I am prescribed 7.7/750 vicodin for pain. i got moved to 10/325. I went in to see my doctor early because the new strength to me is not helping. So he put me on 10/650.
30 days that I filled the 10/325 but I am not using them cause they don't help. So can I actually fill the 10/650 and use those instead of the 10/325?
Most insurances will fill another prescription if the strenghth is different without a problem hope these help, marjorie zych
The only difference in the prescription that I can tell is the amount of acetaminophen in each pill. The 10 represents the amount of hydrocodone in each, and the 325 or 650 is the amount of acetaminophen (Tylenol),each in milligrams, in each tablet. You can use the 10/325 tablets, just add 1 regular strength Tylenol (325 mg) to each tablet. Did your doctor increase the amount per day that you could take, or change the time to wait in-between each dose? You can use the 10/325 tablet with the new dosing schedule (if he did change it) and Once that prescription runs out, the next one should be able to be filled because the doctor has made a change. Hope this helps.
Take it to the phamacy & see if it goes through. I just had to do this because my pain doc was switching me from Methadone to Embeda. I took 1 pill had a horrible allergic reaction. So she put me back on Methadon the very next day with a new prescribtion. I was wondering if it would go thru also, so my pharmatist ran it real quick to see, & it did go thru. I have really good insurance tho' May be different with other companies, but usually if you have a valid prescription it will go thru. I am concerned tho' that what he increased this last time was to double the Tylenol. You're still only getting 10mg of Hydrocodone. I am surprised he didn't have you just take another 1/2 pill of the former script. 650 for one pill is a lot of tylenol, so be careful how many you take or if you take Tylenol in any other form. Like Tylenol PM or Excedrin or just Tylenol. Good luck to you & hope your pain gets better.
