Hydrocodone and headaches

Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone and headaches

vicodin

Avatar m tn I also wonder if the culprit could possibly be one of your other medications? Most definitely the medications you're on could all be on the list of possible causes. The one that stands out to me the most, even more so than the Klonopin is the hydrocodone. How long have you been on the hydrocodone, and how much do you take, and how often? As I'm sure you know, opioid medications come with tolerance and dependency issues, which could be causing you w/d symptoms.
Avatar n tn I just had surgery and took hydrocodone. I am on synthroid and cytomel for my thyroid. No problems noted. Hydrocodone on the other hand is a whole new set of problems if you start taking those every day. No thanks.....I would look at a different avenue. The narcotic pain meds are too addictive physically and psychologically.
Avatar f tn ve been having headaches come and go and my mom and aunt have told me to take care of myself as if I were preg until I find out. But is there something I can take that won't harm the baby (if pregnant?) To get rid of my headaches.
Avatar m tn I was prescribed Mupirocin for a non-healing nasal ulcer. I used it for about 2 days then woke up with a bad headache today from the get go. I've tried everything I can. I have taken Tylenol TWICE, Hydrocodone with Acetaminophen in it, nasal spray, a Breathe Right nasal strip (since I do have severe sinus problems.) NOTHING has worked or given any relief.
Avatar f tn I would try the Tylenol and maybe a heating pad for your neck and headaches. I also see a chiropractor and simply by getting adjustments I have less headaches, back, and neck pain myself without having to take so many pills. It really does help a lot.
492921 tn?1321289896 I know how addictive hydrocodone is. I have taken it for years here and there I don't like it and most the time it just sits in my cabinet. I only take it when the pain gets severe. It's Sunday and my Dr never really gets back to you in a timely fashion on the weekends. I guess I'll just wait to talk to him in the morning after I see my chiropractor.
Avatar m tn Around time of headache onset, dr adjusted Zoloft to 150mg and instructed that pt could alternate 100/150mg daily. After several weeks of headaches pt saw dr again and was given rx for Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen 7.5/325mg for pain and a CT scan was ordered. CT revealed no abnormalities. Nighttime truck driver as occupation. Headaches onset after waking in AM but peak at night while working. Usually takes Hydrocodone late at night while working.
507619 tn?1211845850 Only you know what you can and can't manage. But if you want to stop using narcotics, you have no choice but to go another route for the migraines. You should discuss alternate treatments with your doctor. I just hate to see you lose your clean time, and court a relapse by using.
Avatar f tn I did not fill the perscription. I went back again today for a routine check up and he did another x-ray and it turns out i have another hole i did not see on the top molar. He said its up to me if i want to have it pulled or not. I want to but at the same time the pain i was in from not filling the perscription was HORRIBLE! Im worried about taking the pain meds again this far in my pregnancy, Im currently 25 weeks. Will this effect my baby if i do take the meds?
Avatar f tn I too had never had headaches at all, well maybe with a Hang over..lol I had these come and go for months and did not understand, until I talked with the Doc. He also said, as the Brain tries to adjust back, after we remove these Stims, it can send false singles to the Body. Just give it some more time. IF it continues then differently go talk with your Dr. I just think it is part of the detox stage and there are many stages we go through. It is not over in just a week or 2.
Avatar f tn I was diagnoised at 14 with server migraines and chronic headaches. Everyday i would have to lie in bed with no lights and tv volume on low. Worst times ever. got a little better but Didnt know how my head felt without no pains till barely a year and a half ago. Now im pregnant (19) and its gotten a little bad. I just massage my temples or my husband does. I massage my head. Take warm showers and try my best to ignore it. Ladies any advice will helpp!!
Avatar m tn I have been suffering from daily headaches (morning to night) since August of 2007. They are NOT migranes. I have had doctors try and treat these headaches with migrane medications, also with medications that are for tension headaches, neither of which in my opinion are the source of the problem. It's very frustrating. I have compiled a list of everything that has been tried.
988378 tn?1250687186 Well I decided to yesterday (my first day off of Hydros) and it was all well until night time and extreme naseau, sweating, and headaches occured. Should I lay off of my ADHD meds (amphetamine) while trying to break my other addiction. I am 25 and I am just going cold turkey, basically from 20 a day to nothing. Any advice would be great. Thank you.
798548 tn?1237503653 I was on hydrocodone lowering the dose as I went along in recovery and am weaning off. Today was my first day I was able to go without my low dose of hydrocodone and so far no headache as long as I drink caffiene. If i do not drink caffiene the headaches come back. I do not want to stay on the hydrocodone too long in fear of becoming addicted. Can anyone give me any suggestions.
Avatar f tn t take now. My Dr prescribed me fiorocet and hydrocodone for when I start to feel them coming on. My migraines did seem a bit calmer during first trimester, got a little hard to manage during the beginning of 2nd and now in 3rd are back to almost non existent. Good luck!
Avatar f tn The buorenorphine can cause rebound headaches. I took this a looong time ago for headaches, and it would help for a little while, then the headache would come back full force. I think most opiates can cause these rebound headaches. I would call the doc and see if he has any further recommendations. Again congrats to you!
Avatar f tn s one of the stronger OTC pain meds and it helped enormously for my headaches. And the body aches. And I took it in the morning so the caffeine in this med helped to get me going for the day. And I made sure I took it only in the morning so it wouldn't affect my sleep. Might be worth a shot? :) p.s. and i agree with soaddicted, hot baths, and sitting in a dark room also helps alot!
Avatar n tn 5 mg Hydrocodone tablets (with 200 mg ibuprofen). Having read this website and many others like it...I am pretty worried....I wouldn't be taking any more than 1 pill a day at the most...I wouldn't allow myself too, I would be too scared...I am just not a big medications guy...I don't like taking them...Can any of you give me some sort of advice on how not to become addicted? Also, how addictive is it?
Avatar n tn My psychiatrist was the one who wouldn’t get me off what he put me on. Well here I am in February 2020 and quitting hydrocodone again. Was trying to quit Xanax which I only take .5 in the morning and .5 in the evening. The pain in my body got worse, so I started taking hydrocodone again, Dr knows, only allow myself one pill a day of .5 or 7.5. I’ve decided I really don’t want this poison in my body anymore. On day 2 of quitting and having headaches, peeing a lot, cold/hot sweats, nightmares.
Avatar f tn Im 15 1/2 weeks pregnant and have been dealing with the worst headaches. I have tried everything aloud wile pregnant but nothing seems to help. I am concerned because they haven't let up for two days straight.
Avatar n tn I was going to detox at the end of my script, (not many left in bottle anyway) Hydrocodone 10/650. Three years. Detoxed before cold turkey, but cant remember headaches. Doesn't mean I didn't have them. I've tryed tapering. No way Jose'. Been tryin to take less tho. last dose was at about 4:00, feelin like **** even then. Popped some valium to just go to sleep and turn off the world. No sleep. Cant.
1041243 tn?1375230520 but in my personal experience, thats all that vicodin does, too. vicodin makes me violently ill and i found that ibuprofen, tylenol and asprin all worked better than the vicodin...but i talked to my doc first, which is what you should do.
Avatar n tn s for about a year now prescribed to me for arthritis pain in my neck and back. Of course I started out with 1 or 2 a day and before I even realized it, I was taking sometimes 4 a day! I was also just becoming weird and nasty. I decided to quit "cold turkey" never doing any research and too embarassed to tell anyone (nobody even knew I was taking them like I was) 5 days ago.
Avatar f tn That being said, let me try and answer you as best I can. I assume you are taking generic Vicodin, which contains both hydrocodone and acetaminophen (Tylenol). The danger to your liver is not going to come from the hydro, it's going to come from the acetaminophen. How much are you taking a day, and what are the strength of the pills? The maximum dosage of acetaminophen for the body per day USED to be 4000 mgs, but it has been moved down to 3000 mgs.
2932946 tn?1344722012 for me I know it is my EDS and instability and TCS.....once u know it may be easier to know how to deal with it...as I said for me the TOPAMAX works and it helps put off more surgery.
Avatar f tn Technically, I suppose you could, but really why would you? Better to wait the requisite time before regular dosing. Also, just an FYI, Oxycodone and any narcotics really aren't very good for chronic headaches as they tend to cause worse rebound headaches. Good luck to you!
