Re: The price of hydrocodone... I've been told big store chains now have limits on what they can order; store policy. The stores are now more afraid of robbery. So, each store is raising the price, not the manufacturer. Go to the small private pharmacies. I've been told they will have the medication in stock. They can set their own limit on the amount they keep in stock. Last time I went to fill my medication, they were on backorder. I checked 6 stores that were close and they had none. I had to drive a half hour to get it filled. Today, it was triple the price. For those who need medication to function, this is unacceptable.

Since this is now a Schedule II, the increased security involved in dealing with this med is the reason for the increase in cost. The increased security goes from the manufacturer to the pharmacist that fills it.

Hello, Conan! How are you?

And thank you, again, BL for your helpful post.

However, something I'd like to add is that it isn't the stores/pharmacies that set the limit. The limit that is set on how much they can order and keep in stock each month is set by the DEA. It's based on the size of the store/pharmacy, their customer base and etc.

Prior to October, Hydrocodone combinations were not on that list, but they are now, so they are limited in how much they can keep in stock.

The FDA lists this as 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.

Are there any comments or questions?

My hydrocodone Rx jumped from 90 tabs for 10.00 to 27.00. Why? I cant get an answer. For some people they have to use this for pain relief. No other choice.
