Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone apap 5-325

vicodin

My precription was changed to Hydrocodone/Apap 10/650, 2 tablets every 6-8 hours as needed. Since starting the hydrocodone I have severe nausea and vomiting and never experienced this with the Endocet. The Endocet was scored and I only had to take 1/2 a pill when I needed one. I am wondering if this medicine is too strong and is it safer than leaving me on the Endocet? Thank-you, Beverly Follow Ups: Re: hydrocodone/apap SA, M.D.

She was very sympathetic. She wants me to start a taper program but she only gave me 12 of the 5/325's. I have already taken 8 of them. I got sick with myself for doing that. It was like I had no control. But I do have some more. I have 9 all together. I am tired of the pills. They are no fun. They are dangerous and expensive. They will destroy me. I have to find a way to have more power. I am going to start exercising today with my son.
I have been taking hydrocodone for about 2 1/2 years at an increasing rate, ending up with the 7.5 strength and about 18-20 per day. I do have severe arthitis pain and am a 51 year old woman. I have to cut down and recently cut down to 10 a day and have experienced physical and emotional withdrawal symptoms. I have some clonidine and don't know how much to take for withdrawal. What is the recommended dosage.
There have been years where I went the majority of most days only taking 1/4 of 1 5/500 a day, just to take the very edge off for a little while. I'm currently on about 1 5/325 daily. I'm wondering if anyone else has been on this medication for this long, or longer and knows anything about it causing cancer or anything. I've tried all sorts of alternative pain treatment, and a lot do work, which is why I don't have to take so much.
Thanks much. I decided to continue to go with hydrocodone. I saw my nurse today and she wrote me up for 5/325 norco. If the tylenol becomes a problem I will probably see my doctor to give Oxycodone a try without the tylenol. That sounds like a much more manageable way to adjust med dosages.
I was prescribed Hydrocodone/APAP (10/500) in December 2011. Never took more than the prescribed amount (3x Daily). I am now in day 5 since I quit cold turkey. The first 2 days were rotten. My whole body felt achy. Mostly in my lower back. I couldn't fall asleep. I finally fell asleep on the evening of day 2 and slept a good solid 9 hours. (Something I haven't done in quite a while.) When I woke up on day 3 I felt as if I had energy to burn.
may think you are trying to get more hydro by saying you need less apap. there are 5/325 norco as well. go for those.
If you can think of any thing i would like to see if you trid anything that i have tryed. The medes i have -Maxalt-mlt 5mg -Hydrocodone-apap 5-500 -750 Vicodin -Percocet 5-325 -Noce 10-325 Noting is working if you can think of anything pleas help!!
Around here apap is the devil, hehe. So, if you can talk to your Dr. about getting some 5/325 Norco. That way you can reduce your apap intake while not appearing to get more hydro. 30-40mg of hydrocodone each day for 6 months isn't all that bad...And if you are planning on taking more for upcoming surgeries I suggest reducing your intake. Let your tolerance come down.Try taking no more than 6 up until surgery. Work on taking only 4 some days.
Oxycontin is the extended release version of oxycodone which is immediate acting. Ideally you take the oxycontin on a scheduled basis for chronic pain so it is in your system continuously and then use the oxycodone for breakthrough pain which means when you need it. Neither has Tylenol in it but some pills such as Percocet or Roxicet are oxycodone mixed with Tylenol (also referred to as APAP.) Percodan is oxycodone with aspirin in it.
Basically none...Hydro is a generic name for Vicodin....it's all the same, just different drug companies, some generic, and some brand name....make sense?
In 2007 I sustained torn ligaments in my right ankle when a chair I was sitting on fell apart A year later I sustained a lower back herniation from a car accident. I was given Oxycodone (that's Percoset-right?) for the pain for both injuries (actually, I was still on the med when the second injury happened), to be taken one every 4 hours. I don't know the milligrams, but the bottle says "Oxycodone-APAP, 5-325 MG TAB. It is now 2010.
I lost count, actually. I think I was at about 6-12 5/325 norcos per day and no more than 4 325 somas. I am confused about the different strengts of the pills. I was on straight hydrocodone apap before going to norcos 6 months ago. I have been taking vikes in one form or another for a couple of years now. Thanks for your response.

When I got the pills the bottle said Hydroco/apap 5-325. To me it's no different then the Vicodin I was taking because that bottle said Hydroco/apap 5-500. The only difference is the pills of the norco have red spots in it and the others did not...My question is what is the difference and why do they seem to not work as well (the norco)??
10/750 - Maxidone 5/325 - Norco 5/325 7.5/325 - Norco 7.5/325 10/325 - Norco There's also that comoplete range above in generic form - and there's also liquid forms, etc... - so, the only difference is whom makes it - as they both have different percentages of hydro/apap (and occassionally asprin).
At that time, I felt ok as long as I kept on top of my meds and used ice regularly. I was and still am prescribed Hydrocodone APAP 5/325 1-2 tabs every 4-6 hours for pain and Valium 5mg every 8 hours for a muscle relaxant, both with 40 pills in each bottle. I have still been having problems with pain 1-1 1/2 hours before I can have more hydrocodone and so I am always sure to take the hydrocodone right at 4 hours and I always take 2 tabs.
I'm also on 50ccg/hr Fentanyl patch every 48 hrs. I was taking 5/325 hydro's every 4 hrs but it wasn't really working anymore. I'm just a little surprised that she upped the acetaminophen. Is that too high??
I know it's always concerning when a headache doesn't respond to medicine. At least when I went to the ER and they gave me a migraine cocktail, it worked! This Hydrocodone 5/325 mg APAP didn't touch it. Since I've had brain surgery years ago, then a brain bleed recently, it makes it hard for me to separate what's going on and what is coming from what. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Hydrocodone (Vicodin) does come in a 5/325 dose. You may want to request a lower dose of acetaminophen. On January 13th of this year the FDA "is asking" that all medications containing acetaminophen (apap) reduce the amount of that drug to 325mg per table...over the next three years. The recommendation is still not to exceed 4,000mg in a 24 hour period. The real problem comes from ppl who take other medications that contain apap dosage.
So, I started going to my father and stepmother's doctor where they live, and this Doctor gave me 2 scripts for Percocet 5/325 APAP two weeks in a row, and then switched it to the Oxycodone HCL 5mg since he figured [well, we both figured] I'd be on the pain medicine for quite some time. Also, just for some more information for you all... I've been receiving approximately 250 pills a month for the past 2 months now. Prior to this doctor, I wasn't receiving as many as he was giving out to me.
I'm on Lyica 150mg twice a day, along with Hydrocodone apap 5-325, and have taken Norflex and Lodine for my lower back for years. My problem is I can't walk more than 100 feet without a break. I start the work day walking up right and erect. That doesn't last long. I feel like I have a 10 lb weight on my neck, 20 lb weights on both hip pockets, and 20 lb on both thighs. I walk stooped over and can barely lift my legs more than an inch and can hardly breath.
hi dee, all vicoden is sold at generic prices. vicoden with reduced tylenol(325mg)is called "norco". norco comes in 3 strengths; 5/325 7.5/ 325 10/325 my rx calls for 1 or 2 tabs of 5/500, so my gi dr changed my rx to `10/325 and asked me to snap them in 1/2 so i can use 5/162. if i need 10mg of hydrocodone, the max apap is 325mg.
, and Norco 5/325 1 each night. My surgeon says if I still need these meds in one month, I need to see a pain specialist. I really have 2 questions: #1 - Am I abusing pain meds at this point? and #2 - Am I at risk for addiction to Ultram at this dose? I don't feel I'm a sissy about pain, but am starting to wonder, based on my doc's reaction...Thanks for your help.
I was first prescribed Oxycodone APAP 5/325 aprroximately a year and a half ago by a doctor due to my sever knee pain. Approximately three months ago, I started seeing a new doctor, and he took me off the Percocet that has Tylenol in it, and placed me on Oxycodone HCL 5mg; Which is Percocet without the Tylenol, basically. So here's my question to you, and please help me with this... I've been taking 8-10 of these pills a day, as directed by my doctor.
Yes, that would be 300mg of hydrocodone and 9750mg of APAP every. day. The night he had the cardiac arrest, I was the one who provided CPR. Many people told me I saved his life. I don't want for both he and I to have fought so hard for his life, only for me to turn around and destroy my own. I will die if I do not stop using. Already, I can see the difference in me. My skin is lusterless. My nails and hair look awful. I've lost weight but not in a healthy way. And my mind's a sieve.
They are all hydrocodone and APAP (tylenol) and they come in different strengths of both ingredients. I take Norco 10/325 for example. I think Watson makes at least a 7.5/325, if not also a 5/325, all with 325 APAP.
