Zohydro or 'Super Vicodin' approved for next year. A schedule II, it contains TEN times the narcotic hydrocodonebitartrate in a 5 mg regular Lortab or Vicodin. In other terms it has NO Tylenol and fifty milligrams of straight narcotic MU pure agonist analgesic equivalent narcosis of five Norco's with no APAP.(50mg) and it is immediately bio available for a solid 4 hours of highly effective severe pain reduction. No antagonist is in the Zohydro , so a combination of any other narcotic will synergistically act to lower pain . The only caution is the lowered sense of less notable pulmonary reflex and possible < good oxygen saturation due to a lessened cough reflex and lung inflation diminishing. Nausea and emesis with suffocation via obstruction of airway is a danger. With all MU pure agonists that cause vomiting or syncope/ coma.

Unknown but available at Age Well compounding in Lompoc Ca. It is a little expensive but only a CIII. 15 mg of hydrocodone bitartrate with only 60 of acetaminophen (APAP) one could take these 2-3 capsules q4h or more without exceeding 4 grams / 24h of Tylenol -that is serious pain analgesia. It will cost you but it is deliverable if you are unable to get out of bed. Before they all but did away with detailed online legal Internet sales I thank the Lord I could get a compounder to send via FedEx 100 Count 15/200 hydro/ APAP's and # 60 Ct 2 mg alprazolam tabs with 2 refills.

There is an answer to this national opiod abuse epidemic on the horizon. There is a new Phara co. called Elite Pharma ELTP which has developed much safer abuse deterrent opiods using a 2 bead agonist antagonist technology. It is much more resistant to abuse compared to whats available now. Their technology can be used on ALL opiods. the FDA will fast track this through. Congress and the Public want this fix. This is the future of the oral pain sector.

Several anti-abuse technologies being fast tracked by the FDA as we speak. When these come on-line that'll be the end of P u r d u e Pharma's monoply on oxycontin and drive the price down on some of the other name brand (branded) pharmaceuticals.

There was an article just recently posted here about it, I believe it's set for release sometime very soon, like within a couple months.

Apparently it has people "worried". But the thing is, if someone wants to eat 50mg of hydro, they're going to. May as well not have them kill their liver at the same time with APAP.

The war on drugs isn't really going anywhere, and I think they need to focus more on harm reduction.

Do I think people should IV their meds? No. But I DO think they should have access to clean needles to do so....because they're gonna do it regardless .

Yep, 1 brand-new $1 sterile needle allowed to be handed-out as a preventitive to disease potentially can save $100,000's in government subsidized health care tax dollars. Thats' harm reduction to both the drug user and society as whole...some things are just a GOOD idea!
