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...

Which Is Stronger Hydrocodone 10 325 Or Oxycodone 5 325
96 Replies RSS
I have been taking Hydrocodone 10/325 for chronic pain, 1 pill every 6 hours. My Dr. just prescribed Oxycodone 5/325 with up to 2 pills every 6 hours. Which is stronger? ## The oxy is stronger but who knows your body may b used 2 the vicoden. But if he is allowing u 2 take 2 @ a time it would b better if he would just give u the percocet 10/325 as it would b as effective with 1/2 the amount of aspirin. Try it out n post your feedback. ## Scott is correct, the Oxycodone is actually stronger than the Hydrocodone. To equal 10mgs of the Hydrocodone, you only need 6.67mgs of the Oxycodone, so I'd advise caution when you first take them, you probably shouldn't take 2 of them, until you try one and see how well it works for you. Are there any questions or comments? ## Thank you for the...

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...

What is the difference Between M360 (white) and Watson 853 (yellow)?
8 Replies RSS
I have both M360 and Watson 853 pills. I'm not exactly sure if the are the same of if one is stronger. ## The tablet marked M360 contains 7.5mgs of Hydrocodone and 750mgs of Acetaminophen and the tablet marked Watson 853 contains 10mgs of Hydrocodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen. These are both different strengths of the active ingredients in Vicodin, or Lortab, which are narcotic pain relievers. Side effects may include: nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Learn more: Is there anything else I can help you with? ## The 10/325 are way better on your body especially your liver and kidneys! the more acetaminophen you take doors off you are. if I remember correctly a maximum dose of acetaminophen in one day is 4000 milligrams. don't quote me but I'm pretty sure on that. so...

different manufacturers hydrocodone
4 Replies RSS
I have taken hydrocodone 10 mg for several years, and sometimes get jittery..sort of like speedy..and uncomfortable. I noticed the other day that I have two different sizes of pills(from a different pharmacy last month). Is it possible that one manufacturer has an ingredient different from another? My doctor and I have been trying to identify why I get jittery for over a year..and I think it has to do with manufacturers. ## There can be differences between generic medications, since under the Hatch-Waxman Act of 1984 they are allowed to differ from the name brand by as much as plus or minus 20% in the amount of the active ingredients. They also don't have to measure against each other, thus it is possible that one of them is higher or lower in the amount of Hydrocodone, which could ...

Doctors in Houston, TX That Will Prescribe Hydrocodone
5 Replies RSS
I recently moved to Houston and have no idea where to look for a doctor, especially one who will write a prescription for pain medication without making you feel like a drug head. Just like many many other people I have sciatica & a degenerative disc in my back. I can usually tolerate the occasional flair ups with just Motrin but the pain that usually lasts for a day or so has been constant for over a week and Motrin and Tylenol around the clock have not helped at all. Please any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. ## Hi , I myself am new here and found a great doctor at houston pain centers in Sugar Land Texas. By great I mean, he listens, reviewed my records, visited with my previous Dr. Was very thorough and agreed to continue my pain management. ## Texas pain solutions on ...

Taking Hydrocodone for Depression
428 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 apap solution 7.5/325 15ml
1 Reply RSS
I have to give this medicine to my child. What I want to know is how many ml's are in 4 grams, because it says don't exceed 4 grams per day? ## 4 grams would be 4,000 milligrams of the Acetaminophen, so since this medication contains 325mgs per dose, you should be fine, as long as you follow the doctor's dosing instructions. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?

hydrocodone 10 325 amnea
1 Reply RSS
I have been taking norco 10/325 yellow oval pill for a few years but yesterday what I got was different they were white oblong pills which says hyd/apap 10/325 mg tab amnea on it and the numbers on the tablet are G 037. Are they the same? The norco always worked very well but these white tabs don't seem as strong or work as well. ## Yes, they are the same, the tablet with the G 037 on it has just been manufactured by a different company, in this case Tris Pharma. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. How many have you taken, so far?

Walgreens filled for me this time and b4 giving it to me asked "your allergic to tramadol? But you've taken norco?" Being in a hurry I didn't think about it..but I've had to take 2 and I'm itching and breaking out soo I think I'll have to ask them about that ## They are different medications, however, when someone discovers they are allergic to one medication, there is always a risk that they may find more they are allergic to, as well. In such cases, it is best to stop taking it and consult your doctor immediately, according to NIH warnings, such reactions tend to get worse with repeated exposure. Has there been any change?

hydrocodone/acetaminophen 5-325mg vs ibuprofen 100mg
1 Reply RSS
Which is better to take for relieving pain from a pinched nerve (hydrocodone/acetaminophen 5-325mg or ibuprofen 100mg)? ## They really aren't comparable, to be honest. Hydrocodone with Acetaminophen is a narcotic pain reliever, while Ibuprofen is just a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory. The FDA warns that Hydrocodone carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. Which one has your doctor instructed you to take?
