Hydrocodone And Naproxen

Hydrocodone And Naproxen

Descriptions

Hydrocodone and ibuprofen combination is used to relieve acute pain. This medicine should only be used for short periods of time, usually for a total of less than 10 days. This combination is not used for osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis.

Hydrocodone is a narcotic analgesic that acts on the central nervous system to relieve pain. If hydrocodone is used for a long time, it may become habit-forming (causing mental or physical dependence). Physical dependence may lead to withdrawal side effects when you stop taking the medicine. Since hydrocodone and ibuprofen combination is only used for short-term (10 days or less) relief of pain, physical dependence will probably not occur.

Is hydrocodone better than over the counter pain meds?

In many studies done on specific types of pain: acute or chronic, musculoskeletal or postoperative among others, non-opioid medications were just as good if not better.You see, the classic line taught in medical school is that NSAIDS/ non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs work just as well for pain but hydrocodone makes you care less about the pain. That’s because you will be much more dopey on hydrocodone—oh, and more constipated.

When should you use hydrocodone?

Opioids are recommended only for severe pain (a score of at least 7 out of 10), as in a post-surgical setting or other situations in which NSAIDs or other treatments provide inadequate pain relief.

Why is liberal use of hydrocodone a bad idea?

Opioids are associated with serious side effects, including respiratory depression, motor and cognitive impairment, sedation, and the development of tolerance. Long-term use of opioids can also result in the development of an increased sensitivity to pain, known as opioid-induced hyperalgesia.

Why are we using more hydrocodone in the U.S.?

No reason. There should be widespread concern that the use of opioids is increasing at an unwarranted and possibly hazardous rate. With the increased use of opioids, there has been an increase in opioid-related overdoses and deaths.CDC data on poisoning deaths indicate that the number of deaths related to opioid use increased nearly 4-fold from 4030 in 1999 to 14,800 in 2008. In 2008, the number of overdose deaths involving the use of opioid pain relievers exceeded the number of deaths caused by heroin and cocaine combined.

What happens if I miss a dose?

Since this medicine is used for pain, you are not likely to miss a dose. Skip any missed dose if it is almost time for your next scheduled dose. Do not use extra medicine to make up the missed dose.
