Hydrocodone Overview

Hydrocodone, sold under the brand name Zohydro ER, among others, is an opioid used to treat severe pain of a prolonged duration, if other measures are not sufficient.[9][10] It is also used as a cough suppressant in adults.[9] It is taken by mouth.[9] Typically it is sold as the combinations acetaminophen/hydrocodone or ibuprofen/hydrocodone.[9][11] By itself it is sold in a long-acting formulation...

Taking Hydrocodone for Depression

I am wondering if anybody else out there has taken Hydrocodone and noticed that symptoms of depression are alleviated? I find that many of today's anti-anxiety and antidepressant drugs come with unpleasant side effects, whereas while taking Hydrocodone they aren't there. The caveat to all of this is that yes, I know that Hydrocodone and opiates in general can be addictive. So long term use would result in withdrawal symptoms. I'm just wondering who else might agree with me on this? ## I have taken dozens of antidepressants as well as been prescribed antipsycotics and other meds for off-label usage, and nothing has worked effectively over the past 15 years. I will take hydrocodone for a chronic pain condition, and, YES, oh my goodness, YES, it seems to make me immune to a dep...

Hydrocodone 10 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. Thank you for your reply :-) ## Please correct me if I'm wrong Kitty, but didn't Watson acquire Actavis and change their name to 'Actavis'? (Re: actavis.co.id/id...

switching from hydrocodone to morphine

My wife is a chronic pain patient. Today she went to have her periodic office visit with her pain management physician. She has, for several years, been prescribed fentanyl transdermal patches, 75 mcg/hour, along with hydrocodone/apap 10/325, 1 or 2 tablets every 8 hours, PRN for breakthrough pain. She changes the patches every 72 hours. Today the Dr changed her treatment regimine changing the fentanyl to 100 mcg/hrs, changing patch every 48 hours. He took her off the hydrocodone/apap, and said if she still has breakthrough pain, that he will prescribe immediate release morphine to replace the hydrocodone/apap. Her Dr says that this is in response to new laws or guidelines from the DEA and FDA. Is this true? He said that they can't prescribe hydrocodone/apap for chronic pain any lon...

Hydrocodone-Acetaminophen 10/325 by Mallinckrodt

My pharmacy changed my meds from the yellow 10-325 v 3601 norco to the 10-325 white m367 mallinckrodt. I've been taking the yellows for years with no problems. Today I started the whites and feeling dizzy, a little weak, kind of panicky. What is different about the two meds that would cause this? ## hi i take the 10-325 hydrocodone apap tablet malli and i was takeing the yellow 10-325 witch helped me i have a very bad back and spine problems the whit pills do noting but give me headackes and upset stomack i have been on vicodin for many years now that the drugs store gave me the white pills they do not work but make me sick what can i do? ## Hello, Jennifer and Don!

Are my orange/red tablets hydrocodone from HAB pharmaceuticals?

I have some large oval orange/red tabs and were told they were Hydrocodone 10mg-325. Are they what I was told? ## Hello, Fred! How are you? What are the markings on them? That information is what would enable me to check for you to see what these tablets contain. Can you please post back with this additional information? Thanks! ## Hi, There are no markings on the tabs, just large oval orange-red tabs. Thanks ## Fred, Tablets with no markings at all are not real Hydrocodone. All prescription drugs carry markings on them. I get Tramadol once a month from my Dr. so I should and do know the difference. ## I got tramadol 100 mg that originated from India. They are in blister pak of 10, NO markings AT ALL, and round & yellow. I felt a little better but, I also felt a tiny bit like I had ...

difference between hydrocodone acetaminophen norco 10 325 mg & 7.5-325 mg

What's the difference between Norco 10 325 mg & 7.5-325 mg ## Hello, Howard! How are you? Well, the dosage is different, just like you've listed. One contains 10mgs of Hydrocodone with the 325mgs of Acetaminophen, while the other contains only 7.5mgs of it. 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. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have been taking hydromorphone 4 Mg. Tablets and I was just switched to narco 10/325 witch one is better for stoping the pain? ## Can u switch over to 7.5-325 even tho u been taking 10-325 on same day ## Have they stopped making the 325 mg-7.5 mg, oval, orange, imprinted with 3605, V?they gave me the white ones ...

what is the difference between white and yellow hydrocodone

I read that the yellow norcos have dye and the white norcos don't. One is fat soluble and the other is water soluble. What's the difference? ## What pharm in chandler az still carries the white 7.5 hydrocodene ## Hello, Linda! How are you? Are you asking about the ones that were yellow, but are now white? If so, then the only difference is the removal of the dye, nothing else. Nik, I saw your other post and I'm sorry, but the ones with the higher amounts of Acetaminophen in them are no longer being manufactured, so you can't obtain them, anywhere. 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. Is there anything else I can help with? ## YOU ARE WRONG V...

Switch from hydrocodone to fentanyl 12

I started seeing a pm Dr after having major surgery on my shoulder 7 weeks ago. My surgeon listens to some gal in his office and had cut me from dilaudid down to hydrocodone leaving me in a lot of pain especially during 3x week therapy. The pm Dr put me on fentanyl patch 12 with nothing else. I had been taking 4-6 hydrocone 7.5 a day but now only have the patch. I have been feeling wds and the patch is not doing anything for pain and I cannot see pm for a month. I think I made a big mistake. How much hydro is the equivalent to the 12 mcg patch every 72 hrs ? ## Hello, Trish! How are you? Fentanyl is the strongest opiate that's available, so the patch is equivalent to just a small fraction of the Hydrocodone. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the p...

take one pill every 12 hours what does it mean

What does it mean "take 1 tablet by mouth every 8 hours × 2 days" should i only take it for 2 days or every 2 days?? ## Hello, Miri! How are you? According to the FDA prescription writing information, that would be taking one every 8 hours for 2 days. Which medication is it? Perhaps I can provide you with more information on it, if you post back and clarify! ## Take hydrocodone every 12 hours as needed for pain - how many pills should be prescribed? ## What does it mean to take 2 tablets every four hours? My doctor prescribed me some sinuend tablets to take 2 every 4 hours. How many must I take in a day? ## However many they want. When my friend broke her ankle they gave her 3 days worth.

I have taken methadone for about 9 yrs. and other pain medicines before that. I have chronic pain post polio syndrome, Degenerative arthritis, Degenerative disc. in back due to severe Scoliosis.
