Percocet 7.5-325 Verses Norco 7.5-325

Menda Says:

My doctor gave me Percocet 7.5-325..Half a tablet twice a day, doesn't seem to be working well with my breakthrough pain. I'm also on 30mg of morphine 2x daily. Will switching over to Norco 7.5-325 2x daily help better?

According to NIH reports, the Oxycodone in Percocet is stronger than the Hydrocodone in Norco. They also warn that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation.

However, I am curious as to why they only have you taking half a tablet, twice a day? That is a very, very low dosage.

Are you on any other medications? What condition is being treated?

Thank you for your response..My doc had me on one Percocet 5/325 once a day but he said raising the quantity to 2 aday could cause problems with federal regulations...He is a pain specialist. Sometimes I'm fortunate to only need the half but when my break thru pain is at it's worse, then I half to take both halves 12 hours apart.A pharmacist said those particular pills shouldn't be cut in half because of the film that covers the pill,storage life is then reduced to 18-36 hours. This is why I ask if maybe taking Norco 750 twice a day if needed would be better.
