oxycodone IR vs. extended (time) release
Post a Reply Share
Oxycodone in the instant relief form is much better than extended time release. Time release comes on at the wrong times and when you really need pain relief they aren't working. The doctor often prescribes norco for breakthrough pain. Why take 2 pain pills when you can just take the roxy IR and not be so hard on your liver. I've been on pain meds for 10 years. Good luck to all of people suffering from chronic pain like me! ...

oxycontin 60mg op time release causing discomfort
4 Replies RSS Share
Since I started the 60mg op I have been feeling lots of discomfort in my chest, like pressure against my heart like a heart attack, but what I think is going on is it's backing up my bowels causing all this discomfort I never felt when I was just on norco. I've read here where op causes constipation, I'm wondering if this could be the reason for all the discomfort I'm in? I've noticed a change in my bowel movements, like smaller sized stools, not nearly as much is coming out like it used to do. Should I consider using a stool softener or a laxative to see if my discomfort subsides or should I head to the ER and say I'm having a heart attack only to find out I've got side effects happening related to this new drug I'm on? This feeling of constant pressure ... ...

norco m355
1 Reply RSS Share
What is the pain killing strength of a norco M 355 ## Hi Debbie, Just to clarify a couple of things - M 355 is actually reported to be a 100mg Diclofenac sodium extended-release tablet, made by Mylan Pharmaceuticals. It has no apparent relation to Norco other than the fact that it can also be used for pain relief; just not nearly as strong in my opinion. In terms of "pain killing strength", drug monographs describe Diclofenac as being used to relieve mild to moderate pain, whereas Norco is described as being used to relieve moderate to severe pain. I hope this helps! ...

Can't find norco
1 Reply RSS Share
In the detroit area there is a incredible shortage of norco. Pharmacy's say they have no info. Called FDA. Release date dec 15th add 3-4 days for delivery from distributors. I'm just trying to be patient but I'm finding it difficult. If you frequent a CVS pharmacy STOP they are so rude. Find a neighborhood pharmacy ## Hello, Sa Bic! How are you? I'm sorry that you're having a problem getting your prescription filled. It is common for shortages to occur towards the end each year, due to DEA mandated manufacturing limits on controlled substances. Once a manufacturer reaches their limit for the year, they can no longer manufacture new product, until after the new year. Inevitable, demand exceeds supply and shortages occur. According to the FDA, this is a narcotic analge... ...

morphine 60mg extended release
7 Replies RSS Share
How long does ER 60 mg morphine give pain relief per dose? ## Hi, Jane! How are you? These are designed to slowly release the medication over a period of 12 hours, so they are normally prescribed to be taken twice daily. However, some people do find that they don't get as much pain relief after about 10 hours, or so. Learn more MS Contin details here. 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. ## how often should you take 60mg morphine tablets? Its been at least eleven hours so is it OK to take another one? ## I take 1 60mg @ 5am and again at 4-5pm of Morphine Sulfate ER. They don't last 12 hrs for me and I also take Norco. 10/325 1-2 every 7hrs. Those ar... ...

Called Watson pharmaceutical about back order of norco. I was told by the manufacturer (Watson ) the release date for the distributors nov 7th.

Once they reach their allotted amount, they can... ...

Tramadol vs norco
7 Replies RSS Share
I have had my C-6 and 7 fused years ago and had pain releif from that. My symptom prior to rupture was dull pain in left scapula. After rupture, immense pain in scapula, left arm and numb index finger and thumb in left hand. After surgery, pain in back was gone and still had tingling and occasionally tip of left index finger went numb. Within this last year, my pain in scapula has returned and MRI shows moderate bulge in C-5 now. The pain was managed w 1 350mg Vicodin that I took when I got home from work at the end of day and naproxen while at work. I have been released by neurosurgeon to my primary. I have since been to neurologist for nerve conduction study to find that no nerve currently being pinched. They did however, discover that I have permanent nerve damage. I asked Dr. if I c... ...

hysingla ER v Norco
7 Replies RSS Share
Does the new Hyslinga work on severe pain better than Norco or Oxycodone? ## @MB, One might be able to compare the effects of Hysingla ER (Hydrocodone Bitartrate Extended-release) with Norco more easily since they share one of the same active ingredients. However, Oxycodone's analgesic effects are reportedly more potent than Hydrocodone and therefore I don't think Hysingla would be a better option than Oxycodone, personally. Then again, everyone tends to react/respond differently to these meds based on tolerance, level of pain, inert ingredients, metabolism, body chemistry, etc... So you may have to try them all for yourself in order to grasp a truly valid opinion between the three medications. One thing I do hear a lot though is that extended release meds are often recognized a... ...

I have a dr appt in a few days and was wondering what he might put me on? ## Hello, Hootsie! How are you? I am very sorry about your medical condition and that you're in so much pain. It's hard to guess what your doctor might recommend, but there is a time released formulation of Hydrocodone that's available, without the Acetaminophen, in higher doses, so if it works well for you, that might be the way to go. It's called Zohydro. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, ... ...

I have a spinal stimulator that was put in place on 8/19/16. It's the worst thing ever! I'm on 30mg extended release morphine TID and 15mg ir morphine for break through, but nothing is working!!! I was on norco 10-325 TID for years but it began not to work like I built up a tolerance. Any suggestions? My doctor is conservative but I have no life in constant pain. Oh, I'm also on neurontin 1200mg bid and zanaflex 4mg qid. ## What issues are you having with the spinal stimulator? It is such a shame that is isn't working for you.

NORCO Shortage in Houston, Tx

My husband suffers from sciatica and has suffered from it for at least 10 years. He has had 2 major invasive back surgeries to release pressure off of his sciatic nerve. The second surgery got him off of the floor and enabled him to function but only with the help of Norco and Tylenol and Ibuprofen. For some reason there is NO Norco available in Houston or the surrounding suburbs at this time. Does anyone know what is going on? ## I am sorry to hear this as as I also suffer from sciataca and also live in Houston. I was just about to start reaching out to forums such as this one to look for Vicodin or Norco as my doctor put me on Norco but it cannot stop the pain. Can you let me know if you find anyone? my sympathy goes out to all Sciataca sufferers. ...

norco for my pain management
2 Replies RSS Share
Hi, I've been taking norco 10/325 for a couple of years now for fibromyalgia and chronic back pain, tendonitus and siatica. I'm prescribed 90/month. But my pain is not being managed. I have high tolerance I guess., but im afraid to ask my dr. if he will prescribe 120 a month because 3 a day is just not cutting it at all. but i dont want him to get mad at me. Is he even allowed to prescribe more than 90 a month? or what is something that maybe lasts longer than the norco does? It seems these only help my severe pain for a couple of hours then it starts back up again. my quality of life is really diminishing. ## Hello, Sarah! How are you? If you want something that lasts longer, it might be best to speak to your doctor about trying a time released medication, such as Oxycontin. It... ...

how to wean off morphine and norco
2 Replies RSS Share
I have been on 30 mg morphine sulphate and norco for 2 years. I have cut down to 1 30 mg morphine sulphate and 1 norco twice a day. I have been doing this for 3 days. How should I continue to completely wean off? ## Hello, Edwardo! How are you? There are lower doses of Morphine available that your doctor can prescribe to help you taper off and, as long as they approve, you can cut or break the Norco to gradually keep lowering your dose, since it isn't time released. The FDA classifies this medication 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. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Is a morphine patch damaging to your kidneys ...

Do I put patch on and continue to take my norco till the fentanyl patch gets in to my system at full strength? I take two nor ps 10-325 every 6 hrs and they wear off at 4-5 hrs so pain comes on strong. I've read that it takes 12 to 24 hours for fentanyl to reach its peak so till it kicks it will I be safe to take reg dose of norco? Do not want to go to sleep and not wake up! Scary ## It would be best to be cautious and check with your doctor, before taking the Norco with the patch, since there can be some risk of increased sedation or overdose. However, in most cases it is prescribe that way, the time released patch is meant to control most of your pain, then a regular release medication is prescribed for breakthrough pain.

for the last 7 years I have been on Norco 10's got to the point I was taking 12 to 15 a day, it got to the point that they stopped working for me so my dr. put me on morphine er 15mg 3x a day with 30mg instant release 4x a day im new to morphine but have a very high tolerance to opiots, im just wondering if I made a good switch. I remember when the Norco made me feel great but I have yet to take two 30mg i.r. at once to see if that was a pleasant feeling, anyone have some helpful advice in this area? thanks ## Hello, Charles! How are you? The reason you aren't getting that same effect from the Morphine is because it's time released.

I have seen a neurologist for over 10 yrs. I suffer with severe headaches and fibromyalgia. My Dr has tried/prescribed me a couple of different things over time. I can't take Lyrical, i had a bad reaction, and I'm having trouble getting Celebrex which was effective. Walmart has had my script for 2 mo. and keep saying they need Dr. authorization.
