loratab vs. vicoproffen
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...

Quantity Changed. After 7 years
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 ...

White Oblong Pill With Ex Imprint Found In My Lortab Bottle
I found a white oblong pill with Ex on it in my lortab bottle could it be a new kind of lortab, or what is it ## Hi Coty, Based on the description provided, your pill has been identified as Excedrin migraine (Acetaminophen 250 mg / Aspirin 250 mg / Caffeine 65 mg). Excedrin Migraine is used in the treatment of pain/fever and migraines. It belongs to the drug class: analgesic combinations. Learn More: Acetaminophen + ASA + Caffeine Details I hope this helps! ## Not Exedrin Migraine, they have just an E on those. It's a foreign hydrocodone pill but not as good. ## I've found that pill you're describing: white, caplet with Ex on one side, no number. Based on internet search, I also thought it was a Migraine Excedrin pill but they only have the E marking. Can you tell me where ...

im on loratab 10 ms cotin and phenagran diagnosed with chronic pain now i had to go the er due to vomiting my doctor wouldnt fill meds
I need my medication. can't go a month without them. the er doctor wrote for phenegran and 20 5mg lortabs. I call his office 3x' s and the on call dr. never call bk so im being punished for it. what do I do? I don't dr shop. I feel the people who need this are getting punished for the one's who are doing it to feel high. I need help now ## I'm sorry, but your post is not very clear. Why did the ER doctor prescribe the Lortab and is your own doctor refusing to prescribe or just hasn't returned your phone calls? It would be easier to help you with more details. These medications carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

fentynal patches withdrawals
Hi! Quick run down. I have been an addict for 15yrs. I was taking 25/10mg lortabs. I know that's not the worst there is at all but an addicts an addict, unfortunately. Now for the past 3yrs I have been on Suboxone and. during that time my original fybromialgia diagnoses turned to be actually lupus I also have many problems w my back, siatic included. All this pain was breaking through the suboxone, I know sounds impossible to some but it was. And to top off, my Sub Dr left his practice. So i figured subs weren't helping my pain and I felt strong enough and my life is great so I got off subs, opposed to a very expensive I am now being seen at PM. Dr prescribed me 10mg oxycodone.. it's a joke, because subs are extremely potent. I tried to get onto PM again (early) and if cours...
