Ever heard of hydrocodone-APAP causing leg problems?

I have been trying to pinpoint my severe leg weakness and pain. I am beginning to wonder if it is the hydrocodone-APAP. This is my thinking:

I take Percocet in the morning and the hydro in the afternoon. In the morning I have somewhat above 'mild' leg problems, but in the afternoon it gets so bad my legs weigh a ton and hurt so bad I can barely walk or pick them up to take a step. If I pick anything up that weighs over 5 pounds and try to walk I can't do it. Do you think this is a drug reaction, or just a coincidence because I have been up 6-7 hours?

I am making a note for the doctor. Lyrica and statin drugs do the same thing to me plus severe muscle cramps. :''(


  • Hi Thumper, long time no see. I'd check with the pharmacist, however personally (and I'm not a doctor) I think it's merely a coincidence. Call your doc also and see if you can discuss this with him.

    Hi Thumper,
    I take hydrocodone and do not get those symptoms. I think same as C., but I'm not adoc. either.
    Goodluck Jim
