a car accident or the pain is so bad that I would rather DIE than feel it for one more second, I will NOT take them. Believe me, I know how bad migraines can get. I can't focus, or watch TV because it hurts. I get sick to my stomach and everything hurts, like there's a little man inside my head tying to slam his way out with a seldge hammer.
2126606 tn?1346348724 Having receiving patients for hydrocodone dependency for many years, I seen firsthand how dangerous this drug can be, which is why I am pleased to see the FDA taking steps to help prevent abuse. As you may already know, hydrocodone drugs can be extremely unsafe if not used properly, but unfortunately many doctors are prescribing these painkillers unnecessarily.
Avatar n tn How many pills do you have left? If you can safely take Aleve/naproxen (the chemical name for Aleve), it's a better choice than Tylenol, because Aleve is an anti-inflammatory drug as well as a pain reliever. Before doing this, call your doctor and tell him/her all the drugs you are currently on, and get their OK first. Let us know how things are going with you! We care.
Avatar n tn I am sleepy, not wanting to do anything and in pain unless I take this medication, can I be hooked on this stuff and if so how do I get off it?
Avatar n tn I would say to stay away from Naproxen like NYG said since it isn't good for the liver. I struggled with what pain pills to take during tx and finally have stuck with T3. There is only 325mg of Tylenol in one, which is better than an Extra Strength tylenol and the codeine has always worked best for me. If you can get it without the Tylenol, that would be great. Let me know if you can since I would also prefer not to take the Tylenol.
Avatar m tn I'm cutting down gradually but damn am I cranky and I haven't been careful enough about making sure I have enough ibuprofen or naproxen to keep real pain at bay, I guess I need to put them on my regular schedule and not wait 'till I hurt. Can subutex work with methadone or is it just a no-go? He (the clown) seemed to think that it would give the methadone time to work its way out of my system and that subutex would be easier to get off of since it's shorter acting.
Avatar m tn Can anyone tell me if any of the following drugs can give a false positive for Hydrocodone or Oxycontin. The following drugs are all i take, No more and no less. Fentanyl 50mcg. Tylenol3, Tylenol, Norflex, Ambien,Seroquel, Cymbalta, Ibuprofen and Naproxen. PLEASE HELP!!!!
Avatar n tn Can anyone tell me what to do? Is there anything else I can take over the counter to stop the withdrawl effects immediately!?
Avatar f tn I have to make it work this time as it is interfering with my life in a major way. I am at hour 44 but at hour 34 I back slid with 1mg of IV dilaudid. I got complete relief for a few hours and a script for tramadol. (I've used trams before to lessen the wds in the beginning and it's always helped.) I took 2 50mg trams at hour 37 and then another two at hour 41. This has made it comfortable so far with minimal symptoms. I was able to finnally eat something after 2 days of nothing.
Avatar f tn Im now 32 weeks and completely off of the Vicodin. I still have pain but Tylenol helps a little bit. And I Used to Take Naproxen. I never took it while pregnant cause As soon as i found out I knew that tylenol was the only thing thats really ok to take. As far as my doctor knows The baby is growing healthy and strong heartbeat. Im gaining weight just like im supposed to. So far so good. I do have the urges to take vicodin but i know its for the better for me and my baby if i just dont.
Avatar m tn I am sure if I gave in to those withdrawal symptoms I would be right there with them taking 10 to 20 a day but I just wouldn't feel right doing that (plus I'm only alotted so many and I can't afford, nor do I want to get involved in, buying from the street). I guess one thing I can take from this is that I don't have a very addictive tendency, I quit smoking years ago with very little problem.
86664 tn?1291561395 I held off till week 8 and took my shot that day then the vicodin 1/2 then 1/2 4 hours later. I am very stingy with them since I don't have a lot, I doubt if I could get hooked. Besides, it's the pain relief I'm after, not a high.
483733 tn?1326802046 What do you have to do? I friggin hate having my specialist out of town. I guess I'll have to try my family doctor who isn't supposed to be treating me for this. Just feel like screaming and crying with frustration and pain.
Avatar n tn How do you make someone see they have a problem with the pain meds. I have told his dr. but he does not listen to me. I don't think the dr. should keep giving someone pain med for the rest of his life!
5273118 tn?1365824746 My doctor prescribed me naproxen for the pain. I tried to explain to him it's just not enough. I had been prescribed hydrocodone since the 7th grade and taken it until I was a senior in high school. After I had my laparoscopy I felt so much better, but now the pain is back and it's even worse. I'm not sure what to do...Help?
Avatar f tn This is a very serious injury. I take Naproxen and was on Hydrocodone a good while. Now I have a small supply of Tramadol. It doesn't touch the pain, really, and besides, I don't want any drug problems. Never had any and don't want to start now. I take the Tramadol sparingly, and don't think the surgeon would renew it if I asked. Which I won't, since it hardly works. I'm posting this here because I know many MSers live in constant pain too. My MS pain has been nothing compared to this.
Avatar f tn I had almost gone an entire week without using any and was going to start phasing out the Naproxen when I fell down; finally, I have been using Naproxen twice a day (morning/night) since I got injured. So with that in mind, can I be dependent or addicted if I don't use them everyday or in the same amounts every day?
Avatar f tn I imagine just the fact that I still have them in my system it is just keeping me from completly feeling the effects of the drug leaving. I dont feel any pain relief when I take them now . Can anyone let me know what to expect as I taper down even more? ( I am taking Clonodine, Naproxen, Anti-depressants and tapering down from Robaxin along with the Hydrocodone). Thanks so much for any info anyone has for me.
Avatar f tn When I first started taking it and occasionally now I get headaches from the hydrocodone. I have to take Ibuprofen with the hydrocodone sometimes. Like you it does not work on my headaches. I too find myself craving more sweets. I didn't use to touch them. I was never a sweet eater until the pain became extreme and I was prescribed hydrocodone. I don't know if it is because of the medication or because I use them as a comfort food.
Avatar n tn I am no longer in my pain clinic, been on Methadone for over 5 years. Thank God I was only taking 30 mg daily. In the past two days I have cut my dose to 15 mg per day. I feel the pain already in my legs and back. I did take some Neurotin to help with the nerve pain, and believe me it is helping. I am worried about this post withdrawal you talk about. I have a full time job and don't know how I'm going to do it with no sleep and energy crash.
Avatar n tn What should I prepare myself for tonight? I have read Thomas's recipe and will seek what I can. I truly want to quit the opiate habit for good, but I don't want to be in pain. So I think I am going to go with a suggested cortisone shot (the doc hasn't read my MRI for my back with me yet, I requested the results myself). Any advice please help... will this get worse? From what I see, it seems that people are feeling better around this day.
Avatar n tn i have had some small results with aceamtaphine extra strength, i have had no results with asprin. i have used ultram and ultracet, the only thing i found it good for was withdrawls from vikes and perc's. i really don't like the way ultram makes me feel. so i never got hooked on it. thanks for your input.
356518 tn?1322267242 I would say that the pain is likely nowhere near as bad as some of you experience, but with such a long lasting injury I can really sympathize with the members here. At this point, I take 500 mg aspirin or Tylenol or Aleve three to four nights a week, in order to sleep. This is a big improvement over the early years, when nothing helped. Or should I say, when the doctors didn't seem to know what to do for me.
Avatar m tn If you would feel more comfortable talking privately please message me and I will try to help you as best as I can. I've had multiple gyn surgeries and issues. I will certainly try to help or point you in the direction of someone who can.
Avatar n tn I take Procrit every wk now and never would have thought I would be so tired. Plus last time I posted I ended up with flu and sinus infection and it just seems like I got weaker. I thought maybe it had something to do with the kidney disease, but I hear alot of you saying the same way I'm feeling so I guess I'm on track, This will be wk 8 of 12, still no sides, other than weak. Anyway everyone take care.
Avatar n tn hey glenn-- hope i can help. I am a dentist, not an MD, but i have done ALOT of reding on neck back shoulder pain syndromes after the traditional medical/surgical community failed me-- and i fixed this nastiness on my own. so- i may be able to help. tell me about your pain--what kind, where, when is it the worst, anything that makes it better.. and what you do, your habits, work etc-- on the computer alot?? also are you overweight, in shape, athletic etc....
Avatar m tn Hey stranger, Im sorry to hear you are having so much difficulty with this! There are lots of things I could tell you as to why you are needing more, but the main thing is.... Because we are addicts man! You cant look at your feats as disappointments. Thats part of your addiction talking and will only set you back! You know how ducks stick their heads under the water and come back up and shake the water off like nothing happened?
Avatar n tn I think the answer to first question should be yes and second should be no. But now that I am off the hydrocodone, I don't want to take it ever again and I know that is totally unrealistic b/c I am in so much pain. My daughter has activities with friends tonight and I am in so much pain I need a good cry before I can drive her to her friend's house.
Avatar f tn I want to know what can i do to leave these 503's alone? I also want to know how long it takes codeine to get out of your system? I really need them for enegry at work?
1337431 tn?1280959499 My doctor thinks I was taking the meds to feel good, not so much for the pain because I was taking too many of them. I was taking so many because I would take them until my back pain was tolorable. If I had to take ten a day or more than I would. I work in retail, you can only imagine how I would get home. I have to change my job too, with this economy, you have to take what you can.... Well, wish me luck in everything....
