Has Anyone Noticed Roxicodone Is Weaker Than Oxycodone?


Every time I have to go in the hospital (ANY HOSPITAL) I'm given roxicodone 20mg ( one 15 mg and one 5mg). At home I take a 20 20mg oxycodone. I swear the roxi's are much weaker than the oxy's I take at home. Anyone else notice this? I also take oxycontin 20mg and they always give that to me. I understand that roxy's are the generic and oxy's are brand. Why do I feel the difference, roxy's being much weaker to the point of withdraw...

Roxicodone is the name brand for the regular release formulation of Oxycodone, Oxycontin is the brand name for the time released formulation. Thus, anything under just Oxycodone is the generic.

The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth.

What does your prescription label say?

It says oxycodone hcl 20mg. I'm not confused about what I take, been taking them for years now (cancer). My question was does or can anyone notice a difference from oxy's to roxy's. As my post says, I take oxy's 20 mg at home but when I go into ANY hospital they always use roxy's and I can tell a huge difference in pain level. I still get the oxycontin 20 mg long lasting that I take at home it's just the instant release that is different. In the hospital I get 1 15 mg roxy and 1 5 mg roxy and I swear by the time I get home from a 3-4 day stay at the hospital, I feel like I'm going into withdrawal. I see the packet that the roxy's come out of that plainly says roxicodone.
