Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone long term side effects


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 n tn She began having serious side effects. I started reading on the internet about long term effects. Now she has nearly all the side effects to greater or lesser degrees. The worst is falling. She's fallen 4 times in the last week and is covered with bruises, new and old. She is now taking 14mg per day and can't stop. She has been in two different detox facilities but as soon as she gets out, she starts taking it again. She is basically an invalid.
