Drug Interactions / Side Effects board

I get a migraine headache the morning after taking Vicodin, usually if I needed 2 half tabs - 1/2 about 6 pm and the other half at bedtime (can't take whole one or I feel like I am going to pass out about 2 hrs. after taking it.) Dilaudid IV or oral will do the same thing.....so I learned to make sure the surgeon orders my Imitrex as needed whenever I have surgery. I have had two different cervical ACDFs in the past 4 years.

Those of us that have a history of migraines may find some of the narcs do precipitate a migraine. Do you have migraines? If not, then call your doc for reassurance - you may just need a different pain medication. Pain, stress, and many other factors can contribute to developing a migraine.
