Vicodin Pneumonia Causes and Reviews


Pneumonia is an infection in one or both of the lungs. Many germs, such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi, can cause Pneumonia. You can also get Pneumonia by inhaling a liquid or chemical. People most at risk are older than 65 or younger than 2 years of age, or already have health problems.

Symptoms of Pneumonia vary from mild to severe. See your doctor promptly if you

  • Have a high fever
  • Have shaking chills
  • Have a cough with phlegm that doesn't improve or gets worse
  • Develop shortness of breath with normal daily activities
  • Have chest pain when you breathe or cough
  • Feel suddenly worse after a cold or the flu

Your doctor will use your medical history, a physical exam, and lab tests to diagnose Pneumonia. Treatment depends on what kind you have. If bacteria are the cause, antibiotics should help. If you have viral Pneumonia, your doctor may prescribe an antiviral medicine to treat it.

Preventing Pneumonia is always better than treating it. Vaccines are available to prevent pneumococcal Pneumonia and the flu. Other preventive measures include washing your hands frequently and not smoking.

Vicodin Pneumonia 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
