Hydrocodone and tylenol 3

Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone and tylenol 3


Avatar f tn Can anyone tell me the difference between tylenol 3 and hydrocodone, I understand the hydrocodone is a synthetic of codeine, but as far a strength of tylenol 3 vs one 5mg vicodin? What is the addiction factor, what is worse codeine or hydrocodone? Just curious..
221387 tn?1210936658 Tylenol 3 is also addicitve it is a weaker opiate than Loritab is.. but its still codiene.. Do you have a doctor that can help you get off these pills.. find a addiction specialist..something like that.. How many Loritab are you taking per day??
Avatar f tn I had a tooth pulled a few days ago and I was prescribed Tylenol 3. I know it has codeine so will my baby go through withdrawls?
Avatar n tn )APAP/CODEINE TAB 300-30MG. Any info would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn I found the only way I could sleep was to take a Tylenol PM (still had the chills and sweets). Well I have stopped taking the Tylenol PM and can sleep on my own at night comfortably without waking up and having restless leg syndrome, sweats and back pain. During the day my back does start to hurt and I have been taking only Aleve or Tylenol. It only takes the edge off. I still feel like it would be easy to take a pain pill and feel no pain again.
Avatar f tn I had tooth pain er gave tylenol 3 to me he gave me 10. I called and asked my doc if it was okay to take and he said yes just dont take more then prescribed or more then recommend. I only took when they hurt really bad. Ended up only taking 3 of them.
Avatar n tn I also take 12 or so Tylenol and 6-8 Advil a day for 3 years now in order to deal with the chronic pain in my back and leg. But I want to try and stay away from the hydrocodone because obviously I can't take it like I should. I really do pray for all of you out there who are going through this type of nightmare. God can truly help, though. And He is always there, even when we fall, He always picks us back up. I too worry about liver damage from 4 straight years of multiple Tylenol use.
Avatar f tn I will start by taking 5 pills for 3 days, 4 pills for 3 days, 3 pills for 3 days, 2 pills for 3 days and then and optional one pill for 3 days. I skipped the first part and started with 4 pills for 3 days. I only feel a little nausous at times. However, once the medication starts to leave my body will it become worse and worse? Or is this method of detoxing your body the best? Also is it true the more you take the harder the withdraws are.
Avatar m tn I had a minor surgery 2 weeks ago and have been using 40 to 50 mg of hydrocodone the entire time. I am wondering if I will have withdrawal symptoms, if I should try to taper off, or if it's ok to just stop immediately. I have heard that withdrawal is very painful and I am nervous.
Avatar f tn except last week when i went for my appointment i told him i was in alot of pain and he said to make sure i only take tylenol until i have the baby.i went in planning on showing him what i was taking for my back.
2126606 tn?1346348724 This puts patients at risk for developing serious, and even fatal, health issues. Last year at the WAISMANN METHOD®and Domus Retreat, we treated about the same number of patients for addictions to Norco as we did for Heroin, OxyContin or methadone. Although not completely surprised, I was appalled to find out that many of these patients developed a dependency to the drug after they were given a prescription for a very small injury.
268911 tn?1213748381 - it took 3 months to heal it up! I have taken both Tylenol 3's and Norco which is hydrocodone and acetaminophin - neither have affected my stomach at all, thankfully. If it's acetaminophin w/ the narcotic it's pretty gentle on the stomach but you just can't take too much because then it affects the liver! (always a trade-off) I have personally found the Norco to be stronger than the Tylenol 3's. In my experience it would seem like I'd need 2 T3's for the same pain relief as one Norco.
Avatar m tn 30 or so, but went to see one of my best friends and that helped a lot. Managed to fall asleep around 1am, but woke up at 6am, and life hit me like a truck. Instant runs, instant hot flashes when covered up and cold sweats when not covered up, and a small headache. Took half a xanax and managed to fall back asleep 2 hours later. Well now I'm completely awake, hot flashes are a little worse, no cold flashes yet, and a small headache.
Avatar n tn Of the latest Hydrocodone 7.5/750 dose (aka Vicodin ES), he was taking 3 in the AM, 3 in the PM. On the days between his script renewal, he would take 4 Tylenol 4 w/codeine (2 AM, 2 PM) to get him through to his next script (which normally took about 5 to 6 days - it was a 15 day script that he finished in 9 to 10 days). After approaching him, he said he would quit, cold turkey. About the 6th day, he began to have severe pain in his neck & shoulder (I even had to rush him to the ER).
5298012 tn?1366233919 Before you do think about the people who have died all ready from this.I have had 8 back surgeries,and a knee replacement.I have been on hydrocodone every since 2002 im not addicted.I kno that pain well make you wanna jump in a river.I pray to GOD all the time he helps me through it.keep up the good work you can do it.Keep the faith.
Avatar f tn and Tylenol #3 does not contain caffiene.
Avatar f tn Tylenol is safe to take , my dr said if necessary to take medicine then take tylenol . But dont do it often.
Avatar m tn you are really looking at 60mg of codeine being a satandard replacement for the 7.5 hydrocodone. That would be two of the tylenol three's....You also won't pick up any extra acetaminophen if that is a consideration, you will actually drop just a hundred mg or so of acetaminophen by using the codeine's.....let me know if they make you itch a lot....
Avatar n tn I have Hydrocodone and Tylenol with Codeine #3. My story is a long one, but right now I just need to know which will help with my pain more. Any help would be appreciated!! Thanks!!!
Avatar f tn She was not happy that I even KNEW what to ask for. (I'm almost 60 years old and not stupid--I know Tylenol #3 is a step down from Norco 7.5). She was VERY hesistant and asked me why I couldn't just quit taking the Norco. (DUH? Withdrawal, for one thing) She did a step down list--and wrote the scrip and sent me on my way. A week or so after I filled it, I realized she'd shorted me 21 pills, from the step down she'd written out, to what she "prescribed".
Avatar f tn The 10mg comes in 325 tylenol also.If you like your doc and have a good open relationship talk with him and see about the 5/325 or call the pharm and ask if they still have it as an option and ask him to switch you.You could run the risk of changing to a doc who you might not like as well or might find one you like better. But I hope I have provided you with some medication options that help.
1027211 tn?1252011031 My friend dropped the script off at his usual Rite Aid (where he also fills his darvocet) and roughly an hour or two later returned, only to be denied the Tylenol 3s. From what he's told me, the pharmacist told him that he should still have darvocet and that that should be sufficient. My friend does NOT have any more darvocet because he had lent several to his mother and taken a few more than usual as of late because of the pain.
Avatar n tn Sometimes I'd run out and have to w/d till I could get more. Anyway, I had surgery about a week ago and the dr put me on Tylenol 3. I still had about 5 of the 10/325's left. I'm done with those and I'm on the 3's now. I still have pain from the surgery but it's NOTHING like w/d from the years of the taking of the pills. I will get through it and SO WILL YOU MY FRIEND!!!!! Stay strong. 1 day at a time.
Avatar f tn We all have aches and paind from time to time and if you are doing well, then I would just stay focused and get rid of the percs. Hope this helps! Good luck!
Avatar f tn I have been addicted to hydrocodone for about 3 years, i could not take it anymore and quit cold turkey.. and have been hydro free for since jan 23. im slowly feeling better, but i just can not sleep!! its driving me crazy. im tired and i will just lay in bed all night hoping to GOD i can just doze off. but i may get two hours max every night and its wearing me down. i also take cymbolta for my severe anxiety and depression and kloapin 0.5 mg about every other day.
Avatar n tn does anyone know if there is any similarity between tylenol 3 or4 and vicoden?what about the symptoms of w/d from tylenol w/codeine?
