Is Tylenol 3 The Same As Hydrocodone
Cause I was reading sum stuff and its the same to me if u agree please tell ## Based on my research, Tylenol 3 is composed of two analgesic or pain-relieving drugs: Acetaminophen + Codeine. But "NOT" Hydrocodone. Hydrocodone is alot like codeine, except that codeine is said to be a natural derivative of opium plants whilst hydrocodone is synthetic. Hydrocodone is also proven to be much stronger. I hope this helps to answer your question! ...

Tylenol 3 Hydrocodone
Is hudrocodone the same or contain the same ingredients/drugs as tylenol 3 with codien? ## From what I could gather, Tylenol 3 is composed of two analgesic or pain-relieving drugs: acetaminophen + codeine. Inactive ingredients complete the composition of this medication. So to better answer your question, hydrocodone is not the same, nor is it even contained in this medication. You might be thinking of norco or lortab, which contain a similar combination of acetaminophen + hydrocodone. Both medications are used for pain relief, but I'd consider hydrocodone to be much more potent than codeine from my own experience. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Acetaminophen + Codeine Details I hope this info helps! ...

Is Tylenol 3 the same as a lortab?
I would like to know if Tylenol 3 and Lortab are in the same family. ## Hello, James! How are you? They are both narcotics, but they don't contain the same active ingredients. Tylenol 3 contains Acetaminophen and Codeine, so it's a rather mild narcotic analgesic, but Lortab contains Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone, so it's much stronger. 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 5500
are Lortabs still in use? My pharmicist said they were no longer made. ## The FDA has asked dr to no longer prescribe it with 500 mg acetaminophen but instead to use the mandated reduced 325 mg acetaminophen. The FDA has also asked pharmacists to contact the drs if a rx is written for the 500 mg before filling it. The hydrocodone and acetaminophen (Lortab, Vicodin, Norco) are still made. But, the amount of acetaminophen has been reduced. ## So can you take a Tylenol to get the same results since they lowered it to 325? I'm so used to the 500 and it just isn't the same ## Talk to your dr first. The new recommendation from the FDA is not to exceed 3,000 mg of tylenol in a 24 hr period. ## It isn't that the FDA has asked them to no longer prescribe the higher amounts, they'... ...

Can you tell me what the pill looks like? ## Hi Kim, From what I could gather, most of the 5/325mg Acetaminophen + Hydrocodone Bitartrate tablets are white and capsule (oblong) shaped. Some of the imprints on these pills are: IP 109, M365, 3202 WATSON, and 3604 V. There may be more though. Did you have any specific questions or concerns regarding this medication? Please post back if you do. ## Are the V3604. The same as M365? ## my daughter has von wilebrand disease, can she take this for pain? tylenol does nothing for her ...

what is stronger hydrocodone 10 750 or 325
I have leg and back pain were I can't even walk or even lay down which hydrocodone is best for me!? ## Dear Barbara, the only difference is the amount of Tylenol in them. The 325 have less Tylenol than the 750. Some Drs. Will give the 325 b cause 2 much Tylenol can cause liver problems. p.s. Tylenol is same name 4 acetaminophen. ## Hello, Barbara! How are you? Actually, you have no choice but to go with the one that contains 325mgs of Acetaminophen, because the others are no longer available, they were all removed from the market as of the 1st of the year. 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? ...

what is stronger hydrocodone 7 5 750 or 10 325
I was on hydrocodone 7.5 -750 now they said they dont make it no more and gave me 7.5 -325 which is stronger. I have a bad back and just got the new ones today the 7.5-325. which one of the to is stronger for me to use or should I call my Doctor. ## Hello, Gregory! How are you? That is correct, the ones with the higher amount of Acetaminophen in them are no longer available. If you were taking 7.5/750 and now have 10/325 they are pretty close to being equivalent, but you should consult your doctor to be certain. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Dear Gregory, the only difference is the amount of acetaminophen (Tylenol) in them. The strength is still the same, but, has less Tylenol . So, the 325 has less Tylenol than the 750. ...

i have been taking hydrocodone 10 and my doctor just changed me to acetaminophen cod3 are they the same that is what was told by
I have been taking Hydrocodone10 since March for RSD the doctor changed me this week to Acetaminophen/cod3 The doctor said that the law made it where he can not give the hydrocodone any more . I want to know if they are the same I was told they are the same. I scared to take because I have sleep apna and a real sensitivity to codone. I get breathing problems and rashes. Not sure what to do at this point. can not take most opids drugs. ## Hydrocodone is an opiate. Tylenol #3 has 30 mg Codiene and 325 mg Tylenol. Tylenol # 3 is not as strong as hydrocodone. Your dr can still write rxs for hydrocodone if he is writting you a rx for Tylenol #3. But, a lot of drs are switching their patients from hydrocodone to tylenol #3 because hydrocodone combination meds became a Schedule II med Monday. ... ...

how strong is hydrocodone acetaminophen 5 325
Which is easier on body? Tylenol 3 or hydroco/acetaminop 5-325 ## Hello, Hunter! How are you? Since they both contain Acetaminophen, neither is really any easier on the body, they both carry the same risks of possibly causing liver damage. As to pain relief, the Hydrocodone is far more potent and effective than the Codeine in the Tylenol 3. 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.

qualitest hydrocodone 10 500
i have a severe back problem and go to a pain clinic for pain management. I use Qualitest Hydrocodone 10/500 (pink) for years for break through pain. I know they had to go to 10/325 but what I want to know is do they make the exact same pill except for the acetominaphen part. I have tried the white and I have tried the 10/500 Watson which is not blue but white and they just don't work. I just want the same makeup as the Qualitest that I have taken for years and even if the 2nd part is cut down I could add back a tylenol to it to get that 2nd part. I am not afraid of it I just need some pain relief and the pink ones did it for me and neither white or Watson white, they just don't work. Please help me and lead me in the right direction ## Hello, Louise! How are you? No, I'm so... ...

10mg hydrocodone white oblong
L484 white oblong. I may have mixed up Tylenol and hydrocodone in the same bottle ## Hi, Kathy! How are you? The tablet with the L 484 marking contains 500mgs of Acetaminophen, so it's a generic or store brand of Extra Strength Tylenol. Learn more Acetaminophen details here. In the future, it would probably be best to leave them in their appropriate bottles, to avoid possibly dangerous mix-ups. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

hydrocodone acetaminophen 10 325 mg
I've been approximately 10 years on hydrocodone acetaminophen 10-500. It now has been changed to Hydrocodone-acetaminophen 10-325 without any consultation. What would be the reason for the change and will it attack the pain the same? Thank you. Todd ## All prescription tylenol combinations medications had to reduce the amount of tylenol to no more than 325 mg in Jan 2014. The FDA has even taken action to withdraw the approval for prescription meds that have more than 325 mg tylenol. The decrease in tylenol may or may not make any difference to you. Some drs are telling their patients to add 1 regular strength tylenol to the prescription meds, if they need it. Just be sure to keep track of how much tylenol you take in a 24 hrs period and don't let it exceed 4,000 mg in a 24 hr pe... ...

Hydrocodone Apap 5 325 iNGRIEDIENTS
Does Hydrocodone Apap 5 325 contain sulfate of any kind? I am allergic to Sulpha Drugs. Thank you, Diane Ross ## The active ingredients Hydrocodone and Acetaminophen aren't sulfa based, however, without knowing the specific manufacturer, I can't tell you anything about the inactive ingredients.

I have a right below the knee amputation due to a land mine that happened in 1968, have never needed pain meds up until 2 to 3 years ago at which time my doc prescribed hydroc/apap 10-650 mg--formerly lortab.Now it has been changed to the same thing only in a 10-325 mg which from what I have been told was due to a change in the law Jan 2014-the 10-650 did a fair job if I oook one every 4 hrs of course the 10-325 do not seem to help very much, have about a 8 out of ten on the pain chart. My wife was given Oxycod/ap 5-325 when she had Cancer surgery, I have taken some of the leftovers and can go 8 to 10 hrs without much pain at all. Can you tell me if they still made this or something equal to it or even the 10-650 lortab that is easily avaviable? Thanks!!1 ## The tylenol in all prescript... ...

is vicodin 750mg and methocarbamol 750mg are they used for the same reasons ## Methocarbamol (Brand Name Robaxin) is a muscle relaxer. Vicodin is for pain. It has 7.5 mgs hydrocodone & tylenol ## HI, Amy! How are you? Vicodin contains Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone, so it's a narcotic pain reliever. Thus it has the potential to be habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, constipation and drowsiness. Learn more Vicodin details here. However, Methocarbamol is a muscle relaxant that's used to treat the pain associated with muscle sprains, strains and spasms. Its side effects may include nausea, headache, dry mouth and drowsiness.

My doctor switched me from Norco 10/325 pills to liquid 2.5mg/5ml is this the same amount of NORCO?
My doctor switched me from 1-2 tabs of norco 10/325 every 4-6 hours to 20- 40 ml of liquid 2.5mg/5ml every 4-6 hours - is it the same amount of norco? I know it has more tylenol in it but am I getting the same dosage of the norco? ## Well, first allow me to explain that Norco is a brand name for a medication that contains Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone, it is not actually the name of the narcotic ingredient you are asking about. That said, if it contains 2.5mgs of the Hydrodocone per 5ml, then 20mls would contain 10mgs, this would be equal to the amount in one of the tablets you used to take. That would also mean that if you use 40mls, you'd be taking 20mgs of Hydrocodone, or equal to 2 of the tablets that you used to take. The main differece though, between a liquid and a tablet is ... ...
