Hydrocodone Overview

Hydrocodone is a semi-synthetic opioid derived from codeine. Hydrocodone is used orally as an 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 hydrocodon...

Price Increase 600%
5 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 ...

White Oblong Scored Pill With V On One Side And 3595 on the other side? My Rx bottle says it is hydrocodone 7.5/500. Is that what it is?
3 Replies RSS
My Rx bottle says Hydrocodone 7.5/500. The pill is a white oblong scored pill with V on one side and 35 95 on the other side. Is that the correct medication that my bottle indicates? ## That is the correct medication, but not the correct dosage on the Acetaminophen, this tablet actually contains 650mgs of it, rather than the 500mgs that you say it has on your bottle, however, the dosage of the Hydrocodone is correct at 7.5mgs. This is a narcotic pain reliever, the generic for Vicodin. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and dry mouth. Read more: Are there any comments or questions? ## Qualitest Hydrocodone bitartrate 7.5mg combined with paracetamol 650mg is the result I came up with. That 650mg is quite irresponsible, 750mg per tablet would be almost criminal....

Found.. White pill imprint Watson 540.. 10 Mg...? Usually they are blue:10mg/500 hydrocodone/acephatamine Different color same imprint? Same thing or not? Usually they have different imprints or why change color..? ## It's interesting you mentioned that because "most" of the images I found have been oval blue pills. I did however come across a legitimate photo of the one you're describing (elliptical, white, imprinted with WATSON 540) at: rxlist.com/vicodin-hp-drug/patient-images-side-effects.htm NOTE: the dosage of the white pill is confirmed to be the same as the blue pill (500mgs of Acetaminophen + 10mgs of Hydrocodone). Manufacturer: Watson Laboratories, Inc. Although the way a pill looks is entirely up to the whit and whim of the company making it, it would definite...

Fake 10mg hydrocodone Compare pictures
3 Replies RSS
"Here" is the link to a picture of mine (left hand side) and the same one I found online next to it. The one I have is on the left. The one on the right is a picture I got off of the web. Every single picture I could find online looked the same shade of yellow and had the same font as the one in the left. Besides the different appearance I can tell a difference after taking the yellow V(on one side) 3601(on other) versus taking the white "Watson 853"(all on one side) which I have both of at the moment. I posted on photobucket the one I have and one from the web side to side. When you compare them mine is a slightly darker shade of yellow. It is also very lightly speckled with dark spots. The spots on them almost look like they got there from being in someone's pocket...

Hydrycodone syrup

How many teaspoons of hydrocodone acetaminophen syrup 7.5 325mg dose it take to equal one 7.5 325mg pill need to know how many pills don't understand the rest Thank u ## Hello, Jake! How are you? Unless the label specifies otherwise, that would 7.5mgs of Hydrocodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen per teaspoon (5mls) which is equal to one tablet. The FDA classifies this medication as being 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?
