Hydrocodone vs tylenol with codeine

Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone vs tylenol with codeine

vicodin

Avatar f tn Hi Motownguy, your wife purchased a very watered-down version of tylenol with codeine which IS legally sold without a script in Canada, but why? A standard Tylenol#3 has 30 mg of codeine and NO caffeine. the caffeine is added as an adjunct to headache pain and to prevent abuse by narcotic addicts.
Avatar n tn I have Hydrocodone and Tylenol with Codeine #3. My story is a long one, but right now I just need to know which will help with my pain more. Any help would be appreciated!! Thanks!!!
Avatar f tn The metabolism of codeine results in other opioid metabolites, including morphine, and a minor amount of hydrocodone. In fact, this is how codeine works -- by itself, codeine is ineffective. But because it is metabolized into a small amount of morphine, it is effective against pain. Depending on the laboratory method used by your doctor's testing service, false positives can be reported if their "cut-off level" is set too low.
Avatar f tn I know it has codeine so will my baby go through withdrawls?
Avatar f tn And with that, you have to abide by the tylenol restriction of ...4000mgs a day. Dont quote me on that, but i do believe it's 4000. So for every pill you take, you have to take into account your tylenol intake. In My Personal Opinion. Before i had to move onto stronger medications, Norco 10-325's worked wonders for me. Hope i was of some help.
Avatar f tn How come I read Tylenol with codeine should not be taken in someone who takes stronger opiates? It basically says it induces them. Is this true and if it its why? Seems like it should be helpful during withdraws not induce them. Just wondering. I take a stronger opiate but my dentist gave T3s to me. Why would he do that know it could make me go into withdraw. Anyways I really want to figure this out. Its bugging me.
Avatar m tn Codeine (in the Tylenol 3) could be the culprit. It metabolizes in a complex way into morphine and many other substances. You might ask your PM about that? Could you stop the Tylenol 3 for a month and see if this affects your urinalysis?
Avatar f tn Codeine is an opiate so technically it will keep you from going into withdrawal because you're body is still getting some form of opiate.
9138366 tn?1410253633 My doctor prescribed me Tylenol #3 (Tylenol with codeine) for migraines in pregnancy. He said as long as I took it sparingly it wasn't an issue and was safe for the baby.
Avatar f tn Most likely it would make you sick to your stomach (the tylenol or acetominophen does this). 6 grams of tylenol at once can be fatally toxic to the liver and each pill has either 500mg or 325mg. The FDA claims you should not exceed 4grams in a 24 hour period. Otherwise, you are killing your liver and kidneys with each pill.
Avatar m tn Hydrocodone is available without tylenol. The brand name is vicoprofen and it has 7.5 mg of hydrocodone and 200 mg of ibuprofen, which is the same as one Advil tablet. Vicoprofen also has a generic equivalent. I've found it to be a more effective short-acting medication than regular vicodin, probably because ibuprofen is a true anti-inflammatory which tylenol isn't.
Avatar m tn Ibuprofen and Tylenol. Heat with stretching and then ice before bed. Dr's can only prescribe hydro- pain meds, that you get from a pharmacy.
Avatar n tn Hi, i was wondering if anyone knew the differences between Oxycodone and Tylenol w/Codeine?? I know they both have acetomenophen. But, the Tylenol with Codeine has Codeine obviously. I was taking the one with 30mg. of codeine. Now I have Oxycodone 7.5-325. What is the opiad in this drug? Is it also codeine, or a different drug? I know my body's reaction to the T3, so I am a little nervous to try this new one....oxycodone. Is it stronger, not as strong, the same???
Avatar f tn I have a terrible cold and was wondering if tylenol with codeine would help? Doc gave me some for pain few months ago. Not sure if cold meds is safe during pregnancy...
Avatar f tn I have liver issues along with my pheripheal neuropathy and do not need the tylenol. Thank you, aheart This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/384651'>Feet Burning and Tingling</a>.
Avatar f tn Agreed. That's a lot of Tylenol. Have you taken the Fiorinal with codeine,as well ? There is Tylenol in that, as I'm sure you must know. The combination(if you've taken the Fw/C)is not good. An opiate and a barbiturate can cause some serious problems. How are you feeling? Breathing okay? You should get yourself some help...
Avatar f tn Each round, hard, white, flat-faced tablet, bevelled-edged, engraved with "3" on one side and "McNEIL" on the other, contains acetaminophen 300 mg and caffeine 15 mg, in combination with codeine phosphate 30 mg. Nonmedicinal ingredients: cellulose, cornstarch, and magnesium stearate. This medication does not contain gluten, lactose, sodium metabisulfite, or tartrazine.
Avatar f tn Tylenol 4's have 60 mgs of codeine in them. Codeine is much weaker than, say, oxycodone (which I took.) I've read that oxy is 10X stronger than codeine. I don't think your withdrawals will be that bad...but prepare yourself as much as possible, and post here if you need emotional support.. Good luck!
Avatar m tn The active ingredient in Vicoden is the opiate hydrocodone, and it is mixed with tylenol. Usually they will be written in the script with 2 numbers, the first being the strength of teh hydrocodone and the second number the strength of the tylenol. So vicoden 5/325 would be 5 mgs of hydrocodone and 325 mgs of tylenol. You should be able to find hydrocodone in India. The alternative would be Percocet which is oxycodone instead of hydrocodone.
Avatar n tn My husband whom I left to a percocet addiction recently received a Tylenol with Codeine prescription for his "BACK PAIN". Shouldn't he not have this narcotic due to his severe addiction to oxycodone?
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 f tn Have you been addicted to Tylenol 3 with Codeine? Can you please help me out with my addiction such as sharing your tips, stories and so on.I just joined this site and don't know where to begin.I get T3's prescribed 3 per day, 20 every 7 days (wed-wed) but I also get them on the side from someone I lie to.I want to stop, I dont even know how long its been.It just grew out of control and i had enough but cant beat the withdrawl and i am scared cuz I also dont want help from Doctors.
206807 tn?1331936184 It may be that it worked faster than the hydrocodone for you and thus quicker pain releif with the larger tylenol dose. If you had quicker releif than you pain would not be as apt to "get away" from you and therefore would seem to last longer, though in all actuality it should not. I hope I have explained it well and that this has been helpful. If you need further clarification please feel free to ask. Sometimes my explanation skills are lacking.
Avatar f tn I believe the limit of Tylenol you can take per day is 2000 mg. I wouldn't suffer if I didn't have to.
674555 tn?1272600376 im a member on this site and my lil brother called me cause he was high and (because im in college he thought id know) me mixed hydrocodone (10mg) cough syrup and a tylenol 3 (30mg codeine) with a shot of vodka and i want to know if thats a dangerous mix after he did it of course ...i honestly dont know and was wondering if anyone does??
12103503 tn?1423448886 Tylenol with codeine is called Tylenol#3 but like I said they both are the same thing same exact ingredients in them
Avatar f tn Why would I take that when I can use the tylenol with codeine, which will be no treat to withdraw from, but not the type of misery I assume the suboxone would. Does anybody have any articles that a doctor would consider legitimate so I can show her that suboxone would not be a good choice at this point. She is thinking I have chronic pain and that if I use suboxone I won't get any tolerance to the drug. I don't buy it.
