  • From this study (5 months ago):

  • I have been taking Vicodin/Hydrocodone 500MG for at least 8 month I started to notice moderate pain in the abdominal area it is in the upper part, sometimes middle part it varies. Sometimes nausea develops but not so much as the discomfort in the abdominal region. Could this be due to taking Vicodin/Hydrocodone? The stomach discomfort had started almost 4 months ago and I still have it.
