Percocet vs tylenol 4

Common Questions and Answers about Percocet vs tylenol 4

percocet

kind of like there is "4'>tylenol" the brand name of "acetaminophen"... you can buy "4'>tylenol" with different strengths of acetaminophen in it... in this case the "oxycodone" is the acetaminophen... anyhow, before i confuse myself or anyone else anymore i will leave you with that~ lol!!
I don't even think their part of the same family, other than the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>tylenol</span>. Anyway, I've been taking mostly the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>percocet</span> to save the Lorcet but I also noticed to feel some acheiness & like I was gonna jump outta my skin. Out of curiosity I haven't taken a Lorcet since 3:30 p.m yesterday & around 4:00 today I really started feeling pretty yuck, but instead of taking the Lorcet, I tried the 4'>percocet again instead. I felt ALOT better 30 mins. later.
Answer: 10 years Question: Was it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>percocet</span>? Answer: Originally vicodin and then <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>tylenol</span>/codeine Question: Did you just wake up one day and say, ''THAT'S IT!?" Answer: Yes, in the middle of my taper I just stopped taking pills. Question: Do you know if there is some type of out patient program that works maybe faster? Answer: I think this varies by your area. My HMO wouldn't take me. I think this Forum is better than any program I could have attended.
There is a BIG difference in oxycontin 4'>vs oxycodone. The difference is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>percocet</span> is oxycodone(generic name) mixed with Acetomenophen (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>tylenol</span>) and bunch of other buffers that account for 20% of the drug. So its weaker and less potential for geting totally hooked on it... Oxycontin is Extended release oxycodone but PURE OPIATE. If she doesn't have to i say don't go that route right away because there is no way back to percoscet from OXY. But i am not her doctor. so...
oxys are the worst to become addicted to bc it is the closest to a form of sterilized heroin. whereas <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>percocet</span> and vicodins are pain killers/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>tylenol</span> (although 15 mg percs and up are closer to being oxys then their own family of percs because just like oxys they contain no aspirin and is basically the same thing as oxycotin, just a lower dosage. 5 & 10 mg oxys are (at least where im from) pretty rare, anyone who takes them takes 40 mg to 80 mg and u can get up to a dollar a mg.
I have been on 4'>percocet (10 mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span> times per day, 1 pill every <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span> hours) for about <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span> months, before that 3 10mg pills per day. My dr. just switched me to Morphine Sulfate ER 30 MG, 2 tablets per day (one every 12 hours). I'm always nervous when I switch or increase pain meds. I start these new meds tomorrow...can anyone tell me what to expect with regard to how this new medicine may affect me 4'>vs. the 4'>percocets I've been taking?
Just want to know what is stronger Norco (10mg hydrocodone/325 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>tylenol</span> or 10mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>percocet</span> (10mg oxycodone/325mg 4'>tylenol?) Seems equal unless one narcotic is stronger than the other.
Oxycodone is the same drug that is in both oxycontin and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>percocet</span>///cet stands for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>tylenol</span>..percs are fast acting and do not last long...oxycontin is time released so when u chew them u r getting a bunch at one and they hit u fast/but r gone fast with snortin or chewing..causing humongous doses after a while...typically chewing or snorting an 80 mg oxy due to braking the time release coating only lasts an hour or so..hence use goe way up as when u crash off of this quick high u crash hard..
I had my lumbar steroid injection, and the pain got worse, so my Dr prescribed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>tylenol</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>. I haven't taken the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>percocet</span> in over a day now, as it has scared me. I took the 4'>tylenol 4 only twice yesterday. Last night however, I woke up drenched in cold sweat. Is this from stopping the 4'>percocet? My bowel movements have even changed color to a lighter shade, and that's what scared me too. I am trying to get off these myself, and want to know what I am going to end up going through.
I was married to his father, and it turned out he was using me for his green card. When I had my son, the performed a C-section. I was given <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>percocet</span> for this procedure. Long story short, when I took these percs, the pain was GONE and I didn't dwell on my son's father day and night. After my prescription ran out (it lasted about 2 days), and the dr wouldn't refill, I stopped taking them. Then 7 weeks later, when I got a job, someone was selling them at the job.
Can someone please tell me the difference between oxycodone, ie <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>percocet</span> and hydrocodone, ie loratab? Is one "better" for you....or "safer" to use? What about addictive....is one less addictive than the other? Thanks a ton for all the support....I have decided to taper and at 20 mg a week should be done in 3 weeks.....wish me luck!!
After a couple of months what the doc Rx'ed was not enough, so I got more elsewhere. Was up to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>-6 at a time, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>-6 times a day, something like 30/day. this went on for over 2 years. I quit a month before my surgery, fusion of c5, c6, c7. Darvocet are very addicting, just not as compelling as hydrocodone, but addictive nonetheless.
They don't give me the same high as HC or Vicodin, but I have heard they are still addictive. Any advice?
While we were waiting for MRI results and the wait to see a surgeon, I was put on Oxycontin 40 mg 2x each day (every 12 hours) and 2 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>percocet</span> every 6 hours for breakthrough. I ended up still needing to take 2 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>percocet</span> every <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span> to control the pain. I am 11 days out of surgery and the intense pain is gone. My surgeon sent me home with 90 4'>percocet only. The last day I had oxcontin was a week ago yesterday and I have cut my 4'>percocet down to 1 every 7 hours for the past couple of days.
but I did follow what I read what other people did here to relieve their symptoms and I picked the ones that were do-able for me. I took a hot bath at night (to relieve some pain)- took <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>tylenol</span> & Volteran, Zinc, did a little excercise, ate only food I really enjoyed (to treat myself) and tried to keep myself busy and not think of taking a pill. For the past 2 years, my life was on a pill schedule. My doctors exact words were "Stay ahead of the pain...
Right now I am taking 15mg Roxicodone, 2 tablets every <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span> hours, with 20mg/ml Eth-Oxydose (liquid oxycodone) for breakthrough pain. Due to stupidity on my part (I didn't make my next appointment while I was at the doctor's office last time, I waited and called a couple of weeks later) I couldn't get an appointment for my prescription renewal (I have to physically see him every two months, on the off-months he overnights my scrips to me) untill two days past my run-out date.
hey maybe you can tell me what would be good to take for pain I had ADR surgery 4 years ago, since then they have been switching my meds around and I want to stop taking anything with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>tylenol</span> in it. They have me on 30 mg oxycontin, twice daily, 10/325 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>percocet</span> 6 a day, soma <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span> times daily and xanax 2 mg for anxiety. What are my options for the breakthrough pain, that is what I am taking the 4'>percocet for and I need to stop with the 4'>tylenol already enough is enough.
My physical pain is now better and i've been trying to get off the oxcy's so my doctor gave me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>percocet</span> today. 10/325 3-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span> times per day. I want to be off of these completely and am seeing a different doctor on Monday but found this forum and thought I could get some help and support here. So where do I begin? Do I just stop. I tried and the sweats and no sleeping, body aches was horrible. I was thinking of tapering down slowly for a few weeks and then stopping completely.
There is nothing better, nothing more satisfying for a physician than to see a patient succeed. And when it happens over and over again, it is just so fulfilling. When a young lady who looked awful a few months ago comes into our clinic looking like a model, full of energy, vitality and health, there cannot be a better feeling for a doctor.
Then there was the dark side to them. They have their own addiction which is by far worse than the origional addiction to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>percocet</span>. When they run out the withdrawal is WEEKS instead of days. Let alone the risk of accidental overdose when mixing with alcohol or other drugs. So, I searched around and have found buprenorphine (Subutex/Suboxone). It so far seems to be a miracle drug. The withdrawal seems MUCH less severe and shorter than methadone, as well as being generally safer.
Mine's a long story with my own personal feelings and worries about addiction, though I'm just dependent <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>tylenol</span> with codeine, IMO, isn't much better than <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>tylenol</span> and ibuprofen is probably better. Find the best docs, research the meds they want you on ... go in with full knowledge. When you do get good relief, then work on building yourself up and see how it goes.
But generally, yes, avoid alcohol if you're a stage <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>tylenol</span> is probably OK but in limited quantities. Again, your liver doctor can be of help here. Most doctors don't have a problem with milk thistle as long as you're not on treatment. I personally would lay off any agressive changes in diet, vitamins, minerals, supplements, etc. until you talk to your doctor. Also stay away from any internet or new-age "cures" for hepatitis c.
If I had to choose today what to take for pain or fever (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>tylenol</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>vs</span>. Ibuprofen) I guess it would be <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>tylenol</span> since both GI docs have said I can take that. My pre-biopsy instructions in 2003 had "do not take Motrin one week prior to or after the biopsy". I was offered 4'>percocet post biopsy for pain if I needed it (which I didn't). The Demerol and Versed pretty much took care of any immediate post biopsy pain :) Hope you're doing good!
Norco is better than most because it only has 325 of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>tylenol</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>vs</span>. 500 or 650. To my knowledge hydrocodone which is the narcotic agent in Norco (I take it too) does not come in a tablet all on it's own. In order to get rid of the 4'>tylenol you have to move up to the drug oxycodone which is in drugs like 4'>percocet they make oxycodone tabs without 4'>tylenol. Question is why are you so worried about your liver? Is your liver already compromised?
The first 3 days were difficult with all the symptoms and the rebound pain was tremendous.I took 2 extrastrength <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>tylenol</span> and 800mg ibuprofen every <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span> hours for about 3 or 4 days and the pain subsided.I was able to decrease the ibuprofen,but staill take 2 extrastrength 4'>tylenol every 4 hours,max 8/day.I took all the vitamins b12 1000mcg/day under the tongue,vitd2000u/day,omegas,b complex with zinc.I also had epsom salt soaks.I now control my pain with otc pain meds.
Oxycodone IS NOT oxycontin. Oxycodone is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>percocet</span> and oxycontin is morphine and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>tylenol</span>. Morphine is much stonger than 4'>percocet regardless whether you take it orally or intrvenously. I guess it would vary on what a person's tolerance is. Some people might feel better or get a better "high" from OxyCODONE and some more on the oxyCONTIN but techinally oxyCOTIN is much stronger. Don't get me wrong, I'm not arguing with you ...
Oxycodines are a form of 4'>percocet without the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>tylenol</span> in them!! I was addicted to 4'>percocets, and if you ask me, I would prefer a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>4</span>'>percocet</span> anyday over any oxycodine!!! But that's besides the point!! Make sure that you do only take them for your back pain, and if you don't need to take that many....then don't cause they are highly addictive!!! I hope you get well!!
