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...

Taking Hydrocodone for Depression
294 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...

hydrocodone 5 325 to acetaminophen
3 Replies RSS
My daughter has been taking hydrocodone 5/325 every 4 hrs since Thurs afternoon. 24 hrs ago, her dr moved it to every 6 hrs, and she took her last one at 615pm last night (it's now 1250a). Can you switch to extra strength, OTC acetaminophen now (500mg tabs)? Or should we wait longer after her last hydrocodone dose? Please advise. Thank you! ## You can take up to 3000mg of acetaminophen in a 24hr period. Anymore than that should be under a doctor's care/advice. ## According to the FDA, their 'liver warning' goes by a maximum daily dosage of 4,000 mg within a 24-hour period. This is not to say that you shouldn't consult with your doctor first, but it should allow for substantial flexibility in your dosing. If you're currently taking 1300mgs a day (325mgs four times...

hydrocodone acetaminophen 7.5/325 causing bad headache
1 Reply RSS
I was just switched from hydrocodone/acetaminophen 10/325 (which I would take 1 1/2) to the 7.5/325 and I've noticed that about an hour after taking it I get a really bad headache and stomach ache. This never happened when I would take the 10/325. I even tried taking one and a half so it's closer to 10 mgs and the headache is even worse. Does anyone know what is causing the headaches and stomach ache? ## Headaches can be a normal side effect of opiate medications, as reported by the FDA. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, constipation and dry mouth. You may be experience some withdrawal effects, since your dosage has been lowered and taking one and a half may throw things off even more. Have you consulted your doctor for a possible solution?

what does a 5 mg hydrocodone look like

My dad takes for chronic pain. Found unmarked containers in his meds want to make sure they are hydrocodone 5 MG before he takes. One is white oval tablet with 105 on it other is circular tablet with .DAN on one side and 5658 ## Hello, Deb! How is your dad? The tablet with the 105 marking is manufactured by Mylan Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 7.5mgs of Oxycodone 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. The tablet with the DAN 5658 on it is now manufactured by Watson Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 10mgs of Cyclobenzaprine. The FDA classifies this medication as a muscle re...

How Often can One Take Hydrocodone 10/325mg Tabs?
34 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...

Anyone think this is just as effective as Vicodin and Watson etc? Thanks :) ## Not even close. My pain seems the same ive taken two at a time a its had no effect at all ## Yes, I have really suffered in pain this month on tris pharma and will never try them again. My chiropractor is making a lot of money this month LOL more than his usual amount. I told my pharmacist and he said he will not order them next month. I actually have a science degree, and I looked up the background of Watson which is now owned by Teva pharmaceuticals(originally out of Israel)they seem top-notch! And they produce Watson. Thank you for your reply :-) ## Please correct me if I'm wrong Kitty, but didn't Watson acquire Actavis and change their name to 'Actavis'? (Re: actavis.co.id/id/news/Watson+c...

i have been taking hydrocodone 10 500 for over 5 yrs what are the side affects without them

I have been taking hydrocodone 10.500 for over 5 yrs. what are the side affects without them ## Hi reb, If you've been taking 10mg of Hydrocodone + 500mg of Acetaminophen for over five years, the withdrawal effects from suddenly stopping them would probably be very serious from what I understand. That said, if you do intend to come off them any time soon, it should be vitally important to discuss tapering plans with your doctor first and foremost. I don't have a specific list of actual side effects, but others on here who posted similar threads relating to opiate withdrawal may give you an idea of what to expect mentally, physically, and emotionally. I also believe that having a strong support group or spiritual foundation might make going through some of the mental and emotiona...

Hydrocodone Apap 7.5-325
18 Replies RSS
I had a tooth extraction yesterday, been taking I norco 7.5-325 regularly since; took one pill an hour ago and the pain is still unbearable, can i take one more or even half a pill more? ## Hi Ryan, Generally with this type of drug the dosing instructions indicate that you should take 1 pill every 4-6 hours or so. I could be wrong, but I think this is mainly due to the concerns associated with Acetaminophen and liver toxicity. From my own personal experience, it should be fine to take a half a pill more, as they do make a stronger norco with 10mgs of Hydrocodone and 500mgs of Acetaminophen. So it would be as if you're taking the stronger version of the drug. Learn More: Acetaminophen + Hydrocodone I hope this helps! ## Actually, if the pain is still that bad, after having had the to...
