Is taking 2 hydrocodone 5-325 the same as taking 1 hydrocodone 10-325?

Is taking 2 hydrocodone 5-325 the same as taking 1 hydrocodone 10-325?

No: The difference is that 2 of the 5/325 mg tabs would give you 650 mg of Acetaminophen (same as tylenol), whereas the 10/325 mg would only be 325 mg. The latest warnings indicate that you want to take the lowest dose of Acetaminophen possible, so my suggestion would be to take one of the 10/325 mg tabs instead of 2 of the 5/325 mg tabs. ...Read more

Theorectically: The problem is the 500/325 refers to the pill's content of acetaminophen which has increasingly been associated with liver damage. A stronger dosage would still potentially decrease the acetaminophen but increase the hydrocodone to 7.5 or 10 mg. ...Read more

Can you tell me if on hydrocodone 5/500 for 7 years before asking for dose increase. Is the hydrocodone 5/325 weaker med?

Less tylenol (acetaminophen): Because of an increased prevalence of tylenol overdoses and numbers of people with tylenol-induced liver problems, the FDA ruled that no acetaminophen-containing combination can have more than 325 mg. Pills with more than 325 mg will not be available in the near future. Talk to your doctor about your tylenol dose - it should not be more than 2000 mg a day in general. Opioids should never be only RX ...Read more

I took hydrocodone 5-325 a few hours ago. About 10 minutes ago I took 5000 mg of Tylenol, do I need to go to the er?

I took hydrocodone 5-325 a few hours ago. About 10 minutes ago I took 5000 mg of Tylenol, do I need to go to the er?

No: While your total dose definitely exceeds the daily recommendations of no more than 3000 mg a day, a one time, one day dose of 5325mg is not going to cause liver failure in a healthy adult. However, if you took that large dose with the intention of harming yourself, then an ER visit is definitely in order. ...Read more

I take hydrocodone 5-325 daily for chronic neck pain and migraines. How many per day can I take before it will hurt my organs?

I take hydrocodone 5-325 daily for chronic neck pain and migraines. How many per day can I take before it will hurt my organs?

Difficult to say: In general opioids are very safe long term. Perhaps even more dangerous is the tylenol (acetaminophen) often associated with the opioids - in your case the 325mg. Please be sure to keep total daily dosage under 4000mg, long term I would suggest less than 2000mg. Finally have your doc check liver and kidney function every 6months while on these meds. ...Read more

My legs are exceptionally jumpy after micro d; can I take hydrocodone 5/325 even after 600 mg ibuprofen, 300 mg gabapentin and soma (carisoprodol)?

My legs are exceptionally jumpy after micro d; can I take hydrocodone 5/325 even after 600 mg ibuprofen, 300 mg gabapentin and soma (carisoprodol)?

Care with narcotics: If your surgeon prescribed each of these medications for this situation then you are likely to be alright. The reality is, however, that "jumpy" legs are not necessarily going to be helped by a narcotic. That sounds more like a mild radiculopathic or neuropathic process. Gabapentin likely more effective--consider 1 extra gabapentin. Minimize Soma (carisoprodol) as sometimes problems--especially chronic use. ...Read more
