my 16 year old had knee surgery and at first she was taking 6-8 vicodin 500mg a day now she has backed it off to about 2-4 a day she was in the shower today and kept complaining how hot she was and it wasn't hot in there at all next thing i know she said she was dizzy i reached in the shower to help hold her up and she blacked out and went limp for a couple minutes i then got her out of shower and all she wanted to do is lay on the cool bathroom floor
Yes, she may have a bit too much in her system or should have eaten before she took it. Give her some advil for the pain and make her eat and lay down so she wont get dizzy again and let some of it get out of her system. Make sure she eats before she takes it and give her a bit less than she had before and see how she is feeling in a hour. Pain meds can make you feel all those symptoms. If she is not better tomorrow, call the doctor. I am pretty sure she will be ok tomorrow though.
