is oxycodone stronger than morphine

I just want to know which drug works the best Oxycodone or Morphine, I was switched from Oxy to Morphine. Was taking Oxy 10/325 and now take 30 on the morphine. ## Hi, Jojo! How are you feeling on the Morphine? Oxycodone is actually one and a half times stronger than Morphine, so for each 10mgs of Oxycodone you'd need 15mgs of Morphine to be equivalent. So, by being switched to 30mgs of Morphine, you're actually on a higher dosage. It is also a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, constipation and drowsiness. Learn more Morphine details here. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I seem to be doing ok on the morphine it isn't making me groggy like they Oxy did which I am very pl... ...

oxycodone, stronger than morphine?
1 Reply RSS
12 years ago I was in a really bad accident. I woke up with 6 broken vertabrae, 11 more that we were told are consuidered the equivalent of severely stress fractured, my cocyx had been removed, my frontal lobes partially seperated, "no functional balance mechanisms" a damaged right hip and two shattered knees. And a bunch of mush more minor injuries. For some people, me for one, any of the codones, including oxycodone, is virtually useless. For severe chronic pain, it is my experience that there is quite simply, no substite foir pure morhne sulphate. I take the stuff only when I hurt to the point that I just have to have some relief. In 12 years I have yet to become addicted to the stuff. I don't suffer from nausea, or constipation, or anything else. I follow a strictly orga... ...

i am now taking morphine sulfate 30 mg er tabs, and oxycodone 30 mg ir tabs morphine1 tablet every 8 hours and 1 tablet of oxycodone every 8 hours.but when waking up in the morning i have these terrible bad headache. i almost have to vomit. is that to happen? thanks sharon ## Hi Sharon, To answer your first question, Oxycodone is said to be approximately 1.5x as potent on a milligram to milligram basis. So for each 30mg Oxycodone, you'd need 45mgs of Morphine. However because everyone reacts to these medications differently, it's almost like comparing apples and bananas here. Regarding side effects, drug interactions state that "using morphine together with oxycodone may increase side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating. Some people may also e... ...

Is 30 Mg Oxycodone Stronger Than 30mg.Morphine Sulfate
16 Replies RSS
WHICH IS STRONGER? I have correctly entered the correct word verification 4-5 times; you people are nuts or absolutely do not know what you are doing! ## I'm sorry that you had trouble posting, but glad you persevered. As to your question, Oxycodone is one and half times stronger than Morphine. So, if you were taking 30mgs of Oxycodone, you'd need 45mgs of Morphine to be an equivalent dose. You can find more Oxycodone details here and there are more Morphine details here. These are both narcotics, so they both carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Sorry for the somewhat terse notation but I was frustrated in getting little to zero information in an immed... ...

morphine imm release tabs that are stronger than oxycodone 30
1 Reply RSS
Help me find something stronger than oxycodone 30 imm release and works longer I'm going too doctors in the morning and I need everyone's help please ## Hello, Caityln! How are you? There is no 30mg immediate release Oxycodone, so if you weren't taking Oxycontin, then I assume you were on the regular release formulation that starts working 15 to 20 minutes after you take it. That said, there are stronger doses of Oxycodone available that could try, if your doctor approves. If you prefer Morphine, you'd need 45mgs of it to be equivalent to each 30mgs of the Oxycodone that you were taking, so more if you need to increase the dosage. The FDA classifies these medications as being narcotic analgesics, so they carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, s... ...

is morphine 15 mg stronger than percocet
1 Reply RSS
Im taking 15mg of morphin and my doctor wants to give me percocet due to recent diagnosis,so I'm kinda wondering if the medication I have now is better or is it about the same?? ## Hi Shelly, According to nih.gov, Oxycodone (one of the main active ingredients in Percocet) is said to be approximately 1.5x stronger than Morphine. If this holds true and I did the math correctly, then 7.5mg of Oxycodone would be equal to about 11.25mg of Morphine (7.5 x 1.5 =11.25); and 10mg of Oxycodone would be equal to about 15mg of Morphine (10 x 1.5 =15). The addition of Acetaminophen in Percocet would probably top the 15mg of Morphine if you were prescribed the 10/325 dosage form. I hope this makes sense!? Never the less, you should be able to trust your doctor to prescribe something of similar or... ...

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.

morphine 15 mg compared to oxycodone
2 Replies RSS
How many oxycodone 5-325 equals 1 morphine 15 mg? ## Hello, DJ! How are you? Oxycodone is one and a half times stronger than Morphine, so you'd need 10mgs of it to equal each 15mgs of Morphine. 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. However, that's not entirely accurate in this case, since the Acetaminophen augments the action of the Oxycodone. It may also differ further, if the Morphine in question is a time released formulation. Is it a generic for MS Contin, or a regular release? ## Vernon, Thank you for your reply. She is back on her morphine now so all is good! Thanks again! ...

Say I take 3 30mg oxycodone, how many 30mg instant morphine would I need? ## Oxycodone is one and half times stronger than Morphine, so for each 30mg Oxycodone, you'd need 45mgs of Morphine, or for 90mgs, you'd need 135mgs of Morphine. Both are narcotics, so you should make sure that you aren't taking more than your doctor has prescribed, because they can cause depression of the central nervous system, as well as respiratory depression.

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.
