In brief: See below
If taken under the supervision of a physician the risk is manageable.
If taking them for recreation you are asking for trouble.

In brief: No
Narcotics are no more dangerous for a person with a known aneurysm than they are for a person without an aneurysm. People with aneurysms should avoid medications that will raise their blood pressure such as sudafed or other stimulants.

In brief: Narcotics/ aneurysm
When narcotics are used in proper doses for pain control, they are safe in patients with brain aneurysms provided the patient does not have any altered mental status.
