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...

hydrocodone longterm
I have been taking hydrocodone for about three years. Up until recently I have not exceeded the recomended dose of 8 tablets in a 24 hr period. I have been taking 12-14 tablets 2-3 days in a row then back to 8. I function better on this medication but wonder what damage the long term use could cause. I am searching for that balance of pain management/depression and healthy body.

hydrocodone 5 325
Had a tooth extracted took two 500mg of Tylenol can I take a 5 325 Vicodin three hours later ## Yep drink water ## Hi Mark! You just need to be careful of the amount of Tylenol ( acetaminophen) you take. It gives you instructions on the Tylenol bottle as to how much you can take. Remember that the Vicodin has 325 mgs in it too, from what you said. ## If you take more than 650 mg of tylenol, you have to wait at least 6 hrs before taking any more tylenol, that includes the Vicodin. Do not take more than 1,000 tylenol every 6 hrs or more than 4,000 tylenol is a 24 hr period.

detox from hydrocodone how much of the soboxin strip do i take
I have been taking hydrocodone for 2 years and need to know how much soboxin strip i take and the detox process ## Hello, Bree! How are you doing? The dosage of Suboxone has to be carefully calculated and is dependent on the severity of your addiction and the amount of the drug of choice that you were taking, so you haven't provided enough information in your post. It also can't be taken, until you are in full withdrawals, or the Naloxone in it can throw you into dangerous withdrawals. Learn more Suboxone details here. 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. Have you consulted a doctor for assistance? ## If cortisone didn't help my knee after surge...

aurobindo hydrocodone
Actually I have been taking them for about 9 months after the Watson (Norco) sold the company and made changes to their medication, they claim all they did was remove the yellow dye! BS the medication sucks, it's useless! On to aurobindo, they have worked for the last months as a good replacement however my latest refill, they are horrible, ineffective with headaches, I am guessing greed stepped in and the company made some changes, because these too are now useless! They will learn an expensive lesson as others will turn away from them as I now will. For some reason the pharm industry has less concern for the patient "customer" than any other, they think they can do as they please. ## @webhead, I agree with what you said about the pharmaceutical industry expressing less con...

If I have taken 14 hydrocodone 5/500 tablets, will it be enough to kill me?
I'm looking to overdose easierly and I was wondering if hydrocodone will help me do that. ## In this case, the Acetaminophen is much more dangerous than the Hydrocodone and the answer is yes. Acetaminophen is toxic in amounts over 4 grams in 24 hours and at this dosage, that would be only 8 tablets. 14 tablets would equal 7grams of it. Even if it does not result in a fatal overdose, the use of such an amount can result in severe damage to various body organs, such as the stomach, liver and kidneys. Are there any questions or comments? ## Hey why would you want to kill yourself! Life can be precious! Maybe you need the right person to talk to. I'm just your avg Joe but I would love to talk to you! ## I have liquid roxicet 5/325 mg /i take 5 mL every 4hours....I WANT TO KNOW IS IT...

i need to find a doctor in fort worth texas that perscribs pain killers like hydrocodones
Does anyone know a doctor that is good about prescribing pain killers like hydrocodens 10/325 in fort worth Texas iam a diabetic type 1 that has a lot of pain and really in need of a good doctor that can help me out and not think iam faking pain ## Due to the new laws that have recently been put in place, you will most likely be better off seeing a pain management specialist and there isn't a very good chance of getting this particular medication anymore. The FDA and DEA are cracking down and aren't letting general practitioners or surgeons treat chronic pain that requires long-term regular treatments. They will only be allowed to prescribe such medications for a short period of time, such as for a few weeks immediately after someone has had surgery or been injured. Learn more p...

I have a prescription for hydrocodone 'take one every 8 hours as needed' qty 60. Got them to take instead of tramadol when I'm in a lot of pain. Last week & 1/2, I've been having major pain and the dr said I could take them every 6 hours til we get worked through this. So, I'm sure I'll run out, as I'm already getting low, before the monthly refill of all my meds. Since this is only a qty of 60, how soon can I get it refilled, as the dr. told me to try that first but if they wouldn't let me, he'd write a new script. ## Since this is a controlled substance, due to the Hydrocodone in it, which is a narcotic, the pharmacy can't legally fill it for you, until it is actually due for a refill. Federal law prohibits them from doing so. They may fill ...
