Lorcet Allergy In Children

Minutes to hours: If you are allergic to a drug, the reaction usually occurs within minutes and 2 hours. However if the reaction is a rash , it may take several days. Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) is not a highly allergenic drug although you may get side effects from the opiate it contains. ...Read more

I've been taking topamax (topiramate) 50 mg for about 3 weeks. I also take lorcet klonopin nadbflexaril. Is it safe to mix these?
No.: My bias is "no." it is unclear if you have just added topomax to this regimen or not. If so, and if you are scrupulous in making sure that you aren't doped up, confused, etc., it may be alright. I would have a frank discussion with your doctor about this. This combo of four drugs - all of which have potentially sedating effects - is worrisome. ...Read more

Long-term effects: Long-term utilization of opioids (narcotics) could possibly lead to the development of tolerance and also carries the risk of addiction.

I was wondering what are the long term-effects of taking hydrocodone (lorcet) + acetaminophen daily?
It depends: Lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) contains acetaminophen. I would discuss with the doctor who gave you the medicine about your daily total dose of Acetaminophen and your liver function. I would also tell you, there is not a reason for you to take Lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) long term. It is a short acting medicine used for a short time. Problems that aren't going away anytime soon, need a long acting medicine, not a short acting one. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Be careful: These three medications should be safe to take provided you take the dose that you were prescribed. Anaprox (naproxen) is fairly safe on its own, make sure you follow the dose instructions for Lorcet and Ativan carefully. If you take significantly too much of either in a short time you may have some trouble breathing. As always, if you experience any side effects or changes, contact your physician. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

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
