hydrocodone acetaminophen 5 500 dosage
2 Replies RSS
I was prescribed this medicine and it says for severe pain, is 5 mg the Lowest amount you can get or is it higher than 7.25? ## It comes in hydrocodone 5mgs, 7.5 mgs and 10 mgs. There is 500 mgs of tylenol in it. The 5 mg is the lowest dose in pill form ## Hydrocodone, which is the generic for Vicoden, is what I was prescribed after Percocet didn't give me much relief. I then was switched to Roxycodone, because I have elevated liver levels in my blood work, and the Tylenol can worsen that. I am now prescribed 30 mgs. of Roxycodone three times a day. Whether it be Percoset, Vicoden, or Oxycodone or Roxycodone and going up to more powerful pain medications, they are all so very addictive. My suggestion for everyone that is given a prescription for any of these is to try your hardest t... ...

hydrocodone acetaminophen norco 10 325 mg Is it harmful?
6 Replies RSS
Saw a new ortho surgeon. Was taking Hydrocodone/Acetamenaphine 10-325. For lower back pain. He said "oh no, Don't take that!" and presribed Tramadol 50 mg. Why? ## Because it can be highly addictive. Also it is going to go from a Schedule III to a Schedule II, Oct 6, 2014. That means no refills, it can't be called in and you must see your dr at least every 90 days. Even though Tramadol can also be addicting, the risk isn't as great. Tramadol became a Schedule IV Aug 18, 2014. ## Hello, Pete! How are you? Your doctor may also be concerned about the Acetaminophen, taking it for a long time creates the risk of liver damage or failure. These medications carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, 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... ...

WHITE OBLONG WITH THE LETTER V ON ONE SIDE AND THE NUMBERS 3536 ON THE OTHER ## Is there a possibility that it says 3596 instead of 3536?

It is highly addictive and can cause constipation, lightheadedness, marked drowsiness, euphoria. If the tablet really says 3536 then I am unable to find it at this time. ...

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. ...

pink oval v 3600 ## It hurts to pee, getting a burning sensation. I took two, they were pink OUCH! ## This tablet contains 500mgs of Acetaminophen and 10mgs of Hydrocodone. This is a very strong, narcotic pain reliever, with high addictive potential. Taking two of these at once is NOT SAFE. As to the burning when you urinate is possibly a urinary infection and this does not contain an antibiotic, so it will not help to get rid of it. I suggest you see a doctor. ...

what is the difference between hydrocodon 5-325 and hydocodone 5-500? also should I take both or just 1 every 4 hrs as prescribed. ## The difference between the two is that the the first one you mentioned contains 5mgs of Hydrocodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen and the second contains 5mgs of Hydrocodone, with 500mgs of Acetaminophen. The name brand for this would be Vicodin. The Hydrocodone is a narcotic, which can be addictive. and coupled with the Acetaminophen, which can be toxic if you take too much in a day, you should only take the amount you have been prescribed. This medication may also cause side effects, such as: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and dry mouth.

I had shoulder surgery and after 3 1/2 weeks I'm still having horrible pain. Dr prescribed diclofenac sod 75 mg twice a day. He had previously given me a prescription for hydrocodone/APAP 5-500 mg which I haven't been taking. However, my pain has gotten unbearable. Can I take both of them together? ## Hello, Based on my research there are no drug interactions found between Hydrocodone APAP (Hydrocodone + Acetaminophen) and Diclofenac sodium. This does not necessarily mean no interactions exist, but my sources state that every effort has been made to ensure that the information provided is accurate. It may be wise to speak with your doctor before combining these medications, just to be safe. Also, please be careful with the Hydrocodone APAP, Hydrocodone can be quite addictive. Ar... ...

Hydrocodone and rescheduling
5 Replies RSS
Rescheduling hydrocodone/APAP combos to CII seems to have mixed results. I believe that it was the ignorance of the use of liver damage with exceeding 4,000.mg of acetaminophen and not necessarily the abuse opioid factors. Your thoughts. ## Prescription meds containing Tylenol, where limited to a max of 325 mg of tylenol effective Jan 2014. Rescheduling hydrocodone combination meds became effective Oct 6 2014. There is no connection because drugs are scheduled according to their risk for abuse and addiction. ## Continuing thoughts on the previous post: The way they schedule drugs "according to risk for abuse/addiction" should in my opinion, be reconsidered on many accounts. 1st being that addictive behavior only stems from those individuals who are not disciplined in their decis... ...

What is the limit for a single dose for a 170 lb person? I hear this drug can be dangerous and I want to make sure my son is taking it correctly for his surgery recovery. ## The hydrocodone will not harm him even if he took 8 per day but the acetaminophen cannot be more than 4000 mg a day. And as you can see 325times 8 is not even close .so I hope he does well in his recovery.God bless Rocket666. ## However, regardless of safe limits overall, they should only be taken according to his doctor's prescribing instructions. This medication does carry the risk of being habit forming and addictive. It may also cause side effects likes nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, constipation and drowsiness. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

Hydroco Acetamin 5 500mg Or Hydroc 10 Mg Which Is Stronger
2 Replies RSS
which is stronger hydroco/acetamin 5-500 or Hydroco 10-500mg? Is it the same as Vicadin? I have a large tear in my rotator cuff. I just was given the 5-500mg. They told me it was Vicadin at the doctors office. I already had a bottle mostly untouched of the 10-55 because a doctor seemed worried that it was addictive and gave me tramadol which I can't say touches the pain. ## The one with the higher amount of the Hydrocodone is stronger, since it is the narcotic and the Acetminophen just helps it to work better. Both are generics for Vicodin, Norco or Lortab. You can learn more Vicodin details here. Another note that needs to be added here is that as of 2013, the FDA has made a request that all manufacturers lower the amount of Acetaminophen in these combination prescription products ... ...
