You are either a novice pharmacologist or an addict trying to justify your addiction. If you are actually a pharmacologist, then you would know that hydrocodone has a very complex metabolic structure. It's metabolic pattern includes O- demethylation, N-demethylation and 6-keto reduction to the corresponding 6-&#945;- and 6-&#946;- hydroxymetabolites. If you are a true pharmacologist, you will know what this means.
Acetaminophen metabolizes quickly in the gastric system and thus can be labeled "immediate release."
If you would like to debate pharmacology and organic chemistry, I am game. Trust me though, you will lose this debate.
Doc, the jig is up. Why don't you just cut your losses and be done with your impersonation? You have been thoroughly exposed as a fraud, so why not pose as an amateur copy and paste expert next time? The OP asked for help, not a charlatan under his own delusion..

No physician is allowed to write a prescription for a narcotic in a dosage that will even remotely cause addiction. No doctor is going to risk their license even if it were possible to do this. No patient becomes addicted to a narcotic painkiller simply from a prescription written for them by their physician. People become addicted when they obtain multiple prescriptions from multiple doctors or purchase them off the street. Anyone doing this knowingly does this to obtain the pleasurable sensation they obtain from the drug. In a short amount of time doing this, they become addicted. I've heard the sob stories about back pain, arthritic pain, nerve pain, etc. They are all excuses an addict uses to justify how they became addicted. Going to one physician for pain and obtaining a prescription for a narcotic for that pain will not and does not induce addiction - period. There are enough checks and balances to keep this from happening. Again, the process is abused by seeking out more doctors willing to write more prescriptions. It is difficult to overcome this addiction. It is a physical addiction in that you simply cannot tolerate going "cold turkey." It is very dangerous to go "cold turkey." Withdrawal symptoms include violent spasms and tremors in joints that induce pain that cannot be tolerate

without medical help. One must seek a certified rehabilitation center and plan on spending at least a week along with continued therapy. However, there are multitudes of success stories I would be more than happy to share. The first step is realizing where and why you went wrong. The next step is the initiative to do something about it.
You must be a moron! I have never posted before, but I could not help myself after reading your narrow minded views. Many patients become tolerant to the drugs being prescribed for legitimate pain. People who have NEVER multi-doctored or doctor shopped! If they stop their medication, they suffer from withdrawal symptoms. If there is a difference between tolerance to a drug (so that it no longer helps) and being addicted, it certainly feels the same when the drug is stopped.

Switching from one type of drug to another seeking pain relief can happen. Some pain doctors are truly there to help you and others might be there to line their pockets. However, making a statement that a patient cannot become addicted by legitimate prescription is naive.

A pain patient does not need a 12 step program! I don't imagine that you have ever suffered with chronic pain. You certainly cannot know the suffering when pain dictates your entire life and steals any happy moment.

Judging comes easy to some. You have to walk in someone's shoes before making such idiotic statements!
