oxycodone or dilada
I just returned from the emergency room for a fall i took through the ceiling, and landed on a staircase about 12 foot fall. Anyway they gave me a shot of dilada 2 mg and another several hrs 1 mg the 1 mg had no effect so they gave me 1 more mg. I just returned home with my prescription for oxycocone 5 325. will 1 pill be equilavent to the shot? i dont want to take too much but without the pain relief my stomach and back muscles constrict so bad i cant get a good breath and I dont want to go thru that again while I wait for the pill to take effect. ## The 5mgs in the tablet stands for the amount of Oxycodone and the 325mgs is the amount of Acetaminophen. Oxycodone is a very strong narcotic pain reliever, so taking more than recommended could be very dangerous. ...

Oxycodone 350mg compare Hydocone 5mg
Compare Oxycodone 350 mg to Hydocone 5mg ## The Oxycodone is slightly stronger than the Hydrocodone, so for each 5mgs of Hydrocodone, you would only need 3.33mgs of the Oxycodone. Thus, if you wanted to know how much of the Hydrocodone would be equal to a 350mg dose of Oxycodone, the answer is 525mgs. These are both narcotic pain medications, so the side effect profiles are similar and may include: nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and dry mouth. Learn more: Is there anything else I can help with? ...

Which Is Stronger Hydrocodone10-650mausty voila Or Oxycodone 5 325
i'm on ocycontin 60mg 4xs daily my break through pain med is either hydrocodone 10-650 or oxycodone w acetaminophen 5-325 which is more effective for pain relief i have to chose one ## At that narcotic dosage, 10mgs of Hydrocodone, versus 5mgs of Oxycodone, they are roughly equivalent. The only way to see which one may be more effective for you is to actually try one of them and see how it works. The Hydrocodone option does have more Acetaminophen in it. so you may also want to base your decision on how concerned you are about that, since it can cause some stomach problems. They both have the same side effect profile, since they are both narcotics, and this may include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and stomach irritation. Are there any other comments or questions? ## my doctor swit... ...

oxycodone w/apap 5/325 tab
oxycodone w/apap ## what are the effects ## I have oxycod/apap 3-325mg tablets but on the tablet themselves it says 512. Is this correct? ## Bien, yes, that would bea generic for Percocet, containing 5mgs of Oxycodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen. ## I have had my wisdom teeth taken out two at a time. The first time my oral surgeon prescribed me a mix of Lortab and Ibuprofen i think, this time he gave me Percocet. If they both contained 5 mg of Lortab or Oxycodone which one is stronger? And what is the difference between the Acetaminophen and Ibuprofen. Is one of those stronger also? Thank you for any replies. ## I was using half tablet every 4 hours for my pain..All gone and body was relaxed ## Is this for pain relief or muscle relaxant? (or both) ## Why does my oxcodod/apap say IP 203 ... ...

Oxycodone and or Morphine
I find it ridiculous that sooo many people are messing around with schedule II narcotics yet have no clue to the potency, side effects, druG interactions, etc.. are you people not adults? Oxy is indeed a good 1.5% stronger than morphine and not at all subtle like morphine.. Most doses of Oxy that are between 15-30 mg are IR's not ER (extended release like most morphine)... SO bE CAREFUL AND FOR YOUR LIFE'S SAKE! DO SOME SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH BEFORE POPPING YOUR PILLS ;IKE CANDY!! 60 mg of oxy in one release can stop your breathing! ## Hello, Nobody! Thank you for the warning you have posted for others. However, I do want to correct one point. The only instant release Oxycodone available is a 5mg capsule. Anything greater than 5mgs is regular release or time released. This is a nar... ...

which is stronger hydrocodone or oxycodone 5 325 which makes you more tired?
my doctor switched me to Oxycod/apap 5-325 from Hydroco/apap 5-325. Which one makes you tired? ## Hello, CK! How are you? The Oxycodone is stronger, you only need 3.33mgs of it to be equivalent to each 5mgs of the Hydrocodone. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Learn more Percocet details here. As to which makes you more tired, I can't really answer that. Side effects are individualized, so it will really depend on you and how you react to any given medication. Is there anything else I can help with? ## So if I've been taking 15 mg of percocet I would need 25 mg of vicodin to get the same relief? ...

Oxycodone Vs Fentanyl Withdrawals
I have just switched from oxycodone to fentanyl patches. I will be withdrawing from them following sugery. any suggestions as to which is easier to withdraw from? Thanks!!! ## Well, the Fentanyl is actually much stronger than the Oxycodone, a 0.025mg dosage of it is equal to 5mgs of Oxycodone, so it is going to be the harder one to withdraw from, if it is stopped abruptly. However, the other fact of relevance is how long you will be using it. If it is only for a short period of time, them the withdrawals may not be too rough, though they may still be annoying. Has your doctor provided you with any advice? ## i have been on fentanyl for a long time. prior to this was on a bunch of oxycodone. to give you an idea i was taking anywhere to 3 or 4 of the 80s per day and 5 or 6 of the Roxi 30s... ...

Oxycodone 5mgtab With The Letter K 18
YES!,I WANTED TO KNOW,THE PILLS R SMALLER THEN THEOXYCODONE/APAP5-325MG,THAT I USUALLY TAKE,IS THAT MEAN THAT IT WONT BE STRONG ENOUGH TO TAKE CARE OF MY PAIN SINCE ITS SMALL? ## The difference between them is that this one doesn't contain the added the Acetaminophen, which helps the Oxycodone work better, the one marked K18 only contains 5mgs of Oxycodone. It may help with your pain, but without the Acetaminophen it may not work as well for you, the only way to find out is to try it. And the size of pill really has nothing to do with what's in it or how well it will work. Manufacturers use many fillers and binders in their pills, so some are much larger than they have be, without containing any more active ingredients. Oxycodone may cause side effects, such as: nausea, drowsine... ...

Hydroco Apap Tab 5 325 Mg or OXYCODONE CAP 5MG
I am currently taking OXYCODONE CAP 5MG and I will soon run out of these cap. I have plenty of Hydro Apap Tab 5 325 mg tablets. Can I take these instead to use them up. Then request a prescription for the OXYCODONE CAP 5MG ## The Hydrocodone isn't quite as strong as the Oxycodone, so you might not get the same amount of relief from it, though the Acetaminophen in it may help a little, with that. To be specific, the tablet you mentioned contains 5mgs of the Hydrocodone and 325mgs of the Acetaminophen. Since it still contains a narcotic, the side effects are about the same as what you are used to with the Oxycodone and can include: nausea, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

is one 15 Mg Morphine IR vs Two10mg Oxycodone 325 ?
is one 15mg morphime IR stronger than two 10mg 325 oxycodone tablets ? ## No, one 15mg Morphine would be almost equivalent to one 10/325 Percocet and the reason I say almost is due to the Acetaminophen in the Percocet making it work better, so it's like having a dose of the Oxycodone that's a few more milligrams. You can learn more Morphine details here and you can learn more Percocet details here. The conversion is actually 1mg of Oxycodone to 1.5mgs of Morphine. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Not sure about strength as it is so hotly debated but for me attempting to change to morphine 15 mg ir from oxycodone 10/325 was nothing short of hell after 6 days of puking and feeling like I lived in the bathroom , even when breaking it into quarters my Dr. Switched me back ... ...

What the difference between Oxycodone & Hydrocodon
I was just wondering what the difference between Oxycodone and Hydrocodone, it seems to me they both have the same ingredients. Why Oxy or Hydro, what does this mean? ## I AM JUST WONDERING WHAT COLORS AN OXYCODONE [ETHEX041] CAPSULE LOOKS LIKE? ## Ethex 041 Pill Image ## Oxycodone and Hydrocodone No, they are not the same, Hydrocodone is a strong narcotic, but Oxycodone is much stronger, and both work differently for different people. Some people do better and get better results from on or the other. Oxy is also available by itself in tablet or capsule form from 5mgs to 30mgs, Instant Release, and from 10mg to 80mgs in a controlled release form, as well as the forumulations that couple the instant release Oxy with Ibuprofen, Aspirin, or Acetaminophen. Hydrocodone is not available by it... ...

How Much Dilaudid Equals 60mg Parcocet Per 24hrs Thanks Noble
just try to get a handle on percocet compared to diluadid percocet i have 10 trs experience with dilaudid none. thanks,noble ## The Hydromorphone in the Dilaudid is actually stronger than the Oxycodone in the Percocet and a general equivalent daily dose of it would be approximately 22.5mgs, which would be divided up in several doses, throughout the day. Since it is also a narcotic, the side effects are very similar and may include: nausea, dizziness, constipation and headache. Learn more: Is there anything else I can help with? ...
