Mallinckrodt cheap hydrocodone returns!

I'm sure they're more than a few of you out there that might be returning to look into basically the same problems with Mallinckrodt Pharm"s Hydrocodone/APAP 7.5/325, commonly referred to as Norco. About 4 years ago, Mallinckrodt dumped a bunch of this product on the US market. I have been taking Norco for about 12 years & have always been at about the same dose and never had any problems until I ran into this brand. I've had Actavis, Watson, & Qualtest brands with relatively no noticeable difference. Then four years ago, I filled my usual prescription and came home to find a different shaped tablet with M366 on the side. Almost immediately after my first dose, first came the stomach ache, then the headache, and eventually the feeling of withdrawal. I went to the...

Camber brand Hydrocodone

Has anyone else gotten this brand of 10mg hydrocodone from meijer pharmacy? And has anyone had problems? Any comments welcome. Asking because i recieved the 10mg of it yesterday and so far havent noticed any relief. Coments and replies please?? ## What is the name of pharmaceutical company that makes it? ## Camber makes some of the worst and most questionable narcotic analgesics on the market! You would get far more relief from 600mg to 800mg worth of ibuprofen liquid gels than most narcotic analgesics today! Never take this amount of ibuprofen without consulting your doctor first! The day of effective narcotic analgesics is over for the foreseeable future after all of them were reformulated in 2013-2014 to remove the chemical matrix that caused oxytocin to be released by the pituitary ...

hydrocodone / homatropine dosage for child

How many tablespoons of hydrocodone/homatropine 5-1.5 mg/mL (out of 90 mL) do I give to my 7 year old child, weighing 65lbs? ## Please do not give any to a child, unless it has been prescribed for them, and if it has, please follow the dosing instructions. It is usually dosed by teaspoon, not tablespoon, a tablespoon, or more would be way too much, and could cause an overdose. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, constipation, and headache. What symptoms is the child experiencing?

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...

hydrocodone homatropine efficacy

My bottle dates back two years old. Is it still OK to take? Wonder if it will harm me at this age? I'm sick with a cough and can't get out. ## I’m waiting to know what the difference in strength is between a hydrocodone-homatropine 5-1.5mg pill and a 10/325mg hydrocodone-acetaminophen pill, and how many of the hydrocodone-homatropine 5-1.5mg pills would I need to take to equal one of my 10/325 hydrocodone-acetaminophen pills? Can I also take my tramadol 50mg pills with the hydrocodone-homatropine 5-1.5mg pills? ## Mike, medications tend to lose efficacy once past their expiration date, so they may not work as well as they did, when they were new. Additionally, liquid medications can turn rancid, so they could actually make you ill. Thus, it would be best not to take it, bu...

hyd polst ch 10 8 mg 5ml

I NEED TO KNOW IF I CAN GET THIS MEDICATION FOR A COUGH I HAVE HAD FOE THREE YEARS. I TAKE IT ONLY ONCE A DAY BECAUSE I PAY $182.00 A MONTH. I AM WIDOWED AND 65 YEARS OLD. I CAN NOT AFFORD TO PAY THIS AMOUNT. IF I SIGN FOR IT CAN I GET IT OVER THE COUNTER AND HOW MUCH IS IT.. SINCERELY CAROL ## Hello, Carol! How are you? No, this is not available over the counter. The hyd stands for Hydrocodone, which is a narcotic, so it is only available by prescription. 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. Have you discussed the issue with your doctor? They may be able to prescribe a cheaper alternative. As to the cough, do you know what's causing it? Are you on any ...

Hydrocodone by Mallickrodt

If anyone else is experiencing this junk hydrocodone by Mallinckrodt please complain to the FDA and also to the headquarters of whatever pharmacy you use. I find it absolutely crazy that this seems to be the only brand on the market anymore. You may as well just take a Tic Tac because these things do absolutely nothing for pain. ## Not every generic medication works well for everyone that tries it, unfortunately. It has also recently been discover that the inactive ingredients may not be as inactive as they originally thought according to this Science Alert article. As far as I'm aware, it is not the only product available, however, they might be the company that has most recently been offering the cheapest price through your pharmacy's distributor. The FDA warns that this medic...

Hydrocodone-Acetaminophen 10mg/325mg overdose effects and safety

Male 210lbs - takes whatever whenever, but is taking over a dozen hydrocodone-apap 10mg/325mg pills in 24 hours. Is that bad? What's bound to happen?...What if he takes oxycodone 15mg also? ## Hello, From what I am seeing, daily consumption of hydrocodone should not exceed 40 milligrams in patients not tolerant to opiates. The PDR from 2006 states that Norco 10, containing 10 milligrams of hydrocodone and 325 mg of APAP (Acetaminophen) can be taken at a dosage of up to twelve tablets per day (120 mg of hydrocodone). This restriction is only limited by the fact that twelve tablets, each containing 325 mg of APAP (Acetaminophen), puts the patient right below the 24-hour FDA maximum of 4,000 mg of APAP. Some specially compounded products are routinely given to chronic pain patients in ...

Amneal Pharmaceuticals Hydrocodone 10-325

I have been taking hydrocodone 10-325 (made by Watson) for about a year. I picked up my prescription yesterday and instead of the normal yellow pill, I received a white oblong pill imprinted with m367 on it. I took 2 for breakthrough pain and had no relief what-so-ever. I called the pharmacy and was told that they will no longer be able to get the med from Watson. Does anyone know what has happened? I have chronic pain, and these white ones from Amneal Pharmaceuticals is not going to cut it. Has anyone else experienced this? ## Hello, Dano! How are you? There's no way to know which manufacturer's product your pharmacy will carry at any given time. You might be better served to talk to your doctor about trying a different medication. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the po...

hydrocodone 5 325 to acetaminophen

My daughter has been taking hydrocodone 5/325 every 4 hrs since Thurs afternoon. 24 hrs ago, her dr moved it to every 6 hrs, and she took her last one at 615pm last night (it's now 1250a). Can you switch to extra strength, OTC acetaminophen now (500mg tabs)? Or should we wait longer after her last hydrocodone dose? Please advise. Thank you! ## You can take up to 3000mg of acetaminophen in a 24hr period. Anymore than that should be under a doctor's care/advice. ## According to the FDA, their 'liver warning' goes by a maximum daily dosage of 4,000 mg within a 24-hour period. This is not to say that you shouldn't consult with your doctor first, but it should allow for substantial flexibility in your dosing. If you're currently taking 1300mgs a day (325mgs four times...

hydrocodone acetaminophen 5 325 mallinckrodt

I have been taking 5-500 acetaminophen for my rheumatoid for a few years now with no issues and good blood test results every 3 to 5 months. My new insurance company just changed it to 3-325. I've taken about 80 over the past few weeks and have developed thick red painful rashes on my thighs and waist at belt line. They are made by a different company as well. I made doctor appointmntment but its 4.5 weeks away. Any advice or thoughts. this is the only change in my diet or medicine I can think of. ## Hello, Danny! How are you? Sorry about the problem that you're having. Actually, your insurance company cannot change your medication and/or dosage. That can only be approved by your doctor, even if there is something that they don't cover, or something is unavailable, any chang...

Hydrocodone 10 acetaminophen 325 mg tab

I am super scared... I have taken a total of 17 hydrocodone 10/300 today. I read (afterward) that 90mg of hydrocone is lethal. I have tried to make myself vomit to get the last pills out, but I cant tell if what is coming up is a dissolved pill or just mucus. I dont want to die!! I dont know what to do. Going to a hospital is not an option, I have children sleeping & no one tp watch them..... ## Hey I'm here :/ ## You need to get checked out for side effects of taking too much Acetaminophen/Tylenol. Anything over 4,000 in a 24 hr period can be toxic. You won't immediately feel the side effects of this, but you do need to get checked out. ## To the user who started this thread, I strongly agree with post #2 in that you should get your levels checked to make sure you don't...

Today I started the whites and feeling dizzy, a little weak, kind of panicky.

How Long Does It Take For Hydrocodone To Get Out Of Your System

I have been on hydrocodone for five years 10 mg for what started out for back pain. The time has come for me to stop since it has become an addiction. I will be out Friday 05/11/2012 and will begin to detox myself @ home. just wanting to know how long they take to get out of your system, and things to do to help while going through the with drawl process. ## While I don't have any personal experience with this medication, I have read that it could be in your system for about a week or so (depending on a number of factors). Usually for drugs like this, I think the safest way to stop taking them is to taper off them, if possible. Some medications can be taken in fractions (actually cut into pieces) and these smaller pieces can be taken in place of the regular dose for a period of seve...

substituted hydrocodone when my oxycodone was short, test in 2 days, have not taken any more hydrocodone for at least 48 hours.

I am prescribed Oxycodone 30 mg. ,6X/day. I was running short so I took Hydrocodone for about 4 days to catch up. I have stopped taking the Hydrocodone 10mg. for at least 48 hours. I am back on my Oxycodone. If both show up I will obviously be kicked out . Could the Hydrocodone 10 /500 be out (not show on my UA) after 48to 56 hours? ## There is really no way to say with any certainty. Narcotics are usually detectable for 4 to 5 days, after taking them, but this can vary, depending on the amounts used, your individual metabolism, overall health, activity levels and many other factors. In reality, some people's bodies tend to process them out very fast, but there are others that find themselves still testing positive months and rarely, years after they've taken a medication. Are t...

Pill with cfm labeled

I was sent a prescription for hydrocodone and it has the imprint CFM on it. I am not sure what that is, and there was no information about this. I try to talk to the pharmacy overseas and no one will answer me. Please tell me what this could be. ## I was sent the same medication...did you ever find out what it was? ## Sorry, I tried several resources, but since it is a foreign medication, no one has been able to come up with a positive ID. ## I RECEIVED A PRECRIPTION FROM AN INDIAN COMPAN WITH NO IDENTIFICATION ON IT. IT IS OVAL IN SHAPE AND HAS THE LETTERS - CFM - ON IT. CAN YOU PLEASE IDENTIFY THIS DRUG FOR ME. IT WAS SUPPOSE TO BE AN ORDER OF XANAX. ## I am very sorry, no one has, yet, been able to find an identification for this tablet. Many people have searched, to no avail. This i...

mallinckrodt hydrocodone side effects and info needed

I was prescribed hydrocode 10/325 by my md. I was getting yellow pills.now I'm getting pills that i believe are from mallinckrodt the hotel says manufacturing company is MLKCM. My concern is that this MLKCM brand make me feel ill. It causes heart palpitations, increased bowel movements, and it does not help the pain as well add the other.

i need to find a doctor in fort worth texas that prescribes pain killers

Does anyone know a doctor that is good about prescribing pain killers like hydrocodens 10/325 in fort worth Texas? I am a diabetic type 1 that has a lot of pain and really in need of a good doctor that can help me out and not think i am faking pain. ## Due to the new laws that have recently been put in place, you will most likely be better off seeing a pain management specialist and there isn't a very good chance of getting this particular medication anymore. The FDA and DEA are cracking down and aren't letting general practitioners or surgeons treat chronic pain that requires long-term regular treatments. They will only be allowed to prescribe such medications for a short period of time, such as for a few weeks immediately after someone has had surgery or been injured. Learn mo...

Amneal hydrocodone says IP 109

Taking it for 3 yrs, back pain getting worse on 2 per day. The state is clamping down on opioids. What could my doctor prescribe for me at this point? ## Even with the clamp downs going on, your doctor can still prescribe necessary medications, they just have to be careful how much they prescribe and make sure there is a legitimate reason for the patient to need them. If the person has a possibly fatal illness, such as stage 4 cancer, such restrictions set forth by the DEA, exclude them. Too many doctors were prescribing pain medications, without verifying that a patient had a real reason to need them. The tablet you've mentioned is the 5/325mg dosage, so if your doctor things it may help, there is a 7.5/325mg dose and a 10/325mg that they could prescribe for you. The FDA classifies...

hydrocodone ip 115

My pharmacy just switched to the Avkare brand of Norco 7.5. The imprint on it is IP 115. I feel like these do not work at all for me. I would like to know if anyone else that are on these or ever have been on them can let me know how it works/worked for them. ## Hello, Maria! How are you? Has there been any change? As permitted by the Hatch-Waxman Act of 1984, there can be fluctuations in generic medications. They are allowed to differ in the amount of the active ingredients by as much as plus or minus 20% of what's in the name brand, additionally, they do not have to measure against each other, only against the name brand. Thus it is possible that this one is a little lower than the prior one you were taking. However, since the differences are slight, most people adjust within a we...
