I have the option to use either oxycodone or hydrocodone for a broken ankle... and after surgery. Which is the stronger of the two? I would like to take one in the evening and then the weaker of the two during the day so I can work. Thanks!

Hello, Lisa! How are you?

Oxycodone is the stronger of the two.

The FDA classifies these medication as being narcotic analgesics, so they have the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

However, since both can cause dizziness and drowsiness, please make sure you won't be driving or operating heavy machinery.

Is there anything else I can help with?

What is the difference between hydrocodone and oxycodone, both being an opioid? I have some 10-325 hydrocodone and I've had some 10-325 oxycodone.

I have 2 broken clavicle bones on my right side. I was given 2 different medications from 2 different rotating DO's (Hydrocodone m366 + Oxycodone k 18). Which is better or stronger, M366 or K 18 and how can they be used or mixed properly?

Please help. I have 7.5mg/325mg hydrocodone-acetaminophen (watson 3203) but I usually take 7.5mg/325mg oxycodone-acetaminophen. Does anyone know if they are the same or if one is less potent than the other?
