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?

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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! ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Lower right side back pain. Hard to move. Very painful 3 days now. Been using I've 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. ...Read more
