Hi I got prescribed hydrocodone 10/325 for a back injury. I was on them for a month and noticed that one of the side effects was decreased appetite and I lost a lot of weight. Losing weight is important for to help with the pain from back injuries.

When the pain reduced to a level I could cope with I stopped the hydro but got hungry again.

I was off it for 4 weeks and then made a considered decision to put myself on it again for another month.

Has anyone else used Hydro for this reason? Any advice would be appreciated?

As a final bit of info, I went cold turkey to get off 80-100mg per day and found it hard but easily manageable for me.
