Common Questions and Answers about Vicodin and fertility


Avatar n tn Also, the indication for Vicodin intake by your boyfriend is also important consideration t make sure that the illness is not indirectly affecting him. WIth regards to Vicodin, this is usually indicated for moderate to severe pain and genitourinary side effects include ureteral spasm or urinary retention but not necessarily fertility issues( ref: Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn I was prescribed norco for a leg injury and I have taken them on and off for 4 years I have 2 children already and me and my partner want to conceive another child. Its been hard and I don't have much information on the pain medication and pregnancy but I have read that it can cause fertility issues because of the hormone imbalances the pain meds cause!
Avatar f tn I have reoccurring grade 1 isthmic spondylolisthesis for the last 6 years. Flare-up's are now occurring 2x/year, lasting 2/3 months at a time. My PCP recently referred me to a physiatrist for pain management. After a brief consult the physiatrist switched my PT, stopped my rx for vicodin, and prescribed Lyrica for sciatica. He inquired about the vicodin I was taking. I explained that I'm allergic to aspirin and all NSAID's and it was the only form of relief I had for pain.
Avatar f tn I have an infertility doctor who I know is wonderful with fertility drugs and IVF, but the pain management has been poor. Vicodin helps a lot, however, I cannot find anyone to prescribe it for me on a regular basis because it is addictive. I take a half of Vicodin 2 times a day. I dont think thats a problem, and it gives me a better quality life. What is Ponstel?
1041243 tn?1375230520 but in my personal experience, thats all that vicodin does, too. vicodin makes me violently ill and i found that ibuprofen, tylenol and asprin all worked better than the vicodin...but i talked to my doc first, which is what you should do.
Avatar f tn For example, Vicodin can be 5mg of hydro and 500mg of tylenol as can Lortab. Or Vicodin can be 10mg of hydro and 325 mg of tylenol and so can Lortab. So they only way one will be stronger than the other as if the Vicodin was 5/500 and the Lortab is 10/325. I hope I have been clear in anwsering your question. If I haven't been please let me know.
Avatar f tn I had brain tumor surgery in June and have been on Vicodin. In the last month i have been alternating (every 4 hrs) both Vicodin and Tramadol on a daily basis.I thought it would be a good way to decrease the Vicodin. I read the "precautions" for tramadol and it states "do not take with narcotics or other opioids". Then I realize that tramadol is just as addicting as vicodin. So why would a physician prescribe tramadol to try to get off the vicodin?
Avatar f tn what could be happening in my body that once I lay down and fall asleep, this happens? And again, ONLY when I take vicodin. But why SO many hours after the dose? And it only triggers when I fall asleep. If anyone has any insight or have had a similar experience, I'd love to hear from you but in closing -- Vicodin will kill me, I have received my warning more than once.
Avatar f tn If you are still cold a lot, it is likely that it does have something to do with the WD of the vicodin. (cold AND sweats) I had a hysterectomy a few weeks ago, and I have had HORRIBLE nightsweats since then. I had a hard time telling what was causing it, but I know now that it can't be drug withdrawal. It's been too long!!!
Avatar n tn No disrespect, but this is one of the more absurd questions I have read. You are on an anti-depressant (lexapro) and consuming alcohol, a CNS depressant, AND taking another mind-numbing substance (Vicodin). You should be taking Lexapro ONLY to deal with depression or whatever reason you are taking it. Both other meds are contraindicated for Lexapro. Smarten up.
Avatar n tn I'm 16 weeks pregnancy and have been on vicodin for 6 months.I take on most days 2 tabs 3-4times a day of the 5/500mg.I would like to know the effects of doing this.The docs are not being very helpful and they the one giving me this.I have pelvic symphanic.That where my pelvic bone separate too far and I can't walk.Any help would be helpful.
1279189 tn?1275244868 Ok, today I am picking up my RX for the Fenytal patch, my idea is not be on both the patch and still have to take Vicodin. My question is if I just stop the Vicodin, if the patch works out great for pain management. Will I have withdrawals from the Vicodin?... Also just want to know with the patch, do you get that spike In Energy like I get from the Vicodin, one of the things I did enjoy with the vicodin...haa haa... As it helps keep up with my 2 and 10 year old..Just woundering.
Avatar f tn s strange the week or so I was in the hospital with all the stress and trauma and Vicodin....I never once had palpitations or full-blown a-fib once. When I got out of the hospital I continued on the Vicodin like you for a couple of months as needed. The I weaned myself off but cutting back from 2 a day to 1 to 1/2 and I didn't have any adverse effects. It sounds like you weaned yourself gradually off it too.
Avatar n tn you can see on my profile that my daughter is a very happy and HEALTHY 19-month-old now, and they were giving me stuff WAY stronger than vicodin for my kidney stones. Congrats on the pregnancy :). When do you find out if you're having a girl or a boy?
Avatar f tn No, IBS would not affect fertility.
Avatar m tn I have a question about the difference between oxy and vicodin are these two drugs seperate addictions for instance I am on day 7 (yippee) without and oxy's I have been taking some small doses of vicodin for the last 7 days to keep myself from going completely off the deep end although there have been many many times where I thought I was going to absolutly lose it, I have been through this once before my main issue with detox is anxiety is by far is my worst symptom I can deal with the lack
Avatar m tn My friend that is a doctor called me in a perscrition of Ativan and said to take 1mg as needed and that I should be fine and would detox from the pain meds and xanax in a few days. Fact is, I'm really not even sure if/which one I'm craving, But I know that in the afternooons I have to take something to get rid of the jitterbugs. I have an appointment with another doctor (addictionoligist) in a few days but if anyone could offer some advice here I would surely appreciate it. Thanks!
Avatar f tn I'm a 30 year old who is having trouble getting pregnant and I have just started fertility treatment 2 months ago. I am on Crinone, CLomid, and Ovidrel. My husband and I are doing timed intercourse with this treatment. I am so worried that this isn't going to work, but I was curious to know what the sucess rate is with this cocktail of treatment.
Avatar n tn Right now, I am going to be tested for irregular levels and can not conceive. I was only on Vicodin for 1 wk and it totally screwed with me. All opiates can make your testoterone and prolactin irregular. Tough the pain out, its not worth it. PLus that sh*t is ddicting and makes you too tired to be active.
Avatar f tn Congratulations on trying to conceive! I was being treated with Metformin for my diabetes risk and irregular cycles. For women, Metformin can also make them super fertile (odd side effect) while regulating blood sugars. I'm not familiar with men and fertility issues, so I did a quick search and found this: Male Infertility & Diabetes DCS: What about diabetes and infertility as it is related to males? Does it cause fertility issues in men, too? Dr. Falcone: Yes.
Avatar f tn I have two quedtions. What is the difference between ovulation and fertility days on my calendar? Can you get pregnant during both?
Avatar f tn Absolutely! It can interfere with ovulation and menstruation in a woman and it affects sperm count and motility in a man.
432737 tn?1358549432 I am not a heavy drinker by any means, but I am 27 and live near the water and like to get out for a drink or two after work every now and then, and on the weekends with my husband. I am trying to conceive, and can't seem to get a grasp on how having a drink at all while TTC may affect fertility. I'm hoping some of you ladies have had your obgyn or doctor tell you something. So, I'd love for anyone to weigh in on what they were told!
Avatar n tn Hi, wondered if you could help I suddenly gained a stone in weight went to my doctors and he fobbed me off with im getting old (i was 25) i went back the next month as i had gained another half a stone i eventually got up to 13 stone and freaked and went to the gymn i spent 20 hrs a week for 18 months and lost 7lbs which i gained back 2 wks later i think it was water. I gave up and gained 2 stone on top through deppression after trying diets and exersize and getting no where.
398716 tn?1201225548 caffeine is good for fertility and caffeine is bad for fertility, but I think most are leaning towards cutting down on caffeine while TTC. However, a cup or so a day is probably OK. Everything in moderation, right?
Avatar f tn thank you very much for your quick response. Actually i don't have any pain,cramping or and U/S can not find PID but i have fertility issue and i'm so scared. I have been told i have natural immunity , do you think the natural immunity can prevent PID if though i've Clamydia for so long. sorry for this complicated questions.
