Avatar m tn 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?
Avatar f tn hydrocodone by the looks of that but u can take co-codamol and nurofen together cos thats won i am on
356518 tn?1322263642 Oxycodone is cheaper and better for you than variations of hydrocodone, b/c oxycodone does not contain any aceteminophen. Oxycodone is also a stronger opiod than hydro's. In some places you can only get oxycodone IR in 5mg tabs. However, you can get regular oxycodone in strenghts of 5,10,15,and 30 mg. They are all very reasonably priced, it's just that the strengths of 10-30mg are not IR so it will take a little bit longer to get pain relief....
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.
Avatar f tn See if he will give you 30 Mg Roxicodone which is just Oxycodone without the tylenol. they are strong and if you do need a little kicker just take one extra strength otc tylenol. as the tylenol makes the active drug more potent.
Avatar n tn I have cancer in my pelvis, taking hydrocodone and oxycodone, get my meds from the VA, they started mailing scrips thru the mail instead of picking up at VA, I have run out befor new scrip arrives, my question is can I take ultrcet til new scrip of hydrocodone arrives without adverse effects. this is just for pain, I do not drink.
Avatar m tn You are not on a very high dose of the lyrica. You might find that you can do with less or that neurontin (a similar medication) will not have the same effect. Best of luck to you. Maybe another member can offer their personal experience and share what has worked for them. I hope you will keep in touch and let us know how you are doing. We all learn from one another.
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.
Avatar f tn By taking the oxycodone, you can take either Tylenol or Advil along with it, but you can take it with, say, every OTHER dose so that you don't exceed the toxic level every day. You will end up with liver problems if you take large amounts of acetominophen and that will be more dangerous to you than larger doses of opiate. Once a person becomes opiate-tolerant, they can tolerate quite a high dose of opiates safely, it's the acetominophen that will hurt them before the opiate does.
Avatar f tn Once you get to the point that you would rather be sick for 5-10 days(depends on the person and how much/often you used then to take another pill that might make you feel good for a few hours then you will be able to do it. I'm 7 days clean and going strong. I feel so much better and it is so nice to feel normal again. It is so nice that I do not have to hide my pills or spend my hard earned money and time looking for them. Good luck!!
Avatar f tn Some like oxycodone better, some like hydrocodone better. Here's what I've heard: for short term pain (like after a root canal, surgical procedure, etc., where the doctor gives you 2 or 3 days worth of a prescription), oxycodone works well. But, for long term pain (e.g. pain lasting weeks, or chronic pain), some find that although oxycodone "hits the pain hard," it wears off quickly. And some physicians and patients find that to be a recipe for dependence and addiction.
Avatar f tn I would go with the oxycodone (percocet) over the hydrocodone (vicodin), because it's possible to get the oxycodone in it's pure form in a pill without the tylenol in it. The -cet suffix on the percocet is what denotes the acetominophen or Tylenol. In the generic form, it would give the mg strength of the pill (ie, 5/500) and then say APAP on the label.
Avatar f tn My doctor also gave me a prescription for Hydrocodone Acetaminophen to take instead of the Oxycodone for when I was ready. I tried to replace the Oxycodone with the Hydrocodone but it gave me tremendous nausea and terrible anxiety the one day I took it...I almost had a panic attack in the middle of the night and thought my husband was going to have to cal 911! Does anyone have a suggestion for the best way I can wean off the meds?
Avatar f tn Percocet also contains acetaminophen, however, you can get oxycodone alone wthout the acetaminophen in it. Oxycodone can also be obtained in a long-acting formula called Oxycontin. Since everyone is different and their pain is also different, it's impossible for anyone to say whether one is better than the other. I'd suggest talking with your doctor about pain control if you require it and let him/her suggest/prescribe what he/she thinks is most appropriate for you. Best of luck!
Avatar n tn s VERY important that you take the medication that your Doctor prescribes to you AND that you take it ONLY the way that is prescribed!! Otherwise, you will wind up in trouble. I wish you the best and hope that you will be able to find another Dr. IF you have lost one because of a Failed Urine Test. If you are THINKING of using a medication that isn't prescribed for you - then I would tell you NOT to do it!!
Avatar n tn I do take two naproxen 220 mg along with one one 10 mg oxycodone IR tablet and two 300 mg gabapentin capsules in the the AM when I wake up. Oxycodone is a little bit stronger than Vicodin. But I agree with the first poster that you need to contact your pharmacist to make sure the combo is OK for you to take as everyone is different and you may have underlying medical conditions that would make it an unsafe. choice for you.
Avatar f tn Is there something I should know here? Also both prescriptions were subsituted with Hydrocodone which contain acetaminophen. Due to my condition I am not supposed to take anything containing acetaminophen. Is there a viable subsitute that I can take?
Avatar m tn It is oxycodone with acet. or aspirin. But again, you have to be careful of how many you take at a time, as it could damage your liver if taken too many at a time, or in a day. Hope your surgery goes well and hope this helps.
Avatar m tn Can you just give me a simple answer? My Zoloft hasn't started working yet. Can the effectiveness of Zoloft become diminished by using Vicodin or Percocet? Also can you tell me where you got the idea that I have had anxiety on Zoloft?
Avatar m tn Maybe it can help you, along with the genetic test for exploring your metabolism, can help you convince your doctor to rotate your opiates. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.

Avatar m tn I'm about to have an artificial disc replacement in my neck. I've had cervical and lumbar fusion and am glad I did. (don't know why so many are afraid of surgeries). I know doctors are leery about giving pain meds to patients, as well they should be, but there are instances where it's necessary. My question is why do I get nausious when I take hydrocodone and not when I've taken oxycodone? I asked an er doctor for oxycodone instead of hydrocone and told him why.
