Can I take fioricet and norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) together?

Can I take fioricet and norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) together?

Theoretically yes: You could combine these medications, however I would talk to your provider about why you are taking these meds. Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) is prescribed for pain, while Fioricet is prescribed for headaches. Unfortunately, it can also cause rebound headaches. While you could combine these meds, I would not and I would get clear indications for each.

I'm 18 weeks pregnant my ob said I couldn't take norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) or FioRicet for my migraines, but another ob in the same practice said it was OK? I'm confused

Risk/benefit ratio: This is an example of risk/benefit ratio, the situation is if you migraines are to the point that you may end up in the emergency room where they would need narcotic to relieve your pain, it is better to take a smaller dose of narcotic to relieve pain. These medication do affect your fetus but in lower doses and short term use they do not have long term effects to the fetus.

Ok to take vicodin n nyquil together?

Ok to take vicodin n nyquil together?

Vicodin + NyQuil: Do not take both of these drugs together. Nyquil has a significant amount of alcohol. This combination would be the same as taking vicodin with an alcohol beverage. This combination will have an additive depressive effect on your body systems and could very well have serious adverse consequences.

Why is vicodin so bad?

It depends: Your question is somewhat vague. All medications when appropriately prescribed for its indication and taken as directed by a physician should not be a problem. Vicodin is hydrocodone and Acetaminophen and is indicated for moderate to severe pain. The issue is the misuse/abuse of the medication. It has the potential for physical dependence, cause respiratory depression when taken in excess & death.

I am trying to get a script for my Vicodin.?

In person evaluation: If you need a prescription for an opioid like Vicodin, you need to seek an inperson evaluation for appropriateness. An online physician source isn't a feasible, or appropriate, mechanism for something like this. I do wish you the best of luck though and hope your issue can be addressed sooner rather than later.

Symptoms of vicodin abuse?

Addiction: Addiction alters one's ability to think clearly, make good choices and use sound judgement. It affects lives negatively usually in the form of time spent obsessing over obtaining the drug, and using the drug. As a result, relationships start suffering due to lack of nurturing and the person may even start missing work. The addict can no longer feel normal without the substance they are abusing.

Is it safe to take apex and vicodin?

Apex and vicodin: The only reference to apex I could find was that it is a medication syringe. Vicodin is designed as a tablet to be swallowed whole. It should not be crushed, or tampered with in any way. This is responsible use of medications. As a rule vicodin has to be swallowed whole and taken according to the md's strict instructions.

Is it easy to get addicted to vicodin?

Is it easy to get addicted to vicodin?

It depends: Addiction is a disease characterized by craving, thinking about med all the time, overusing (taking more than prescribed) and results in harm to the person (dui, loss of job, family, etc). Risk of addiction is based on genetic and environmental factors. Some people get addicted easily, some never do. Lortab is one of the most abused drugs on the market but most people don't develop an addiction.
