has tylenol been taken out of lortab 10/500 ## It hasn't been taken out, but reduced because of the effects on the liver. ## FDA now requires all prescription meds to have no more than 325 mg of tylenol in each dose. There is a form of Hydrocodone that does not contain tylenol. It is an Extended Release, it is Zohydro.

what is an oblong orange pill, scored with a v on one side and a number on the other. My aunt takes it and she thinks it is a 10/3.25 Lortab pill. ## Hello, Sandilei! How are you? Can you check what the numbers are and post back? That's would enable me to identify it for you. Thanks! 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.

Lortab 10-325

I am taking 1 10-325 lortab after knee replacement. In the hospital they were giving me 2 every 4 hours. One is absolutely not making it during the night. Can I safely go to 2 or 2 and one half? ## Hello, Sharon! How are you? It would be best not to raise your dosage, without your doctor's approval. The Acetaminophen in this can be very dangerous to your liver, so taking too much for too long could result in liver damage or failure. That's on top of the habit forming potential of the narcotic, Hydrocodone, that's also in this medication. Typical side effects from the NIH can include nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. It would be much safer for you to speak to your doctor, so they can prescribe something else, if necessary. Is there anything else I can...

how long after taking a lortab should I wait to take my suboxone
4 Replies RSS
Help! I've been on suboxone for 3 years and havent really had any relapses, especially in the last year. I have the flu of death currently and couldn't resist my mom offering me two of her lortab 10 mgs. That was about 12 hours ago. I can't tell if I'm having wds or not, honestly the pills didn't even help that much, and I'd like to take my sub asap. BUT since its my last one until the insurance prior authorization goes through, tomorrow or the next day, I'm only going to be able to take half my dose of suboxone. How long do I have to wait for wds to usually start? Like I said it didn't even feel like the lortab did anything ## Thought this made more sense :( it meant to say that I can't tell if what I'm having Is wds because I have had the worst ...

what goes into Lortab

What is a combination of medication that provides the same level of pain relief as lortab ## Hello, Katie! How are you? If you're asking for some type of over the counter combination, there isn't one. Lortab contains the narcotic Hydrocodone coupled with Acetaminophen to augment its action, so there is nothing over the counter that will be equal to its efficacy. 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? ## this is for verwon, you seem to be on the posts a lot and have good info, i am in dallas tx looking for a doctor here to prescribe this rx. Let me know if you can help. {edited for privacy}. thanks ## Hello, Kare...

what is stronger than lortab 7.5
1 Reply RSS
I usually take 2 lortab 7.5 every 6 hours. I haVe been reading a lot about the different in hydro and oxcy and the Tylenol in and what the numbers mean. Talking with friends who only have limited to none knowledge about the subject I heard about a lortab 10 or lartab 20? Is it more hydro fro pain relief or just more Tylenol added to them? I've had 3 back surgery and I am want more of the burning pain to go away. To me lartabs worked better than oxcy 5 or 10s. ## The highest amount of medication in Lortab, or any other hydrocodone combination med is 10 mg hydrocodone and 325 acetaminphen. The most amount of acetaminphen that a prescription meds can contain now is 325 mg.

Quantity Changed. After 7 years
3 Replies RSS
Since 1-2007 I have been taken 10mg lortab--180 monthly. Quantity received this month were 10mg lortab--140 monthly. Very upset! My health has not improved. Actually there are times where pain meds do not do the job. Mostly when it rains or when it's cold outside. My doctor is aware of this. I finally informed her. This has been months ago, so thinking this has nothing to do with lower quantity. Having been afraid to complain about periodical pain increases. Figure doctor would take me off meds. I have tried to adjust to dose, but this is just stressing me out. Which causes my fibromyalgia to flair worse, More pain.... My tests have always been fine. No illegal or non-written drugs in system. Do not know what to do, or where I stand.??? ## Hello, Sallie06! How are you? I'm very ...

I'm a 34 yr old woman and have had 2 hip replacements in the past 4 months. I had to travel 3 hours to a specialist to have them done. Since they changed the prescribibg laws I couldn't get my regular pain meds called in. Loratab 7.5 mg. My ortho told me to go se my general practitioner until I came back to him for follow up. My general prescribed me vicoproffen 7.5. What's the difference? Is one more effective than the other? ## Both meds are covered by the new Federal Law. Lortab is Hydrocodone and Acetaminophen.Vicoprofen is Hydrocodone and Ibuprofen. The strength of both meds you have been prescribed have the same amount of hydrocodone in them, 7.5 mgs. ## @shelly, Following suit with what BL previously posted, one other factor you might also have to take into considerat...
