Difference between percocet and norco

Common Questions and Answers about Difference between percocet and norco


Avatar n tn Norco and Lortab and Vicodin are the same drug, different names. They can come in 5 mg, 7.5 mgs and 10 mgs. The rash can mean you are sensitive to the hydrocodone, most likely. Try Tylenol #3. You'd need 2 to get the same pain relief as a 7.5 Norco. BTW, Percocet IS oxycodone. Just has Tylenol in it. And that stuff makes me itch so bad. Must be morphine based. I can't have morphine either. Try the Tylenol #3. Old stuff, but it does work. Any narcotic can make you sick to your stomach.
Avatar m tn and am just now coming off the pain pills and am going nuts. I'm sure its the percocet but am alittle confused about the difference between Percocet and the oxycontin as they both have said....OXYCODONE... on the label is the oxy just a time release percocet?
Avatar n tn For pain relied I think Oxycodon in Percocet is 1.5 time as effertive as Hydrocodon. so 1 and a half Norco 10/325's = 1 10/325 Percocet for pain relief. I think Codein is 30mg = 10mg of percocet for pain relief. Don't quote me as I am going from memory but you get the idea and the ball park ratio.
Avatar n tn I am going to pharmacy school. Percocet and Norco are VERY different. Percocet- Is a schedule II drug and is in the same class as morphine, adderall, cocaine, and fentnyl. It is kept locked up in retail pharmacies and is only allowed to be unlocked by a pharmacist. Percocet is oxycodone and acetominipen (tylonol).
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn there is a pretty big difference between the two. Percocet (oxycodone) is a schedule II narcotic, that requires a written rx w/ no refills by law and is closely monitored (i believe it is the same thing as oxycotin less the tylenol) vicodin (hydrocodone) is a schedule III narcotic and can be called or faxed in by a doctor and can have refills on it. Darvocet is a lower narcotic than both of these, though i'm not sure what schedule it is. they dont work well for me personally for pain.
Avatar m tn I went cold turkey from 70mg/day oxycontin and 40mg/day percocet, and i'm 60 years old and on my 51st clean day... so no, you won't die... if you can get some meds from your doctor to help u thru the first few days, like something to settle your stomach, and anti-anxiety, it will help you greatly... this forum is also a great place for support...
1794671 tn?1338798991 My dr was not in agreeance, she throught I should stay on the morphine because of withdrawals but I convinced her that if they got to any point where I was uncomfortable I would take it but I was unable to persevere and just take my norco. Well, My pain got out of control and I was taking 12 norco a day, pretty much the MAX dose for tylenol and since I have been on it for 4 years I didnt suffer any hepatotoxicity.
450052 tn?1207663874 Hello to everyone !! I have a question. What is the difference of Norco and Percocet ? 10/325 milligrams... Are Norcos stronger >> Why do they make you feel better then the percs? and are the Gen. better then the Brand ??? Just confused about all this junk the doc gave me.
Avatar f tn Opioid pain medications combined with acetaminophen ha e changed recently -- these medications, like Vicodin and Norco, Percocet, and others now have 50% less acetaminophen than they once contained. Still, anyone requiring large amounts of opioid pain releiver should be prescribed medications w/o acetaminophen (called paracetamol in Europe).
Avatar f tn Roxicodone and Percocet have the same narcotic - oxycodone. The difference between the Roxi and Perc is the Tylenol, which is found in the Percocet. Will the Perc work better? That depends on the person, honestly. They say coupling Tylenol with Oxy (or Hydrocodone) increases the effectiveness of the narcotic. Pharmacologically, I'm sure there is a valid reason to couple the two, but the reality is that i probably depends on the person using them. So your Perc 7.5/325 is 7.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn I started using a little again here and there....Percocet first and norco this last week. I have a few pills left and I'm done. I'm trying to make it through work this week with the few norco 5 mg have left but am in a constant state if withdrawal. I'm so upset that I am in this position again and trying to ready myself for the jump this weekend while already in a pretty bad state from a rapid decrease in dosage (I wouldn't even call it a taper).
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn i almost just want to schedule an appt with my PMD and say let;s quit right now and lets just focus on Norco and when my insurance kicks back in, we will do more steroid shots between the disks, under light sedation. i know, PMD would love to have me off the fent ASAP cuz he was so mad when I was referred by my GP and he had placed me on the fent patch.
484378 tn?1209909492 its not as easy as everyone thinks with sub, its a lot of work... and i can attest to the difference between sub and meth...no way are they similar...halflife only... so regardless, i DO see your point... have a great day!
Avatar m tn That is the difference between short-acting (immediate release) meds and long-acting (time release) meds. Generally speaking, the more potent opiates are prescribed in long-acting formulations and also don't contain the tylenol that is mixed with the short-acting meds. Take over 4 grams of tylenol a day and over a long enough period, you can kiss your liver goodbye.
179856 tn?1333550962 ’ 25 But Abraham said, ‘Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things; but now he is comforted and you are tormented. 26 And besides all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed, so that those who want to pass from here to you cannot, nor can those from there pass to us.
960021 tn?1270666282 A little over two weeks ago, I made yet another call to my PCP and told him I felt as though I had a problem with the pills, and that's when he brushed me under the rug and cut me off completely from the Percocet and told me to go elsewhere to get help. That's when I googled Percocet withdrawls and found this forum; And even after 14 days I am still thanking God that I found this site, it's members and my new friends.
Avatar m tn After I kick this I want to quit smoking next. One thing at a time!!! I don't know how I am able to keep them in the house without taking any. Honestly I almost did on Saturday...all I thought about was taking one. The reality for me was this---121 pills will last me maybe 7 days. Do I want that? When I woke up Sunday I felt great and was glad I didn't take any. I fought the urge. There was a time about a week ago that I didn't think I could go even 7 hours. 7 days is huge for me!!!
Avatar n tn 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..???
955456 tn?1316230779 5 hours is to long for your 1/2 pill-heck cut the pill into 1/4's and only wait 1 hour and 15 minutes between quarters....whatever it takes. Don't get to focuses on waiting for the pill...that just feeds you addiction (gotta get a pill, gotta have that pill etc). it's simply a way to keep a low, constant amount in your system. I vote you do the 1 at 7 am then 2.
9998412 tn?1407450397 Many seem to advocate tapering and that is a real possibility for me. I have about 100 Norco right now but I don't know what a good tapering schedule would be. I am consistently taking 4 pills a day and sometimes that goes to 6 but mostly it is 4. Can someone possibly recommend a tapering schedule and any other advice?
Avatar m tn I'm currently the best that I have been in five years and am down to one 30mg Roxicodone (one in morning and one at night) and three 10mg Norco. I am on disability so I have the ability to limit activity and am trying to get as low as possible and as close to the ideal number of zero narcotics as possible. My pain in the shoulder is influenced by anxiety. How do you differentiate real pain from the narcotic withdrawl?
211940 tn?1267884866 Since then the pain is in my shoulder, collar bone, mid arm (between the shoulder and elbow), elbow and wrist. My elbow is now very sore after typing or writing if it's not well supported on a desk. Although it doesn't hurt to the touch. My range of motion has decreased and I'm losing strength as well as the same symptoms are beginning in my R arm now. I've had an xray which showed nothing. Went to PT but wasn't getting better.
Avatar n tn She is going to be switched off of methadone and norco soon by her pain doctor - he is suggesting oxymorphone in place of methadone and percocet in place of norco. I hope and pray that I dont see abuse with oxymorphone and percocet like I did with oxy and norco. By the way, I do hang on to her norcos and dispense them to her - she does go overboard in the first week (she will take 12 to 15 per day instead of 7 which she is prescribed), and then is forced to cut down until refill.
1684282 tn?1505701570 I am becoming somewhat frustrated with the way a lot of my colleagues practice medicine. Disenchanted, angry would be the other words that could be used. We all get ostensibly that same training and all of us are supposedly in it to help our patients. So, how come have I been getting so many letters lately on my addiction forum from desperate people unable to quit taking the tramadol pills that their own kind doctors have so freely prescribed for them?
Avatar f tn 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.
