Can I Take Morphine
Oxycodone and Naprox: Adequate pain control often requires multiple medications. Oxycodone is often combined with anti-inflammatory agents as naproxen. Taking 2 agents with different modes of action gives better results with lower side effects. There is another agent that combines both these agents in one pill, oxycontin. Be careful not to confuse the two. Make sure your pain is being managed by a pain specialist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

No interaction: There isn't an interaction of aspirin and vicodin. Vicodin is a combination of a narcotic (hydrocodone) and tylenol (acetaminophen). If you're taking low dose aspirin for some reason, it shouldn't be a problem to take vicodin. But I'd question why you're taking aspirin. It's not a great pain medication. If you're using aspirin for pain regularly, it's worth consulting a doc who knows pain meds. ...Read more
Narcotic complicatio: If you are asking this, likely your prescribing M.D. did not prescribe both these meds in this manner.

Talk to your doctor: Both vicodin and nyquil have acetaminophen, you would essentially be doubling the dose when taking these together.

I highly recommend that you talk to your doctor before taking them both together. ...Read more
You need to ask the: Doctor who prescribed it, or the pharmacist who filled the prescription. If it is not prescribed, the answer is easy - zero. The safe dose is not only limited by the amount of hydrocodone, but more so by the amount of Acetaminophen (apap). The current recommendation is no more than 2 grams/day for chronic users, and never more than 4 grams per day. If your pills have 325 mg, that is 6 pills/day. ...Read more

Can i take more morphine if my pain increases? The dose my doctor prescribed no longer effectively reduces my pain. What should I do?
Speak to your doctor: Escalation of pain in an otherwise stable chronic situation could also mean worsening of the underlying condition. Instead of arbitrarily increasing the dose of medicine, the problem itself should be further investigated. You should never self-medicate with narcotics and should consult your doctor to plot a better course for your treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

You may have: allergy to hydrocodone and/or oxycodone, but not morphine and/or codeine (Tylenol #3). It's unlikely you have allergic reaction against acetaminophen given it's an ingredient in Tylenol #3 which you say you had no problem with. I would stay away from hydrocodone and oxycodone in the future to avoid getting dangerous anaphylactic reactions. ...Read more
Can you tell me what happens when I have dental appointment with valium, can I take my MS contin (morphine) the night before morning appointment?
Not for sure: The problem is predicting the duration of action and the interactions that are possible. Although many dentists uses oral valium for procedural sedation, the effectiveness is difficult to predict. Add in the MS from the night before and that adds in more unpredictability from the aspect of over sedation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
