From this study (2 months ago):
I gained weight rapidly and want to know if any of these medications or combination of any of them caused the weight gain.
in the last year I have had significant increase in bilateral hip joint pain with effusion, I have spent the last 1.5 years driving approx. 200 miles 5 days per week, I am a nurse
Trying to figure out if my symptoms are related to medications I am taking or due to chronic fatigue syndrome which I have been diagnosed with and maybe fibromyalgia or lumbar stenosis or MS.
Can you answer these questions (what is this?):

The use of Norco is causing heartburn. I.ve used various drugs with hydrocodone and Tylenol type drugs such as Lortab, Vicodin, etc. But I,ve never had one cause severe heartburn like this Norco does.

Has anyone else experienced side effects while taking this? I actually feel like I am being poisoned. Is there an alternative out there?
