Hydrocodone vs acetaminophen

Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone vs acetaminophen


Avatar f tn Norco is the same active ingredient as Vicodin and Lortab (hydrocodone), but the Tylenol (acetaminophen) content is lower at 325mg than the 500mg in Lortab and Vicodin.
Avatar f tn As always Marycarmel has offered some good information. The concern of the Hydrocodone is the dosage of the Acetaminophen (Tylenol). My Acetaminophen in the Hydrocodone that I take is at 325mg per tablet and my Physician is comfortable with that dose. Again, it's not the milligrams of the Hydrocodone that is of concern, it's the milligrams of the Acetaminophen (Tylenol). I am sorry to hear that you will have pain for years with the diagnosis of Fibromyalgia.

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 f tn m concerned about my liver. My doctor refuses to put me on hydrocodone with a lower dose of acetaminophen. I've been on this medication for 10 years-again, rarely even taking 1 full pill a day. It is hard, because I make myself suffer through the pain in order to keep my liver going. I don'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).
206807 tn?1331936184 Norco, Lorcet, Lortab and Vicodin have all the same basic chemicals. They are all Hydrocodone with acetaminophen (tylenol). Norco comes in 10/325 as does Lorcet. So it is the amount of the tylenol that has been decreased. Your PCP apparently was considered as you said about the amount of tylenol you were ingesting. Tylenol does not effect the how the hydrocodone is absorbed now how quickly it is absorbed. It is my guess that the additional tylenol provided you more pain relief.
Avatar m tn Vicoden is (hydrocodone) and (acetaminophen "tylenol") and theres Vicoprofen (hydrocodone) and (ib-profen) the hydrocodone and acetaminophen in 5/500 Vics equal eachother out as the 10/325 hydro and aceta equals out.
Avatar n tn Norco is better than most because it only has 325 of Tylenol Vs. 500 or 650. To my knowledge hydrocodone which is the narcotic agent in Norco (I take it too) does not come in a tablet all on it's own. In order to get rid of the Tylenol you have to move up to the drug oxycodone which is in drugs like Percocet they make oxycodone tabs without Tylenol. Question is why are you so worried about your liver? Is your liver already compromised?
Avatar f tn Will the Perc work better? That depends on the person, honestly. They say coupling Tylenol with Oxy (or Hydrocodone) increases the effectiveness of the narcotic. Pharmacologically, I'm sure there is a valid reason to couple the two, but the reality is that i probably depends on the person using them. So your Perc 7.5/325 is 7.5mg of Oxycodone and 325mg of Tylenol. The Tylenol is used for inflammation, fever, and general aches/pains.
6538759 tn?1386250196 Zohydro is about 10 times stronger than hydrocodone. It has no acetaminophen in it at all..it also does NOT have an "abuse deterrent" in it. The abuse of OxyContin was dramatically improved when Big Pharma was forced to add an abuse deterrent to the chemical makeup of the drug. Proving that formulating a tamper-proof form of OxyContin cut down on it's horrific abuse. Zohydro and OxyContin are both designed as ER (extended release) only to be taken every 8-12 hrs.
Avatar m tn Norco has three different strengths (5mg hydrocodone/325mg acetaminophen, 7.
Avatar m tn I totally agree with the advice given above about making sure your doctor is writing yours scripts notating that a generic is ok to use. Make sure she is NOT writing it or marking the box on the script that brand name has to be used. I don't know of any hydrocodone that is available without the tylenol (acetaminophen) added (which is what norco is - hydro plus acetaminophen).
Avatar m tn I have a prescription for hydrocodone 5/500. I have been taking a 1/2 of 7.5/750 nightly. Will a urine or hair drug test be able to tell the difference in my taking 1/2 of 7.5/750 versus my prescription for 5/500?
Avatar n tn The problem with HCV and vicodin abuse is going to weigh heavily on the acetaminophen component rather than the hydrocodone. Opioids are fairly liver friendly relative to long term high dose acetaminophen. If you can obtain straight hydrocodone rather than the combo, you might be better off; no one should be ingesting more than 2 grams acetaminophen/day.
Avatar n tn I suggest that if you are taking a narcotic that you have the smallest possible dose of acetaminophen prescribed with it. I know that hydrocodone come with a 325mg dose of acetaminophen. It is just best to be safe and as good to our life sustaining organs as possible. However should it happen that the the narcotics with acetaminophen are removed you can rest assured that they manufactures will be quick to produce these same drugs without the addition of acetaminophen.
Avatar f tn They have different chemical make-ups. All of the hydrocodone meds I listed also contain acetaminophen (tylenol). As far as I'm aware, they do not make a hydrocodone pill that does NOT contain acetaminophen. Percocet also contains acetaminophen, however, you can get oxycodone alone wthout the acetaminophen in it. Oxycodone can also be obtained in a long-acting formula called Oxycontin.
Avatar m tn I am going to see my Dr. today and I have been perscribed hydrocodone in the past to treat chronic lumbosacral pain. How is Oxycodone 5mg compared to Hydrocodone? I take Hydrcodone 5/500 APAP. Is Oxycodone a good alternative to Hydrocodone? What are your experiences?
Business man2 Hydrocodone can be combined with Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen for pain. Both preparations have similar outcomes for pain relief.
Avatar f tn This is the first time I've ever tried this I took 5 i took 5 hydrocodone/acetaminophen 5-325 and I'm worried about over dosing. Any answers you have can help me. I will never try this again. They weren't mine I took them to get high. I'm really scared.
Avatar m tn So, if Im taking anywhere from 40-80 mg of hydrocodone and roughly 1500-4000 mg of acetaminophen a day and I begin the isoniazid treatment am I risking serious health problems? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!
Avatar n tn I have been prescribed hydrocodone/acetaminophen 7.5/750. I usually break them in half or take 1 throughout the day as prescribed but have been told to take two in severe instances and did so before going to sleep tonight. At one point I woke up and was in pain and took two more without thinking or realizing that it hadn't been much more than an hour. Within an hour the pain was gone but I have been awake ever since with worry over taking so much acetaminophen.
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.
Avatar f tn I just started on Zohydro ER because the idea of not taking acetaminophen with hydrocodone was tempting. (There's a Black Box warning about the acetaminophen in Vicodin). The first day I started the Z. (about 5 days ago) I got less pain relief and much more pain than I had with 5/375 Vicodin! That's seems totally wrong but it happened. The dose of the Z is the same as I got for the number of 5/375s I took per day. Anyone else on Z. and how do you like it? Any side effects?
