Discussions that mention vicodin

Pain Management board


I was on MS contin 15 mgs 2 x's a day and work a full time job. I did not find it was sedating but it did make me sick to me tummy, so bad that I called my doc and went off it and back on my vicodin until I see her in 2 more weeks.
Did you find that it helped with your pain right away? I might have been on too low of a dose but I really did not get very much benefit from it and I was on it for 2 weeks.

I felt terrable for three days after I stopped taking it, even thought I went back to vicodin. It was the fist LA med that I tryed.

My doc told me to stop taking it if I was not getting relief and it was causing me to be sick to my tummy. She said we would try something else when I see her in 2 weeks.

I have to say, I am a bit scared of the LA meds, I was on 15 mgs 2x a day for 2 weeks and had withdrawl symptoms when I stopped. I was supreised because I thought it woiuld take a bit longer then that to become dependant. It also could have been that I was in a very pain pain flair when I stopped taking it.

I hope it works out for you.
