Vicodin Vs. Oxycodone

wondering if anyone can give me a comparison of the two.  I have been taking 10 5mg vic a day for the last 8 months and i have now been out for a full day..  The side affects are bad as far as being very achy and not being able to focus.  I was able to get some oxy which seems to really help but I'm just not familiar with the drug. Are they pretty similar? Thanks in advance for any input.

This is an addiction site and I guess you looking for information about oxycodone because you want to just switch your drug of choice..........

1X1 there really isn't any difference..........Mr. Vicodin

Yes the 5/325 is what Im refering to.  5mg of Hydro Vs 5mg of Perc.  I would ultimatley like to quit this ugly habbit completely by cutting down daily but the problem is I dont have the supply currently to do so.  The percs would be to get me by until I can begin the tappering process. Thank again

Oxycontin is a lot stronger thn vicodin.  If take a lot of the percocet before you get your vicodin the vicodin will not do anything for you.  They will maybe help with some of the withdrawl (withdrawal) you will have from the percocet. If you can help it stay away from the oxy's and try to taper or stop the vicodin you are messing with a serious addiction that WILL ruin your life.

Sorry but it matters what strengths your talking about........

Just because it is oxycotin does not make it stronger........

Oxycotin has 80mg which is the most abused drug today on the market.......

addicts snort this pill and it is sold on the street like wild fire....

You don't know your narcotics to well.....on offense.......

How would you know what I know about narcotics.  I was trying to explain to the person to stay away from oxy's.  If you would have read my post instead of thinking you know everything you would have understood my point.  But I guess 10mg of hydrocodone is as strong as 10mg of oxycodone.  Maybe need to do some reaserch yourself.

Addiction issue aside - I'd go with whatever has less tylenol if you're ingesting in bulk.

I wish you the best of luck in your path to getting off of the pills all together. There are a lot of differences in the two pills, but if you wish to get off of the "ugly habit" then my suggestion to you would be to cut them out of your life completely and no longer be able to have access to them. Once again, I wish you the best of luck in this.

Just want to know what is stronger Norco (10mg hydrocodone/325 tylenol or 10mg Percocet (10mg oxycodone/325mg tylenol?)

Seems equal unless one narcotic is stronger than the other.  They hasv same 10mg of the narcotic in it and same amount of tylenol 325

Would appreciate your thoughts and experiences,

Not quite sure
