My doctor prescribed me (60) 30mg. Oxycodone's. But my pharmacist gave me (120) 15 mg. pills as a substitute. My question is will (2) 15 mg. pills have the same effect as (1) 30 mg. pill?

It is the same as to the amount of Oxycodone, you will be receiving 30 MG of Oxycodone.
However it comes down to POTENCY-!
The 30MG is 2x the strength of a 15.
This is exactly why others here are trying to say but they do not understand why 1 (30) works way better than 2 (15s).
It does because it is more potent.
My Dr made take an opioid class before he would prescribe me them
Look at it this was, 800mg ibuprofen.
So if you take 4 200 MG ibuprofens are you get 800mg of it, yes you are getting 800mg of ibuprofen. So if that's the case, then why do you need a prescription for 800mg ibuprofen, you need a prescription because now you are get 800mg potency of ibuprofen not 200-!!!!
Hope this helps, any opioid specialist will tell you the same exact statement-!

I'm sorry that on top of all the problems you have...some i**** who thinks like (Roxanne) is not only a i**** but a uneducated one at that!! It's not like we want to have to take medicine for fun..but we hurt and we don't need to hear crap about who is a failure as a human being. ..maybe when she is in hell..burning..she will cry for help with the never ending fire that will surround her! I wish everyone well and hope for better days for all of us!

Hey , I needed to respond not all patients of oxycodone 30mg are addicts, I my self am on 30 mg and I had to city jobs , I got injured on the job , I have spinal stenosis, I just had surgery on my lumbar I have a tear on both my shoulders I have a torn meniscus and really bad carpal tunnel in my wrist, I need 4 more surgeries and the main one is fusion of my cervical, if it wasn't for my meds I would be a person in bed all day due to pain, I hate taking pills but some of us just don't have a choice , and after all the pain is gone then we have to go through the pain of getting off the pain meds which is another task in it self , please be more mindful of how u speak about people who r suffering everyday in pain , patients who r really hurt should not be labeled an addict, u can be in the same boat one day, God bless you and have a good day.

Some people had a real job serving the front line of this country and got really screwed up to the point they can't walk without painkillers jerk. Wait until you're injured and permentally disabled. The guy who posted got perscribed them by a doctor, you have no idea what's wrong with anyone taking them, even the people who said this or that one worked better.
Your day will come and you'll eat those words, pr!ck

I work 60 plus hours a week, on my feet all day with severe back issues. These are the only thing KEEPING me working and a productive member of society. It IS the abusers, however, that sometimes make it hard for people like me to get the relief i need. Mind you, they only take the worst edge off my pain. I'm still in pain every hour of every day. But they help me keep going. Without this medicine i would be home living off government checks which barely cover necessities. Everyone has different levels, and different tolerances for PAIN.

A Roxanne, you are the voice of the essence of the problem on our planet, you will in your lifetime never evolve past the low brow consciousness you so uneloquently display. Its to bad little monsters like yourself exist, and to everyone we must be able to identity these scum, and that they lie in wait in many facets of our country, don't listen to them they are the in evolved truly in human.

Did they teach you to spell & to rant & rave at people you don't know or have their medical files in front of you (being your a licensed MD) to read and thus properly diagnose? I gotta say, your life must truly be the worst out of anyone's I've ever heard or seen. I think you have serious personal issues, & I also think you work for the DEA about as much as I do NASA & am currently in putter space w/ Mr. Kelly writing you this message. You are truly a sad example of a mother who's child started taking YOUR MARIJUANA & then moved onto more heavy drugs & now is on smack or has been through a dozen rehabs, or even lost your child (for this I'm very sorry & send my condolences) but you have no idea my friend what true CHRONIC PAIN EVEN IS, more less what it feels like to deal w/ this every day of your life. I will agree w/ you that this particular thread/discussion is truly BS & should not even be talked of, but the beautiful Constitution of this great country allows folks to freely discuss issues which don't harm other folks, & in this case the only harm I see is your threats & attitude which resembles that of a teenager. If you truly were a DEA agent you would know the problems people are having with their pain medications is because of your group of bullies & your streets that you have flooded with opioids to make money for you so called " WAR ON TERROR " which has only given the US rights to Afghanistan's Poppy Fields & oil supplies. Let me guess, your desire to lock up these innocent people is to somehow get back at the unknown drug dealers that destroyed your child's life, & I ask you, do you feel that, that is making the issue better?, or is it making it worse? I'm trying to work with you here but I just don't see why locking up the obviously legit pain sufferers is going to help you live a more productive life. I ask you since your so bold in stating why innocent people should be inprisioned, & that your an active DEA agent, etc, etc. to PLEASE TELL US THE PEOPLE WHO PAY YOUR SALARY AND PUT FOOD ON YOUR TABLE, what is your Badge number & what is your Real Name, & I challenge you to let your superiors read the post you left to these innocent people. If you do this, myself having fussed ( shattered ) discs & hip replacement surgery that went wrong & several other issues that require me to also have to take pain medication in order to get up out of bed each & every day, but back to what I was writing, if you give us both your badge ID & your correct name, I WILL GO TO SOME SORT OF REHAB (against my doctors will) & get off the one medication I take to help me to live a more productive life, & thus I will give up this peace of mind to not only my body which is a wreck but both my mind, & my physical body, again big bad DEA agent, just tell us your badge ID & your real name & post it beside a copy & pasted form of your most hanious of posts I've ever read & you can have what little bit of life I have in your back pocket, now we all know the next move is yours. Cheers, Nadine

Your not the dea and even If you are you aren't doctors soo mind your business. who are you to say who is in pain or not? I'm 26yrs old and take 6 30mg oxycodone IR a day. I was in Iraq protecting your ass. And got hit by a IED 2 of my fellow soldiers died. And I was thrown 60ft in the air. I broke my back in 3 places and will never be the same. The pills are the only thing that makes life livable now. And i still have to deal with s*** from dumb f**** like you from time to time. I don't have cancer and I dare you to say I dont need my meds. I hope you feel real good making it hard on pain patients to get the meds they need. I earned a purple heart for my service. And guess what I still work a full time job even know I'm (doped up) as u say. I think I've proven you wrong forward and backwards up and down.. The least you can do is apologize to us pain patients for your rude, Obnoxious outlandish insensitive comments and ridiculous views on drugs.

THAT'S FUNNY... THE "DEA" IS HIRING ELEMENTARY SCHOOL DROP OUTS?!!??!

Semi-proper spelling, grammar, and less slang may have rendered you more believable, at least to a few i****s...lmao!

Why are you so bitter? Did your doctor lick the red off of your lollipop or should I say stop your prescription of narcotics because you're a fake?  Hello, NEWS FLASH, it does not take cancer to have debilitating pain... And when you have it you'll drink poison if that's what it takes to alleviate just a small amount.

Here's a bit advice... Try walking in ones shoes before you pass judgement. Hopefully, that won't be what it takes, real pain will lead you to lows you never knew existed and to a life you no longer want to exist. Believe it or not... it's a last resort for most of us.

I hope you have a pain-free day!!

So...say you're a doctor (this is hypothetical, though the situation and injuries are real) and two patients come in after a car accident. One person has a dislocated shoulder, a concussion, a torn trapezius, and two herniated disks in their neck. The other has a broken nose, a concussion and their leg is broken in two places which would get infected. Both have to stay for an extended period of time in the hospital and multiple surgeries ahead of them. Are you proposing in this situation to send both of these patients with nothing but NSAIDs and Tylenol?

People forget that extreme pain can cause major problems including fever, dangerously elevated blood pressure, elevated pulse, dehydration, and shock which can cause death.

I believed similarly to Roxanne before the accident, although not quite to her extreme. At the young age of 25, I have discovered that pain meds have an extremely place in medical care. They make what could have been a fatal or bedridden condition 100 years ago, (due to shock or other complications) something that not only you can live through, but actually have a life afterwards.

There are always people that abuse what is in front of them, just take alcohol as a HUGE example- prohibition obviously didn't work! But pain medication cannot be banned because some abuse it. Perhaps there should be limits on amounts prescribed at one time, or tried along with holistic approaches of pain management, or stricter guidelines on when doctors can prescribe what. But drugs such as oxycodone are critical tools in preserving patients' lives.
