does it contain aspirin or nsaid druge
Hydrocodone APAP contains acetaminophen. The 500 refers to how many mgs. of acetaminophen are found in each pill (the 5 refers to hydrocodone). Most hydrocodone (lortab,lorcet, etc.) and oxycodone medications contain acetaminophen. Acetaminophen enhances the pain effectiveness of hydrocodone, an important fact because of hydrocodone's narcotic properties; the less of it needed the better.
I have been taking Tizanadine2mgand Oxycodone10 mg for over a year and develope bone spurs in my ankle so went to podiatrist who prescrbed piroxicam 20mg. for 21 days 3 days following the piroxicam developed stomach pains i had a colonoscopy inthe hospital yesterday, the questions are am i going to die and what medications should i take since the tizanidine and oxycodone contain NSAID i am still not feeling well. a reply Doctor would be appreciated. Thank you
No, I don't think you will die, but you need to follow your doctor's recommendations. It sounds as if you are having side effects from intensive NSAID therapy. Piroxicam use can result in gastrointestinal toxicity, tinnitus, dizziness, headache, rash, and pruritus. The most severe adverse reactions are peptic ulceration, gastrointestinal bleeding, and severe skin reactions including Stevens-Johnson_syndrome and toxic epidermal necrolysis.There are medications that help your stomach deal with NSAIDS, such as Misoprostol, but if you are experiencing such severe side effects you should really consult a gastroenterologist for subsequent treatment. Your family doctor or internist should be able to refer you to one in your area. Until your consult, you should abide your physicians suggestions, but if these symtoms were mine own, I would stop treating with NSAIDS (tylenol might be acceptable if needed with Oxycodone) until I was able to be tested for reactions to your NSAID use. Please note that I am not a medical doctor. Good luck to you.
