Oxycodone vs roxicodone

Common Questions and Answers about Oxycodone vs roxicodone


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.
441382 tn?1452814169 Right now I am taking 15mg Roxicodone, 2 tablets every 4 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.
Avatar m tn the feeling of being trapped. 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?
Avatar f tn oxycontin is a brand name, means oxycodone continuous release (i think). oxycontin is usually higer mg of the oxycodone because it has the extended release which is why addicts usually crush & snort or chew them to bypass that. it is true that percocet has more apap than the oxycontin or roxicodone but as far as the main ingredient 6 perc 5's are the same as a roxi 30 or 4 perc 10's are the same as an oxy 40.
Avatar f tn Stronger forms that are not time released are Roxicodone or Roxicet.. Roxicodone is pretty much a immediate or instant release of Oxycontin and it also like Oxycontin does not contain acetiminaphin or ibuprophen..
Avatar f tn , 10 mg of morphine equals 16 mg of hydrocodone). Oxycodone (contained in percocet, roxicodone, oxycontin) is about 2 times the strength of morphine (i.e., 10 mg of morphine equals 5 mg of oxycodone). Therefore, 5 mg of oxycodone is about 16 mg of hydrocodone so oxycodone is about 3 times stronger than hydrocodone. However, geminigirl is right in that everyone is different. I have read that some say hydrocodone works better for their pain than percocet and viceversa.
Avatar m tn Hello, I am tapering off of a 2 year habit that got up to 9 30mg roxicodone a day. I am six months in to a slow taper and had gotten down to 3 15mg roxicodone a day. That is I am down from 270mg a day to 45 mg a day. I have decided to switch to Hydrocodone (this was what I was originally prescribed 5 years ago). Here is my problem. I cannot get through the day on 45 mg of Hydro quiet yet. I feel like I have back slid but the hydro just feels useless to withdrawal compared to the roxi.
175688 tn?1297560247 OXYCONTIN is a stronger CONTROLLED/TIMED release medication... percocet is IMMEDIATE release oxycodone, with tylenol in it, ROXICODONE is the BRAND name of OXYCODONE.... but it is VERY different from OXYCONTIN!!! VERY!!! I am not trying to be rude, or to come across as so....but its important that one knows that very BIG difference....as they have very different effects!!! I am in a pain management program and i take OXYCODONE HCL(immediate release...) and do NOT take OXYCONTIN....
Avatar n tn what is oxycodone HCL CR 10 MG. I here alot about snoting them for a high instead of swallowing them for the pain.I have tried snorting them but did not feel anything.So whats up.
Avatar n tn It's an old, cheap, and very effective long-acting pain medication. You really can't compare methadone vs. oxycodone on a mg-to-mg basis because methadone is a more potent medication. While any medication can be abused, the long-acting meds aren't as sought after by addicts as the short-acting meds like roxicodone. That's another plus that doctors consider when they offer opiate therapy. Any time you change medications you can expect problems.
Avatar n tn Do you know the difference between taking 420mg of oxycodone vs 70mg- in one day? So you are saying that you don't think that 70mgs of oxycodone is low from someone that was on more than 4 times that much? I am confused, so if you could clarify i would greatly appreciate it. Are you someone who has experienced this-or recovered?
1064524 tn?1257203355 to reiterate: Roxicodone is oxycodone WITHOUT apap it comes in 5mg 15mg & 30mg
Avatar f tn Well, here's how it went down. Let me start by saying I broke down in the doctor's office when I started telling him about all the stress I'm going through. We had to get a loan against my Martin guitar and my husband's Tag watch just to get to the appt. I went in and told the doctor "I can't afford this medication and I can't afford to drive all over town looking for it either." His solution? "Percoset 10s work about 80-90% as well as Roxycodone 30s and they last longer.
Avatar m tn 1st he shouldnt be saying I drink it with orange juice when it says NOT FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION.I am a mom of a3yr old BUT I get no matter how old they r always going to be a child to mom.Please let us know his age&Im assuming he lives with u.Whether he is a minor or not if he is under ur roof so"he blew a gasket" well WHO CARES how he reacted I hope u dnt.He has something that sounds like he is getting high on n ur home.
Avatar n tn Steve, Awhile ago I posted a question to you concerning my fluctuating pain levels cause me to have withdrawal symptoms several times a month. Your reply was to have my oxycodone switched to a longer lasting pain med to help with the withdrawal symptoms. My next appointment is comming up and I was wondering what pain meds are long acting so I can suggest some to my pain specialist.
Avatar n tn I then was asking for a higher dose. I went from lortab, to percocet, to Roxicodone. The longer you take these pills the harder they will be to get off. Anyway when you take six pills you are taking anywhere from 1900 to 3000mg of tylenol, according to the pills you have. This can lead to major liver problems over time. I was taking 120 mg of Roxi a day. By the way roxi is just oxycodone without tylenol.
Avatar n tn In other words, what would be considered the Final step? Methadone, High doses of Hydrocodone, Oxycodone? Fentanyl patch? ANyhow, that's all I have for now.... So have a great day, people!
Avatar f tn Percocet, W/O Roxicodone) or Oxycontin which are both used to treat SEVERE-CHRONIC pain fall under the catagory... And just a little over a year or two ago Hydrocode also has to have a brand new written prescription to be filled... No calling it in or faxing it in even with a doctor signing and or calling it in. So now, any pain medication prescribed has to be delivered by hand, on a hard copy(paper copy with multiple watermarks or traits which show its real and then can be filled...
Avatar f tn These kids were carrying bottles 100 lot at a time out the back door of oxycodone, Roxicodone oxycotin, etc.... by the time I figured it out; it had been going on for over two years. This is a small town with a graduating class of 250-270 Seniors each year. The majority of these kids are taking these pill to get high. When my son actually came to me and admitted he had been snorting 3 - oxy 80's a day!!! I thought that would kill you.
Avatar n tn That is something many of us have experienced first hand, and is one of the many wonderful(NOT) side effects of oxycodone, and opiates in general. Hell i remember if someone even looked at me funny at the grocery store, i was ready to clobber them; and truth is they were probably just going to say hi. As far as other side effects, well of course there is the liver which you mentioned and the kidneys.
Avatar n tn The difference between Contolled Vs. non-controlled substances is: It is illegal to possess a controlled substance if you don't have a prescription for it... Not Illegal to possess a non-controlled substance. I think that is all, but if you're out there, MrMichael, anything I forgot?
Avatar n tn Well, that is the generic name for Vicodin, and better yet the same generic for Lortab, Lorcet, Norco, Zydone, Margesic H, Anexsia, Hydrocet, Bancap HC, Duocet, Panacet, Stagesic, and many more! Oxycontin, better known as Roxicodone or Percolone contains oxycodone hydrochloride, whereas the others metioned above contain acetaminophen and hydrocodone.
