Vicodin cough

Common Questions and Answers about Vicodin cough


Avatar m tn hi, how do u feel on days when u don't take it besides the cough? I know for me, when i finally stopped taking vicodin totally, i did have a cough & learned that the vicodin was actually a cough suppressant so it was a common w/d effect. I don't know if it is the same with the oxy.
Avatar f tn In my case, cough stops as soon as I start chewing gum.
Avatar n tn I have a constant tickle in the throat. I cough up a small clear plug of mucus. The cough gets worse at night. I cough unitil I vomit. I have an inspiratory wheeze. During the night i wake and can hear a crackle and wheeze on expiration, I cannot expire completlly it makes me cough. I am short of breath on exertion and even talking is difficult when my throat is irritated.
Avatar m tn Is there any danger in taking over the counter cough and cold products for a recently recovering opiate addict? What can they take for a cold, particularly a severe cough?
Avatar m tn You'll make it. It may be bumpy. It was for me but you will make it. I went back on day three of oxie withdrawal. That was a b**** I developed a bad cough. I coughed like a sick horse lol. Ever heard a horse cough. It's loud and bad. I tried otc cough syrup. Halls worked best. Remember Monday is Monday and this is after a long holiday. Lots of people are gonna drag in. Congratulating you on your clean time. I'll pray for you. And you can do this. Put away all fears now.
Avatar m tn I have been addicted to vicodin for about 3 1/2 years and have quit a couple of times, which lasted no longer than 10 days. Last Saturday, I started c/t again and it was the easiest detox I have gone through, up until now. I felt pretty decent day 4 through 5, but yesterday I woke up with a severe head cold and cough. It is even worse today. I am feeling pretty down today because I just want to feel decent.

As long as your ob knows what you are taking it's ok. they wont let u take any thing that will seriously harm your child.
Avatar m tn I have had for the last three weeks now a constant cough that will not go away... with NO sinus drainuge... and it is due to irritability in the right side of the larynx. This has been accompanied by piercing ear pain. When I started caughing up blood I went to my doctor. Well... I lost a lot of confidence in him today... I have been seeing him for the better part of three years now...

Avatar n tn My brother who was 51 years old, just died of cardiomegaly (500 grams) and severe arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease. One week before he died he was diagnosed as having pneumonia and was given cough syrup, two inhalers and 5 days of a strong antibiotic. He returned one week later to the same doctor and had a second set of x-rays taken and was told that has lungs still had not cleared up.
519736 tn?1253986826 Not being able to cough in the hospital, still being too sore to cough with effectiveness and the possible cough suppressing effect of codeine are probably all contributing. The only thing I can suggest is speaking to your Dr to ask if there is anything else you or he can do to minimise build up of crap in your lungs until youre able to cough effectively.
Avatar n tn Following wisdom teeth extraction I was given vicodin. I liked the way it made me feel and how it made dealing with everday problems seem easier. I've been taking about 10mgs a day (all at night) and 100mgs of tramadol during the day for about 6 months now. I've had enough and tapered down to almost nothing for a week before stopping completely. It's been 5 days now since I've had anything.
Avatar m tn Hello- I am experiencing the following symptoms from vicodin withdrawel- terrible anxiety, flu symptoms, cough, sore throat, dizziness, and headaches. I already suffer from chronic sleep deprivation from several sleep disorders- this anxiety is the worst- wont let me sleep at all!! Help please. What can I do to help with the terrible anxiety??
Avatar n tn There's no specific forum within medhelp that does only with cough syrup. But you came to the right place. Codeine isn't much different than vicodin, percocet, etc. They are all opiates and the addiction is identical as is the withdrawals and mental aspect of it. There are many here that can help. So post away!
Avatar n tn I have withdrawn from vicodin several times (unfortunately) and do not recall a cough. You may have something underlying....good thing to see your considering going to a doc, but watch out they don't just med you up like they always do! I recently went for sinus pain and that's exactly what they gave me - Zyrtec plus a $50 nose spray which I used once and threw out because it tasted bad and burned my throat.
Avatar m tn I'm just collecting my thoughts here, I was taking between 12-15 vicodin 10's a day for about a year. I mean over a year I built up to that amount and have been doing it steady for about 5 months. I was moved acrossed the country by my job. A very good job that I like, and lost access to my supplier, and it ***** that my ability to handle my addiction was.
Avatar m tn Hi, I am 35 male who have been taking up to 160 mgs oxycotin a day and if I can't get oxy's I'd get 10 mg methadone..this has been going on since April I'd say I'd take Oxy's 3 days and then Methadone for the remaining 4 days of the week. I have been trying to taper down and have been succesful...My last Oxy was a 40 and it was Friday Morning. I took 4 perc 10's and 5 mg methadone..Saturday...Sunday I took 75 mg morphine... Monday 10 mg methadone....
Avatar n tn My doctor thought that it was gallbladder related , maybe stones, ultrasound showed nothing. Dr. considered ct scan , decided against it at last min. Sent home with vicodin, told to come back the next day. Pain just as bad , vicodin works for 30-40 mins then i start feeling it break threw again. After searching for similar symptoms online appears like other people with same problems have had misdiagnosed hernia , gluten allergy, or ulcers. Dr.

Avatar f tn So now im on keflex, zithromax, albuterol, zofran, tums, cough drops, robitussin dm, and got a shot of rocefin in the arse. How does an ear infection turn into pneumonia? ??? I didn't even know that was possible! And my doc says taking all these meds is safe but that seems like an awful lot to me.
Avatar f tn the sensation of food stuck to the side of my throat has been irritating,so i cough until i throw up,which eventually gets rid of the stuck food sensation.I have had a barium swallow nothing showed.I went to an ent,stated mild esophagitis.then to a gi specialist where an egd was preformed.stated mild esophagitis he told me it was mostly stress,so i have been on xyxnax o.5mg for a while,which just made me sleep and not eat.we switched to ativan,and i still have the food stuck sensation.
