What is the difference between hydrocodone and hydrocodein?
Is there a different?
Asked by Queen Overfelt 2 years ago.
Hydrocodeine exists, but is rarely prescribed. It is found in Synalgos-DC made by Winthrop. Hydrocodeine, or dihydrocodeine, is about twice as potent as codeine. It is unpopular because it has bioavailability (absorption) issues. Hyrodocodone is about 2/3 as potent as morphine, and codeine is about 1/12 as potent. Therefore, there is a 8 to 1 potency ratio between hydrocodone and codeine, and theoretically about a 4 to 1 ratio between dihydrocodeine and hydrocodone (see above re absorption problems) Source: I am a pharmacist Answered by Maryjane Laigle 2 years ago.
There is no such thing as hydrocodeine. The "hydro" prefix would not be appropriate for codeine. Even in noted medical pages, hydrocodeine is not the correct name, only dihydrocodein. This was a slang term given to a more potent codeine in attempt to sway people that it is as potent as hydrocodone. Answered by Stephine Soros 2 years ago.

There is such a thing as dihyrdocodeine, made by Winthrop as Synalgos-DC. It is a pet analgesic of the dental community, for reasons completely beyond me. It is virtually unprescribed in the medical community. I have a feeling, though, that you are not referring to such an exotic drug product. I think Jennifer had it right you were thinking of hydrocodone, which, TRUST ME, is no where near going out of business. Source: I am a pharmacist. Answered by Graig Mcclurken 2 years ago.
Hydrocodeine doesn't exist. Hydrocodone does and is available in generic form so it'll never "go out of business". Answered by Tiera Shoemaker 2 years ago.
What prescription pills contain opiates?
I am writing a paper on prescription narcotic abuse and need a list of all prescription pills that contain opiates. Vicadin, tramadol, ect. Thank you!
Asked by Calandra Trentinella 2 years ago.
The first answer is incorrect. It provides a Wikipedia link (and FYI Wikipedia should NEVER put down as once of your sources for any school paper) to a list of schedule II United States federally controlled substances, some of which are not opiates (and there is difference between opioids and opiates although typically the term opioids is both most appropriate and most often used). Also opioids come in formulations other than pills. You should also keep in mind that opioids, opiates, and controlled substances are not the same as narcotics. Under US law a narcotic is defined as either cocaine or any opioid. However drugs like amphetamines, barbiturates, benzodiazepines, and others are not legally classified as narcotics even though they are controlled substances. I will attach a link to a list of all the drugs in The US (both brand and generic names included) that are controlled substances in case it helps. Here is a list of opioids (opioids refer to naturally occurring opiates found in the opium poppy like morphine and codeine, they also refer to semisynthetic opioids that have been derived from naturally occurring opiate alkaloids like hydromorphone, oxycodone, and hydrocodone, opioids also refer to synthetic opioids which have no chemical relation to morphine and other natural opiates examples include methadone, meperidine (aka pethidine), and tramadol.

Since Darvocet has been pulled off of the market, what will doctors replace it with?
I was previously prescribed Darvocet for my back pain, but now that it has been pulled off of the market, I was wondering what my doctors might replace it with. I am also prescribed Ultram (Tramadol).
Asked by Shanna Robert 2 years ago.
Darvocet is indicated for the relief of mild to moderate pain and I don't think any other opioids have the same indication, for example Tylenol with Codeine is indicated for the relief of mild to moderately severe pain. I would imagine tramadol, codeine, and hydrocodone (perhaps even pentazocine to some extent) will become the preferred drugs. The other issues is that propoxyphene is a federally controlled schedule IV substance, the same as Valium (diazepam), Xanax (alprazolam), phenobarbital, and Adipex-P (phentermine). Most other opioids are at a higher level of control, due to a higher addictive potential, and from all the American doctors I have spoken with they prefer using schedule III or IV opioids when possible. Hydrocodone and codeine are both schedule III and tramadol is not a controlled substance. Even now hydrocodone is the most prescribed drug in The United States and codeine has fallen somewhat out of favour. There is also the possibility that many of the drugs with hydrocodone like Vicodin may be removed from the market, which a FDA committee did recommend due to the high levels of acetaminophen. There are a lot of opioids in the US so I am sure you and your doctor can find a something good List of opioids: Weak to intermediate opioids: Codeine (Tylenol #3, Tylenol #4, Panadeine, Panadeine Forte, Prontalgine Codeine Contin) Tramadol (Ultram, Ultram ER, Zydol, Tramacet, Contramal, Tramal, Tridural, Zytram XL) Pentazocine (Talacen, Talwin NX) Dihydrocodeine (Codhydrine, Panlor DC, Panlor SS, Synalgos-DC) Hydrocodone (Vicodin, Norco, Lortab, Lorcet, Vicoprofen, Ibudone, Zydone, Xodol, Maxidone) Full opioid agonists: Morphine (MS Contin, Avinza, Kadian, M-Eslon, MS-IR, MOS-SR, M.O.S., MXL Capsules, MST Continuous, Oramorph SR, Embeda) Oxycodone (OxyContin, Percocet, Oxy-IR, Supeudol, OxyNorm, Magnacet, Roxicet, Tylox, Combunox, Endocet) Oxymorphone (Opana) Hydromorphone (Dilaudid, Exalgo) Fentanyl (Duragesic, Actiq) Pethidine/meperidine (Demerol) Methadone (Dolophine) Levorphanol (Levo-Dromoran, Dromoran) Tapentadol (Nucynta) Answered by Portia Cotler 2 years ago.
Is Darvocet Off The Market Answered by Debbi Cabada 2 years ago.
my husband and i took hydrocodone for many years and did not get addicted, as we used it when laying down didn't help. i supply of 30 of them lasted me four months. but then i got allergic to codeine. my doctor switched me to darvocet a few months ago. now that it has been pulled off the market our doctor switched me to talwin. my husband can still take hydrocodone. does anyone know how talwin com,pares in pain relief to hydrocodone? by the way, i had been taking hydrocodone for so long that the darvocet worked better than it. Answered by Gonzalo Buckner 2 years ago.
Probably nothing. Tramadol is a NSAID pain reliever. Depending on your problem, they may just leave you with that. Darvocet is in the same class with Codeine (synthetic), so they might give you Vicoden. Many times when people come into the ER for back pain, they go home with Motrin & Vicoden, if they send them home with a Rx at all. Answered by Yvette Schmeiser 2 years ago.
Darvocet was pretty much worthless for pain relief anyway. It had a LOT of hidden dangers, including patient deaths, without much to recommend it for relieving pain. There are much better/safer/effective alternatives today, including Vicodin. Answered by Judy Barraclough 2 years ago.
It's no great loss. Propoxyphene isn't as strong as acetaminophen, anyway, and most people would have been better served by taking a couple of Tylenol along with a couple of Advil. There's still plenty of codeine and hydrocodone, et. al.. Answered by Karol Rahman 2 years ago.
Oxycodone or hydrocodone, most likely. There's no shortage of pain relievers. Yet. Answered by Chung Spadea 2 years ago.

Asked by Kathy Malama 2 years ago.
Two months ago I had lower back surgery and was prescribed generic Percocet 5/325. Ever since I had surgery I have been taking two pills every other day during the evening. Somtimes I'll wait a few days before taking them again. I have never taken more than two 5/325s in one day. I took a little three day break and yesterday began taking them once again. Now, when i first started taking them the effects were quite noticeable: aside from the pain relief, there was a very noticeable warm sensation in my body, my head felt very light and I experienced euphoria. These symptoms were very plesant and relaxing and as much as I hate to admit it, I always enjoy this extra plesant benefit everytime I take the percocet. When I took them again yesterday after taking three days off, the pain was gone but I no longer felt the light headedness or warm sensation that I always experienced. Today, I took two more once again and again, no lightheadedness, warmth, or euphoria. I don't know whats going on. Do you think I have developed a tolerance and now need more percocet to experience these pleasant sensations? Is there any way to combat this, like say not taking the percocet for at least a week?

If you don't have a legitimate answer to my question, then maybe you shouldn't answer it in the first place. In that sense, you can respectfully go f* yourself. Answered by Kristel Rattay 2 years ago.
Are you still taking it because you still have intermittent pain (that is severe enough to require opioids) or for recreational use alone? Like any opioid selective tolerance to the effects of oxycodone (the opioid in Percocet) will occur. Basically that means that the body will develop tolerance to some effects of the drug but not others and that tolerance to some effects comes more quickly than others. Typically the first effects that people become tolerant to are the euphoric effects, lightheadedness, sedation, and nausea . So yes you are tolerant to some of the effects of 10 mg of oxycodone. The next major thing you will develop tolerance to is the analgesia so it won't even be able to provide pain relief. It is hard to say when that will occur. You have a few options: 1) If you do have legitimate pain (either constant or intermittent) then you need to talk with your doctor about controlling it and often acetaminophen (Tylenol, which is also in Percocet), NSAID's (ibuprofen, ketoprofen, Aspirin), or weak opioids (examples below) may be sufficient. Continuing to take Percocet may be appropriate but only for pain. It is very important for pain to be controlled and fear of addiction is NOT a reason for opioids to not be used when they are indicated. 2) If you do NOT have pain then you need to stop taking Percocet. Percocet is for pain, using it just for euphoric effects is not a proper reason to take it (it is also technically illegal, even if you have a prescription). 3) You can decide to start escalating the Percocet dose so you do get euphoric and put yourself in significant risk. If I were you I would pick option 1 or 2. Examples of weak/intermediate opioids: codeine (Tylenol #3, Tylenol #4) dihydrocodeine (Panlor DC Panlor SS, Synalgos-DC) hydrocodone (Vicodin, Norco, Lortab, Lorcet) tramadol (Ultram, Ultram ER, Ultracet, Zydol, Ryzolt, Rybix ODT, Zytram XL) It is not a crime, nor is it really a bad thing, to experience euphoria when taking opioids. Part of the difference between an addict and a non-addict is that the person without an addiction will stop a medication when it is no longer needed. An addict (not that I am saying you are an addict) will keep using the drugs even with the medical use gone. Answered by Sena Boldon 2 years ago.
You have drifted away from a legitimate medical question, and have flopped over into a druggie asking a drug addict's question about how to take drugs to get high. If your pain is under good control, then there is no reason to take Percocet. While it is a wonderful pain killer, it is also very addictive when taken recreationally. And that's what you're asking about here. You need to stop taking Percocet longer than a week. You need to stop taking it, period. Edit: Gee, I thought you were in the medicine board seeking medical advice, not drug addict advice. Your hostility proves my original assumption was correct. You're a druggie. As for f'ing myself, I have a particularly attractive girlfriend who takes care of that for me quite nicely, but thanks for your advice in your area of expertise.
