Burn after chem peel: raw red tender moist! Applied fucidine + hydrocort 0, 1 + cicalfate post-act! Now it's dry but darknening! How to avoid PIH????

Avoid sun: Avoid sun exposure, stay indoors. Apply lots of moisturizer (ie: Aquaphor, Vaseline, Cetaphil or CeraVe lotion or cream) until skin completely healed. Aquaphor can cause acne but can be soothing for raw or cracked or burned skin. Avoid makeup or sunscreen until skin completely healed. Use SPF 30 or higher with zinc oxide, hat, sunglasses. Start bleaching cream after skin completely healed. ...Read more

Acetaminophen: Hi. Acetaminophen (aka Tylenol) can become toxic in doses exceeding 4 grams in a 24-hour period. 3.5 pills (even strongest Acetaminophen dose of 500 mg/pill) will not exceed the safe Acetaminophen dose. Warn her of the Acetaminophen risk. If pain is severe, her doctor can write her for a narcotic that does not contain acetaminophen. ...Read more

I took 1 and a half hydroco/apap tab 5-325mg a few hours ago. Now I feel extremely drowsy, weak, and anxious. Is it just my anxiety or something else?

Hydrocodone is: An opiate analgesic whose side effects include drowsiness and should be expected after taking that medication. Certain opiates can also have unusual side effects such as a feeling of nervousness. Not having any information on your general health except "behavioral therapy" your question is difficult to answer but you should be ok so long as you are using the hydrocodone appropriately. ...Read more

Can you take hydroco-tylenol and indomethacin at the same time?

Can you take hydroco-tylenol and indomethacin at the same time?

Yes: No problems doing so.

The question to ask is whether it's all for the same cause of pain - if it is, then what doctors sometimes do is stay with one drug and increase its dose rather than adding another.

However, if they're for two separate causes of pain - like the indomethacin is for gout inflammation and hydrocodone/Tylenol for something else - then having both sounds especially reasonable. ...Read more

I was prescribed hydroco 5-325 every 4 hrs as needed for an abscess tooth. I took one 2 hrs ago, and I'm still in agonizing pain. Can I take another?

Follow your Rx: It is important to follow your prescription as it was provided to you. If you feel like it is not adequate, I would contact your prescribing doctor. Although it is common to take 1-2 tablets of that dose every 4-6 hours, only your prescribing doctor, or someone that can act as one, should be providing you with advice to modify your prescription drugs. Consider a private consultation with MD. ...Read more

I took Aleve (naproxen) today an wanted to know if it was safe to take hydroco/apap 5-325 with it?

I took Aleve (naproxen) today an wanted to know if it was safe to take hydroco/apap 5-325 with it?

Yes: If you have to take a narcotic for severe pain, then the vicodin (hydrocodone) is appropriate. It is mixed with tylenol, (acetaminophen) which is also called Acetaminophen or apap. Tylenol (acetaminophen) is a different category of analgesic than aleve, which is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (nsaid). You may safely take all three together without untoward effects (narcotic, tylenol, (acetaminophen) nsaid). A few days should be plenty. ...Read more

I was prescribed cyclobenzapr 10mg, methocarbamol 750mg, hydrococo/apap 5-325mg, and promethazine 25mg. Is it safe to take these meds together?

I was prescribed cyclobenzapr 10mg, methocarbamol 750mg, hydrococo/apap 5-325mg, and promethazine 25mg. Is it safe to take these meds together?

Maybe not: If you take all of the above medications at the same time, you could become extremely sleepy and weak. It's also unusual to take cyclobenzaprine and Methocarbamol together at the same time, since they do the same thing. Promethazine is for nausea and vomiting. You would also probably get a very dry mouth and possibly a headache. The effects of these drugs are additive. Call your doctor. ...Read more

I have a severe tooth abscess and the pain is far past unbearable. I'm taking 10-325 hydrocod/apap every 2 hours and 800 mg ibuprofen 4 times a day.?

Tooth abscess: When is your appointment with your dentist to have that tooth treated? I think you should be seen ASAP as an emergency. Pills will not resolve your problem, and they don't seem to be doing much for you now, anyway. No need to suffer, just have it treated. ...Read more
