Vicodin and tylenol 3

Common Questions and Answers about Vicodin and tylenol 3

vicodin

Avatar n tn Tramadol is not even a narcotic or opiate. Its not similar to vicodin either. Tylenol 3 is a very weak opiate. It acts like most pain killers. It blocks out the opiade receptors in your brain that make you feel pain.
Avatar f tn So i posted couple days ago bout my severe migrains i finally went to my first prenatal appt foundout i was 10 weeks not 12. He presc me tylenol 3 which has codeine in it he said its safe but im kinda scared to take it :( will somebody let me know if its safe??
Avatar f tn I would take tylenol only, I fear you are trading one addictive med for another.
Avatar f tn For example, Vicodin can be 5mg of hydro and 500mg of tylenol as can Lortab. Or Vicodin can be 10mg of hydro and 325 mg of tylenol and so can Lortab. So they only way one will be stronger than the other as if the Vicodin was 5/500 and the Lortab is 10/325. I hope I have been clear in anwsering your question. If I haven't been please let me know.
Avatar n tn Vicodin is not quite as strong as percocet and you have to make sure you dont go over the tylenol. How much tylenol is in each tablet? However it is still a narcotic and will keep you from going into w/d's.
12103503 tn?1423448886 Vicodin and Tylenol 3 are both Category C drugs for pregnant women.  According to the FDA, this means "Animal reproduction studies have shown an adverse effect on the fetus and there are no adequate and well-controlled studies in humans, but potential benefits may warrant use of the drug in pregnant women despite potential risks."  In other words, it hasn't been proven harmful, but it hasn't been proven safe, either.
331213 tn?1217164831 I suffer from severe migraines and I am 16 weeks pregnant, I take 2 tylenol 3 (tylenol with codiene) in the morning and 2 in the afternoon, they help, might want to check with your dr as they are a narcotic
Avatar n tn that means 5 mg of hydrocodone and 500 mg of tylenol....at any rate..3 pills a day is very doable...but i do know that it is still hard...my average dose was 6 pills a day...you can start cutting down and then quit or just go ahead and quit....u will feel kinda clammy and flu-like for 4-5 days and the physical part will be pretty much over...then you just gotta get your mind to work with you as with quitting any habit...there is lots of support here...
Avatar f tn My pain management doctor recently switched me to hydrocodone 10-500 due to pharmacy crack downs and I am itching like crazy and having bad nightmares and don't sleep well and grind my teeth bad. I must be having an allergic reaction? I'm not allergic to anything but this now. I'm suffering in pain cause I can't take these side effects! I was on Oxycodone 10-325 and didn't have any problems.
Avatar f tn Hi there and welcome.First,the pain in your nose is definately from the tylenol in the vicodin.Try straight saline solution (nasal spray) to rehydrate the nasal cavity.It will work miracles!Give your nose time to heal...stop snorting vicodin...it's not worth it.How long have you been snorting vicodin?Good luck to you and keep uis posted!!
Avatar n tn For each of these I was prescribed either hydrocodone (vicodin) and tylenol 3. I have terrible reactions to these meds.I feel sick to my stomach, very dizzy, and I usually end up vomiting or having dry heaves (not fun when you have abdominal stitches for a gallbladder extraction.) They didn't help much with the pain either and I decided the pain was preferable to the side effects of the drugs.
Avatar f tn The lowest amount of tylenol that I know of that comes with hydrocodone would be in Norco tablets. They contain 10mg of the hydrocodone and only 325mg of tylenol. Maybe talk to your doctor about switching you to oxycodone instead? Oxycodone comes in tablet form that's just pure oxycodone, it has no tylenol or acetaminophen in it at all. It's stronger than hydrocodone, too, so the 5mg tablet (the smallest one they make) might even work as well for you as the 7.5mg vicodin.
Avatar m tn Tylenol 3 contains 30mg of codeine phosphate and 300mg of acetaminophen. The Canadian version also contains 15mg caffeine which is not present in the American version. Both Canadian and American versions also have traces of sulfites. In its generic form, Tylenol 3 has acetaminophen hydrocodone which is a imitation of codeine.
Avatar f tn I am strongly against the use of acetaminophen (aka Tylenol) as part of the treatment of long term chronic pain. Vicodin, Percocet, Tylenol #3, Tylenol #4 are OK for short term acute pain from surgeries etc. but using them long term everyday as a regimen for treatment of chronic pain is very damaging to the liver. Opioids alone DO NOT damage internal organs. They are one of the safest medicines out there for pain.
7369582 tn?1395996075 Definitely do tylenol and ice packs first, only use the hardcore meds of you absolutely cannot stand the pain
Avatar n tn yes, percocet is a class 2 narcotic and vicodin is a class 3. Percocet is an oxycodone with tylenol, and vicodin is a hydrocodone with tylenol. If ever you need a refill you can't have a doctor call in a class 2. Both are addictive equally...
Avatar n tn Try Tylenol 3 with codeine it's safer than vico den when pregnant
Avatar n tn Not sure what the effects are on the baby, other than the vicodin is passing thru the placenta. Could they put you on say a high dose ibuprofen and tylenol w/codeine combo and take you off the vic? I've been put on this combo for pain after giving birth and while nursing. Don't know if it is strong enough for your condition to be managable or not. Try seeing if you can't get another concocction of drugs that have less issues. Best of luck.
Avatar f tn Furthermore, codeine is not the active ingredient in Vicodin. The active ingredient in Vicodin is hydrocodone and a standard Vicodin contains 5 mg. And you have to specifically ask the pharmacist for this tylenol/codeine/caffeine combo, it is not out on the shelves, even in Canada. I'd ask your wife just why she decided to purchase it? Good luck.
Avatar n tn I have went through withdraws for two days before I gave in. I take 3 every 3 to 4 hrs a day. Please let me know what to do. If nothing works, I will call a dr and take the steps I need to take.
Avatar f tn I could barely talk. I had Vicodin, Tylenol, and Aspirin and was taking all three and still nearly in tears. I felt like all my left teeth were being crushed. I went in to ask a different dentist since mine wasn't in and he told me that because of the amount of pain and how far in my mouth and face it was referring, I should get it extracted, but he'd have to use only local anesthetic and it would be very stressful for me, so the choice was mine. I had him take it out.
Avatar m tn Given that your liver enzymes are high, I would use the vicodin cautiously and contact your doctor and explain that the vicodin makes your symptoms worse. Did the doctors do an ultrasound on your organs, especially the gall bladder? If so, did everything check out okay? Lastly, there are other pain medications that your doctor can prescribe that doesn't have tylenol within it to see if your symptoms improve. I wish you the very best and I hope you feel better soon.
1035252 tn?1427227833 Alright obviously it's a very bad idea to mix alcohol and tylenol, and normally I wouldn't even consider it. However...we have a gift certificate to a REALLY up-scale restaurant in our town, so DH and I are going out tonight...without the kids..for the first time in two years. we REALLY need it, lol. My question is this....I want to have a glass of wine, but I'm taking Vicodin for my migraines.
Avatar m tn Yesterday, 5 days after her latest chemo treatment her temperature went up 3 degrees above normal and again this morning. But her temp returns to normal after taking pain medication. Is the pain medication only masking an infection?
