I was just told by my Pharmacy that manufacturers are no longer going to be making the pain medication Hydrocodone 10. My Mother is on

this medication, and I have been having a VERY hard time having her prescriptions filled here, because almost all pharmacies are out of it. What is another effective pain medication for her? Thanks

She should ask her doctor ... or ask the pharmacist what an alternative is.

Thanks I did. They told me that Norco 10 was the same thing with less tylenol in it.

I was just wondering if anybody else was taking something for pain that was effective. I don't like her taking something that I have not heard of, or heard how well it works.

A doctor or pharmacist can help her find something else to manage her pain. I can't take that because I'm allergic to it. My dr gave me tramadol instead. It works well in managing my pain. Good luck!

That is such a strong medication you really need to ask her doctor. The biggest reason pharmacies don't have it is they stop keeping it on hand as it is one of the most sought after drugs by thugs who rob pharmacies. I found that out when I too was trying to get a prescription for my mom. Good luck!

I know! You can't get what you need because of the thoughtlessness and greed of others! I hope she gets well soon!

actually hydrocodone isn't much stronger than a tylenol 3. tylenol/codeine. isn't as strong as a percocet. (oxycodone). I've seen refills on hydtocodone which u don't get with narcotics without going in for a visit to get the paper prescription itself
