Comment:
33 year old female. 2-3 teaspoons every 4-6 hours. My surgery was 2 days ago, and in the beginning I was stretching it out to 3 tsp every 5 hours, but now I can barely reach 4 hours. My doctor did warn me that the pain would get worse. But he also put me on an anti-nausea med in case the hydrocodone made me sick. This medicine (promethazine) tastes much worse than the hydrocodone causing me to ... Show Full Comment

I had a my tonsils removed (along with some other upper throat and septum work). My only prob with this med is that it doesn't last long enough. My dose is 15mL every 4 hours. The pain is back in about 1/2 the time.

Comment:
This is working for my child (6yrs) who had her tonsils/adenoids removed. She HATES the taste but knows that it will provide some relief. The day after surgery she was drinking and eating soft foods, but I did give her the med. every 4 hours on the nose. Just swallow it down quickly and chase with a flavored drink (her choice=orange gatorade/vernors) and its done! If she can do it, so can you.

25 year old female with ulcerated esophogus. the med takes the edge off the pain, but i am only able to take it at night due to the drowsiness it causes. The taste is not that bad if you consider the relief it provides.

Comment:
s/p T & A - miserable. MD reccs dose of 15ml/4hours - what?? That means 7.5mg hydrocodone/500mg tylenol. It barely takes the edge off for an hour. WTF? I have had my throat slit open. Even MD reccs to increase to 22.5 ml still leaves me in pain before the 4 hour dosing window opens. SOMETHING HAS TO GIVE! T & A approx 84 hours ago and have not slept more than 2 hours and swallowing is e ... Show Full Comment
