Hydrocodone vs hydrocodeine

Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone vs hydrocodeine


Avatar f tn My husband has been on a pain management regimen for over 15 years which includes hydrocodeine daily. He takes the meds a prescribed. He is now displaying renal symptoms. Can you direct me to information regarding the long term effects of this particular drug's use on the body?
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 n tn Tramadol is made from poppy seed (which is what hydrocodeine is made from) it is just not classified as a narcotic but there are groups out there that are trying to get it on the controlled substance list. It is very addictive and the withdrawels are very bad. Just look around this board and you will see. Tylenol 3 is very mild but it should be taken with caution. It is similar to viocdin. It can lead to addiction if not taken as prescribed for a short time.
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 got home a couple hrs ago im starting to feel the spinal tap too. I just took some hydrocodeine for pain. I agree this will also be my last pregnancy I was scare because of how long it took for me to feel my legs butt and vagina. But thank God it went well.
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.
Avatar f tn I take hydrocodone and can take up to six of these a day. I am concerned with becoming addicted and if using six pills a day is safe. Lately, my sister has noticed I have slurring of speech occasionally and use the wrong words in a sentence sometimes. Can hydrocodone use cause this? Thank you for any response.
Avatar n tn A former colleague of mine swears that Tramadol is more effective for her than Hydrocodone. She actually went from Hydrocodone to Tramadol. Why is it effective for her? Because we are all different and different medications work differently on each of us. Actually your physician may be making a smart move. In my opinion it's worth a try. Tramadol is prescribed for the treatment of moderate to moderately severe chronic pain in adults. It works very similarly to morphine.
Avatar n tn is 4 mg of Hydromorphone equivalent to 30 mg of hydrocodone
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 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 m tn Hydrocodone also comes in different formulations with more tylenol like 10/500-10/750(I think that one is still out somone correct me if I am wrong please)but it is not stronger just because it says norco all you are doing is paying more for name brand vs paying for generic kind of like paying for kelloggs brand rice krispies vs store brand crisp rice.
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?
