I have been prescribed hydrocodone before and I get bad enough reactions that doctors said I'm allergic, but not to codeine or T3... is this not normal? Is there something different in the hydros? I always wanted to know.
I am allergic to hydrocodone not codeine... is this normal?

High hydros I vomit profusely, hallucinate, fevers, spins, itch, confusion, effects my eyes sort of like old 3d, you know picture on picture... that was during 3 days after a surgery... switched to codeine... no problems, later T3 because of effectiveness... that is when doctors said no more for you.
AnOdd; Yes this is really not normal But what can I say I can Use Hydrocodone but can't take codeine not a true allergy just the way my body act's to it. You don't say what kind of symptoms you get from hydrocodone,So it's hard to say.
These are out of the same family they are both in the opiates class of drugs. so really should be no problem.But do as I do and avoid the one you have problems with just to make sure.But if you had a real bad reaction and a true allergy you could not take either one.
