I have been taking hydrocodone 10-325 for 8 or 9 years. And now my doctor wants to put me on oxycontin. I have never taken any before and he did not say what strength. What are the dosages??? Is it any better than the hydrocodone 10-325???

Hello, Tazman57! How are you?

Oxycontin is a time released formulation of Oxycodone, the medication is slowly released over a 12 hour period. It is stronger than Hydrocodone, you only need 6.67mgs of Oxycodone to equal each 10mgs of Hydrocodone.

The FDA classifies this medication as 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. It's available in varying doses starting at 10mgs and going all the way up to 160mgs.

Is there anything else I can help with?

I take hydrocone 10-325 for 7 ruputered discs in upper and lower back. Also have pinched nerve in back. My left knee is bone on bone. I take diazepam 10mg for anxiety. And Lunesta3mg. All careful watched by my doctor. If i took more hydrocodone than prescribed would hair follicle test show that?? That more was in my hair??

Re: Patty Dell (# 2)

It will not show How much you are taking BUT you should NEVER take more than prescribed. Have you considered surgery On your knees and back? I just had surgery on 3 disc in my neck and I've had knee surgery..the relief was worth the few weeks of discomfort from the surgery. I not only recommend it I would do it again if needed. Came off of 15yrs of narcotics (15mg pain pills) after neck surgery. I treat my pain with massages and natural remedies now. I hope this helps you!!

The oxycontin is stronger and if you run out the withdrawals are much worse. Also they come up differently on drug panels, because 1 is an opiate and the other is an opioid. Please do yourself a favor. Stay on the hydrocodone if possible.

Yes they are! In my opinion they are you don’t get the exact same feeling from them as you were word hydrocodone and they do last longer if you take them properly never break them or chew them or you will be. Left itching like crazy and you can actually have a little bit of an appetite and like the hydrocodone I do believe he has moved you up in the pain chain because you’ve been on them for so long and your body has been immune to it or as they say RESISTANCE to.
