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 f tn btw, hydrocodone does not contain acetaminophen. Medications like Vicodin and Norco contain both hydrocodone and acetaminophen, but hydrocodone is itself a semi-synthetic opioid, similar to oxycodone.
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 You know daddysgirl600 and savak, who cares if you're dependent on a medication prescribed by your doctor whether it's a narcotic or not, whether you take it and it makes you feel sleepy, or calm or even loopy. It doesn't necessarily mean you're addicted even medically speaking. Hear is the medical definition of addiction. Habitual psychological and physiological dependence on a substance or practice beyond one's voluntary control.
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 m tn I have been on HydroCodone-Acetaminophen 10-325 for about four months for severe back pain due to osteo-arthritis and bulging disks, etc. in my spine. I started out taking two pills a day - one in the a.m. and one in the p.m. I decided to reduce the dosage as I had a dreadful withdrawal about a year ago while on Oxycontin. Is it possible to feel symptoms after cutting out one pill a day?

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).
Avatar n tn I dont take more then the recommended dose which is 4 tablets a day. Panlor SS is acetaminophen, caffeine and dihydrocodeine. This may sound bad, but somehow I am out of my script 5 days early. My doctor wont renew my script till the 13th, and Im trying to figure out what im going to do for pain. Im scared to go thru a withdrawal period these next few days, but more so, the pain Im going to occur.
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 f tn Watson540= acetaminophen/hydrocodone 500 mg / 10 mg. You said you are taking 12 pills a day, so that works out to 120mg hydrocodone which is average after taking them for 3 years. This also works out to be 6000mg of acetaminophen a day, which is extremely BAD, you are taking an acetaminophen overdose every day. You are playing a very dangerous game taking that much. That must have been a lousy Doc you were seeing to prescribe that much.
Avatar f tn I think it is all in your head. I can't imagine you would have any serious withdrawal symptoms after a week. Why invite trouble? Since you said you are not physically sick, move on and enjoy yourself. Maybe get out a take a brisk walk or do something that you enjoy doing.
14459885 tn?1434632442 This drug is hydrocodone/ibuprofen. Hydrocodone is probably the most prescribed opiate pain medication. Ive never heard of hydrocodone and ibuprofen together. It's much better than hydrocodone and acetaminophen because the acetaminophen is very hard on the liver. Depending on the dosage (hydrocodone is usually prescribed in doses 5mg, 7.5mg and 10mg) You may have some mild discomfort or something more like a true opiate withdrawal. Tell us a little more about your situation.
Avatar m tn I took a single 5/325 mg hydrocodone/acetaminophen. Within 15 minutes almost all symptoms were gone. I had complete relief for 4.5 hours which is exactly the duration of effective pain relief I had when using hydrocodone in the past for post-surgery pain. I started experimenting with various analgesics (both OTC and prescription). The following summarizes what I now perceive appears to help me.
Avatar m tn s been a relatively short time, and a pretty low dosage, but it is certainly possible you are experiencing some withdrawal symptoms. The restlessness at night is a very common symptom. There are a few things you can do to ease that. Epsom Salt baths feel great, and really help. Also, getting some Potassium by either food like bananas, or through a supplement. There is a 3 in 1 supplement with Calcium, Magnesium, and Zinc that helps as well. Also, taking walks outside in the fresh air.
Avatar m tn t need to in order to keep the withdrawal symptoms at bay. I saw my surgeon a 3rd time and told him what I was going through with the Perococet and he gave me this stuff called Roxicet. It didn't do anything for the wrist pain but was effective at killing any of the withdrawal symptoms. I am now completely out of pills and could not sleep last night. I feel like I have a mild case of the flu.
Avatar f tn People do this or attempt to do it so that they can try to avoid the most severe of the withdrawal symptoms. Once a week or so you drop your dosage a fixed amount until you are at a low daily dose at which point you stop completely. You will still go through withdrawals but they should be milder as you aren't stopping cold turkey. This method works for some while others prefer to just stop cold turkey and go through stronger withdrawals for a shorter period.
Avatar m tn The opiates you mentioned, Hydrocodone, Oxycontin and Percocet all have addictive qualities. They all produce withdrawal symptoms to one degree or another when the medication is stopped. As OtisDaMan said everyone is different. And different ppl with have different experiences with medications as they withdrawal from them. Some ppl have said methadone is the worst withdrawal there is and the very next person will say no methadone wasn't near as bad as tramadol.....and so on.
Avatar m tn Norco has three different strengths (5mg hydrocodone/325mg acetaminophen, 7.
1794671 tn?1338795391 m horrified that your doctor said you would not experience withdrawal if you just stop taking the hydrocodone. You WILL experience withdrawal and that is the very last thing you and your baby need right now. Withdrawal could very easily put you into labor so don't even think about quitting cold turkey. I'm actually more worried about the tylenol component of norco rather than the hydrocodone.
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 f tn are you already sober and experiencing withdrawal long after you quit? Or are you getting ready to withdrawal? Or are you asking do withdrawls alwys occur when quitting? Help me out then maybe I can help you.
Avatar m tn The difference with the Butrans patch versus hydrocodone is it has a ceiling effect after a certain dosage amount and it will cause withdrawal symptoms if it is mixed with a pure opioid like hydrocodone. As long as it is taken alone without the combination of pure opioids, it will continue to work and provide pain relief. If the Butrans patch still leaves a lot of pain behind and you feel you need a lower pain level to make it through your daily activities.
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.
