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...

VA hospitals took hydrocodone/oxycodone off their prescription list. I have 4 degenerative discs in my neck. Also constant shoulder/arm pain due to rotator cuff tears on both arms. Is there really a pharmacy out there or doctor to give my a pain /depressant pill. I live in middle west Florida. Thank you ## You will need to be treated in the private sector. You may want to check and verify in writting that the VA has taken those meds off of their prescription list. There are others who are being prescribed them. ## Thank you BL

Which Is Stronger Hydrocodone 10 325 Or Oxycodone 5 325
14 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...

I take hydrocodone 7.5 325 for pain from degenerated disks in spine and I take celebrex 200 for arthritis pain and inflamation, is there any problem with this? One medication alone does not take care of my problem. ## It is common for drs to prescribe an opiate and something for inflammation.

newest hydrocodone pill
1 Reply RSS
Have they made a new hydrocodone pill? I saw on the news last summer, talking about the new drug how it was stronger. I don't want to go to the oxy or plans yet. ## Hello, Nick! How are you? Yes, there is a new one called Zohydro, it is a time released formulation of Hydrocodone, without the Acetaminophen that's in the other Hydrocodone products that are available. It's manufactured by Zogenix and they warn that it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?

does hydrocodone acetaminophen 5 325 have codeine in it
1 Reply RSS
I have ALLERGY to codeine all I want to know is Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen 5-325 TB have codeine in this yes or no plkeasae ## Hello, Shirley! How are you? No, the active ingredients are exactly what you listed, Hydrocodone with Acetaminophen. According to the FDA, 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. There is a slight chance that you could also have an allergic reaction to another narcotic, but there's no way to know other than trying it. Is there anything else I can help with?

I had jaw surgery 10 days ago and for 4-5 days I've been taking oxycodone 5/325 because my incision opened and it is so unbearabley painful. Im Supposed To Take 1 to 2 5x325 Oxycodone every 4 hours. The Pharmasist for some reason Gave Me Hydrocodone 5/325 ...How Many Hydrocone 5/325 Equal 2 5/325 of oxycodone. SAVE ME PLEASE ## Hi, Lindsey, how are you doing? If your pharmacy gave you the wrong medication, you should really go back and let them know, so they can provide you with the correct prescription. They aren't allowed to just change it on a whim, that would require your doctor's approval. And it would take 7.5mgs of the Hydrocodone to equal each 5mg of Oxycodone, so 15mgs to equal 10 of the Oxycodone. The main issue is that you'd also be increasing the amount of Ac...
