Hi, I am having surgery... The me wants to put my on IR Nucynta (tapentadol) instead of Vicodin. How would it compare to Vicodin? What would be an equivalent dose

About equal: The dosing of IR Nucynta (tapentadol) and hydrocodone (the narcotic in Vicodin) are pretty equivalent. No table I could find shows direct comparison of Vicodin to Nucynta (tapentadol). But 4mg morphine=12mg Hydrocodone. 4mg morphine=10mg Nucynta (tapentadol). So pretty comparable. Hope this helps. Best of luck. Dr. R ...Read more

Can I take a Vicodin 16 hours after my last Tramadol dose without there being an interaction between them? My doctor switched me to Vicodin.

Vicodin question: Is it your prescriber's intent for you to discontinue Tramadol and only use Vicodin for breakthrough pain? 16 hour separation between the two medications is fine. Don't go mixing the two together. Your profile states that you are a young male patient. Be VERY careful with Vicodin use. It is not without short and long term side effects. ...Read more

Hi, I am having surgery. MD prescribed Nucynta (tapentadol). How would this compare to Vicodin? Which one is stronger? What would be an equivalent dose of both?

Similar: Nucynta (tapentadol) is similar in strength to vicodin and other opioids that are given for post op pain. There is no equivalent dose, so there is no answer to that question. When it was studied it was compared to oxycodone and was found to be just as effective. ...Read more

No dose change, but WHY some days when take my Vicodin I'm FINE then other times feel weak,tired,SOB? I do have myasthenia gravis. Any ideas?

INTERPRETATION: Vicodin is an opioid analgesic and has NO beneficial effect on the neuromuscular junctional issue in myasthenia. I am unaware if you are taking Mestinon (pyridostigmine) or steroids or other immunological agents, but if you are fluctuating, you do need specific meds for your weakness, in spite of prior thymectomy. Suggest a visit to a neurologist who focuses in neuromuscular areas. ...Read more

Will a prescribed dose of vicodin after wisdom tooth removal make me vomit?

Sometimes yes: Vicodin has that effect on some patients. Percocet is a similar drug with fewer GI side effects but is not prescribed as often because of its greater addictive potential. Once solution is to take an anti-emetic suppository. Also, you might experience fewer GI symptom if you do not use the generic. It costs more and insurance often do not pay but my patients report an improvement. See your surgeon. ...Read more

What does it say: on your prescription? And, if you DON'T have a prescription, then the proper amount would be none.
