Vicodin Vs. Hydrocodone/acetaminophen Sol Apap


My wife is taking Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen SOL APAP at 2 tsps every 4 hours. Is Vicodin 5/500 the equivalent to this and can she take the Vicodin instead? She just had the Gastric Bypass almost a week ago.

Vicodin does contain the same active ingredients (Hydrocodone and Acetaminophen), so it all depends on what dosage she is currently taking. Another thing to consider is that there may be a reason why she was prescribed this medication in a syrup form instead of a tablet, especially that she had surgery related to the digistive system. Ultimately it would be advisable to check with her doctor before making any switches like that, especially with such a potent medication. Wishing her a speedy recovery! Please reply with any other details or questions which you can think of...

My doctor just prescribed me Loaratab in error. He wrote the prescription a bit wacky and the Pharmacy instead of filling the bottle with Hydrocodine ES 750’s put Loaratab in it.

The prescription said something like, Vicodine ES 750 – 500 and I got Loaratab.

I have taken the Loaratab for my pain and it don’t come close to the relief I get from the ES 750’s

Can you tell me the difference between the two ?

Hi Lee - does it say on the prescription bottle how much of each active ingredient are in the Lortab? If so, please post back with those details.

Vicodin ES contains Acetaminophen 750mg + Hydrocodone 7.5mg, so now it's a question of what the proportion of ingredients in the Lortab is.

I had a prescription for vicodin and got hydrocodone/apap.
I also had a prescription for Motrin and got Ibuprofen.
Should I take them back to the drug store?
