Which Is Stronger Hydrocodone 10 325 Or Oxycodone 5 325
70 Replies RSS
I have been taking Hydrocodone 10/325 for chronic pain, 1 pill every 6 hours. My Dr. just prescribed Oxycodone 5/325 with up to 2 pills every 6 hours. Which is stronger? ## The oxy is stronger but who knows your body may b used 2 the vicoden. But if he is allowing u 2 take 2 @ a time it would b better if he would just give u the percocet 10/325 as it would b as effective with 1/2 the amount of aspirin. Try it out n post your feedback. ## Scott is correct, the Oxycodone is actually stronger than the Hydrocodone. To equal 10mgs of the Hydrocodone, you only need 6.67mgs of the Oxycodone, so I'd advise caution when you first take them, you probably shouldn't take 2 of them, until you try one and see how well it works for you. Are there any questions or comments? ## Thank you for the...

Angelique - control of menopause
Post a Reply
hello, I am away and rainout of Angeliq tablets. Silly me, but medical aid full of nonsense in giving another pack in advance,however thought a week off was not to serious. I have been off a week soon, and started bleeding after two days. A brown discharge then to red normal bleeding discharge. Is this normal. I have been on Angeliq for 6 years with supervision of my Gynae. I recently had a polyp removed and they are insisting that if another polyp re-occurs I should have the insertion of the Mirena ring which has less of the one hormone that causes polyps. I heard though that the Mirena has had major problems/side effects as do most tablets etc. Which is better? Any natural remedies as last resort.

viibryd for panic attacks/depression
3 Replies RSS
First day (morning) after taking Viibryd. Took my first 10 mg last night before bed. Slept ok. No weird nightmares. Regular 6/7 hours of sleep. But I do take Ambien. Did not take with food and was OK. Woke up with tummy hurting and had to go to the bathroom twice. (they're right on that part). But... best of all- I def. feel so much happier after just one dose. Not sure yet how it will work on my panic attacks/anxiety but so far I am hopeful. After trying just about all the other SSRI's that always did not work for one reason or another... I am hoping this one just keeps getting better. Worked fast. I usually wake up very lack luster. Today... I woke up happy. Big difference!!! And that was just the first dose. I will check back after a week to update. I was def nervous taking t...

difference between oxycodone and tramadol
3 Replies RSS
I am on ocxycodone for pain. I am out but hav an old script for tramadol. How many 50mg tramadol would I have to take for it to balance out to one 10 mg oxycodone? ## Tramadol is much more powerful than many physicians claim it is. Get it filled. It will replace the narcotic effects of the other opiate & common dose is 2tabs at 50mg each. I've been to hell & back with tramadol withdrawals & vice versa with the others for many years; pharmacists all over the country will tell you the truth: one opiate replaces the other when it comes to withdrawals. Period ## Hello, James! How are you? While it does work very well for some people, Tramadol is actually a much weaker opiate, so it would require approximately 150mgs of it to be equal to each 10mg dose of Oxycodone. Of course...

Medical scripts for pain.
Post a Reply
I've been on soma for decades. Having troubles finding a dr. that will prescribe them. THESE ARE NON NARCOTIC. MUSCLE RELAXERS for Christ's sake!!! Baclocen almost killed me. I am NOT allowed quality of life....even though there is legal medication to allow quality. I've been forced to go underground to get relief. Unfortunately im on ss disability with 0 copay on LEGAL meds. But cuz i go another route it costs me big bucks.

Adderal manufactured by Teva not working
124 Replies RSS
I have had two refills of Adderall 20 mg that was manufactured by Teva/barr (Teva) and it seems to have much less medication in each pill. Refills by another manufacturer work. This is rediculous and where do we report Teva and who can check each pill for amount fo medication? I would gladly donate some of my worthless ones to the FDA? ## You'd have to report any complaints to the FDA, at 888-INFO-FDA. However, there may not actually be anything to report. They do allow generic medications to differ from the name brands, in the amount of the active ingredient, by up to plus or minus 20%. This is considered an acceptable therapeutic window. For most people, these differences don't cause any problems, but if someone is sensitive to medications, it means that one with a slightly lo...

I started the fentanyl patch 100 today after 3 years of OxyContin, the last dose of Oxy was 80OP 4 times per 24 hours. How does the patch fair?
6 Replies RSS
Hello, friends! I started the Fentanyl patch 100mc today after OxyContin treatment my highest dose was 80OP up to 4 per 24 hours. I suffer from agonizing chronic pain due to severe nerve damage in my feet (medical neglect and misdiagnosed 3 years ago). I've build up opioid tolerance pretty quickly, so my doctor suggested the Fentanyl patches, plus, I felt "victimized by the system" - all and everyone plays the "Cops", lecturing me about the risks of opioids, treating me like a "junkie". Nothing against those that use these meds recreationally, but because of those very people, I will convulse in ER, and the attending doctor will insist on reaching my neurologist first before administering the pain relief... Finally, my doctor suggested these patches - I am MO...

what exactly does suboxone do? is it addicitive?
261 Replies RSS
i have a friend who desperately wants to get off of methadone and pain pills. will suboxone work? is it addicitive too? if someone can please help me that would be great! also is it very expensive, that's what i've heard. ## Well, first off, yes, it can be addictive as well, however, it has distince advantages over narcotic meds, Benzos, and even Methadone. Suboxone works on many of the same receptors, since it is a narcotic agent, however, it does not give the same high effect and euphoria that most addicts enjoyed, which is what made them get addicted in the first place. It also contains an opiate neutralizer, so it neutralizes anything in your system from the other drugs you were using, and of course prevents someone from continuing to use while they are on it. Most people wh...

Can You Cut The Fentanyl Patch In Half
25 Replies RSS
I asked my doctor the same question yesterday, she said "no", because once it hits the air, the strength starts to dissipate, or weaken. So she put me on the lowest dose, as I hope to get off them and all meds eventually. ## No, you can't cut it in half and the reason for it is because it is time released and cutting the patch could cause you to get too much of the medication at once, which may result in a dangerous overdose. Learn more Fentanyl details here. Are there any other questions or comments? ## What about the new style without the gel. You know like the nicotine patches Can you cut those ones half? and just cut your dose.. thanks.. Dave ## I have been using the Mylan matrix (non-gel) patches for some time now and have had no problems with cutting them. I remove 1/6...
