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...

can you take hydrocodone if allergic to codeine
1 Reply RSS
I have taken Tylenol 3 with codeine in it recently and I did get very nauseous and of tiny rash and when I went to get my root canal recently my doctor told me he couldn't prescribe me hydrocodone because it was the same thing I have been prescribed hydrocodone from the hospital due to my kidney stones and I've had no problem but he told me that he could not give me anything else but Tramadol since I'm allergic to codeine is that true ## Hello, Michelle123! How are you? No, that is not true, there are others you can try. They are all narcotic opiates, but they are different. The FDA warns that these medications carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, drowsiness, dry mouth, and constipation. Have you tried Tramado...

hydrocodone apap 5 500 expiration
1 Reply RSS
i found some hydrocodone in my drawer, they were kept in a dry dark place in the original container, they were prescribed in 2007 but expired in 2010 and now its about 7 years past the due date. are they still safe to take? ## Hello, Lexi! How are you? They do not become dangerous, once expired, but they do begin to lose efficacy, being that old, they will most likely not work well, anymore. Thus, it would be best to dispose of them and see your doctor for a new prescription. 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?

How Often can One Take Hydrocodone 10/325mg Tabs?
39 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...

doctors willing to prescribe pain medication in rochester, ny
17 Replies RSS
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 ...

I accidentally took on contrace yesterday by mistake and I am on Vicodin it made me sick and I couldn't sleep last night so how long after the contrave can I take a Vicodin and how long does contrave take to leave my system it was a 90 mg ## Yes, the Naloxone in it can throw you into dangerous precipitated withdrawals. You'll need to give it about 3 days, before you can take the Vicodin, again, unless your doctor instructs otherwise. The FDA warns that Vicodin carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation.

White oval pill with imprint 2172
10 Replies RSS
Found a white oval pill with imprint 2172 in my son's sock drawer and need to know what it is. ## Hi Lisa, From what I could gather, a white oval pill marked with 2172 is identified as a generic Hydrocodone Bitartrate 5mg + Acetaminophen 325mg tablet. Apparently it's a fairly new manufactured version made by Actavis and that may be why there aren't many references to it here/online yet. For verification, the national drug code is reportedly 0591-2172. I hope this helps! ## Thank you so much for the information David this was very helpful ## This is true. New generic for Norco 3/325. I got this for my back (sciatica). ## Sorry, my typing. It's generic for the Norco 5/325. ## Thanks so much Sven this really helps alot it's scary to know that my son has this medication ...

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...

hydrocodone acetaminophen norco 10 325 mg prescription
4 Replies RSS
i have a prescription from my pain management doctor for norco 10-325 but it has been on back order each time ive tried to have it filled at not only my pharmacy Rite Aide but other major pharmacy's have also been unable to fill my prescription is their any reason for this or is there any suggestion's ## Two things are possible. One, when it was reclassified as a Schedule II the bottles the pharmacy's had were sent back to the manufacturer. It is possible they are running short or don't have any. Second, this time of year it is not unusual for Schedule II meds to become very hard to find or not be able to find them at all. The reason is because the manufacturers are only given a certain amount of active ingredients for 1 year. When that runs out, they have to wait until ...
