Pain Medication If Allergic To Codeine
Is hydrocodone an anti-inflammatory in addition to pain reliever? Can i take it if i'm allergic to tramadol?
Taking Ms Contin (morphine) for chronic pain. I'm allergic to it. Can you suggest an alternative pain medication other than oxy, perc, vicodin?
Herbs: Medicinal cannabis if it is legal in your state is an alternative to narcotic pain medications. Also eating a more alkaline diet my help. Acupuncture. Deep meditation. There are various herbs but this is not my specialty. Recommend following up with a pain management specialist and/or homeopathic specialist. There are also doctors of natural medicine possibly in your area. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Unlikely!: Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) and vicodin are different trade names for a combination of hydrocodone (a narcotic pain reliever) and Acetaminophen (tylenol). It is very unlikely that you would be allergic to one and not the other, as both Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) and vicodin contain the same active ingredients. However, if this is a question, consult an allergist who can test you for sensitivities to different triggers. ...Read more
Probably not.: Sulfa allergy doesn't increase likelihood of allergy to other meds. Most reactions to Codeine not allergic but side-effects of codeine/narcotics (gi upset, constipiation, sedation, itching, hives). Codeine directly causes histamine release without the participation of allergic antibodies. Also, sulfa allergy is only to sulfa antibiotics, not other types of sulfas, e.G diurectics, diabetes meds. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Stop the medication: The first thing to do is immediately stop the medication causing the allergic reaction. You can also take an over-the-counter antihistamine (benadryl, zyrtec, (cetirizine) claritin) to help the symptoms. However, if the allergic reaction is severe (ie lip swelling, throat swelling, difficulty breathing or swallowing, etc) you should immediately be see at the er for further evaluation and treatment. ...Read more
Is there any pain medication I can take if I am allergic to ultram, nsaids, vicodon , and percoset. Taking Antihistameine does not relieve any symptom?
Allergies Sev Meds: What type of reaction did you have with Ultram "all" NSAIDS, Vicodin, & Percocet? Many people confuse true allergies to meds with standard side effects -such as nausea. The type of pain makes the difference with treatment options. You're young so you must think about long term effects on your liver & kidney. Gabapentin. Lyrica, (pregabalin) Cymbalta, Topamax, Elavil, Pamelor are examples of other meds for tx ...Read more
Opiate allergies?: It depends. Alot of folks claim to be allergic to various medications, when in fact, they have side effects. Since we do not know what your reaction was to Morphine, it's kinda hard to predict what you might experience with other drugs. My advice is to try and avoid taking Opiates on a regular basis, as you may become dependent and then have withdrawal symptoms when you don't take the Opiates. ...Read more
Maybe: A examination is needed if you are allergic to other medicine and other materials. ...Read more
Most likely: Naprosyn (naproxen) is not directly related to Acetaminophen so it would be unlikely that you would have a sensitivity to acetaminophen. If you've never taken Acetaminophen before i'd suggest taking a small dose to confirm it is in fact safe. If symptoms of an allergic reaction do occur seek medical attention quickly. ...Read more
Very allergic to morphine, vicodin, and NSAIDs. is tramadol an ok drug for me or am I likely to have allergic reaction?
What is 'allergy'?: Morphine and hydrocodone cause a great deal of histamine release, which results in itching, hives, nausea and other GI symptoms, and NSAIDs can cause a great deal of stomach irritation. Neither of these are really allergies, which requires that the immune system be involved in the problem. Tramadol is chemically unrelated to either of these classes of drugs, but also can cause histamine release. ...Read more
Having major surgery. Not allergic to Advil (ibuprofen) or aspirin. Reacted to pain meds in hosp b4. Not sure what meds tho. Is there an allergy test to confirm?
Surgery meds: No allergy tests are available to detect pain medication allergies. Some people have adverse reactions to pain medications like narcotics that are not true allergies. You should discuss all your medications and your past reactions with both your anesthesiologist and surgeon prior to the procedure. Aspirin and advil/motrin are avoided prior to procedure due to potential bleeding complications. ...Read more
If I am allergic to nsaids can I take oxycodone-aspirin? What are my actual options for pain relief? Also allergic to acetamenophine
Depends: If your allergy is to a specific nsaid like naproxen (more rare), then yes. If your allergy is not IgE-medicated, but rather causes hives or perhaps other side effects such as gastrointestinal discomfort, then yes. Side effects could be treated. If your allergy is to all nsaids (such as in a aspirin-exacerbated respiratory disease), then no unless desensitized. See an Allergist to differentiate. ...Read more
