hydrocodone bitartrate w apap 5 mg 325
Can I take this medication for a headache ## Hello, Sam! How are you? It is a narcotic analgesic, Hydrocodone with Acetaminophen, so while it may help with headaches, it shouldn't be taken, unless your doctor has prescribed it for you. 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 there anything else I can help with?

I have been a labor worker for 20 yrs and now I work in an office with great insurance and benefits. I have an referral appointment at a pain management facility. Nothing over the counter works for me and have tried narcos, hydrocodone, oxcicodone, roxicodone is all that worked for me. Any advice on how to get one if these prescribed? ## Hello, Mickey! How are you? I am very sorry that you're in pain. Your really just need to see your PM specialist and be honest with them about your pain levels.

Hydrocodone Acetaminophen Norco 10 325 Mg
I'm recovering from my third back surgery. I can take hydroco/acetamin 10-325 mg tab with no stomach problems. However, when I take hydroco/acetamin 7.5-325mg tab Mallinc generic, I have severe stomach pains. The pharmacist says there is no difference except the 10 vs the 7.5. It it NOT in my mind, it's in my stomach & it really hurts. Can you clear this up for me? I will be very grateful for your attention. Thank you. ## Who manufactures the 10/325 tablet that you've taken? There can be differences in the inactive ingredients from one manufacturer to another and that can cause problems for some people that are sensitive. So, say for example that the 10/325 was manufactured by Watson Pharmaceuticals, the inactive ingredients could be completely different from those that ...

watson m367
will M367 help me sleep ## Hello, Fernando! How are you? This tablet contains 10mgs of Hydrocodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen, so it is a narcotic analgesic, not a medication intended to induce sleep. It may cause some drowsiness as a side effect, along with nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and constipation. It also carries the risk of being habit forming. Is there anything else I can help with?

find physician willing to prescribe Hydrocodone in montgomery alabama area
I posted earlier my difficulty in finding a physician that will write Lortab/Norco and that especially since I do not have insurance I can not afford to pay $100 just to be told they wont write any narcotic.I have all necessary documentation for my legitimate need for medication, I used to take 120 30 mg roxicette monthly so i am definitely not trying to obtain a ridiculous amount of meds, just need some relief, I cant afford to miss work because I'm hurting too much to get out of bed nor do I want to buy them off the street which we all know is possible. I just want to be written a realistic amount of medication by a physician that actually cares about his patient and not forcing me to take painful IV's so they can charge more. (I've already had one Dr. hit my sciatic nerve...

switching from hydrocodone to morphine
My wife is a chronic pain patient. Today she went to have her periodic office visit with her pain management physician. She has, for several years, been prescribed fentanyl transdermal patches, 75 mcg/hour, along with hydrocodone/apap 10/325, 1 or 2 tablets every 8 hours, PRN for breakthrough pain. She changes the patches every 72 hours. Today the Dr changed her treatment regimine changing the fentanyl to 100 mcg/hrs, changing patch every 48 hours. He took her off the hydrocodone/apap, and said if she still has breakthrough pain, that he will prescribe immediate release morphine to replace the hydrocodone/apap. Her Dr says that this is in response to new laws or guidelines from the DEA and FDA. Is this true? He said that they can't prescribe hydrocodone/apap for chronic pain any lon...

This is hydrocodone 5/50. they r old school ## I am sorry, but that is not correct.

This specific one contains 500mgs of Acetaminophen and is nothing more than a generic or store brand of Extra Strength Tylenol. Is there anything else I can help with?
