Foot surgery, took one pill 5/325 rapid pulse, blurry vision small headache. Only lasted for about half hour. ## Hello, Kate! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem you had. Which medication are you asking about? There are several available in that dosage. Generally, if it isn't time released, you can cut or break it in half, but you can't do so with something that is time released, because that creates the risk of your getting too much of the active ingredients at once. 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 you cut a hydracodon 7 5 325 tab in half if it is not scored

I really need to know if I can cut in half the mallinckrodt 7.5 325 hydrocodin. I usually get the scored qualitest 7.5 325 I take one half 4 times aday, but, my pharmacist switched to the unscored tablet. ## Hi yvonne, Usually when there is a score line (divid) embedded into the tablet, it means the manufacturer purposely made it so patients could easily cut it in half. However based on my own past experience having to split a Norco tablet without a score line, I'd still feel safe cutting the pill in half AS LONG AS the drug itself is not in extended-release form; which it doesn't sound like yours is. Some patients may not agree with me on cutting it in half when there is no score line present, but I haven't heard of any good reason not to when it comes to this particular ta... ...

I just had surgery and was prescribed Percocet for pain. I stopped taking it yesterday but still feel out if it and dizzy today? How long will I feel the effects of this med? ## Those can be normal side effects and it may take a few days to wear off. 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. If your doctor okays it, you should be able to cut these in half and take a lower dose to alleviate your pain. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

I am on 5-325. 7.5-325 is more expensive. can I cut a pill in half to get the 7.5 ## Hello, Charlie! How are you? No, that's not a good idea, because you will also get more Acetaminophen that way. You should only do that, if your doctor approves. 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.

Hello: I'm 62 yr. old man, taking Hydrochlorothiazide & Metoprolol for high blood pressure. Have moderate to severe osteoarthritis and recently had an auto accident with a bad case of whiplash. Dr. is prescribing 5-325 hydrocodone for pain in back & neck (I weight 265-270). 1 every 8 hrs. Some days it works ok but never eliminates the pain..... Should I cut them in half and take every 4 hrs? Am afraid od getting addicted. By the way, I've previously been told by same Dr that I do NOT have an addictive personality.... I don't understand. I hate taking any medication. How about people that have to take similar meds for long term pain care... can they avoid becoming addicted?... I'm concerned due to the fact that I was just told this week that the arthritis in my sp... ...

hydrocodone-apap 7.5 325 Is the 7.5 hydrocodone on one side of the pill and the 325 acetaminophen on the other? Can I take half a pill if I chose to or do I need to take a whole pill? ## No, that's not the way it works, both medications are equally distributed throughout the tablet. And yes, you can cut them in half, if necessary unless your doctor or pharmacist has given you some specific reason that you shouldn't do so. Learn more Vicodin details here.

hydrocodone 5 325 3604 & 5 325 3202 (Watson)
1 Reply RSS
Am having knee replacements soon, had RNY so can't take any anti-inflammatories. Have been taking 1/2 of a 5-325 for pain made by Qualitest & have a V on one side & 3604 on other. Tablets are scored so can break easily. No problem with stomach. Latest Rx are same color but say Watson on one side and 3202 on other side and, though they are scored to break in half, are really hard to break..sometimes breaking into several pieces. Also, have had ulcer and stomach really burns, especially when I break the tablet into two parts. Could it be the fillers? ## Yes, there could be a filler that's causing more stomach acid. Have you talked to your doctor about possibly taking them with an antacid? As to breaking them, it would be much easier if you got a pill cutter, they are avail... ...

My elderly mother has shingles and was give hydrocodone 5mg with 325 mg acetaminophen. Can i give her half a tablet every three hours instead of a full tablet every six hours to cut down on the possibility of dizziness and falling? ## You need to wait 4 hrs because of the tylenol. ## And it really should be dosed as prescribed by her doctor. Has she experienced dizziness from it? If so, you could try giving her half a tablet every 4 to 6 hours, if her doctor approves. 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. ...

its white maybe a hint of yellow its tablet form can be cut in half and has a V or check mark on one sign almost like square root sign but nothing on the other....I was told it was 1mg xanax or alprazolam...anyone know? ## If there are no additional numbers to the imprint, then no, it is not a prescription medication of any type. The ones with just the V logo and nothing else are actually over the counter products. There is one that looks like this that contains 325mgs of Acetaminophen, it is a generic or store brand of Tylenol. Learn more Acetaminophen details here. I am not sure if that's what this one is, because the company does make several different over the counter products. It's just the one that I am personally familiar with.

splitting percocet
1 Reply RSS
I am taking oxycodo-APAP 10-325 ,a generic for Percocet. It is an oval shape withM523 on one side and 10/325 on the other. My Dr. said I could split the pill if it is too strong. But there is no score line. Can or should this pill be spit to receive half the dosage? ## The best advice I can give is to listen to what your doctor said. From personal experience when there was no score line on a pill I would still cut in half if it was too strong and simply take half the dose. I don't think you should worry if your doctor gave you the ok to do so. After splitting the pill in half, just be sure to follow your doctors orders on when to take the pill every so many hours. ...

I was in an auto accident almost 9 years ago and have had low and mid back pain ever since. I have had a few things done over the years (mri,facet joint injections, etc) and everything has came back clean or hasn't helped. At the moment I go to pain management that does not do anything for me. I have been there 3 years and have had nothing but trigger point injections. They won't up my pain meds either! I have been on hydrocodone 10/325 for 3 years. My back hurts through the pain meds all the time and the one time I told my doctor that my pain meds don't work very good, my doctor said I was an addict and cut my prescription in half. I'm scared to say anything else, since my back hurts all the time and if they cut me again, it will be horrible. Sorry for the long explanat... ...

Will I have a problem quitting NORCO?
1 Reply RSS
After being in a very serious Car/Truck accident half a year ago, it is time for me to get off two 10-325 NORCOs a day. I am still in pain but soon within 6 months I would have no more. Is it hard to withdraw from a small dose like this? I don't feel dependent although still taking it! ## Hello, Eddy! How are you? I'd still suggest proceeding with caution and tapering, rather than stop abruptly, since you've been taking them for quite awhile. Unless your doctor says otherwise, you can cut these tablets into smaller pieces to gradually reduce the amount you're taking. 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? ...

Can I break these in half ? ## No, this is a regular release formulation, so yes, you can cut or break them, as long as your doctor approves.

I was just prescribed this med as Previously I have been on 5/325 oxycodone x4 daily. ( for 3 years now) I cut them in half for 7.5 dose as prescribed for breakthrough pain x3 daily. I also take 200mg Ultram ER. once a day. Will this new med react differently in my system? Last longer or shorter term relief? Dr changed due to the apap and liver concerns. ## If you have been taking Oxycodone already, your reaction and side effects really shouldn't be any different, though since it is a higher dosage that you are getting all at once, since it's immediate release, they may be more pronounced. Such as: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and dry mouth. It also should last about the same amount of time, it just releases the medication faster than the regular release tablets that you were t... ...
