Hydrocodone and thyroid

Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone and thyroid


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 she has quit taking the hydrocodone 6-7 weeks ago but the hives are still coming (every single day) and in different places on her body. is this an allergic reaction to the hydrocodone? and can it take this long for the hives to go away?
Avatar m tn My mother had thyroid cancer when she was about 35 and had surgery to have it removed. She currently takes thyroid medication. Given my prolonged symptoms, it is obviously a concern since it is hereditary. Everyone I have gone to tells me my levels are completely in the normal range, but, so were my Mom's and she has thyroid disease. She has hypothyroidism. She always says "What is normal for one person is not normal for another person.
Avatar n tn There is no such thing as 20% prednisone. Prednisone is prescribed in mg.'s. That's probably what you meant. It is unusual to prescribe hydrocodone for this problem. There are many missing pieces to this story, including your lab results.
Avatar f tn re right, the drugs do depress your central nervous system, and they can cause your thyroid to be underactive as well. Since I've been off my stuff, I haven't had to take any levothyroxine at all.
Avatar m tn TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone), free T3, free T4, reverse T3, thyroid antibodies - thyroid peroxidase antibodies (TPOAb) and thyroglobulin antibodies (TgAb).
Avatar f tn btw, hydrocodone does not contain acetaminophen. Medications like Vicodin and Norco contain both hydrocodone and acetaminophen, but hydrocodone is itself a semi-synthetic opioid, similar to oxycodone.
Avatar n tn My husband is 64 years old and had cancer in his tonsil and lymph nodes in 2000 and was aggressively treated for a year with radiation and chemo after surgery to remove the tonsil, saliva gland, and strap muscle in his neck. He has routine exams every 3 to 6 months and has always gotten a clean bill of health. In a routine blood test last week, he was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and was given meds to treat it.
783714 tn?1237997265 I am having the amniocentesis next friday and by then I will be 20 weeks.I have been taking hydrocodone for 2 years. I went from 2 10-325 norcos to 1 and a half.Is it my fault my baby may have ds? Will tapering off of hydro harm my baby?How safe is the amnio test?Thankyou for any help you can give me.
Avatar n tn Also, after having all this stuff draining into my stomach all night it feels upset the next morning. I broke my leg and was given Hydrocodone pills for a few months and guess what zero problems of any kind with nasal drip at night or stomach problems during the day. I am spending 40$ a month now on a mix of antihistamine and Sudafed which does'nt work nearly as well. I wish there was something I could take that would work like the Hydrocondone pills.
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 f tn I have severe Gastroparesis and am on GJ feeding tubes. I was in pain management, but got kicked out because hydrocodone wasn't showing up in my system. I did a DNA test and I don't metabolize opioids and with all the liquids that run through my body with feeds, I feel like it dilutes my urine. Is there anyone that can help me document or verify this. I'm distraught.
Avatar f tn For the first two months he wants me to take the hydrocodone as prescribed and 30 days of Cymbalta 30 mg and another 30 days at 60 mg after that he said he would be able to get me off of the hydrocodone completely but it was unsafe if I didn't do both at the same time. Does anybody have any clarification as to why it's dangerous to quit hydrocodone and go straight to Cymbalta without being on both of them for a .
Avatar f tn Hi, I'm just going crazy. I have been on zoloft 100mg for the last six or seven years, they have helped great for me. I take them for anxiety and slight depression. I have arthritis in both my hips and it's been getting severe, since July I have been taking 2 - 6 hydrocodone for the pain. It just depends on what I am doing. Last Monday I quit taking the hydrocodone because I was worried after talking to a friend that I should get off them because they are addicting.
Avatar n tn If she was taking too many of the pain pills they can cause a manic like state. It's the same as taking amphetamines. AD's can also cause mania in ppl who don't have BP. The incorrect dosage or drug for that person. Would make sure they check into that first, before anything else. Also if she had some kind of surgery that would affect hormones of any kind. Ovaries and thyroid jump to mind. Anything that would cause a hormone dump.
Avatar f tn s, I have been taking cholesterol medication for about 2 months, I also take Hydrocodone 10/325 and Tramadol 50mg daily. I take 3 and 3. I was told that if my liver enzyme's were not down by my next visit on 3/23 I would no longer be able to take the Hydrocodone nor the cholesterol medication. My question is what alternatives to I have to replace the Hydrocodone10/325. Please reply with any advice or suggestions. Thank You.
Avatar f tn One thing I have not see anyone say about the differences in hydrocodone and oxycodone is that hydrocodone is schedule III while oxycodone is a scheduled II......
Avatar f tn I am at a lost as to what to do but I can tell you all that I feel the Hydrocodone is a very nasty toxic dependent drug and hard to take and deal with life. I also know it affects my moods and depression.
Avatar f tn Sorry Deb I don't know and I would think this would be a question for your hepdoc cause he knows the extent of your liver damage and stuff like that. A few now and then won't hurt but if you do have advanced damage you might want to see if they can prescribe the hydrocodone without the acetaminphen in it - I'm sure they do make it that way.
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.
1996308 tn?1327335139 So, you took the hydrocodone first and then the 8mg of Subutex? You may have a little nausea if anything... How do you feel now?
968560 tn?1307451498 Hi mpace6983, all I can say is I had the same problem with Tramadol and I also got insomnia from Tramadol and hydrocodone. So, I think you could try Valium but that is stronger I think. Maybe you have a cross reaction with another drug too? I know you will get a better answer on this site. Good luck and hope your pain gets better.
Avatar n tn The problem with HCV and vicodin abuse is going to weigh heavily on the acetaminophen component rather than the hydrocodone. Opioids are fairly liver friendly relative to long term high dose acetaminophen. If you can obtain straight hydrocodone rather than the combo, you might be better off; no one should be ingesting more than 2 grams acetaminophen/day.
Avatar f tn My pain management doctor recently switched me to hydrocodone 10-500 due to pharmacy crack downs and I am itching like crazy and having bad nightmares and don't sleep well and grind my teeth bad. I must be having an allergic reaction? I'm not allergic to anything but this now. I'm suffering in pain cause I can't take these side effects! I was on Oxycodone 10-325 and didn't have any problems.
2059984 tn?1330722704 My daughter is 8 and had surgery on the 24th of Feb. She isn't eating food. She can only drink water and juice. I give her hydrocodone every 4 hours. Now it's been a few days and she still doesn't want 2 eat. She yells and cries in the middle of the night that she has pain. She hasn't had any fever, I took her to the dr and they said that she is heeling. I just want to know if anyone has had the same thing happen with thier child.
Avatar n tn No more muscle growth or results at all. FYI, My thyroid tested fine.. Is this from the hydrocodone? If so, how long does it take to start losing weight? I have stopped all use of the medication.
