Question
I recenyly injured my back ( a recurring lower back problem, usually muscular in origin)
Started taking oxycodone 5 mg. for pain, and noticed that I was wheezing, and my throat felt a bit sore. Now it seems like bronchitis, with low grade fevers about 99.4.
Is this a partial allergic reaction, or a coincidence? Have taken this drug before, during and after back surgery, no problems. Going to ENT tomorrow as I also have mouth ulcers which are getting worse.

Brief Answer:
It is most likely coincidence .

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX
Thanks for the query.
As per your clinical history it appears that you are having respiratory track infection.
Since you have taken oxycodone 5 mg before with no allergic reactions , it is most likely coincidence . But oxycodone can aggravate your dry mouth & respiratory problem . So please consult your treating doctor to change oxycodone to some safer pain killer.
I am happy to hear that you are going to ENT tomorrow for your mouth ulcers .
If I were your treating doctor, I would advice you Plenty of fluids , antiseptic mouthwash , Vitamin C , artificial saliva spray for symptomatic treatment & like to investigate and manage accordingly.
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
Regards.

Hi Doc my name is Jash, 29, 5'2" in height, and weighs 102 lbs., married. I am having this dry cough since I was young and had a history of bronchitis when i was 1 year old.Just recently, Im having colds, sore throat, productive cough and excessive mucus that bothers me so much especially at night. I took muculytic syrup and capsules, natural cough remedies such as lemon and ginger but i think there's no improvement, Cough still bothers me and it gets even harder and dryer that sometimes i may experience tightness of the chest,and one thing that makes me worried is that we're in the process of having a baby. I am a year married but still wanting to have a child, Does having this (severe) cough would greatly affect of our desire to pregnancy?What are the foods that i need to get rid off that may trigger severe cough and foods that are healthy to the lungs?and if ever I am a week pregnant now then i happened to take this muculytic syrups does it affect the child? i am hoping that my query will be given clarity. Thank you so much doc.

My 8 year old has a croupy cough which comes out mor ein morning and night and when she is running around so we have restricted activity. She has no fever or other symptoms. She has been on a steroid now twice a day since Saturday. She went to school today but the cough sounds even worse now. I also have been givign her abuterol inhaler twice a day as well. My younger daughter had bronchitis last week. Wondering if she needs a nebulizer. Her breathing though seems fine. I would have thought the abuterol would have done the trick and this is day three of the meds. Help!
