Avatar f tn This is the first time I've ever tried this I took 5 i took 5 hydrocodone/acetaminophen 5-325 and I'm worried about over dosing. Any answers you have can help me. I will never try this again. They weren't mine I took them to get high. I'm really scared.
Avatar n tn I already get 90 hydrocodone a month. I will go to a pain management clinic and pay for 90 more hydrocodone a month soon. I already told my primary care doctor I run out early but he said he could only write me 90 a month. I will pay for the other 90 myself without my insurance company acknowledgement.
Avatar f tn I have severe Gastroparesis and am on GJ feeding tubes. I was in pain management, but got kicked out because hydrocodone wasn't showing up in my system. I did a DNA test and I don't metabolize opioids and with all the liquids that run through my body with feeds, I feel like it dilutes my urine. Is there anyone that can help me document or verify this. I'm distraught.
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?
1233941 tn?1267735211 I also noted some commenting that they are dosing two - three times per day. I am not a doctor and cannot recommend dosing, but the halflife with sub is nearly 40 hours and dosing once per 24 hours is more than enough, taking more than once per days is a mute point because it does not help with the drug taking behavior what so ever. I started out on 24mg from a 200mg+ hydrocodone habit. I quickly worked my way down to 16, then 8mg and took between 2 - 4 mg/day for several years.
Avatar f tn Most of us have a hard time especially if we have access to pills. I had do give mine to my Mom to dispense. Any amount you reduce at your regular dosing time is a start. Talk to a doctor.
Avatar f tn Hello. I am trying to wean myself off of my pain meds. I'm doing this because twice in two years I've had my pain doctor suddenly shut down and the terror of not finding a other one in time. I did find one in time but on the first visit asked him to lower my Fentanyl patch from 75 MCG to 50 MCG. I've also reduced my hydrocodone on my own down to one 10/325.
984658 tn?1248808740 Hello all... I am now on my second day of coming off hydrocodone 10/325. I was taking anywhere from 10 to 15 a day and absolutely had to have them! I would wake up and immeadiately chew 4 of them just to wake up! I chewed them so they would get into my system much faster.... I have read many answers on this forum and some have been very helpful. I don't know the best way to detox from home. I do not have any med insurance and have been taking these little jewels for about 1 year.
Avatar f tn 5 mg oxycodone. 2.5 mg hydrocodone. Prescribed both. One for wisdom teeth, one for chronic headaches. Thanks!
Avatar m tn how is the best way to take hydrocodone/acetaminophen 10-325 to get the most relieve. I am severly disable from post polio and scoliosis . total spinal degeneration from being given bone donated by a affected person at least 25 years ago. I have trouble going to sleep with the pain . I am up most of the night. How can I get this to work better or should as the dr for something else. I have been on 4 a day of about a month?
Avatar n tn I just found out that i am pregnant(2months) and I take hydrocodone 7.5/500 once a day..i know its not alot but ive been taking it for 2 1/2 years for chronic pain...i need to stop for the sake of my babies health..Im affraid my baby will be addicted and have problems....Ill take any advice!!
Avatar f tn about a month ago i was prescribed suboxne for getting off of hydrocodone - about 6 tabs (10/500) day. I got my prescription, only 1/2 of it bcs of insurance problems. I used it, actually taking much less than doctor had told me. I was doing well, and had quit the subs within two weeks of getting my first prescription. I've since began the hydrocodone again, really serious about wantint to quit (take for pain) but won't go into all that got me into starting again.
Avatar n tn i have been on hydrocodone for about four years. i take them for severe pain in my knees. i usually take about 5 per day on average but some days the pain is worse than others and i may take as much as seven 10/500. i want so badly to go to someone to stop taking them but am afraid my dr will shun me. without the hydro i would be unable to work. i am currently taking ultram and 1/2 tab of hydrocodone 4x daily. i try not to take it at night.
Avatar f tn Call your local pharmacist. We at MedHelp are not allowed to give out dosing instructions. Your pharmacist will be able to tell you exactly how to dose the medications. If your regular pharmacy is closed on Sunday, call any pharmacist availabe at your local grocery store or drug store such as Walgreens, CVS, or RiteAid.
Avatar f tn Kindly, Concerned, keep me posted on your progress PS/dont be embarrassed about the addiction to hydrocodone--we are only human, and living with pain of anykind is torture.
Avatar m tn She could possibly be getting oo much by dosing in that manner. Even though hydrocodone is short acting you could develop a toxic serum level by taking enough by the hour after the 2 pill loading dose........take a look at how you dose..........and the mint tea is a great idea - get her some of that right before bedtime and she will sleep well.......
Avatar f tn I am using Hydrocodone for breakthrough pain. I am getting a refill of the patch and was wondering if it is okay to ask for a refill of the breakthrough meds. I don't know how often i should be getting that refilled and don't want to alarm them. I have been using the breakthrough med quite regularly as we are still trying to adjust the patch levels. I was wondering if they would think it odd to need a refill after a month or if that was normal.
Avatar f tn So I have an oxycodone problem/addiction. The past month or so I've been teeter toddle ring between using an not.. I really want to stop completely and have recently been attending NA. I have substantially reduced for this binge to about 15-25 a day/ at a time. For the purposes of this question lets assume I've been dosing this way for 2 weeks consecutively. How long will it take me to pass the drug test?
Avatar m tn i have severe back pain and i have been on hydrocodone 10mg for abt 3 yrs i am ashamed to admit that i have a tolerance that is out of this world i take between 10-12 pills at 1 time at least 4 xs a day my stomach is killing me my side hurts all the time my pee is the color of rust yet i continue.
356054 tn?1218552475 MARY where have you been? Missed ya girl!! Ok I was taking 10-12 10/650 hydrocodone a day. I am on day 3 of the w/d's from that. I feel pretty darn good considering I should be in hell right now. So do you think it matters if I take a total of 8 mgs a day broken up 3 times a day 4mg in morning,2 mg at lunch and 2 at 6:00 pm. I think I need a little more right now because of the w/d from the hydro.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with secondary autoimmune adrenal insufficiency in December. I feel lousy most of the time, have chronic abdominal pain and abnormal stools, and feel best flat on my back...which doesn't work well for someone who works 12 hour shifts in a busy ER while selling one house, building another, and has 2 teens and a disabled husband, lol. Here's my question. If a person has say diabetes, their meds are based on their blood sugars.
Avatar f tn If you are on triple therapy for genotype 1 and undetectable then your doc is following AASLD protocol for anemia management Anemia developed among recipients of both PIs. Hemoglobin decreases below 10 g/dL (grade 2 toxicity) occurred in 49% of patients who received a BOC regimen compared to 29% of those who received the SOC regimen, whereas 9% had a hemoglobin decline of <8.5 g/dL (grade 3 toxicity).
