Hydrocodone with food

Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone with food


Avatar n tn I've been off hydrocodone for 2 weeks now and I feel great. It's the first time being clean in 2 years. But I've been starting to feel weird little spasms in my stomach. Sometimes food goes right through me or it feels like my stomach is burning. Is this normal?
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.
725637 tn?1251685382 I am not one for expensive supplements, and have also been through the misery of W/D on many occasions-- none for years, thankfully. I agree with the post by Larry for the most part with one addition: the 'classic' medication for opiate W/D for years has been clonidine. It is very safe, and dirt cheap-- 4 bucks for 90 tabs at Target or WalMart-- but unfortunately requires a prescription. If you have a nice family doc, he/she might call it in for you.
Avatar n tn Thank you for your care, I made an appt with Pain Mgmt only to find out they only help people with back or neck problems. I will keep calling the doc (June appt.) to see if they can fit me in when they have a cancellation. Thank you again.
Avatar m tn m finally healed BUT now I still use one 5mg of hydrocodone a day. I have low depression, take Paxil, but have found that one pill, sometimes just half, give me incentive, otherwise I sleep and am sluggish. Had a active lifestyle, working, riding horses, and just before these accidents retired. I guess my question is does anyone have thoughts/ideas if taking one pill a day is harmful? I mean, I know, it's addictive behavior, but it just elevates me enough to get things done.
Avatar f tn I don't crave food with my meds. But since my pain is in my face I do eat better when I am. The people on this board is very helpful so I am sure they will have some ideas. Sorry you have had to stop working out. I started out taking walks and that has helped my moods. I am different I crave stuff and eat more on meds when I know I could lose alittle weight. I gained so much from taking a med I was on for a few months and I am trying to get the weight off since I am off that pill now.
2333944 tn?1342912367 I never thought I'd be writing this. I have never done drugs or even drank alcohol, prior to going on hydrocodone about four years ago for my very bad knees. I am 65 years old. My doctor prescribed me 120 per month. I usually only took two a day, sometimes 3, but I got to the point, if I didn't have some with me at all times, I felt panicky. I didn't even have to take one....I just had to have them..."just in case".
Avatar f tn A lot of people react to the hydrocodone this way , you should try taking with food, milk and if all else fails you can call your Dr. I have tried Emetrol in the past and it relieved my nausea quite well. You should make sure and ask your pharmacist if it is safe for you to take with your other meds though. I hope you feel better.

229538 tn?1300377767 Jimmy WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal health advisers want new restrictions on hydrocodone, the highly addictive painkiller that has grown into the most widely prescribed drug in the U.S. The recommendation from a panel of drug safety specialists would subject Vicodin and dozens of other medicines to the same restrictions as other narcotic drugs like oxycodone and morphine.
Avatar m tn 2 days ago we ended up back in the ER because he was having pain for almost 12 hours with no relief. The hydrocodone he was prescribed does not help at all. They gave him dilaudid, which took the pain right away for about 12 hours, but it came back and lasted most of the day. That was yesterday and now today the same thing. Going on 12 hours of non stop pain.
Avatar n tn I have taken over 12 different prescription medications and including hydrocodone and have gotten shots of morphine and Demerol nearly twice a week now. I don't know what to do anymore. I have seen every specialist imaginable and I can't seem to get a diagnosis.
197480 tn?1300891097 Hi everyone. I would like some feedback on getting off hydrocodone. I've taken Norco 10/325 for years now for chronic pain issues, and it makes me so tired and irritable, but when I try to stop the withdrawal is monstrous. I take 3 of them a day. Has anyone successfully tapered off this stuff? Thanks in advance for any and all replies.
10444775 tn?1410183637 Hi, I read a lot of your posts on here and I understand what you are feeling...I have a question that I hope someone can answer. My family doctor has been giving me hydrocodone 10mg. 1 tablet twice daily (60 monthly) for several years now. Well, about 6 weeks ago I was in a car accident and it broke my neck and crushed 2 vertebrates-which I had surgery on. And also, from the accident, I have 6 more fractures in my neck that has to heal on their on.
Avatar n tn I had better success with the cold turkey method, but as everybody here mentioned everyone is different. Tapering to me was just prolonging the agony. With the dosage you were taking and being hydrocodone, I think that you will have around 3 days of having flu like symptoms, then you'll be fighting the lack of energy after that.
Avatar n tn I have been taking Hydrocodone 10/660'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 I have to take care of both elder parents, mother with dementia. I have a full load daily. Found that I will run out of meds which I have done currently. having withdrawals which are terrible. i have been in bed 2 days and feel so sick. Fever, pain, chills, fatigue, insomnia. I am trying b6 , coconut water, Motrin, Xanax. Starting day three nothing is helping. Any suggestions. I can't stay down in bed a week.
1162610 tn?1262829016 Today was my first full day off Hydrocodone. I have had some irritable bowl and a little mild diahrrea, but not bad. I'm a bit achy, but that's not too bad either. I've noted a marked decline in my appetite, which I'm rather pleased about. I was concerned that I was going to end up "feeding" my cravings for the drug with FOOD since I was off the drug. I think the uneasy feeling in my gut has curtailed my appetite though.
Avatar m tn I have read some posting on hydrocodone withdrawl. The super flu like symptoms is very accurate. I have had the chills, shakes, and throwing up feeling. Just looking at food makes me ill. I have hardly gotten out of bed for 2 days. I have taken 2 hydrocodone pills and it helped out. I am going to taper down so I hopefully can avoid going through the hard core withdrawl. I can't afford to take off too much work. I have taken hydrocodone for several years but kept it around 4 to 5 a day.
Avatar m tn Bad depression the kind where you need someone to sit with you for safety. Not taking hydrocodone is extremely difficult because with out it I am in 8-10 on the pain scale. I have had 6 spinal surgeries and I have no hope for any other surgery. I use meditation to get through the pain. Some days its just PAIN and nothing works. I am only66 I am wondering how hydrocodone works on my depression?
Avatar n tn This is just my opinion, but I wouldn't mix methadone with hydrocodone. Both drugs supress your respiratory system. If you are still in withdrawls from oxycontin the opiate is still in your system and it would be mixing the 3 drugs. I would be afraid to take it all together. Good luck, this is not an easy road. My prayers are with you.
Avatar n tn I have been taking hydrocodone for 4 years, was on 10mgs per day until about a year ago, am now taking 25 to 30 mgs. a day. I want OFF!!! Can I taper? Are withdrawals bad? I have 30 10 mg tabs, some valiums and a few xanax. I have no medical insurance to enter a rehab center. Can I do this by myself? Where can I go for advice? Help, Anybody.
Avatar m tn I'm 20 years old and have been diagnosed with herniated discs and "degenerative disc disease" I'm working with conservative treatment because I don't think surgery would be good for my case. I have been prescribed Hydrocodone (Lortabs) and have used them at night when the pain gets bad. I also have sciatica, which is dulling my quality of life, at least for the time being.
548642 tn?1266179652 Ibuprofen is also good if your stomach is OK with it and you take it with food. Stronger stuff like opiates are also OK if necessary, but easy to become addicted to if you are not careful.
