If you are allergic to codeine would you be allergic to Cefazolin?
there's no relationship between the two.
Cefazolin is different drug class, it is derived from penicillin. There is no literature that supports the claim it is contra indicated to sulfa allergic individuals.
I am not sure of the question but are you asking if there is Codeine in Co-Proxamol. If you are, then there is no Codeine in Co-Proxamol. Hope this helps.
can I take darvocet if am allergic to codeine?
Can I take morphine if allergic to codeine
It's likely, but not guaranteed, that being allergic to codeine will make you allergic to hydrocodone also.
no, vicodin is hydrocodone, which is a codeine.
Yes. There is no codeine in percocet.
Yes! My mother is allergic to both.
Demerol is an opiod just like codeine, so there is potential for an allergic reaction. I would not advise taking it without making sure your not allergic to it first.
Yes. Hydrocodone is a synthetic derivative of codeine. It does not contain the actual substance. I would also add that in my experience, the nausea seen with use of codeine is rarely seen with hydrocodone.
Yes, doctors and healthcare professionals often times prescribe Oxycodone (Percocet) to patients who are allergic to Codeine/Hydrocodone.
I don't think it does, because my dad is allergic to codeine, and he takes ibprofen.
Codeine allergic sufferers must AVOID morphine, hydrocodone, or oxycodone.
Yes. Excedrin Extra Strength and Excedrin Migraine contain acetaminophen, aspirin, and caffeine. None of these would trigger a codeine allergy.
your probably just allergic to the codeine in the Tylenol 3's
If you are allergic to opiates in general then taking roxicet is a terrible idea, there are tests that can be done to determine if your allergic or not.
If you are allergic to codeine can you take oxycodone and if so would the allergic reaction be the same?
It's technically possible for someone to exhibit an allergic response (hives, difficulty breathing) to codeine, but have no problem taking oxycodone. That said, the odds are probably against it, and as such should only be attempted at the discretion of a trained medical professional (with OTC antihistamines on-hand, just in case). Molecularly speaking, codeine and oxycodone are very similar. Codeine lacks the hydroxy group at the 14- position, and has a 7-8 double bond. Also… Read More
yes, but you will die.
No hydrocodone is an extract of codeine
Probably not. Check with your doctor.
Lortab is identical to Vicodin - it is a combination of hydrocodone and paracetomol (acetaminophen). If you are truly diagnosed allergic to Codeine (hydrocodone), you should not take it. Allergy to acetaminophen is extremely rare.
If you have an allergy to any drug/medication you should seek advice only from a qualified medical source. To rely on "heresay" is to possibly risk your life.
if by hydroco you mean hydrocodone, then yes and no. Hydrocodone is a semi-synthetic opioid that is made FROM codeine. Hydrocodone does not metabolize into codeine frome what ive read. If you are allergic to codeine then you will probably be allergic to hydrocodone too. If youre trying to pass a UA then you should be ok as most urine tests that test for opiates only test for morphine and codeine; neither of which are… Read More
I am alergic to Codeine can I take Coricidin II
no because they are both made out of opiates
It is extremely important to notify your pharmacist of all allergies. If the prescribed medication does contain the ingredient that you're allergic to (like codeine), it's their job to consult with the doctor to find another medication that will be just as effective that does not contain the ingredient that you are allergic to.
No... If it had pethidine or codiene I would be dead because I'm severely allergic to both. And amoxycillin is an antibiotic - they inject that seperately.
Tramadol and Tylenol (apap) are both non-narcotic pain relievers. They are not related to codeine. You should be fine.
There is no relation between demerol allergy and codeine allergy. Although, demerol allergy is very rare, you should be sure it is a real allergy..
other options are Tylenol with codeine, darvocet, percocet...
many different things can happen if allergic to codeine itching ,vomiting,stomach upset, hot/cold flashes, resperitory depression,,resperitory failure, thats just to name a few things i know about but everyone is different. some people can be allergic and still take the medicine but have to keep lower doses and supervision.
The first thing that you need to know is if it is a true allergy or simply a strong manifestation of the common opioid side effects. If you do have a true allergy to codeine, you could be allergic to some or all of the semi-synthetic preparations or you could be fine with them. The semi-synthetic codeines include hydrocodone, oxycodone, and any other -codone named medications. You should also be aware that drug allergies can… Read More
It is very dangerous to inject codeine because it causes the body to release a large amount of histamine (like an allergic reaction). This can cause pulmonary edema which is life-threatening. Best just to use codeine as your doctor intended.
Would you die if you are allergic to codeine and took thirty Tylenol with codeine No it's not something I would do?
Probably, unless you had prompt medical treatment. The Tylenol would kill you due to liver failure. If you survived you might well have permanent liver damage, which isn't nice. Look, why are you asking this? You're not planning to do anything silly, are you? Seriously, you have me worried.
No. They have similar effects on the bowel but work in very different ways and and are not chemically related. You may be allergic to both but this would be a coincidence rather than a causal relationship. Mike RGN ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Unfortunately, I am allergic to Codeine, and am unable to take: Imodium, Morphine, Vicodin, Oxycodone, or anything similar. Imodium makes everything 100 times worse: the diarrhea, stomach cramps, then add vomiting. The only thing I… Read More
Most probably. However, there are subtle differences that may allow you to take codeine. There are other opioids that you may be able to take. Hydrocodone (Vicodin) and oxycodone (Percocet) may work for you. You might also consider tramadol which is totally synthetic. Good Luck.
i am a student and have just been assigned a 92 year old patient with an allergy to demerol and morphine. What would be safe for pain ?
c2-a cascade diclofenac/baclofen/cycloben/lc help with a bruised rib?
What do you take if you have an allergic reaction to coedinewhat do you if you are allergic to codeine would you be allergic to vicodin?
Benadryl is a good choice and any other antihistamine will help. Keep in mind that a reaction codeine or to any narcotic is like an allergy (itching, hives, etc) is really a side effect. Narcotics will cause direct histamine release from the Allergy cells(Mast cells) For this reason Vicodin (Hydrocodone) most probably will also cause the same reaction. The reactions may be different at different doses and some patients will tolerate alternatives.
Tylenol, Aspirin, Naproxen (Aleve in America), Ibuprofen, ketorolac, (basically any NSAID), darvocet, hydrocodone (in most circumstances), Oxycodone, dilaudid, morphine, fentanyl, meperidine, methadone, the list goes on. Actually codeine is a pretty crappy pain reliever anyway, you're not missing much. You'd probably get better results from ketorolac, ibuprofen or Naproxen even though they are available over the counter. Ahh, but the power of suggestion is strong though isn't it? Most of these medications are codeine derivatives… Read More
Cefazolin has better activity for gram positive bacteria. However, it does have some limited gram negative activity as well.
you would be allergic to anything with nuts in it
Are you allergic to codeine? An allergy would be a reaction that causes swelling of the throat and/or tongue and difficulty breathing. If this happens go to the ER immediately. Other drugs of similar strength would include Ultram, Ibuprofen, Advil or full strength Tylenol. Ultram has some similarities to codeine but probably not close enough to cause any problems.
codiene will have no effect if you are taking morphine - morphine in value exceeds morphine by 1/1000
It is very similar. Very few people can tolerate Oxycodone when they are allergic to Codeine. The basis of most prescription pain relievers is a derivative of Codeine. Unfortunately, I am severely allergic to Codeine, and the only pain reliever I am able to tolerate is Demerol, because it is 100% synthetic. I cannot even take over-the-counter Imodium, as it is made with Codeine. They have tried Morphine, Vicodin, Lortab, all of the "-odones", all… Read More
Basically yes. Codeine base is not very water soluble, so it may be combined with a dilute strong acid, such as sulfuric acid. This make the codeine much more soluble, but it is no longer codeine base, but codeine sulfate. If it was hydrochloric acid used instead, you would have codeine hydrochloride instead. Acetic acid would give you codeine acetate, etc...... Gram for gram, codeine sulfate has a little less codeine then the same mass… Read More
Cocaine and codiene are in completley different drug groups. (unless the cocaine happens to have been cut with codiene)
If you break out in a rash after taking any medication, that means you are allergic to it. Stop taking it and call your doctor.
