take one pill every 12 hours what does it mean

What does it mean "take 1 tablet by mouth every 8 hours × 2 days" should i only take it for 2 days or every 2 days?? ## Hello, Miri! How are you? According to the FDA prescription writing information, that would be taking one every 8 hours for 2 days. Which medication is it? Perhaps I can provide you with more information on it, if you post back and clarify! ## Take hydrocodone every 12 hours as needed for pain - how many pills should be prescribed? ## What does it mean to take 2 tablets every four hours? My doctor prescribed me some sinuend tablets to take 2 every 4 hours. How many must I take in a day? ## However many they want. When my friend broke her ankle they gave her 3 days worth.

Pain Management Doctors In Arkansas Who Have Own Office That Takes Medicaid

I have taken methadone for about 9 yrs. and other pain medicines before that. I have chronic pain post polio syndrome, Degenerative arthritis, Degenerative disc. in back due to severe Scoliosis. New laws passed , so my Doctor stopped doing pain management, not sure why. The pain management clinics are expensive and they do not take medicaid. I need a Doctor for pain management that can prescribe pain medication, but who takes medicaid patients. The Disable and poor are out of luck now. Need Doctor from south Arkansas ## I'm sorry, but even for any listings I find in your area, I have no way of knowing what types of insurance they accept. Have you tried asking your doctor for a referral somewhere else? Have you tried contacting your local Medicaid office to see if they have a list of...

the number on the tab hydroco/apap5-500mg

what is the number on the pill. It is white oval with a indentation across it in the middle. It is quite lage ## how old can the drug Hydroco/apap5-500mg be to be effective? The tab number is m357 ## I was just prescribed this drug yesterday....it has the same # on it - M357, if that means anything. ## As to the markings on them, that can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, and according to dosage. The tablets listed with the M 357 marking contained 5mgs of Hydrocodone, and 500mgs of Acetaminophen, but this dosage is no longer available, the FDA now allows no more than 325mgs of Acetaminophen per dose in combination prescription medications. The FDA warns that Hydrocodone carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, consti...

pain doctors sd

I live in Sioux Falls SD and I am trying to find a doctor that will prescribe pain meds. I had a pain management doctor that prescribed 4 10 mg hydrocodones a day, but moved to Nevada. Now I have moved back and she is full and can’t see me. I have arthritis, spinal stenosis, fibromyalgia, degenerative disc disorder and a spinal fusion. My doctor keeps sending me in for epidurals for my lower back, and they sometimes work for two or three months, but it doesn’t help with the pain every where else. I work 10 hour days and barely make it through. Thinking about filling for disability, but I know it’s a long road. ## Very few, if any, people will recommend pain Doctors because that will normally cause too many people to come to them. The Doctor may think that they have bee...

Watson hydrocodone pills - Which pharmacy carries them?

I live in northern ky and walgreens quit carrying watson brand and their new brand makes my whole body hurt. I want to find what pharmacies carry watson? ## I am also looking for the Watson 10/325. All the Walgreens & every other pharmacy around here are out. They said they use a different distributor. If they order them they still can't guarantee that they will get the Watson brand since it all comes from the same warehouse or company. I can't take the substitute brand that everyone is using, it make me so sick & my body just aches from them. I live in Phx,Az. If you know a place that carries Watson Brand please let me know. I can't believe that an entire city of this size can be completely out. ## Yes Watsons are good usually small family pharmacies still carry the...

2172 hydrocodone sick

Been on this for years and again these 2172 are not the same. They must differ in someplace. I get nauseous from them. After taking them almost 20 years there has to be something off here or I wouldn't feel this way. I can take a 10/660 Watson be fine and take a 5/325 2172 and within 30 min I want to vomit! ## Well, you are mentioning 2 different dosages, the pill with the 2172 marking contains 5mgs of Hydrocodone, and 325mgs of Acetaminophen, it is distributed by Major Pharmaceuticals. NDC: 00904-6567 So, if you are used to taking a higher dose, such as the other you've mentioned, then you may be experiencing some withdrawal effects, which may include nausea, headache, vomiting, rebound pain, and sedation, according to FDA reports. Was your dosage supposed to be changed?

Hydrocodone 10/325 new pill color white instead of yellow

My pill for hydrocodone 10/325. Is white, oblong and had 3601*v imprinted on it. Just got it from Walmart. Is this the correct pill? I am used to taking the yellow oblong. ## Yeah I got mine today and to my surprise they were white not yellow but very similar except for the white is V 3609 and the yellow is V 3601. I was dissapointed because I hate the white ones no matter what brand. I hope they don't stopped making the yellow like watson did. Now they serve u watson 853 in white! ## Many people here on MedsChat are saying the same thing about these V 3609 white pills being less effective. I think Post #1 is right about the white ones lacking efficacy all across the board from one manufacturer to the next. I've noticed a growing trend in action - Actavis's generic norco for...

I Have Been On The Same Pain Medication For About 3 Years How Do Ask My Doctor That Think Its Time To Change Medications

I have been on the same medication for 3 years how do i go about asking my dr to change my medications. How do i explain to him that they no longer releave me pain any longer ? ## Just talk to them about it, your doctor should be well aware that the same dosage and/or same medication doesn't work for anyone forever and they will require a dosage adjustment, or switch to a different medication sooner or later. You're actually very fortunate that it worked for you for 3 years. What medication where you taking? ## wasnt aware thanks for info ## Hi Dianabrn! As Dr. Verwon said," just have a talk with your doctor." I'm sure he/she will understand. I was in the same situation as you when I was on pain meds. Your body also builds up a tolerance to the medication when taken ...

why do 10/650 Loracets seem stronger than 10/500 Loratabs

if the 10 mgs of hydrocodone(loracets) are the same as any other pain relievers containing 10 mgs of hydrocodone (ex: narco, loratab....) why do the 10 mg loracets seem to work twice as good as the others. ## Because the different amount of Acetaminophen plays a role, it basically enhances the effects of the narcotic, so it works better. However, they do have to limit the amount of Acetaminophen that is used, because if a person takes too much of it in a day, it can be severely toxic. Thus, these amounts have been carefully formulated to provide safety and efficacy. Are there any other questions or comments? ## not experienced in this field. I always used loracet. from what I understand Lortab is hydrocodone bitartrate and lortab is the same with 5 grain aspirin (~350mg acetaminophen). ...

Taking Hydrocodone for Depression

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 me 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...

Ardosons: are they illegal?

A Dr prescribed this to my husband in Mexico for a hip pain that he's been having, but he's been working for a year at a company that gives drug panels. He had a prescription given to him here which is hydrocodone. Will he have any issues with his employer? ## Hello, Mar! How are you? No, Ardosons doesn't contain anything he'd need to worry about. The FDA lists the active ingredients as including Indomethacin, Betamethasone and Methocarbamol, which in order are a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, a steroid and a muscle relaxant. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding, weight gain, acne and drowsiness. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Will I fail a drug panel (hair follicle or a U/A) while taking Ardos...

I Have A Prescription For Hydrocodone And Been Taking It As Prescribed But Recently Took Urine Test Which Came Back Positive

I have a prescription for Hydrocodone and have been taking it as prescribed. Recently I took a urine test which came back positive for not only Hydrocodone, but Oxycodone as well. I have only taken what has been prescribed to me, and do not take anything else. I do not know how Oxycodone showed up in this test. Any information, thoughts, theories would be greatly appriciated. ## Hydrocodone is a semi-synthetic opiate and, as such, has been known to cause false positives for other opiates, as well. Since Oxycodone is also a semi-synthetic opiate, they are very closely related and it's highly possible that one could show up as the other, or both on urine drug tests. Are there any other questions or comments? ## I'm sorta in the same boat, have been in pain management for several y...

Taking Hydrocodone After Tylenol

can I take hydrocodone 15 hours after taking tylenol ## Hi Jack, Based on my research, after about 6-8 hours there should only be very small amounts of Tylenol left in your system. However, that could change depending on the amount taken. How many Tylenol did you take? Learn More: Tylenol Details ## I took two 500mg doses of regular Tylenol roughly an hour ago. Is it safe to take one 5-325mg tablet of Norco (hydrocodone/tylenol)? I am in excruciating pain. ## You can take it at the same time! Most hydrocodone drugs have Tylenol in them.!!!

Pain management solution help

I have serious pain issues due to multiple construction accidents and a lifetime of heavy lifting. I was dismissed from Bluegrass Pain Specialist for coming up positive for THC because I was seeking alternative medications in lieu of increasing my dosage of hydrocodone. I am 55 and have two brothers that have died because of high doses of hydrocodone and oxycodone. The hydrocodone really helps, however, I do not want to increase my dosage. I now suffer. Please help. ## If you are lucky enough to have a good Methadone clinic near you, I would go on that. Then, you can wean off, VERY SLOWLY though, like a few Milligrams at a time after you reach a comfortable level for you. Or simply stay on it (called Maintenance). It is an answer for many Oxycontin users. I will say that it is not as go...

Fake Hydrocodone pills

Has anyone filled their prescription for blue Watson 10/500 pills from any pharmacies over the phone? I got 90 that look like my CVS refill, but have the effect of a vitamin. Ripped off again. ## I think I was similarly scammed. The color was greenish, not blue like the regular Watson 10/500 and tasted salty. I had been called 20 times and finally succumbed. Is this your experience too. The phone number was a 305 exchange ## I purchased Norcos over the phone. Came in a vacuumed plastic bag. They were blue with WATSON 540 printed on them. The looked real but when you take them it is like you are on valium, you don't get pain relief. Purchased from a 321 exchange. Anyone else with the same experience? ## I have also received fake pills from a 321 exchange. They are not real and will n...

switching from hydrocodone to morphine

My wife is a chronic pain patient. Today she went to have her periodic office visit with her pain management physician. She has, for several years, been prescribed fentanyl transdermal patches, 75 mcg/hour, along with hydrocodone/apap 10/325, 1 or 2 tablets every 8 hours, PRN for breakthrough pain. She changes the patches every 72 hours. Today the Dr changed her treatment regimine changing the fentanyl to 100 mcg/hrs, changing patch every 48 hours. He took her off the hydrocodone/apap, and said if she still has breakthrough pain, that he will prescribe immediate release morphine to replace the hydrocodone/apap. Her Dr says that this is in response to new laws or guidelines from the DEA and FDA. Is this true? He said that they can't prescribe hydrocodone/apap for chronic pain any lon...
