Hydrocodone Overview

Hydrocodone is a semi-synthetic opioid synthesized from codeine, one of the opioid alkaloids found in the opium poppy. It is a narcotic analgesic used orally as an antitussive/cough suppressant, but also commonly taken orally for relief of moderate to severe pain.[1] 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 United States.[2] The Administrative Controll...

qualitest hydrocodone 10 325
5 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...

I received my med from a new cheaper pharmacy and wanted to know if I got ripped off I was prescribed norco 10/325 and given a generic pill with watson 853 imprinted on it. Does anyone know if there is such a generic?? It is yellow and oblong HELP ## oblong blue green pill with imprint of SCF found in coat pocket ## you were given legitimate medication my norcos look exactly like that ## To be exact, Watson 853 is Hydrocodone 10mgs and Acetaminophen 325mgs, generic for Norco. ## I cannot find a listing for the one marked SCF. Sounds like something over the counter. ## yes it is 10mg.. i have some in my hand right now! ## I know it's used for pain, but it gives you that bared out feeling/ drunken feeling. It's a commonly abused drug. ## NORCO 10/325 IS Watson-made hydrocodone/apa...

i have been taking hydrocodone 10 and my doctor just changed me to acetaminophen cod3 are they the same that is what was told by

I have been taking Hydrocodone10 since March for RSD the doctor changed me this week to Acetaminophen/cod3 The doctor said that the law made it where he can not give the hydrocodone any more . I want to know if they are the same I was told they are the same. I scared to take because I have sleep apna and a real sensitivity to codone. I get breathing problems and rashes. Not sure what to do at this point. can not take most opids drugs. ## Hydrocodone is an opiate. Tylenol #3 has 30 mg Codiene and 325 mg Tylenol. Tylenol # 3 is not as strong as hydrocodone. Your dr can still write rxs for hydrocodone if he is writting you a rx for Tylenol #3. But, a lot of drs are switching their patients from hydrocodone to tylenol #3 because hydrocodone combination meds became a Schedule II med Monday. ...

I was wondering what the dose would be to be equal to the 7.5 hydrocodone pill. ## It is exactly equivalent, the intention of it is to give 7.5mgs of Hydrocodone and 500mgs of Acetaminophen in each dose. Side effects will also be the same and may include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and dry mouth. Are there any comments or questions? ## is the liquid hydrocodone 7.5 500 equal to the pills 7.5? ## is there any where i can get my perscription for liquid loratab filled 500mg ## I am having a problem getting my hubby's Lortab Elixir script filled.

I have two separate prescriptions for the above. One is an oblong tablet, the other is a round, flat tablet. My druggist says the round one is 1/2 the strength of the oblong. Yet both are labeled the same.

Buldging disk in lower back and also broke my L2 vertebrae in 2006 pain is intolerable ## Hello, Tamtam! How are you? Due to the new regulations set forth by the DEA last year, you'll need to see a specialist to have pain medications prescribed. A general practitioner won't prescribe there for you. However, do you currently have a PCP that could refer you to someone? If so, that might be the quickest and easiest way to find the help you need. Can anyone recommend a good doctor in that area? ## I've tried Piedmont Comprehensive Pain Management in Greenville and the dr I'm seeing cut my pain meds in half at my first visit and is threatening to not prescribe "one single pill". Despite saying they would monitor my pain levels closely over time I barely see the dr as ...

I NEED TO KNOW IF I CAN GET THIS MEDICATION FOR A COUGH I HAVE HAD FOE THREE YEARS. I TAKE IT ONLY ONCE A DAY BECAUSE I PAY $182.00 A MONTH. I AM WIDOWED AND 65 YEARS OLD. I CAN NOT AFFORD TO PAY THIS AMOUNT. IF I SIGN FOR IT CAN I GET IT OVER THE COUNTER AND HOW MUCH IS IT.. SINCERELY CAROL ## Hello, Carol! How are you? No, this is not available over the counter. The hyd stands for Hydrocodone, which is a narcotic, so it is only available by prescription. 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. Have you discussed the issue with your doctor? They may be able to prescribe a cheaper alternative. As to the cough, do you know what's causing it? Are you on any ...

hydrocodone expiration date
2 Replies RSS
Does liquid hydrocodone/apap lose its yellow color after two weeks ## Hi Jenni, Based on my research, U.S. prescription medications are required to have a mandatory expiration date of 1 year from the date the prescription is filled. After a year is up, the medication should still be safe but it will start to lose its potency and can no longer be as effective. However, there are some medications that can become dangerous after they expire. That being said, it's best to not take any medication after its expiration date. I haven't heard of this happening, but I'm sure it has to someone besides yourself. Maybe there is a problem with your specific prescription. Have you spoken with your pharmacy about it? I hope you get it figured out! Has this happened to anyone else? ## I woul...
