get refill for controlled drug while traveling
1 Reply RSS
I will be traveling from VA to CA Washinton state hoping to tour states we have not seen yet. I take hydrocodone and Valium for disc problems and muscle spasms. I always use Walmart pharmacy. Will I be able to get my prescriptions if I take one with me from my doctor? Which walmarts would be able to fill them ## As long as you have valid written prescriptions, there should not be any problem getting them filled, as long as they can verify it with your doctor. Thus, I would suggest stopping in a couple days before you actually need a refill, that will give them time to verify it with your doctor and etc. The FDA warns that these medications carry the risk of being habit forming and they may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. I live in Wa...

after taking hydrocodone when will it show in a urine test?
34 Replies RSS
I took a hydrocodone at 8:40a.m. and that same morning had a urine drug test at 11:20 will it be detected? ## i dont take hydrocodone and i took a half of a 10mg and had to do a drug test 2 days after will is show up??? ## Kayla, the normal time it takes to be detected in a urine test is about 3 hours, so it's hard to say. You were pretty close to that and it's always going to vary from person to person. Johnny, they can be detectable for approximately 4 to 5 days, after taking them, but as stated above, it can vary from person to person depending on your individual metabolism, overall health, activity levels and many other factors. Are there any other questions or comments? ## I am in pain managment and two weeks ago I hurt myself agian and like a dumb butt I did'nt know I ...

hydrocodone and tramadol difference
6 Replies RSS
I have been taking Hydrocodone 10-325 for 5 really shattered disc's, in which 5 of the top Neuro-surgens in PA stated that I would be a dead man, if they operate. I live in constant pain and the Hydrocodone helps a little. Now a VA Doctor prescribed Tramadol 50mg tabs. This Doctor is not my Primary care Doctor, just a fill-in. Correct me if I'M wrong, but this seems to me that this will in no way take away my pain, and furthermore, it seems like pain management. What are the answers, and What can I do???? ## If you get relief from Tramadol I would stay on that. If you have a condition with chronic pain all the time you would need more than Norco. You would need Oxycontin and since you would most likely be on it for life you don't want to take tylenol every day. Chances are y...

taking hydrocodone neuropathy
2 Replies RSS
Hello, I take hydrocodone 5/325 for L3,4,5, disc pain and CIPN. It is not doing well for me. I was bumped up from 600mg of Neurontin to 800mg 2 months ago. All of March I was in constant pain, in the balls of my feet especially. I am wondering if the Hydrocodone needs to be increased since the neurontin/hydrcodone doses together aren't working. I will not see pain management doc again til May, any advice is very appreciated. Thanx :) ## Can you call them to explain the issue and see if you can get a sooner appointment? It's hard to say which one might need to be increased, or changed. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, constipation, mood swings, and weight changes. Are you on any other medications? ## Hey Verwon, ...

How Long Does Hydrocodone Stay In Your System For A Urine Test
550 Replies RSS
I took only one 7.5 lortab and was drug tested. Will it show up in my urine? If so, for how long? ## It really depends a lot on what time you took the 7.5 Lortab and afterwards, the length of time you had before your drug test. Lortab has a half-life of roughly 3.8 hours. This means that 3.8 hours after the dose you took, half of the original dose is still present and active in the body. After another 3.8 hours (or 7.6 hours total), half of what was left after the first 3.8 hours is present and active (one-quarter of the original dose). Most pharmacists consider that after three to five "half-lives," close to 90% of the drug has been eliminated and is no longer affecting the body. The maximum wait to achieve five half-lives for Lortab would be: 5 x 3.8 = "19 hours". But ...

i had back surgery last year and i go to pain management. they prescribe me lortab 7.5 and neurontin which i take everyday. i go in once a month and have to take a urine test to prove that i am taking my meds. for the first few months i tested positive for hydrocodone. not anymore. i still take it just like i am supposed to but it doesnt show up in the test. my doctor says the only reason it would not show up is if i wasnt taking it. but i take it everyday. has this ever happened to anyone else? or does anyone know what would cause me to test negative? ## Are you being more active than usual? Have you increased your fluid intake? Have you added any new supplements? Changed your diet? Lost or gained weight? All of those and some others I didn't mention, could have an effect on whethe...

832 93 how can you tell if you are taking a placebo of the medication you used to take
37 Replies RSS
My doctor and I had discussed my quitting taking Clonopin 0.5 mg. as I have taken for so long, so he told me he would submit a placebo at some time without telling me. Got my RX filled and keep sweating and getting headaches. Could this be from the placebo as the pill looks and has the same imprint as the original one I was taking. How can you tell? ## What kind of doctor would do that to you? That's crazy. You should be tapered off any medication like that. I would find a new doctor. ## If it has the same marking, then it is the same medication. Your doctor cannot manufacture and them have a pharmacy give you a fake pill, especially with the marking that is registered with the FDA as containing that medication. Doing such would be illegal. And the other poster is correct, this type...

Hey i got these pills today from walgreens and i have took 3 so far and still no effect still in pain. Has anyone else had this same problem because idk of they took most of the hydro out of these new pills but its definitely something wrong. I will not be getting these from my Dr again ## The 5/325 are worthless, have your doctor prescribe the A333 10/325. I have taken three per day (every 8 hours) for the past twelve years because of a failed Lammy. They at times don't get rid of all the pain but its bearable. ## I just got the same pills from Walgreen and also want to know ## I also just got these today and they are not releiving my pain. I'm calling Walgreens now to speak to a Pharmacist. ACTAVIS is the Mfg. This is what the Local stores are being shipped. ## I also just got...

hydrocodone & morphine
1 Reply RSS
Hello, I know someone who is prescribed Hydrocodone-- 10mg-325 acetaminophen mg and Morphine-15mg. This person said on a "good day" they take 60mg of hydrocodone which would be 1950 mg acetaminophen as well as the 30 mg of morphine a day- again on a good day. I do not know much about all of this- so my question is- how dangerous is this? Thanks for all your help! ## It being dangerous, or not, depends on the person and their tolerance to opiates. If they have been taking them for awhile and their doctor has prescribed them this way, things are most likely fine. The biggest issue with the medications and amounts you've mentioned would actually be due to the Acetaminophen. The FDA warns that you should not exceed 1,000mgs of it per any 8 hour time period, and no more than 3,00...

white oval pill M 625
2 Replies RSS
I have a pill and I can't find out what it is online. I'm pretty sure it's hydrocodone 10mg. It's shaped like a football, has M-625 on it and nothing on the back. Thank you....oh, and it's white. ## From what I can find this tablet is manufactured by Magna and they list it as being Stahist AD, which is used to treat cold symptoms. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, nervousness, dry mouth, and insomnia. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you very much,your reply helped me very much

hydrocodone alcohol
1 Reply RSS
It might seem little but I broke my hand and was prescribed 5mg Norco (Hydrocodone). I took a total of 15mg Hydrocodone today and not thinking a few hours poured a glass of wine and had two big sips before remembering the warning label. Will I be okay? ## How are you feeling? Did you experience any adverse effects? The typical main issue with taking such a medication is that increased risk of severe side effects, which may include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. However, it is always best to follow your doctor's or pharmacist's instructions.

Differences in different hydrocodone pill numbers
1 Reply RSS
I have been on hydrocodone 10/325 for a while the pill # M367 Thursday got a new prescription I received Hydrocodone pill # G036 I knew when I took the first pill there was a difference I was dizzy,nauseous, and had severe diarrhea went to pharmacy where they said it's the same medicine I've been taking I don't know anyone else have or had this problem??? ## Those can be normal side effects of this medication, the FDA also warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming, other side effects may include vomiting, headache, and dry mouth. Has anything changed? The tablet with the marking G 036 actually is listed by the manufacturer, Tris Pharma, as containing only 7.5mgs of Hydrocodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen. Thus, it is a lower dosage, so you could also be experienc...

I have large, bright yellow pills with no markings. They are from outside the U.S. and are supposed to be hydrocodone bitartrate by mallinckrodt with a National Drug Code of 0406-0367. If generic, are these as they are supposed to be?

Mallinckrodt cheap hydrocodone returns!
Post a Reply
I'm sure they're more than a few of you out there that might be returning to look into basically the same problems with Mallinckrodt Pharm"s Hydrocodone/APAP 7.5/325, commonly referred to as Norco. About 4 years ago, Mallinckrodt dumped a bunch of this product on the US market. I have been taking Norco for about 12 years & have always been at about the same dose and never had any problems until I ran into this brand. I've had Actavis, Watson, & Qualtest brands with relatively no noticeable difference. Then four years ago, I filled my usual prescription and came home to find a different shaped tablet with M366 on the side. Almost immediately after my first dose, first came the stomach ache, then the headache, and eventually the feeling of withdrawal. I went to the...

is hydrocodone bitartrate in the gas that dentists use
Post a Reply
Would the gas the dentist gives you to calm down show up in a urine test as hydrocodone? I tested positive for hydrocodone in a urine test and don't take this, but I do take percocet and have a fentanyl patch.

Hydrocodone strength
23 Replies RSS
What is stronger of the two 10/325 or 7.5/750 Hydrocodone ## 10/325 stronger more hydrocodone with 10 mg per pill and only 325ancetametaphen were as the 7.5mg 750 is only 7.5 mg of hydrocodne the hydrocodone is the prescription the 750 and 325 is just the over the count tylonal I awful at spelling. Spell check makes you dumb but I hope this helps ## That is mostly correct, however, you cannot buy Acetaminophen over the counter in higher than 500mgs, which would be Extra Strength Tylenol. But the smaller numbers do refer to the Hydrocodone, which is a narcotic pain reliever, so the higher the number, the higher the dosage and the stronger the medication. The maximum you can get of it in the US is 10mgs. The common name brands for this are Lortab and Vicodin. Common side effects may inclu...

hydrocodone 5 325 to acetaminophen
6 Replies RSS
My daughter has been taking hydrocodone 5/325 every 4 hrs since Thurs afternoon. 24 hrs ago, her dr moved it to every 6 hrs, and she took her last one at 615pm last night (it's now 1250a). Can you switch to extra strength, OTC acetaminophen now (500mg tabs)? Or should we wait longer after her last hydrocodone dose? Please advise. Thank you! ## You can take up to 3000mg of acetaminophen in a 24hr period. Anymore than that should be under a doctor's care/advice. ## According to the FDA, their 'liver warning' goes by a maximum daily dosage of 4,000 mg within a 24-hour period. This is not to say that you shouldn't consult with your doctor first, but it should allow for substantial flexibility in your dosing. If you're currently taking 1300mgs a day (325mgs four times...

2172 Hydrocodone Acetaminophen-Actavis/Walgreens Complaint
3 Replies RSS
I too had my RX medication refilled (again) at Walgreens, but this time (When I did not take my RX Tylenol with it, like I always do) I noticed, that I have been given a different Brand of medication (A Generic Brand/MFG by-ACTAVIS). My "Norco-Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen 5-325/TB" did not work as prescribed or even when I took 3 pills at one time (because 1 nor 2 pills didn't work/relieve my pain). I believe I have been given FAKE NORCO/Hydrocodone pills (white/#2172 on them) from Walgreens Pharmacy. Today I contacted the DEA & FDA via email and requested that they investigate my complaint as soon as possible. ## Hi Lisa, Sorry to hear about your experience with these new 2172 hydrocodone/acetaminophen tabs. There are actually several discussion threads here on MedsChat co...

Hydrocodone acetaminophen 7.5 -- 325 after stitches
1 Reply RSS
We are on vacation in Australia. My daughter cut her finger badly and received stitches at a local 24 hour clinic. No pain meds were prescribed for her. She is having tremendous pain; I have given her paracetamol according to the instructions today, but it's not enough. I have some hydrocodone acetaminophen 7.5 - 325 for knee pain I have. Any recommendation about giving her one of my pills to help her sleep tonight, or maybe even half a pill? I have emailed the clinic for directions but they will take 24+ hours to get back to me and she'd like to use one tonight. ## It's according to how old your daughter is. If she's an adult one will not hurt her for pain because that's what they prescribe me when they pulled my tooth. They are mild pain meds so 1 every 6-8 hours i...

Dad in severe pain - Hydrocod/APAP 5/325 NOT helping.
5 Replies RSS
My dad (81 yr old, 125 lbs.) is prescibed Hydrocod/APAP 5/325. He's had back surgery several times, he swears the last doctor really screwed it up and no other doctor wants to touch it. He is currently alternating Hydrocod/APAP 5/325 and Tramedol. All along he has said the Tramedol does NOTHING for him. At points over the past year, and especially this past week the pain has gotten truly unbearable. Thursday morning he went in for a cortisone shot in the back. Doctor said he could take 2 Hydrocod/APAP 5/325 at a time if needed. (even though my father says that 1 was doing absolutely nothing anymore, the doctor seems to think he is lying.) It is Sunday now and he has had absolutely no relief. Is there some other medication alternative he should be asking for? I am completely unfamili...
