Hydrocodone generic name

Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone generic name


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 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 I am in the pharmacy program that pays for my patched until i get my DSS and I cannot find the brandname anywhere due to the new DEA guidelines on sched 2 narcotics. Any ideas? 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 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.
450052 tn?1207660274 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.
317787 tn?1473358451 A lot of insurance co's dictate what they pay for,mine for example will only pay for generics and when a generic is not available and name brand must be filled I'm hit with a big deductible.
1134609 tn?1269272200 ----I stabilized completely last summer and I was on the brand name version of the medication. When I switched over to the generic, I started having problems and had to increased the dose from 900mgs to 1600mgs over the space of a few months. Any changes in the dosages over this time dropped me into a deep depression and I HAD to drop the dosage many times because it was agitating me. I just assumed it was because I was adjusting to the medication.
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 f tn yes, i swear by the drug gabapentin is the generic name for it.. i took it this last time i detoxed and it helped me so much.. I still had mild withdrawal symptoms just some small achieness and sneezes.. and some RLS every now and then..But it does help so much oh and it helps with the anxiousness so much.. Well if there is anything els you would like to know , please don't hesitate to pm me .. Talk to you soon and take care..
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).
590280 tn?1310087366 Percocet is Oxycodone and Vicodin ES is Hydrocodone.
Avatar m tn Hydrocodone is available without tylenol. The brand name is vicoprofen and it has 7.5 mg of hydrocodone and 200 mg of ibuprofen, which is the same as one Advil tablet. Vicoprofen also has a generic equivalent. I've found it to be a more effective short-acting medication than regular vicodin, probably because ibuprofen is a true anti-inflammatory which tylenol isn't.
Avatar n tn Hydrocodone, in the form of Vicodin and its generics, contains a large amout of acetaminophen, the generic name for Tylenol, usually in the amount of 500 mG per pill. Taking large amount of this is dangerous, particulary to your liver. That's one of the reasons they put it in there, as a way to discourage addiction. So, if your scrip is for Vikes, keep this in mind. However, your situation is more than just addiction. You have real pain.
Avatar f tn what is a generic drug?
Avatar n tn 0 down to 0.
Avatar n tn Sorry, never seen a green hydrocodone pill. Only the white generic, the 7.5/325 orange norcos, 10/500 blue vicodins, and the 10/325 yellow norcos. I took so damn many of all of those it's going to take me a long time to fully get over the addiction. Don't take something if you aren't sure what it is. When I was in my medicine cabinet raiding days someone had put different pills in different bottles, so I think I took some sort of anti-biotic instead.
Avatar f tn I have been seeing my PCP for treatment of migraines, chronic myofascial pain, and fibromyalgia. I have been prescribed hydrocodone 5/500 since October of 2010. In May of 2012 he increased my dosage to 7.5/325 and I have been on the same dose since then. The hydrocodone stopped being effective a few months ago. Instead of increasing the dosage, he started prescribing NSAIDS to take along with the hydrocodone.
Avatar f tn m in the same boat except I cannot take the generic I have to have Lyrica. With the others I have trouble breathing. I have a damaged spinal nerve root from a failed fusion. An epidural did help way more than a nerve block. I also take tizanidine and hydrocodone. I used a E-stem and Dragontree (online) have some awesome pain patches. Carry on.
