Forget APAP and IBU, I mean the hydro itself. Some brands make me sleepy (qualitest) and some wake me up (watson). Are there additives to make you not feel as good in some?
Are there different "types" of hydrocodone?
Added 12 May 2010:
The reason I ask is I've been prescribed a number of different hydro variations over the last year. Watson 10/325 apap's work great and they give me a "lift", a little bit of needed energy. Qualitest 10/325 apap do not work well at all, do not give me the "lift" and in fact make me sleepy. Hawthorn 10/200 IBU work great on the pain, but make me very, very sleepy. Compounded 10/75 apap didn't work well, ran by blood pressure up and had me grinding my teeth.
Why would hydro not be hydro? Should not they all affect me the same?
You are not the only person that feels this way about the generic the distributors for the generic are mallincrk I believe that is how it's spelled. Anyway they have had many complaints so I would quit using the generic version of hydro all together. I know that the watson are a bit more expensive but it is well worth it than taking a pain medication that is suppose to take the pain away but instead make's you feel worse.
