Which is stronger 10 mg/325 norco (hydrocodone) or 10 mg/325 percocet (oxycodone)? or are they the same? I looked this up on 2 different narcotic converter calculators and they each gave me a different answer (unless of course it was operator error :)
Thanks everyone. so her pain doctor is correct in saying that percocet is stronger than norco, my g/f's doctor wants to switch her from 7 of the 10mg/325 norco per day to 6 of the 10 mg/325 percocet per day.
I thought my Doctor was wrong. She told me that nor co 10 mg was stronger than percocet 5 mg. I am confused????? I use to get 240 pills of percs 5 mg. I saw a different Doctor and he gave me a script of 120 pills of nor co 10 mg/ Well, i spoke with my pain management doc and she said one nor co is the same as two 5 mg percs. Is this true???? Can someone help me with the correct answer, PLEASE!!!!!
That is a narrow minded answer. First I am allergic to nsaids, second i suffer from chronich sever pain that has me bed ridden most of the time. I am prior law enforcement and I take alot of pain pills just to servive. Yes, my body has become dependant on opiate pain killers but that doesnt make me a junkie. there is a big differance between being dependant and being addicted. Forams like this help alot of people. The fact is alot of honest legitimate people have to take opiate pain killers. I hope you re think some of your ideas.
I agree with you. My sister is disabled and has been on opiates for 12 years. She takes it as prescibed and will always be on them. Me on the other hand could not control my intake and I consider myself a addict but I'm a 54 day clean addict!
Wow, old post - check out the dates....
As far as mg's go, your doctors are right. It's the type of opiate that's in the medicines that make them different!! Most people (me included) would agree that oxycodone is way more effective (as well as addictive) - this is the opiate in percs. Hydrocodone is the opiate in norcos. If you were to get the generic version of either, it would probably just read "hydrocodone" or "oxycodone" on the bottle. So to answer your question...everyone is different, but for MOST, oxycodone (perc) is stronger. However, 10mg norcos may infact help you more than 5mg percs BECAUSE of the MG difference....make sense?
