Difference Between Oxycodone Hcl And Oxycodone Rho

Steph Says:

I have been taking oxycodone HCL for post tonsillectomy pain. Upon refill my new bottle now says oxycodone RHO. They are both the same dosage. What is the difference?

Hello, Steph! How are you?

There is no difference, the refill just lists the abbreviation for the manufacturer on the bottle, which is Rhodes Pharma.

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.

Is there anything else I can help with?

... Be Nice.
Nobody likes to be criticized. The first person that replied to your post was only trying to help.
I'm curious though, why were you taking such a strong narcotic for such Minor pain. Orrrr maybe your "tonsillectomy" was nothing more than a HUGE excuse to acquire Drugs. I'm thinking your "Tonsil Specialist" should be investigated for his qualifications on dispersing ANY kind of Pain Pills.

Good point when I had my tonsils and adenoids removed I was given acetaminophen w/cod 15 mg. For 48 house I believe the quantity was 10 tabs that was more then I needed just to take the edge off for immediate post op pain relief............

Maybe you're just a balloon knot. People have different thresholds for pain. Why do you think there is a pain scale? Don't be a jerk because you got cut off.

Really? You need to be educated before speaking skeeter! I was given oxy's 20's for my tonsillectomy. Oxy without Tylenol. He gave 100 pills. I know of 3 others that had different Dr's give similar dosages. Don't pretend to know. Its a huge world, especially if you are not a dr then watch your mouth. Maybe you should be investigated for knowing.

Some Dr's are limited on what they can prescribe. Dentists usually only prescribe hydrocodone or T3's . They are frowned upon if given anything else.

Agreed. Drug sensitivities are the main reason for using alternatives. Having a tonsillectomy, especially for an adult results in a sore throat from hell. I was four when I had mine taken out. I still remember the sore throat. And, the ear pain that often accompanies that surgery can make a child scream in pain. Additionally, the dosage is usually titrated up not down (starting a low dose then increasing as needed). The problem with the panic of opiod use is that the people that really need pain management, and have tried all the modalities to control it, get left with the intractable pain and very little access to appropriate medications.

I can surely attest to that! I've had neck surgery, low back surgery, and 4 shoulder surgeries in which the 4th was a total replacement. I have limited use of my arm and am in pain 24/7, effects my sleep activity and social life. I couldn't get out of bed if it weren't for pain medication. I've led an active life and have given 8 years in the USAF, dancing my whole life which I contribute to being able to stay flexible and to walk. I literally should be in a wheelchair, I thank God I'm not. Ones mindset plays a factor in this thing called severe pain. I've been fighting for 20 years with it, but I am getting tired the older I get. There is definitely a difference between needing them and addiction and people who need them are paying the consequences of addicts. Sorry for the history but your comments are right on point and I just wanted to add some comments ofwhat people who really need them experience. I have good days and bad days but you can bet when I'm having a good day, I take full advantage of living life. God Bless
