Please advise what is the difference between hydrocodone apap 7.5-750 and vicodin extra strength?

Please advise what is the difference between hydrocodone apap 7.5-750 and vicodin extra strength?

Non- narcotic amount: I think the difference is in the amount of Acetaminophen in this combined preparation. The amount of narcotic painkiller (hydrocodone) is most likely the same, 7.5 mg.

Hydrocodone (Definition)

Hydrocodone or dihydrocodeinone is a semi-synthetic opioid derived from two naturally occurring opiates: Codeine or thebaine. It is an orally active narcotic analgesic and antitussive. It is available in tablet, capsule, and syrup form. It is used to treat moderate to severe pain or as an antitussive to treat cough. Hydrocodone affects pain by ...Read more

Yes: I will avoid more than 4 gr a day. If you don't have pain don't use it. Check with your doctor for alternatives. Depending if its a chronic pain or a new onset of pain. Alternatives are aleve (naproxen) 200mg twice a day, tramadol, and others available. Consult your physician.

If you stop taking norcos, (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) can a drop show up negative five days later? Herniated l5

If you stop taking norcos, (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) can a drop show up negative five days later? Herniated l5

Don't Count on it: By a drop, I assume you mean a drug screen. The removal of drugs from the blood stream to a point where they are undetectable by common drug tests is variable for different patients.

How long will six percocet 5 stay in your urine, and two Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) fives?

How long will six percocet 5 stay in your urine, and two Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) fives?

In theory, ~1 day...: We estimate how long it takes body to get rid of drug at 5 half-lives. Half-life is time it takes for drug level to drop by 50%. So after 5 half-lives, you're down to 3.125% if I did my math correctly, which is essentially out of system. Oxycodone stays in body 3-4.5hrs depending upon reference (http://www. Rxlist. Com/oxycontin-drug/clinical-pharmacology. Htm). Metabolism is affected by many variabl

See detox: Please see a detoxification specialist. I don't think that this is something that you can get advice on in this forum and you need a physician to prescribe your meds anyway.

Is it okay that I took 7.5/750 hydrocodones over a 4 hour period?

Is it okay that I took 7.5/750 hydrocodones over a 4 hour period?

Maybe: Taking tylenol (acetaminophen) or Codeine more frequently than suggested can cause nausea, lightheadness, possibly liver issues and many other problems. If you have other medical problems or take other medications the complications could be increased. Try to minimize over medication when possible.

Hydrocodone/Apap: The first number is the amount of hydrocodone in each tablet, so 7.5 mg, 5 mg, and 5 mg, and the second number is the amount of Acetaminophen (tylenol) in each tablet, so 325 mg or 500 mg.

I take hydrocodone 7.5 I take hydrocodone 7.5 4 a day four 3 days how long will it stay in my system

Less than a Day: The half-life of hydrocodone is about 5 hours. This means that the drug should be out of you system (by effect) within 15 hours. The drug will still be detectable within your urine for 48 hours or longer.

On hydrocodone 5/500 for 7 years before asking for dose increase. Is hydrocodone 5/325 a weaker medicine?

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.

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

I'm taking 7.5/325 hydrocodone 2every 4-6 hrs but its not helping at all I've got c.R.P.S & its just getting worse. What's the next pain medicne I could take since this isn't working! Thanks?

See a pain specialis: Complex regional pain syndrome can be tough to treat. Sometimes nerve blocks can help. Just going up on pain pills will not solve the problem long-term. Ask your primary doctor to refer you to an anesthesiologist, a doctor who specializes in pain management. This kind of physician can help manage your pain meds, and see if there is a nerve block that can help you. Good luck!

I was taking 2 7.5mg hydrocodone every 5 hrs. My dr. Switched me to 2 5mg methadone a day. Will there be a lot of difference?

Of course: Methadone is much more potent than hydrocodone as well as longer half life. Just follow your treating physician advice. Take care.
