For chronic pain, taking cap, under eye swelled. What could be causing the swelling?

For chronic pain , I take norco 5/325 3 times a day, but I was taking vicodin 5/500 and he changed it to the norco. Under my eyes swell anytime I take pain medications , and since I have to take it all the time the swelling never goes away. I did a test on myself and stopped taking it fir a day or so and the swelling got a little better, do you think this could be causing the swelling?

Hi welcome to HCM .

Your symptoms could be an allergic reaction to Vicodin tablet. Consult your doctor when you are symptomatic so he can rule out the cause and try changing the prescription for you.
Take care.
