Why are prescription prices going up so much?

In Dec. 2015I got 120 Hydrocodone/10/325Acet. and 90 Tamazapam 30mg. I paid around $55. Today I only got the Hydrocodone and it was $81.00. I live in a small town and get my prescriptions filled for years at Brookshires grocery. What is happening? The clerk who has been there years didn't seem to know. I will have to ask my Dr. What a good replacement will be in over the counter meds. ## Patricia, all prescriptions are going up and so is everything else. It is a combination of things that are making the prices go up. With more people on Medicaid and receiving free prescriptions, someone has to pay for that, the cost of making the meds, the salary and insurance for the employees, pharmaceutical heads, rent, utilities, etc for the bulidings where the meds are made, etc. You might want...

Urine Test Hydrocodone

I took 2 7.5mg hydros monday at 11pm and had a urine test wednesday morning. I drank lots of liquids the day before and 3 hrs before the test. I peed a whole lot of times. Will I pass or fail the test? I weigh 200 lbs, 5ft 10" tall. I also have taken a urine cup measure test the month before and passed it 8 hrs after taking 2 hydros. ## i also wanna add that the drug test was taken ay 1130 am wed morning. ## I really can't say how the liquids and such would affect it, because there are many variables from person to person that also play a role in the detection time. However, I can tell you that the average time that Hydrocodone is detectable for most people is approximately 6 days, after last dosing. Learn more Hydrocodone details here. When do you get the results back? ## I am ...

dot drug testing

I am taking hydrocodone for back pain. I have a prescription for the hydrocodone. Will I test positive on a dot drug screening? What will be the outcome? ## I'm taking hydrocodone for my pain and I tested positive at the dot drug test. Will I lose my CDL? ## How did you make out on your test?... I'm looking into getting my CDL, but i'm on Buprenorphine for pain management and from what i'm reading it's a crap-shoot! Seems like no-one cares if the dr. prescribed it or not, if you test positive you're done, which seems completely unfair to me, if you are under a doctors care and taking meds as prescribed? It's slanted towards alcohol which leaves your system pretty quickly compared to medications, that i want to add when taken like prescribed are keeping people...

Hydrocodone Acetaminophen (Norco) 10 325 Mg

I'm recovering from my third back surgery. I can take hydrocodone/acetaminophen 10-325 mg tab with no stomach problems. However, when I take hydrocodone/acetaminophen 7.5-325mg tab Mallinc generic, I have severe stomach pains. The pharmacist says there is no difference except the 10 vs the 7.5. It is NOT in my mind, it's in my stomach & it really hurts. Can you clear this up for me? I will be very grateful for your attention. Thank you. ## Who manufactures the 10/325 tablet that you've taken? There can be differences in the inactive ingredients from one manufacturer to another and that can cause problems for some people that are sensitive. So, say for example that the 10/325 was manufactured by Watson Pharmaceuticals, the inactive ingredients could be completely differen...

Hydrocodone 10/325 white G037 Tris Pharma

Anyone think this is just as effective as Vicodin and Watson etc? Thanks :) ## Not even close. My pain seems the same. I've taken two at a time and it's had no effect at all. ## Yes, I have really suffered in pain this month on tris pharma and will never try them again. My chiropractor is making a lot of money this month LOL more than his usual amount. I told my pharmacist and he said he will not order them next month. I actually have a science degree, and I looked up the background of Watson which is now owned by Teva pharmaceuticals (originally out of Israel) they seem top-notch! And they produce Watson.

can i take hydrocodone with viibryd

I started the 40 mg does of Viibryd about 3 weeks ago; I take it at night with supper. I have been prescribed Hydrocodone/acetam 10-325 mg for knee pain. I take the Hydrocodone as needed for pain, and I try to take it in the daytime away from the time I typically take the Viibryd. Question can I take the two together or should I keep taking them separately as I am doing. ## I didn't find any contraindications listed, so either way is likely fine, unless your doctor, or pharmacist instructs otherwise. However, taking them at the same time, or close together, may result in your experiencing more side effects than usual, which the FDA lists as possibly including nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, sedation, dry mouth, headache, and mood changes.

manufacturers hydrocodone acetaminophen 10 325

I was taking the Mallinckrodt hydrocodone-acetaminaphen 10-325. They were doing the job. My pharmacy ran out and was using Caraco hydrocodone-acetaminaphen 10-325. They were next to worthless for relief. What's the deal do you think? ## Hi Perry, Usually when you switch to another manufacturer's version of the same drug, the primary differences can be found in the list of "inactive" ingredients (which I personally don't believe are actually "inactive" as they say). To my understanding the various binders/fillers may account for how well you metabolize/absorb each active ingredient. Mallinckrodt's M367 (10/325) tablets reportedly contain the following set of inactive ingredients: crospovidone + magnesium stearate + microcrystalline cellulose + povidone + c...

Hydrocodone yellow Norco 10 325 availability

I have a prescription for the yellow norco 10 325. I've taken these for years and now I can't get them. The white ones does not help. I have Arthritis very bad and I really need to know who still carries them in the Mansfield, Arlington, Texas area. I'm 70 and these are the only ones that helps without me having to sleep my life away on the stronger pain meds that I have taken. I'm 70 so I'll probably be sleeping soon enough. SO in the mean time I would like to have my yellow norco 10 325 back. ## Hello, Della! How are you? The white ones with the NORCO 539 marking on them are the same as the yellow, it's just that the manufacturer has removed the dye from them. The yellow are no longer being made. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit...

how long does it take for 4 hydrocodone to get out of your system

I took 4 hydrocodone at once, 3 days ago. How long does it take to get out of your system? ## I'm sorry, but anyone who is concerned about how fast a narcotic will be out of their system probably shouldn't have taken it in the first place. ## No one correct answer. It depends on your body size, physiology, the type of testing I'm assuming is being done. You should be safe after 80 hours. Maybe a little sooner. ## Hair tests can take longer... MUCH longer. ## 1 10mg hydro codone taken in a year. I hurt my back on the road so I took it at home on Sunday and don't be back to work to tuesday. Will a urine test show up anything.

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...

pain in lower back and leg

I was prescribed with hydrocodone acetaminophen 5 325 for pain in my leg and back. Can I also take hydrocodone-apap 5-500 at the same time? ## It isn't a good idea to take both at the same time without talkiing to your dr first. If you need more medication, maybe your dr can increase it or give you something else. But, if you do take Hydrocodone 5 mg/Acetaminophen 325 mg And Hydrocodone 5 mg/Acetaminophen 500 mg at the same time Do Not take another one Or anything else that contains Acetaminophen before at least 6 hours are up because of the amount of Acetamiinophen. The most Acetaminophen (Tylenol) that it is safe to take at one time is 1,000 mg and that can be taken Only as frequently as once every 6 hours for a few days. ## No, APAP is medical speak for Acetaminophen, so that wou...

Best Brand Of Hydrocodone?

Hello everyone, I'm trying to find out what manufacturer makes the best (as in best pain relief) 8 mg hydrocodone. I've been taking 8 mg Mallinckrodt hydrocodone since December 2017. I take the medication for breakthrough neuropathic pain (I also have intrathecal pump w/ hydromorphone). Prior to Dec. 2017, I was taking Actavis brand 30 mg oxycodone but getting only minimal pain relief which is why my doctor switched to the hydrocodone. I had tried a few different brands of oxycodone but in the end, stuck with Actavis as it was MUCH better than the others. I posted a similar question here about oxycodone back in 2015, check out the link below. Anyway, any info on which brand of hydrocodone provides the best pain relief is greatly appreciated! Thanks! 5/4/2015 Post Re: Best Oxycod...
