Oxycodone 30mg Rel Tab

Susan Says:

Hello, I was just prescribed by my pain doctor oxycodone 30 mg imm rel tab I get 90 pills every 2 weeks cause I have bulging disc in my neck C3-C6. This is my 5th different med I have taken I have been switched so many times trying to find something stronger that will relieve my pain. I have had 3 different neck procedures going on my 4th procedure in 2 weeks. Here is my question - I was told that this medication is 2x stronger then the one I was previously on which was hydrocodone 15mg rel tab however, this new medication doesn't feel stronger if anything I am getting sick off of it vomiting all the time and always sleepy on it as oppose to my previous medication which would relieve the pain but it would sometimes take 3 all at once to kick in crazy I know but true. Granted I just started this new medication 3 days ago so my body is still adjusting to it I hope it gets better. This new pill they gave me is a little tiny pill light blue tablet with a line down the middle with a K on one side of the line and a #9 on the other side of the line and on the other side its blank. The pill bottle says MFG KVK. Does anyone know if this pill is the real deal or just a placebo I was given? Thanks to all for responding.

Hello, Susan! How are you?

First, I'd like to clear up a misunderstanding, none of the medications you've been prescribed are actually immediate release. These are all regular release medications that will take 15 to 20 minutes to start working, after you take them. The only immediate release Oxycodone is a 5mg capsule and there are no immediate release Hydrocodone products available, at all.

Moving on, yes, you did receive the correct medication. The tablet with the K 9 marking contains 30mgs of Oxycodone in a regular release formulation. 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, if you were sometimes taking more of the Hydrocodone tablets and then abruptly stopped them to switch to this one, you may be experiencing some withdrawal effects and rebound pain, so it may take a little while longer for you to feel the full effects of the Oxycodone to see if it works for you.

The Oxycodone isn't quite 2 times stronger than the Hydrocodone, though. Each 5mgs of Hydrocodone is equivalent to 3.33mgs of Oxycodone.

Is there anything else I can help with?

vomit is a side effect of overdose. 15mg is very powerful and taking 3 at at time will knock you out and sleepy. Hydro is 10mg so yes the oxy if far more powerful in fact so strong you are having major side effects. You may want to cut down the time between pills and also the amount.
