What is the price range of endocet?

What is the price range of endocet?

Variable: Endocet is a particular brand of oxycodone, and it comes in different strengths. From what I see in my area (near Providence RI), the 5 mg strength costs about 50 cents per tablet (5 mg oxycodone/325mg tylenol), while the the 10 mg strength (also with 325mg tylenol) costs about a dollar a tablet. There may be other generic forms that cost less, and chains may have $4 generic prescriptions. ...Read more

Pain during my football games. How long does endocet stay in your system?

Pain during my football games. How long does endocet stay in your system?

Many days: If you are a football player (and 41 is a tad old for that), and you are being drug-tested, hydrocodone will stay in urine for 2-3 days, depending on how much you took how often for how long. It can be as much as 5 days with higher doses and more sensitive testing. If you are using it by prescription, testing shouldn't matter. If not, STOP and get help stopping if you need it. ...Read more

Do pharmacies carry endocets?

Do pharmacies carry endocets?

Yes: Endocet is one major brand of a combination product with oxycodone and tylenol (acetaminophen). There are many such brands, and not every pharmacy may carry all of them. They are essentially equivalent, and unless the doctor checks a box that you can only get the brand written for, the pharmacy may exchange another equivalent product for it. Most pharmacies will carry 3 or 4 of the major brands of these drugs. ...Read more

How much time does a 7.5/325 mg of endocet stay in your system for a urine test?

How much time does a 7.5/325 mg of endocet stay in your system for a urine test?

Depends: If it is one time use - a single dose - it is unlikely to be detected for more than 24-36 hours. If taken regularly for some period of time, it can be detected for 3-4 days, rarely 5. If this is prescribed to you, bring your prescription. If not, you shouldn't be taking it, and I would worry more about whether you have a drug problem than about getting caught. ...Read more

No: Opioids are not the treatment of choice for fibromyalgia. Plus the combination you were given could increase the risk of accidental overdose and death.

There are none...: Even the strongest opiates only "take the edge off" for people in chronic pain. Meds are only one part of dealing with the pain.

In chronic pain, it's just part of the plan. ...Read more
