hydrocodone acetaminophen 5 325 vs 10 325
2 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...

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...

Oxycodone Itching
3 Replies RSS
I used to take half an Oxycodone 5/500 as needed for cervical for neck pain and it worked fine. Last night I took a whole dose for the first time because of sever stomach pain from vomiting all day. I may have eaten something bad the day before but there was nothing more in my stomach and the pain kept me awake (but I was exhausted from the ordeal). My refill is Endocet 5-325. I guess I had an allergic reaction because my feet started burning in the middle of the night and I was going insane. I iced them in a pan of cold water and ice for as long as I could (30 seconds in/30 seconds out) until I finally felt numb and fell asleep. Woke up late afternoon to the burning itch in my feet - worse than before - and burning, itching palms as well. It was too late to go to my doctor or urgent ca...

drug expiration
7 Replies RSS
Is it dangerous to take generic Vicodin ES after it has expired? I have an old prescription and was just wondering what might happen. Does it lose its effect, or become toxic? ## Never take expired prescriptions. There is a reason that there IS an Expiration Date on them. Not only do they LOSE all potency to help the issue, but the expired pills will surely affect your liver in a toxic way. This is serious. ## Thank you Dr Bronner for the clarification. This is a subject which has been widely debated because some say that certain drugs are okay to take after expiration, whereas others such as antibiotics become toxic. I agree with you that it's better to avoid the expired drugs and stay on the safe side. ## I am engaged to a lovely woman of whom she is part of a family that believes...

Pain medicine-new formula
1 Reply 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?

should the strengh of norco be given to a 16 yr old based on weight
1 Reply 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...

Is Hydrovcodone 5/acetaminaphin good?
3 Replies RSS
would hydrocodone 5/aceaminophen 500 mg tabs be good for a tension headache? If the bottle is sealed and the expiration date was April 8, 2008 would it probably still be a good pain reliever for a headache? ## Hi Ann, When it comes to drugs and medication I believe it is best to not take any chances with the past expiration date. They may still be ok to take given the sealed bottle, however I am not a pharmacist or MD, so I cannot say if it is safe for you to consume. I would recommend contacting your local pharmacy or doctor to assess if the quality of the drug still remains. If you have any more questions or comments to add, then please post back so I can further assist you. ## As stupid as it sounds I take in some caffeine and a big shot of pickle juice. The pickle juice really works...

I'm in withdrawal. how long does it take? ## There is no certain answer to this, it depends on how long you have been taking it and how much you have been taking. It can vary from several days to as much as 2 weeks. ## i would like to know how long withdrawl takes from roxicodone ## just deal with it. I have had to withdrawl from just about everything and they are not hard to deal with. Drink plenty of water, make sure you eat- even if you puke, deal with the pain and there will be pain! ## Hi, im a 37 yr old male and have been addicted to lortab 10 (Watson blue) for almost three years..

What should I so?
7 Replies RSS
Hello I'm currently taking Hydrocodone APAP 10/500mg! I was prescribed 60tabs but after taking at least 10 of them I have not be releaved of pain nor does this medicine have an affect on me... What should I do? ## I meant relieved of pain And what should I do? ## Did you take 10 at once or separately? Because you should be informed that taking a lot at once can be very dangerous due to the Acetaminophen in this. It is toxic if taken in amounts exceeding 4,000mgs a day and 10 of these tablets would have been 5,000mgs. As to what you should do, the 10mg of Hydrocodone, a narcotic pain reliever, is the strongest that this is available in, so if it is not helping your pain, then you need to contact your doctor and discuss the issue with them. Have you called them, yet? ## my dr change...
