Hydrocodone vs demerol

Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone vs demerol


Avatar f tn question: if 1 mg of suboxone is equal to 20-30 mgs of hydrocodone would that be the same for oxycontin would 1 mg of sub be equal to 20-30 mgs oxy then?
2030686 tn?1351688548 Everyone is different in what works for them. That is why I didn't suggest anything specific. It also makes a difference to know what kind of pain is being treated. Your urologist may not want to prescribe anything stronger then Hydrocodone 10's. and yes, 10's are the highest strength Hydrocodone. A PM doc is more knowledgable on treating different kinds of pain effectively. Good luck to you!
Avatar f tn I gave my husband the pills so he could dole them out to me. The dentist gave me demerol 50mg 1 to 2 every 4 hours. Ive never taken demerol before and I have tried not to take them but my God it hurts! My face is huge and it looks like I got punched in both eyes...I have been taking 1 every 6 hours along with Motrin 800. Anyways, I have noticed the depression I used to get kicking in. Is that even possible? Just from a few pills? Can my mind really relapse that fast?
Avatar m tn ve been diagnosed with RSD and have been on Demerol, hydrocodone, oxycodone and Lyrica. After seeing what works and what doesn't, I am currently only taking the oxycodone(2-7.5 every 4-6 hrs) and Lyrica(3-75 mg a day). The side effects I'm experiencing are constipation and my libido is mia. I can deal with the constipation, but at 45 and married, the libido change has GOT to be corrected.
Avatar f tn We are currently down to about 60mg a day and are running out of supply. We do have some 50mg Demerol and was wondering if that would help keep the withdrawals at bay and also help us with tapering off.
Avatar f tn How well does demerol work durring labor? I'm due in 9 days and I'm still not sure what I wanna take while in labor but I'm leaning towards demerol, so what are pros and cons about it?
Avatar f tn I was just thinking of all the different medications I've been on over the last year or two and the pros and cons to all of them. Then it occurred to me I'd never tried Demerol for BT pain, and now I can't remember ever seeing anyone here refer to it. Has anyone used Demerol? Is it maybe not used for chronic pain for some reason? I remember getting it twice in my life. One was a shot in the bum when I threw my back out about 8 years ago.
Avatar f tn So, I know all medicine is different for everyone but when I got for my surgery on Wednesday, I have to see about him calling me in a different type of pain medicine for my surgery because 1) They will not let me get more tylox filled right now since i can only do so once a month and 2) my resistant to it now. I am HIGHLY allergic to hydrocodone so can any of you suggest some medicine that could be good so I can talk with my doctor about medicine. I have a lot of allergies to medicine.
Avatar f tn At 16 when the pancreas problems began, I was given Demerol after every surgery (pill form) and through IV during every hospital visit. At times I was given Meperidine instead, or Demerol and Phenergan. At about 18, for the FMS, I was switched to Lortab (Hydrocodone) 5/500. I am still to this day on Lortab 5/500, though since I was about 20, it has been no more than one 5/500 mg tablet per day to help me sleep through the pain. Normally I take between 1/2 to 3/4 of a pill.
687729 tn?1397992727 I have recently run out of Hydrocodone and am going through mild withdrawals... nothing like when I quit Methadone in November of 2008. I have a history of chronic pain and have had four back surgeries (including two fusions and a laminectomy for stenosis). These drugs [in order of efficiency] have helped me in the past: Demerol, Morphine, Methadone, Percocet, MS-Contin, Fentanyl patches, and Hydrocodone. I am going to see my primary physician Feb 23 and seeing a Physiatrist on March 4.
Avatar m tn Fentanyl is a stonger form of an opioid. Opiate and opioid mean the same thing: Opiate is an adjective while opioid is a noun. Percocet is an opioid as is fentanyl. They are synthetic which means they are man made and not derived from a plant. Good job on getting off the Percocet!
203003 tn?1210855907 Now I got a Shot of Demerol actually 200mg of it, bc my head was so bad, im not having withdrawal symptoms and I dont feel like I want it. Im just wondering if it will set me back in my detox?? I dont think it will bc its a different chemical then what I was addicted too which was hydrocodone, vicodin 10/325. Im just worried, anyone have any feedback??
Avatar n tn Not really any difference. Vicoprofen has Ibuprofen with the Hydrocodone. Vicodin has Tylenol. Strength would be the same if they both were the same dose.
Avatar m tn There are a couple differences between medications that are worth noting; meperidine or Demerol should be avoided in the doses you are describing, as the primary breakdown product, normeperidine, is neurotoxic and causes seizures; Codeine is not a good choice at these doses as it just does not have that much potency; Morphine does tend to cause more stomach cramping and nausea, and is subject to high 'first pass metabolism' that makes oral dosing difficult; Any opiate at these dos
Avatar f tn The urine test WILL show the difference in the two medications. Vicodin is HYDROcodone, which is different than OXYcodone, different drug, different chemical breakdown and different metabolites. Why did you run out of your prescribed vicodin early? The prescriptions are supposed to last 30 days, if you are taking them exactly as prescribed, you should not run out early.
Avatar f tn avisg is our resident expert on Trams. Vicodin is also an opiate. It is Hydrocodone and addictive as all opiates are. On the addiction scale Vics are not as strong as other opiates. Why do you ask?
403399 tn?1201833095 The only reason why Tramadol (Ultracet, Ultram, etc.) is not considered a narcotic is because at the moment it is unscheduled in the USA and pretty much everywhere else. It is fairly new being researched and first put on the market in the 90's.
206807 tn?1331936184 Since changing to Norco my intake has doubled and has me concerned. I know they both have same amount of hydrocodone but does Lorcet work longer because of the Acetaminophen? Does the Acetaminophen slower the disribution of hydrocodone? The Norco seems to work faster but the Lorcet seems to work longer. Any input?
Avatar n tn I have taken over 12 different prescription medications and including hydrocodone and have gotten shots of morphine and Demerol nearly twice a week now. I don't know what to do anymore. I have seen every specialist imaginable and I can't seem to get a diagnosis.
Avatar f tn All throughout this sight it seems to be the number one killer. Last time I was coming off methadone - this time hydrocodone. Should be easier, but still not easy. Is the worst over yet??????????????
Avatar f tn I have been given, hydrocodone, Tylenol 3, morphine, Vicodin, and others, I feel absolutely no relief from pain EVER, be it kidney stone or tooth ache. I have bottles of this crap. I tell drs I feel no pain relief ever! I do get nauseated and a bit sleepy. These r my only two symptoms after taking a pill, or they IV it in my arm. Otherwise nothing. My daughter for an arm break got down right loopy after some morphine.. It was amazing too watch. Me? Never. Drs never believe you either.
9354170 tn?1403260122 I am taking morphine sulfate 15mg 2x daily and hydrocodone 5/325 4x daily. I have been on pain medications including Demerol and oxycodone since 2002 for chronic pancreatitis and gastro pain. I just want to quit taking the pain medication. I actually think that the pain meds are keeping me sick. I want to try quitting on my own without telling my doctor. Any advice?
Avatar f tn Hi Jujubean48, When you have been on the same Medication for such a long period of time, many times you build up a tolerance to your medications. That's what happened to me after I was on Norco (Hydrocodone) 7.5 for 7 years. After that length of time they just quit working on me! :( My PM Doctor switched me to Percocet 10/325's for my BT (Breakthrough) Meds along with giving me a Long-Acting Med and that took care of the problem. Hopefully, the Ultram will give you some relief.
