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 Tramadol is a nightmare that you should avoid at all costs! It's a drug that is commonly prescribed to old dogs and I witnessed a neighbor get hooked on his dogs medication. His dog died in excruciating pain while he was high on the dogs Tramadols. It's a horribly addictive drug and getting off of it is worse than Vicodin or Oxys. Please, leave it alone.
Avatar f tn Determining a dosage of tramadol for dogs is an exercise in futility. As with people, if the dog has a history of seizures it is important to let your vet know this, and they will likely tell you about alternatives. While the dosage amounts vary from dog to dog, the tramadol dosage for dogs can be put into effect by using the dog’s weight as the determinant. The usual range is .5 - 1.8mg per pound.
Avatar n tn I can only imagine the frustration of dealing with a diurectic in a pet, but your veterinarian obviously thought the medication was needed at that dosing level. You can, though, post this question in the Ask A Vet Expert forum and get some opinions from veterinarians across the country. They would be able to help guide you with information you can share with your veterinarian at home and questions that you might ask your veterinarian. Good luck with your sick little one!
Avatar n tn Human grade fish oil supplements are made from exactly the same ingredients (usually!) as the ones for dogs. But check ingredients to make sure there is nothing in there that shouldn't be, and can harm dogs....such as xylitol etc. Pure fish oil is okay. But keep the capsules or bottle of oil out of the light, preferably in the refrigerator to prevent rancidity/free radicals, etc. There is some information, and information about dosages here: http://csu-cvmbs.colostate.
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 know you mean well but I find your reasoning flawed. In all honesty, vicodin, or any hydrocodone formulary that is mixed with acetaminophen is inherently more dangerous in equivalent doses than oxycontin because of the dangers of the acetaminophen to the liver. It's just impossible to make blanket statements about any opiate without a proper history and dosage levels.
Avatar f tn Back from the Vet's. Molly's breathing problem, cough, whatever, is NOT due to the congestive heart problem. Vet said fluid from around her heart and lungs had subsided thanks to the Enalapril. It's her larynx...or what's left of it. We knew it was a problem, but it's severe now...no consolation that it is common in small breed dogs, especially those with "smashed" noses.
Avatar n tn As for itching they can have antihistamines WITHOUT DECONGESTANTS in them. Ask you vet for dosing on any over the counter one such as benadryl (diphenhydramine) or Tavist (clemastine) or Chlortrimeton (chlorpheniramine) BUT most important get your pup on oral antibiotics and antifungals along with a good topical ear med like otomax or for really bad yeast clotrimazole drops. Also try cleansing the ear with a mixture of Domeboro solution.
605458 tn?1539228808 I know they like to use once a day dosing with dogs, mostly for owner compliance. Its easier to remember, easier on the dog, and easier on the pocketbook, too! Are you checking his blood sugar? What kind of diet is he on? I don't know a lot about diabetic dogs, but the subject really interests me.
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.
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 My dog had mange and the vet gave me this awful, awful smelling stuff to wash her in. He also had me wash my other two dogs in it even though they didn't have any symptoms. I don't remember what it was because it was 8 years ago, but it didn't work anyway. My sister, who is a beautician, told me to wash them with Nioxin. The shampoo she and I both use. She told me why, but I don't remember exactly.
Avatar f tn I never like the idea of Rimadyl for dogs. Carprofen (the active ingredient in Rimadyl), even though deemed safe for dogs, still can cause too many adverse reactions and side effects for my liking. But isn't it a cryin' shame that vets have to be careful what they prescribe for pets because the owners will take it?!?! Sometimes I wonder how the human race has come as far as it has with so many idiots here to carry it on. Sorry for the rant. Some things just tick me off.
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 Im sorry but are you serious? This is a pain managment forum for people that have chronic pain the amount of medication you were prescribed for 1 time use for dental pain is a very very small amount for someone who isnt prescribed opiates on a regular basis and is not opiate tolerant. You were given a one time prescription for dental pain. I dont know why your asking this on a chronic pain mgmt forum?
850029 tn?1238857820 I seriously doubt that a drop of listerine would do anything. Dosing anything in a dogs water is ineffective because of the immediate dilution, and lack of controlled uptake. That is why this Dr. Franks Pet Pain Spray is such a joke. Anything sprayed in a dog's water become so dilute and no one can predict or guarantee A) dog will dring, B) dog will get an effective does and C) tomorrow that water should be thrown out and replaced with new.
Avatar n tn or anything to be terribly worried about, and will resolve itself naturally once the hormone surge balances back to normal -it can be a trigger for other problems later in life, in middle-age, or older, possibly even mammary cancer. The definite way to stop it happening in the future is to have her spayed. That would also give her good protection against any possible health threats later. Unless, of course, you want to breed her.
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!!
430403 tn?1204077939 Of these, Valium and Klonopin are best suited for tapering since they come in tablet form. Librium is also an excellent detox benzo, but comes in capsules, making it hard to taper the dose. Ativan or Xanax should only be used if you can't get one of the others. 2. Imodium (over the counter, any drug or grocery store). [generic brand anti-diarrheal is fine. Don't take it unless really uncomfortable] 3. L-Tyrosine* (500 mg caps) from the health food store.* [See Warning] 4.
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 m tn We recently pulled three dogs from animal control, and within 24 hrs all of them had kennel cough. The puppy has been sick with kennel cough for over a month. We've had her on clovomox, and then we had her on cefadroxil. We've had her chest x-rayed and she doesn't have pnemonia or anything more serious. The vet also had her do a round of panacur in case it was a lung fluke. We had her on hydrocodone, and that didn't even curb her cough.
Avatar f tn hi again - i've been in and out of here the past two months. 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.
