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.

Doctors get more commission for prescribing Hydrocodene, they seem to be same power to me and I have used them a lot.

I had major back surgery back in 2006 and have been taking Hydrocodone 10/325 for 8 yrs and it stopped working for me all of a sudden, I read the label and they changed the manufactor of the hydrocodone to watson so I figured that was it but according to the pharmacy and Doctor it shouldnt have mattered but watson went from a yellow pill that worked for me to a white pill and I started hurting, the pharmacy told me they pulled the yellow pill off the shelf.So the Doctor prescrbed me oxycodone 5/325 and that pill makes me groggy and puts me in a bad mood and aggravated at the world unlike the yellow hydrocodone that I took so whats the advice from anyone about what should I take ????

take a regular Tylenol with it. they've removed as much Tylenol, I take 10/325 and add a 500 mg Tylenol and I've been happy with the pain killer effects. I promise, it works. But I'm actually on this thread to see what my doctor may do next after hydrocodone 10/325 for about 6 yard now and have been in pain level 8 for a little while. Good luck.

They both have the same amount of aspirin. The number "325" represents the amount of aspirin, were as the "5" and "10" represent how much medication (hydro or oxy) is in the pill. So 10 is more medication than 5, and the amount of aspirin never changes. Recently it was discovered that once you reach 325 aspirin, it caps out in your body, meaning even if you took 600 aspirin it would have the same affect as 325. So to prevent unessessary liver damage, drugs no longer have more than 325 aspirin.

Tell your Dr to write ORIGINAL ONLY NON GENERIC on the script and you'll get the original Vicodin, Norco, Lortab instead of the often weaker generic counterpart. Good luck! Ben
