Could Taking Vicodin Let Me Get A Tattoo Without Feeling Any Pain
Vicodin and tattoo: Firstly - having a tattoo is not painless. Secondly none of the "tattoo parlors" are permitted by law to provide pain medication. Secondly I dopubt very much if any md will give you this opioid just to get a tattoo - expect them to tell you to take a Motrin and tylenol (acetaminophen) for the tattoo.See 1 more doctor answer
Tattoos on your breasts, or elsewhere, will not have any effect on your pregnancy or on breastfeeding your new baby. It may not be a good idea to get a new tattoo during pregnancy or while breastfeeding, because of the small risk of infection from the small breaks in the skin that ...Read more
Don't do it: Vicodin is a controlled substance and you'd be self-administering without a physician's permission, which is still illegal and probably rightly so. If you do this sort of thing casually, you're inviting addiction to creep up on yourself. Your artist may have a topical anesthetic gel, or you can embrace the total experience, including the pain.
Curious. Difference by taking 1tab 5/325 vicodin q 4 hrs vs take 1/2 tab q 2hrs? I don't like that feeling with a whole. Been on 4yrs since back surg
That's fine: Ultimately there's no difference - you can take 1-2 every 4 hours (maximum) and really can split that up any way you want. Do not exceed the 3200 mg of acetominophen per day limit unless your doctor OKs it.
Took 1/2 a vicodin for bad tooth pain, feeling anxious about it. Taking it with antibiotic, but afraid of narcotics. Anything to worry about?
No Contraindications: Those 2 medications are not known to be contraindicated with each others use; however, I agree with the other doctor above that this behavior may not be good, unless you have already seen a dentist and were prescribed these medications for an imminent procedure that will fix your obvious tooth problem. Make sure you are taking care of yourself, get your tooth fixed asap-you don't want to lose it.See 5 more doctor answers
My hips have arthritis in them. I take 15mg meloxicam and I am feeling worse some days! Can I take ibuprofen or vicodin in same day?
Not ibuprofen: You can take vicodin if that is prescribed to you for the pain as the Acetaminophen will not cause any issues related to the meloxicam. However, do not take Ibuprofen with our as they are both nsaids and can increase the side effects you may have, including GI upset and ulcers. If the current regimen is not helping, discuss with your physician other options like injections. Hope this helps!See 2 more doctor answers
Terrible joint pain, tired, anxiety, drepression, severe constip. Past history of lymes on paxil, (paroxetine) klonopin, and vicodin nothing helping feeling worse?
Lyme: Check for lyme coinfections. Sounds like chronic lyme related stuff to me. Find a doctor who knows how to treat chronic lyme.See 1 more doctor answer
You can't: If you are being tested, then you will be experiencing the consequences of your drug use. That is what is supposed to happen when you do things that are harmful to you. Someone helping you avoid those consequences is actually doing you harm, no matter what you may be thinking right now. Use this as an opportunity to look hard at your drug use and what it is possibly doing to your life.
Depends: Addiction is a behavior pattern that is abnormal (stealing/having sex for/hurting someone, etc) because you crave the medication. Typically you will become tolerant and dependent to the medication first. To at least stop the tolerance and dependence I would suggest using the med on a as needed basis infrequently to ward regular usage.

Day after partial meniscus removal surgery. Almost blacked out after getting up to go to the restroom. Taking Vicodin. Did I get up too fast?
Yes: If I understand correctly, the answer is yes; it is normal to get shingles at age 35, or even younger. Shingles is caused by the "sleeping" chicken pox virus becoming active and causing a painful blistering rash, at most any age. The shingles vaccine, recommended at age 60 or over, reduces the risk by about 50%. A good prevention resource is an iphone/ipad app called prevention checklist 2013.
Professional help: Hopefully you have been prescribed this by a physician. If so, that physician can help taper you off the medication. If this medication was not prescribed for you it would be best and safest to see a physician that can assist you. There are medications that are available that make withdrawal less uncomfortable, counseling is of tremendous benefit as well.
It depends: Addiction is a disease characterized by craving, thinking about med all the time, overusing (taking more than prescribed) and results in harm to the person (dui, loss of job, family, etc). Risk of addiction is based on genetic and environmental factors. Some people get addicted easily, some never do. Lortab is one of the most abused drugs on the market but most people don't develop an addiction.See 1 more doctor answer
