Hydrocodone for period cramps

Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone for period cramps


608104 tn?1352587153 Hydrocodone, as well as all opiates, cause abdominal cramps by the inhibition of peristalsis. Try keeping well hydrated, and taking a daily dose of flavored cod-liver oil for lubrication. The flavored brands are quite palatable. A tablespoon divided in two doses. A very small amount of metamucil will also help, but not too much. You might try one of the anti-gas over-the counter drugs such as been-o or gas-X.
Avatar f tn Recently I have been getting severe leg and foot cramps, my doctor checked my potassium.. levels and they were good, she checked everything that could possibly cause leg cramps and the only thing that was out of whack was my liver enzyme'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.
Avatar f tn tell your doctor you want to try something stronger. I know alot of my friends who have this problem take hydrocodone for a few days every month for their extreme pain. make certain your doctor knows the amount of pain your in and how it does effect your life on those days.

1216742 tn?1334152111 Hi, before I start, I'm 19 and was diagnosed with stage III endometriosis and adenomyosis at age 18. After my laparoscopy/hysteroscopy to diagnose and remove my endo, my gyno/surgeon told me to take Diclofenac Potassium (Voltaren Rapid) to manage my pain if I needed it. It worked okay for the pain I had day to day, which was just nerve pain and referred back pain.
562303 tn?1216160428 So every 20 days or so, I wait for the cramps, they get terrible, and i stop the bc for about 1-2 days..and the period comes within that first day ALWAYS. I have not had a period since the end of may. I have taken 2 pregnancy tests, one showing a light neg line, the other a reg neg line..however, I havent had real endo pain..any endo sufferers will know what i mean. The last 2 months i have had bowel exrays, etc, due to chronic diareeah,vomiting, and intense pain in my abdomen.

Avatar f tn If i keep having sorta intense period cramps, does that mean I'm dilating more? And is there any way my bf could check me?
Avatar f tn Just curious yesterday starting at about 11 in the morning to about 1230 i was having really bad period cramps. Again today around the exact same time i had them again. Im 37 weeks and i havent really felt like baby has dropped and i havent progressed as far as i know. The cramps im having are in my lower back in my sides and ovaries and down my thighs. It feels exactly like it does the first 2 or 3 days of my period.
Avatar f tn I have had my period for about 3 1/2 years and I am 16. ever since about a year after getting it, every other month I would get very bad cramps on the 1st and 2nd day of menstrating. now it has moved so that every month I have had horrible cramps. I get very shaky and sometimes dizzy. I had sex for the first time 3 months ago and since they have gotten worse. any idea why this could be happening? any suggestions on how to solve this problem?
Avatar f tn Are you on any birth control?
Avatar f tn I am about 5 weeks pregnant. I have been having pregnancy cramps for the last week. I here it could be normal. It's very unsettling! Has anyone else had these also?

Avatar f tn I was told by my doctor to call her if I got any cramps that felt less like ligament stretching and more like period cramps because it could be a sign of preterm labor. Especially if it is followed by other symptons. I had them the other night and called her...she had me lay down and drink a lot of water...if they didnt go away in 45 mins she told me to go to labor and delivery. Luckily mine went away. I would call your doctor or go get checked. Im 31 weeks.
Avatar f tn So this is around the time of my first missed period but my body acted like I was on my period.. No blood... Just cramps and brownish end of period discharge... Should I be concerned?
Avatar f tn I heard period cramps are normal early in pregnancy I never had them early in pregnancy but I'm getting them now and have been for about a week. I'm 20+5. Is this normal?
Avatar f tn im 32 weeks and 5 days ftm and ive been getting a couple period like cramps . does this mean anything ?

Avatar f tn Serious question...im 37wks & ive been having like menstrual period cramps the whole night & followed by a horrible back pain.. Ive also had dome type of discharge but it looks more like water just clear & thin... Could this mean im ready for labor or is it just something normal?? What do i do?
Avatar f tn Is it normal to have period cramps at 31 weeks and your belly button hurt!!! It's really bothering me my stomach hurts, my belly button.
Avatar n tn Keep working through it. It seemed like I would take a bath every couple hours it would make the cramps in my stomach ease and rinse the sweat off for a short time.
Avatar m tn For me I tapered from 4 a day down to 3 a day for a one month period. I then went to 2 a day and found myself taking 3 again. It was hard to stick to the 2 a day. I always feel tired and taking the pills seems to give me a bump and help make me feel normal in addition to the back pain. I know that I am so tired of this cycle. I decided to try again to the 2 a day. I went one week at 2 a day and then I told myself I would stop last saturday and detox over the weekend.
Avatar f tn Is the lab detecting minor amounts of hydrocodone -- then this is normal for codeine metabolism. But if it is detecting a therapeutic dose of hydrocodone, then its presence can't be due to the metabolism of codeine. Here's a reference for your doctor's use: http://www.wardelab.com/22-2.html#t1 I hope this helps. Best wishes with your pain management routine.
