is percocet stronger than hydrocodone
5 Replies RSS
I take Lortab 10's, Fentanyl 100mg patch every 3 days and Ibuprofen. I stay in constant pain and wanted to know what I could switch to that would be stronger and help with my constant pain. I've been on all 3 medicines and alot of other medicine (not pain medicine) for over 3yrs. ## Yes, it only takes 6.67mgs of Oxycodone to equal each 10mgs of Hydrocodone, so the Percocet would be stronger. Learn more Percocet details here. Oxycodone is also available by itself, without the Acetaminophen, in a regular release formulation, so you also may want to ask your doctor about that. It is another narcotic opiate, so it also has the potential to be habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can he... ...

hydrochodone addiction

i have been addicted to hydrochodone 10mg, approx. 12-15/day for the last 5 yrs. do you think that suboxome is a good choice to use to kick this habit? ## My husband was addicted to hydrochodone for 11 years. He went on suboxone and was a new man for about 3 months until he decided he wanted to get off it and back on hydrochodone. There was no protocol to get off suboxone. He called the company that made it and they couldn't tell him anything. He got off it anyway and is now back on hydro with a vengeance, and we are separating. It works if you want to stay with it and go to a program for support!!!!! ## Suboxone has helped many people become completely drug free and beat their opiate addictions. Judi, there just isn't a protocol for going off it by YOURSELF and they sure aren&#... ...

sever back pai i have had it for 8 years i have three girls and i;m oh disabilty ## this is the strongest dose of a narcotic known as lortab, vicodin, and lorcet (all name brands.) they are extremely addictive as they are opiate narcotics. it is usually prescribed at the dose you have for moderate to severe pain. one has to be careful not to take too much or more than prescribed because it has a lot of acetaminophen or tylenol in it. too much can definantly cause irreversible liver damage. ## If you have chronic, severe pain, you should really be on a time release pain killer such as Oxycontin or MS Contin. The ones you are on are instant release pills which don't last more than 4 to 6 hours and in your case they should really only be used for breakthrough pain. ...

155 white round pill opiate blocker
2 Replies RSS
do I swallow the pill or do I take it in pieces or do I let it dissolve in my mouth please someone answer I really need it asap ## Just to confirm, a white round pill imprinted with "155" and a "half moon logo" is identified as generic Suboxone, containing: Buprenorphine hydrochloride 8 mg (base) + Naloxone hydrochloride 2 mg (base); This medication is used in the treatment of opioid dependence. From what I understand, it's supposed to work best when taken sublingually; where all you have to do is let it fully dissolve under your tongue in order for your body to absorb it. It would be a good idea to contact your Dr. though if you have any other questions related to how much you should take. I hope this helps! ## Dear Destiny, David is correct. The suboxone needs 2 b ... ...

MALE 210LBS TAKES WHATEVER WHENEVER BUT IS TAKING 16 Pills In 24 Hours Bad Hydrocodone 10mg 325mg...WHATS BOUND TO HAPPEN...WHAT IF HE TAKES OXYCODONE 15MG ALSO ## Hello, From what I am seeing, daily consumption of hydrocodone should not exceed 40 milligrams in patients not tolerant to opiates. The PDR from 2006 states that Norco 10, containing 10 milligrams of hydrocodone and 325 mg of APAP (Acetaminophen) can be taken at a dosage of up to twelve tablets per day (120 mg of hydrocodone). This restriction is only limited by the fact that twelve tablets, each containing 325 mg of APAP (Acetaminophen), puts the patient right below the 24-hour FDA maximum of 4,000 mg of APAP. Some specially compounded products are routinely given to chronic pain patients in doses of up to 180 mg of hydrocod... ...

Hydrocodone 10 V325
1 Reply RSS
What is stronger and how do these 2 drugs compare.....10/325 hydrocodone vs. tramadol 50 mg ## You really can't compare them, since they aren't in the same drug classes. The Hydrocodone in the Vicodin/Lortab is a potent narcotic analgesic. But the Tramadol is just a centrally acting analgesic, though it is derived from an opiate, it is nowhere near as strong and effective as the opiate narcotic class. Both can be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. You can learn more Vicodin details here and you can learn more Tramadol details here. Which one has been prescribed for you? ...

How are you? They are different medications. Percocet contains Oxycodone with Acetaminophen, while what you've currently been prescribed contains Hydrocodone with Acetaminophen. However, dizziness, nausea and vomiting can be side effects of all narcotic opiates, so you may still experience such symptoms with this one, as well. There is also a... ...

hydrocodone itching
1 Reply RSS
I seem to have a very smart Doctor. He prescribed Norco 10-325 for post surgical pain. The first bottle gave me nothing but relief. The refill, at a different pharmacy, caused unbelievable itching all over and down my throat. I called and told him he had me look up the mfgr on the bottle. It was Qua. He said my problem is the dye used in the second batch. He re prescribed to the original pharmacy and got the Norco manufactured by Watson. If you are taking an opiate that is making you itch, have your doctor re prescribe from a pharmacy that uses the pill made by a different mfgr. You are probably not allergic to opiates or Codiene after all. ## Hello, Charliemike! How are you? I am very sorry about the problem that you experienced. However, I would like to clarify that while this may be ... ...

Dangerous Cocktail: Neurontin and Opiates
4 Replies RSS
One of the contraindications while taking Neurontin is using opiates such as Hydrocodone (Vicodin) and Oyxcodone (Percocet). The opiates potentiate the effect of Neurotin by 14%. With Morphine, it increases the effect of Neurotin by 44%. My husband was on Neurontin at 900 mg a day (taken in three doses). At that time, he was not taking much of his pain killer, Oxycodone (Percocet), maybe one 5mg dose a night. My husband was originally took Neurotin for shingles nerve pain. His doctor decided to increase his dose of Neurontin to 1800 mg per day (three equal doses). Before that time, my husband increased his Oxycodone to two 5mg tablets before bedtime and another 5mg tablet about four hours later. Upon the increase in Neurontin, my husband started to experience some adverse effects. These... ...

I am taking a 80 mg a day of hydrocodone / Acetaminophen and trying lower down to 40 mg a day to 20 mg a day then 10 mg a day, and 10 every 24 hours without having to have extreme opiate withdrawals, please tell me if I can use fioricet for opiate withdrawals. what do need to know. ## Hello, Will363! How are you? If you're doing a slow taper, your withdrawals should be minimal. How long have you been taking it? How fast of a taper are you doing? It takes at least a week, between each dosage drop, for your body to adjust. 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. And no, there is really nothing in the Fioricet to help. ...

Naproxen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug You can learn more about this drug on the page for Naproxen Details Vicodin (Acetaminophen + Hydrocodone) on the other hand, is a combination of two types of pain medicine; Hydrocodone being an opiate narcotic pain reliever and Acetaminophen also being a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug.

Using Suboxone To Get Off And Stay Off Opiates
5 Replies RSS
I was prescribed opiate painkillers for 5 years. I gradually became totally addicted to the point that while these drugs ( Hydrocodone, Oxycodone, Oxycontin and others) worked well for their intended purpose, the 'good feeling" they gave me became the focal point of my life. The unavoidable physical and psychological dependence eventually led to serious and harmful consequences- damaged or ruined relationships (divorce in my case) with people who were now less important than the drugs. Responsibilities and interests I had fell by the wayside. Although I have a legitimate need for pain relief due to nerve damage caused by disease, the doctor saw that I was abusing the drugs- taking too much and using them to get high- and cut me off. The withdrawal symptoms were horrific. I went ... ...

Will taking these get someone high I have a child I want to aware so i can make sure to keep them hidden ## This is a generic for Vicodin that contains 7.5mgs of Hydrocodone and 500mgs of Acetaminophen.

And for anyone who may be looking for an identification of this tablet at a later date, I just want to add a note to alert them to the fact that the amount of Acetaminophen in all of these will be changing, via a request from the FDA.

L374 oblong white is generic Excedrin, don't understand why everyone has problems looking up drugs.

Taking Hydrocodone for Depression
130 Replies RSS
I am wondering if anybody else out there has taken Hydrocodone and noticed that symptoms of depression are alleviated? I find that many of today's anti-anxiety and antidepressant drugs come with unpleasant side effects, whereas while taking Hydrocodone they aren't there. The caveat to all of this is that yes, I know that Hydrocodone and opiates in general can be addictive. So long term use would result in withdrawal symptoms. I'm just wondering who else might agree with my on this? ## I have taken dozens of antidepressants as well as been prescribed antipsycotics and other meds for off-label usage, and nothing has worked effectively over the past 15 years. I will take hydrocodone for a chronic pain condition, and, YES, oh my goodness, YES, it seems to make me immune to a dep... ...
