Is hydrocodone-acetaminophen safe to take?

Yes. I just printed information from WWW.WWWW.WW concerning acetaminophen prescription combination drug products with more then 325 mg. recommendation to discontinue prescription dispensing. I am taking hydrocodone-acetaminophen. Should I take this information to my doctor on my next visit in Feb. 2014?

Hi,

They are high alert medicines which can damage the liver and cause death. They should be taken under doctor supervision and in the doses prescribed.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi, my name is Megan. I am 25 years old. I am on my 2nd pregnancy. My first one was lost at about 6 weeks due to miscariage. This time, I am not sure yet, but my last period started January 24th. We have been trying for about three years (on and off). I have endometriosis and have very intense and extreme pain. I was perscribed hydrocodone/actemetaphine awhile back before the pregnancies for the pain (which I am still having). Is it safe to still take these? I have a doctor s appointment coming up to confirm the pregnancy, but I want to know if I should stop taking them now?

I am taking Hydrocodone 7.5 mg & acetaminophen 325 mg 48 hours post surgical extraction of impacted wisdom tooth (#32) as well as tooth #31. Have taken 1/2 of pill, as directed, with little relief. Was instructed to take 1 full pill if not enough relief, but am wondering if I can take a 400 mg tablet of ibuprofen (prescribed to my 14-year old son for orthodontic relief, which he no longer needs). I suffer from rheumatoid arthritis and get excellent relief from naproxen sodium, however have not been taking often as I have learned there is moderate interaction with my blood pressure med (lisinopril-hctz 20-12.5 M). Perhaps it is best I just take a full pill of the hydrocodone/acetaminophen as prescribed? TYIA.

Thank you for your time. I am taking 120 mg of methadone (4 doses of 30 mg per day) for a combination tearing both sides rear rotor cuff ligaments in both shoulders through medium to high above the head bench presses combined with a collapsed right lung pneumonia operation requiring surgery to remove co-agulated pus which could not be suctioned out. The recovery was twenty five days from an excellent surgery with surgeon useing hands to remove pus. Surgeon s superior required that I take IV morphine for 14 days in hosital an an onknown amount of morphine tablets for ten days upon relief. At the age of 50, I began to like the feeling derived from taking morphine, realized problem after one 10 day refill and went to the hospital s pain specialist who put me on 60mg methadone. When condition of shoulders determined by MRI, and shoulder pain severe, different MD doubled methadone. Now 1 year later, I have had appendicitis and see it as opportunity to get off methadone to a drug from which can be withdrawn. Am trying fentanyl patches in 50 microgram patches on or two each 3 days. I am now in mid fifties and want to move to a drug that can be reduced until DC ed as I hope to go back to the University of Leiden at the Hague or Cambridge in England, to finish LLM in Public International Law. Any advise wou be appreciated as most advice is unrealistic and/or useless. Thank you again
