hydrocodone alternatives
I have taken hydrocodone 5/325 for knee pain as needed for about 9months, while waiting to move to a different city. I finally made the move in mid December, and had total knee replacement on Feb. 4. After having morphine and a shot block to that leg, pain in the hospital was manageable. Upon discharge, I was given a prescription for Oxycodone. These worked fine so long as I took two. (rx said " 1-2 tablets"). When these were gone, the doctor replaced them with hydrocodone 7.5/325. These just dont work. To get any relief, I have to take extra Tylenol with them, and then I only get relief for about 3 hours, not 6. Is there an alternative pain med I could ask for? I know he is concerned about my getting addicted, but I didn't get addicted in the 9months because I only took the... ...

I pulled my back out two weeks ago. My doctor gave me a shot of decadron (steroid) and Valium. I only took 2.5 mg of Valium twice (I don't like taking things I'm unsure of) and it didn't get better all. If I took the last 2.5 mg 12 hours ago is it safe to take 5 mg of hydrocodone? It doesn't appear to interact with my steroid shot but wanted to be sure. ## Hello, IndianaGuy! How are you? I didn't find any interactions or problems listed between the Decadron and Norco, but you should always double check such information with your doctor or pharmacist. 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 5 500 Tb?
I have ankylosing spondylitis. Got cortisone shots in my lumbar region and hydrocodone/acetaminophen 5-500 tb and Tramadol ER 200mg from my rhuematologist . What is the Tramadol for? & Im starting a new job tomorrow not sure if i should.take either until i know how they may effect me. Should i wait till this weekend to start? ## Hi Wendy, Tramadol is most commonly used for treating moderate to moderately severe pain, but has a wide range of other applications, including treatment for restless leg syndrome, acid reflux, and fibermyosis. If you're starting a new job of any kind, I would probably suggest waiting till you get off work to experiment with how these medications really affect you deep down. This way you can at least be more comfortable going into work knowing whether or... ...

Hydrocodone Acetaminophen 5 500 TB should i take it
I have ankylosing spondylitis. Got cortisone shots in my lumbar region and hydrocodone/acetaminophen 5-500 tb and Tramadol ER 200mg from my rhuematologist . What is the Tramadol for? & Im starting a new job tomorrow not sure if i should.take either until i know how they may effect me. Should i wait till this weekend to start? ## The Tramadol is also an analgesic. Learn more Tramadol details here. And yes, I'd be very reluctant to start them at the same time as starting a new job, just to be on the safe side. I supposed you could try during your off hours, such as at night to see how they affect you, but you should be cautious, especially if you are sensitive to medications. I am and Tramadol caused me to vomit every time I took it, an effect which never wore off, so I had to sto... ...

pain management
I am taking hydrocodone/APAP10 mg8/325mg (8 a day) muscle relaxers, topamax for headaches and prozac after breaking my neck at an accident at work. I had surgery and a metal plate was put in, and I was very lucky. But I still have the pain I am in pain management and have tried shots epidurals ,etc. and they are all short lived. I am grateful I can still walk and be mobile, Is there any chance I might find some relief some time? I feel greedy asking this since my problem is really of so little consequence when others are suffering with really catastrophic illnesses. Thank you Loretta ## Thank you for your help!

Morphine Er Tab 30mg
mfg rho as a pain killer about useless norco works much better cost less that 10/325 of hydrocodone apap tabs by watson labs generic. ## Are you saying the Morphine didn't work for you? It is normal for some people to respond better to one medication, than another. That is why they are usually quite a few options in any medication category. ## That what I,m saying it don't work for me. I got something off the net that works very well called painazol. Not a drug homeopatic I thought I waste my money but it works! Ihave a spine full of arthrtis plus three bad L's.

Is Hydrovcodone 5/acetaminaphin good?
would hydrocodone 5/aceaminophen 500 mg tabs be good for a tension headache? If the bottle is sealed and the expiration date was April 8, 2008 would it probably still be a good pain reliever for a headache? ## Hi Ann, When it comes to drugs and medication I believe it is best to not take any chances with the past expiration date. They may still be ok to take given the sealed bottle, however I am not a pharmacist or MD, so I cannot say if it is safe for you to consume. I would recommend contacting your local pharmacy or doctor to assess if the quality of the drug still remains. If you have any more questions or comments to add, then please post back so I can further assist you. ## As stupid as it sounds I take in some caffeine and a big shot of pickle juice. The pickle juice really works... ...

Which Is Stronger Hydroco Apa 10 325 Or Methodone 5mg
I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and a back injury from my service days. Both cause me a great deal of pain. Recently my doctor replaced my Hydroco/APA 10-325mg tab with Methadone 5mg tab. It seems to work better but I must take the methadone 3 x's a day rather than as needed with the Hydroco. ## The Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen would likely also have worked better if you took it regularly. While it can be taken as needed, all pain medications such as these actually work better for prevention, rather than stopping pain once it has set in. Learn more Methadone details here. Why did he switch your medication? ## My back injury was 40 years ago and no treatment has been effective yet. I have no desire for surgery so vaious shots, nerve burnouts and many pills have been tried. Why the methodone... ...

what are the simularity between Gabapentin and vicodin
what are the simularities between Gabapentin and vicodin ## Sorry Bob, They are not simular at all. read the descriptions. Also, Gaba does not work the same for all people-I am on both. Have a good one. Barbara ## There really aren't any. Gabapentin, a generic for Neurontin is an anticonvulsant that has also been proven to help with certain types of nerve pain. Vicodin contains Accetaminophen and Hydrocodone and is a narcotic pain reliever. Is there anything else I can help you with? ## Is there an interaction between Gabapentin and Doxy Cycl Hycl ? I have had a fusion on my L5 S1 with bone Graf at 3 months of recovery I fell on tile and enjured my back. I have R/A as well and was on Humera shots and now have Bacterial infection. So is it safe to take the two pills? ...

False Positive For Propoxyphene
I'm in pain management. I recently took a pre employment drug test. It came back for Propoxyphene. I take Hydrocodone. I was also stung by yellow jackets 2 days before the test and was given a shot of benadryl at the hospital. I do not take propoxyphene. But it showed up on a 10 panel split test from Medtox. Can anyone tell me why? ## From an outside perspective I can see why Hydrocodone may have been the cause for the false-positive. Reason being is that Propoxyphene is an analgesic in the opioid category; as is Hydrocodone. Unfortunately, the standard tests typically used for screenings lack the sensitivity to distinguish beyond the basic structures of the drug class vs. the drug name. This is where the issue lies. When it comes to Benadryl (Diphenhydramine); this particular drug ... ...

False Positive For Dialudid
I have been tested twice and both times they said I tested positive for Dialudid when I know I didn't take, The only time a doctor even gives it to me is if it is in the E.R. when I have a migraine it had been 4mos. before the the blood test that I had a shot, I do how ever take Norco 10 mg.2-3times a day Soma4 times a day Zonegran 400 mg.Mirapex0.25mg and Verapamil 240mg ## Dilaudid contains the active ingredient Hydromorphine, which is a narcotic opiate and the Norco that you take contains Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone. Learn more Dilaudid details here. Learn more Norco details here. And if the drug test being used is one of the less expensive, non-certified tests, then one narcotic opiate is well known to cause false positives for its relatives. It happens anywhere from 4 to 50% ... ...

Saliva Drug Test/UA test
My Probation Officer knows I take prescription pain meds for severe migraines. I am prescribed vicodin and when break-through pain occurs and I cannot get hold of the neurologist-most often the case-and the pain is severe enough I wind up in the ER...they may give me a shot and a small script to go home on. I have 8 weeks to go before probation is finished....just curious to know if tylenol 3 and vicodin show up on both oral swab tests and urine tests as opiates or if tylenol 3 shows up as codeine and vicodin shows up as an opiate. ## Codeine is also an opiate, just like the Hydrocodone in the Vicodin. Learn more Codeine details here. Learn more Vicodin details here. So, they would both register as such. Have you talked to your neurologist about something for breakthrough pain? ## Yes. ... ...

oxycodone hydrocodone oral test
In 2011, I was diagnosed with nerve and muscle damage, hip dysplasia, degenerative athritis of the cervical spine, fibromyalgia, herniated discs in my back, and lymphomas in my back. I decided to leave the pain clinic and switch to a pcp for my pain management. Now, I was at the pain clinic two years, never failed a test, never ran short, etc. 2013, I'm at my pcp. 16 months on oxycodone 30mg 4x daily. I also take ativan, hydrochlorothaicide (sp? Water pill), nausea meds, vitamin b12 shots, and another nerve medicine, paxil but with a different name. In 16 months here I've never failed a test, and for the first 14 months, never ran out of pills. For two months, I ran out of my pills 2 3 days early due to extensive back pain and pills not lasting as long. I told the Doctor this, a... ...
