If side effects do occur, they tend to be minor and easy to treat. However, there are some potentially serious Vicodin problems that require immediate medical attention. Contact your healthcare provider if you experience problems such as:
- Severe constipation
- Severe drowsiness
- Signs of liver damage, such as yellowing of the whites of the eyes or skin, dark urine, or upper-right abdominal (stomach) pain
- Signs of an allergic reaction, including an unexplained rash, hives, itching, unexplained swelling, wheezing, or difficulty breathing.
Other Vicodin warnings and precautions apply to women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, as well as people who have certain allergies. Also, you may not be able to take Vicodin if you have certain medical conditions, such as liver disease, hypothyroidism, or a lung disease of any sort.
