Is Ip145 Same As Other Generic Vicoprofen

yaya Says:

Is there a difference between ip 145 generic ibuprofen and other generic ibuprofen? My pharmacist gave me this one (ip145) because it was a lot less money than the other generic brand I was taking. I swear it doesn't work as well. Is it just in my head?

Hello, Yaya! How are you?

This tablet is manufactured by Anneal Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 7.5mgs of Hydrocodone and 200mgs of Ibuprofen. The FDA classifies this medication as a 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 can be slight fluctuations in the amount of the active ingredients from one generic to another, so there is a chance that this one is slightly lower, so it may not work as well for you. However, since these differences are so slight, your body will usually adjust in about a week, or so. If not, then you should consult your doctor as you may need a dosage adjustment.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Same thing here. The IP 145 are so much weaker. Got my prescription of 60 filled half with the ones with the V on them and half with the IP 145 because they were out of the V ones. I could tell the difference when I dosed with the IP ones that they were a lot weaker. When I got my next prescription gave me all IP ones. Could not get proper pain relief from them. Get 60 a month and only take two per day for chronic back pain. Taking my next prescription to another pharmacy that will not pawn off these cheap ones, tired of hurting.

I have taken 7.5/200 hydrocodone/ibuprofen for 10 years through pain management along with a fentanyl pump. I began suffering very badly after filling my latest script. My others were manufactured by Amneal the 145 and few othets. The last was Quailitest. I called my pharmacy to inform them and evidently, they've received many complaints with Qualitest brand. So I made sure I never get that one again and requested Amneal.

First, I have been taking this medication for years and your “body does not just become accustomed” to the crap from Amneal they give us. Generic forms of pain meds have become a joke and to the expense of those of us who really need it for pain. Watson seems to be one that somewhat relieves the pain and Qualitest is another. Those I try to keep away from are Abbvie and a few others. Just for the record, if you wanted to get let’s say 180 of the non generic made by Abbott, the cost would run $899.37 (Walmart quote). The generic runs $237.00. Doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out the fillers and crap they put in generics that the FDA doesn’t care about translates into they could care less about the average person just trying to relieve pain. It’s pathetic what our health system has come to. Unless you're rich you don’t matter! Good luck.
