Oxycodone and dizziness

Common Questions and Answers about Oxycodone and dizziness


Avatar f tn I finally had a hip replacement one year ago. I've gradually weaned down from MS Contin 30 mg three times a day and oxycodone 30 mg 6 times a day to oxycodone 15 mg 3-4 times daily. My surgery will be a year ago on Monday, and my goal has been to be narcotic free by that day. My mind is 100 percent ready; it has been since the day I decided to have the surgery. But these last 3-4 oxycodone per day have been my Achilles heel. On Tuesday I cut down to 1/2 tablet every 8-10 hours.
Avatar n tn my father is on the Fentanyl patch and oxycodone and is experiencing the side effects of not eating, sweating; weakness- he is wasting away. His legs are numb from knees down and has extreme pain in his hands from neopathy. Is there any help out there?
Avatar m tn the 40mg OxyContin, the presciption is ready for pick-up every month at the pharmacy and I could easily have a weak moment and go and fill the scipt. I'm aware that seeking medical care is best, but given the circumstances (my career for example) I'd like to avoid this at all costs. Does anyone have any experience with oxycodone for approximately the same amount of time I've been taking it? I'm curious to know how long I can expect withdrawl symptoms.
Avatar n tn I have been experiencing what can be described as some sort of autonomic overreaction(feels adrenergic-like to me) when I have a cigarrette while on opioids,sometimes with marked dizziness and tachycardia.Its like an enhancement nicotine stimulant effects,mostly unpleasant and with both codeine and morphine...besides Im taking antihypertensive medication on a daily basis and they might play a role in it,specially the betablocker.Can anyone shed some light on the subject,please?
Avatar m tn All of the sudden every time that I take one I am having heart palpatations, sweating, trembling, muscle spasms, shorness of breath, and dizziness. I have been to two doctors and both say that it is just anxiety but I am convinced that it is oxycodone. They say that I would have had trouble before now but this is only happening after I take a dose. I have cut way back and I am going to get off of it for a while but of course I can't just stop.
Avatar n tn He seemed to do better as far as being able to focus, walk and his severe dizziness was under control. His new doctor a internest (wife took him to over a year ago after rehab) cut his dose to 30mlg three times a day. Mind you this doctor did not even have his medical record NONE of them! He is now home with his family separated from wife.
Avatar m tn I got down to about 30mg/day (the OxyContin 2x/day and 10mg oxycodone - 5mg at bedtime and another 5mg in the middle of the night when I would wake up). I was feeling pretty good that I had avoided any addiction until I ran out of the OxyContin three days ago. The pain from the surgery is pretty much over so I decided I would stick to Tylenol and only take the oxycodone at night to help me sleep. I decided to take just 10mg/day (5mg at bedtime and 5mg in the middle of the night).
Avatar m tn I was taking 6 ultrams in morning just to feel normal and then oxycodone sometimes 6 a day. I am so tired of being a slave to these drugs. I want to stop them altogether but don't know how to go about it. I am a single mother of two children and really have no help with taking care of them. My ex husband is a real jerk that is why I am not with him anymore.I also think he is the main reason for my addiction as he was abusive to me all of the time that I was with him.
Avatar n tn About 2 hours later I went to the doctor b/c in addition to my fever, I was extremely nauseated and could not keep any food down, and I had a stiff and painful neck. When they took my temp, it was up to 102.6. After testing me for strep, pnumonia, and kidney infection and all of them coming back negative, she determined that I just had a virus. However, she told me that if anything got worse, that I should go to the ER and get checked for meningitis.
Avatar m tn after surgery - have multiple pain conditions. I also have COPD. Is anyone experiencing severe shortness of breath, dizziness and feeling winded from withdrawal? I don't know if this is the Buproprion HCL 225 mg or COPD progressing or this slow taper (now really low) from oxy.
580477 tn?1217990849 Pls do not take it on your own as it may cause severe side effects like constipation, fatigue, dizziness, nausea, lightheadedness, headache, dry mouth, pruritus, and diaphoresis. It has also claimed to cause dimness in vision due to Miosis. In high doses, overdoses, or in patients not tolerant to opiates, oxycodone can cause shallow breathing, bradycardia, cold, clammy skin, apnea, hypotension, pupil constriction, circulatory collapse, respiratory arrest, and death. http://en.wikipedia.
424839 tn?1268189846 This class of drugs includes heroin, morphine, codeine, methadone and oxycodone (Oxycontin).
Avatar f tn I have this same condition and i have found so much relief with the use of 60mg of morphine and 5 mg of oxycodone. The pain gets so severe that I wish they would cut my feet off. This combinations of drugs has given me so much relief. If you can ask your Doctors for this combination I think you will be surprised. I have diabetes and have had 3 back surgeries.
Avatar m tn I didn't even ask for oxycodone at the hospital, but I lucked out and the doctor that saw me had sinus surgery and KNEW it was painful. I just wanted the higher dose hydrocodone. Needless to say, I had nose bleeds for two weeks after it and it was very painful. My advice, discuss what the doctor will give you for pain meds BEFORE the surgery. If they act like, "oh that will be plenty for you.
628190 tn?1269022107 severe headaches, dizziness, nausea, vomiting and a huge spike in my blood pressure. I called the doctor immediately and he told what to do but as you know, Suboxone has such a long half life, it took me days to get to feel even somewhat "normal".
1684282 tn?1505701570 I am becoming somewhat frustrated with the way a lot of my colleagues practice medicine. Disenchanted, angry would be the other words that could be used. We all get ostensibly that same training and all of us are supposedly in it to help our patients. So, how come have I been getting so many letters lately on my addiction forum from desperate people unable to quit taking the tramadol pills that their own kind doctors have so freely prescribed for them?
Avatar f tn Also have used relpax, imitrex, axert, migranal, maxalt, zomig, etc. Toradol about one of the best for results, but very limited use. Oxycodone and Vicodin and anti-nausea meds, also. Several times a year to ER for IV anti-emetic, maybe benadryl, toradol, and multiple doses of dilaudid. Any helpful advice or information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much!
Avatar f tn I did some research and some of the top side-effects with the Morphine are Headaches and Drowsiness and dizziness and being light-headed. There are many more than that but those are the ones that were at the top. I don't know if that helped you or not BUT I hope that it did. I really think you might want to consider talking to your NP about switching your BT meds.
Avatar m tn (Not due to the medication in any way) As a result, I was prescribed Vicodin and Oxycodone for pain. In the past I had always refused pain medications. I felt tough and manly if I didn't need them, but this wasn't getting your wisdom teeth pulled. I needed to take them. Having very little knowledge of opiate painkillers at the time I began taking them as the doctor prescribed. When I took the first dose I felt amazing. The opiates completely eliminated all my anxiety and depression.
Avatar f tn I don't crave oxycodone. I don't ever take more than I'm prescribed (and often take less than I'm supposed to, which, according to my doctors, is not a good thing as the pain gets out of control. I don't run out of my medications or have multiple doctors prescribing for me. I only get my pain medication from my pain specialist. I would tend to agree with gnarly; that you're using it not only for the pain but for other reasons as well.
922573 tn?1304102929 Hello everyone, I suffer from chronic pain due to a disease that has required me to have bone drilled from my skull multiple times. I will spare you the lengthy details, but the pain I feel now is as followed (it is the best way I know how to describe it). After the surgeries I felt like someone was stabbing me in the head with an ax.
5034232 tn?1362619449 I also can no longer have oxycodone....I had that for pain after one of my surgeries and am now told the reaction I had is an allergic one...??? The had me on all sorts of post op meds, even one to prevent blood clots...I had a Foley cath, and some type of compression stockings that would inflate and deflate electronically to keep the circulation in my legs.... The bed was also moving ever so slightly every so often.... I do not recall really feeling sick...
Avatar n tn Hello, Oxycodone/apap is a combination of a narcotic (oxycodone) and a non-narcotic (acetaminophen) used to relieve moderate to severe pain.It is possible that your wife has shown an allergic reaction to any of these two drugs.Side effects to this combination includes hives and itchy rashes,dizziness,nausea, drowsiness, flushing, vision changes, or mental/mood changes,chest tightness,difficulty breathing etc. Pls stop this drug and take her to the doctor immediately.
Avatar f tn For the record, (and against all advice), I quit (tapered very slowly off) Prednisone, stopped the Methotrexate after taking for 7 weeks, stopped Gabapentin, Valium, Oxycodone and Percocett. I am going to a Naturopathic Doctor, who is also an Orthomolecular Nutritionist, a Darkfield Microscopist and acupuncturist. I am no longer on the meds (which caused more problems than the disease), and physically I feel so much better.
146298 tn?1258715847 I had something similar last year. I thought it was a migraine. The pain was on the left side of my head, in back, just below my skull, and along the jaw line, cheek, and eye. I would have "jolts" of pain, with a constant underlying pain. None of the migraine meds, nor oral steroids worked. Neurontin (gabapentin) did work, but it took a while to get up to an effective dose. I ended up being told it was trigeminal neuralgia and occipital neuralgia. Good luck.
Avatar n tn I'd never hear of the brand-name Opana before, but I can tell you the big difference between oxy's and dilaudid ... Oxycodone -- the opioid in Percocet/dan and Oxycontin, is derived from a part of the opium moleculed called thebaine -- that's why it gives you that "lift," hardly anyone with no knowledge of these drugs would expect. Many oxy addicts take so much of the stuff, they need to take a few benzos to sleep.
Avatar n tn I keep getting conflicting info on whether or not I can take my perscribed pain meds. I have the headache, the dizziness and unsteadyness. All in all I feel wierd and am in pain....what do I do? I cannot afford to go back to the doctor, we have no insurance. Damn, if I could read or type without pounding the keys I would be good!
329994 tn?1301666848 I am 26, i have been struggling with CFS and Fibro for six years (officially) though all my symptoms began when i was 14. I know how frustrating it can be. I have taken Neurontin but i didn't find it to be helpful for me. I noticed no difference in symptoms for the 6 mths i took it. I took Cymbalta for 4 yrs and finally just got off of it. While Cymbalta did help manage both my depression and muscle pain, the side effects were what i hated about it.
Avatar n tn He was struggling with dizziness although has been doing the breath holding thing and mediatation to help as well as regular rest times and absolutly zero stress where possible.
Avatar n tn Also,I read on the web that you could order drugs like oxycodone from european manufacturers and have them mailed to your address in the U.S. legally.Has anyone heard of this or have any info. about this topic?
