My doc has been prescribing me percocet 10 mg. And now he prescribed me oxycodone 5mg. Which is stronger? The percocet 10's i have been taking for almost 2 years and i told him that they wasn't working that's when he prescribed me the oxycodone 5'mg. And they aren't working either. I am taking pain medication for surgery's . Since the oxycodone 5'mg aren't working what should i ask for. Now hydrocodone doesn't agree with me. It makes me sick.and i would prefer to stick with oxycodone. What should i ask for ?

Percocet is actually a combination medication that contains Oxycodone and Acetaminophen, because the Acetaminophen helps increase the efficacy of the Oxycodone. So, if you were taking it, there should have been two dosages listed, such a 10/325, because the second number designates the amount of Acetaminophen that it contains.

Learn more Percocet details here.

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.

But from what you've said, it seems that he's now just prescribed Oxycodone, by itself, in a lower dosage, which would also explain why it's not helping your pain.

There are higher doses available, so you could discuss it with him to see what he suggests.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Ask for 10mg Percocet. That is 10mg Oxycodone and 325mg Acetaminophen. The second number I.e. 500, 650,750,1000...etc., is ONLY TYLENOL (Acetaminophen) and hurting your liver! So hypothetically a 10/1000 is f***ing stupid if you have the option of a 10/325. Hope this helps

I have been taking Percocet 5/325 with an imprint of 512 on them for many years for my fibromyalgia pain. Recently, after I picked up my pills from the same pharmacy I have been using for over 30 years, I noticed the pills were different and do not help my pain....they are 5/325 with an imprint on them ip 203. They are horrible, they do not dissolve because they have a hard coating on them. I mentioned this to the pharmacist and he told me they do not carry the 512 anymore... Can I just go to a different pharmacy to get the 512 pills or do they not make them anymore?
