Question: Hi, I'm taking 5-500 vicodin pills as of right now. I have to take 2-3 to kill my migraine(I've had them since I was 6)I've been taking them like this for the past 2 months or so. Also I get these migraines ALLOT. I'm having trouble getting rid of them with vicodin more and more(I have been on dozens of meds to releav the pain, and narcotics are the only thing that seems to work.) I am worried that they are hurting my liver, since I have to take them 3-5 many 6 times a week. I have a appoitment at the migrane clinic in the childrens hospital, and vicodin just isn't working well anymore. What med should I mention to the doctor, so I don't have to take so much vicodin. I have tried anti-antihistamine and they don't work at all preety much(besides toradole which only worked for a while before the migrane returned). I am 15 5'7 and 110 lbs, I have a massive tolorence for narcotics(it took 2 delloded shots to kill a migrane about 2 weeks ago I spelt the mede name wrong probably) Any suggestions would be great.

No, Vicodin ends up giving you a headache when it wears off. I would definitely get a different pain killer. Also, you should take a vitamin called Milk Thistle for your liver and drink plenty of water. I was on a lot of pain pills and over the counter pills for 5 years and the doctors could not believe how good of shape my liver was in.

Always take your meds as prescribed. Read the drug insert and precautions. Be mindful of serious reactions such as: difficulty breathing, rash, redness, itching. Have someone drive you to the ER if you have any of those. Minor side effects include: dry mouth, constipation, upset stomach. Be prepared for a little depression tomorrow...especially if you are a woman approaching a menstrual cycle. Vicodin is the #1 over prescribed medication on the market! There are alternatives for acute pain depending on what the problem is? ie: ice packs, Tylenol....

start off as u did with one..increase another half within the hr...if still bad at the end of 6 hrs then double up.. they can constipate u so b careful. also if u take more and more and start to get hooked they can actually make you hurt more..

vicodin is probably not the best for migraines. when i take it i get really nauseous and get a bad headache. maybe percocet or darvocet would work better! good luck!

ask YOUR doctor which pain reliever is right for you, he would know best, not people on the internet

one is not necessarily stronger than the other. everyone has different responses to narcotics, what works for someone wont work for someone else. so i cant tell you what will work best for you. a lot of times the percocet can cause more nausea if taken on an empty stomach and can cause more constipation. percocet is 5mg oxycodone and 325mg of tylenol vicoden is 5mg hydrocodone and 500mg of tylenol. thats what the fractions are.
