Is it ok to take hydrocodone after a TIA? Recently may have

Customer Question

Is it ok to take hydrocodone after a TIA? Recently may have had very 1st ever of sudden TIA incident after lying down for TV - lasted approx 1 hour / no eye pbms or facial or direct limb, etc. No confusion, stomach issues, etc. or other associated pbms. Capable of thinking thru complex riddles & poems memorized, etc. Only symptom was a sudden funny feeling of weakness causing wobbly legs. Take low doseage of Atenol & Levothyroxin & B-12 & - since this weekend - soy-based protein powder (am somewhat alergic to soy). Also spent several days lounging ((vacation, watching tv) & eating horribly! Today's exclusive foodintake was highcholesterol - high consumption of versharp cheddar-candy-chips, etc. NO real food! High consumption of drinking milk. Also - have been out of all meds for past 3 days -was to pick them up today. Hydrocodone is badly needed for shoulder replacement surgery required -past auto wreck totaled new car/BROKE 7 ribs, punctured lung, broke collar bone (required 2 surgeries & caused current advanced deterioration of shoulder cartilage). That's about it! Am otherwise healthy & able & at age 75 still working part time. Only real problem is much constant shoulder pain, thus requiring hydrocodone treatment available - otherwise very independent. Thx for reply.

Hi there ...

Thank you for the question ...

In reality Hydrocodone under recommended dosage is not contraindication in TIA .

This can be used for pain control in TIA when pain is not bearable .

So you can use it for shoulder pain .

Regards ***** ***** luck .

Please leave positive feedback for me .

Thanks .
