Hydrocodone Overview

Hydrocodone, also known as dihydrocodeinone, is a semi-synthetic opioid synthesized from codeine, one of the opioid alkaloids found in the opium poppy.[4] It is a narcotic analgesic used orally for relief of moderate to severe pain, but also commonly taken in liquid form as an antitussive/cough suppressant.[5] Hydrocodone is prescribed predominantly within the United States, with the International Narcotics Control Board reporting that 99% of the worldwide supply in 2007 was consumed in the U...

2172 hydrocodone is it a pain pill
4 Replies RSS
I thought I was going nuts until I googled this strange and worthless new pill. Definitely NOT the same and I will be calling my pain management doctor and have something else prescribed if this is how it's gonna be. I wonder if walmart has the "real deal"... gonna give walgreens a talking to too. How dare they try and trick bag the public like this! Chronic pain is nothing to take lightly. ## Hello, Madkatt! How are you? I'm very sorry that this tablet doesn't work for you. However, no one is trying to trick the public. Under the Hatch-Waxman Act of 1984, generics are allowed to differ from the name brand by as much as plus or minus 20%, in the amount of the active ingredients. They also don't have to measure against each other, only against the name brand. This...

Can Hydrocodone Apap 5 500mg Tab Cause Joint Pain
4 Replies RSS
my dr prescribed hydrocodone/apap 5-500mg tab 2 every 6hrs I,ve noticed now my hip joints hurt worse ,throbing & keeping me awake ## Unfortunately, narcotics such as Hydrocodone can cause joint inflammation in some people that take them. I experienced the same problem, when I was taking Morphine. Learn more Vicodin details here. There are other medications you can try that may not cause the same problem. Have you tried anything else, or just this one? ## I have a compressed joint in my back also have cancer in the lower back. I have been taking vicodin for 20 years now all my joints are hurting and for some reason the doctor will not do anything about this I hate taking pills. I just want to live without pain ## When I am off my pain meds for a few weeks,I haven't done any house...

qualitest hydrocodone 10 325
63 Replies RSS
Although many have said one drug is the same as the other I find that Qualitest hydrocodone 10/325 seems to not affect me as far as making me drowsy and extremely tired. It does so help with the pain but it does not make me so I can not function. The other manufacturer Mallincor (spelling not right) their hydrocodone makes me so tired I have to literally go to bed. Strange I think that if two drugs are identical how can they have different effects to you. I prefer to not take any hydrocodone but until I am through this pain I prefer to take the one that does not comatose me. ## While they contain the same active ingredients, there can be fluctuations in the amount of them that are in generic medications, additionally, the inactive ingredients can be entirely different. Thus, the one fro...

Where can I fill a script in Los Angeles for Qualitest Hydrocodone 10-325
8 Replies RSS
Anybody know of pharmacies in the Los Angeles area that carries the Qualitest Hydrocodone 10-325. My pharmacy switched to another brand. As I have tried them all (back surgery) Qualitest works best for me. Thanks. ## Hi Jay here still looking. Qualitest is by far the most effective medication in it's class in my opinion. I live in Long Beach CA, and can't find a pharmacy that carries this brand. Anybody in the LA area have any input as to the availability of this product. Thanks again ## Bristol Pharmacy in Irvine has them. I have had my left arm reattached, right wrist broken last year and a total of 3 broken ankles. And metal in two parts of my body. I am always in pain. I understand and only wish that people and the FDA could work together to hep people in pain. It can be ver...

can i take hydrocodone acetaminophen 5 325 and ibuprofen
1 Reply RSS
I have been taking 3 ibuprofen for jaw pain after having roots extracted for future implants. The dr had prescribed hydrocodone/acetaminophen 5-325, but I don't like the way it makes me feel. I was trying to cut back on pain meds after 4 days, so I took 2 of the ibuprofen instead of 3. It isn't helping, so can I add 1/2 of a hydrocodone pill or would it be better to take a 3rd ibuprofen pill? ## Scottie, If the hydrocodone was causing undesirable side effects taking an additional Ibuprophen would certainly not hurt. You may wish to take it with milk or something to coat your stomach .so long as you don't exceed the daily max.dose of any NSAID you will be fine.Hope you feel better soon,Kenie.

Doctors in Houston, TX That Will Prescribe Hydrocodone
4 Replies RSS
I recently moved to Houston and have no idea where to look for a doctor, especially one who will write a prescription for pain medication without making you feel like a drug head. Just like many many other people I have sciatica & a degenerative disc in my back. I can usually tolerate the occasional flair ups with just Motrin but the pain that usually lasts for a day or so has been constant for over a week and Motrin and Tylenol around the clock have not helped at all. Please any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. ## Hi , I myself am new here and found a great doctor at houston pain centers in Sugar Land Texas. By great I mean, he listens, reviewed my records, visited with my previous Dr. Was very thorough and agreed to continue my pain management. ## Texas pain solutions on ...

Price Increase 600%
6 Replies RSS
Why did Hydrocodone/Acet 10/375 increase 600% since last year? I have been taking the medication for over 13 years after a 6 doctor team labored for months com up with something that would relieve my lifelong pain from a 2-story fall. I have been paying $6.00 /mo for 270 tablets, until this year. I went to pick up my refill an it was $35. Insurance moved it from Tier 2 to Tier 3 with no explanation. Does anyone know how to find out why this happened, did Exxon.Mobil buy the company? ## Hi Doug, Perhaps it's simply supply and demand, lately it seems as though there has been a steady increase in patients needing narcotic pain medication such as Vicodin. Have you compared prices with any other pharmacies in your area? ## My god, at either of those prices I'd be jumping up and down ...

Did someone replace my SON'S the cough syrup with water
4 Replies RSS
My son had a broken leg and was prescribed hydrocodone 7.5 liquid. I had a vistor come over and use the bathroom where the medicine is. Due to her reputation, I checked after she left. I had tasted it before because my son complained about the taste. I tasted it just now and I'm pretty sure it's watered down based on my memory. I'd like to be 100% sure before confronting her. I do know that it's clear as water now. Please help advise. ## Well that's going to be a difficult one to proof I'd suggest in the future all narcotic containing rxs be safeguarded especially if someone with a substance abuse issue is around. What would have caused you to suspect the medication was tampered with? Taste is subjective. If his dose is lacking the analgesia that it provided befo...
