  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for Pain)
  • Side Effects
    Mild (Muscle fatigue)
  • Adherence
    Usually
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 1.5 x 325 mg-10 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I have been taking hydrocodone under many names over the years. Some of the names were Vicodin, Lortab, and Norco. They all seemed to work the same which was not that good. I just started taking the 10/325 yesterday so I will have to see how well a higher dosage pill helps me. I really hope I see an improvement in my pain levels with this new dose. My dosages have been up and down as my PCP was really mad at me for quitting Lyrica. I was hallucinating and could fall asleep right in the middle of a sentence while I was talking. I totaled 2 cars and was lucky that I didn't kill some innocent victim! Both accidents happened while I was hallucinating. It was plain awful taking the Lyrica but my PCP didn't understand and cut my hydrocodone down to the bare bones. I just went 3 years without a dosage increase as she had told me to never ask again but I couldn't help finally breaking down and asking. I asked for 2 x 7.5 per day and she said, "No" but then the very next month she wrote it for the same amount that I had asked for by writing me 45 x 10mg per month. That is still 15 mg a day. Bless her heart for helping me out!!! I hate it when I don't have a life because of pain...

  • Effectiveness
    Major (for Pain)
  • Side Effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 5 x 325 mg-10 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I take the 10/325 dosage. I would rather just take the "10" without taking any Tylenol as this really is not necessary. The Hydrocodone is the pain killer that I need for MS pain. I would NOT be able to go to work full-time still without this. I wen't through five (5) years of agony before my doctors would give me anything and missed a LOT of days of work.

  • Effectiveness
    None (for Depressed mood)
  • Side Effects
    Moderate (Tension Headache)
  • Adherence
    Sometimes
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: I don't know how this treatment got put under the "depression" treatment category. I can't delete that although I would like to. I ONLY use it sparingly for Fibromyalgia and I find even a small dosage causes a headache which rather defeats the purpose. Not as useful as it was before.

  • Side Effects

  • Adherence

    Somewhat hard to take
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: This one caused cluster headaches and rebound headaches. Be sure to let your doctor know if you are having trouble. I knew it was going to cause this issue but the doctor insisted I try it her way. I had to balance if I wanted to deal with the headaches and ease the back pain or to suffer the back pain to prevent the headaches. Sucked either way I did it.
Cost: $25-49 monthly

  • Side Effects
    Moderate (Cluster headaches, Rebound headaches)
  • Adherence
    Usually
  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: Since I have started taking this medication again I have started getting the rebound headaches back plus now I can have a continuous headache for up to 4-5 days. I now have to decide on weather I want relief from my back pain and being able to be up and do thing to taking the risk of getting these headaches which in turn can keep me in bed fighting off a possible migraine. Switching the relief of one pain to a maybe that I will have a different one to contend with and decide which one is the worse one to deal with and keep me from trying to live as normal a life as I can. I also have to pay over twice the amount for the pain medication as I did for the oxycodone. With out any income this is a greater burden on me to come up with the money. I am disabled and can't work and have no income.
