Why would you want to take them? If u r in pain goto the drs. They would know.
These are questions you need to ask your doctor. sara
I am also bipolar and I have taken enough vicodin to kill a horse, and I never noticed any mood problems or manic phases while I was taking this. I had some problems with both after I quit, but I believe this was partly the withdrawal symptons I was experiencing and had very little to do with my previous(latent?)bipolar problems.
The last thing that people like us need(or prone to depression) is vicodin and oxy, because it will temporarily create a artificial sense of well being and then you will have to keep increasing the quantity because of tolerance issues to keep feeling "better"(I was taking 12-14 10/325 a day at the end) and you will then become a drug addict like I did.
Please stay away from the pills they are poison. I am clean exactly 6 months today and I feel great without them. I wish you all the best and hope you make the right decision.
talking to your doctor is the best bet...if there is no reason to take a narcotic, then I wouldnt add any extra problems to my life
