Has anyone else had this same problem with this medication?
The dose of Zohydro ER 20mg is generally a starting dose.
Even though you're taking the extended release the duration of Zohydro pill is only 8 to 10 hours.
Might you ask your doctor if you could take more than one pill a day?
I take ZoHydro 40mg every 12 hrs plus I still take Norco 10/325, 2 pills 3 to 4 times a day.
I would ask your doctor to up the ZoHydro mg to the next mg until you get relief. Also, you can take it every 12 hrs.
Hope this helps.
Zohydro is hydrocodone, not as potent as oxycodone.
In pain management extended release narcotics are used as a base pain reliever. Oxycodone and hydrocodone come as extended release or regular release.
Pain management protocol is an extended release medication used as well as regular release for breakthrough pain.
For instance, I am on 15mg morphine ER every 8 hours, and oxycodone 10mg every 6 hours as needed for breakthrough pain. It works great this way.
