  • 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.
Cost: $25-49 monthly

  • Effectiveness
    Major (for breakthrough pain)

  • Effectiveness
    Major (for Pain)
  • Side effects
    Moderate (elevated liver enzymes)
  • Adherence

  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Advice & Tips: My liver enzymes soared, most likely due to a reaction to Cefdinir (an antibiotic) so on the advice of my doctor, I eliminated as much meds that contain Tylenol as possible. We switched from Hydrocodone to Oxycodone for that reason. I think it was in January 2013, but I'm not 100% sure of the date.
