Common Questions and Answers about How much hydrocodone in hycodan


Avatar f tn i was at 100 mgs of hydrocodone/which is the drug in ur syrup/ for 4 yrs and my physical wds were over in 4 days..went back to work day 5...exercising helped..Moving, Medhelp and Meetings is how I made it...Move even if u do not feel like it There is usually 5 mgs of hydro in one tsp of the cough surup..some have 6 mgs. so however many tsps u did daily would approximate ur use amount if u multiply it by 5 another thing in ur favor is 6 months is not a long time...

Avatar f tn Hi I have been on hycodan (5mg of hydrocodone in a single 5ml dose) for my bad cough from my sinus infection. I have been taking the medication for 2 weeks almost everyday. Maybe 3 days where I didn't take any at all. Most days I took only 5ml once but some I took 5 ml twice a day and a few days I took 10 ml twice a day. I am going off of it after tonight and I am wondering if I should expect any withdrawal symptoms and how bad they might be.
Avatar f tn Hi-I've been reading everyone's post now for a couple of days & everyone seems so supportive. I am on day 2 of codeine withdrawal. It started legit w/ Tylenol 3 from my PC dr for migraines. After a year he wasn't comfortable giving them to me anymore. I was taking 1-3 a few days a week. I went to a neurologist and she put me on a preventative w/ a script for breakthrough headache (Tylenol 3 again) 10 tabs 2x a month. Last year I fought the flu & was prescribed Hycodan.
Avatar m tn It's possible. How much were you taking per day?
Avatar m tn I was given hycodan (hydrocodone) cough syrup. A doctor told me to take it when I have trouble sleeping as well as when I have a bad cough. I have had it for about six weeks, and I take a single dose two, sometimes three nights a week. Is it possible to develop a dependency or addiction when you only take it three times a week for a couple of months?
Avatar f tn For staging in general, if there is already proof of metastatic disease (in this case the presence of cancer in the liver and adrenals), some doctors would opt to limit other tests when symptoms do not dictate. Hence, I would assume that she presented without any bone pain during the initial staging. This is a practical thing to do, as the treatment recommendations are unlikely to change if there is bone metastasis found on a bone scan.
Avatar f tn @petro I have been taking hydrocodone or hycodan/tussigon which is hydrocodone and something else. Somedays I take 25 mg sometimes more. I never feel the rush only do them to feel normal. I did go to my doctor today and told him I was taking 10mg at a time, I sometimes take 15 but mostly 10 so thats what I said. He wants me to only take 5mg 3 times a day and call him on Friday so he can see how I am doing and tell me the next dose for the week and call them in.
Avatar n tn i think that you need to have a talk with your doctor, tell them that you need something non-narcotic to control your asthma (actually, he should have d/c the hycodan syrup when the asthma was diagnosed) theres alot of really great new meds to control your breathing problems. second, not sure how much you were taking...but day you should start feeling better sooner than later, but, yeah...that's all normal withdrawal, keep on keeping on!
Avatar f tn AND, I was given a Rx for Hycodan syrup, which, as we all know, has hydrocodone in it. But my husband gave it to me when I needed it, and I took it only as ordered. I flushed the rest of it. I still feel like I cheated, though. But, I'm getting past that. I know it's not abusing or cheating if you take a medication like it is ordered and if you REALLY need it. Anyway, I just wanted to check in. 121 days! Wow!
1064524 tn?1257199755 I did know about the cough formulas of hydrocodone but have never seen it used for pain relief alone. Hycodan does come in a tablet but in all forms it contains an antitussive. Many ppl can not take the antitussive long term for numerous reasons. I have allergies and it would interfere with the medications I take for those. And Lawless, Red is correct. six doses of 750mg of acetaminophen (apap) is above the recommended daily intake. I'll bet your medical provider just made a mistake.
Avatar f tn I do not even need to have it in the bedroom at night (but, l do not have heating in this room), only in the lounge in the evening where the heating is too drying.
371980 tn?1276740809 It's very obvious that you are extremely concerned with maintaining your clean status and not going back to the narcotics. As long as you keep your eye on the goal, which is getting better, you'll do great! The main thing right now is for you to get better for your little girl. Just tell yourself right from the beginning that as soon as the cough is bearable, you're going to stop taking the cough stuff, and then do just that.
558096 tn?1255887002 Well the 1/2 life of hydrocodone is about 2 hours which means basically that 1/2 of the hydrocodone is metababilzed in that period of time. The rest metabolizes over the next 36 hours. Of course this is always dependent on the persons metabolic rate. Also there is a dependency on how much someone has taken of how long a period.
Avatar n tn I have neuropathy and I take gabapentin thr5ee times a day along with hydrocodone so this means that I take three and sometimes four times a day the hydrocodone, can this be too much for my liver?
1198664 tn?1368647812 The most I have ever done was like 2 1/2 at a time and about 2 hours after a oxycotin 20. that was the most. So how much is a lot? Maybe my habbit of 30 mg a day of perc's was not that bad.
Avatar n tn I am taking 2 500 mg tablets of Hydrocodone at least every Friday for aches and pains not necessarily in my knee for which it is prescribed. Do you think I am in danger of being addicted to hydrocodone? This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/433129'>Can I get genital herpes through my mouth?</a>.
Avatar f tn ive been taking hydrocodone for 4 yrs and in the last 6 months i got up to 15-20 hydro 10's a day! didnt like the dependency anymore so i decided to quit cold turkey, im on day 5 now and i still feel pretty weak and at night my legs ache and i toss n turn from the pain and insomnia, im highly allergic to vallum. xanax or any of that type,,, so my question is,,, has any body taken this high of dosage and for this amount of time?
Avatar n tn Can taking too much hydrocodone cause inflamation around your heart or other serious heart trouble
Avatar n tn I have been prescribed hydrocodone/acetaminophen 7.5/750. I usually break them in half or take 1 throughout the day as prescribed but have been told to take two in severe instances and did so before going to sleep tonight. At one point I woke up and was in pain and took two more without thinking or realizing that it hadn't been much more than an hour. Within an hour the pain was gone but I have been awake ever since with worry over taking so much acetaminophen.
Avatar m tn I am going to see my Dr. today and I have been perscribed hydrocodone in the past to treat chronic lumbosacral pain. How is Oxycodone 5mg compared to Hydrocodone? I take Hydrcodone 5/500 APAP. Is Oxycodone a good alternative to Hydrocodone? What are your experiences?
Avatar n tn no, hydrocodone is vicodin. Morphine sulfate is the active ingredient in morphine. If you are worried about a possible reaction to the medication, I would speak to your local pharmacists. I'm not sure if hydrocodone and morphine are in the same family of drugs. I know vicodin and percocet are in a similar family (due to codine), but morphine is much different. refer to this website.
