Hydrocodone Overview

Hydrocodone, also known as dihydrocodeinone, is a semi-synthetic opioid synthesized from codeine, one of the opioid alkaloids found in the opium poppy.[4] It is a narcotic analgesic used orally for relief of moderate to severe pain, but also commonly taken in liquid form as an antitussive/cough suppressant.[5] Hydrocodone is prescribed predominantly within the United States, with the International Narcotics Control Board reporting that 99% of the worldwide supply in 2007 was consumed in the U...

Walmart pharmacist abusing power

My doc electronically sent a script of hydrocodone to Wal-Mart 17days ago saying take 1 every 6hrs FOR 20 DAYS.Gave me 80pills which is only enough for 19days..nbd. He sent a new script to Wal-Mart today but increased amount to cover 30 days. Pharmacist REFUSES TO FILL until the 19th again sayin I have to wait 30 days for script even though previous script stated on bottle 20day supply & instructions & amount only amount to 19days. Says insurance won't cover until 30days. I called other pharmacies& all agreed insurance will cover now Or even yesterday. Wal-Mart pharmacist was so rude.refused to explain why I have to go 12days without my meds when doc says I need em.Refused to give me her name or a supervisor & HUNG UP ON ME!

Which Is Stronger Hydrocodone 10 325 Or Oxycodone 5 325
104 Replies RSS
I have been taking Hydrocodone 10/325 for chronic pain, 1 pill every 6 hours. My Dr. just prescribed Oxycodone 5/325 with up to 2 pills every 6 hours. Which is stronger? ## The oxy is stronger but who knows your body may b used 2 the vicoden. But if he is allowing u 2 take 2 @ a time it would b better if he would just give u the percocet 10/325 as it would b as effective with 1/2 the amount of aspirin. Try it out n post your feedback. ## Scott is correct, the Oxycodone is actually stronger than the Hydrocodone. To equal 10mgs of the Hydrocodone, you only need 6.67mgs of the Oxycodone, so I'd advise caution when you first take them, you probably shouldn't take 2 of them, until you try one and see how well it works for you. Are there any questions or comments? ## Thank you for the...

actavis hydrocodone/IBuprof 7 5 200 mg
2 Replies RSS
I have been taking Hydrocodone/Ibuprofen 7.5-200mg tabs for over 10 years now for chronic pain from having my jaw smashed & back broken. The past two months I have received a different generic from Wallgreens with Actavis as the manufacturer and THEY DO NOT WORK. Absolute crap!! I tried taking more to get the same normal affect and now I have had nothing but major stomach issues and ears ringing. I am going to my Dr on Monday to discuss!! This is ridiculous!! I am going to report to FDA and wallgreens headquarters!! Please let me know if anyone else feels this way?? Thank you. ## I had the exact same issue when I went to have my script filled at Walgreens in Dec 2016. The pharmacy of course did not say they switched manufacturers and so a week into the meds I thought I was losing it...

hydrocodone ip 115
9 Replies RSS
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...

White oblong with 123 on one side .R D Y on the other side. Is this hydrocodone ## No, it is not. This tablet is manufactured by Dr. Reddy's Laboratories and they list it as containing 40mgs of Atorvastatin, which is used to help lower cholesterol. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and joint/muscle aches. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi my name is Sonya,Is this medicine good for back pain?severe pack pain??

Actavis hydrocodone/acetaminophen 5-325 2172
7 Replies RSS
I've just had my very first surgery at age 22 on my right ear (Tymnoplasty). I was actually fine with mild pain leaving the hospital and was given this prescription at Walgreens to take every four hours before any pain started when leaving the hospital. I've never had a problem with generic medication, but this is possibly the worse pain I've experienced! I called my doctor to let him know and he explained to take another even though I had just taken this one at 7. It is now 9, I am on my second pill and still feel no relief. I then had to call my doctor again in which he said it could be the brand of the medicine. He actually prescribed me Norco but Walgreens gave me this because of my insurance. I know I should experience little to no pain, but pain that makes you cry shou...

pain relief ## Sorry, it would be impossible to post pictures of all the Hydrocodone pills on the market. What they look like is entirely up to the whit and whim of the manufacturer, so each one made by a different company will look different and even within a company how they appear will vary according to the dosage. If you have a pill that you suspect is Hydrocodone, I can look it up for to be certain of what it is, if you post back with a description of the pill and include any and all imprints on the tablet. ## I have a pill with the imprints RC GGP on it and it aint showing anything in any pill identifier ## m-357 is some kind of lortab but im not sure if its a 5, 7.5, or 10 mg tablet someone please let me know which one it is!! ## white oblong pill RC GGP ## Small white oblong pil...

832 93 how can you tell if you are taking a placebo of the medication you used to take
47 Replies RSS
My doctor and I had discussed my quitting taking Clonopin 0.5 mg. as I have taken for so long, so he told me he would submit a placebo at some time without telling me. Got my RX filled and keep sweating and getting headaches. Could this be from the placebo as the pill looks and has the same imprint as the original one I was taking. How can you tell? ## What kind of doctor would do that to you? That's crazy. You should be tapered off any medication like that. I would find a new doctor. ## If it has the same marking, then it is the same medication. Your doctor cannot manufacture and them have a pharmacy give you a fake pill, especially with the marking that is registered with the FDA as containing that medication. Doing such would be illegal. And the other poster is correct, this type...
