Roughly two 10mg: Lortab will be equivalent to 15mg oxycodone. However, people respond to hydrocodone and oxycodone differently and do not always react linearly to these dosing changes. I would recommend careful discussion with your prescriber before considering any changes. ...Read more

6mgs of ativan (lorazepam) equals how many mgs of clonazepam?

6mgs of ativan (lorazepam) equals how  many mgs of clonazepam?

Hard to say: Since it depends if we are talking about acutely, where it takes twice as much Clonazepam to equal the clinical effects of lorazepam. However, once Clonazepam reaches it's steady state, it is actually twice a potent as lorazepam. So, initially you might need 3 mg of Clonazepam four times a day for the first day to feel the same effects, but you quickly have to reduce down to 1 mg three time/d. ...Read more

How many mg of percocet does a tylox (oxycodone and acetaminophen) 5/500 equal?

How many mg of percocet does a tylox (oxycodone and acetaminophen) 5/500 equal?

No way to know: in every person, because there are individual differences, but in general hydrocodone is about 1/3 to 1/2 less potent than oxycodone, so that it takes 7.5 mg of hydrocodone to get equivalent pain relief as 5 mg of oxycodone. There can no longer be 500 mg of tylenol in EITHER preparation - the new FDA rules mandate that no more than 325 mg of acetaminophen be in any combination tablet of tylenol. ...Read more

Can I take Tylenol3 and naproxen together with 2mg of prazosin, 750mg of divalproex sodium, 10 mg clomipramine, 200 mg of quetiapine and clonazepam?

Yes but: Your medical regimen is becoming complicated and you risk encouraging a pattern of self-medicating. While there is an important place for medications in helping brains function better and people feeling better, be careful not to fall into the "chemical coper" trap. Discuss this with prescriber. I suggest having only one. ...Read more

No not recommended: Ambien (zolpidem) especially at higher doses may have some unpredictable / undesirable side effects. It can also cause dependency/tolerance issues.

Can you tell me is it bad to take 15-20 mg of Ambien (zolpidem) tonight if i took 50 mg of vicodin yesterday?

Yes it would be bad: and the fact that you are asking that online rather than of the prescriber would lead me to believe that either 1) it is NOT prescribed and/or 2) you do not want the prescriber to know how much you are taking. If you had 8 Vicodin or equivalent you are also pushing the tylenol (acetaminophen) to maximum levels you should be taking. The FDA has made 5 mg the recommended dose of Ambien in women;15-20 TOO MUCH. ...Read more

Yes & high Tylenol (acetaminophen): 5 yrs on solid dosing of vicodin even if it is only 5 mg can cause problems. Are you taking them through the night? what is your longest period without taking any? If you find that you cant go more than several hours before you notice increase of any: pain, sleeplessness,anxiety, sweats, tremor, nasal stuffiness or nose running, stomach cramping, nausea or diarrhea, you are in withdrawal. ...Read more

Which one is stronger... Ibuprofen 800 mg or vicodin 7.5/300 mg?? Which one should i start with for a pulled muscle in my shoulder

Recommend Ibuprofen: For muscle stains, recommend an anti-inflammatory like ibuprofen (Motrin) or naproxen (Aleve). Narcotics, like Vicodin, are only pain relievers and do nothing for inflammation brought on by a strain. Vicodin also has other undesirable side effects like constipation, drowsiness, and is not advised for a muscle strain. ...Read more

Nasal steroid?: Whether you can take these medications depend greatly on their adverse effects . Both Benadryl and Vicodin have sedating effect and Vicodin may cause abdominal upset for some people. However if the pain is bad, you may have little choice. If you are referring to nasal congestion, a nasal steroid will likely work better than an antihistamine. ...Read more

Real dangerous: You are setting yourself up for addiction (loss of control over drug use). Talk to the doctor who prescribes the Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) about your sleep problems. Adjusting the way you take it may solve the problem, or another safer agent can be used yo help you sleep. ...Read more

I've taken 10 mg Vicodin over the years for back problems, now I've been prescribed the 5 mg oxy.  How much different/ stronger?  Is this a small enou

Oxycodone stronger: Oxycodone is slightly better absorbed than hydrocodone. Also many patients report that 5mg oxycodone is equal to around 7,5mg of hydrocodone. Ultimately it depends upon your individual metabolism Either way, it appears that your dosing may have dropped. If the oxycodone works as well as the hydrocodone, then fine. If not, you need to report this to your physician and discuss changing the dosing ...Read more

Took dot drug test. I take 1 10 mg vicodin  at night for chronic hip pain prescribed. Will i pass dot test?

Don't know: If they are testing you because you were in an accident, they may well include opiates in the test, or if your job involves driving or the need for alertness, they may also include it. In general, they do not test for opiates for employment purposes. In any case, if you have a valid prescription and are taking that as prescribed, it should not be an issue when you eventually get to see a doctor. ...Read more

I suffered a neck injury and was prescribed 5-500 mg vicodin & took it 7 hrs ago. Is it safe to take 1 mg lorazepam for my anxiety (also prescribed)?

Yes: The combination of vicodin (narcotic pain med) and lorazepam (sedative hypnotic) will have additive effects of sedation and sleepiness. But if you're tolerating one of them, the other will probably be ok. Just be cautious about driving or other activities that require judgement. Vicodin typically lasts 3-5 hours, so it's mostly out of your system anyhow. ...Read more

Had a panic attack last night, took .25 mg xanax (alprazolam). Prescribed vicodin for my period and would like to take one today. Is this safe? No other meds.

Addiction: Wow. Vicodin, if it has any effect, can make anxiety worse. It is not an anxiolytic. Perhaps, it is time to take a big step back and look at your life. Having these pills at hand often represents an addict lifestyle. Now, in my book, addict is not a bad word. It is a disease. What would it be like for you to stop all pills and to look for natural and healthier ways to live; to manage stress? ...Read more

I am having a severe pelvic pain. Should i take ibuprofen 600 mg every 4 hours or vicodin ?

Would suggest: Ibuprofen over vicodin, but it is also important to find the cause of pain that you consider severe. Pelvic pain can be difficult to diagnose and can be something minor or something serious and you should be checked out just to make sure nothing serious is causing the pain. I hope that helps and that you feel better soon. ...Read more
