What is stronger oxycodone, lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) or vicodin?

What is stronger  oxycodone, lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) or vicodin?

DEPENDS: It literally depends on the strength of the dose. It's like asking what weighs more - a pound of bricks or a pound of feathers? There are dosages of the oxycodone and hydrocodone that are relatively equal (supposedly) in potency or pain relieving strength. But medications (and dosages) can affect everyone differently. ...Read more

Would Ultram (tramadol) ease hydrocodone withdrawals?

Would Ultram (tramadol) ease hydrocodone withdrawals?

Controversial: There are studies on both sides of this issue, with some researchers finding that tramadol did reduce withdrawal, while others finding that it either did very little, or in some cases actually made it worse. A problem is that doses of ultram in the therapeutic range (300-400 mg/day) can cause seizures. My patients have told me mostly that ultram did very little for them, but a few got + results. ...Read more

I was prescribed lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) for pain. I have hiatal hernia, the heartburn is bad, ?

I was prescribed lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) for pain. I have hiatal hernia, the heartburn is bad, ?

Lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) bad idea: Lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) should not be use for hiatal hernia pain. If you have a big hiatal hernia you may be masking pain from an ulcer or low blood flow to the stomach. If you have just heartburn then once or twice a day Nexium (esomeprazole) is an excellent choice. An endoscopy should be done to check for ulcers or infection with a bacteria called h. Pylori. All else fails then surgery is a good choice. ...Read more

I'm taking 5-325mg percocet. which percocet contains no tylenol (acetaminophen)?

I'm taking 5-325mg percocet. which percocet contains no tylenol (acetaminophen)?

There aren't any: Let me explain - "Cet or cette" at the end of medications means it contains acetaminophen or tylenol.

It also comes in sustained release long-acting versions in doses ranging from 10mg - 80 mg. ...Read more
