10 Mg Zohydro Er Strength Compared To 10 Mg Narco ?

Dallas Says:

Has anyone taken 10 mg hydrocodone tabs 1to 3 tabs at once to help with your pain.

I want to know what I can expect in the strength of 10 mg er once taken . Is it the same as 1 hydro or much stronger ? I have some breathing issues taking 10 mg OxyContin but not with 15 -30 mg. IR 30 mg oxycodone.

The FDA considers oxy and hydro to be morphine equivalents, but some feel oxy is stronger. Zohydro is a 12hr er med. Depending on how often you were taking oxy, to replace a 10mg er dose your doc would probably start you at 15mg or 20mg Zo and adjust from there. A problem with taking three ir norco doses at once is that each dose usually has 325mg of acetaminophen. While many docs feel that up to three grams of acetaminophen a day not a problem, it serves to analgesic purpose for real pain and is a liver toxin in excessive amounts. Check your insurance regarding Zo. It's pricy, but it is the only acetaminophen free option for hydro. Most plans the include it have about a $100 co-pay. Ignore the spooky talk campaign from the competition, the safety and effectiveness of Zohydro has never been in question.

I should have included that Zohydro ER is intended for around the clock pain management, and should not be used on an as needed basis.

Hello, Dallas! How are you?

I just want to clarify that they are not considered Morphine equivalents, both of the mentioned medications are actually stronger than Morphine.

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.

As compared to a Norco, the Zohydro is actually a little weaker, since the Acetaminophen augments the efficacy of the narcotic, plus Norco is released all at one, when you take it, while the Zohydro is time released.

Is there anything else I can help with?
