Discussions that mention vicodin

Pain Management board


Hi everyone !! Hope everyone is in a little less pain this morning....I was just glancing at the boards and I always seem to find something that I can relate to. I have learned so many things from here and have also been through so much I sometimes can add something for someone else. After reading this post I must add (correct) something.

"I can tell you that vicodin comes in 3 stregths - 5/500, 7.5/500 and 10/500 - the top number is the amount of hydrocodone in the pills and the bottom number is the amount of tylenol in the pills. "

I take vicodin on a daily basis and my strength is 10/650, so this might have been a typing 'oop' but I just wanted point this out.

I take 10/650 's every 4 hours and never ever miss a dose. My pain in still there but without vicodin I would be afraid to see my pain level. I also take 375 mg. of lyrica a day. At first I thought it really really helped but now I am not sure. It's so hard because the only way to see if you are really benefitting from a med would be to stop it and see if it really really was helping and I don't think many of us would be willing to suffer through that if our pain levels shot even higher. If only there was a magic med that made us all well again and painfree (even just for one day)...it's nice to dream sometime.... take -care , :angel:

[FONT="Comic Sans MS"][COLOR="Purple"]Hello Queenneeee,

Yes, you are correct. As I'm sure you know, hydrocodone medication is made by many different manufacturers. I intended to post that Lortab comes in 10/500 strength. Thanks for pointing my mistake out. I appreciate it.

Take care,
