  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Advice & Tips: I have now switched to having my pharmacist compound hydrocodone without any tylenol in it.  My doctor was hesitant to prescribe this for me because my kidney function has deteriorated recently, and to my surprise he did not know the pharmacy could compound it.  I knew because I have a dog, and they cannot have the tylenol (at least, it doesn't help them any, and it makes cats very sick).  So, if you are interred, you must first find a compounding pharmacist  (mail order is an option, and you may have to educate your MD.

  • Effectiveness

  • Side effects

  • Adherence

  • 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...

  • Adherence

  • 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.
