vicodin side affects

my neighbor is approximately 72 years old, taking vicodin, complaining of not being able to remember or concentrate. I was wondering if this could be a side affect of his pain medication?

Re: vicodin side affects

i dont think it is a side effect (on vic for 3 yrs) .... maybe it just has to do with his age?

Re: vicodin side affects

it could possibly be age and the meds combined but i would have to agree that it is probably age. it may be a side effect of the condition as well. i have fibro and at age 43 (ugh lol) i have days where i feel, act, and think like i am 72. it would probably help to know the condition and the dosage of the meds. if this is concerning your neighbor they really need to talk to their doctor about it. at that age, memory loss of any kind needs to be addressed. god bless, morgy porgy

I've learned that with meds what might not bother one person might cause all kinds of problems with another. The neighbor needs to talk to his doctor,soon. Fred
