Hydrocodone shelf life

Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone shelf life

vicodin

Avatar f tn How long is a urine specimen shelf life once collected for a cocaine test?
Avatar m tn I am no doctor but it is my opinion that you will go thru withdraw from the methadone, which is much worse than hydro. Methadone has a very long shelf life. Please be careful mixing the done with anything. A whole bunch of people that I know have died doing just what you are doing. Methadone stays in your system a long dang time. Be careful because when you play with fire you will get burned. If I were you, I would stay far away from the methadone. Just my opinion.
Avatar n tn I have found that the synthetics only have a shelf of about 2-3 years, if that. But Armour has a shelf life of 17 years. Are the Raw thyroids sold on the internet a possibility for me also and are their shelf life as long? I take 120 mcg levothyroxine.
696149 tn?1314320959 Well, I'm in my 14th day of sobriety and I've had some ups and downs with the Bi-Polar and PTSD, but I'm slowly starting to feel better each day. I think I may be a little manic too, but I'm not complaining! It's not as if I can't control myself so I'll enjoy it....besides it's been awhile since I've had natural euphoria! I'm not out of the woods yet, but I've got to say the craving for Vicodin is pretty minimal.

Avatar f tn I thought it was horrible. Took 4 7.5 hydrocodone but was on it for over 12 years since getting cfids fibromyalgia. Still have that.
12946799 tn?1427894912 Today I celibrate life... No April Fools... 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....
Avatar m tn Here's what happened. I met up with a couple (gay) that I know. We messed around (all three of us) for a bit, then one left to go to sleep, leaving just two of us. My friend used a dildo on me, one of which he uses on his boyfriend. He did wash it, though I am not sure how, I just know that water was used, unsure if soap was.
Avatar f tn Yup, trying again to quit....feeling sorry for myself, had to work today, one of three jobs I have to support me and my two daughters, didn't think I would make it, but did, how I did I do not know...hope I'm going to make it too!!!!!
Avatar m tn 7 years 7 to 10 hydrocodone 10s a day I have gotten down to 2 a day and have not taken any today (I'm out and can't find any... Which might be a good thing.) I have tried quitting before and did for about 6 months. I have some depression social anxiety and have a lack of motivation. Hydros have always taken care of all my problems big small physical mental doesn't matter and haven't been sick the entire 7 years. Not even a cold. I have always self medicated.
751197 tn?1270314156 Antibiotics are not available in the United States without a physician's precription. And most physicians disapprove of someone keeping an "emergency supply". Recent changes in the law permit HIV patients to obtain anti-biotics without a prescriptionj provided they fill out a form. There are little "underground" pharmacies, You have to fill out a form (put down any name).
219241 tn?1413537765 The blister packs are to optimize the freshness, as the shelf life has been purposely reduced by half. That is also why you are required to refrigerate the blister packs. Sunythetic T4 hormones in the US have not changed their shelf life, so the blister packs and refrigeration are not as much of an issue. And yes, If I could get those US manufactured pharmaceuticals cheaper by getting them from Mexico or Canada (who buy them from US companies at a reduced rate), I would be doing it.
Avatar f tn As far as I know the syringe itself will not expire, but the rubber stopper on the syringe plunger may have a shelf life. If you have a bunch of syringes that are due to expire, I would recommend speaking with the manufacturer, they may be able to give you some insight on why the syringe has an expiration date. I hope this helps.
Avatar f tn I am a functioning adult, professional job, parent, spouse, and on the outside I look great and like my life is great. What NO one knows is that I am addicted to Hyrocodone. No one would iimagine the things Ive done to get opiates. Im incapable of limiting my use, and when I have it I use a lot of it every day. And I have been able to have it daily for years, and my morals and values have gone out the window. The crazy thing about addiction...
1176246 tn?1415011917 Since it has a shorter half life will the wd period be shorter? Like hydrocodone and methadone. One will be in wd much longer after getting off of methadone in comparison to hydrocodone because of the half life. Is this true for benzo's as well? I sure hope so. I do not want to be on this stuff anymore. I'm very frusterated that I continue to slip up, please help me understand benzo and benzo wd and tapering. I have tried to see three doctors.
Avatar n tn why keep me on this medicine for years and not fix the problem now i have more problems. my life suxxxxxxxxx!!!!!!!!!!! i cant function without this med im depressed im sick im FED UP and god as my witness i will find a way to see that the doctor that did this will be seen in court. sick of addiction!!!!!!!!!
Avatar n tn Hi - I've been on a scrip for hydrocodone for about a year, only 2 10/500 pills/day. Is that an addictive quantity of the drug? I normally quite taking them for a few days like every other month or so - haven't ever noticed any effect other than probably some imagined joint pain. Nothing like the horror stories posted here for certain. Probably like everyone else, I do get "stoned" off of them infrequently - ie take 4 at a time.
Avatar f tn My mother is almost 60 and she has a real bad back and knees. She has been taking hydrocodone for as long as I can remember. Well, when I turned 13 I got into smoking marijuana. Still do to this day. And I think it is what opened me up to the other drugs I have done. Anyways, when I was around 16, I had real bad mestrual pain and my mom offered me one of her pain killers. Bad mistake. The first time I took it, I got sick because I didn't eat. After I ate I was high as a kite.
Avatar n tn Well, i got caught at school with hydrocodone. I guess its what i really needed to realize what i was doing. Im going to classes now, and everything seems to be looking up. I had to quit, cold. If i continued at the high dose i was, i myself and my doctors agree i wouldn't be here today. Thank you everyone for supporting me. It is possible.
Avatar f tn yes i am having hydrocodone withdrawals and its been for a few days i am wondering if i should go to the doctor.and could withdrawals hurt me?
Avatar n tn I have a urine test , trying to wean off . How long does hydrocodone stay in urine before considered being clean? Is it 72 hours or longer.Trying to get clean and get job!!
Avatar m tn t know anything about that drug and I just want you to be safe when you get off of it. You see drugs like Methadone have a long shelf life in your system and take time to ween off. Drugs like my DOC, Vicodin doesn't have a long shelf life and is usually out of the body within 48-72 hours. I just don't know what category the drug your taking falls into. That's why you need more info. Can you get off this drug and have a clean life... ABSOLUTELY!!!
Avatar f tn It does have a MUCH longer half life than hydrocodone and is a MUCH stronger synthetic opioid. You may have some w/drawal symptoms for a few days. I'm glad you decided NOT to go back to the clinic. Methadone is about 3 to 4 times stronger than hydrocodone and it has a much longer half life which may be why your dr suggested it. I can only tell you that I would stick with the hydrocodone if you need pain control. Methadone is a BEAR to get off of as it seeps into the bones and tissues.
Avatar f tn Maybe I did take it too soon, but I tried figuring out the shelf life of what I took, and seemed as if it should of been out my system. I am a little anxious and thinking about where to get Norco, but i do want this to work, so confused...Think im gonna go take another 8mg, then hopefully i will be able to sleep. So sweaty and achy. Didnt have a headache til took subs....
Avatar n tn There is an expiration date for a reason! Drugs like everything have a shelf life, the older they are, the more inneffective they become. Get the prescription renewed, refill...
