Can you take Darvocet every 4 hours?

Yes, but your doctor is the one to ask. You can take it every 4 hours but that does not mean you can take six a day, the effect might build up. Pharmacists are also a good source for answers on medication. They often give more complete and understandable answers than the docs.

Steroids

Can you take oral steroids and Darvocet together?

Yes, but I wouldn't recommend doing large dosages of either nor would I take both for an extended period of time. Oral Steroids are methylated and so is Darvocet meaning both must be passed through the liver in order to be absorbed by your bloodstream. Large dosages of both can become hepatoxic and cause liver damage and possibly failure. The most ideal thing to do would be to cut out the steroids while coping with an injury (if this is why you are taking the pain killers) or switch to an non-methylated (injectable) steroid.

Are nightmares normal when detoxing from alcohol and Darvocet?

Yes, you certainly do go through nightmares and they are quite normal while detoxing from alcohol or certain medications.

Every 1/2 hour we all dream (most of the dreams we don't remember.) When coming off alcohol, medications and even quitting smoking our brains are getting a shot of oxygen like you wouldn't believe, plus the brain impulses have been use to whatever it is we were taking. Because a person with alcohol dependency or medicinal dependency just can't "ease off" to become well again this is a big shock for the brain. Thus, nightmares.

The person should not feel at their wits end because of the nightmares, but look on it as each day that goes by their brain is getting use to not having the alcohol or drug in their system and soon the body will feel whole again.

Studies have proven that vitamins and minerals often help with detoxing off alcohol and medications, so if you can, please see a Homeopathic doctor to lead you down the right path. It really does help.

Exercise is excellent to help those jangled nerves (perspiring helps to release the toxins in the body) and also drinking 8 - 10 glasses of water. Water helps keep the kidneys and other organs clear and flushes out toxins in the body as well. Believe it or not, within a week of drinking 8-10 glasses of water a day (no cheating) you can feel how much better your body is getting.

Stay away from tea, coffee, pop, chocolate (anything with caffein) because this will just add to the jitters. If you are a heavy tea or coffee drinker, cut down by 2 cups a day for a full 2 weeks, and another 2 cups after that. The absence of coffee or tea taken away so quickly can cause headaches.

Withdrawal from alcohol can cause a variety of symptoms, up to and including death. This doesn't happen often any more due to the use of medicines that can help a person through this process, but it is stressful to say the least. If you doubt that an alcoholic can die from withdrawal, look up delirium tremens. That's just one of the cool things that alcohol deprivation can cause. Nightmares can be caused by eating pizza late at night. The change in body chemistry precipitated by withdrawal from alcohol can be much more drastic. The media and Hollywood have made withdrawal from heroin a source of endless melodrama. In reality, that's much like a bad case of the flu. I have never heard of a heroin addict dying from simple withdrawal. Alcoholics can. I'd hazard a guess that such dreams were normal. If they persist long after withdrawal is complete, it might be a matter for concern, but otherwise I wouldn't lose any sleep over it. I don't even know what Darvocet is, but I'm betting it's not an aspirin substitute. Removal of alcohol from your system will make you aware of all manner of aches and pains and discomforts that you were previously unaware of in your medicated state. Give yourself a good year to approach normalcy again.

Are Darvocet and percocet the same drug?

No.

Darvocet is a Schedule IV narcotic, on the lowest class of opiate analgesics. While an opiate derivative, it's relatively weak when it comes to pain medication. Being a Schedule IV drug, you can get refills and a doctor can call it in. It is in the same class as Codeine.

Percocet is a Schedule II narcotic, a combination of Oxycodone and Tylenol. It is normally given only to patients with previous experience/tolerance to opiates at lower levels. The Schedule II narcotics cannot be refilled, nor can they be called in to a pharmacy - you must have an original prescription from your doctor for each fill.

Darvocet isn't even close in potency to Percocet, although some Pharmacists believe Darvocet to be more toxic.

Is Darvocet a narcotic?

Darvocet (Dextropropoxyphene also know as Propoxyphene) is a fully synthetic opioid analgesic (ie a narcotic). It is used to control mild pain and it is closely related to Demerol (Pethidine also known as meperidine). Darvocet is a mixture of Dextropropoxyphene and acetaminophen. Both drugs do reduce pain however the Dextropropoxyphene is the primary analgesic due to its opioid activity.

Darvocet has come under significant controversy because dextropropoxyphene is highly addictive and most countries only have medications containing both Dextropropoxyphene and acetaminophen. As a result there has been an alarmingly high incidence of death due to addicts taking so many pills that the acetaminophen becomes toxic and kills.

Dispite the high addictive potential of dextropropoxyphene, the US classifies it a a schedule IV drug along with Valium, Phenobarbital, and many others. Most opioid's are schedule II but codeine and hydrocodone drugs containing acetaminophen or an NSAID are schedule III.

What is Hydrocodone Bitartrate?

It's a pain killer and cough suppressant used in medications like Vicodin.

"Hydrocodone" is a "semi-synthetic" or partially man-made opiod analgesic (pain killer) and antitussive (cough suppressant) made from codeine and thebaine.

"Bitartrate" is a salt of tartaric acid. Tartaric acid is a muscle toxin but in medications that include Hydrocodone Bitartrate, it is used to alter the water-solubility of Hydrocodone to make it more readily absorbed b the body. Hydrocodone Bitartrate is the generic name/active ingredient (alongside acetaminophen) in Vicodin, Vicodin ES, Lortab, and Norco. It is a mild to moderate pain reliever and is a Schedule III drug in the United States. It is only available with a prescription from a doctor.

Will Darvocet be put back on the market?

Yes, I hope so. I would be willing to sign any form regarding heart issues to receive my Darvocet back. I too have tried multiple other pain meds, with no relief or was allergic to them. The Darvocet was not totally effective for pain, but was the best for my back and joint pain. I wonder why the FDA has not recalled Penicillin and some other drugs that cause severe problems, but they are still on the market.

Is vicodin and Darvocet in the same category when taking a urinedrug test Would they both show up as opiates or each individual drug. Many thanks.?

I have a permanent injury and have a darvocet prescription. Without thinking I took a dose of my wifes hydrocodone cough syrup for a recent cold. I asked the above question because i take random drug tests for work and I am worried that it will show up. I already have opiates in my system from the darvocet so I'm hoping it will just show up as an opiate. Are urine drug tests so specific that it will show each and every drug or just the category such as opiates? PLEASE HELP!!!!!!


Rest easy they both are opiates and will show up in a drug test as opiates drug test are not that specific they shoe thc,opiates,benzos ect... they show up as groups not as drug names your job is safe

>>>>>>>

Hey, not all drug tests are the same. some are more sensitive than others. The ones I had to take at a pain clinic detect the various different types of opiates. they can differentiate btwn percocet (oxycodone), vicodin (hydrocodone) TYlenol 3 (codeine) Darvoce (Propoxyphene) t, etc etc.
