The FDA warns that these medications carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation.

I just returned from the emergency room for a fall i took through the ceiling, and landed on a staircase about 12 foot fall. Anyway they gave me a shot of dilada 2 mg and another several hrs 1 mg the 1 mg had no effect so they gave me 1 more mg. I just returned home with my prescription for oxycocone 5 325. will 1 pill be equilavent to the shot? i dont want to take too much but without the pain relief my stomach and back muscles constrict so bad i cant get a good breath and I dont want to go thru that again while I wait for the pill to take effect. ## The 5mgs in the tablet stands for the amount of Oxycodone and the 325mgs is the amount of Acetaminophen. Oxycodone is a very strong narcotic pain reliever, so taking more than recommended could be very dangerous. ...

Oxycodone 350mg compare Hydocone 5mg
1 Reply RSS
Compare Oxycodone 350 mg to Hydocone 5mg ## The Oxycodone is slightly stronger than the Hydrocodone, so for each 5mgs of Hydrocodone, you would only need 3.33mgs of the Oxycodone. Thus, if you wanted to know how much of the Hydrocodone would be equal to a 350mg dose of Oxycodone, the answer is 525mgs. These are both narcotic pain medications, so the side effect profiles are similar and may include: nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and dry mouth. Learn more: Is there anything else I can help with? ...

5 mg of Opana is approximately equal to 85 mg of oxycodone... ## Hello, LBrown! How are you? I'm sorry, but that is not correct. Opana is actually only twice as strong as Oxycodone, so 5mgs of Opana would be equal to 10mgs of Oxycodone. The FDA classifies these medications as narcotic analgesics, so they carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects such as nausea, dizziness, constipation, dry mouth and drowsiness. Is there anything I can help with? ...

8 Replies RSS
i'm on ocycontin 60mg 4xs daily my break through pain med is either hydrocodone 10-650 or oxycodone w acetaminophen 5-325 which is more effective for pain relief i have to chose one ## At that narcotic dosage, 10mgs of Hydrocodone, versus 5mgs of Oxycodone, they are roughly equivalent. The only way to see which one may be more effective for you is to actually try one of them and see how it works. The Hydrocodone option does have more Acetaminophen in it. so you may also want to base your decision on how concerned you are about that, since it can cause some stomach problems. They both have the same side effect profile, since they are both narcotics, and this may include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and stomach irritation. Are there any other comments or questions? ## my doctor swit... ...

oxycodone or oxymorphone
1 Reply RSS
Dilaudid is superior to Percocet ## Hello, Kim! How are you? It might not be superior for everyone, it really depends on the individual. However, efficacy wise, Oxymorphone is twice as strong as Oxycodone, though this doesn't take into account medications such as Percocet that also contain Acetaminophen. So, you'd only need 2.5mgs of Oxymorphone to equal each 5mgs of Oxycodone. Dilaudid, which contains the active ingredient Hydromorphone is even a tad stronger than that, because you only need 1.88mgs of it to equal each 5mgs of Oxycodone, once again, this doesn't take the Acetaminophen in Percocet into consideration. 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 const... ...

I find it ridiculous that sooo many people are messing around with schedule II narcotics yet have no clue to the potency, side effects, drug interactions, etc.. are you people not adults? Oxy is indeed a good 1.5% stronger than morphine and not at all subtle like morphine.. Most doses of Oxy that are between 15-30 mg are IR's not ER (extended release like most morphine)...

So why is oxycodone ever prescribed...
1 Reply RSS
...if the acetaminophen in Percocet enhances its action? I just had surgery for bone spurs and was given oxy, 5mgs. For some reason I thought that oxy would be stronger--I think I heard it somewhere--but now that just seems wrong. For that matter, why prescribe Percocet, given the liver implications, and instead just give people oxy and tell them they may carefully and occasionally supplement it with NSAIDS? ## Hello, Tristan! How are you? Yes, the Acetaminophen potentiates the action of the Oxycodone, for some people. It doesn't work for everyone. Oxycodone by itself works better for some people and, if you look at the FDA information on it, you'll see that it is also available in higher doses that are in different formations, including a time released one for better pain contr... ...

Oxycodone Vs Fentanyl Withdrawals
69 Replies RSS
I have just switched from oxycodone to fentanyl patches. I will be withdrawing from them following sugery. any suggestions as to which is easier to withdraw from? Thanks!!! ## Well, the Fentanyl is actually much stronger than the Oxycodone, a 0.025mg dosage of it is equal to 5mgs of Oxycodone, so it is going to be the harder one to withdraw from, if it is stopped abruptly. However, the other fact of relevance is how long you will be using it. If it is only for a short period of time, them the withdrawals may not be too rough, though they may still be annoying. Has your doctor provided you with any advice? ## i have been on fentanyl for a long time. prior to this was on a bunch of oxycodone. to give you an idea i was taking anywhere to 3 or 4 of the 80s per day and 5 or 6 of the Roxi 30s... ...

YES!,I WANTED TO KNOW,THE PILLS R SMALLER THEN THEOXYCODONE/APAP5-325MG,THAT I USUALLY TAKE,IS THAT MEAN THAT IT WONT BE STRONG ENOUGH TO TAKE CARE OF MY PAIN SINCE ITS SMALL? ## The difference between them is that this one doesn't contain the added the Acetaminophen, which helps the Oxycodone work better, the one marked K18 only contains 5mgs of Oxycodone. It may help with your pain, but without the Acetaminophen it may not work as well for you, the only way to find out is to try it. And the size of pill really has nothing to do with what's in it or how well it will work. Manufacturers use many fillers and binders in their pills, so some are much larger than they have be, without containing any more active ingredients.

is oxycodone 5mg the same as a percocet 10mg ?
2 Replies RSS
Can someone please tell me if one of the 5mg oxycodones without Tylenol is equal to a percocet 10mg? Is it stronger or weaker and would it only take one to equal the equivalent of a perk 10 or 2 of the oxycodone 5mg ## Hi Julie, To answer your question, 5mgs of Oxycodone quite simply does NOT equate to 10mgs of Oxycodone + 325mgs of Tylenol found in Percocet. Usually when people abbreviate the term "perk 10" this means that it contains 10mgs of Oxycodone and nothing less. So even without the Tylenol it would still be stronger than 5mgs of the same substance. I hope this makes sense! ## Simple math here....5<10 same active ingredient. ...

I am currently taking OXYCODONE CAP 5MG and I will soon run out of these cap. I have plenty of Hydro Apap Tab 5 325 mg tablets. Can I take these instead to use them up. Then request a prescription for the OXYCODONE CAP 5MG ## The Hydrocodone isn't quite as strong as the Oxycodone, so you might not get the same amount of relief from it, though the Acetaminophen in it may help a little, with that. To be specific, the tablet you mentioned contains 5mgs of the Hydrocodone and 325mgs of the Acetaminophen. Since it still contains a narcotic, the side effects are about the same as what you are used to with the Oxycodone and can include: nausea, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

2 Replies RSS
is one 15mg morphime IR stronger than two 10mg 325 oxycodone tablets ? ## No, one 15mg Morphine would be almost equivalent to one 10/325 Percocet and the reason I say almost is due to the Acetaminophen in the Percocet making it work better, so it's like having a dose of the Oxycodone that's a few more milligrams. You can learn more Morphine details here and you can learn more Percocet details here. The conversion is actually 1mg of Oxycodone to 1.5mgs of Morphine. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Not sure about strength as it is so hotly debated but for me attempting to change to morphine 15 mg ir from oxycodone 10/325 was nothing short of hell after 6 days of puking and feeling like I lived in the bathroom , even when breaking it into quarters my Dr. Switched me back ... ...
