Hydrocodone generic for lortab

Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone generic for lortab


Avatar f tn The word "Lortab, Vicodin" are just trademarked names for the generics (hydrocodone and oxycodone)...also, those opiates can be combined with other analgesics instead of tylenol....example, "Percodan" is oxycodone with aspirin. Sorry...hope I didn't confuse you...but while the drugs are very similar, and both strong opiates, there are a lot of differences, which people do not always realize.
699217 tn?1323438700 I believe that oxycodone is the generic name for Roxicodone, which is also obviously percocet without the tylenol. Oxycontin and oxycodone are the same thing, EXCEPT oxycodone is a quick release tablet, and oxycontin is a slow release of the same med. Hydrocodone is the ingredient in Vicodin and Lortab. Although they are all narcotics, vicodin and lortab are lesser strength than the oxy's and morphine.
Avatar n tn Hydrocodone is the generic form for Vicodin, they are one in the same. Not sure how long it stays in your system. I had to have a drug test for a new job and told them ahead of time that I take hydrocodone, they were fine with it and it did not show up on the test anyway. Sorry but I don't remember how many days I was off of it. I work for doctors and will find out for you.
Avatar f tn Percocet is the brand name of the generic drug oxycodone and acetaminophen and Vicodin is a brand name of the generic drug Hydrocodone and acetaminophen. Both oxycodone and Hydrocodone is a narcotic drug and are often used in combination with acetaminophen or APAP, a no steroidal anti inflammatory drug which helps in increasing their potency.
Avatar f tn Hey there Hope ur feelin better. Just wanted to say I have tried and failed CT and weaning so many times....Most recently I tried weaning w/suboxone. I can't wean. If you have self control then maybe you can? I have went CT from ultram hydro's and xanax successfully before. It's tough but doable. Get things in order. Ur responsibilities catch up around the house @ wk. Buy some things you'll need like crackers and juices, Imodium,aleve.
Avatar f tn We're a thyroid disorders forum, so I have to ask, if this is a thyroid related question? It doesn't appear to be, though RA is an autoimmune disease, as are some thyroid issues. Have you been tested for any thyroid abnormalities? My suggestion would be hyperthyroidism, but if that were absent, I'd talk to the doctor about the pain med. I did some checking on the Loratab and can't find it; are you sure it's "Loratab" and not "Lortab"?
Avatar f tn They are all hydrocodone from different manufactureres and with varying amounts of acetaminophen.
478403 tn?1266546009 I had to go back on the valium and then my pcp weaned me off of it and it took 4 months and then I still had some lingering symptoms but they finally went away. I was only on the valium for 14 months and have been on the Lortab for 3 years at 6 a day. Can any one here please help me with some information? I'm about to go crazy! Thanks for listening to me ramble. God bless you all and your families too.
Avatar n tn What dose did your dr give you of norco? 5/325, 7.5/325, 10/325? Norco is a different name brand of lortab with the same narcotic in it as lortab & vicodin which is hydrocodone. Norco has LESS tylenol in it....which is where the 325 comes in. Usually when you get your lortab it probably says hyrdocodone 10/500...so he is just reducing the amt of tylenol b/c it is hard on your liver. Hope that helped you some!
Avatar m tn Having a very similar problem as well, testing positive for hydrocodone. The doc says it has to be lortab or dilodid -which I am absolutely not taking either of! (I mean heck, I can't take the whole doses of what they give me most of the time) I'm not taking codeine, though, but am taking Percocet, Opana ER, Lorzone, diazepam, Lyrica, & occasionally a Lidoderm patch.
Avatar f tn I posted a couple of weeks ago looking for advice to get off my lortab...by the way, thanks to all for all of the kind replies. Anyway, I am having surgery on May8th and I have been very open with all of my doctors about my addiction and that I am just trying to get through my final surgery and then I am already approved to enter a 30 treatment program.
Avatar f tn Via-BlackBerry 8530- I have been abusing lortab 10/500 for about 5 months. (10-15 a day). I have a script for 15-50mg tramadol. Should I use the tramadol to help ease the lortab comedown? Will it even help? Or should I go cold turkey? I've read other posts about tramadol, and don't know which way to go. I do know I want my life back, and I can't afford the down time of the painful withdrawls I get. Experienced advice would be greatly helpful.
Avatar f tn Norco is the same active ingredient as Vicodin and Lortab (hydrocodone), but the Tylenol (acetaminophen) content is lower at 325mg than the 500mg in Lortab and Vicodin.
8487796 tn?1398343727 testing positive for hydrocodone. The doc says it has to be lortab or dilodid -which I am absolutely not taking either of! (I mean heck, I can't take the whole doses of what they give me most of the time) I'm taking taking Percocet, Opana ER, Lorzone, diazepam, Lyrica, & occasionally a Lidoderm patch. This same thing happened to me about a year & a half ago, at a different doc's office, using a different pharmacy at the time.... I don't understand. How can this be?
Avatar n tn I have been taking hydrocodone for years as directed (3-4 7.5 mg/day). I am in the job hunting process and would like to know how long it will take to clear myself for the drug test? Please help! Thanks!
Avatar f tn You will likely experience a very strong desire to keep taking the medication, and an inner restlessness for days that cries out for hydrocodone. I strongly encourage you to stick with your plans though-- the cravings WILL go away, probably in 2-3 weeks (the worst of it will be over after a few days). By the end of a month you'll feel 100% better.
Avatar f tn ve read and been told by my pain management doctor, vicodin/lortab (hydrocodone) is generally safe in pregnancy. Although they really haven't done enough research into it, if it is neccessary in pregnancy, they generally consider it safer than some other meds. I have to take stronger pain meds every day and am hoping for the best, myself. From what I've read, it's relatively safer than the stress and agony caused by constant pain. I hope she gets some relief, too!

Avatar f tn I figured if I took them for only a week then I should have the Lortab out of my system by then. Any insight would be appreciated.
Avatar f tn My mother has had hep c for about 4 years now. She just recently got put on "the list". She is trying to stop smokeing, but she has a problem with takeing lortab. I was wondering if anyone knows if lortab is bad for her to be on. I mean I know it can't be good but her doc is giving them to her and knows she has HCV. If anyone could give me some advice, I'd be greatful. By the way, I new here and I'll try and give some advice as well. Thanks!
Avatar f tn For example, Vicodin can be 5mg of hydro and 500mg of tylenol as can Lortab. Or Vicodin can be 10mg of hydro and 325 mg of tylenol and so can Lortab. So they only way one will be stronger than the other as if the Vicodin was 5/500 and the Lortab is 10/325. I hope I have been clear in anwsering your question. If I haven't been please let me know.
Avatar n tn is it harmful to take three lortab 10's a day for approximately twwo and ahalf months?
Avatar f tn At about 18, for the FMS, I was switched to Lortab (Hydrocodone) 5/500. I am still to this day on Lortab 5/500, though since I was about 20, it has been no more than one 5/500 mg tablet per day to help me sleep through the pain. Normally I take between 1/2 to 3/4 of a pill. Additionally, I am on Celexa.
528396 tn?1217526013 I took lortab 10's for what seemed like 4EVER. But, i also take/took MsContin 3x a day along w/ it. My dr. switched my meds recently due to my tox screen showed i do NOT absorb hydrocodone (lortab/vicodin). Maybe u don't absorb it either?! THE next step up for pain control is PERCOCET/PERCODAN (oxycodone 5mg. generic name)! I take 3 percodan's (w/ NO tylenol) a day ALONG w/ 3 MsContin 15mg. NOTHING gets me out of pain. BUT it helps EASE the pain.
Avatar f tn I've been taking hydrocodone/Lortab and tramadol for about 5-6 years, all doctor-prescribed for chronic pain. I've never taken more than prescribed over the life of each refill, although I sometimes take extra on worse days and less on others to make up for it. After doing some research about the w/d symptoms, I wonder how much of my chronic pain is due to fibromyalgia and psoriatic arthritis, and how much is due to w/d symptoms?
