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
