Vicodin and stomach pain

Common Questions and Answers about Vicodin and stomach pain

vicodin

Avatar n tn For each of these I was prescribed either hydrocodone (vicodin) and tylenol 3. I have terrible reactions to these meds.I feel sick to my stomach, very dizzy, and I usually end up vomiting or having dry heaves (not fun when you have abdominal stitches for a gallbladder extraction.) They didn't help much with the pain either and I decided the pain was preferable to the side effects of the drugs.
Avatar f tn ve had many stomach issues but this was a new symptom. I had been in and out of the hospital for about a whole week without any answers. I was very frustrated! My pain also started about 30 min after eating. I had to be home because the pain was awful. I also felt very nauseous. I was literally on the ground sobbing for about 2-3 hours. I'd take vicodin to ease the pain but that didn't help.
1733249 tn?1310306565 The sternum is painful (mostly all the time)and hurts to push on it. I also have slight stomach and under ribs pain. LOTS of belching and a bloated feeling. Went to ED and they did blood work, ekg, etc. I am under lot of stress at the moment. This seems to me to be a stomach and or esophogus issue. I have been taking prevacid for years and never had this problem before. Last night I took a vicodin and it felt much better. Maybe took care of the pain or relaxed me to stop worrying.
Avatar f tn Constipation can cause severe stomach pain similar to what you are describing. Are you wanting to quit the pain pills? If so, you have found the right place. You can do it and we can help.
Avatar n tn How bad was your stomach pain you hit Vicodin? What was wrong?
Avatar m tn I was recently in the ER (4 days ago) with severe stomach pain and was diagnosed with Gastritis. I was treated for the pain given a whole host of acid reducing medication (IV) some Hydrocodone and sent home. I was also given a perscription for an acid reducer and Vicodin. I went to see my Family doctor and he concurred with the diagnosis. I have been on the "acid reducers" for 4 days, I have only taken a few of the Vicodin because frankly I do not like the way I feel on it.
Avatar f tn Ibuprofen and such tends to give me stomach pain and I've been On ibuprofen for years. Heat helps but just for the 30 sex or so the heat is applied. Other than that nothing.
Avatar f tn I have been taking vicodin 7.5/750 for several months and all the tylonel is starting to upset my stomach. Does anyone know the different strengths of vicodin so I can try something different?
Avatar f tn I am begining to think it is not related to the wd. I googled head pain and stomach pain b4 I realized the stomach thing was wd. I really thought I was having an aneurism! (some what of a hypochondriac! lol!) But, someone mentioned they get head pain b4 their menstrual. I never have but I am going on 46 so I am wondering it the start of the change or something. thanks for your input! I sure appreciate it!
Avatar f tn I would go with the oxycodone (percocet) over the hydrocodone (vicodin), because it's possible to get the oxycodone in it's pure form in a pill without the tylenol in it. The -cet suffix on the percocet is what denotes the acetominophen or Tylenol. In the generic form, it would give the mg strength of the pill (ie, 5/500) and then say APAP on the label.

I am scared and afraid of something really bad happeneing if I were to stop cold turkey.I went to the er atime earlier.
Avatar f tn she was diagnosed with IBS and wanted Vicodin for that stomach pain. Finally the doctors convinced her and my parents that it was not OK to use Vicodin for that as it was ruining her stomach lining. But since then, she keeps coming up with reasons to need Vicodin...first a UTI, then a kidney or bladder infection, then more menstrual troubles. And she puts herself through all these tests for these illnesses but nothing ever comes back as conclusive. I'm so worried.
Avatar f tn 2 weeks ago I had steroidal injections in my pelvis and asked for something stronger because the tramadol wasnt working. I only take the vicodin at night, but it doesnt get rid of the pain. I tried a few times to not take it, but when I dont I get very restless and get a bad headache. When I take it the heafache goes away within 10 to 20 mins and the restlessness goes awau too. I dont want to take pills all the time, I already have a bad liver from a previous surgery.
Avatar n tn I have bad migraines and I use for pain, dimeral and they can add something to not make you sick to your stomach as well.
892237 tn?1249841914 It has been about a month and I have been in and out of the hospital. ER doctors have not been able to tell me what is wrong. My GI dr has not given me an adequate diagnose. I suffer from severe stomach pain, it makes itself present when I eat solids or so I've noticed. The pain lasts for about 2-3 hours and it goes away on its own. Along with the pain is vomitting. I also get the sensation of having a bowel movement but nothing happens.
Avatar n tn I HAVE BEEN TAKING VICODIN FOR MY CHRONIC BACK PAIN AND I WANT OFF OF IT I TALKED TO MY DR AND HE SAID I NEEDED TO GO TO A PSYCHI DR.
Avatar f tn Over a 4 month period I was Rx'd Vicodin 10-325 tab, Percocet and than Roxicet for pain related to b/l rotator cuff tears. I was not advised to take a stool softener and at times was very constipated. About 4 weeks after one shoulder surgical repair and when I was using Vicodin intermittently, I than developed gastritis. Zantac calmed my system after three weeks and was than discontinued. Now I have a heavy feeling in my stomach and significant burping. My bowel has also slowed.
Avatar m tn They're not too severe as the stomach cramps don't happen that often and are decreasing in frequency. I've read up on zoloft withdrawal and I definitely have it as I can relate to many of the stories people told of it. Also I've always been a lightweight and it doesn't take a high dose of any drug for it to affect me. I have noticed the withdrawal symptoms decreasing gradually. 2 weeks ago when I had just flushed the zoloft down the toilet I felt worse!
1472677 tn?1330175915 Hello my name is Kim and I am taking myself off of Vicodin for I am having severe pain in my stomach. It has been bothering me since my menipause surgery. What is the best way to get off Vicodin? I just want to live again......
Avatar n tn i also have not had any typical withdrawl symptoms from stopping the vicodin. i have degeneration of my t3 and t4 vertebre and spinal rotation and of course subluxation. i have had 2 diagnosises and both times the prognosis was long term chronic pain. i have blood work done every 3 mths and it has always been normal. i am worried that the tramadol and ibuprofen could damage my liver. i only take 7.5-750mg vicodin. wouldnt it be better to just take the vicodin again?
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 thank you for your reply. i just stumbled on to this and am surprised that someone responded. i went the whole dr thing a couple years ago and nothing could be found out. a dr did put me on amtriptylene that made the pain go away. but i do get bad headaches and i got a dr to give me some hydro ( they aren't vicodins lower dose) and now this pain has came back and even worse now. thanks again.
Avatar m tn The worst of physical wd symptoms do get better after about 4 days, but it takes a while for your body to recognize real pain and rebound pain. The opiates knocked out your bodies natural ability to fight off pain naturally, so it takes a bit for your brain to balance out. Opiates can create rebound pain, meaning that when the pain comes back after the opiates wear off, the pain is more intensified. It can take a couple weeks or more to know where your real pain meter is at.
Avatar f tn t take it vicodin will upset your stomach, but it seems to calm my stomach down and make it more tolerable for me to drink something. I know I shouldn't take it, but right now I have so much other crap coming out of my system that these so called doctors prescribed me that I don't want to withdrawal off of too much too fast. So one thing at a time. I will come off of these things, just not today unfortunately.
Avatar n tn I am still searching for answers but I will tell you that I have been prescribed Ultram, Ultram extended release, and Vicodin for the pain. I too hate taking the vicodin. The only thing that works for me is the regular Ultram. Don't get the extended release, it's like taking nothing at all. I take one dose of 100mg a day pretty much. I tossed the vicodin, this works much better without the side effects. It is non-narcotic. Good luck.
