Hydrocodone/Apap 7.5-300 vs 7.5-325
1 Reply RSS
Is it unusual for a pharmacy not to carry the 300mg version of Acetaminophen + Hydrocodone? My Dr. that usually writes a script does it for Acetaminophen 325mg + Hydrocodone 7.5mg and this script is for the 300mg version. ## No given pharmacy is under any obligation to carry any given medication in any specific dosage. Is it possible that your doctor meant to write for 325, rather than 300, with the 7.5? Have you tried contacting them to ask? The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth.

Taking hydrocodon acetaminophen 5-325 once a day and 2 extra
1 Reply RSS
Taking 2 extra strength Tylenol 3 times a day and 1 hydrocodon acetaminophen a day. Become extremely dry mouth at night so I keep water by my bed side. Also skin looks like I have a sun tan and now my muscle in right arm hurts a little. Also woke up with swelling around my knee particularly on the back left hand side ## Dry mouth can be a normal side effect of all narcotic opiates, according to FDA reports. Other side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, and constipation. As to the other issues you are experiencing, it is hard to way what has caused them. But the skin color change is a concern, since that could be a symptom of jaundice, which might be due to liver damage from the Acetaminophen in these medications. Have they both been prescribed for you? Has there b...

Any OTC substitute for Hydrocodone/APAP?
29 Replies RSS
Hello! I was prescribed Hydrocodone/APAP 5-325 MG. (It also says on bottle: generic form NORCO 5-325). The only medication that's worked for my condition. Is there any OTC substitute or anything they'll more likely prescribe me? Everyone thinks I have an addiction. I only had a quantity of 12. I'm not having withdrawals. I could go a few days without my medication too. It just really helps. I haven't been able to work due to my condition and I need an income. But they won't give me a refill. My condition: I was given this because the past year I've been dealing with mysterious, unknown painful urination. I've seen specialists, had a ct scan done, been on multiple pills for UTI, urine culture. Nothing they can figure out. It comes up as an infection though. It...

should the strengh of norco be given to a 16 yr old based on weight
2 Replies RSS
My 16 year old had a bad infection which need to be lanced. He was prescribed a high mg dose of Norco. When I questioned the high dose and the fact he has never taken class I or II meds I was told his size was the reason for such a high does. 6 hours later I was in the ER. He told me he was confused and wanted to know where he was. He blacked 2 hours. We were at a wedding. ## HI, Renee! Sorry about what happened to your son. What was the dosage of the Norco? It's really hard to say much about this situation, without knowing the specific details of it. Hydrocodone with Acetaminophen is only available in a maximum of 10mgs Hydrocodone and 750mgs of the Acetaminophen and once a child is past 12, unless they are very tiny or have other significant medical issues, it is normal to start d...

I just started taking acetaminophen + hydrocodone 7.5/500 and still have pain (tooth). Can I take Ibuprofen at the same time. ## yes you can, little secert you can hold a mouthful of listerine or alcohol on tooth an as long as its there it will relieve pain not unless its abcessed, don t swallow either as alcohol an apap don t mix ## Does hydrocodone-acetaminophen curve your appetitve? Does it cause itching in the following areas? sole of the feet and palms of the hands? ## I have the same issues of itching but notice it only when I take Baclofin (muscle relaxer) with it. But I have no hives or marks from itching. Just an all over itch for no reason. Is tis like a small allergic reaction of the two medicines combined? And is that normal. Been taking these for many years now. ## if you h...

Hydrocodone and 500mg Tylenol
2 Replies RSS
I took a 7.5 Watson 3203 and a 500mg Tylenol. Will I be okay? Took for tooth pain. I have an abscess tooth. ## Hello, Lisa! How are you? Did you experience any adverse effects? While doing so just once isn't likely to cause severe issues, it is always best to consult your doctor to be sure. The Hydrocodone tablet you took contains 325mgs of Acetaminophen, so it is never a good idea to add more Acetaminophen (Tylenol) to the mix. Taking too much in any 8 hour period risks causing liver damage or liver failure. Have you consulted your dentist for assistance? ## You can verify this information through the FDA and NIH, they recommend no more than 1,000mgs per 8 hours, and no more than 3,000mgs per 24 hour period. Are you on any other medications?

hydrocodone acetaminophen 5 325 vs 10 325
4 Replies RSS
My Dr changed me from 10-325 to 5-325 because I broke the pill on half. The 10's were barely working. He said they did not appear in my metabolites. I called him out on this bc he must have lied. I never missed any dosages. I think he was wrong. ## Hello, Georgette! How are you? I'm sorry that you're in pain. If you were only taking half of the prescribed dosage, then the amount might have been lower than it should have been and, in some cases, that's treated the same as it not being detected, at all. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is he still prescribing the lower dose for you? ## Well, I was on hydrocodone 10/325. I have chronic neck...

Pain medicine-new formula
2 Replies RSS
I was recently prescribed Hydrocodone with Tylenol. It is a new formula per the pharmacist (5-325). I have had this drug in the past and found that it worked well. This new formula isn't helping my pain. Can you tell me why? I know I had Lortab before. Is this the same drug? Thanks ## Hello, Kathleen! How are you? This isn't a new formula, nor a new dosage. There are several on the market that contain Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone, including Lortab, Norco, Vicodin and others. As to why it's not helping, it just might not be the right dosage or the right medication for you. Just because it has worked in the past, doesn't always mean it will work again, since our bodies do change with time. Learn more Vicodin details here. Have you contacted your doctor about it? ## That...
