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 as an antitussive/cough suppressant, but also commonly taken orally for relief of moderate to severe pain.[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] The Administrative Controll...

Buldging disk in lower back and also broke my L2 vertebrae in 2006 pain is intolerable ## Hello, Tamtam! How are you? Due to the new regulations set forth by the DEA last year, you'll need to see a specialist to have pain medications prescribed. A general practitioner won't prescribe there for you. However, do you currently have a PCP that could refer you to someone? If so, that might be the quickest and easiest way to find the help you need. Can anyone recommend a good doctor in that area? ## I've tried Piedmont Comprehensive Pain Management in Greenville and the dr I'm seeing cut my pain meds in half at my first visit and is threatening to not prescribe "one single pill". Despite saying they would monitor my pain levels closely over time I barely see the dr as ...

i have been taking hydrocodone 10 and my doctor just changed me to acetaminophen cod3 are they the same that is what was told by
6 Replies RSS
I have been taking Hydrocodone10 since March for RSD the doctor changed me this week to Acetaminophen/cod3 The doctor said that the law made it where he can not give the hydrocodone any more . I want to know if they are the same I was told they are the same. I scared to take because I have sleep apna and a real sensitivity to codone. I get breathing problems and rashes. Not sure what to do at this point. can not take most opids drugs. ## Hydrocodone is an opiate. Tylenol #3 has 30 mg Codiene and 325 mg Tylenol. Tylenol # 3 is not as strong as hydrocodone. Your dr can still write rxs for hydrocodone if he is writting you a rx for Tylenol #3. But, a lot of drs are switching their patients from hydrocodone to tylenol #3 because hydrocodone combination meds became a Schedule II med Monday. ...

hydrocodone apap 7.5 liquid
4 Replies RSS
Hi I was prescribed hydrocod/apap elix 7.5/500 sol. I was wondering what the dose would be to be equal to the 7.5 hydrocodone pill. ## It is exactly equivalent, the intention of it is to give 7.5mgs of Hydrocodone and 500mgs of Acetaminophen in each dose. Side effects will also be the same and may include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and dry mouth. Are there any comments or questions? ## is the liquid hydrocodone 7.5 500 equal to the pills 7.5? ## is there any where i can get my perscription for liquid loratab filled 500mg ## I am having a problem getting my hubby's Lortab Elixir script filled. Neither RiteAid or Walgreens can get it. Do you know why? He had 35 radiation treatment on his jaw and can't eat without taking a half dose before meal. It's going to be an emergenc...

Hydrocodone refill on 1st of month, can I refill on July 31st?
2 Replies RSS
My pain specialist prescribes Hydrocodone 7.5/325, 90 pills per month. He gives me scripts that are post dated, 3 months at a time. My refill date is the 1st of every month. My question is this... the script is a 30 day supply and since July has 31 days in it, can I get them refilled on July 31st instead of waiting until August 1st? Hope this makes sense. Thanks for any help to my question.... ## Hello, Clatono! How are you? Yes, you should be able to get it filled on the 31st. Ultimately, it's up to your pharmacy, but there shouldn't be any problem. 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. Is there anything else I can help...

Hi I am trying to find a doctor in the Rochester, NY area that will prescribe hydrocodone or oxycodone. I am even willing to travel to Buffalo area, that is how hard it is to find a doctor that just doesn't want to give you a bunch of shots that don't work. I have been on opiates for 15 years. I just recently left my pain doctor that was prescribing me fentanyl. I asked to be switched to something not as strong and an oral medication. I hated the patches. She refused and wrote me for a month and told me to find a different doctor. Now I am in a pain management setting that will only do inj's., I just want to be pain free and be able to play with my daughter again. I feel horrible when she asks when my back is going to be fixed. She is only 5 so she doesn't understand. I ...

If I have taken 14 hydrocodone 5/500 tablets, will it be enough to kill me?
8 Replies RSS
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...

what s the difference between white and yellow hydrocodone
6 Replies RSS
I read thst the yellow norcos have dye and the white norcos don't. One is fat soluble and the other is water soluble. What's the difference ## What pharm in chandler az still carries the white 7.5 hydrocodene ## Hello, Linda! How are you? Are you asking about the ones that were yellow, but are now white? If so, then the only difference is the removal of the dye, nothing else. Nik, I saw your other post and I'm sorry, but the ones with the higher amounts of Acetaminophen in them are no longer being manufactured, so you can't obtain them, anywhere. 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? ## YOU ARE WRONG,VE...

832 93 how can you tell if you are taking a placebo of the medication you used to take
11 Replies RSS
My doctor and I had discussed my quitting taking Clonopin 0.5 mg. as I have taken for so long, so he told me he would submit a placebo at some time without telling me. Got my RX filled and keep sweating and getting headaches. Could this be from the placebo as the pill looks and has the same imprint as the original one I was taking. How can you tell? ## What kind of doctor would do that to you? That's crazy. You should be tapered off any medication like that. I would find a new doctor. ## If it has the same marking, then it is the same medication. Your doctor cannot manufacture and them have a pharmacy give you a fake pill, especially with the marking that is registered with the FDA as containing that medication. Doing such would be illegal. And the other poster is correct, this type...

Which Is Stronger Hydrocodone 10 325 Or Oxycodone 5 325
52 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...
