Vicodin side effects mood

Common Questions and Answers about Vicodin side effects mood


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.
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?
909257 tn?1242668182 Pain medications have numerous side effects and those who do take pain meds on a regular basis do usually have some kind of depression due to the fact that they do have chronic pain but as far as the meds causing depression or bipolar no I do not believe so.
Avatar f tn Mood stabilizers vary in effectiveness on both mania and depression. Lamictal from what I believe is better on depression than mania. Depakoate is better on depression. Lamictal in high doses can enduce mania as it did in me so it had to be discontinued by my psychiatrist. However, that was over time. Generally I found it safe and effective. Tegretol is hardly used in the United States anymore due to drug interactions.
Avatar m tn I had Mirena inserted for about 2 years. During that time I had tons of mood swings, lack of energy and problems with my skin. I was an emotional wreck and gained 20 lbs with no changes to my diet. It caused issues in my marriage with my moodiness. I finally had it removed and I've been about a year Mirena free. I have lost 15 within the past few months without even trying. It takes a while for the added hormones to leave your body. The weight I added it mostly gone.

Avatar n tn Yep, welcome to Tamoxifen. Those are all glorious side effects. Suggestion...try changing when you take Tamoxifen (try a couple weeks in the morning, couple weeks in the evening...couple weeks midday), take it with food...and also make sure you drink plenty of water in the day. I take mine usually midday now and the hot flashes have calmed down along with the mood swings.
1359882 tn?1277497464 what are some paxil side effects. because lately i have been having crazy dreams and kidney problems. can some one help me please?
730826 tn?1317943334 Im not vomiting any more but still am nausious. Its been a month since then. Can the side effects last this long or is there another reason for the nausea?
Avatar n tn i don't know about the dreams, but mood swings and lack of concentration are most definitely side effects.
Avatar n tn As far as detox- alcohol is the only detox that can kill u if I ts not medically managed and the alcohol intake was severe and/or long term abuse.tremors, seizures, agitation, anxiety, hallucinations, nausea and vomiting. Seizures and hallucinations disorientation are critical symptoms and need emergent medical help!! Opiate detox is hell. Severe agitation, anxiety, insomnia, muscle spasms, high blood pressure, sweats, puking. Diarrhea. It sucks but isn't lethal.
1151493 tn?1263336020 All this depression and self confidence issues ARE related to the side effects. Which scares me to death because I haven't had luck going down to less than the 4mg. Thank you for your response. XXXXxxxx.
1041243 tn?1375230520 not the same type of med obviously, but it goes to show that mood altering meds have different effects on different people. if the vicodin isn't working, you should talk to your doc. i don't know what it's prescribed for...but there are other non-narcotic pain meds that might help some. there's also darvocet for those allergic to hydrocodone...but there's some who say that darvocet isn't actually effective for pain...
618913 tn?1234747600 I havent had that many side-effects..ive had mood swings and pregnancy symptoms (nausea, cramping, and soooo tired) but nothing that i can't live with. i think i have put weight on but mostly thats me being lazy but i do think the implant holds your weight. I dont get periods with it...just a bit bleeding every now and then....and i really cant complain. as a student nurse its helped me as if i was on placement for a 12 hour shift with period pains.....well, no thank you!
Avatar m tn Yes I have medication side effects that are in clinical study myself that are neurological but they are researching them and understanding what they are and I am working with them. Bipolar disorder is a specific psychiatric disability. It would not be caused by medications but they could cause mood disruptions.
929728 tn?1256162688 i take it at night also, i would rather sleep off my hot flashes then be dripping at work. i think i just respond poorly to hormones, i had a lot of side effects when i was on bc 4 years ago. don't let my experience change your views, we are all different who knows you may not have any side effects. good luck, i hope it works!
1255530 tn?1269867619 rapid heart rate, hard to breath, stiffness is neck and back, respiratory infection it feels like coming on. As far as I read these can be serious side effects. I talked to two people at pdoc's office and they said I specifically need to talk to my pdoc. well she was sapozed to call today and didn't. I go back Thursday anyway but are these not serious side effects. p.s.
Avatar n tn So I recently started takiong Savella, so far no major side effects. I am so much hoping this works. I have terrible mood swings ALOT of Anger. Terrible thoughts go through my head. Looking back over the years of pain and depression, anger etc. I think the years and years I was being treated just for depression, I must have been mis-diagnosed. I went from in my early 20's, feeling depression and extremely exhausted all the time. Everyone thinks your just lazy.
Avatar n tn I've been on Acutane for three months, and I've been taking 40 mg doses for two months. It's working greatk and I really don't want to stop taking it. I've had a lot of mood swings lately, and I feel like I might be getting depressed. Not severely, just mild. However, I've had a lot of bad and stressful things going on in my life lately, so I can't definetey say that the Acutane is the cause of this.
Avatar m tn I have been on Lexapro several times over the last 4 years for 6 months to 2 years at a time. I am having problems with the sexual side effects and the weight gain. It's actually less of a "weight gain" than a shift in body composition. My pants are too tight and my shirts are more fitted but I haven't actually gained a pound. I am a competitive runner and haven't changed my exercise or eating habits over the last 2 years.
Avatar f tn I just want a little clarification. I've had the Nexplanon implant for about...3 months now. I've done my research and read all of the side effects. I haven't had a menstrual cycle since the implant, I have also taken a pregnancy test and came out negative. I know this is mentioned on a lot of side effect lists but I just want to make sure there's nothing I should rush to a doctor to get checked out.
558096 tn?1255887002 it is used for some types of has really no side effects/some but rare/if used on a long term basis...ofcourse it has alot if taken right after narcotic use...but on its own very lttle and has actually been shown to improve mood we use it in the hospital to reverse drug induced respiratory depression...and it works..the person wakes up quick after IV administration...
