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 for relief of moderate to severe pain, but also commonly taken in liquid form as an antitussive/cough suppressant.[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] Contents 1 M...

2172 pill hydrocodone acetaminophen 5/325
3 Replies RSS
2172 pills from Walgreens are not any where near Watson 3202. Don't relieve pain and will give you a headache. I tried to tell the pharmacist but they said that is what they shipped. This is what I have to deal with, *****s. ## There's actually been several complaints here recently on these newer 2172 pills. Since they're generic, my guess is that the percentage of active ingredients are probably less than other manufacturer's versions. Not to mention the different binders/fillers that affect bioavailability or cause unwelcome side effects. It's a shame that pharmacies always go for the cheapest offer they can get and care nothing about quality control for their loyal customers/patients who have to rely on this medication. The entire healthcare sector and our economy...

qualitest hydrocodone 5/325 red speckled
2 Replies RSS
I was in a bad accident back in March of 2012, I was on a snow machine ( mobile for who call it that) and was hit by a large SUV. I had a shattered pelvis, broken hip and broken femur. I've found that the qualitest 5/325 white pills with red specks work best for me compared to other brands, but of late I've had to take more to feel a relief. I'm wondering if they make the same type just stronger. I don't know if it's the red specks they use in them that makes it different with others. I also just moved and am worried my new state won't have that brand even if I can't get a raised dose with my next doctor. I hate taking so many, wish I didn't have to take them at all to be honest. I have tried to go my normal route and stop taking them to lower my need for...

hydrocodone watson 780 in white
1 Reply RSS
I have a white oblong pill with watson 780 on it. I was told it was hydrocodone. What is it exactly? ## Hello, Morgie! How are you? Watson Pharmaceuticals actually lists this tablet as containing 1g of Sucralfate, a medication that is used to treat gastro-intestinal issues. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including dizziness, headache and bloating. Is there anything else I can help with?

it is a pain med from mexico??? ## Afriend of mine just returned from Mexio after having her teeth pulled and dentures made. The Dr. gave her Dorixina for pain and we were wondering, 1. what is in it 2. is there any equivilent here in the U.S. if so , What is it?? ## I was given Dorixina by an MD and relative in Colombia for migraines. I just found info in spanish on the web: it is a non-narcotic analgesic with no side-effects, and can be used with various types of pain (not just migraines). It is a much better choice than hydrocodone/codeine type meds which I have had to take a lot, so I'm very glad to find out about this although apparently it's not available in the US (no doubt for BIG PHARM reasons, since my sample is produced by Roemmers, in Venezuela). From what I've r...

white oval pill 3609 on one side V on the other
1 Reply RSS
Why am I not getting the relief for my cronic back pain with the white hydrocodone as I was with the yellow? ## Hello, Faye! How are you? Can you please double check the marking? The one with this marking on it is no longer being manufactured, due to the amount of Acetaminophen it contained, which was 500mgs with 10mgs of Hydrocodone. Thus, can you please post back and clarify? Thank you! 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.

hydrocodone pill 36 09

I found this pill in my 18 year old nieces pocket when i went to wash clothes and i've tried looking it up and cant find it anywhere. Please help. ## This tablet was manufactured by Qualitest Pharmaceuticals and they list it as having contained 10mgs of Hydrocodone and 500mgs of Acetaminophen. The reason you couldn't find it listed anywhere is due to the fact that is has been discontinued due to the amount of Acetaminophen that was in it. The FDA no longer allows combination prescription medications to contain more than 325mgs of Acetaminophen per dose, so this hasn't been manufactured for several years, now. 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....

Watson 540 Blue Oval Pill
57 Replies RSS
I found 2 blue oval shaped watson 540 pills in my sons room several months ago. What are they used for? ## this is a Lortab 10/500, my mom took these while battleing cancer, in the early stages, its for moderate to severe pain, they are addicting and you become very tollerant to the effect quickly, they have ahold of you before you know it and the withdrawal is more than the pain relief or the use of this. hope this helps, and I hope you havent found any since. ## Shirley is correct, this pill is Acetaminophen 500 mg and Hydrocodone 10 mg. Do you have any more questions or information to add? Please post back if you do. ## Yup hydrocodone 10 mg acetametaphen 500 mg. I used to take these after I had surgery to remove a large cyst from my uterus. How old is your son? Cuz these can be very...

Hey i got these pills today from walgreens and i have took 3 so far and still no effect still in pain. Has anyone else had this same problem because idk of they took most of the hydro out of these new pills but its definitely something wrong. I will not be getting these from my Dr again ## The 5/325 are worthless, have your doctor prescribe the A333 10/325. I have taken three per day (every 8 hours) for the past twelve years because of a failed Lammy. They at times don't get rid of all the pain but its bearable. ## I just got the same pills from Walgreen and also want to know ## I also just got these today and they are not releiving my pain. I'm calling Walgreens now to speak to a Pharmacist. ACTAVIS is the Mfg. This is what the Local stores are being shipped. ## I also just got...
