Please contact the provider who prescribed the hydrocodone for the back pain. They will be able to answer your question, as they already are aware of your underactive thyroid. (I'm assuming the hydrocodone was prescribed to you for this back problem.)
And I'm assuming that the hydro condone was not your prescription.
Of course you know that you shouldn't take anyone else's Rx, especially for an opiate med.
That said, if you're taking thyroid replacement, such as Synthroid, Armoir Thyroid, or generic, levothyroxine, then opiate meds must be prescribed and monitored by your MD.
If you're having consistent pain- to the level that you felt you needed to take strong pain med, then you probably should see your MD to assure that the meds you're prescribed are the right dose, and safe for you.
My first draft was very sarcastic and calling her to task for taking someone else's Rx. Then it turned into an editorial about how this is an example of why the drugs are over-controlled and difficult to procure by chronic pain patients.
I was really on a roll, but decided I had jumped to too many conclusions and posted the generic response you see above. Maybe I should quit reading the webmd boards on insomnia nights.
I'm pain-free in my dreams and I know I will be pain-free one day in heaven. During my awake hours for now I am doing all I can for pain management. I will be seeing a pain manager physiatrist soon and hope he can do something for me. I'm even willing to try ablation if there is a chance it may work.
Good to see posts from you again, Dennis.
