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...

Taking Hydrocodone for Depression
436 Replies RSS
I am wondering if anybody else out there has taken Hydrocodone and noticed that symptoms of depression are alleviated? I find that many of today's anti-anxiety and antidepressant drugs come with unpleasant side effects, whereas while taking Hydrocodone they aren't there. The caveat to all of this is that yes, I know that Hydrocodone and opiates in general can be addictive. So long term use would result in withdrawal symptoms. I'm just wondering who else might agree with me on this? ## I have taken dozens of antidepressants as well as been prescribed antipsycotics and other meds for off-label usage, and nothing has worked effectively over the past 15 years. I will take hydrocodone for a chronic pain condition, and, YES, oh my goodness, YES, it seems to make me immune to a dep...

which is stronger hydrocodone or oxycodone 10 325
16 Replies RSS
This is to answer the question is there a higher dose form of norco the answer is yes it's called Zohydro it was made here in San Diego and has been approved by the Fda and Sea but it might be hard to find and the insurance company might not cover it, it's and extended version kinda like oxycontin for oxycodone and it comes in different doses. Fact not fiction. ## Just to clarify, Zohydro only contains Hydrocodone, in a time released formulation. It does not contain Acetaminophen, like Norco does. 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 there any questions or concerns? ## verwon you are just right as for the side effects but it comes in dosage as l...

i need to find a doctor in fort worth texas that prescribes pain killers like hydrocodones
160 Replies RSS
Does anyone know a doctor that is good about prescribing pain killers like hydrocodens 10/325 in fort worth Texas? I am a diabetic type 1 that has a lot of pain and really in need of a good doctor that can help me out and not think i am faking pain. ## Due to the new laws that have recently been put in place, you will most likely be better off seeing a pain management specialist and there isn't a very good chance of getting this particular medication anymore. The FDA and DEA are cracking down and aren't letting general practitioners or surgeons treat chronic pain that requires long-term regular treatments. They will only be allowed to prescribe such medications for a short period of time, such as for a few weeks immediately after someone has had surgery or been injured. Learn mo...

caraco hydrocodone 176

Is it like the yellow pill with the cursive V on it (10/325)? That's what I use to get but today I got this. What's the difference? ## They have just been manufactured by different companies, which is common with generics. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. How are you doing taking them? Have you experienced anything unusual?

Hydrocodone still making me sick
1 Reply RSS
My Dr prescribed hydrocodone a month ago. I took one pill and immediately got extremely dizzy and nauseous. I did not take any more of them but am still dizzy and nauseous if I move too much or too fast. Even reading or watching tv and having things move is making me sick. I would like to know if this is normal or OK to still be dealing with this and what if anything could help? ## No, it is not normal to continue experiencing such side effects, if you have not continued taking it. The FDA lists the typical side effects as being transient and they generally go away a week, or so after you stop taking it. If you are still experiencing such issues, you need to have these issues checked out as it may be due to some other cause. What was this medication prescribed to treat? Are you on any o...

How Often can One Take Hydrocodone 10/325mg Tabs?
54 Replies RSS
I have severe chronic back pain. A neurosurgeon prescribed Hydrocodone 10/325mgs tablets to be taken every 8 hours. I am finding that my pain diminishes 1 to 1/2 hour after taking one tablet. Can I take 1 tablet more often, i.e., every four hours? ## Have you consulted your doctor, or the neurosurgeon? Hydrocodone with Acetaminophen, the active ingredients in Vicodin, is a narcotic opiate pain medication, so while there are times it is appropriate to take it more often, sometimes as often as every 6 hours, you should not do so, without checking with your physician. Learn more about Vicodin Details ## I agree with Verwon. Talk to your doctor. You should not increase your medication dosage without his express consent. If you find the Hydrocodone 10/325mgs isn't controlling your pain a...

Picture of hydrocodone 176
3 Replies RSS
Heard rumors that this pill does not work as well as other brands. ## Hello, John! How are you? The tablet with the 176 marking is manufactured by Caraco Pharmaceuticals and by their image and description, it should be white, oblong, scored on one side with the 176 pressed into the opposite side and 13.00mm in size. (See NDC 57664-176) They list it as containing 10mgs of Hydrocodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen. The FDA classifies this medication as 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? ## Has anyone taken. Sun 10/325 hydrocodone. Do they work well? They are white oblong and have 176 on one side, scored on the other side. ## Fo...

2172 Hydrocodone Acetaminophen-Actavis/Walgreens Complaint
5 Replies RSS
I too had my RX medication refilled (again) at Walgreens, but this time (When I did not take my RX Tylenol with it, like I always do) I noticed, that I have been given a different Brand of medication (A Generic Brand/MFG by-ACTAVIS). My "Norco-Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen 5-325/TB" did not work as prescribed or even when I took 3 pills at one time (because 1 nor 2 pills didn't work/relieve my pain). I believe I have been given FAKE NORCO/Hydrocodone pills (white/#2172 on them) from Walgreens Pharmacy. Today I contacted the DEA & FDA via email and requested that they investigate my complaint as soon as possible. ## Hi Lisa, Sorry to hear about your experience with these new 2172 hydrocodone/acetaminophen tabs. There are actually several discussion threads here on MedsChat co...

Asking my doctor for more pain medication
1 Reply RSS
I've been taking 10-325 hydrocodone/acetaminophen for 3yrs now, 3 times per day and I am still experiencing back pain! Can I ask my dr. for more pills per day? ## I think the best way to approach this is to just tell them that your pain is not under control, then let them make the decision from there, that way you avoid looking like a drug seeker. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as constipation, dry mouth, headache, dizziness, and drowsiness. They may even suggest you try a stronger medication. Are you on any other medications?
