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

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 more
Be careful: These three medications should be safe to take provided you take the dose that you were prescribed.

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
Lortab/lorcet: Lortab is Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen and Lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) is the same except a higher amount of hydrocodone. So it would make no sense to take these two together. It would be like doubling up on anyone of the medications. I doubt very much if this was the advice from the person who prescribed this for your. ...Read more

Use non-narcotic med: If you know you have crohn's disease (cd), you should avoid narcotics as you will get used to them and your body could create pain to get the drug.
