Had three wisdom teeth removed today but throwing up now, two separate times. Am taking hydrocodone for pain. Ate very little bland food. Why vomiting?
Side effect . Hydrocodone is an intermediate opiate analgesic which is metabolized to hydromorphone, the active metabolite. One of the side effects of opiate analgesics is nausea and vomiting. This side effect is more prominant in some patients and either must be discontinued to avoid the side effects or replaced with another analgesic which may not have the side effect.
Possible allergy. Possible hydrocodone allergy or taking too high of a dose. I would check with dentist to correct medicine and dosage immediately.
