Is it safe to take vicodin while pregnant?

Is it safe to take vicodin while pregnant?

Yes, but...: We do try to avoid narcotics when we can. Vicodin has a narcotic and tylenol (acetaminophen) in it. The narcotic does get to the baby a bit. Babies born after mom has been on a narcotic every day for a while do go through a withdrawal. So we try to avoid it, especially long term. But for an acute pain, it is safe in pregnancy.

Is it safe to take vicodin together with carisoprodol?

Is it safe to take vicodin together with carisoprodol?

Vicodin soma (carisoprodol): Well this is easy - vicodin is a short acting agent and as such should only be used for short periods of time. Soma (carisoprodol) - is a very dangerous medication - it has very little effect on muscles and gets converted to Meprobamate which is highly addictable. Most pain doctors do not write for soma (carisoprodol). So it not recommended to use both.

Probably not: Giving Vicodin and NyQuil to an elderly person is probably not a good idea and runs the risk of causing over sedation and even potentially a state of delirium.

Is it safe to take vicodin for back pain after drinking three beers?

Is it safe to take vicodin for back pain after drinking three beers?

No: Alcohol and hydrocodone are both central nervous system depressants (cns depressants). This means they both can slow the functioning of the brain. Importantly, both hydrocodone and alcohol can cause respiratory depression (shallow or infrequent breathing). Drinking alcohol while taking hydrocodone may increase your risk for serious reactions.

Is it safe to take vicodin for a concussion? I have vicodin from a recent surgery and my headache is awful.

Vicodin: Narcotic medications are certainly not the mainstay of concussion treatment. See your physician for concussion work up and treatment. Pain medications can mask serious problems not only cognitively but intracranially.

If I'm allergic to codein (hives), but I have taken percocet in the past with no reaction, is it safe to take vicodin? Vicodin was prescribed for pain after surgery that I will have this thursday.

It prob not allergy: All opiates cause release of histamine, and morphine, Codeine and Demerol have the most, and oxycodone, Methadone and fentanyl do it the least. However, they all can cause some histamine release, and some people get major problems with all of them. Hydrocodone, which is the incredient in vicodin, is intermediate in doing this. You could take a Benadryl (diphenhydramine) with it - talk to your doctor.

Is it safe to take vicodin 12hrs after taking tramadol? I have been on tramadol for a chronic issue. I was just recently in an auto accident and hurt my neck. It is the worst at night trying to sleep. So the same dr prescribed me to take a vicodin before

Yes, it's OK: Tramadol would be out of your system in about 8 hours and if the Vicodin is taken at bedtime the only potential issue is sleepiness. Which would help you to deal with the night pain. So go ahead, especially if your doc prescribed them both and recommended both, and if you occasionally need both to control the pain.

Is it safe to take apex and vicodin?

Apex and vicodin: The only reference to apex I could find was that it is a medication syringe. Vicodin is designed as a tablet to be swallowed whole. It should not be crushed, or tampered with in any way. This is responsible use of medications. As a rule vicodin has to be swallowed whole and taken according to the md's strict instructions.

Is it safe to take adipex and acaipure together?

Is it safe to take adipex and acaipure together?

Tricky question: Adipex does have some drug-drug-interactions, but you are asking about an herbal (?) product. It is possible for drug-food-herbal interactions, perhaps the physician who put you on adipex or will put you an this should take the time to answer this for you. Until then be careful with taking any over-the-counter product with any prescription medication.
