Common Questions and Answers about Difference between percocet and lortab

percocet

I initially got on this board due to lung pain and was on pain meds the entire time I was in the hospital for 10 days ranging from morphine and Demerol to Lortab and Percocet. Listen, I wanted to tell you all about a pain reliever that worked for a couple of days for me. It is called Toradol. From what I have researched it is non narcotic, usually given up to 5 days, and I had it by injection.

What is the exact difference between hydrocodone/Vicodin/ loratab and oxycodone/ Percocet? I know Percocet is supposed to be lil stronger but what is the real difference? Does one work better on other pains? What's the difference btw hydro and oxy? Thanks!!
I need to get through these next couple of days of withdrawal and try to function between now and then. My fiance is aware of the problem and is very supportive. I simply cannot throw away all we've spent and all our friends and family have spent at this point. I, too, wonder how I'm not dead. I guess it was a gradual increase to the 70 or 80 a day, but I plateaued and stayed at that amount for the last 7 or 8 months I was using them. It is truly amazing and I should feel blessed.
The only difference between percocet and oxycontin is that oxycontin is oxycodone ER (which means extended release) schedule II's are the most addictive, second to Schedule I's which are analagesics (pain relievers) with no theraputic benifit. such as heroin. Norco- is basically lortab with less tylenol. Norco is hydrocodone with 325mg of tylenol and Lortab is hydrocodone with 500mg of tylenol.
I was really pouring my heart out, sharing my story of how I became addicted to Lortab and I hit some button (can't tell which one) and my entire post was gone - vanished! So now, in addition to going through my very first withdrawal from Lortab, being depressed, anxious and altogether pissed off at life in general, my creative attempts to bring some humor to my ****ed up life has ended in a technical error. Oh well. I will save all of my previous drama and get to the point.
Hi everyone; this is my first time in any kind of forum. I a female, 32 years old and my story begins 3/15/06. I twisted incorrectly (this is the day I gave notice at my employer that I was leaving to begin another job) and later that night I was unable to walk to go to the bathroom. Doctor, Chiro and ER diagnosed as sciatica....about 3 weeks. I did not for the first two and lived on percocet in order to just get out of bed.
Well, my mouth still feels raw, and am getting more little blisters, and I think it may be a reaction from the Percocet. Bob, I know you are gonna make it, and my heart will be with you. I know it won't be an easy thing to do, but you will make it because you want to. I am trying to find a site on aol, that use to be here, ask a dr or something like that. Do you know what I'm referring to? Have a great holiday yourself, if I don't hear from you before.
My husband goes back and forth between somewhat supportive, to not so supportive and jerky. Lol. So I can sympathize with that part too! Good luck and think about YOU.
i am trying to get off of lortab and my xanax right now (4 mg xanax a day, 4-6 lortab depending) but i dont know how and it is the hardest thing i have ever done. going to college makes it even harder. i sympothyze with anyone going through what i am right now...
I had hernia surgery and was prescribed percocet 10mg.. It been 2 months and have stopped them but feeling really depressed and anxious. How long will this take to subside??? I usually half the 10mg and take half at a time. at most take 5 halfs a day..???
I take the least amount possible. I did say I wanted to qiut but he advised against it so I feel like I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place.
It puts the mother's body into shock no matter what your usage is and can cause pre term labor and/or miscarriage. If you are early ini your pregnancy, be honest with your dr and allow him/her to wean you VERY slowly. The drugs that normally would be prescribed to anyone coming off of opiates (valium, xanax, klonopin etc.) are EXTREMELY UNSAFE at any time during your pregnancy. They are all a category X and can and most likely will cause defects or brain activity reduction.
In between I take soma whenever my friend wants to give me some...I took my last 3 Lortab on Sunday and yesterday I had 4 darvocet and 2 soma's... Everyone here seems so strong...And I feel like a big loser... I am not a strong person, I have such a wonderful husband and I can't believe I did this to him and my kids...I am so scared...I'm so afraid of what I'm going to feel like going through withdrawels, that is the only reason I have not stopped sooner...
Hopefully it won’t get back to him and honestly this happened to me once when I got my shoulder surgery i was getting Percocet and hydrocodone. One from my pcp and one from clinic, this clinic kept giving me Percocet for 6 months and I was getting hrdrocodeone from PCP. I didn’t know I wasn’t suppose too. And Walgreens after 6 months said we need to notify your doc that your getting prescriptions from 2 different places. I said ok. That was it.
In large doses the tylenol part can be bad for the liver. Example are Lortab, vicadin and percocet I think.
Lynn Im sorry I havent been able to answer I had a bad flu virus that lasted a couple of days. I dont knw the difference between hospital detox and doing it at home because I only did it at home. It wasnt easy but it wasnt impossible either. I was tired of giving my money away. I started to have bad feelings from the oxy ie numbness when I woke up, blood from my nose. I do have some bourbon at night after work. I try to put my energy into music etc.
The difference between Norco and Lortab is the amount of acetiminephen. The Norco only has .325 where as the Lortab has 500 of it. They BOTH have Hydrocodone NEITHER one has ANY codeine!!! It just depends on which one your Doctor orders for you. The Norco has sht MOST Hydrocodone - 10. Whereas the Lortab that you mentioned has 7.5 - Hydrocodone. Just remember the this is HYDROCODONE and NOT Codeine. :) The reason I know this is because I've been on both of these exact meds.
I know I tried 7 antidepressants to no avail after a horrible period in my life and NO HELP.....then I popped a percocet and all was right with the world.....then 5 years later I was up to oxycontin crushed and not depressed anymore.....hell, i couldn't feel anything. You could remove a kidney and I wouldn't feel it. lol......That's just it.....along with the pain, it killed the joy, the excitement of life, the little things....fishing, going to the beach.
I know about every drug, and what I find funny is, is that many people don't even realize that there is no difference between generic and brand named drugs (except in a very few minor instances from a chemical makeup standpoint). For example, I always here people talking about hydrocodone as if it were something that cannot compare to anything else.
and then I really don't know the difference between them all... I think you know what I mean... and I am also curious about strenghs... I realize that heroin is the strongest... but why is that ?? I mean couldn't a megadose of vicoden be stronger than a mini dose of heroin ???? I have never really understood all this. I realize an addict is an addict... but you know... somehow heroin is the worst...top of the list stongest. Can you make sense of this for me.
I wanted to know what the difference is between hydrocodone and like-oxycontin or oxycodone, Percocet, tramadol, is this all just types of hydrocodone? All I ever took was hydrocodone....
I am 23 now with a daughter of my own and my mom has been addicted to drugs such as lortab and xanax for a long time. She does not know how to deal effectivly with anxiety or depression either.
One is the quick pee and evaluate in the Dr's office that just shows the presence of opiates and no other substances...So it won't show the difference between Lortab or Percocet in that type. Or, it gets sent out to a lab which uses gas chromatography mass spectrometry which is extremely sensitive and will show the exact amount of anything leftover of a 10mg Percocet as if you tell them the time it was taken...
He never took but one lortab and told the doctor he didn't ever want to feel that way again.Man,you talk about balls! Well thanks for the comment,I need all I can get.Like Chezz I am struggling with my addiction and I will deal with it. Rock on!
I'd never hear of the brand-name Opana before, but I can tell you the big difference between oxy's and dilaudid ... Oxycodone -- the opioid in Percocet/dan and Oxycontin, is derived from a part of the opium moleculed called thebaine -- that's why it gives you that "lift," hardly anyone with no knowledge of these drugs would expect. Many oxy addicts take so much of the stuff, they need to take a few benzos to sleep.
