Avatar m tn What are the long term side effects of taking prescribed pain-killing medications (opioids) when the patient is using for chronic pain correctly. Specifically Hydrocodone and Morphine Sulfate as a chronic pain patient who is considered a narcotic dependent patient by virtue of time used, in excess of five years continuously.
909257 tn?1242668182 You really should not be on hydrocodone long term, assuming it is the usual lor-cet, tab or norco type with acetaminophen. It is against medical standards, actually, though I have seen doctors do it, because they are too woried about catching heat for prescribing much safer (pure) opiods, I.e. oxycontin. As far as the "bipolar" diagnoses, I have yet to see one person who complains of mood ups and downs not be diagnosed bipolar.

Avatar f tn BUT, I have to take it or I am in pain. So try not to worry so much about the long term effects when you are trying to survive today. If you are worried about this I would talk to my doctor and let them know what you are experiencing and there may be something they can do differently. Just dont stop any seizure med without a doctors help. Hope you feel better..
Avatar m tn I have no symptoms and feel great; I am 54 and wondering if HEP C would kill me or if the treatment could cause long term effects that could ruin my health. The longest living male in my family was my father 86 and had slow progressive dementia the last 10 years.
Avatar f tn Probably a bit late for this answer, sorry, but just read this post. I, too am taking hydrocodone amongst other pain relievers for problems I am having with my pregnancy. The doctors do say it is safe, but I understand how scary it is. This is my third pregnancy and I have had the same complications with each (kidneys and SEVERE pain). Just wanted to tell you that despite that I have two very healthy and beautiful children!!
Avatar m tn Xanax worked as a temporary relief from anxiety but my doctor wanted me to use Xanax only in an emergency - not a drug for long term use he said as the body gets used to it and unless increased incrementally the positive effects wear off. Through exercise and four times a year shots in my hip a couple of Aleve now control most of my pain. I still take the hydrocodone at a dose of 7.5mg in the am and half that pill in the pm. ...not only for pain, however, but to relieve my depression.
Avatar m tn dont be too scared as said above few people experience sides but one thing is for sure long term use for decades is not healthy and only cirrhosis or severe damaged liver can justify such use so i'd definitely combo with other therapies so that nucs can be used short term from latest easl conference we have now tests for sustained immune control of hbv cccdna equal or less than 5 copies/cell we now need an hbsag level equal to 5copies/cell, mybe hbsag 500iu/ml
Avatar m tn I am having some severe side effects concerning short term memory loss, irritability, and fatigue. I have taken Ibuprofen 800mg, nortriptyline HCL 25mg, promethazine 25mg, acetaminophen COD#3, cycmbalta 30mg, pamelor 25mg, cyclobenzarrine 10mg, hydrocodone 500mg, methycprednisolone 4mg, tramadol HCL 50 mg, and viagra 100mg. My question is will any of the medications i was subscribed or taken in combination have symptons of severe memory loss?
Avatar f tn HI and welcome...I can't answer your question on long term use as I too just began oxycodone in March..it took me a few weeks to build up to full strength after that the side effects of drowsiness and brain fog began to wear off, now I feel pretty normal..and yes I too am now able to do some small gardening tasks and many things I hadn't been able to for a few years...I only hope I do not have to keep upping the dosage in order to continue at this level of control(?
Avatar f tn Most of us are or were concerned about the long term use of Opiates and the possibility of Addiction. However through education we've learned not to be so frightened. I found a helpful and informative article that I copied to one of my journals. Ppl have found this interesting and helpful also. I hope you will too. Here's the link: http://www.medhelp.org/user_journals/show/141662/Long-Term-Opiate-Therapy Addiction is far different than Dependancy....
Avatar f tn My brother in law is living with us and has a very bad addiction problem. He takes anywhere from 15 - 20 750mg Vicodin/Hydrocodone a day. He is only 24 and has been addicted for over a year. I'd really like more information on long term effects from this. Also, the doctors found a mass on his liver about a month ago. Could it be related to his heavy Vicodin usage? Please help!

Avatar f tn i wonder did a doctor tell you you had multiple chemical sensitivites....
Avatar f tn I'm recovering from an abscessed tooth. Mine developed 3 weeks ago and 2 days lator I had to have an Endodonist drain it on an emergency basis because the swelling was already moving up to my eye. I was told to get the tooth extracted because of my medical condition (Type 1 Diabetic). After I got it drained my dentist put me on 4,000mg of Amoxicillin a day becasue I had to get rid of the infection and the swelling had to continue to go down before he extracted the tooth.
