how strong is hydrocodone acetaminophen 3 325
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. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

hydrocodone acetaminophen 5 325 efffects v/s body weight?
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-half every 3 hours vs. full every 6 hourd
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. ...

hydrocodone-apap 7.5 325 Is the 7.5 hydrocodone on one side of the pill and the 325 acetaminophen on the other?

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.

Missing prescription pain pills
I need to know what these 3 pills are.? Each pill is white with a dividing line where the pill could be cut in half on one side and M367 stamped on the back side.

Which Is Stronger Hydrocodone Apap 5mg 500mg Or 10 325 ## Hi Kim, I can't really tell you if one will be stronger or not since medications can affect everyone differently, some people get great results from taking, but there are others that it doesn't work for; the only way to find out is to actually try it. If I were to make an assumption though, I'd say that the 10/325 combination may be more effective, since the amount of Hydrocodone is doubled and the amount is Acetaminophen is not completely cut in half in comparison to the 5/500 combination. I wasn't able to find a list of all the various dosages that are available for Hydrocodone + Acetaminophen. So it could be that my assumption is wrong, but none the less, you'd have to try them both and compare the effects ... ...
