how long after taking a lortab should I wait to take my suboxone
5 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 ...

White Oblong Pill With Ex Imprint Found In My Lortab Bottle
15 Replies RSS
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 ...

is lortab 10 325 weaker than 500
1 Reply RSS
Is lortab 10 / 325 weaker than lortab 10 / 500 ## Hello, Jim! How are you? Yes and no, the amount of Acetaminophen in it is lower and the ones with the higher doses are no longer available. This medication was changed and all formulations that are now available can only contain a maximum of 325mgs of Acetaminophen per dose. However, the Acetaminophen augments the action of the narcotic for some people, so the one with the higher amount of it may work better for them, but it doesn't work that way for everyone, so for some people these might basically be equivalent, since they both contain 10mgs of the Hydrocodone. 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, d...

Watson Lortab Formula Change
188 Replies RSS
Does anyone know what Watson did or why they changed their formula for Lortab 10/500? It used to be blue and when I picked up my refill today they are now white. I still have a few days of my blue left but I swapped a few so I can try the white. I'm waiting for it to start working and I took it over 2 hours ago. My rx is 1-2 every 3 hours not to exceed 7 in a day. (my pm dr wants me on a stronger med but anything above hydrocodone makes me euphoric and I can't function) The blue color lortab starts to work within 15 mins. I took my first white color lortab 2 hours ago, waited an hour and took the 2nd and nothing. I will wait 30 mins longer and switch back to the blue until I run out. This sucks. I'm a full time law student, disabled, single mom and can't use my dominate ...

r p 5 325 pill image

Wht is this I was told it was a lortab /325 round white pill it says rp with a line separating both letters and it has the imprint 325 on the other side.Is it a lortab? ## This tablet is manufactured by Rhodes Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 5mgs of Oxycodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen, so it's actually a generic for Percocet. The FDA classifies this medication as being 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?

round white pill with x on one side and 225 on the other sid
1 Reply RSS
please trying to verify if it is a 10 mg lortab or hydrocodone ## Hi carey, By an "x" do you mean to say that the pill is cross-scored (horizontally and vertically)? I'm not seeing any exact matches that fit your description, but came close finding a round white pill with "224" on one side and scored "once" on the other - which is reported to be 30mg Oxycodone HCL tablet, manufactured by Sun Pharma. This manufacturer also makes a 5mg Oxycodone HCL tablet with "223" on one side and scored on the other. However these are the only two pills I've seen that come even remotely close. Other potential matches online appear to have a different 3-digit set of numbers on one side, but do have the "cross-score" on the other. So if anything, I'm ho...
