1-hydrocodone/acetaminophen – oral, Lortab, Norco, Vicodin


USES: This combination medication is used to relieve moderate to severe pain. It contains a narcotic pain reliever (hydrocodone) and a non-narcotic pain reliever (acetaminophen). Hydrocodone works in the brain to change how your body feels and responds to pain. Acetaminophen can also reduce a fever.

Knocks pain down 80%, but does not take it away all together. Notice decrease in my back pain within 30 minutes of taking. To me that is worth it. Does not last the 6 hours doc said it should last, last more like 4 hours. Overall I recommend this drug for lower back pain.

I was diagnosed with fybromyalgia by my chiropractor. I went to my M.D.with the diagnosis. It had gotten to the point that I was barely able to make it through the work day!He at first tried me on anti-depressants, no relief. Then hesitantly prescribed hydrocone, all the time warning me of it’s dependancy. I can now work without many of the problems I had before ,I can play with my grandchildren, something I was not able to do before taking this. It has helped me immensely!! So what if it has dependancy tendencies!! If it works and doesn’t cost a fortune , let your patients remain on the drug until they come up with a miracle cure for this ailment!! Thank God I can now be an almost normal 54 year old gramma!!! Sue from Iowa

As with all medications, we must ask ourselves, does the benefits of taking a medication outweigh the risks. Chronic pain affects our daily living. Yes, our systems may become dependent on this medication as it is a narcotic; but if taken strictly as directed, it can improve our quality of living and every day life. If a condition improves, and pain no longer presents a significant problem, then weaning off this pain medication rather than abruptly stopping, should decrease withdrawal symptoms. I for one am glad that I am prescribed this medication because it helps make my pain bearable, and that makes each day a little brighter.

First of all…..God Bless Everyone who is reading this and is in severe CHRONIC PAIN! I have been, myself, for 6 years now and believe me…..it is HELL!!! No one realizes how HORRENDOUS the back pain is until you have it yourself! It is very easy for some to say…well…it is SO “addictive” and “stay away from it”….sure….if you don’t want to have any sort of a life at all!! It’s not that you want to go out and dance or go to a party….far from it!! It’s just being able to get through each and every day..period..without getting ready to scream from the PAIN!!! Especially if it cannot be operated on!! For anyone that is having “ITCHING” problems…..YOU ARE “ALLERGIC” TO THE CODEINE IN THE PILLS!! YOU SHOULD NOT BE CONTINUING THEM!! If the hydrocodone does NOT help certain people because their pain is SO SEVERE and LEGITIMATE, then you should speak to your Doctor about switching to OXYCODONE-5/325 or 10/325 a few times per day!! No one….I don’t care WHO they are, should have to live(?) in severe/horrendous pain AT ALL!! Especially in this, the 21st century!! Life is difficult enough…don’t you think?? For anyone taking them for “cramps” for menstral periods….WHAT?? I NEVER was given a “NARCOTIC” in my life for that, and believe me, I used to have terrible pain with my periods!! Get off of them!! For your teeth….just use them for that, and for that short amount of time. YES…..they CAN affect your liver function tests!! I believe that the Oxycodone that I am on has done that, slightly, for the past five years, because of the TYLENOL in them!!! However….right now, unless it ever started to become worse, I literally NEED to have them….not “EMOTIONALLY” but “PHYSICALLY” for my pain!! I am tired of people and doctors looking “down” on others who actually NEED that type of medication! If it gets to the point where it seems not to be enough…..speak to your DOCTOR!! ADDICTION…YES! But….how do you go day to day in terrible pain?

I have cronic back pain due to an injury. I had surgery in March of 2003 to try to repair the damage, but it was not successful. So I have was prescibed Hydrocodone/APAP, and if not for this medication, I would no longer be able to work or have a normal life. (I also take Neurontin for nerve pain and Ultram for inflamation.) But due to those people who abuse such medications, it is hard to find a doctor who will prescibe it. I have been on Hydrocodone/APAP since 2003, I take it as directed and only as directed. I understand that the laws governing this medication are very strict, but I believe if you have cronic pain above a level 5 with proof of condition, you should be able to recieve this medication without the doctor treating you like your a drug abuser! Believe me, I have tried all the alternatives, Physical Therapy, exersize, and many other things, but the Hydrocodone/APAP and the other meds in combination with that are the only thing that has been able to keep me working and living a full and happy life. I have grandchildren I love to pick up and love, and I can only do that because of my medication.

I had a twofold knee substitution done and was taking oxycodone for the agony. Following a couple of week I develop a resistance for it and it wouldn’t work any longer, yet I was still in alot of pain. Then my Pharmaceutical the uscamx.com has suggested me to hydrocodone, and I’ve been doing extraordinary with it. It’s similarly as viable as the oxycodone, and I have not encountered any symptoms. Furthermore, my torment is considerably more middle of the road again now.

use for widespread osteoarthritis

Less than 1 month for knee surgery. Only required 1/2 of prescription. Very satisfied.

Overtime side effects lessen but the pain is controlled.

GENERIC NAME(S): Pregabalin


This medication is used to treat pain caused by nerve damage due to diabetes, shingles (herpes zoster) infection, or spinal cord injury. This medication is also used to treat pain in people with fibromyalgia.

It is also used with other medications to treat certain types of seizures (focal seizures).

How to use Lyrica

Read the Medication Guide and, if available, the Patient Information Leaflet provided by your pharmacist before you start using pregabalin and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions regarding the information, consult your doctor or pharmacist.

Take this medication by mouth as directed by your doctor, usually 2 to 3 times a day with or without food. Dosage is based on your medical condition, kidney function, and response to treatment.

If you are using the liquid form of this medication, carefully measure the dose using a special measuring device/spoon. Do not use a household spoon because you may not get the correct dose.

To reduce your risk of side effects (such as dizziness and drowsiness), your doctor may direct you to start this medication at a low dose and gradually increase your dose. Follow your doctor’s instructions carefully.

Use this medication regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same times each day. This drug works best when the amount of medicine in your body is kept at a constant level. Therefore it is best to take pregabalin at evenly spaced intervals throughout the day and night.

Do not stop taking this medication without consulting your doctor. Some conditions (such as seizures) may become worse when this drug is suddenly stopped. Also, you may experience symptoms such as difficulty sleeping, nausea, headache and diarrhea. To prevent these symptoms while you are stopping treatment with this drug, your doctor may reduce your dose gradually. Report any new or worsening symptoms right away.

Though it helps many people, this medication may sometimes cause addiction. This risk may be higher if you have a substance use disorder (such as overuse of or addiction to drugs/alcohol). Take this medication exactly as prescribed to lower the risk of addiction. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for more details.

Tell your doctor if your condition persists or worsens.

I have been taking 150 mg 2 times day this for 6 or 8 months. PRO: It helps with the leg pain I have from diabetic neuropathy. CON: I have gained nearly 30 lbs since taking this medicine. And this medicine is expensive even with a great insurance plan.

Taking this drug, I was unable to focus. My pain didn’t get better, but I did have issues with suicidal thoughts and horrible nightmares. I became very irritable and unstable. This was not a good medication for me.

works well when on medication once a night for 14 days. Two months later the pain is back. will be taking it for another 14 days to see how.

Lyrica helps with nerve pain that I have in my feet and legs but recently I have been getting edema in my feet I can barely get my sneaks on. For those of you that complain about the price got to the drug makers website and download their coupon that is good for a year and you will pay 25.00 a month and not 600.00 it is available to anyone regardless of income. I am surprised your medical provider hasn’t told you about it.

I’ve been taking Lyrica for about 8 yrs. now and I would not be able to do the things I do without it. The only side effects I have are a little weight gain in the beginning, but I got a handle on that. I had a little blurred vision, but that resolved with time. I may have had dizziness, but who knows. I take a few other meds as part of a pain/spasm management. I’ve taken other meds like neurontin and those just about killed me. Lyrica has the least side effects of all of those kind of drugs out there. Due to insurance, I’ve tried them all.

I have been put on courses of Lyrica several times in the last few years. Wonderfully effective, good pain relief. No side effects other than a little drowsy and no withdrawal problems when stopping. This is the best drug I have had.

The third day on very low dose of Lyrica I went into a drug store to pick up a couple items. I started feeling extremely strange. I looked left, then right and the last thought I had was “I need to tell someone”. I awoke in the hospital and didn’t remember anything. I went back and got my medical records. I had taken my clothes off in CVS, was talking crazy and paramedics were called. Evidently I became very violent and ended up with two black eyes with cuts and scrapes. Like I said I don’t remember thank God. I never took it again and this has never happened again. Medical staff think it caused a seizure.

I have Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue syndrome as well as other conditions. After a week, I began to GAIN WEIGHT, lots of weight, the gain was eventually about a pound a day, as the weight gain continues for a time after you stop. IF YOU HAVE TROUBLE WITH WEIGH, DO NOT TAKE THIS DRUG!! the drug ads usually do not tell you that this is the most devastating symptom. Combining this with Prednisone or any other CORTISONE, oral, injected, nasal or even for a rash caused me to gain 100 lbs. on a 1200 calorie diet with light exercise.

If I miss taking lyrica (150) at night, my pain becomes unbearable. I don’t know if it’s withdrawal or my fibromyalgia is that bad.

Have Fibromyalgia. So disappointed. Took pain away. After 3rd day of taking it hadvto stop. Extreme dizziness and severe blurred vision to the point of vomiting continually. Wanted pain relief but not at this cost. Expensive as well. Just threw away money. Disappointed…

Terrible twitches/jerks on generalized body thru out day . I feel like I am in a daze and very difficult to focus. I am only taking 100mg BID. I too weaned myself off of Lyrica over 2 weeks and developed 3 weeks of never ending headaches. Relief wasn’t until I restarted Lyrica 50mg.

I have Fibromyalgia, been taking Opioids for years. I have major depressive disorder, OCD and panic disorder. I took my first dose of Lyrica, 50mg, last night. I’m dizzy (took motion sickness pill) and nauzious. I not sure of pain relief because I feel wierd. Starting to have leg cramps. I’m not sure about this drug after reading all the comments. I do feel a little foggy and lazy. Wish me luck, I have hurt for so many years I just want relief.

3 weeks @ 200mg. a day. NO pain relief what so ever! arthritis. Had to pay for it myself, no help from insurance. Dizzy the first and second day. Too many side effects, and no pain relief. Thanks for letting me say something about this stuff.


I have spinal stenosis and all of a sudden, my nerves were on fire. After a month of different pain meds, my doctor prescribed Lyrica and Percocet and I’m sleeping through the night for the first time in a month. Am going to see orthopedic doctors soon to see if something can be done with nerve/back pain, but Lyrica is like a miracle drug.
