Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone pain medication

vicodin

Avatar f tn Talk to your doctor about the hydrocodone use and ask his advice for tapering off. Three months is a long time to be on hydrocodone, your femur should be feeling better by now.
Avatar m tn If its hydrocodone it will be stated as a xx(hydrocodone) - xx (apap/asprin). Doses of tylenol ranged from 325/500/750 and asprin i'm not sure (Assume only 200mg but I have no clue.They come in liquid suspension and tablet form and rarley without a tylenol/asprin additive. I'm taking percocet which is a whole different Active ingrediant. From my experience a lot more dangerous than hydrocodone. Its approx. 1.5x stronger than lortab in analgesia terms.
Avatar n tn i have been taking hydrocodone for about 3 years for chronic back pain due to an auto accident in 1995. first it was 550mg and then 750mg then went back down to 550mg, i want to stop taking them and want to know if there is an over the counter medicine or herbal item i can take to help alleviate the pain?
699217 tn?1323438700 I wanted to know what the difference is between hydrocodone and like-oxycontin or oxycodone, Percocet, tramadol, is this all just types of hydrocodone? All I ever took was hydrocodone....
Avatar f tn I have been taking 10x325 hydrocodone and 100mg tramadol for chronic pain. I was recently given an option to try the fentanyl patch. It scard me so badly i took it off after a month and a half use. The withdrawal was THE most horrific i have ever been thru. Compared to methadone it was scary! So i decided to go back to the hydrocodone and tramadol for this month. Knowing it would be a hard month for me with pain but needed time to think about my options. Now im not sure where to go.
Avatar f tn Hi everyone, I am well aware that the maximum daily dose for acetaminophen is 4000 mg. I am currently on a regimented pain medication plan but fear that coming close to 4000 mg daily is bad for me. I never go past that dosage and I don't drink alcohol, but is it dangerous or bad for your liver to always be near the max daily dose? I try to give my liver some breaks by cutting my dose way down for a few days here and there, but I still get scared.
Avatar m tn Percocet (oxycodone) is even higher on the scale of potency than Hydrocodone. I think that may be to quick of a step upward. If your pain can be treated with a lesser opiate you are better off in the long run. As chronic pain patients we must always look forward to next year or the next three, five years or twenty years. Selecting the lowest strength and dosage to manage your chronic pain is always the best choice. Please discuss your pain and it's management with your physician.
Avatar f tn Found out on Friday there is actually something wrong with my right knee that could be causing the back pain (the back pain was in my back and sending pain down my right leg). They are doing surgery on Wednesday because back in '09 I had a lateral release in my right leg and my band in my knee healed and grew back really thick, so he is going back in to thin the band up. He said he believe it is what is causing all my pain and etc. If it makes any sense..
525745 tn?1212452109 I have been prescribed hydrocodone 7.5mg (pain killer) i have never been prescribed a pain killer before. I injured by back at work, and the hydro's help however i am thinking about not taking them anymore because of the side affects. i have about 36 of them left and i know that they can become habit forming but that is not my issue. they make me very drowsy almost light headed, my memory has also been affected. i had to look up my mothers phone number.
Avatar f tn The doctor put me on hydrocodone 5/325 for pain and said it wont cross the placenta, and its safe for the baby. Has anyone else had to take this while being pregnant.
Avatar m tn I was originally prescribed hydrocodone 10 twice a day for lower back pain 4 years ago. My pain is now pretty well controlled with Alieve. I continue to use hydrocodone/ib 7.5 in the AM and half that pill in the late afternoon but not for pain. My question refers to a moderate depression I've had for years that only 5mg Xanax relieved. My doctor advised against Xanax use except for emergencies. No anti-depressant worked or had severe side effects.
Avatar n tn I've been in severe pain for 15 years, and it keeps getting worse. My doctor put me on Hydrocodone 10/660 about 10 years ago, and it has worked wonders and kept my pain level down to a 2 (scale 1-10). Now, I'm told she can't prescribe it for me anymore, and has cut me back to 10-335. I feel like I've gone backwards in time. I'm back to soaking me feet in ice water, and coating my feet with Capazation, just for a little bit of temporary relief.
Avatar n tn Can i mix tramadol 100mg with hydrocodone 10 mg? I can't get my pain under control and I can't even get out of bed. My husband works all the time and I have a 4 year old son to take care of. This is the 6th day that i haven't gotten out of bed. Someone please help with some advice on mixing tramadol and hydrocodone. Thank you.
Avatar n tn i have i dont have hydrocodone in my urine when i see my pain dr today and im sure i dont but i do have weed in it if i use somone elses urine that has nothing in it and put a hydrocodone pill in theirn urine and soak in it for a little bit will it show in their urine
Avatar f tn First, when you take a medication like Norco containing 10mg of hydrocodone, the entire 10mg of hydrocodone is dumped into your bloodstream within an hour or so. That entire 10mg is available to the many opioid receptors in your spine and through out your body at once, providing a greater analgesic response. When you take a 20 mg Zohydro tablet.
Avatar n tn no, hydrocodone is vicodin. Morphine sulfate is the active ingredient in morphine. If you are worried about a possible reaction to the medication, I would speak to your local pharmacists. I'm not sure if hydrocodone and morphine are in the same family of drugs. I know vicodin and percocet are in a similar family (due to codine), but morphine is much different. refer to this website. http://www.rxlist.com/duramorph-drug.
645800 tn?1466860955 well, I'm no help either. Im also labeled drug sensitive. Never thought of connecting it to MS though. Interesting. I've been that way got probably the last 15 yrs........will run it past my neuro in May. I know I can't take a lot of pain medication and they think I am just after the hard stuff because I turn down what they offer.... Thanks for bringing this thought up!
Avatar f tn t have an addictive personality and throughout the course of this, I have not formed an addiction to the pain medication (which I find a blessing). My question is this- Is it safe that I've been taking this medication, at this level, for 10+ years? Anyone have any idea? I've asked my doctor and he says it's fine. My liver is also tested once a year via blood tests.
Avatar f tn Yes. Xanax , in combination with opiates/opioids contributes to huge numbers resulting overdose deaths. Both types of medications can cause respiratory suppression, and using them both together compounds the effects. Most PM doctors want any and all scheduled medications prescribed by one office, making it easier to track usage, fills, and compliance.
Avatar f tn I turned down morphine pump and nerve blocks got down to 50mg hydrocodone on my own, although lately pain swelling so much worse I have started taking higher doses of hydrocodone again to get grip on pain and function thru the day. I am seeing chiropractor just as of last week says he can help I am hopeful! Want off daily meds!
Business man2 Hydrocodone can be combined with Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen for pain. Both preparations have similar outcomes for pain relief.
12946799 tn?1427894912 I am having a hard time getting older, and keep trying to blame it on pain pills holding me back. I have talked to my doctor and pharmacist about living without Hydrocodone... They both explain "quality of life" w/pain meds vs no pain meds... I went for years believing that every woe I ever had, was attributed from residule effects of being busted up so badly and healing crooked.... I am now in a catagory of Fibromalgia.... It is a broad term used for too many unexplainable things.
Avatar f tn s were not down by my next visit on 3/23 I would no longer be able to take the Hydrocodone nor the cholesterol medication. My question is what alternatives to I have to replace the Hydrocodone10/325. Please reply with any advice or suggestions. Thank You.
Avatar f tn Just be honest. Your baby deserves it. I know someone who was on pain medication throughout her pregnancy because she had a head injury from an accident. She had ligitimate presciption. What you take in, your baby takes in. If you go through withdrawl without it, its possible that your little 5,6,7 pound baby will too.
