    hydrocodone without acetaminophen

    My pain doc just prescribed Zohydro ER. It's a 20mg time released hydrocodone pill with no acetaminophen, similar to oxycontin I guess. I haven't had it filled yet but should have it next week. It is new but everyone should be able to have their doc prescribe it.

    Re: hydrocodone without acetaminophen

    Hello Jiva...Welcome to HB. Yes, I've heard of Zohydro, but that it's extremely expensive for those who don't have prescription coverage through their health plan (like me). I'm having such a hard time just trying to navigate pain management costs with "old school" meds. I'll never be able to afford the Zohydro, though I know it will be a wonder drug for chronic pain patients who do have coverage. Good luck=)

    Hi jivacite, Thank you for sharing & welcome to healthboards! I would be very interested to hear how the Zohydro works for you & how it compares or how it is different from the short acting hydrocodone, i.e.how long does one dose last, how is the pain relief, etc. You are prescribed the short acting hydrocodone/apap now, yes? I hope it works so great to relief your pain! Where is the source of your pain? Thanks & i would really appreciate your updates!

    I <heard of a> the drug Zohydro. I fully believe that those of us that deal with chronic pain should have pain medications made available to us so we can hopefully find something that works well for us. But we also need to remember how careful we all need to be, too. I am a chronic pain person, too, & take oxycontin & oxydone daily for my pain.

    Hope everyone can find one thing to make them smile today
