Common Questions and Answers about Vicodin side effects dry mouth


Avatar n tn What did the savella side effects do to some people i hear they are horrible?
Avatar n tn I have recently started Wellbrutrin for depression which seems to work fairly well and I have no side effects. Your answers and encouragement will help...thanks.
Avatar n tn My oral surgeon says this is part of the normal healing process but I would like to know if anyone with dry socket has experienced this? When can one chew on the side of the mouth where the dry socket is? I know I am nowhere ready for this but just curious. The more I read and hear about individual experiences with dry socket, and my own experience, I am convinced it is a major blow to one's physical well being, ones mind and definitely not a quick healing process.
Avatar n tn I was taking half a day, then one a day, then up to 6 a day. Then I started having awful side effects. My back pain got worse, my tongue was swelling some, and had stomach pain too. Then I had my lumbar injection and the pain got worse. I am scared this is an allergic reaction. I had my lumbar steroid injection, and the pain got worse, so my Dr prescribed Tylenol 4. I haven't taken the Percocet in over a day now, as it has scared me. I took the Tylenol 4 only twice yesterday.
Avatar n tn Other mild side effects include dry mouth, nausea, vomiting, decreased appetite, dizziness, tiredness, lightheadedness, muscle twitches, sweating, itching, decreased urination and decreased libido. In addition, there are also more serious side effects. As for interactions with other drugs, there is a long list of medications which should not be taken in conjunction with Vicodin.
Avatar n tn Sometimes he says he's quit, but he always has a fresh bottle on hand! I've confronted him before. Worried now, cause he shows with intensity the side effects listed on websites, and he's falling asleep during eating,etc. and also suddenly developed sleep apnea. Somethings wrong with him - and I need to know how I can tell if it's the medicine, addiction, or neither. I found a perscrip. dated 4/3 for 20 tabs of hydro, and another dated 4/5 for 120 tablets of zydone.
4753943 tn?1359938169 YES the dry mouth is getting beyond annoying. I think I am going to buy some biotine mouth wash. I think that's what it's called? Gastritis is a beast. It really does control your diet. Pretty sure that could have been a reason I was dizzy. I'm slightly anemic and going through withdrawals probably made it worse. What is CBC?
Avatar n tn I am eating very carefully and not chewing on the dry socket side of my mouth. In fact I am practically living on soups, Ensure and very soft foods due to having recently had two root canals on the opposite side of my mouth (which they are giving me problems) so as you can see I have alot going on in my mouth right now. I personally only know one person who had a dry socket and hers seemed to clear up right away with only one packing. HOW LUCKY!.
Avatar n tn hello and welcome.In my opinion you are going to get off easy .If you ween off that amount you should suffer minimal w/d symptoms.There are alot of peeps who will tell you how.Me personally do it every time cold turkey and hate life all at once.Kinda like cuting your hand off once opposed to cutting one finger off once a week and suffering a whole lot longer.but that is just me.There aer peeps who are more experienced in other factors than i.Good luck .
4753943 tn?1359938169 My back pain seems to spike every other day. And my mouth is really dry, no matter how much I drink. Thanks for taking time to read this...
Avatar n tn I am also as addicted to Vicodin as anyone can get. I take up to 50 vicodin ES's a day and have been for years. I have been in rehab once before 4 years ago and lasted less than a week and have been taking them almost every day since then. I have once again come clean to my wife and family today and finally admitted that I was an addict.
Avatar f tn I started taking lexapro on Monday and the side effects of the lexapro scared me enough to not take any of the vicodin yesterday. Please help. I am in the alone. Well with my BF, but my family does not can not know. I have a husband and 3 children, work full-time and go to school. I got a lot on my plate. This is why I take the pills. It gives me energy. The guilt of lying to husband, and spending so much money weekly is killing me. Please help. Any advise will do.
Avatar n tn I've noticed some rare side effects listed for Xanax that may be contributing to the problem(laryngeal spasms, difficulty swallowing, increased salivation, and specific muscular control problems which can directly effect esophageal motility). I'm weaning myself off of the Xanax to see if it may be contributing to the problem. Also, Xanax is not suppossed to be used by people with asthma. The asthma seems like a real possible source.
Avatar m tn i have ulcers from trying to self treat with IB, spent over $3K on back procedures i can't afford, ended up at a neurologist because i was given muscle relaxers by the back doctor- the side effects where so dreadful, they thought I had parkinsons keeping in mind, i am in my thirties, raising too little girls, finishing a divorce, and a full-time student. i can't even work with my school/children's' schedule so we are living off cc.... but i have also realized it it a dangerous game.
Avatar n tn Without the 6 pills for the 6 days I am fearful of going through a depression and not being able to function as well as I should. SO the problem is what should I do to lessen the side effects of getting off these pills for 5 days? After that, when I take the 6 for 6 days- I want OFF them for good.
Avatar f tn Hello, After knee surgery 31/2 years ago I was put on Vicodin. Little did I know I would get hooked. I never really thought about it, since my doctor was giving it to me and I took it how he told me to. Well today is day 2 and night 3 of not having any vicodin. I have terriable legg cramps, sweets and I can not sleep. How long does this last? It is driving me crazy. I do not have any cravings for the vicodin. Just the withdraws are killing me. I have been drinking water and taking baths.
Avatar n tn Hello, Vicodin generally cause mild side effects like nausea, vomiting, headache, dry mouth, blurring of vision etc.It can affect the genitourinary system and cause ureteral spam and urinary retention. This can indirectly possibly lead to erectile dysfunction in few people. It needs to be confirmed whether this is the cause of your erectile dysfunction. Discuss it with your urologist. If this is so then an alternative medicine may be prescribed. I sincerely hope it helps. Good luck!
Avatar n tn Vicodin is prescribed for pain. The common side effects for this drug are constipation, dry mouth, confusion, light headedness, dark urine, problem with urination, convulsions etc. Smelly urine needs to be evaluated for infections by getting a urine analysis done and visiting a urologist. Best.
Avatar f tn It does have some side effects (dry mouth and sleep inducing) but they are easy to put up with.
Avatar f tn yes, dry dry dry, face, legs, feet, hands, mouth, throat, fingernails are split, broken and wont grow. i cant wait to get off of these wicked things.
Avatar f tn Can someone tell me what kind of meds works best for the pain in the head. I tried Vicodin but got tired of being nausea, Then I was on Butalbital and that was worse-didnt help the pain. Now I have pain on the right side (tumor was left frontal). I had to start the Vicodin again to ease the pain but have to tolerate the nausea. How do you know if your brain is swelling? So many questions and no answers....
232328 tn?1207093671 You can expect it to be between 3 to 6 weeks before any theraputic effects of the Prozac kick in. The most common side effects are Dry mouth, (almost everyone gets this) and either constipation or Diareea. That one kind of depends on the person. You may also experience some loss of sex drive. In most cases this loss of sex drive will deminish with time, but for some it can be a problem. If the Prozac makes you feel sleepy after taking it, then it's ok to take it at night.
1187071 tn?1279373298 I am now up to 1800mg of gabapentin a day, I am taking 600mg in the morning and the afternoon and the evening. The side effects have doubled! My mouth gets so dry now, I try to keep gum in my mouth at work I can't chew it to much cause of the pain but I try to keep it in my mouth but at some point I just have to take it out and my mouth gets so dry and we can't have any water and I can't just walk to get some, I am a cashier. When I am at home it is fine cause I can drink as much as I want.
522336 tn?1215884409 I left it alone after putting a cotton ball soaked with alcohol on it in the hopes that would dry it out and go away. Well, the place got a little scab on it that I would scratch the top off of only for it to grow back overnight. Anyway, at some point the scabbing stopped, I forgot all about little bump and paid no attention to it anymore.
Avatar f tn Seroquel most common side effects are Constipation; dizziness; drowsiness; dry mouth; increased appetite; lightheartedness; stomach upset; stuffy nose; tiredness; weight gain I do not have personal information on this drug. However it does not have the reported sided effects that other drugs in this class have been reporting. All medicines may cause side effects, but many people have no, or minor, side effects with Seroquel. And like all medications everyone reacts differently.
Avatar f tn the reason they are no longer front-line treatment for depression/anxiety disorders is because they do tend to have more side effects than newer drugs. at 100mg, it would not at all be uncommon to experience dry-mouth or constipation...etc. in any event, i've taken another drug called imipramine for the past 15 years...its a sister drug to amitriptyline....and i've never had a problem. the only problem i've ever had is if i run tends to be very very hard to sleep. infact...
767538 tn?1276578920 I was on 2 100mcg (yes at one time) in the past, and I never had problems with side effects. I'm very resistant to the effects of narcotics - always have been - even when first used for medical reasons when in college. I've not had a problem with abusing them ever, which is something I'm thankful for, as with that kind of tolerance, I'd be in trouble! The down side is that it is very hard to extinguish pain for me. It is also hard for doctors to put me under - again - even when young.
Avatar f tn Interested in the nicotine patch idea - which side effects might it help with? Willing to try most things especially if I can feel less 'ill'.
