I was just prescribed with hydrocodone for pain in my ear, and I'm unsure about what it will do to me. How will it exactly affect me?

In general less pain: Hydrocodone will provide modest relief of mild-moderate pain, and usually doesn't cause many other issues. It can be constipating, and some people get nausea with it. If taken in large enough doses for long enough, it can cause physical dependency. Your doctor should try to discover the cause of the pain, and to treat that directly. ...Read more

Is it safe to take claritin-d every day? Are there long term side effects and what does pseudoephedrine interact with, if anything?

It increases vasoconstriction and this has a variety of effects including more work for the heart and elevated blood pressure. There are other medications that can help with congestion. See ent/allergist. ...Read more

Follow instructions on otc medications if you want to use them safely, and tell the doctor prescribing the vicodin about your use of other medications with it. ...Read more
