Hydrocodone generic for vicodin

Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone generic for vicodin


Avatar m tn HydroCODONE is generic Vicodin. Maybe you didn't hear him say hydro, or he shortened it to the slang version "codone". Hope this helps!
Avatar f tn I have been taking vicodin 7.5/750 for several months and all the tylonel is starting to upset my stomach. Does anyone know the different strengths of vicodin so I can try something different?
590280 tn?1310087366 Percocet is Oxycodone and Vicodin ES is Hydrocodone.
Avatar f tn Percocet has oxycodone in it rather than the hydrocodone in Vicodin. Oxycodone is stronger than hydrocodone. In my experience, the oxy worked better and I had less side effects (upset stomach and "dumb" feeling).
Avatar f tn They are two different drugs. Hydrocodone is the generic of Vicodin. Oxyxodone is the same as Percocet without the Tylenol xomponent. I can't take hydrocodone due to itching. It's extreme, the itching is all over including itching in my ears and nose. Oxycodone is also stronger than Vicodin.
Avatar f tn My understanding is that they are both opiates, however, the Loratab (Vicodin/Hydrocodone) has NSAID (tylenoyl) included. That's why you may see a 5/325 or 10/500 on Loratab. It's 5mg of Loratab with 325mg of Tylenol.
317787 tn?1473358451 Acetaminophen is a less potent pain reliever (for mild-moderate pain) that increases the effects of hydrocodone. Vicodin is used to relieve moderate to severe pain. Vicodin is over kill for body pains from hep C treatment. Vicodin should also not be used by patients with cirrhosis of the liver as it can cause serious complications.
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 m tn ll make a comment before I refer you to our physicians forum. Hydrocodone IS Lortab or Norco or Vicodin. It has a lot of different brand names. Lortab is actually a mix of acetaminophen and hydrocodone. .... so you are taking Lortab...just the generic form of it. Here's a link to MedHelp's "Expert" Chronic Pain Forum. There is a physician on this site. http://www.medhelp.
Avatar n tn m pretty sure it is okay to take with coumadin. However, it would be a simple call to the Doc that has you on coumadin to confirm. Vicodin is hydrocodone and acetomenophin. it is the NSAID part of that I would want to confirm because it does affect clotting.
Avatar m tn The vicodin (hydrocodone) has acetaminophen as well. I'm not sure about the percoset, I've never had it before. BUT, if it weren't for the hydrocodone, I would not be able to work or get through even a day at home unless I lay curled up on the couch or in bed thanks to FMS and MPS. When I have bouts with extreme MPS in my back however, the pain pills don't help a whole lot. Just take the edge off barely. May God bless you with relief soon.
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.
450052 tn?1207660274 Norco is like Vicodin (Hydrocodone) 10 is the strength and 325 is the Tylenol. Percocet is stronger and Fire is right, it is oxycodone.
Avatar m tn i was taking 10mg of hydrocodone the yellow vic i was taking i guess to put it in right numbers i was taking 35mg of hydrocodone a night for the past 2 years now the question that i still dont have is....... is 35 mg of hydrocodone a night for 2 years bad?
Avatar m tn Hydrocodone also comes in different formulations with more tylenol like 10/500-10/750(I think that one is still out somone correct me if I am wrong please)but it is not stronger just because it says norco all you are doing is paying more for name brand vs paying for generic kind of like paying for kelloggs brand rice krispies vs store brand crisp rice.
Avatar m tn can i fill a prescription for percocet 9/29 even though ifilled a prescrition for vicodin on 9/27?
Avatar f tn Thank you :). I just get worried and was wanting more opionions just to make sure. Helps talking to mom's who are/have went threw this!
Avatar f tn Im not a doctor but ive been on both hydrocodone and butalbital (generic vicodin and fioricet) for about 2 years now without any interacting symptoms. Oftentimes if you think you might be experiencing problems your body will release epinephrine (adrenaline) which could be causing your symptoms. Try to do everything to relax the next time it occurs.

Avatar f tn I do not like to take Tylenol. (It causes quite a controversy here when I state what I take for pain,Z but here it goes.) I take aspirin. If I need something stronger (like when I had shoulder surgery last summer) I take Hydrocodone + aspirin. There are pills containing hydrocodone & aspirin just like Vicodin contain hydrocodone & tylenol.
Avatar m tn Medication like Vicodin, Norco, (hydrocodone), Tylox and Percocet (oxycodone) are all opioid analgesics that reduce pain for 4-6 hours. Thus, these medications are classified as short-acting or immediate release analgesics for mild-moderate pain. The same active opioids (hydrocodone, oxycodone) are available in long acting form. Hydrocodone is available in a new long acting formulation called Zohydro. Oxycodone is available in a long acting forumlation called OxyContin.
Avatar f tn If it is a small yellow oval pill and is scored in the middle so it can be broken in half it could be Norco or Hydrocodone 10mg with Acetaminophen 325mg. Hydrocodone with Acet. is also known as Vicodin. That is what I take and I usually tell others it is Vicodin because most do not know what Norco is. It's just easier to say that instead of explaining all the different brand names of the products with Hydrocodone and Acet.
Avatar n tn I have been taking vicodin 10's (5 a day) for a while, I have been off for 5 days now, I still have lower back pain and stomach cramps. How long will this last?
