Is there anything out there that can be used that could be similar too lortab/hydrcodone ## Hello, Sharon! How are you? There are actually quite a few other options available, including other narcotic alone, or others that are also combined with Acetaminophen. What specific problem do you have with the Lortab?

I take 4 hydrocodone 10/375 a day for neck pain. It is getting filled as norco now. Is there anything else that might not cause so much stomach or intestinal pain and discomfort?

Effective substitute for hydrocodone
2 Replies RSS
I had my knee surgery yesterday and am on hydrocodone 10/325. It manages pain pretty well but it seems to make me itch. I plan to call the Dr, but would like to know an equivalent pain medicine that I may tolerate better for this? Not taking it or not taking it as often results in significant increase in pain. ## Hello, Kalisnick! How are you? Percocet might be an alternative that you can try. It contains Acetaminophen and Oxycodone. 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. Do you have hives with the itching or are you just feeling itchy? If there are no hives, then it may be just a side effect that will eventually go away, as your... ...

Any OTC substitute for Hydrocodone/APAP?
29 Replies RSS
Hello! I was prescribed Hydrocodone/APAP 5-325 MG. (It also says on bottle: generic form NORCO 5-325). The only medication that's worked for my condition. Is there any OTC substitute or anything they'll more likely prescribe me? Everyone thinks I have an addiction. I only had a quantity of 12. I'm not having withdrawals. I could go a few days without my medication too. It just really helps. I haven't been able to work due to my condition and I need an income. But they won't give me a refill. My condition: I was given this because the past year I've been dealing with mysterious, unknown painful urination. I've seen specialists, had a ct scan done, been on multiple pills for UTI, urine culture. Nothing they can figure out. It comes up as an infection though. It... ...

However, some people have had good luck with the anticonvulsants that help with nerve pain, such as Lyrica or Neurontin. The FDA lists their typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, mood swings, weight changes, headache and dry mouth. Its something you could ask your doctor about trying.

Substitute for Lortab 5

Hydrocodone/bit/acet ## I have a strange reaction to Lortab. It will keep me up. I have a very hard time falling asleep when I have taken this drug. One doctor suggested to me it was because of my ADD. Is there another drug that I can ask for would work like Lortab that hopefully wouldn't keep me awake. This is a very frustrating problem for me. ## Yes, narcotics do sometimes cause that in some people and it can even be severe enough that it causes some people to abuse them, because they like that effect. By now, I hope you've already found another medication to use, Angela. If anyone else is seeking similar information, you really should just talk to your doctor about the problem. There are other medications you can try, but you may go through several, before finding one that w... ...

need a pain medication that doesn't have aspirin in it but is effectice i am taking oxycondone ## You can always talk to your doctor about prescribing generic Oxycodone as apposed to Percocet (Acetaminophen + Oxycodone). Aside from that option, generic Hydrocodone is a common substitute for Oxycodone. There is a decrease in potency however, so if you are on a high dose of Oxycodone you may want to taper that dose down a little and start with a slightly higher dose of Hydrocodone. More details about Hydrocodone and Oxycodone can be found by clicking on the links below: I hope this helps! ## Hello, I have been prescribed oxycodone 30mg tablets for my chronic low back pain due to a condition and I also suffer from arthritis but lately I'm having a problem getting it filled.

I can't find my prescription anywhere due to the new law , I was sounder ehat I could take instead of my hydrocodone/acetaminophen.. ## Hi Anthony, Sorry to hear about your situation. However, there are a number of different options on the market if you were to look for an alternative pain medication to Lortab (hydrocodone + acetaminophen); even if you were to just opt for another brand name or generic of the same medication. But just to name a few that you could ask your doctor about, there are: Percocet (oxycodone + acetaminophen) Percodan/Endodan (oxycodone + aspirin) Norco (hydrocodone + acetaminophen) Vicoprofen/Reprexain/Ibudone (hydrocodone + ibuprofen) Please also note that changing medications may not necessarily make it any easier to fill, especially if they are of the sam... ...

Substitute Tramadol For Hydroco Mg
2 Replies RSS
RAN OUT OF HYDROCOAPAP TAB 10-325MG, BUT HAVE TRAMADOL 50 MG, CAN I SUBSTITUTE?? ## Have you consulted your doctor? The Hydrocodone is a potent narcotic and the Tramadol is very mild, though it is distantly related, so you aren't likely to get the same effective pain relief that you do from the Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen tablet. ## If you are worried about your withdrawls, then yes you can. The max dose in 24 hours is 400mg. That's 8 pills. I did the same thing and took 200mg in the morning and 150 at night just to be safe. It will hold back the withdrawls and you will sleep comfortably. However, because its not an opiate, they will not "F" you up. You will not get HIGH from these. They do however trap seratonin for longer periods of time in your brain which for most peop... ...

hydrocodone/apap 7.5-500mg/15ml
3 Replies RSS
My doctor prescribed the liquid hydrocodone/APA 7.5-500mg/15ml to me for pain. The pharmacy label says to take 1 TEASPOON every 6 hours. This seems unusual given that this dosage seems to be most often given in 15ml doses as opposed to the 5ml in a teaspoon. I took it as the label recommended and honestly can't tell a bit of difference. Is it possible that the pharmacy mislabeled? Based on what I have read, I should be safe to 15ml at a time, right? I sure would like to take the full dose tonight so I can finally get some rest. ## What does the pharmacy list for the dosing amounts in the 5ml? Did you check to see if they substituted? They sometimes do that if they don't have the dosing form that your doctor prescribed in stock. Have you called the pharmacy to ask? If they just m... ...

hydrocodone 10 325 - Works well for me - Having trouble with Doctors prescribing it now.
5 Replies RSS
I have been on different dosages of Norco/Vicodin for about 5 years, since I recovered from a serious illness. Over time, my doctors and I have tried an enormous amount of different combinations of drugs to relieve the chronic pain along with the other symptoms. I finally found a combination that works for me, however I'm having difficulty with doctors prescribing the hydrocodone acetaminophen 10-325. Is this because of the rise in illegal sales of the drug? I used to be on 4 a day and now with the Lyrica and low dose Voltaren, 2 a day works excellent. I haven't been this productive, or felt even remotely useful for so long. Are there any substitutes equivalent to the Norco, or even close that doctors aren't so hesitant to prescribe? ## Hello, Jo! How are you? Yes, new regul... ...

How are you? White, oblong tablets with L544 on them are not Hydrocodone, nor any type of narcotic. These tablets are manufactured by Perrigo and they list them as containing 650mgs of Acetaminophen in an extended release formulation. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness and headache. Regarding expired medications, most tablets don't become dangerous, once they are expired, but they do tend to lose effectiveness, so you should dispose of them. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Can 4 year old 10mg hydrocodone still be taken and effective fo... ...
