percocet vs norco
I'm taking percocet 10/650mg.I have (DDD),(Athritis)and the list goes on.I have a friend on Norco.Can you tell me what the difference is between them and the highest mg.the norco comes in.THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!! ## The Percocet is way better then the Norco bro, and the reason is because Percocet is Oxycodone and Norco is Hydrocodone. what im trying to say is Oxycodone is a stronger and longer lasting Opiate then Norco. i mean it does not matter if u take them both either at the same time, just make sure to watch how much Tylenol/Acetaminophen ur taking, try not to take more 4000 to 5000mgs cause it can damage ur liver. The best Percocet you can get is 10-650 and 10-325 The best Norco you can get is 10-325 or Lorcets which are 10-650 . Hope this helped in anyway at all and fell free ... ...

Lorcet Vs Percocet
What is the medication with these markings IP204? ## This tablet contains 10mgs of Oxycodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen, this combination could be considered a generic for either one, though many doctors refer to Lorcet as being the product that contains 650mgs of the Acetaminophen. This is a narcotic pain reliever, so it may cause side effects, such as: nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and constipation. Learn more: Is there anything else I can help with? ## My apologies, it's been one of those mornings. Lorcet would actually contain Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone, so the tablet you were asking about would be a generic for Percocet, because it contains Oxycodone and Acetaminophen. ## which is considered a stronger medication overall, Lorecet or Norco? I realize that dosages make a diffe... ...

Percocet Vs Lortab
What is the difference in percocet 10/325 and lortab 10/500, I know the amount of tylenol is different, but I've taken both and the lortab seem to work better than the percocet. Is one stronger than the other? ## Lortab contains Acetaminophen, coupled with the narcotic Hydrocodone. Percocet contains Acetaminophen, coupled with the narcotic Oxycodone. So, it might just be that the Hydrocodone works better for you. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

Percocet vs Tramacet
Hi. I'd like information comparing Percocet(oxycodone/ acetaminophen) and Tramacet (tramadol hydrochloride/acetaminophen). Is Percocet a stronger, or more powerful pain killer than Tramacet, and if so, by how much? eg if you have been taking Percocet are you likely to get the same effect from Tramacet? Is there a chart somewhere that compares or ranks all pain killers comparatively? If so please tell me where. Thanks - good health to you all ## The Tramadol is not actually a narcotic, it is derived from an opiated, but it is not actually one, so it is therefore nowhere near as strong as the Percocet, which contains a strong narcotic Oxycodone. ## She asked about Tramacet not Tramadol. Tramacet is an opiate as is Percocet. As for the chart listing different opiates and their strength... ...

percocet vs tramadol
I am a 20 year chronic pain sufferer who every 3 years or so has to detox off 180-240 mg Oxycodone to lower tolerance. Then I start back on 4-6 Percocet a day and gradually increase dosage as needed. I have just completed one of these detoxes using the "Thomas Recipe" - Now, to control the pain again...a friend gave me a few 37.5 mg Tramadol and at the moment I take 2 at a time so 75 mg once a day and find that they elevate my mood quite effectively as well as kill the pain...So I want to know which drug is worse for your liver and brain cells...Tramadol or Percocet? ## As a medical provider my first question to you , would be are you being followed by a pain management doctor. Secondly with the level of Percocet you are taking I would say you have a serious problem . Then do de... ...

percocet vs tramacet
what is the difference between these 2 narcotics and is there any benefit of one over the other ## Tramacet contains the two active ingredients Acetaminophen + Tramadol; which you can take a look at by following the link below... Percocet contains the active ingredients Acetaminophen + Oxycodone. Very similar to Tramacet. To view information on these two ingredients please follow the link below... As you can see from the active ingredients listed above, Tramadol and Oxycodone seem to make the difference between these two narcotics. I personally don't believe either one has any benefit over the other, but it would all depend on how your body copes with the slight difference in each one that determines which one suits you best. Do you have any more questions or concerns? If so, please... ...

Norco 10 3 25 Vs Percocet
I've been taking Norco 10/3.25 for years for severe chronic pain--It's now no longer effective at all--I'm wondering about changing to Percocet 10/3.25 and whether this would be a stronger, more effective and longer lasting med to take--I've tried also Oxy.10 mg. hcl and they work so so and notice I need to take way more often than I ever did with Norco. I don't want to go this route at all!! I'm hoping the Percocet would change all this. Does it? ## I personally was in the same situation as you and I changed from Norco to percocet 10 325. It's much more effective then the Norco was but they have the same time frames. I sampled for a while 15 milligram oxycodones and didn't like those because there is no acetaminophen. I'm glad I made the change 2 per... ...

OXYIR 5MG vs Percocet 5mg
I usually take three 5mg generic percocets that are not Instant Release. I just picked up my script and noticed it has been changed to generic OxyIR that is Instant Release. Do I take my dose as usual? What would be the differences or hazards? ## You should take your dose according to whatever your doctor's prescribing instructions are. The difference between the two is that the Percocet contained both Oxycodone and Acetaminophen and was a regular release formula. The OxyIR contains JUST Oxycodone, without the Acetaminophen and is instant release, so it works to relieve your pain much faster. The side effects are about the same, you may experience: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation. Do you have any other questions? ...

generic percocet vs oxyir
I take generic percpcet 10-325mg. up to 4 times daily for breakthru pain. I just read about the OxyIR and am wondering what would be the same mg. as the percocet if I wanted to discussed this with my dr.? If OxyIR does NOT contain aspirin wouldn't it be healthier for me & my liver? So, I would like to know the amt to discuss with my PM dr so that I can get the same amt. in my body w/o harming my liver like the percocet does. Eva ## Hello, Eva! How are you? Okay, first of all, Percocet does not contain Aspirin, it contains Oxycodone and Acetaminophen, but yes, the Acetaminophen can be a danger to your liver. Second, Oxy IR is only available as a 5mg capsule, so it would not be as strong as the Percocet you currently take. What you would actually be looking for would be the regula... ...

PERCOCET M357 VS PERCOCET 512
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PERCOCET M357 AND PERCOCET 512 ## M357 is NOT percocet, it is a different class of narcotic pain reliever called lorcet or hydrocodone. it is a generic version and not as strong as a perc 5/12 ## That is correct, M357 contains 500mgs of Acetaminophen and 5mgs of Hydrocodone, so this is not an equivelent to Percocet, but, as stated above, a generic for Vicodin or Lortab. It is still a narcotic pain reliever, but not as strong as those containing Oxycodone. This pill marked 512 contains 325mgs of Acetaminophen and 5mgs of Oxycodone and is a generic for Percocet. Side effects are similar for both and can include: nausea, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. You can read more about these medications here: Is there anything else I can help you with? ## are p... ...

Morphine Sulfate Ir 15mg Vs Oxycodone
is morphine sulfate ir 15mg stronger than percocet 10mg? ## No, in this instance, 10mgs of Oxycodone and 15mgs of Morphine would be roughly equivalent in dosage, since the Oxycodone is stronger.

15 Mg Morphine Ir Vs Two10mg Oxycodone 325
is 1 15mg morphime IR stronger than 2 10mg 325 oxycodone tablets ## Yes there stronger ! Morphine has a high acting effect on the neural pathway and does a much better job for relief from what ails us all ! Check a pharm scale the oxy is like 6 or 7 on th list morphine is 2 ! ## hydromorphine 32mgEX what do they use for breakthrew pain..? ## Actually no, Oxycodone is stronger than Morphine by one and a half times. In other words for each 10mg dosage of Oxycodone, you'd need to take 15mgs of Morphine to be equivalent. You can learn more Morphine details here and you can learn more Percocet details here. Additionally, the Acetaminophen in the Percocet potentiates the action of the Oxycodone to help it work better. oldtimefiend, there isn't any specific medication that has to be us... ...

norco 10/375 vs. percocet pain 10/375
How much stronger is the percocet than the norco? ## Hello, April! How are you? For each 10mgs of Hydrocodone in the Norco, you only need 6.67mgs of the Oxycodone in the Percocet. 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. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I hav been on norco tens four a day for two years. i hav become addicted. can i take a percocet ten mg to help withdraw symptoms ...

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 ... ...

Oxycodone Hydrochloride vs Oxycodone Acetaminophen
I had surgery on my foot/ankle about 5 days ago. My dr prescribed percocets 5-325 for the first few days and now oxycodone hcl 5. I have only been prescribed percocets after my 3 c-sections so I don't really know a lot about pain killers. I asked my dr what the difference was and she rambled a lot of big words which I didn't understand. I have tried researching but all of the info is so technical. I pretty much want to know.. in layman's terms, or from someone who is or had taken at some point what the actual difference is besides the percocets also have tylenol in them. Is one stronger(even though they are both 5 mg of oxycodone), last longer, different side effects besides liver with use of tylenol? I am asking because I feel like the percocets helped more with the pain an... ...

Watson brand Oxycodone vs. Mallinkrodt brand Oxycodone
I have 3 herniated disc in my lower back and severe nerve damage down my leg. I've been on Oxycodone 10/325 for the past 4 years. I have always gotten the Watson brand which would keep my pain under control somewhat up until the other day I was given Mallinkrodt brand because my pharmacy had ran out of Watson. These Oxycodone made by Mallinkrodt don't touch my pain what so ever. It's like taking a sugar pill. I'm in extreme pain and don't know what to do or how to go about this. PLEASE SOMEONE HELP ## Since they are both generics for Percocet, which contain Oxycodone and Acetaminophen, there is probably a slight difference in the amounts of the active ingredients that they contain, when compared to each other. Under U.S. federal law, the FDA does allow the generics t... ...

Endocet/Percocet--does it contain less buffer emdocet vs percocet
Which med is better-endocet or percocet...on your overall health on general ## Hello, Stephanie! How are you? Both of the medications that you mentioned contain Oxycodone and Acetaminophen, thus both can be equally as hazardous, due to the fact that the Oxycodone has the potential to be habit forming and Acetaminophen may cause liver damage or failure. So, based on the information in your question, there is no answer. What you actually have to look at is the dosage. If you need to take one for awhile to treat pain, then you should take the one with the lowest dosage of both drugs that's still effective for you and you should take it for no longer than absolutely necessary. Learn more Percocet details here. Originally, under the name brands, the dosages were different with lower amou... ...

Watson 825 Vs 824
Got a medicine filled that was suppose to be percocet 10/650. received a bottle that said it was oxycodone / acetaminophen 10/650. The bottle was filled with watson 824 and watson 825. What is the diffrence between the 2 . And I dont understand why they did not tell me it was diffrent. ## Oxycodone with Acetaminophen is just a generic for Percocet, those are the active ingredients that it contains. The issue here is that you actually received 2 different dosages. The tablet with the WATSON 825 marking is the correct one in the 10/650 dosage, however the tablet with the WATSON 824 is only a 7.5/500 dosage. Learn more Percocet details here. Thus, it seems an error was made and you should contact the pharmacy. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it does have the potential to be habit forming ... ...

Ms Contin vs Opana
In my opinion Opana (OXYMORPHONE), is a much better drug than MSCONTIN. It works much more efficiently and is much, much stronger than MSCONTIN. I live with chronic pain MSCONTIN does nothing for it. My mother who is 88 said she rather take percocett. She had double knee replacement yrs ago which resulted in a failed surgery, I have a collaspe lumbar, so I do know what I'm talking about when it comes to pain medication. They should take mscontin out of the gold standard part, put it with the silver. ## Both the Oxymorphone in the Opana and the Oxycodone in the Percocet are known to be stronger and more potent than Morphine, so it makes sense that they may help some people more than Morphine does. However, what works well for any given person can differ, so that does have to be taken... ...

roxi vs oxycontin
I take 160mill of oxycotin 2 times a day and roxi 30 mill every 3 hours for breakthrough pain. What is the difference in the meds? Also I have the generic oxycontin, 80 mill is it different than the brand name? I ask because they dont seem to effect me like the oxys I recived in the hosbital. The generic pill is lite green and oval is this the same ? ## Does the so called generic oxycontin say oc on one side and 80 on the other? The name brand are lite green with those letters and numbers. The generic form should work just the same. Perhaps you are just working up a tolerance to them. Roxi's are oxycodone just like the oxycontin is; however, the oxcycontin are time-released over an 8 or 12 hour period, (depending on what you are on.) The roxicet is the same as percocet. I dont know ... ...
