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 Administrative Controlled Substances Code Number (ACSCN) for hy...

hydrocodone law refill laws in fl.
My husband went to the doctor on the 26th of nov. and got his refill for hydrocodone. being that Oct. has 31 days in that month, what date by law is the first earliest day he can refill them. This is falling on Thanksgiving and he can not be driving or riding in a car without his meds. ## It depends on what date in Oct he had the last rx filled. It also depends on what pharmacy you use and your insurance company. Usually, if he has not tried to get another rx filled early in recent months, he should be able to get it filled within one of two days of him running out. Some of the chain pharmacies have policies on the max number of tablets he can have left and get a refill.

hydrocodone ip466
Text alerts plz.on prescription drugs. ## Hello, Shawnquita! How are you? I'm sorry, but this site doesn't offer a text alert service. However, there is an email newsletter you can sign up, by putting your email address in the box, when making or responding to a post. The tablet with the IP 466 marking actually contains 800mgs of Ibuprofen, so it is not any type of narcotic. It is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that's used to treat pain, fever and swelling. Its side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach irritation and increased risk of bleeding. Is there anything else I can help with?

Hydrocodone strength
What is stronger of the two 10/325 or 7.5/750 Hydrocodone ## 10/325 stronger more hydrocodone with 10 mg per pill and only 325ancetametaphen were as the 7.5mg 750 is only 7.5 mg of hydrocodne the hydrocodone is the prescription the 750 and 325 is just the over the count tylonal I awful at spelling. Spell check makes you dumb but I hope this helps ## That is mostly correct, however, you cannot buy Acetaminophen over the counter in higher than 500mgs, which would be Extra Strength Tylenol. But the smaller numbers do refer to the Hydrocodone, which is a narcotic pain reliever, so the higher the number, the higher the dosage and the stronger the medication. The maximum you can get of it in the US is 10mgs. The common name brands for this are Lortab and Vicodin. Common side effects may inclu...

how long does hydrocodone side effects last
how long do hydrocodone side effects last? I had gotten hurt by my horse and was in really bad pain, I took a hydrocodone I had left over from the year before when I had my wisdom teeth taken out. Shortly after taking the pill I became dizzy and nauseated. When I stood up and attempted to move I would feel the need to vomit. This lasted from 2:30 in the afternoon until noon the following day. Is there any way hydrocodone could have caused all of this continuing to the next day? ## It certainly can, especially if you're sensitive to it and it sounds like that may be the case with you. Hydrocodone is a narcotic analgesic, so it can affect some people that way and likely means you should avoid it in the future, since there are other options you can take that may not affect you so sever...

pharmacies in an area las vegas/henderson nv
where can I find hydrocodone 10/325 in stock in the las vegas/Henderson, nv area ## Hello, LMJ! How are you? I'm sorry, but there's no directory of pharmacies according to what they do or do not have in stock that I can refer to for you. Additionally, we are also now into the time of year when shortages of most controlled substances occur, due to mandatory manufacturing limits. Once a manufacturer reaches their yearly allotted limit, they cannot manufacture any new product, until after the new year. Each year, demand inevitably exceeds supply and we end up with shortages for the last few months. 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. The best suggesti...

when do you know they are too old to take
I have hydrocodone that was prescribed in 2009. Are they still good? ## Hi gina, According to two different articles from the LA Times and Harvard Medical School, respectively, they should still be safe/effective for up to 15-30 years or more. So as long as you kept them stored properly (i.e in a cool dark place), I wouldn't worry at all about them degrading so soon. I hope this helps!

hydrocodone should it be highly restrictive
The AMERICAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION, THE US BOARD OF PHARMACISTS, , TAMERICAN PHARMACISTS ASSOCIATION, THE AMERICAN OSTEOPATHiC ASSOCIATION, and almost all 50 State's boards were against this debacle we are in ## @kim, Determining whether hydrocodone should be highly restricted or not is always going to be a hot debate between those in chronic pain who need this drug to function and those in the DEA/FDA/medical field who feel a strong sense of responsibility to fight back through restrictive use of controlled substances. In my opinion, other countries such as Portugal are a better example of how restricted things should be. Over there ALL drugs are decriminalized and instead of getting thrown in jail or being reprimanded for using these substances, you are offered treatment and mental ...
