Hydrocodone Overview

Hydrocodone is a semi-synthetic opioid derived from codeine. Hydrocodone is used orally as a narcotic analgesic and antitussive (cough medicine), often in combination with paracetamol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen.[1] Hydrocodone is prescribed predominantly within the United States; elsewhere it is rare. The International Narcotics Control Board reported 99% of the worldwide supply in 2007 was consumed in the United States.[2] The Administrative Controlled Substances Code Number (ACSCN) for hy...

hydrocodone 10 in henderson nv
where can I find hydrocodone 10 in stock in Henderson, nv ## Unfortunately, there is no listing of pharmacies according to what they do or do not have in stock that I can refer to for you. Such a database would be very dynamic and difficult to keep updated, if there were. Additionally, we are also into the time of year, where shortages regularly occur due to mandatory manufacturing limits on controlled substances. Once a manufacturer reaches their yearly allotted limit, they can't produce any new product, until after the new year. Inevitable, demand exceeds supply and shortages occur for the last few months of the year. 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 constipati...

find pharmacy hydrocodone in henderson nv
having trouble finding hydrocodone 10/325 stocked in Henderson, nv ## Hello, LMJ! How are you? I'm very sorry that you're having a problem finding your medication. We are now into the time of year when a shortage usually occurs with controlled substances, due to mandatory manufacturing limits. Once a manufacturer reaches their yearly allotted limit, they cannot manufacture any new product, until after the new year. 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. The best suggestion I can make is that you ask your pharmacist what they do have in stock and then speak to your doctor about prescribing that, in the meantime. Does anyone else have any suggestions or...

PRESCRIPTION REFILL
I have a prescription for hydrocodone 'take one every 8 hours as needed' qty 60. Got them to take instead of tramadol when I'm in a lot of pain. Last week & 1/2, I've been having major pain and the dr said I could take them every 6 hours til we get worked through this. So, I'm sure I'll run out, as I'm already getting low, before the monthly refill of all my meds. Since this is only a qty of 60, how soon can I get it refilled, as the dr. told me to try that first but if they wouldn't let me, he'd write a new script. ## Since this is a controlled substance, due to the Hydrocodone in it, which is a narcotic, the pharmacy can't legally fill it for you, until it is actually due for a refill. Federal law prohibits them from doing so. They may fill ...

Amneal Pharmaceuticals Hydrocodone 10-325
I have been taking hydrocodone 10-325 (made by Watson) for about a year. I picked up my prescription yesterday and instead of the normal yellow pill, I received a white oblong pill imprinted with m367 on it. I took 2 for breakthrough pain and had no relief what-so-ever. I called the pharmacy and was told that they will no longer be able to get the med from Watson. Does anyone know what has happened? I have chronic pain, and these white ones from Amneal Pharmaceuticals is not going to cut it. Has anyone else experienced this? ## Hello, Dano! How are you? There's no way to know which manufacturer's product your pharmacy will carry at any given time. You might be better served to talk to your doctor about trying a different medication. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the po...

watson 778 pill
Does anyone know what that is? It's big white oblong looking pill. ## Is the marking possibly WATSON 3228? If so, it contains 10mgs of Hydrocodone and 750mgs of Acetaminophen. 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. This dosage is also no longer being manufactured. Can you please double check the imprint and post back? Thanks!

hydrocodone side effect: pin-point pupils
Thank you for this very supportive forum! I hope someone can ease my worried mind. I had wrist surgery ten days ago during which time a titanium plate and screws were attached to the broken bone(s). I was prescribed Hydrocodone/Acetominopen (5/325) for pain, but used only six of the 20 tablets during the past ten days. I've had pin-point pupils since that time --which I hope can be attributed to the Hydrocodone. Is it possible that using six tablets in ten days could cause this side effect? If so, how long can I expect this condition to last? Incidentally, I called my pharmacy today, the surgeon's office, and my primary care doctor --and no one knew that Hydrocodone could cause pin-point pupils. My GP wants me to see him on Monday so he can order neurologic testing! Please help!...

Which Is Stronger Hydrocodone 10 325 Or Oxycodone 5 325
I have been taking Hydrocodone 10/325 for chronic pain, 1 pill every 6 hours. My Dr. just prescribed Oxycodone 5/325 with up to 2 pills every 6 hours. Which is stronger? ## The oxy is stronger but who knows your body may b used 2 the vicoden. But if he is allowing u 2 take 2 @ a time it would b better if he would just give u the percocet 10/325 as it would b as effective with 1/2 the amount of aspirin. Try it out n post your feedback. ## Scott is correct, the Oxycodone is actually stronger than the Hydrocodone. To equal 10mgs of the Hydrocodone, you only need 6.67mgs of the Oxycodone, so I'd advise caution when you first take them, you probably shouldn't take 2 of them, until you try one and see how well it works for you. Are there any questions or comments? ## Thank you for the...

Can hydrocodone 5 500 be the cause longer bleeding time in a dialysis access?
If a dialysis patient is bleeding for 6 hours (after treatment) rather than 2 to 3 hours before his/her blood finally coagulates in the needle insertion sites, could 1 Hydrocodone 5 500 capsule taken before or during treatment be the cause? Thank you for your help. ## Hello, Gidi! How are you? The Acetaminophen that's in it could cause some increased blood thinning, but usually not that much. 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. Are you on any other medications? Did you eat or drink anything else different that day? Is your doctor aware that you're taking this medication?

hydrocodone shortage
Anyone know of a Florida pharmacy that is filling written prescriptions for hydrocodone? Have not been able to fill for almost a month. I live in St. Lucie county. What the neck is going on? ## I'm very sorry about the problem that you're having. This medication was changed to a schedule 2 drug at the beginning of October, which created a delay shipping it to pharmacies due to necessary labeling changes. On top of that, we are into the time of year when there is almost always a shortage of controlled substances, due to mandatory manufacturing limits. Once a manufacturer reaches their limit for the year, they can not manufacture new product, until the new year. Every year that I can remember, demand has exceeded supply and resulted in shortages. This is a narcotic analgesic, so i...
