Can i mix hydrocodone and oxycodone

Common Questions and Answers about Can i mix hydrocodone and oxycodone


Avatar m tn Oxycontin is pure oxycodone in a time release form while percoccet is a mix of oxycodone and another OTC pain reliever. Oxycodone is a stronger narcotic then the narcotic in vicodin which is hydrocodone. Both will cause WD. The WD from oxycodone was always much worse for me then hydrocodone but some say it's the same. What form and strength of oxy were you taking?
Avatar n tn Can I take Hydrocodone 10/325, Cyclobenzaprine 10mg, and Tramadol 50mg together safely?
Avatar f tn Please, if you know, where does exalgo fall in the mix? The last 2 wks. I dumped both the exalgo and oxycodone. I am just beginning to feel normal. I am taking hydrocodone when needed. I have had 3 major back surgeries, 2 rods, screws and Ray cage which began the whole nightmare with drop foot. I did not know what I was in for. My husband has been terrific. Well I didn't mean to ramble on, but if you can answer the in tial question I would appreciate it.
Avatar f tn My pain management doctor recently switched me to hydrocodone 10-500 due to pharmacy crack downs and I am itching like crazy and having bad nightmares and don't sleep well and grind my teeth bad. I must be having an allergic reaction? I'm not allergic to anything but this now. I'm suffering in pain cause I can't take these side effects! I was on Oxycodone 10-325 and didn't have any problems.

Avatar f tn hydrocodone by the looks of that but u can take co-codamol and nurofen together cos thats won i am on
Avatar m tn I am going to see my Dr. today and I have been perscribed hydrocodone in the past to treat chronic lumbosacral pain. How is Oxycodone 5mg compared to Hydrocodone? I take Hydrcodone 5/500 APAP. Is Oxycodone a good alternative to Hydrocodone? What are your experiences?
900459 tn?1304993259 I was actually wondering why your doctor did not try this or another ER medication before trying the patch. I am taking the Oxycontin and it has worked well for me. I also started out on hydrocodone. I believe it would be better for you as it is in a lower class than the ER versions of oxycodone and MS Contin and others in this class. Talk to your doctor about one of these drugs and save the patch for when/if you need a stronger medication than the Fentanyl.
1778305 tn?1314483931 When the doc said I needed to wait the second surgery out but they would put me on hydrocodone daily until my son came (14 weeks later) for pain I was stunned. I asked about risks and I was only told that the baby may be born addicted to the drug itself. The doctor will tell you if there is a problem talk to your ob if you are worried and maybe between the three of you you can find some sort of alternative for the pain.
590280 tn?1310087366 I told my Dr I wanted to wean off the Vicodin ES I am on, and he prescibed me 30 oxycodone??? I don't get it.
Avatar f tn are just trademarked names for the generics (hydrocodone and oxycodone)...also, those opiates can be combined with other analgesics instead of tylenol....example, "Percodan" is oxycodone with aspirin. Sorry...hope I didn't confuse you...but while the drugs are very similar, and both strong opiates, there are a lot of differences, which people do not always realize.
968560 tn?1307451498 Hi mpace6983, all I can say is I had the same problem with Tramadol and I also got insomnia from Tramadol and hydrocodone. So, I think you could try Valium but that is stronger I think. Maybe you have a cross reaction with another drug too? I know you will get a better answer on this site. Good luck and hope your pain gets better.
Avatar n tn ve been on vicodin for two months, with some oxycodone, then this month I am on oxycodone, which is deplenished and bought some as well. It is day 4 of my withdrawals and the day 2-3 were hell. Today I feel a lot better when I took the loperamide, but my question to you is: Will the use of the methadone (once a week for about 5 weeks) and my 1 fentanyl patch (50ug/hr 2 weeks ago) play a part in my withdrawals? Like I said it basically was oxy/hydrocodone.
Avatar n tn i was taking 75mg of hydrocodone daily in 5 seperate 15mg doses for about a year straight everyday. i got into oxycontins and oxycodone for awhile during the mix too. but long story short i hit rock bottom and got arrested, and immediatly cut down to 30mg a day after the arrest and quit cold turker after 3 days. im really trying to turn my life around but a lot of other personal stuff is seaming to go wrong now (some caused from my previous drug use, some not).
699217 tn?1323438700 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....
Avatar m tn ve been diagnosed with RSD and have been on Demerol, hydrocodone, oxycodone and Lyrica. After seeing what works and what doesn't, I am currently only taking the oxycodone(2-7.5 every 4-6 hrs) and Lyrica(3-75 mg a day). The side effects I'm experiencing are constipation and my libido is mia. I can deal with the constipation, but at 45 and married, the libido change has GOT to be corrected.
Avatar f tn 5 mg of hydrocodone with 200 mg of Advil. No tylenol at all, and I find it works much better for me. You can also take pepcid or zantac with your meds to help with the upset stomach.
1187071 tn?1279369698 t even tell I have taken them when they did help before, I have been on them for about 3 months. After my surgery on my mouth the LAST one I was on Percocet and I remember when I was taking them I thought wow the pain has went away that is until the meds ran out and boy was I stupid for thinking that. So I know the Percocet will help me alot with the pain.
Avatar n tn Hi! I was addicted to Oxycodone and Hydrocodone for a few years and a few weeks after I went cold turkey I had to have a root canal. I was prescribed Percocet and took them as prescribed and did not experience any withdrawal symptoms. You should be OK in my opinion.
Avatar n tn Hydrocodone is a CIII and Oxycodone is a CII... the CII is more controlled and cannot be filled in most states without a handwritten rx that is sealed.
Avatar f tn I have been taking hydrocodone and/or oxcodone on and off since 2007 which started after surgery for a partial hysterrectomy. Now I can't function without them. Whenever my supply runs out I go to friends who are taking the same meds. Why are these drugs so hard to get away from? I find myself taking them just to feel good about myself or put myself in a good mood. They do not make me sleepy so taking them at work isn't an issue.
217599 tn?1202850952 the reason i am asking is because i ran out of norco before my taper was complete and i am wondering how much i should cut down the roxicet to equal what i need to finish the taper.
Avatar f tn hydrocodone or oxycodone? I have not heard good things about oxycodone, so I would be hesitant to try it but I am curious which works better for you. I want to be on the lowest dose possible (of whichever my doctor sees fit) that is sufficient enough to do everyday activities. Is there anything you have tried that you felt works for you that I should ask my doctor about?
Avatar f tn Hi, For the last 3 years my doctor has had me on Vicodene 10-500 4 tabs a day for my bad knees. Yesterday when I saw him amd told him that somtimes I'd double up the doze in the morning to help me get jump started. After hearing that he changed my perscription now to OXYCODONE HCL 15 mg. The reasoning is that these don't use Tylenol to hurt my liver. My question is 1: will they work as good and 2: will I have Vicodene withdrawel? I've never had these before or know of anyone who has.
