Vicodin Constipation Causes and Reviews


Constipation means that a person has three or fewer bowel movements in a week. The stool can be hard and dry. Sometimes it is painful to pass. At one time or another, almost everyone gets constipated. In most cases, it lasts a short time and is not serious.

There are many things you can do to prevent Constipation. They include

  • Eating more fruits, vegetables and grains, which are high in fiber
  • Drinking plenty of water and other liquids
  • Getting enough exercise
  • Taking time to have a bowel movement when you need to
  • Using laxatives only if your doctor says you should
  • Asking your doctor if medicines you take may cause Constipation

It's not important that you have a bowel movement every day. If your bowel habits change, however, check with your doctor.

Vicodin Constipation Reviews

Wed, 26 Jan 2011

I have cramps after 2 months of taking Vicodin. Do you think it is from the medication? I only take 1/2 of a pill twice a day.

thanks, Marie

Sun, 11 Apr 2010
I don't have a question, more like a statement to add to the Vicodone side effects. I had surgery on my lower back-I weigh 163 lbs/57' tall. A few days after my surgery I ended up with severe distention where I looked 6 months pregnant all the way from under my diaphragm to my lower abdomen. I could not fit into anything but the loosest yoga pants that I own The surgeon said he had no idea what caused it- I finally had to go to the ER to get this resolved. they had taken X-rays the Dr. on call there said it was a reaction to the Vicodone where I ended up with "lazy gut" as he referred to it. They had had patients come in with this before, so he knew recommended suppositories to handle the issue. Its been slowly going down, but it has been almost a month. I would not recommend this drug for pain management after surgery -Ever! -L
