    Are there any other names that would consist of Vicodin?


    What is codein compared to vicodin?


    Thanks

    vicodin ... is the name brand for the most common Hydrocodone/APAP pills. generic is usually watson hydrocodone


    there's also norco and loratab right off hand ... there's a couple others too, but can't think of them right now. (am on 80mg of oxycontin and 10mg of hydrocodone right now)

    Other brands of Hydrocodone/Apap lorcet,co-gesic,polygesic,anexia and zydone.


    Hydrocodone is significantly stronger and therefore more habit forming than codeine , oxycodone is stronger than hydrocodone . If you do find yourself taking handfulls of hydrocodone be aware of the damage that the acetominorphine can do to you.

    if you chose to take a lot of hydrocodone (vicodin) make sure you take Norco's or something similar. a norco has 10mg of hydrocodone and only 325mg of acetominophin. so it's about twice the good stuff and almost half of the bad stuff vicodins have.

    if you are taking 5/500 to 7.5/750 vicodins (hydrocodones) the bigger number is the ammount ot acetominiphin. you don't want to take more than 1000mg of acetominiphin per 100lbs of your body weight. and for anybody 4000mg of acetominiphin can be fatal.
