Lorcet Plus Warnings And Recalls
40 year-old white woman with narcolepsy and cataplexy since childhood, plus migraines, still searching for an effective treatment.....?
Please repost: Please repost your question with an explanation of what you mean by "effective" treatment. What is "ineffective" about the current treatment regimen? Bearing in mind that both conditions are hereditary (though the genetics are complex) and the only REALLY effective treatment is to make a better choice of parents. ...Read moreSee 9 more doctor answers
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. As such, prolonged use should only be utilized under the close supervision of your physician or specialized pain practitioner.

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

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
If the bottle of lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) says take one every 4 hrs. For pain, the bottle would be empty in 10 days. Is that ok?
Maybe: We don't know how long your doctor wants you take the medication. Regardless, you better take them as needed, certainly you don't have to wake yourself at night to take them. ...Read more
