ZOHYDRO ER: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Pain “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.”

For Pain “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.”

For Pain “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.”

For Pain “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”

For Pain “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.”

For Pain “My pain Dr started me on 10mg x 2 per day after a few years on 7.5 hydros 4+x per day. After the 1st week, and some withdrawal symptoms, they give no relief. Maybe Dr started me too low mg and see him next day. I hope he ups mg to at least 15 and 20 probably will be better. He said he can add the old hydro for breakthrough pain but at this point I feel at least two 7.5mg per day and that’s only 2 less than before. He should go to 20mg 2x per as I have a bad spine from head to tail, facet arthritis, Spinal stenosis, Spondylolisthesis, deteriorating disk and spinal neuropathy….I’m through…I covered them all!!”
