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...

7.5 Hydrocodone 90 a month. Says do not fill until Tomorrow.
Hello. It says do not fill until tomorrow and i was curious if my Pharmacy would look past that or not? ## Hello, Pamie! How are you? No, they will not. It would be illegal for them to fill it sooner. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, drowsiness and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?

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

Tramdol 300mg
I was on hydrocodone 10/500 for years. Took myself off them when I lost my Insurance and had to take tylenol 500mg (was taking 12-16)a day >This started to cause liver damage so I was put on Tramadol 300mg (i per day and this is working nicely for me.just don't like the dizziness I get sometimes. Can Tramadol do damage with long term use? ## Hello, A J! How are you? There is always a slight risk, when you take any medication for a long period of time. Most are processed by your liver, so there is a chance it may do some damage, though the risk is very small and it is much safer than taking that much Acetaminophen in a day. Tramadol also carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation....

is hydrocodone a blood thinner
will hydrocodone cream thin the blood Yes or no ## Hydrocodone does not come in a cream. I believe you're talking about Hydrocortizone Cream. ## Hello, Mike! How are you? On top of what BL said, no Hydrocortisone in the cream is a topical steroid used to treat skin rashes and allergic reactions. And no, it should not cause blood thinning, because you usually don't absorb much of it. Side effects are usually limited to topical reactions, such as skin irritation and redness. Is there anything else I can help with?

2 hydrocodone 10 325 and ibuprofen
can these two drugs safely be taken at the same time when pain prohibits sleep? ## Hello, Scooter! How are you? It would be best not to mix them, unless your doctor has said it's okay for you to do so. There is a risk of liver damage or failure, as well as stomach damage and an increased risk of bleeding. Have you been instructed to take 2 of the Hydrocodone/APAP tablets, at once? This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.
