    I have been taking 7.5 750 hydrocodone f1/2 at a time about every 2-3 hours for pain for about 2 years.  My doctor just changed it to 7.5 325.  I does not feel the same what can I do? How can I use the new strength to be the same as the old prescription?  I need to know soon.

    The only thing the doctor changed was the acetaminophen dose. You are still getting 7.5mg of hydrocodone. He lowered the acetaminophen dose from 750 to 325. I think he did you a favor. The acetaminophen does more damage to your liver than the narcotic does.  Good luck...................Scooter
