Probably: hydrocodone comes mixed usually with Tylenol (acetaminophen) at 5mg, 7.5mg and 10mg. What dose is too much depends on how long you have been taking this med. I would certainly not start a patient at that dose. When you take this you should not drive or drink or operate machinery. If you find yourself nodding out, falling asleep or exhibiting a change in your behavior please seek help.

Why does hydrocodone ease my pain?

Stimulates receptors: There are chemicals in our body that are similar to all "opiates" and there are receptors in our brain that recognize the presence of these chemicals. When either natural "neurotransmitters" or drugs like hydrocodone are present these receptors cause a decreased awareness of the sensation of pain being sent by nerves which are present specifically to signal pain / injury.

Why does hydrocodone make me itch?

Why does hydrocodone make me itch?

Hard to say: Because this is often an "idiosyncratic" reaction to opioids - one with great individual variation, which may be genetic in nature. Opioids cause release of histamine in most people, but it is usually mild; however, in some it is more severe and causes itching, and even hives, flushing and GI problems. Oxycodone does this less, as do some of the synthetic drugs like fentanyl. Talk to your doctor.
