Which is stronger, vicodin or morphine? Out of the two, is one less likely to cause nausea?

See below: Vicodin (hydrocodone) is more potent than morphine. 10 mg of hydrocodone is equal to about 15 mg of morphine. I would say that I see less nausea with hydrocodone.

Took 10mg Vicodin last night around 5pm. Woke up with nausea and took 50mg of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) around 11am next day. Is this okay and safe?

Depends: But common side effects of drugs in the opiate class (such as Vicodan) include nausea and drowsiness. It is ok to take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) but whether it helps or not is another issue In the future, be sure to inform your doctor about this experience since you will likely react to other opiates as well with the same symptoms.

How do I get rid of nausea caused by painkillers, specifically vicodin?

How do I get rid of nausea caused by painkillers, specifically vicodin?

D/W your physician.: Probably the simplest way to reduce nausea is with ginger. You can drink slightly flattened ginger ale or nibble on crystallized ginger. Or pour boiling water over freshly sliced organ ginger & steep x 5 min in a covered pot. Sip.

Vasectomy @ 1pm (2-8-16). Lingering, mild nausea. Is this normal? Vicodin & Valium taken 1 hr before. 3 valium taken within 4 hrs after. 29 yo male.

Vasectomy @ 1pm (2-8-16). Lingering, mild nausea. Is this normal? Vicodin & Valium taken 1 hr before. 3 valium taken within 4 hrs after. 29 yo male.

Here are some...: Have you had similar events especially at taking pain medication like Vicodin? Clinically, vasectomy alone very unlikely causes lingering nausea. Practically, do not use Vicodin if having no undue swelling and have a good rest and sleep; that will help. In my practice, I have almost never prescribe pain medication. More? Check with your surgeon for no complication or drug side effect, etc.

Had a route canal yesterday doctor prescribe vicodin every 4-6hrs I take but makes me dizzy, nauseas and the pain is not away 100% why? Is this normal?

Had a route canal yesterday doctor prescribe vicodin every 4-6hrs I take but makes me dizzy, nauseas and the pain is not away 100% why? Is this normal?

No Pain: Start off with 1/2 vicodin every two hrs for 6 hrs and then the every 4 hrs max 5 in 24hrs. The pain will never be 100 % gone! They are only to get you more comfortable until your body heals, then you stop them. They should only be 5/325mg size especially if you have not used this kind before. Your side effects are not unusual when you use this med for the first time. Destroy all not used!

What over-the-counter pain medication can I take after having a laparoscopy? Vicodin makes me feel sick so I want to take an alternative.

What over-the-counter pain medication can I take after having a laparoscopy? Vicodin makes me feel sick so I want to take an alternative.

Two Options: 1-acetaminophen (aka tylenol) 2-nsaids (ibuprofen, naprosyn, (naproxen) advil, motrin, aleve). Most people find the nsaids more beneficial--in fact, I advise my patients to take them "around-the-clock" for the first few days. Although these are "over the counter", there are restrictions to using them--make sure it's ok with your surgeon.

I have a head ache that is causing nausea. I took 2 aspirin at 4:30pm and again at 9:30pm without relief, in fact it is getting worse. Is it safe to take 1/2 of a vicoden on top of the aspirin?

I have a head ache that is causing nausea. I took 2 aspirin at 4:30pm and again at 9:30pm without relief, in fact it is getting worse. Is it safe to take 1/2 of a vicoden on top of the aspirin?

Yes: But this sounds like a migraine and taking vicodins or lots of Aspirin for migraines I can't recommend. Look into preventive and more specific remedies. Sometimes the Aspirin and vicodins and other pain remedies can actually start to cause headaches...We call these rebound headaches. Also both Acetaminophen and asa can cause gastritis so watch out there.

Status post cholecystectomy 4 days ago. Today, very dizzy and nauseas. Taking Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) for pain, but I have it even when I don't take the pain medicine.

Consult with: Your surgeon immediately, because it could be bleeding, bile leak, infection, or some other surgical complication, especially if you have fever, vomiting, distention, or jaundice. Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) is a narcotic pain med, which sometimes can cause ileus or constipation.

Ok to take vicodin n nyquil together?

Vicodin + NyQuil: Do not take both of these drugs together. Nyquil has a significant amount of alcohol. This combination would be the same as taking vicodin with an alcohol beverage. This combination will have an additive depressive effect on your body systems and could very well have serious adverse consequences.

Lower right side back pain. Hard to move. Very painful 3 days now. Been using ive flexerill n vicodin no help. Pain does not radiate down?

SEE YOUR DOCTOR: Your medications indicate that you have very many complex medical conditions - hypertension, diabetes, probable rheumatoid arthritis, depression and severe coronary disease. Your pain needs to be evaluated by your physician in the context of all your other problems. I understand you want relief, but it is ultimately more important to find a cause and treat it directly, and not mask the symptoms.

Why is vicodin so bad?

It depends: Your question is somewhat vague. All medications when appropriately prescribed for its indication and taken as directed by a physician should not be a problem. Vicodin is hydrocodone and Acetaminophen and is indicated for moderate to severe pain. The issue is the misuse/abuse of the medication. It has the potential for physical dependence, cause respiratory depression when taken in excess & death.

I am trying to get a script for my Vicodin.?

In person evaluation: If you need a prescription for an opioid like Vicodin, you need to seek an inperson evaluation for appropriateness. An online physician source isn't a feasible, or appropriate, mechanism for something like this. I do wish you the best of luck though and hope your issue can be addressed sooner rather than later.
