General Satisfaction score :
Treato analyzes billions of patient discussions to understand what patients are saying about their experience with regard to their treatments, diseases and side effects. Treato algorithmically identifies patients' positive experiences about medications within their Web posts, for example acne that cleared up, high blood pressure that was reduced, a certain drug that "worked", and so forth. Treato aggregates all of these discussions to calculate how many positive patient posts each medication received, relative to other drugs. Note that positive patient posts about medications are always aggregated in relation to a specific condition, since the same medication may be used for more than one condition.

Hydrocodone Side Effects
I've had nausea from the use of hydrocodone in the past. I haven't added it to my list of meds I'm allergic to, but I think I need to. I know that it's not really an allergic reaction, but I reacted severely to hydrocodone after a basic medical procedure. I was given 2 pills before the procedure and took one pill over 24 hours later.

By the next day, I was bed-ridden with nausea, excess thirst, fever, and chills. I was down for 3 days. It's been almost a week since the initial dose, and I'm just barely getting back to normal. I'm still really thirsty. I'm drinking more than 32 ounces of water throughout the night and wake up feeling parched. I get lightheaded and nauseous if I don't keep drinking and eating every 15-20 minutes. Ugh!! I'm never taking this stuff again!!

That sounds exactly like the problem my mom and I have. Neither of us can take it without being bedridden with nausea and swimming head.

I was on those for bout 2 years after a surgery went wrong and I was left with severe permanent nerve damage . I didnt want anything stronger out of concern for dependency issues and never had those side effects , at all , initially you feel euphoric but it goes way and still treats the pain the worst I ever had was constipation , which is easily treated . I think elizy was sick , or allergic
