Hydrocodone Overview

Hydrocodone is a semi-synthetic opioid synthesized from codeine, one of the opioid alkaloids found in the opium poppy. It is a narcotic analgesic used orally as an antitussive/cough suppressant, but also commonly taken orally for relief of moderate to severe pain.[1] 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 United States.[2] The Administrative Controll...

hydrocodone/acetaminophen 7.5-300 and acetaminophen/codeine 300-30mg
1 Reply RSS
I have two different drugs given for two different dental surgeries. The first one, the 7.5-300 says to take every 6-8 hours so I thought it was the stronger of the two. The other one says to take every 4-6 hours. Which of these drugs is really stronger? I want to take the stronger one at night so I can sleep and the weaker one during the day so I can be more alert. ## Hello, Sharon! How are you? I'm happy to help you with this. The one with the Hydrocodone in it is stronger, Codeine is actually weak comparatively. It's 30mgs in the one is only equivalent to 4.5mgs of the Hydrocodone. The FDA classifies this as 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 ...

inas pharmaceuticals hydrocodone

Have 10 tab blister pack of caplets with no logo. However, outside says Mallinckrodt. I peeled that away and Inas Pharmaceuticals was on the foil of the blister pack. All I can read is I believe contents: sodium 50mg. but the rest is cut off. Is it possible that Inas manufactures for Mallinckrodt and they add the logo? Are these safe? ## Inas Pharmaceuticals is not Mallinckrodt. Inas is located in India. What you have was not maunfactured by Mallinckrodt. There is no way of knowing what the tablets contain. ## @Ruth, From what I've researched, BL is correct in stating that there is no relation between Mallinckrodt and Inas Pharmaceuticals. Mallinckrodt reportedly has headquarters in Dublin, Ireland + St. Louis, MO (USA), while Inas is solely based in Gujarat, India. Given this infor...

People, if you have pain go see a doctor and get a prescription. Stop taking these meds recreationally. Enjoy the world and take yourself out of the slump you are in by looking around at the beauty of the world. Move away from haters, pride, anger, laziness, and trouble.

watson 10 325 hydrocodone with no imprint
2 Replies RSS
Hi. Came across a Norco 10/325 with simply "M367" and no "Watson" imprint. Real or garbage? ## @Stephen, Legitimate M367 pills don't say "Watson" on them. They only have the M367 imprint on the front and a vertical score line on the back side. Also, just for the record, these pills in particular are reportedly manufactured by Mallinckrodt, not Watson/Actavis. For verification, they carry a National Drug Code of 00406-0367 and are approximately 15.00 mm in size. You are right though about them being 10mg Hydrocodone bitartrate + 325mg Acetaminophen; a generic for Norco. Hope this helps! ## Extremely helpful and appreciated:-) There's so much bootleg garbage out there. Peace out!

Need help in Florida
1 Reply RSS
I hurt my back while on vacation and a doctor said he could not prescribe hydrocodone, which is what my normal doctor gives me, because I am not a Florida resident. Is this true everywhere or just with this doctor? ## It is up to each individual dr in every state to decide if he wants to prescribe pain meds. There are no laws that say you must be a resident of a state before a dr can prescribe you pain meds or any other medication. The dr lied.

Ow is give me. 3doses off 50 mg of methadone that I cant function on ## Methadone is bad news.My uncle was on it 3 days and died from it.I advise anyone not to take it. ## Hello, Jaskn! How are you? I'm very sorry that you're in pain. I'm not sure how things work there. Is there a pain management specialist that you can see that may help you more? The FDA classifies Hydromorphone and Methadone as narcotic analgesics, so they have the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

I supost to have narco 10 and the # on it is 3203 is that a 10 are a 7.5 ## Hello, Sam! How are you? The tablet with the marking WATSON 3203 on it is manufactured by Watson Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 7.5mgs of Hydrocodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen. Did you receive these from your pharmacy? If so and your doctor prescribed the 10mg, then they have made an error. The FDA classifies this medication as 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.
