 4  Pain after heart bypass surgery mild constipation Not an easy withdrawl. Possibly, it was because my pain was not entirely gone when I ended the withdrawl. M 68 60 days

 3  Osteoarthritis & Fibromyalgia I get a headache in the back of my head and neck when I sleep after taking it. It also makes me itchy and gripy. It caused my husband to loose all interest in sex and he became addicted. I do not have addictive personality traits so even with the euphoria it sometimes produces I only take it rarely. It does nothing for my pains. Some people swear by it. NOt me. I think used in the right way it may help some people. But extreme care should be taken to avoid liver failure and if you have any signs of addiction get off it. Take only as needed. F 54 10 years

 3  Pain from an accident At first extreme nausea and just feeling horrible all over. Do not take this drug unless you absolutely have to. The sick feeling soon goes away and before you know it you are hooked and it is a monkey on your back. It can make an addict out of anyone, it knows no bounderies. It is not really great at killing pain, it makes you not care as much about the pain F 55 7 years

 5  WISDOM TOOTH EXTRACTION While taking these meds, I get an EXTREME jolt of energy...to the point where I can't even sit down. Other than that there are no side effects. I can see how people get addicted to this as it gives me the energy to do pretty much anything I want. F 21 6 days

 5  Severe degenerative disc disease Mild constipation, mild disruption in sleep if taken at bedtime, very little sedation unless already sleepy For 21 years I have dealt with pain in my lower lumbar area. A combination of genetic predisposition and heavy lifting in the gym (since I was 17 years old) resulted in episodes of moderate to severe back pain. It began with episodes every 18 months then became more frequent from 1986 to 2002, when it became more chronic and included severe sciatica in left hip and leg. Three MRIs since 2003 have revealed worsening severe degenerative disc disease in vertebrae T12 thru L5, along with lumbar stenosis, spondololysthesis, arthritis, you name it! I tried Neurontin (too sedating), Ultram (non-narcotic but ineffective), Percocet (too strong), spinal corticoid injections (ineffective), Lyrica (VERY dizzy) and plain old physical therapy - all to no avail. The hydrocodone (either lortab 10/500 or Norco 10/325)work perfectly every time, with very few side effects and no euphoria. Over all these years, I have to have built up some tolerance (I went from 5mg to 7.5mg to 10mg)but am still able to k M 48 21 years

 2  interstitalcystitis,vulvodynia,PFD generic version of Lortab 7.5, depressed and irritable does not seem to work for my pain. 1 tab does nothing, 1.5 or 2 tabs make me depressed and irritable. Takes two hours w/ 2 tabs to get small amount of pain relief, and but then only 2 hrs of pain relief. Am concerned about acetominophen/liver damage so want to try something that contains no acetominophen. maybe ms contin? i have real pain...did not experience any buzz. F 39 30 days

 1  migraines and back/shoulder pain I was prescribed 10/325 potency, 1/2-1 tablet as needed. I took 1/2 last week. It was great at relieving the pain, and I actually felt a sense of euphoria. It wore off quickly, and after that, I felt some mild anxiety, but brushed it off, thinking it was just a contrast to how good I felt shortly before. Last night I took another 1/2, and today I've been increasingly anxious and fearful all day, until right now I'm in an advanced state of anxiety and can't seem to do anything about it. I didn't know anxiety/fear can be a side effect until I looked it up just now. It is unusual but can happen. I'm afraid even more because anxiety raises my high blood pressure. I feel absolutely dreadful and scared. I will never take this drug again. F 57 2 days

 4  Post surgery pain relief constipation, itchy belly, vivid and strange dreams - some very sexual, mental fatigue (getting easy words confused, forgetfulness) This definitely took the edge off of the pain, but I found that I really didn't care about anyone or anything while I was taking it. At this point (6 days in) I want to continue taking this for the pain relief, but have decided to stop since I know that it is already affecting how I feel about my toddler son and my husband.

 5  gut pain; clear tests fatigue, sleepiness. pleasant buzz (why some people take it). double edged sword. can be extremly helpful in surviving your pain, and it can be addicting, physically and mentally. i am now weaning myself off of a 4 year run. i am suspicious that it is now causing the pain that i originally took it for. its a bitch getting off. secret to having it be an effective tool: don't take it regularly, don't dose more than 10mg at a time unless doctor advises. take on an empty stomach with milk/food a must within 15 minutes or you might get nausious. or you can just take it with milk. there are many very similar drugs under different names. they all come from the opium poppy, and are thought to have been discovered over 3,000 years ago. and with all the pharmicological development we have had, 'they' can't find anything that works better.

 5  dysmenorrhea Some drowsiness, sleep disturbance, urinary retention, constipation, and dry mouth. Some dizziness and the usual feel of relaxation that comes from opiates. Withdrawal does happen if you stop use suddenly, but addiction and tolerance are easily avoidable if you take a few days away from it every week. I say hydrocodone is the greatest medication ever produced. It gave me my life back and allowed me to live normally. 10 -15 mgs will completely knock out even the severe, stabbing abdominal/pelvic pain. Elevates mood as well to treat the depression that comes with chronic pain. Before hydro, my life was planned around monthly torture sessions, when I would literally wish for death. I was so desperate for relief that I turned to alcohol and any drugs I could get my hands on, meanwhile getting ulcers from chronic use of Advil and other OTC meds. On Hydro I can be physically active and am no longer a prisoner of pain. This is truly a wonder drug that should be easily available to everyone. Instead it is tightly controlled and people are living in pain and forced to take dangerous and ineffective nsaids. Many doctors are reluctant to prescribe it, and that is terrible since OTC meds are so damaging to the liver and kidneys, while opiates cause no such harm. Someday I hope F 29 3 years

 5  Breakthrough Pain from AS mild dizziness if I haven't taken it in awhile. I take this as needed for breakthrough pain with my ankylosing spondilitis. I currently use fentanyl patches for round the clock pain relief. This medication works very well when my pain becomes aggrevated because I tried to do too much or I lose control of the pain due to stress. I use the 10/325 strength and take anywhere from half a tablet to two tablets as needed. I generally use between 10 and 50 tablets a month depending on the weather and my activity level. Have never noted any withdrawal symptoms from using the medication at this level. I have also noted that the Mallinckrodt generic tends not to work near as well as the other brands do though not sure why. M 38 12 years

 2  pain from cosmetic surgery none noteworthy, a little lethargic the first hour or two. For me, hydrocodone DOES NOT work! I've taken hydrocodone on three occasions in the past three years - less than 10 days each occasion and found tylenol just as effective. When I told my plastic surgeon that the hydrocodone was not working he asked me if I were accustomed to taking lots of pain killers like I was a crack addict. I told him that I rarely had occasion to take anything stronger than tylenol. They just didn't work for me. M 46 10 days

 3  hern disc/ disentigrating discs Itching, agitation, difficulty breathing, difficulty sleeping. dulls the pain but makes me want to be be divorced and I am sure makes my wife want to divorce me. I am a very cranky/mean person on this stuff. Things that would normally irritate me are blown into major conflicts and problems. Also makes me feel at ease when spending money, thats not good. I need to have an operation, find something else or quit using this stuff. M 51 7 days

 4  Herniated vertebral discs Euphoria, sense of wellness, and pain-relief. Followed by very quick tolerance buildup--an increasing need for more of the drug to achieve the same effect. Hydrocodone is okay, but very addictive and dangerous when you stop taking it. The withdrawal symptoms are every bit as bad as the pain you are seeking relief from. Avoid this drug and other opiates whenever possible and take as little of them as possible. M 24 2 years
