I take 4 hydrocodone 10/375 a day for neck pain. It is getting filled as norco now. Is there anything else that might not cause so much stomach or intestinal pain and discomfort? I have never had any luck in the past with Darvocet or Percocet.

I am trying to substitute for 10/650 Percocet. When I see my MD soon, I was going to ask for the equivalent Percodan instead ( afraid of liver damage after many years )...will I have problems adjusting and what is Percodan equivalent to (3) 10/650 Percocets day? Also, Is Tramadol the only way to get off this on my own? I hate taking it and have cut dose down over last year very difficult to do. ## do u think hydrocodone 5/325mg is right to be taken witht the patient with AlS? ## Have you tried or heard of Suboxone?

Not that youre addicted.. but generally speaking after years of opioid use, getting off of the med ... ...

Can this be substituted for hydrocodone ? ## Hi, Ace! How are you? No, they are not the same type of medication. Hydrocodone is a narcotic analgesic. Learn more Hydrocodone details here.

Substitute for Lortab 5
Hydrocodone/bit/acet ## I have a strange reaction to Lortab. It will keep me up. I have a very hard time falling asleep when I have taken this drug. One doctor suggested to me it was because of my ADD. Is there another drug that I can ask for would work like Lortab that hopefully wouldn't keep me awake. This is a very frustrating problem for me. ## Yes, narcotics do sometimes cause that in some people and it can even be severe enough that it causes some people to abuse them, because they like that effect. By now, I hope you've already found another medication to use, Angela. If anyone else is seeking similar information, you really should just talk to your doctor about the problem. There are other medications you can try, but you may go through several, before finding one that w... ...

Substitute For Oxycodone 30 Mg
need a pain medication that doesn't have aspirin in it but is effectice i am taking oxycondone ## You can always talk to your doctor about prescribing generic Oxycodone as apposed to Percocet (Acetaminophen + Oxycodone). Aside from that option, generic Hydrocodone is a common substitute for Oxycodone. There is a decrease in potency however, so if you are on a high dose of Oxycodone you may want to taper that dose down a little and start with a slightly higher dose of Hydrocodone. More details about Hydrocodone and Oxycodone can be found by clicking on the links below: I hope this helps! ## Hello, I have been prescribed oxycodone 30mg tablets for my chronic low back pain due to a condition and I also suffer from arthritis but lately I'm having a problem getting it filled.

loritab substitute
I can't find my prescription anywhere due to the new law , I was sounder ehat I could take instead of my hydrocodone/acetaminophen.. ## Hi Anthony, Sorry to hear about your situation. However, there are a number of different options on the market if you were to look for an alternative pain medication to Lortab (hydrocodone + acetaminophen); even if you were to just opt for another brand name or generic of the same medication. But just to name a few that you could ask your doctor about, there are: Percocet (oxycodone + acetaminophen) Percodan/Endodan (oxycodone + aspirin) Norco (hydrocodone + acetaminophen) Vicoprofen/Reprexain/Ibudone (hydrocodone + ibuprofen) Please also note that changing medications may not necessarily make it any easier to fill, especially if they are of the sam... ...

Substitute Tramadol For Hydroco Mg
RAN OUT OF HYDROCOAPAP TAB 10-325MG, BUT HAVE TRAMADOL 50 MG, CAN I SUBSTITUTE?? ## Have you consulted your doctor? The Hydrocodone is a potent narcotic and the Tramadol is very mild, though it is distantly related, so you aren't likely to get the same effective pain relief that you do from the Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen tablet. ## If you are worried about your withdrawls, then yes you can. The max dose in 24 hours is 400mg. That's 8 pills. I did the same thing and took 200mg in the morning and 150 at night just to be safe. It will hold back the withdrawls and you will sleep comfortably. However, because its not an opiate, they will not "F" you up. You will not get HIGH from these. They do however trap seratonin for longer periods of time in your brain which for most peop... ...

hydrocodone/apap 7.5-500mg/15ml
My doctor prescribed the liquid hydrocodone/APA 7.5-500mg/15ml to me for pain. The pharmacy label says to take 1 TEASPOON every 6 hours. This seems unusual given that this dosage seems to be most often given in 15ml doses as opposed to the 5ml in a teaspoon. I took it as the label recommended and honestly can't tell a bit of difference. Is it possible that the pharmacy mislabeled? Based on what I have read, I should be safe to 15ml at a time, right? I sure would like to take the full dose tonight so I can finally get some rest. ## What does the pharmacy list for the dosing amounts in the 5ml? Did you check to see if they substituted? They sometimes do that if they don't have the dosing form that your doctor prescribed in stock. Have you called the pharmacy to ask? If they just m... ...

what is the best substitute for lortab 10 500 mg
What is the best replacement drug for Lortab 10/500 mg? 20 year user through a pain management clinic ## Hello, John! How are you? Did you doctor offer you any alternative, now that these are no longer available? You can still get pills with Hydrocodone in them, but the Acetaminophen is only 325mgs. 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. There's really no way to know what other medication may work well for you. What others have you tried? ...

hydrocodone 10 325 - Works well for me - Having trouble with Doctors prescribing it now.
I have been on different dosages of Norco/Vicodin for about 5 years, since I recovered from a serious illness. Over time, my doctors and I have tried an enormous amount of different combinations of drugs to relieve the chronic pain along with the other symptoms. I finally found a combination that works for me, however I'm having difficulty with doctors prescribing the hydrocodone acetaminophen 10-325. Is this because of the rise in illegal sales of the drug? I used to be on 4 a day and now with the Lyrica and low dose Voltaren, 2 a day works excellent. I haven't been this productive, or felt even remotely useful for so long. Are there any substitutes equivalent to the Norco, or even close that doctors aren't so hesitant to prescribe? ## Hello, Jo! How are you? Yes, new regul... ...

hydrocodone acetaminophen 5 500 being discontinued
Do you know what they will substitute the hydrocodone whith ## Hi Rhonda, They're not actually discontinuing this medication. All they are really doing is lessening the amount of Acetaminophen in their products. It started sometime earlier this year, but all manufacturers have to abide by this new law which only allows up to 325 mgs of Acetaminophen. This is primarily due to safety concerns with liver toxicity. Some pain management patients suggest taking an extra Tylenol to make up for it. However I wouldn't necessarily recommend more of something that is considered to be so toxic. Perhaps steering more in the direction of natural alternatives would be a good choice if you're seeking additional relief with less side effects. I hope this helps! ## Thank you so much for your ... ...

All the Walgreens & every other pharmacy around here are out. They said they use a different distributor.

Wondering if MD has used an appropiate substitution or not. I also take a full dosing of NSAIDS. ## Which one was substituted for the other? I'm not quite understanding from the title of your post. And the most operative question is really....how is the change working for you?

which is more potent hydrocodone acetaminophen 5 325 or cod 3 300 30mg
which is more potent hydrocodone-acetaminophen (5-325) or Acetaminophen/cod 3 (300/30mg)? ## Milligram for milligram, hydrocodone is reported to be significantly more potent than codeine. So even with the difference in milligrams I'm going to have to assume that the generic norco you have may be more potent from what I've read online. While everyone's experience may be different, I have also seen comments from patients who've tried both and feel that "10mgs" of hydrocodone far exceeds the potency of "60mgs" of codeine. Though that may not be as accurate for someone else with a different tolerance, it does go to show that hydrocodone is superior and probably shouldn't ever be substituted for codeine in that sense. Is your doctor recommending that you t... ...

White oblong pill A 333 with no split line on it received from CVS as Percocet substitute
Wife had prescription for Percocet which was substituted by CVS with a small white oblong pill with A 333 on one side and no identification and no "line" for breaking in two on the other side, but identified on bottle and circular as "10-325". After root canal, pill has been relatively ineffective only overriding pain for about an hour and caused nausea and vomiting when second pill taken 4 very long hours later. After a day of suffering, switched to hydrocodone 7.5-300 at 10am when ineffectiveness of 6am oxycodone 10-325 on second day had wife in tears again. Potency of year old hydrocodone 7.5-300 superior to new oxycodone 10-325. Lack of a line for splitting in two a curious omission since there is a 5-325 dosage available.

tussigon for licking
For some reason my Vet placed my aussie on tussigon for lick granuloma? I see no point in this medication. He's still licking it and its not cheap! Anyone know why he would be on this? Other than it makes him sleepy ## Hello, Dehner! How are you? It is believed that this condition is sometimes caused by psychogenic factors, such as the dog being left alone for much of the day, being confined or sudden household changes that are putting them under stress. The Hydrocodone that is in Tussigon can substitute for Endorphin and decrease the urge to lick that they feel due to the stress. Is there anything else I can help with? ...
