Difference between T3 (liothyronine) (codeine 30mg) and vicodin (hydrocodone 5mg).... Pros cons which is strong which lasts longer?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Same diff

Same class (iii) and are equianalgesic (eg 1 5/325 vicodin = 1 t#3).
Vicodin has hydrocodone, man made Codeine good for people who can't tolerate codeine. Sad thing? Usa = 2% of worlds population, uses 98% of the worlds vicodin prescriptions. Be careful about using short-acting narcotics for non-malignant pain. It's generally a bad long-term answer.
