Hydrocodone Overview

Hydrocodone is a semi-synthetic opioid derived from codeine. Hydrocodone is used orally as a narcotic 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 DEA number for hydrocodone is 9193 and the aggregate production...

how much hydrocodone is safe
I take 8 - 30mg Codeine daily, put some days need a bit more. I have some Hydrocodone 5/ace 500. can I add one or two of these, or take additional Codeine ## You can take 60 mg of Codeine every 4 hrs. But, if they contain 500 mg of tylenol instead of 325 mg, you can only take 2 every 6 hrs due to the high amount of tylenol. Hydrocodone is stronger that Codeine, so you may want to take the hydrocodone only instead.

what do a 215 taste like if chewed?
Just got some light blue a 215s but think they may be fake. I formerly took 50 to 60 My's of hydrocodone orally per dose so I took 2 of the 30s orally with NO affect. So the next day I chewed one and it had no taste at all. I know from chewing other dros and ocs that there is normally some type of taste. Any advice appreciated as y'all know how costly these are.

Hydrocodone or norco 10/325 2355v white round
Are there or is it possible that anyone else has received norco 10/325 that say 2355 on one side and have a v on the other. This comes up as fiorcet on pill id but these feel like hydrocodone. Anyone else ? ## Hello, Chaz! How are you? No, it is a generic Fioricet, the effects you're feeling are most likely due to the Butalbital in it, which is a barbiturate, it can cause a high like effect, dizziness and drowsiness. Is there anything else I can help with? ## So there is no"Hydrocodone" what so ever in this pill? I've been reading about this for hours. And some post say yes and some post like yours for example say no... This is a new precription my doctor gave me. The think is I can NOT have anything whatsoever with "Hydrocodone" in it and I'm only concerned ...

which is stronger hydrocodone or oxycodone 10 325
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...

5mg 300mg versus 5mg 325mg of hydrocodone acetaminophen
5/300 is 1/3 the price of 5/325 of hydrocodone acetaminophen at the pharmacy. Does the pain relief compare and is it worth the difference in price? We are talking $13 versus $38 for 25 mg difference. ## It's possible they have already raised the price with hydrocodone combinations meds becoming a Schedule II meds Oct 6, 2014. Everything from manufacturing to dispensing had to have tighter security and the cost has to be passed on to the customer. ## Hello, Debra! How are you? It really depends on how well it works for you. If you don't take this all the time, then you'll likely get adequate relief from the 5/300, though I don't show a listing for that dosage being available, so it would be best to double check with your pharmacy. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has t...

liquid hydrocodone-Acetamin
I have bottle of liquid hydrocodon-Acetamin 7.5-325/15 & the QTY:150 how many ML EQUALS TO ONE TABLET ## Hello, Mob! How are you? 15, that's what the 7.5-325/15 means on the label, that's the dosage you get in 15mls, 7.5mgs of Hydrocodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen. 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? ## 5 mls is 1 teaspoon. 1 teaspoon of this med is 7.5 mg Hydrocodone/325 Acetaminophen. ## if 5 mls is 1 teaspoon, than the 15 would refer to 3 teaspoons equaling the actual dosage of 7.5-325. Am I right or am I right? ## I think Im right, 5mls, 1 teaspoon equals 7.5 mg Hydrocodone/325 Acetaminophen. 3 teas...

HydrocodoneAPAP 10325
A light yellow oblong shaped tablet imprinted with 36 01 on the front and V on th back. ## T have been taking hydrocod/apap 5/500 and have been changed to hydroc/apap 10/325. whichy is stronger? ## is this pill hydroco/apap ? it has M357 on it ## In regards to the original question, yes the tablet with the 3601 V contains 10mgs of Hydrocodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen and is roughly equivalent to what you were taking. The dosage of the narcotic has been raised, while the Acetaminophen has been lowered, to help protect you from the damage that long term use of higher doses of it can cause, such as liver failure. It may even be a little stronger for you and help your pain more, depending on how sensitive you are to the narcotic. You can learn more Vicodin details here. And yes, the tabl...

hydrocodone 11 weaker than 111
i take hydrocodone s chedule 111 for severe back pain. now the va says the goverment has ordered it too schedule. will this be a lot weaker? thank you ## Hello, Frank! How are you? No, the schedule a medication is listed on just designates who can prescribe it, why it can be prescribed, how much can be prescribed, whether or not it can have refills on it and etc. But has nothing to do with its efficacy and potency. 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?
