Vicodin side effects itchiness

Common Questions and Answers about Vicodin side effects itchiness


Avatar f tn I just started on Zohydro ER because the idea of not taking acetaminophen with hydrocodone was tempting. (There's a Black Box warning about the acetaminophen in Vicodin). The first day I started the Z. (about 5 days ago) I got less pain relief and much more pain than I had with 5/375 Vicodin! That's seems totally wrong but it happened. The dose of the Z is the same as I got for the number of 5/375s I took per day. Anyone else on Z. and how do you like it? Any side effects?
1922425 tn?1322702653 Hi andream5, my husband is finishing week 16 today, so he completed incivek about 4 weeks ago. I would say his side effects since finishing incivek include itching (no rash), fatigue, some weakness/shortness of breath, fatigue, dry mouth/metallic taste in mouth, and insomnia. I think that the symptoms he is experiencing right now (post incivek) are very similar/identical to the side effects he had with previous two treatments. For the itching, he takes Atavan.
600857 tn?1230057770 OK, here's the "strange one" of the group. I have taken Vicodin for 4 years. It only makes me "grumpy" at the end of a day when I have over done my limitations and I am hurting and absolutely nothing works to ease my pain. My family knows when it's one of those evenings and they are kind enough to leave me alone and let me be a "B" all by myself. I don't even want to be around anyone. But those days are not often.
1983221 tn?1333506185 My question is - last night I woke up feeling like I had the flu, I was sweating, ached all over and had a massive headache. I know these are side effects of the interferons but has anyone had this while on Copaxone? I had no reaction like this the first few weeks I took Copaxone.
Avatar m tn I'd been taking Tramadol for over two months and when I came off them, I was crazy with restlessness. I couldn't sleep properly for almost 2 weeks and I suffered from itchiness and irritability. I was climbing the walls with frustration. Never suffered from side-effects but its awful. I wouldn't recommend taking Tramadol for more than a month and never more than the prescribed dose.
Avatar m tn In most cases withdrawal symptom feels like a flu. Muscle ache, diarrhea, nausea, sweat and etc.. How sever they will be or how lengthy is really different from one patients to the other. Maybe your will not be so bad. Some patients have minimum side effects. Good Luck.
906679 tn?1263612612 It is very difficult to wean off and has left some with permanent side effects. Good luck. I took vicodin with cymbalta and now I only take vicodin. It took me months of agony to get off Cymbalta. Please do the research.
Avatar n tn My hair seems like it is thinning? My skin looks like hell. I am on about 70mg a day. Has anyone else had weird side effects? Please let me know what you think the side effects you have experienced have been, as we can never be truely sure. Thank you!
Avatar f tn As your liver improves with treatment, it will go away. Unfortunately, itching can be one of the side effects of treatment, but the side effect is not nearly as bad as the original itching from bilirubin. Not everyone gets every side effect. Congratulations on deciding to treat. Treatment is rough but you will see a lot of improvements after it's over.
Avatar f tn I took bout 200-300 mg per day for a bout a week. I noticed the side effects difficulty staying asleep and muscle tightness as well as diarrhea initially. Then toward the end of the week I started to have painful sores in my mouth and swelling of my face and throat and neck lymph nodes, pain in the nodes as well. Then I got online and gasp at the things ive read! I cold turkey stopped on wednesday june 27th after reading bout mouth sores side effects.
Avatar m tn I am fortunate in that pain meds work to control pain to a tolerable level after surgery, but do not cause any feelings of euphoria or pleasure or unplesant psychiatric side effects either. They are just so constipating that using them is unpleasant. I hope you don't need much surgery or they can find something that doesn't cause you so much trouble. You may have to be hospitalized overnight after surgery so they can monitor your reaction to meds. It sounds awful.
Avatar n tn You can look up the side effects of just about any medication you can think of. I would look up the possible side effects of xyzol tablets. Write down the side effects so you have them when you go for your doctor's appointment. Good luck to you.
Avatar f tn I appreciate the help with the side effects, I was trying to figure out if I was having normal side effects and which would be from the Tylenol and which from the oxy. I am trying to make sure I take breaks when I can handle them from the meds, so I don't get dependant or addicted. But the pain gets so bad that I can't sleep for a few days, then I finally take something and wonder if I am in fact getting addicted? Scary, I have seen addiction in my family and it is not good.
Avatar f tn Hi there. I believe that your pain complaints are valid and this may be a side effect of neupogen shots (this bone pain can be part of the usual 'flu like' side effects associated with the drug). If you are experiencing pain from this treatment, then I believe it is inhuman to withhold pain medications for you, though I agree there can also be side effects from the chronic intake of pain medications (such as dependence or kidney problems).
Avatar n tn s possible that it started with a dermatitis and the creams you used only made it worse, since the most common side effects of anti fungals are burning, itching, and rash, mainly on sensitive skin (Nystatin does these side effects). Scrotal dermatitis is quite common.
Avatar m tn After about 10 weeks, I have adjusted to the side effects and it has been very effective for pain relief. Maybe that's a solution for you?
Avatar n tn Make sure your OBGYN is aware that you have been taking "tons" of vicodin since this is a Class D medication so that you, and baby, can be monitored appropriately.
