Hydrocodone with codeine

Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone with codeine


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 Hi. My wife just got back from Canada and bought some pills that are like Vivodene. They are Tyonol with codeine. Acetaminophen 300mg, caffine 15mg and codeine 8mg. Isn't that dose of codeine higher thatn what is a Vicodene ES of 7.5? Thank you..
Avatar f tn 325 where as the Lortab has 500 of it. They BOTH have Hydrocodone NEITHER one has ANY codeine!!! It just depends on which one your Doctor orders for you. The Norco has sht MOST Hydrocodone - 10. Whereas the Lortab that you mentioned has 7.5 - Hydrocodone. Just remember the this is HYDROCODONE and NOT Codeine. :) The reason I know this is because I've been on both of these exact meds. I have ALWAYS been allergic to Codeine and therefore that's why I know.
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 Yes, I agree with horselip. Perhaps the codeine is creating a false positive. Your doctor should come to the same conclusion.
1331083 tn?1285912354 Correct - they contain up to 50mg of codeine. They are just as addictive as hydrocodone and are not sold in the US.
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 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.
Avatar n tn Hydrocodone is a CIII and Oxycodone is a CII... the CII is more controlled and cannot be filled in most states without a handwritten rx that is sealed.
Avatar f tn ring your pharmacy and ask... they should be able to tell you. I do know that oxycodone is a fairly powerful opiate but i'm not familar with hydrocodone. THey are both way stronger than codcamol (which is panadol and codeine) and neurofen (which is ibuprofen) Codcamol and neurofen are both avail over the counter at the chemist but you should only be able to get oxycodone or hydrocodone on prescription from a doctor.. Let me know if I have this wrong tho...
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!!!
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 s the question. If I take codeine or hydrocodone and try to skip at least 12 hours and hopefully, a day here and there will I get as horridly hooked as I was on the oxycontin's? I can not schedule these tests as fast as needed. At least I convinced my regular doc that tramadol was not an option and I thank you all for that! Also, how long after dropping lexapro could I start taking the recommended supplements that you can't take while on an SSRI?
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?
382218 tn?1341181487 Had a very uncomfortable night last night due to some really bad menstrual cramps. Barely got a wink of sleep. Advil wasnt helping so early this morning I took 2 Tylenol 3s with codeine. I figured at least it would put me to sleep for a while and hopefully sleep through the worst of the pain. It did, which was a relief, but something else I noticed was a decrease in the pain in my hand - the tight swollen feeling and burning sensation.
801188 tn?1241647626 hi. most all opiate analgesics are combined with other drugs, usually acetaminophen or ibuprofen. for example, the opiate/nsaid ratio of vicodin is 5/500 mg. to my knowledge, hydrocodone is not generally dispensed alone, as oxycodone, morphine, and hydromorphone are in medications. and yes, acetaminophen is very toxic in high doses or in those with compromised liver function, especially when used in conjunction with alcohol consumption.
Avatar n tn Is Tramadol an Opiate and is it stronger then hydrocodone? Anyone with advice concerning this drug HELP.
Avatar m tn So, any medication that has opioids and drugs that are addictive you should use with caution. A lot of people get easily addicted to codeine in cough syrup as well and this drug is similar.
Avatar n tn This cough syrup combines an anti-histamine (chlorpheniramine) with a codeine-like cough suppressant called hydrocodone. Tussionex stops coughing well, but it carries a risk of potential side effects, including drowsiness, constipation, lightheadedness, and vomiting. The hydrocodone component is also an addictive medication and should be used with caution.
Avatar f tn I hope this gets better for you, did they say the clot will go away? I have not had to take hydrocodone, but have taken codeine for back pain. It is incredibly scary to take anything, but I would think your doc knows best. Good luck!
Avatar f tn Ten years ago it was easier to choose the right pain medicine -- chronic pain that was mild or moderate was treated with CIII medications -- codeine, propoxyphene, and hydrocodone. Pain that was moderate to severe was treated with the CII medications -- oxycodone, morphine, hydromorphone, and methadone. It was then a matter of trying different medications on a patient, depending on their pain syndrome, and see what worked best. Today, that's changed.
Avatar f tn but i communicate regularly with people from the UK countries that take the 8mg codeine 325 acetaminophen and they take 40+ pills to get the codeine in 4 tylenol #4's......and subsequently are ingesting 10,000- 15,000mg acetaminophen per day. Its not good for you!
Avatar f tn I know it has codeine so will my baby go through withdrawls?
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 f tn Yet you say her mother is giving her codeine on the side? For another, it sounds like she is more concerned with getting caught than being healthy for the baby ... even if she stops, will she be going back onto unprescribed codeine when the baby is born? For another, there is an assumption that the baby is going to be drug tested ... is that a well founded fear, in other words, is she being watched already for using drugs that she is not supposed to be using?
Avatar n tn I agree with you taking codeine meds help out with this deep depression that I have I truly feel normal & a human being where I interact more with my family than stay cooped up in my bedroom all day isolating myself from the world. I wish they did have a medication that can make me feel better than not helping me.... I am sooo tired of myself feeling soooo depressed & not wanting to be a wife or a mother.
