Hydrocodone generic name

Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone generic name


Avatar n tn I think your basic Vicodin is 5 MG of codine and 500 MG acetamenaphine (Tylonel) then there's 7.5 and 10 MG codine w/325 acetamenaphine-called Norco The generic name if Hydrocodone....there are different generic makers Watson, Qualitest, etc are some of the pharmaceutical companies. You might want to try the brand name...I've found for me I do not get a happy feeling from brand name Norco like I do with the generic.
Avatar m tn Thanks for all the advice guys so far so good I'll keep you up to date on how things are going until this is over. Saw a friend tonight who was able to give some really helpful advice as well. SWIM might just ride his bike tomorrow as long as he doesn't feel like crapping himself every 10 minutes.

Avatar n tn I have been taking hydrocodone for about 2 1/2 years at an increasing rate, ending up with the 7.5 strength and about 18-20 per day. I do have severe arthitis pain and am a 51 year old woman. I have to cut down and recently cut down to 10 a day and have experienced physical and emotional withdrawal symptoms. I have some clonidine and don't know how much to take for withdrawal. What is the recommended dosage.
Avatar n tn Thanks! Do you know the name of an over the counter pain killer? I'm going to try to get up and go to the store. This is horrible! I don't know how I ever let myself get this way!

Avatar n tn I started taking hydrocodone because of herniated disks, and I stayed with them because it really gave me something to look forward to. That time of the day that you know you can feel relaxed and just kick back. And the other, various and many reasons such as energy, self-esteem, mind-numbing, getting away from it all, etc. I had a bad last 6 months and really couldn't deal, so I went overboard on my pill consumption.
Avatar f tn if you can scour your car for a few bucks' worth of change, I would recommend buying Imodium. Generic name is Loperimide. That is probably the cheapest thing and it helps the most. Just don't do what I did, haha...don't take it past the need and end up in the ER with constipation. Talk about a chunk of change! Seriously, though, if you take about 6 a day in the worst of it, you will feel better, and it's cheap. At least in the U.S. Not sure where you are.
Avatar f tn I was Givin 10 325 of tthe ip204 of oxy them my pharmacy got endocet that has e713 on one side and 10/325 om the other let me tell you they work a lot better so I call pharmacy and tell them to order them for me it is made by endo pharmaceutical just like percocet each ccontains 9mg of oxy were a generic can be aloud to either be 30 percent over or 30 percent under where a brand name has to be with in 10 percent over or under but figure it out how do the generic s make there money there 30 perce
Avatar m tn I did get about 15 pills labeled Hydrocodone/Homatropine, which is apparently a generic for Hydrodan. It had about the same effect as Tussionex, although not quite as good. Maybe those pills were only 7.5 mg of hydrocodone, rather than 10. Does everyone who takes hydrocodone build up a tolerance for it, so that they need to take more and more, or can some people take 1 pill a day for an extended period of time?
Avatar m tn The ladies are right. Norco is the brand name. I am prescribed Norco 7.5/325 but I get Hydrocodone 7.5/325. The 325 is the amount of tylenol they put in it. In my case, we do it so that I can break them in half and take additional tylenol if I don't need as much narcotic and want to just take an extra tylenol with it. You should definately be able to get the generic though...
Avatar f tn My husband is getting prescriptions of 60-90 #10 hydrocodone a month. His typical pattern is to take large amounts (6-8 pills at a time) during a 7-10 day period. He will then wait until he gets his prescription refilled. He is experiencing constipation, hemmorhoids, diarrhea, drinks water excessively, and his moods fluctuate wildly. I recognize I cannot make him stop, but I'm trying to figure out how to take care of myself and the kids during this.
Avatar n tn Help..... I am addicted to hydrocodone. I have taken some time off work to get off of this runaway train. It has affected my life totally. I have to do this myself at home.I have heard to get plenty of Malox for my stomach and some aleve or advil, some people even say take meds to calm you through the process such as xanax or valium (just to get over the initial withdrawals).
Avatar n tn Hello, my name is Kent and I'm also a mom to 3 kids and I know how hard it is believe me, I was up to snorting 4 80 mg oxycontin a day. I used to take so many pills nothing got to me, it was like who cares if the house is trashed I need to find some pills! I thought I was a good mom at the time because I was the "cool" mom who let all the kids play at my house. That was because my kids would play with them and leave me to my isolation. I wanted everyone to just leave me alone.
1268176 tn?1270665751 I'm in some amount of pain most days. I am perscribed hydrocodone (generic Lorcet 10/650, 3-4 a day... sometimes I take more, sometimes less...) and Soma's. I do fine w/ the Soma's... I rarely need to take one... But hydro's-that's the problem. They work well for the pain and I can still function when I take them (all other pain killers make me so loopy I can not function) but over the years I've become physically dependent. I hate it.

Avatar n tn Hydrocodone is a combination of Hydrocodone and Acetaminophen. Hydrocodone is the generic name for Vicodin, Norco and Lortab. Oxycodone is a combination of Oxycodone and Acetaminophen and is the generic name for Percocet. You can also get each without the Acetaminophen added, if your Doctor will prescribe it for you. I hope that this has been of some help to you. If you have any more questions then feel free to ask. :) I wish you the very best............
Avatar n tn sounds like you got darvacet I have never seen orange lortab name or generic
Avatar n tn Hydrocodone and acetaminophen (Tylenol) is the generic name for Vicodin, Vicodin ES, Anexsia, Lorcet, Lorcet Plus, Norco. I hope you'll share some about you and your pain condition. We'll look forward to hearing more from you.
Avatar f tn none of the pharmacies in my county or surrounding counties have the name brand and I can't afford to buy my own generic right now.Does anyone know of a generic equivalent patch that the drug company will give me for free?
Avatar m tn Had to tell him I could relate because I did not want to feel like a hypocrite. Never heard of a generic vicodin by that name however and I thought I was rather knowledgeable about any type of hydrocodone by whatever name.
Avatar f tn Please also avoid drinking alcohol while taking acetaminophen, because it further increases the risk for liver damage. If you are taking Vicodin or generic acetaminophen-hydrocodone 500/5, it will contain acetaminophen 500 mg and hydrocodone 5 mg. Based on the max daily dose, you cannot take more than 8 tablets per day, assuming you are not taking other medication that has acetaminophen and you are not drinking alcohol. If you are taking additional medication that contains acetaminophen, i.
Avatar m tn Just the last four I've been really bad. I drink at least one 8ounce bottle a day(name brand or generic), if not three or four. It's really messed with me mentally. What about the physical effects? Long term?? I'm afraid if I don't quit soon I could really mess up my insides, if I haven't already.
450052 tn?1207663874 You may be taking a stronger Norco script than you were the Percocet script, because Percocet is generally stronger. As far as I know generic and brand name should be the same. I don't know what else to tell you.
699217 tn?1323442300 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 f tn How many do you take a day ? I have the same problem my doc put me on norco 7.5/325 it has less tylenol. With my problems it doesn't take much especilly if I overindulge to make me sick from the tylenol. I'd bet that's what's happening with you. Oxycodone depending on what type DOES have tylenol the brands that don't are Roxycode and oxycontin.
Avatar f tn Basically none...Hydro is a generic name for Vicodin....it's all the same, just different drug companies, some generic, and some brand name....make sense?
Avatar m tn First of all look on your bottle and see if it says hydrocodone. That's the generic name for vicodin. If the pharmacy did in fact give you codeine instead then yes I would return it or show the Dr if they will not exchange them. It is against federal laws to take back medications so I am afraid you will have to take them to your Dr and get another script. Never take more meds than your prescribed.
