Vicodine Hydrocodone Acetaminophen 5 300

Price : $288.00 / Pack

Vicodin is the brand name that contains a combination of hydrocodone (5mg) and acetaminophen (300 mg). Hydrocodone blocks the receptors on nerve cells in the brain that give rise to the sensation of pain. Acetaminophen is a non-narcotic analgesic (pain reliever) and antipyretic (fever reducer). Acetaminophen works by elevating the threshold to pain, that is, for the pain to be felt, greater stimulation of the nerves responsible for the sensation of pain is necessary. These drugs work in the brain to block pain signals. They decrease the ability to feel pain. It has been advised to use the lowest effective dosage for the shortest duration consistent with individual patient treatment goals.

Vicodin may become habit-forming. In other words, these drugs can cause physical or mental dependence. For this reason, doctors are cautious when prescribing them.

This combination medication is used to relieve moderate to severe pain. It contains an opioid pain reliever (hydrocodone) and a non-opioid pain reliever (acetaminophen). Hydrocodone works in the brain to change how the body feels and responds to pain. Acetaminophen can also reduce fever.
Patients receiving other narcotics, antihistamines, antipsychotics, antianxiety agents, or other CNS depressants (including alcohol) concomitantly may exhibit an additive CNS depression. When combined therapy is contemplated, the dose of one or both agents should be reduced. The use of MAO inhibitors or tricyclic antidepressants with hydrocodone preparations may increase the effect of either the antidepressant or hydrocodone.
