Zohydro Er 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 DEA number for hydrocodone is 9193 and the aggregate production...

10 mg Zohydro ER strength compared to 10 mg narco ?
Has anyone taken 10 mg hydrocodone tabs 1to 3 tabs at once to help with your pain. I want to know what I can expect in the strength of 10 mg er once taken . Is it the same as 1 hydro or much stronger ? I have some breathing issues taking 10 mg OxyContin but not with 15 -30 mg. IR 30 mg oxycodone. ## The FDA considers oxy and hydro to be morphine equivalents, but some feel oxy is stronger. Zohydro is a 12hr er med. Depending on how often you were taking oxy, to replace a 10mg er dose your doc would probably start you at 15mg or 20mg Zo and adjust from there. A problem with taking three ir norco doses at once is that each dose usually has 325mg of acetaminophen. While many docs feel that up to three grams of acetaminophen a day not a problem, it serves to analgesic purpose for real pain a...

Zohydro works
I started taking Zohydro for my chronic pain last night. I had the first full nights sleep I've had in many years. I woke up refreshed and was able to get some housework done today. It's sad that people will die from abusing this drug, but then some of them chose this path knowing the risks. I did not choose to have this debilitating pain. For me and others like me it is a Godsend. It's not that easy to obtain. Once prescribed it has to be approved by the government which takes about a week. Then the pharmacy has to order it. It's expensive even with insurance. For me, $177 a month as opposed to $10.17 a month for Norco. ## Hello, Cindy! How are you? I'm glad that it's working well for you. It is a time released formulation of Hydrocodone. This is a narcotic anal...

zohydro for pain managment
WHAT PAIN CLINICS IN MS OR LA PRESCRIBE ZOHYDRO ## Hello, Deanna! How are you? I'm sorry, but there is no listing of doctors according to what they will or will no prescribe that I can refer to for you. Additionally, if you call around to doctors and ask them to prescribe a specific medication, they will see that as drug seeking behavior and most won't even let you get in the door for an appointment. Do you currently have a PCP that you see regularly? If so. having them refer you to someone may be the easiest way of getting the help you need. 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. Can anyone recommend a good doctor in that area?

How long have you been taking the Oxycodone? It can cause that in some people that take it, but it should improve once your body gets used to the medication, which may take about 4 weeks or so. 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. Have you talked to your doctor about the problem? They may als...
