Oxycodone and prednisone

Common Questions and Answers about Oxycodone and prednisone


Avatar m tn If you were truly hypo (and you would have had to have blood tests for that), rather than just some similar to the oxycodene side effects (see wikipedia), and you had thyroid medication and the Prednisone, then there is a good chance your hair will come back, after your hypo levels stabilised. I think what has happened in your case, is that your pain relief medication, Oxycodone has had some issues in side effects very similar to being hypo.
Avatar m tn It most certainly cannot regrow hair if you have thyroid and adrenal malfunctions. I used prednisone and inhaled steroids and for COPD, It not only resulted in hair loss, but CAUSED me to have an adrenal problem. I got off that junk and now rely on natural anti-inflammatories.
Avatar m tn got scared giving me high amounts of oxycodone. At first the pain center was not happy with the amounts and try to cut me down only to see it was not helping my pain levels so they back off.. The pain center is now getting political pressure from all sides. The FDA, Whitehouse, and the group "PROP" which is trying to hurt chronic pain patients. I would assume these groups have an influence as they are coming down hard on us chronic pain patients from all avenues.
Avatar m tn That alone beside trying to cut down is hard. I have tried all the crohns meds and the ones that work for me are prednisone and entocort. I'm also doing a pain chart which I started in March before they started cutting me down and also adding how I feel, how my day goes on a section called notes. I also compare how my exercise has been effected by cutting down. Hopefully by me taking the time to do this it will show them its really and I hurt very much.
Avatar f tn Just found out I'm pregnant a week ago and I'm on oxycodone 60mg a day for chronic nerve pain. My pain management Dr said the only thing I can take is opiods and made me stop my muscle relaxors, prednisone and lidoderm patches. My OB would like me to stop for the first trimester as she said it could cause birth defects but my pain management Dr doesn't agree. She said my high blood pressure associated with my pain, the pain itself , anxiety and stress outweigh the risk of taking it.
483733 tn?1326802046 I am glad that there is something they feel can help and that I don't need to go on Prednisone as I took way too much of that back when I had ulcerative colitis. I am hoping and praying that this drug will do the trick and start to relieve my pain and fatigue. I don't have copies of my blood work but will get them when I go back for my follow up in 8 weeks. Anyone out there who has this I welcome any advice you might have.
Avatar f tn Today even my spine hurts but I havent noticed any swelling in any of my joints though my legs seem warm to the touch. I've taken ibprof and oxycodone but neither made any discernible difference.I can live with the pain. I am concerned about whether there is a possibility that something is actually wrong beyond some prednisone side effect or Crohn's arthritis. More specifically I'm concerned that by moving around I'm causing damage to the muscles or joints or whatever.
Avatar n tn however, when they first started I was given Vicoden, Oxycodone, and Prednisone, which none really made a huge difference, but I haven't been on those for at least 4 1/2 months. They have also checked me for Lupus, Lyme, MS, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and some other things, but nothing has really shown anything. Hope this helps and thank you again for all of your suggestions.
Avatar m tn I went to an ENT specialist 2 weeks ago who gave me a longer dose of prednisone (2 more weeks) and roxithromycin (6 more weeks). I'm also regularly using a budescodine nasal spray. The specialist advised me to stay on the antibiotics for 6 weeks, and go for surgery if it does not improve by then. But he offered me the option of going to surgery earlier if I want. However, I still have not seen any improvement, and I'm taking panadol once or twice every day.
401095 tn?1351395370 I have tried the prednisone burst before..and usually with good results..i may go and do that...i usually take 40 mg to get it in my system good then taper...how do u do the burst? hate the weight gain tho!...
433485 tn?1321816990 I was on a morphine drip in the hospital, my bowels became empacted, and the nurses cleared it up, but NO WAY could the pain medicines be stopped with the exquistely painful and deforming compression fractures of three vertebra in my thoracic spine. And one final item, I am unsure why the topic of prednisone came up. I think, SUE, you did ask about probiotics. Perhaps there is some confusion there.
Avatar n tn You say that you just take enough to get high and when they are gone you just wait it out? I take pain meds too but don't get a high from them. They just kill the pain. But I do relate to your predicament all too well. Somehow you are going to have to ween yourself off of the Percocet. The pain you are living with is between your ears. Most of us here know what you are going through, believe me.
Avatar f tn My rheumatologist gave in and put me on 5 mg oxycodone every 8 hours, but I only got relief for about 3 hours. He eventually referred me to pain management and I was able to be put back on vicoprofen 7.5/200mg every 6 hours. My level of pain from November 09' to now has increased quite a bit and I haven't had a normal pain free day in months. I wake up stiff and hurting everywhere, especially in my feet, back and shoulders.
Avatar f tn my FEV 1 and FVC have been stuck at 70 even on inhalers and I wheeze when I exhale and I'm getting diabetes I've read prednisone can cause neuron death in the hippocampus and memory problems long term is it true?
Avatar n tn I was told that eye doctors sometimes are the first ones to diagnose a brain tumor and I just saw mine in February and he said erveryhting was fine. Could it be that I have a head cold and the coughing and constant sniffing are causing the headaches? I am just worried and confused?
Avatar f tn I take 600 mg in the morning, along with two OTC Aleve, and one Oxycodone and the sciatica pain is completely gone within an hour and doesn't come back until late afternoon. I admit, I am also on the Fentanyl patch but I have been taking Gabapentin well before I started the patch and I know it was very effective for my nerve pain prior to starting Fentanyl. Good luck to you. Surgery to be a last resort option.
199882 tn?1310188142 Yes, you were in withdrawal. But why were you on the methadone and the oxycodone????? Perhaps for the huge and terrible amount of pain your have been in for the last months?? When she gave you a narcotic inhibitor you went form whatever state of pain relief you were in to suddenly all the pain present in your body!!! A normal person would feel the effect of every nerve in their body, because even the endorphins (the body's own opiates) would be blocked.
Avatar n tn It can attack any body part, it mostly is a lung disease but not everyone has that. I have no lung involvement. I am also taking prednisone to try and rid my heart of granulomas from the disease. It is not easy finding doctors that know much about this disease, esp if you don't have the lung version.
Avatar f tn We have been with the pain management doctor for just over a year now, but we are constantly fighting my husband's tolerance. My husband is a big guy and he has always been able to drink and take the strongest medication with no effect on his body what so ever.
Avatar n tn The doctor said the carotid artery was inflamed and prescribed a nine day course of prednisone. I started the prednisone tonight along with 3 advil and the pain is already much, much better. My doctor told me that there is an 80% chance this treatment will resolve the problem, but there was a 20% chance that it might return and I might need another course of prednisone. The little bit of reading I have done so far seem to point to a viral cause.
6815927 tn?1395515025 I agree with staying at a dose until you feel stable and then dropping. And I did the Fentanyl first and then did the oxycodone. Personally I would never go on Fentanyl again. I was not made fully aware of just how strong it is. It took me about four months and I probably should have gone a little slower. I didn't have rls but my legs felt so heavy. I learned after the fact that magnesium would have helped a bit. I was very frustrated at times.
Avatar n tn (WHAT A JOKE) I found a couple of old valuim which helped, I was glad I saved a bunch of steriods (prednisone) within a coulple of days my pain was gone. Save Prednisone and alike. If you are suffering from some activity you HAVE to do and it caused yourself pain It could be inflamation. I cant believe I went through so much pain for so long and I had meds I needed right there.
199882 tn?1310188142 I am happy to hear that you are feeling better and improving with physical therapy. That is a good sign. For what it is worth and this is only my opinion: I had a blood clot behind my left knee in 2003 without any warning or any symptoms. I was treated with Coumadin and the clot was eventually reabsorbed. In 2004 my left leg and left arm became weak and I was told that I had a stroke (or maybe a series of mini strokes). I was given physical therapy but the weakness NEVER improved.
Avatar n tn It can be identified by two blood tests, Creatinine and C-Reactive Protein, I think. I've had it for 3 years and have been on Prednisone for 3 years. When I am on 15 or more mg./day of Prednisone it really helps. However, I have been trying to get off this drug because of its severe side effects and am down to 2 mg/day now but have added a pain medication, Oxycodone to offset it. No matter, it's killing me and I am thinking about going back on the higher dose of Prednisone.
4622451 tn?1360598855 But this thing has had me out of work since before thanksgiving. I love my job and it's great $$. My boss loves me....and would love to get me back out there. But not until I can assure hime that I won't have some wild panic attack and have to be driven 40 miles, off the mountain, to the ER again. One thing I could not fail to notice is that I am fine.....all morning long. Until I take my first pain meds. then it starts. Don't know if the meds alter my breathing or if it's all in my head.
Avatar f tn Bottom line, mg for mg, hydromorphone is stronger than oxycodone. And tolerance build up is different for different people. If you want a more technical explaination of cross tolerances, etc. just pm me. I hope this helps and I hope you feel better.
Avatar f tn weened me off the prednisone but never said anything about the oxycodone other than I shouldn't need it anymore. I took my last one yesterday morning and my husband and I decided to only pick up the refill if I have severe problems.
211940 tn?1267884866 However, he said it could NOT be causing me so much pain. He checked out my arm and noticed a hard soft tissue knot, and suggested removing it through surgery and it "might" relieve my pain. So, 3 weeks ago I had the said surgery and it was removed (a hard soft tissue mass about the size of a marble). No, this was not the cyst inside my humerus bone. Anyways, I still have the pain, and it is extremely terrible at night (on a scale of 1 to 10, a 20 at night).
Avatar n tn It is not numb to the touch, but very tingly and consistent. The pins and needles in my hands and feet seems to be worsening, and I'm experiencing 'hot spots' on the tops of my feet. Sometimes my hands feel like I have rubber bands around the wrists. Could this be a side effect of any medication? I'm currently taking methotrexate, prednisone, bactrim every other day, actonel, and folic acid.
