Percocet and hydromorphone

Common Questions and Answers about Percocet and hydromorphone


Avatar n tn It also increases serotonin and norepinephrine which with the opiate effects are very helpful in relieving pain for many people. And tylenol has no equivalent to hydromorphone. Tylenol is simply a pain reliever and fever reducer that you get over the counter. They usually put large amounts of it with opiates like vicodin( 5mg hydro./500mg tylenol or 7.5mg. hydro./750mg tylenol) norcos (10mg hydro.
Avatar n tn She is going to be switched off of methadone and norco soon by her pain doctor - he is suggesting oxymorphone in place of methadone and percocet in place of norco. I hope and pray that I dont see abuse with oxymorphone and percocet like I did with oxy and norco. By the way, I do hang on to her norcos and dispense them to her - she does go overboard in the first week (she will take 12 to 15 per day instead of 7 which she is prescribed), and then is forced to cut down until refill.
Avatar n tn I'd never hear of the brand-name Opana before, but I can tell you the big difference between oxy's and dilaudid ... Oxycodone -- the opioid in Percocet/dan and Oxycontin, is derived from a part of the opium moleculed called thebaine -- that's why it gives you that "lift," hardly anyone with no knowledge of these drugs would expect. Many oxy addicts take so much of the stuff, they need to take a few benzos to sleep.
Avatar n tn I have herniated discs in my lower back that will require sergury to correct the problem. My doctor has prescibed Percocet for the pain until I can see a nuerosergeon and have a date set for my operation. I have been on pain meds for about four months now on and off. Whenever I try to stay off of the medication, the pain is too much for me to take.I am due to have the operation in the next three to four weeks tops because my appointment with the surgeon is in one week.
Avatar m tn I had 3 surgeries a titanium rod that goes from my knee to my ankle and a staple and titanium cage in my spine now. I have screws in my knee ankle and spine. I started out taking Morphine 30 mg 3 times a day, percocet 10/325 3 times a day and Valium 10 mg, After being on all that for 2 years the insurance company got a doctor to say I didn't need any pain medication and now they wont pay for any type of pain pill.
538894 tn?1389310148 Vicodin at the same time. Percocet 10's and vicodin 10's up to 50mg of Percocet per day and tapered a little bit over the last week. I found that tapering seemed to just prolong the pain so I decided to go cold turkey. My final dose was on Jan. 6th I took 1 Perc 10 over the course of that day and last dose was at 11:30PM on the 6th. I am starting an outpatient rehab today as I have had some problems with these pills about 5 years ago, so this is a relapse for me.
Avatar m tn I doubt that the Tramadol will help with the withdrawal symptoms as it is so much more weaker than percocet but it may help a little bit with the pain and a lot with the depression you are feeling right now as it increases serotonin in the brain also. Hydromorphone (what your wife is taking) is very potent and stronger than percocet. How is it helping you with your pain? Hope this helps.
Avatar m tn in the mean time they have been putting me on hydromorphone and given me percocet to off set the pain. It has been so bad that I can not eat half the time and my chest hurts so bad it feels like a heart attack and I start to panic and freak out. Needless to say, its been 3 weeks and I've been given over 75 percocet and have taken my last one today. now I am worried that something will affect my unborn child and make him sick.. what do you recommend I do? I'm just scared.
Avatar n tn It's unusual that he is alergic to Morphine and can take oxycontin as they are very close. Hydromorphone or oxymorphone are good and strong but also close to morphine.
Avatar n tn Dr switched me from 20mg percocet to hydromorphone 10 mg what is difference
330115 tn?1199938035 hi i was snorting oxys also and percocet capsules, i would open the capsules and pour out the good stuff and snort it i did that for a year and im still using but tryign to quit, but i am constantly congesed sometimes i wake up and i can barely breathes.

Avatar m tn We've discussed my concern about finding one that works for me, and she always lists off the standard short-actings for me to choose from, i.e. Morphine, Hydromorphone, Hydrocodone, Vicodin, Percocet, etc. The one time I brought up potentially going from 2mg Dilaudid to 4 mg Dilaudid she simply said she didn't want to increase strength. We have good rapport and she knows I'm being honest with her. Is there a better way to approach looking for something more effective?
Avatar f tn I have read that some say hydrocodone works better for their pain than percocet and viceversa. For me, percocet works a lot better for my pain. Hydrocodone does not come without acetaminophen...yet. There is a drug in development called, Zohydro that would be a long-acting form of hydrocodone without acetaminophen. Clinical trials are underway but the drug won't be on the consumer market until probably early 2014.
Avatar n tn I've been taking 5mg valium, 10mg percocet, and 30mg morphine for the past 4 years because of my back and knee problems and i've still been taking it every day throughout my whole pregnancy so far. Turns out, the effects from not taking the meds and the effects from taking them every fdat are much different. I was told withdraw is much more dangerous to myself and my unborn daughter. Btw I've done plenty of testing and my daughter has no visible birth defects or issues.
Avatar f tn I made sure to explicitly say I did not want anything with oxycodone in it (especially not percocet because I REALLY liked those) I got hydromorphone because it is strong and makes me nauseous if I take more than is enough to deal with the pain. I took them ONLY at night so I could sleep. The rest of the day I took Tylenol and for a few days Toradol. I took them for two weeks post op and then I stopped.
Avatar n tn I have had the same problems , I quit Oxycontin 3 weeks ago and got the cough/sneezing sinus allergy symptoms bad then someone gave me Hydromorphone and I caved in to get rid of the symptoms ( I know how *** backwards that is ) so now I have quit those and of course the same problem is back again after the 3rd day clean . I was just considering going to see a doctor and decided to research this online, this is the first article I came across and it was very helpful.
922573 tn?1304102929 The symptoms could have gotten worse and the percocet may have nothing to do with the anxiety your feeling. Talk to your doctor and explain everything that's going on.
Avatar f tn Amitriptyline, bupivacaine, clonidine, gabapentin, hydromorphone, levobupivacaine, lignocaine, methadone, mexiletine, morphine, oxycodone and tramadol have been used in the presence of renal failure, but do require specific precautions, usually dose reduction. Aspirin, dextropropoxyphene, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and pethidine, should not be used in the presence of chronic renal failure due to the risk of significant toxicity.
1264863 tn?1391121793 So he offered Dilaudid (hydromorphone), and Opana ER (oxymorphone). I at the time had no idea what those drugs were and he wasen't saying much except that my pain is 24/7 so I should be on something that is treating me all the time. My point was that if I do all this message, acupuncture, pain management theropy etc how will I ever know if it is working if I am on a ER drug? It doesn't give me the freedom to NOT have drugs in my system.

Avatar m tn After 5 hours of waiting and then some scolding a nurse comes in and says here she gave you 4 percocet 5/500. I look at the discharge paperwork and in all caps it says "NO REFILLS FROM URGENT CARE. NO MORE PAIN MEDICINE TO BE PRESCRIBED FROM THIS CLINIC." At that point I was so mad.
8487796 tn?1398347327 the opana and percocet can give false positives. They usually send the urine off to a lab which breaks it down to the specific drug.
Avatar m tn You could look into Oxycontin as an extended release med if the morphine you were taking was also long acting. Also, oxymorphone and hydromorphone come in both extended and immediate release form. Fentanyl is also another long acting med to look into. Oxycodone IR or roxicodone is a good immediate release med for chronic pain. I had no idea morphine raised bilirubin levels. Of course stay away from any combo meds that contain acetaminophen or tylenol such as vicodin and percocet.
10683890 tn?1412897406 I jumped off 150 mg of oxy/nalexone/hydromorphone after a YEAR of tapering. I'd started on high doses of Fentanyl and hydro after having 3 surgeries in 3 years. I tapered and I was miserable while I was doing it. So finally I just had enough and jumped. That's a pretty high dose and it wasn't pretty. But I had clonidine, and all the vit/min and great family support. That was also the night I found this forum which was and is a Godsend.
Avatar m tn I am tapering off of them because of this and doing a fast taper at that because I HATE the feeling of not wanting to do anything I was on 400 mgs ms a day every 6 hrs and 15 mgs hydromorphone 4 to 5 ad ay for BTP I went from this to 50 mgs ms and 5 HY a day within a week and tomorrow to NO ms and keep the hydro and taper from there
822153 tn?1333066595 how can I get them to understand that they do not benefit me at all???? I had tried some hydromorphone (sp?) and that worked wonders!!!My friend had taken mercy on me and gave me a couple.But, how can I get them to understand that I need to be on something stronger withpout sounding like I'm a "seeker"???And, what are my other choices anyways??Any advice/feedback would be appreciated.Thanks!
Avatar n tn Hi There!! Likely, your friend will have to internally realize he has a problem, before he'll take steps to change his behaviour. I might suggest you have him read through a bunch of these posts(steer him here by saying you did a search on OC's, and found a bunch of info, good and bad(like a few threads down "effects of percocet and oxycontin") Avoiding the A word(addiction) is probably a good idea at this point.
Avatar n tn The familial mediteranean fever attacks caused very severe stomach ache which doctors treated with Demerol injections and the not so severe with Dilaudid, then percocet. Finally a combination of Colchicine .06mg and two tablets of percocet daily reduced the severe attacks greatly and the daily pains were tolerable. Not knowingly I used to drink after work one or two scotch glasses. Never been drunk in my life. I stopped dinking any Alchohol more than 10 years ago.
