Discussions that mention vicodin

Pain Management board


HeyMH, I think your confusing HydromorphContin, the Purdue Canada version of long acting hydromorphone "Dilauidid". I haven't come across any news about LA hydrocodone. I do know in Mexico, many people are mislead by street dealers into thinking regular oxycodone and even Vicodin is OxyContin and any other type of scam they can think of to increase the price. But I will keep an eye out for an LA hydrocodone product. Take care, Dave

Hey MH, JUst to be sure I was up to date I did som digging and the closest thing I found when searching for long acting Hydrocodne was a cold medecine that combined a decongestant and hydrocodne. I would imagine the decongestant puts a cap on the safe dose of this med you can take but it des mention not breaking or chewing the pill as not to interfere with it's time released mechanism. From what I can find, the Hydro wears off before the decongenstant and if you tamper with the long acting mechanism the decongestant doesn't last as long.

I do know folks tat have had LA hydro compounded using dextromathorphan and that last 6-8 hours and can be created in any dose you want, from 20 mgs of hydro to 100 mgs per capsule. The DXM just prolongs the action of the hydro and gives it NMDA blocing ability.

USES: Hydrocodone is a cough suppressant. Phenylpropanolamine relieves nasal stuffiness. This combination medication is used to treat a cough and symptoms associated with the common cold, allergies, hay fever, sinusitis and other respiratory illnesses.

HOW TO USE: Take this medication as prescribed. Be sure to follow instructions closely. Do not increase your dose or take this more often than directed. Capsules and long-acting tablets must be swallowed whole with a full glass of water. Do not crush or chew them. The long action will be destroyed and the chance of side effects will be increased.


Good luck, Dave
