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] Contents 1 Medical uses 2 Adverse effects 3 Contraindication...

hydroco acetamin 7 5 325mg tab
what is the difference between the 325mg and the 7.5 325mg? ## Hello, Pat! How are you? There should be 2 numbers listed for anything that contains Hydrocodone and Acetaminophen, for instance, in the second one you've listed, that designates 7.5mgs of the narcotic Hydrocodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen. 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. Thus, you've not listed the complete information for the first one, since that only lists 325mgs of Acetaminophen. Can you please double check your information and post back? Thanks! ## All that is listed on my bottle is 7.5-325MG TAB MALLINO

What is the shelf life of watson 385
I have had these for a while and don't know if they will hurt me, help me or just be ineffective. ## Hello, Greg! How are you? These tablets contain 7.5mgs of Hydrocodone and 500mgs of Acetaminophen, this dosage is no longer being manufactured. 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. If they are in a bottle as dispensed by your pharmacy, then they expire one year from the date they were dispensed, because those bottles expose them to the elements that cause degradation. They don't become harmful, but they do lose effective, so you should just dispose of them. Is there anything else I can help with? ## The DOD has done multiple studies on degradation ...

ive been taking hydrocodone 7 5 325 for awhile sometimes i get nausea and throw up at end its alittle blood could that b from an ulcer
Im scared when that happens throwing up little blood at end . I have 2 herniated discs in lower back and degenarative neck pain that's why Dr presribed me the pain med. So why would there b blood when I get nauseous and throw up? Any answers? ## Hello, Sunshine! How are you? Yes, it is most likely from an ulcer or gastritis, both of which can result in stomach bleeding. It would be best to have it checked out, since it can get very painful and possibly life threatening, if left to worsen. 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. How often does it happen?

This tablet contains 10mgs of Hydrocodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen and you may be allergic to one of those active ingredients. 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 taken anything for the hives? Did you discuss the problem with your doctor?

Is hydrocodone DOT approved
My family doctor subscribed 10mg Hydro's for me for continuing pain from a lumbar x 4 back fushion. He told me that these were DOT exceptable providing they did not cause drowsiness. Now that he can no longer do DOT medicals with the laws being changed the new DOT Doc says I have to stop taking them even when prescribed and not at work! Please, what's the true story on this prescription drug??? Thank you, Robert ## DOT states that you must have proof that you're taking them legally if you come back positive for them on a drug panel. But, a lot may depend on exactly what it is that you do. See DOT Rule 49 CFR Part 40 Section 40.139 at the DOT website.

hydrocodone acetaminophen 7.5 325
My doctor changed my medication from Lortab 7.5 500 to Norco 7.5 325, but now i'm super sleepy for about 2 hours now. Any answers ? ## It might be a slight withdrawal effect, due to the lower amount of Acetaminophen, because it potentiates the Hydrocodone. It usually takes about a week or so, for your body to adjust. However, if it continues past that, or worsens, you should consult your doctor. 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? ## Its been about 1 1/2 months, but I just found out. The lower the apap the higher Hydrocodone, that's what's make me sleepy now. If you take 1 tylenol with it - it reduces the...
