Have the makers of Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) 10/325 weakened the active ingredients?

Have the makers of Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) 10/325 weakened the active ingredients?

Weak Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen): Hello. I doubt that 10mg hydrocodone is weaker. You are most likely dealing with tolerance issues with Hydrocodone. Other scenario, which happened to 2 of my patients (BEFORE they started locking up their Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen)) is a family member well versed with opiates, swapped out their Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) for OTC aspirin. No wonder they weren't getting the same relief! Their pharmacist noted incorrect pill type in bottle ...Read more

When should we use solpadeine of gsk instead of panadol (acetaminophen) advance ? Is it the same strength of panadol (acetaminophen) extra ?

When should we use solpadeine of gsk instead of panadol (acetaminophen) advance ? Is it the same strength of panadol (acetaminophen) extra ?

It depends,,,: From what i gather, these are similar to tylenol (acetaminophen) in usa, only they have some other things added depending on which derivative you use. For example, the solpedeine migraine has Ibuprofen and Codeine along with the paracetamol/tylenol (acetaminophen) in it and panadol. This gives more pain relief and Ibuprofen can control inflammation also. So these differences can give different effects, etc.. Best of luck. ...Read more

Tramadol/codeine: These are two different molecules. While there are fancy tables equating doses - there have never been any comparative studies actually studying the equivalent dosing amounts. Both help with pain and certainly one cannot equate how much tramadol equals 500mg Codeine. ...Read more
