Diclofenac and hydrocodone

Common Questions and Answers about Diclofenac and hydrocodone


Avatar f tn But if your like me, you probably want all you can to help with detoxing, so.... Try diclofenac for the aches associated with dt's if you can get it. I don't know if it will help through the night (which for me is the worst) but I know I'm able to sit at my desk all day without hammering a hole in the ground with my foot when I take it. It's a non-steroid anti-inflamatory like ibprofren except stonger. It's non narcotic and not an opiat. It will not make you feel any different (drowsy etc.
Avatar m tn Ask your doctor to do a liver function test (AST/ALT and ALP) while everyday on paracetamol and see for yourself. On the other hand, morphine, hydro/oxycodone (without paracetamol) in the doses you're taking, are highly unlikely to cause any liver toxicity.
Avatar n tn 5 mg of hydrocodone which is the opioid (narcotic) component and 325 mg of acetaminophen (tylenol). Diclofenac is a strong NSAID (Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug). These two medications are in totally different classes...one is a opioid and the other is an NSAID. Strictly based on pharmacology, the hydrocodone/acetaminophen is stronger. However, these two medicines should really not be compared in that fashion as they each work better than the other for different types of ailments.
Avatar f tn I use glucosamine, chondroitin, cod liver oil and ensure my diet contains oily fish. TENS doesn't work, heat does work to a degree and so I try to utilise this as much as possible, hydrotherapy is beneficial (but not to the bank balance!) and I also use swimming as a method of controlling pain (though I do suffer afterwards). So if anyone has any bright ideas be the natural remedies or prescribed then please let me know!
1684282 tn?1505701570 I am becoming somewhat frustrated with the way a lot of my colleagues practice medicine. Disenchanted, angry would be the other words that could be used. We all get ostensibly that same training and all of us are supposedly in it to help our patients. So, how come have I been getting so many letters lately on my addiction forum from desperate people unable to quit taking the tramadol pills that their own kind doctors have so freely prescribed for them?
Avatar f tn He says it's not SJ problems because occasionally the pain radiates to my left side, it's low back pain, but does want to see mri files just to be sure. He gives me more hydrocodone, lower dose, and a different anti-inflammatory, and a PT order. Then, the weirdest thing happens, the pain KEEPS LESSENING. And I think, how is this happening? How is low back pain so bad you are sobbing in the ER, then it just starts to go away a month later?!?! But I soooo want him to be right.
Avatar f tn I have to go to pain management and take 60 mg of Cymbalta for nerve pain (really nasty to get on and worse getting off but has stopped my restless leg syndrome), diclofenac nsaid, hydrocodone and extended release morphine. And I'm still always in pain! I also get epidurals for lower back and hip/leg pain and am testing for nerve bloc in neck area. I took valtrex for over a year and it didn't help me. What saved me when working and when I'm not super sick is extended release adderall.
1047234 tn?1253547296 I take pain meds, and I WILL NOT APOLOGIZE FOR THAT TO ANYBODY I am like you TIRED OF PAIN I also take Vyvanse which is a time released stimulant, and Hydrocodone, and also Lyrica and I have Xanx on hand for anxiety, which is always present with pain, but I don't like to take, it makes me tired. I still have pain, but I finally have a pretty good regiment that works for me. The Vyvanse and Lyrica are expensive, but I have a discount card for both and the insurance pays too, my co-pay is $25.
Avatar f tn In such cases it is very important to note any other conditions like stress, confusion, memory loss, alcohol, drug, and medication history (hydrocodone) is also important. As it is evident that hydrocodone might have led to hallucinations. I suggest you to take prescribed dosages otherwise can take non-opioid analgesics like ibuprofen, diclofenac etc. I suggest you to consult physician. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn I am still taking hydrocodone for pain 4x a day and still experiencing pain. I have iced, done all excercises, go to Physical therapy ever since my surgery. I am still experiencing pain in both legs on a regular basis. I just don't get it. I excercise when I need to, rest, elevate, ice. I have done it all and have added swimming at the gym the last month. My doctor says sorry for your pain and has x-rayed 2x to see if everything was okay but still in pain.
1387175 tn?1326404597 Norco has 10 mg of hydrocodone and Vicodin ES has 7.5 mg of hydrocodone. The second number is the amount of tylenol (acetaminophen) that is in the pill. Norco has 325 mg of tylenol and Vicodin ES has 750 mg of tylenol. The Vicodin ES has more tylenol, which is not good for you at all. The max amount of tylenol that can taken safely every 4-6 hours is 1,000 mg. So you should not take more than 1,000 mg of tylenol in a 4 hour period.
5639849 tn?1372350483 Many people have become addicted, and the w/ds are bad, some say worse than opiates like hydrocodone, oxycodone, etc. Many states have made tramadol a scheduled narcotic, and many more are following suit. They also have an antidepressant property (they effect the neurotransmitter GABA) which can make the emotional aspect of w/d even more severe. If you have pain that needs addressed, I would ask for alternatives, IMO.
1216742 tn?1334155711 Currently I had my doctor change my pain medication ( was previously on hydrocodone) becuase it made me feel wired and didn't help as much with the pain anymore. She has out me on Ultram (Tramadol). It is a non-narco pain med and has been working pretty well for me. You may want to check it out. I hope you are able to find something to help control the pain.
Avatar m tn I feel like I can't enjoy life to it's full potential and nothing is fun. After many failed therapies and medicines such as Tramadol, Diclofenac, most NSAIDs, anti-depressants (Cymbalta, Zoloft), Lyrica, steroid injections (Kenalog, Depo Medrol), and Skelaxin, I believe it's time to see a pain specialist, someone who know what they're talking about when it comes to pain.
16785591 tn?1451600281 When this happens rather than take a narco which is what I was doing a year ago, I now get up, walk around come downstairs do 10 or 20 minutes on my cross trainer that is get exercise and go back up and go to sleep. Last night for example at 3:30 AM woke up again at 630 and again at 8 AM. At 8 AM came downstairs where I am now.
Avatar n tn He knew I was allready on hydrocodone, and obviously it wasn't working...and neurotin? What a joke! So for me...I will not go back there. It's supposed to help with pain...not make you worse.
Avatar f tn Hi, welcome to the forum, Nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), including aspirin, diclofenac and ibuprofen, are associated with an allergic adverse effects, ranging from mild rash to life-threatening allergic reactions. In such cases it becomes difficult to select appropriate pain killer. The next we usually recommend is paracetamol (you are allergic to this drug too). The reason for such allergy is cross reactivity which is seen in this class of drugs.
Avatar f tn when needed for chronic pain that after years of dosage tolerance and changes begins to get to a point where you've realized you've become dependent on a drug that used to help you function, but now either requires going to a stronger pain med or putting on the brakes and starting anew...figuring out just how bad life would be without Hydrocodone & the occasional Oxycodone during flare-ups, when it doesn't seem to be all that grand with it...still in a lot of pain...
Avatar m tn P then proscribed me Diclofenac (Anti-imflamatary) at the dose of 50 mg to be taken 3 times a day and Co-codamol at the dose of 30/500 (Pain Killers) two tablets to be taken four times a day.In Febuary 2008 my G.
Avatar f tn Hoping to find a Lyme Literate doctor in NOrth georgia or TN. But as of right now they are treating me with diclofenac 10 days on and 10 days off, neurontins for nerve pain due to nerve damage, and the wonderfully addictive Hydrocodone for bone pain that they can not explain and do not know why I am having this pain because my blood work says I am normal. Just love doctors!!!!!!!!
981443 tn?1250119402 Specifically, the apparent extension of the duration of effect of the IR tablets (all other things being equal, oxymorphone has a duration of action of 5 to 8 hours in most patients) versus similar drugs in commonly used immediate-release forms -- for example Dilaudid (hydromorphone), morphine, Vilan(nicomorphine), Paramorfan (dihydromorphine) as well as prodrugs for this group such as hydrocodone, nicocodeine, codeine, dihydrocodeine and others -- is often attributed to a marginal extended-re
Avatar f tn I certainly hope and pray that this works for you! If you have to go back to hydrocodone, please don't beat yourself up over it. Living in constant and debilitating pain, is no life at all. I don't think anyone has tried harder than you! Try to stay positive, and pray that this latest treatment will work!
Avatar m tn Last Dr I saw (a rheumatologist, a couple weeks ago) switched me from Ibuprophen to Diclofenac Sodiun, and renewed my RX for Lortab, said to wait another month or so, and if I'm still not better he'll do a bone scan. I haven't taken the Lortab for a couple days (it seems to cloud my mind), and taking plain Tylenol (1000mg 3 or 4 times/day) - seems to be about as effective.
Avatar n tn I also take Lyrica and diclofenac sodium. These and the pain meds are for a bad back. I was told that I need a three level fusion. Nice huh!
Avatar f tn The pain specialist basically told me my only options were more medication (which he put me on--Methocarbomol and Diclofenac) or the epidural shots. I turned down the shots after reading all over the internet that they often times don't work.. and when they do, they don't last very long. I saw the surgeon and I don't know what I was expecting, but right away he reccomended the surgery (though he wants me to get an MRI).
Avatar n tn aspirin (ASA), diclofenac (Voltaren), and sulindac (Clinoril). Therefore, individuals with liver disease should avoid using these NSAIDs. Older women seem to be particularly susceptible to the hepatotoxicity of NSAIDs, and are best advised to avoid NSAIDs altogether.
Avatar m tn I am a long-term migraine sufferer and have been taking pain killers now for about two years (hydrocodone 5/500). A lot of the time I will take 1500 mgs of acetaminophen in one dose. Does anyone know if this will be detrimental to my liver? I never EVER exceed the 4000mg limit in 24 hours, but I will often take 6 pills in one day, that is 1500 mgs of acetaminophen, then 1500 mgs again twelve hours later if necessary. I am very strict about the time in between each dose.
Avatar n tn I started taking Vicoprofen 4-5 weeks ago and I would take 1 in the morning and 1 at night and during the day if I was in pain I would take a little extra motrin. My neurologist gave it to me but when I ran out she did not want to give me anymore,, but she promiced she would. I was also on Robaxin which my neurologist said was a much better muscle relaxer then Flexaril.
