Hydrocodone Bitartrate Oral Solution?
I know this is going to sound awful but I figured I should try anyway.

Just recently I was released from the hospital after a surgery. I as given prescriptions for Hydrocodone Bitartrate and Acetaminophen Oral solution and Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen pills but, while taking the dosage prescribed (for the oral solution), we were unable to manage my pain. I later called my doctor who simply told me "take more". My family has a history of having weak livers so the thought of taking such a large amount of Acetaminophen made me uncomfortable.

Anyway, I contacted my doctor who said I would be fine but I was still uncomfortable. While doing my own little research, I found that I could safely extract the hydrocodone from the pills (which honestly led to my boyfriend wondering if I was using it for more then just my pain) but I was unable to find if I could extract it from the oral solution....


My question is.. is there any way to extract the hydrocodone from the oral solution? Would the cold water extraction work?

I have a lot of experience with taking regular hydrocodone tabs but I have never had it in an oral solution before. It is 7.5mg/500mg per 15ml.

How do I do it?

Overdosing On Hydrocodone?
I just caught my boyfriend cheating on me. He's upset about it so he just took 6 pills of HYDROCODONE BITARTRATE & ACETAMINOPHEN tablets. The label says 5mg/500mg.

Should I take him to the doctor? Will
he overdose???
Well... after this incident the dumb a** got hungry and went to Souplantation and pigged out. He was fine. He's not a big guy at all so i wonder why nothing bad happened to him.

  that wont overdose him. He'll probably get a great buzz if he doesnt get sick and throw up, more than likely he will get a buzz.
I'd make sure he doesnt take anything else. I think he is also doing this so you will stay with him and forget it was his fault that he cheated on you.
Dont be fooled.
He will probably do it again.

What is the difference between Vicodin 7.5 750 and hydrocodone acetaminophen HP 10/660?
My Dr. changed my medication from Hydrocodone 7.5 750 to Hydrocodone Acetaminophen HP 10 660. What is the difference, if any, and how will the new med benefit me. What would be stronger than the Hydrocodone Acetaminophen HP 10 660, if that does not help? I am in alot of pain. Thanks

  The first number in either of the meds 7.5/750 and 10/660 is the miligrams of hydrocodone in the medication. The second number is the miligrams of acetaminophen. Vicodin and hydrocodone are the same drug, hydrocodone is just the generic name whereas Vicodin is the trade name. The med he changed you to has more of the narcotic, and less of the acetaminophin. As far as needing something stronger goes, that would be up to your doc. There are stronger drugs like oxycontin and hydromorphone, but I would hope you don't need those. Take care.

acetaminophen hydrocodone bitartrate stronger than Cyclobenzaprine?
which is stronger is it safe to take them together?

  Cyclobenzaprine is a muscle relaxant, Vicodin (acetaminophen hydrocodone bitartrate) is a pain killer. both these drugs do two different things, and whether or not you can take them together depends on your heals. I suggest you speak with the doctor who prescribed these to you prior to combining them.

What is better, Vicodin with a higher amount of Acetaminophen or less?
Is higher the Acetaminophen mg mean more aspirin? I went from 7.5/500mg to 7.5/750mg. And I think the other works better. Which is better? If the Acetaminophen is less is the Hydrocodone more or stronger?

  First of all acetaminophen is not aspirin, it is acetaminophen, which is tylenol. Acetaminophen is added to opiate pain killers because acetaminophen keeps the opiate working longer. In theory, more acetaminophen should keep the pain killer working longer.

Norco (Hydrocodone Bitartrate and Acetaminophen)?
Has the drug Norco ever been used to treat anxiety or depression or both? If so, is it still used to treat either depression or anxiety?

  I know that there has been research into the antidepressant properties of opioids, and recently, the focus has been on Suboxone (buprernorphine/naloxone). However, don't get your hopes up, the stigma surrounding the "addictive" nature of opioids will never go away-everybody is so stuck on that, and so brainwashed and misinformed about the nature of addiction, etc, the majority of the medical community seems to view it as a waste of time to further look into the possibilities. Norco would not be a good choice though, it has acetaminophen in it, and long term everyday use causes too many health risks-thats why they are looking into Suboxone; I think a lot of the research is happening in the UK. You should really look it up in online medical journals, its very interesting.

I am taking hydrocodone bitartrate 10mg/325mg and was wondering if that is a high dose?
The reason why I am asking is because I have chonic pain and it does not seem to work. what would be the difference between 10mg/325 and the 10/750?

  The Hydrocodone that you are taking is not a high dose. There is a 750 that you can take if your Dr. allows it or he may tell you to try taking two of the 350mg tablets. If the medication isn't working for your pain you should call him/her and let them know that it isn't taking care of the problem. You shouldn't have to be in pain and maybe he can prescribe a stronger dose or even the extra strength Vicodin (Hydrocodone(generic for Vicodin) worked in a pharmacy for 6 yrs. filling scripts. Good luck to you , I hope that you feel better and call your Dr.

what's the difference between oxycodone hydrochloride and oxycodone with acetaminophen?
And what does acetaminophen do when mixed with oxycodone or hydrocodone?

  Oxycodone hydrochloride - The narcotic pain reliever is mixed with aspirin

Oxycodone Acetaminophen - The narcotic pain reliever is mixed with Acetaminophen
Acetaminophen relieves pain by elevating the threshold to sensing pain. It reduces fever through its action on the heat-regulating center of the brain. The combination of oxycodone and acetaminophen or hydrocodone acetaminophen achieves greater pain relief than either taken separately

I just got my wisdom teeth taken out and was prescribed hydrocodone bitartrate & apap?
When i got home i drank some milk and took the first pill, it says take every four hours so after that I took another and within minutes I threw it all up, including the pill. I fell asleep after that then had some jello. I then proceeded to vomit again. Is it the anesthesia that's had a bad effect? Or is this just normal?

What is the difference between Codeine Sulfate, Codeine, and Hydrocodone?
I have chronic cough and muscle stiffness and pain often. I have been prescribed everything from Tylenol 3 (30mg Codeine and Tylenol) to Hydrocodone 10mg/1000mg.

I've noticed that codeine seems quite weaker than Hydrocodone. If I take 2 hydrocodones, the same feeling takes 3-4 codeine tablets to acheive the desired feeling.

Recently, someone told me I should try Codeine Sulfate (60MG), they are small white tablets and contain no Tylenol, Asprin, or Ibuprofen. If I take 2 of these, will they be more similar to Hydrocodone or the Tylenol 3's?


What is the difference between Codeine Sulfate, Codeine, and Hydrocodone?
Repkying to first answer someone left.

Tylenol 3's and 4's are the combination of codeine with acetemetophin.

Hydrocodones (Vicodin, Lortab...etc) is the combination of Hydrocodone with acetemetophin.

Vicodin 5/500 is 5mg hydrocodone/500mg acetemetohin.

Tylenol 3's are 30mg Codeine / 300mg Acetemetophin.

Hydrocodone must be a different form of codeine that is stronger. MY main question is....What is the difference between Hydrocodone and Codeine? And where does codeine sulfate fit in the mix.

I do like your answer, it just lacks the main information I need.

  I'm not familiar with codeine sulfate vs. codeine.

I know that hydrocodone is a combination of codeine plus an NSAID. I think it's acetaminophen.

Hydrocodone will be more powerful than codeine alone, because the 2 drugs combined provide a stronger effect than either would separately. You can get the same thing from taking codeine and tylenol pills separately, 10 mg and 1000mg respectively. It's the same thing.

What does the HP in Vicodin HP stand for?
I don't need an lesson in vicodin and hydrocodone. I know all about it. I'm just curious as to what it stands for. I know ES is extra strength but i'm not sure about HP. Maybe high performance? Does anybody KNOW?
Sal*UK - it's HP not HB
and i asked what the initials HP stand for not what vicodin is made of
Tulla - actually
vicodin HP is 10mg hydrocodone with 660 mg of acetaminophin
vicodin ES is 7.5 mg hydrocodone with 750mg acetaminophin
vicodin is 5 mg hydrocodone with 500 mg acetaminophin.

about oxycodone and acetaminophen?
So, Im taking oxycodone for back pain and am concerned about the acetaminophen, as it supposedly causes liver damage. Ive heard of soaking them in water then filter it to remove the acetaminophen. Does anyone know if this actually works? Thank You.

  This is not a useful method for pain control. This is an addict's method. If you are taking 12x325 or 8x500 or whatever adding up to 4000mg a day over time, max safe dose, liver damage is unlikely in the absence of alcohol. If you need more than that or are on for years, your doc can prescribe pure opioid.

acetaminophen?
why do they tell u not to mix night quil liquid with another medication that contains acetaminophen??? will it cause overdose if i took 5 tablespoons of the liquid with only 1 500mg tablet of acetaminophen?

  5 tablespoons of Nyquil seems like a heck of a lot.
Yes, that's why they tell you that. Acetaminophen, when used correctly, is great for pain and fever. But in higher than recommended doses, it can cause liver damage. That's why they tell you not to mix medications. In the dose you just described, you were probably close to exceeding the maximum recommended daily dose of it.

Out of codeine and dextropropoxyphene, which is the strongest pain reliever?
Particularliy in combination with acetaminophen (Paracetamol, Tylenol) as follows:
500mg acetaminophen and 8mg codeine phosphate
325mg acetaminophen and 50mg dextropropoxyphene napsylate

Reply
  TYLENOL WITH CODEINE
500mg acetaminophen and 8mg codeine phosphate

DARVOCET

325mg acetaminophen and 50mg dextropropoxyphene napsylate

Your question is which is stronger- well the Darvocet is.

But the real question should be- what is more effective for pain.

That answer is- It depends on the type of pain and severity.

Darvocet is stronger.

Liquid Hydramine and Hydrocodone mixed?
Hey guys. This is the second time I've mixed 5 pink colored vics with some hydramine ( little). WHat are the interaction of these two drugs mixed together? My guess is the hydramine potenates the hydrocodone and makes it last longer because thats what it seems to do. I'd like a good answer from some1 more experianced then me, please.
wow thanks man
no its a new kind of vic. I kno because i searched it, and i got it from my medicine cabinet lol. It says hydrocodone right on it.

  I did a little bit of research on this for you.

It doesn't appear that either drug causes the other to remain in the system longer. Hydrocodone undergoes complex metabolism by several enzyme groups, so it's unlikely that diphenhydramine would slow its metabolism.

I think the experience you're having is only the additive sedating effect of the two drugs. Both individually tend to make you sleepy - together even more so.

If you're looking to potentiate the analgesic effect of the hydrocodone, combine it with a double dose of cough syrup - maybe 50-60mg of dextromethorphan. This strategy has been clinically demonstrated to reduce tolerance to opioids and increase their analgesic effect.

  Hycodan has an ingredient that dries you out realy bad if taken at recreational doses, tussinex has an antihistamine that stops the itching and the hydrocodone is extended release, 12 hours. Tussinex is WAY better.

How does acetaminophen reduce fever, and is it bad to use when trying to get over a virus?
I've been sick for about a day now and I have to be somewhere very important tomorrow. Is acetaminophen slowing my healing process?
Storman Norman
04/22/10
Reply
  Acetaminophen is an analgesic so there is no way it can affect your healing process. The main mechanism of action of paracetamol is considered to be the inhibition of cyclooxygenase (COX), recent findings suggest that it is highly selective for COX-2. Cyclooxygenase (COX) is an enzyme that is responsible for formation of important biological mediators called prostanoids, including prostaglandins, prostacyclin and thromboxane. Pharmacological inhibition of COX can provide relief from the symptoms of inflammation and pain.

  It's not impossible to extract the Tylenol. You can find instructions on Erowid for cold water extraction. But it's not smart, and nobody does it unless they're tryign to get high. Ask your doctor for somethign without Tylenol.

Acetaminophen has been linked to Respiratory Disease and Lung Function capacity reduction?
"Oxidative stress may increase the risk of asthma, contribute to asthma progression, and decrease lung function. Previous research suggests that use of acetaminophen, which is hypothesized to reduce antioxidant capacity in the lung, is associated with an increased risk of asthma. We hypothesized that acetaminophen use may also be associated with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and decreased lung function".

Could High Acetaminophen use be linked to Sleep Apnea as well?
Black Sheep 1
01/13/08
Reply
  The study you cited (McKeever, Am. J Resp Crit Care, 2005) is a population-based study examining the effect of chronic, daily use of pain relievers on lung function. Of the 3 types studied (aspirin, acetaminophen, and ibuprofen), the rates were 8%, 4%, and 2% respectively among daily users. Most people use pain relievers for temporary relief. If they suffer from chronic pain, they should seek medical attention.

Sleep apnea is a disorder where patients breath inadequately or stop breathing during sleep. The most common cause is obstructive sleep apnea, where the soft tissue in the mouth/neck collapse and impair airflow. The most common cause is due to obesity, though there are non-obese patients with this disorder.

Presently, there are no studies that definitely link acetaminophen use with obstructive sleep apnea.
