Hysingla ER (hydrocodone): "I've been taking 4 Hydrocodone 10-325 for years and still hurt no matter what, have to count pills so can't take 5 or 6 a day. Now they put me on Hysingla ER 30mg. 1 pill a day but still hurt 24-7 and can't get any more help."

Zohydro ER (hydrocodone): "I just started this I was given 30mg of Zohydro twice a day and taken off 60mg of hysingla once a day and I take 30 mg oxycodone for breakthrough pain not quite sure if this Zohydro will work for me I hope it does. Maybe I need a higher dose."

Hysingla ER (hydrocodone): "Dr started me on Hydrocodone 20 and after being on norco 7.5 for almost a year, the hyd 20 is a blessing. I take 1 tablet in the morning and my pain is manageable all day @ 2-3 level. While on norco 7.5 mg I suffered from 7-9 daily! Physical therapy sessions are more productive as well as gym workouts and gardening activities. I haven't experienced any unpleasant side effects."

Hysingla ER (hydrocodone): "I have had a bad total knee replacement and two rotator cuff surgeries that need to be redone, which puts me in basically constant pain. Pain dr has me on 10/325 Norco and as well as hysingla to take at night because it will apparently help me sleep as Norco doesn’t let me sleep. Well Neither does Hysingla, I just lay there and never fall into deep sleep plus it does nothing for pain. The only pain reliever that works for me is Norco. Any suggestions for pain at night with sleep?"

Hysingla ER (hydrocodone): "I have been taking Hysingla ER for almost one year now. Doctor started me on 20mg and today I am taking 100mg. No side effects for me. I rarely take Vicodin for breakthrough pain now that I seem steady at this dose. It took a while to get me to the right dose. I think it is critical for your pain doctor not to reduce or stop all pain meds when you are on the low doses. It should be done when you get to the dose that works. My doctor was great working with me to get me to the right dose without making me suffer."

Zohydro ER (hydrocodone): "I never received much relief from Hydrocodone. Then along came Zohydro - was quite skeptical at first due to the fact I had quite a high tolerance to oxy, but have actually been quite pleased. It's for sure a few steps down from the oxy I was on but, as has already been mentioned, it's not a roller coaster ride you get with a lot of other pain meds. Only sides thus far have been dehydration, fatigue, and very vivid dreams - I wake up really freaked out by how real they seem at times? At first I thought it was due to other things I was taking but have since ruled them out, so it's definitely the Zohydro. Now I wait until I am totally awake before I take my first dose. I do believe that 12 hours of relief is a bit of a stretch and that 9 hours is closer to the length of relief it provides and I'm on the 50's. Do highly recommend."

Hysingla ER (hydrocodone): "Great for Pain Management. I had 28 Yrs on Opioids after 12 Surgeries. Total disagreement with Florida wanting to regulate it to 3-7 Day Supply when Florida allowed "Pill Mills" to operate for years. Lost kin to Florida looking the other way, now want Lawsuits against Manufacturers? Absurd thinking, China is killing people by Shipping Opioids via USPS, Buyers unaware of the potency of drugs such as Fentenyl, Oxy etc and Florida Rehabs are milking my Tax Dollars with Commercials showing Resort Living Rehabs. Ignorance is Bliss."

Hysingla ER (hydrocodone): "Before this drug my pain was so extreme that I physically couldn't get out of bed or do any housework. I was miserable to say the least. I went from taking 4 percocet a day (5mg) to taking 20mg hysingla still with 1 or 2 percocet for breakthrough pain. This medication after a couple days has improved my life so much that I am in shock still from the relief. People only see the bad reviews on here and get scared like I did! I had not bad side effects and every time I felt bad pain, shortly later it was relieved. And unlike some other "24 hour" extended release drugs, this one really does last around the clock. Please if you have relief with this medication, share your experience so others can see the good as well when they come to this website!! I hope your experience is as successful as mine has been so far"

Zohydro ER (hydrocodone): "Medicine is reasonably effective after 3 weeks. Some breakthrough pain requires additional medicine. I wake in the morning without high levels of pain due to ER."

Hysingla ER (hydrocodone): "All of this is the fault of physicians and pharmaceutical company's. At this point they're getting so much pressure to get people off of opioids that they either don't care or have no choice but to prescribe drugs that don't work. If they don't solve this problem people are going to start buying heroin or something else just to get pain relief"

Hysingla ER (hydrocodone): "I took 10mg, 3x day hydrocodone for a year prior to a new pain doc in a new state requiring I switch to Hysingla ER. I had only had one 10mg hydrocodone for each of the two days prior to beginning the Hysingla so this was not withdrawals. An hour after the 20mg pill, my heart was pounding hard, short of breath, which progressed to severe abdominal pain, nausea, the worst pain of my life (easily 2-3x my very worst days with stage 3 adhesive arachnoiditis, Ehlers-Danlos, and innumerable tarlov cysts on my spinal cord), joint pain, muscle pain and spasms, and I could literally feel my CSF pulsing in my spinal cord. The doc actually made me take a second dose because she thought I was in withdrawal. I vomited the 2nd one and nearly aspirated it"

Hysingla ER (hydrocodone): "I have had chronic pain since 2002. I have Reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) in low back both legs below knee both feet. Long story short I have been on pretty much every pain med there is. Had over 200 nerve blocks. Had nerve endings burned off. PT you name it. Now I have a medicine dosing machine inside my abdomen with a cath that runs directly into my spinal cord. I tried this hyslinga it's worked great. I'm surprised so many people have not had relief from it. But if I didn't have the pump implant I'm pretty sure I would be on the highest dose they make."

Hysingla ER (hydrocodone): "My doctor just switched me from 30mg of MS Contin to hysingla 20mg once a day. Mind you I have been taking the same thing for over 4 years. This hysingla is a joke!!! After 3 hours I was in so much pain I thought I was dying!! Felt like I was going to be sick, and not from the medicine, it was because I was in so much pain. Whoever said this lasts for 24 hours is completely ridiculous. Worst ever!!"

Hysingla ER (hydrocodone): "This medicine is a joke. They want to take you off Percocet and hydrocodone and put you on this medicine which is supposed to be longer acting. But I’d rather take six Percocet 10 mg a day then one of these. They had me on 40 mg for four weeks it didn’t help with my pain whatsoever."

"Made my throat feel, tight. Little pain relief. I only took two in 12 hours so maybe didn’t give it a good try. Both knees are in bad shape and have had back surgery."

Hysingla ER (hydrocodone): "First of all, I’ve been on many different pain medications for several years and I’ll have to say this is the worst drug ever made! Purdue should be legally bound for charging over $500 for 30 pills no matter the strength, and for my situation, I’m taking the 40mg pill that Purdue claims works a whopping 24-hours ! First of all, what I have noticed is that it takes 8 hours upon dosing just to start anything, so let’s subtract 24-8 and that leaves 16hrs. Now, if I told you that this miracle and very expensive drug lasted for 16hrs well I would be telling you it is incorrect so in all practicality, it should be scheduled for every 12 hours instead, twice daily. Don’t waste your time or money on this pathetic pill!"

Hysingla ER (hydrocodone): "My doc switched me to this due to some issues with morphine sulphate ER 15mg three times a day. He put me on the Hysingla ER at 20mg once a day with the oxy 15mg x2 for breakthru pain. Been on it for two days and am in constant pain at a 6/7 level. With the other med I was 4/5 on bad days. So disappointed not too mention the cost is more than double for me. Don't know if the dose is just two low considering how long I've been on pain meds Guess I could ask him to up it to 40mg and see if that works. 20mg isn't hacking it at all. So tired of the government sticking its nose into my health."

Zohydro ER (hydrocodone): "I have been taking Hydrocodone for over 18 years due to a lower back injury(bulging lower disc),wear & tear from 25 years of Factory Work & Fibromyalgia (associated with those 25 years.) I'm 62 retired & still very physically active. After 2 hours of medium heavy lifting, pushing or pulling I feel like a truck has ran me over..head to toe.I have taken many pain medications...Oxycontin, Vicodin, Morphine, Tramadol(poison!) Lyrica(poison!),etc After many years what finally worked best was 6 7.5/200 Vicoprofen a DAY + a Fentanyl 25mcg patch every 3 DAYS.After 2 years my Doctor switched me to Zohydro. I said sure.After just ONE DAY I'm feeling GREAT! I take two 30MG Zohydos a DAY + Vicoprofen for break thru. I have only taken three 7.5 pills today! WORKS"

Zohydro ER (hydrocodone): "Won't go into details, but horrible chronic back pain. Very happy with Zohydro. I tried a bunch and it's by far the best. Only problem is that it's not easy to find. Hope they fix that soon."
