Are percocet and oxycodone the same

Common Questions and Answers about Are percocet and oxycodone the same


Avatar f tn ^^ yes, oxycotin would most likley be the step up from oxycodone. It's basically the same medication but just in a more concentrated, higher dose. Depending on what pain you have, morphine may be an option.
Avatar n tn both oxycontin and percocet abuse has grown in popularity immensely in the past 10 years. its extremely drastic how fast it has arose to being a DOC for people. and the wd's are the same as other opiates of its kind like heroin or dilaudid.
Avatar n tn The maximum single dose of tylenol that can be taken safely is 1,000 mg. The oxycodone-acetaminophen that you are taking contains in each pill 5 mg of oxycodone and 325 mg of acetaminophen (aka tylenol). Make sure that you tally up the acetaminophen in each pill you take over the day and make sure that you don't exceed 1,000 mg in a single dose and 2,600 mg per day.
562343 tn?1233605524 so it is really just 20 mg of oxycodone/roxies..but same u can group the percocets and the oxy ir into one category ..i realize it is easier to quit the T3s but it would help u while u taper off the others...Or u could go CT off of all of this but it would be a humdinger ur percs/oxycodone are 5 u r taking 100 mg a day of those and 20-60 mg of the oxy IR/oxycodone as say on a day that u take 2 IRs u r averaging 140 mg of oxycodone a day...does this sound right?..
Avatar n tn I know fel mushc better about her problem, and in the meantime have learned about my own adiction problems! u are rite Opiads are bad news--stay away if possible,if you have ever been addicted to them, it will come rite back even 20 years later. Should you need something for pain there is always tylenol 3 or Davacet, even advil if you arn't in too much pain. Keep in touch and let me know how you are doing. I'm on day 5--withdraw from percocet and using Bupernex, it's a wonder drug ( the Bup).
506212 tn?1210871814 I understand about the worms in the muscle feeling and being scard and feeling that you need the meds for withdrawel symptoms and not pain, i am attempting to taper off, took a 5mg percocet at 6 am this morning before work and starting to feel the wormy muscle.
Avatar f tn Hi Jan, The reason the Percocet seem to work better than Oxycontin is the way the oxycodone is released into your body. The Oxycontin is designed to be released into your body much slower that the Percocet. So, even in you're taking the same amount of both you will feel the effects on the Percs stronger and faster...hope that helps...
Avatar n tn Oxycodone is the narcotic in both of your scripts. The former, "Oxycodone" is not the generic name of the drug.....but the drug itself. Endocet is the generic name, and has oxycodone in it as well. Oh yes, also your first Rx had 5mgs of oxycodone, whereas your last one had 7.5mgs.
Avatar m tn I looked at the bottle and did some research it appears to be habit forming and effects the brain. I dont really want to be delendent on this **** to sleep and the side effects if you stop taking it appear to be similar to Percocet . Chills, depression, sleeplessness, stomach cramps, etc. I just wanna be normal again..
Avatar m tn Alright... Here we go... First of all, you and I are just about in the same boat as far as the drug and the timeline. You say that you're on Percocet 10/325 but you don't say how many a day and so forth. How many miligrams a day are you taking. It will make a huge difference in the severity of your withdrawls and how long they last. I am on 10mg's of Oxycodone (time released) 3 times a day so it's basically oxycontin only because of the "contin" (continuous, i.e.
2110255 tn?1334192149 However, oxycodone comes in up to 30 mg tablets and the dose of percocet is bounded by the amount of tylenol within it. The maximum safe amount of tylenol that can be ingested in a single dose is 1,000 mg. Per the maximums the pharmaceutical companies published, the max prescribed dose of percocet is "up to 3 tablets (assuming 5/325 mg dose per tablet) every 4-6 hours not to exceed 12 pills in a day".
Avatar m tn Sounds like you have a great plan and you are very determined. Slow and steady wins the taper race. Once your body adjusts and your are comfortable with the decrease you can attempt another decrease. Drink lots of fluids and take some good vitamins. Be good to yourself.
Avatar n tn hi im new to this site and im in the same postion as the one you are helping addicted to oxycodone and pregnant. I was wondering how do I find fladdick?
Avatar f tn Should be a box labeled Most viewed health pages. Find the Thomas Recipe and do your best to hold on to it. Next in same presentation is the Amino Acid Protocol that I firmly advocate. Depression is pretty norm( and you if its your mistake) and if you think abut it, most valuable players get more money. Until the pills won't do for another player. Just a shylock........use those dollars to invest in lots medicines that you probably havent been using them for awhile.
Avatar n tn I have been on Percocet (10mg) since 2003, with my prescription starting out at 1-2 per day to 4 per day. I am also taking Oxycodone (20mg), 2 per day since May 2007. These were prescribed before and after I had 3 cervical surgeries, between 2003 and 2005. The neck and nerve pain in my right arm never subsided, thus the "pain relief" pills. Well, I just returned from a wonderful week at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville FL, where they were able to make a diagnosis.
Avatar n tn Hello there .... Yes, percocet and oxycodone are the same medication and both will show up on a drug screening. Take care ...
Avatar f tn I'm confused because it is the same drug minus the Tylenol. Anyone else experiencing this? Would taking a higher dose of the oxycodone (not Percocet which is oxy with acetaminophen) help me better?
Avatar f tn Although others might tell you differently, I feel that they are the same. Continue to save your money and go with the cheaper form of the drug. Please take care.
Avatar n tn D nurses/OB's/NICU staff/Perinatologists are all on the same page, there are ways to keep the baby comfortable and get her/him through the w/d as easily as possible postpartum. Is Mom going through any kind of prenatal testing or serial ultrasounds? Just to keep make sure the baby is doing ok in utero? She wouldn't be the first and certainly will not be the last to be in this situation. I hope everything works out for her and the baby!
Avatar n tn doubtful, vicoden and percoset both have APAP, and both are made from the same part of the opium...thebaine.....but it is a possibility, technically...
Avatar f tn Hi Tuck, You are so welcome. And you are right, despite the pharmacological facts of opioids, many experience paradoxical effects. You always provide such great info and support to many of us here. Your comments are always on point and appreciated. I just realized I repeated many of our suggestions. I get to typing and off I! Thanks.
Avatar n tn So I'd say if you've been 48 hours without the Percocet and if the Kadian is taking care of your pain (oops - do you even have pain?) you are fine. Just stick to only taking the Kadian.
537731 tn?1268268886 I am surprised that the pharmacist did not question why this was ordered with the percocet. But there are no physicians here nor experts and you should follow the advice of your physican after you have clarified this prescription order. Please let us know what you discover from your physician. We will look forward to your updates.
Avatar n tn All of you are so awesome for the blogs and post. I read most of these last night when I was having a hard time sleeping and I must say it really made me feel good to see that others had the same issues. I truly started to feel so lousy from the pain that I was just assuming I had an underlying issue and never knew it because of the pills. None the less its been 91 hours and counting. I went for about 1.
Avatar f tn ) I hope and pray that everything will be ok with mine. Hope to hear from you soon thanks again for ur support :) I also wanted to ask why your dr said it was too dangerous for u?
Avatar n tn Vicodin is not quite as strong as percocet and you have to make sure you dont go over the tylenol. How much tylenol is in each tablet? However it is still a narcotic and will keep you from going into w/d's.
Avatar n tn It turned out to be an ovarian cyst that stayed there through my whole pregnancy, but is fine now (4 weeks post partum). I was on percocet and darvocet for the pain and my little guy came out a healthy, happy 7lbs, 5 oz!
Avatar n tn 7.5 is the mgs of hydro and 325 is the mgs for tylenol hope this helps....
Avatar n tn they are not the same so I assume they would show up differently. Oxycodone is stronger that hydrocondone.
