Not a common symptom of opiate abuse
by: Debbie Wicker

Dear Anne,

A puffy face is not a common symptom of Hydrocodone abuse. Puffy faces can be caused by a drug reaction and if your ex is buying drugs on the street for his addiction it could be that the drugs contain something that his body is reacting to.

Whenever you buy drugs on the street you have no idea what you are really getting. Drug dealers OFTEN cut drugs with other things so that they make more money from each sale.

I recommend that you confront your ex and tell him that his face is puffy and you recommend he go to a doctor to have it checked out ASAP!

Good Luck,

Debbie

Although swelling is not a common side effect of hydrocodone abuse, it can be an effect of high dosages. It could actually be caused by respiratory ability during the night, liver and kidney damage due to the Tylenol or other serious medical; issues.
