Bill Says:

I have been taking Hydrocodone 10/325 for chronic pain, 1 pill every 6 hours. My Dr. just prescribed Oxycodone 5/325 with up to 2 pills every 6 hours. Which is stronger?

The oxy is stronger but who knows your body may b used 2 the vicoden. But if he is allowing u 2 take 2 @ a time it would b better if he would just give u the percocet 10/325 as it would b as effective with 1/2 the amount of aspirin. Try it out n post your feedback.

Scott is correct, the Oxycodone is actually stronger than the Hydrocodone.

To equal 10mgs of the Hydrocodone, you only need 6.67mgs of the Oxycodone, so I'd advise caution when you first take them, you probably shouldn't take 2 of them, until you try one and see how well it works for you.


Are there any questions or comments?

Doctors get more commission for prescribing Hydrocodene, they seem to be same power to me and I have used them a lot.

I had major back surgery back in 2006 and have been taking Hydrocodone 10/325 for 8 yrs and it stopped working for me all of a sudden, I read the label and they changed the manufactor of the hydrocodone to watson so I figured that was it but according to the pharmacy and Doctor it shouldnt have mattered but watson went from a yellow pill that worked for me to a white pill and I started hurting, the pharmacy told me they pulled the yellow pill off the shelf.So the Doctor prescrbed me oxycodone 5/325 and that pill makes me groggy and puts me in a bad mood and aggravated at the world unlike the yellow hydrocodone that I took so whats the advice from anyone about what should I take ????

Take a regular Tylenol with it. They've removed as much Tylenol, I take 10/325 and add a 500 mg Tylenol and I've been happy with the pain killer effects. I promise, it works. But I'm actually on this thread to see what my doctor may do next after hydrocodone 10/325 for about 6 yard now and have been in pain level 8 for a little while. Good luck.

Jamie Says:

They both have the same amount of aspirin. The number "325" represents the amount of aspirin, were as the "5" and "10" represent how much medication (hydro or oxy) is in the pill. So 10 is more medication than 5, and the amount of aspirin never changes. Recently it was discovered that once you reach 325 aspirin, it caps out in your body, meaning even if you took 600 aspirin it would have the same affect as 325. So to prevent unessessary liver damage, drugs no longer have more than 325 aspirin.

Tell your Dr to write ORIGINAL ONLY NON GENERIC on the script and you'll get the original Vicodin, Norco, Lortab instead of the often weaker generic counterpart. Good luck! Ben

Ben Says:

Have you tried stacking 800mgs of Ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) with the Hydrocodone?? Try that take 4 OTC Ibuprofen with the Vicodin see how that works for you, the Motrin it's an antiinflammatory medication and the hydro/APAP will provide analgesia. Just don't over do it APAP/Acetaminophen (Tylenol) will shred your liver NEVER take more than 1200 mgs at once and the Ibuprofen will destroy your stomach so never more than 1000mgs at once and only when in real pain and to keep from taking Oxy which is a better medication but it makes some people drowsy you could also try cutting it in half, or tell your Dr. If he can put you on a Fentanyl patch regiment 1every 72hrs for continuous pain relief and Oxy for breakthrough pain. Good Luck!

I have taken the yellow norco (Watson) as well and have felt a dramatic difference switching to the white pills. Meijer pharmacy is the only place I can find that still carry the yellow (watson pill). I have also had back surgeries but just recently switched to taking ms cotin and also percocet for the back through pain.

can't take aspirin because of my stomach there's nothing that will change this pain it will be there forever and get worse as I get older. Will need to do things as I get older without the pain in order to not just sit in the chair and stare at the TV which is not what I want to do

Do not take more than 3,000mg of Tylenol per day because it may be fatal.

It's important to know that it is not aspirin. It is acetaminophen aka Tylenol. Which will destroy your liver.

I've had bad pain caused by arthritis and pustular psoriasis and always preferred taking hydrocodone 10 during the day bc they don't make me sleepy or groggy and it keeps the pain controlled. I've also taking oxicodone 10 and they do also keep help control the pain, but they tend to make me sleepy and I can't work as well during the day bc I feel tired and loopy. But everyone responds differently to meds so take what works best for you and helps you get through the day. Good luck!

Hydocodone has tylenol, not aspirin . The tylenol is extremely damaging to your liver.
