Q: Does Vicodin cause low or high blood pressure?
A: Vicodin is a pain killer intended for short term use because it has a high potential for abuse and addiction. Adverse cardiovascular reactions have been reported with use of Vicodin. These include slowing of the heart beat, palpitations, hypertension, hypotension, and fainting. (Gold Standard Inc. Drug Information 2007)
