the reason i am asking is because i ran out of norco before my taper was complete and i am wondering how much i should cut down the roxicet to equal what i need to finish the taper.

Roxicodone(OXYCODONE) is MUCH STRONGER THAN Narco/Vicodin(HYDROCODONE!)

There are also 2 different drugs as well.  Just trying to be accurate and stick to the facts.. Although it is a strong narcotic opiate pain killer as well as Vicodin/Narco it is different also.. Dr's and most people I know are aware that oxycodone is a much stronger opiate than hydrocodone!  Plus the strongest dosage of hydrocodone is 10mg if I am not mistaken(unless a special mixture of pill has been requested to be made by a pharmacist), but oxycodone has came as high as 160mg pill form in a time-released pill(oxycontin).. I am not sure they make the 160mg anymroe, but they do still make the 10mg, 20mg, 40mg, and 80mg oxycontin(which is a time-released oxycodone)  Much stronger.

They are a big NO NO. :) Stay far away from them. Make some fish happy and FLUSH them!  You are wise to ask about them.

Oxycodone....they are like Percocet/Endocet/etc.  As bad as if not worse than Vicodin....you have a problem with narcotics than stay away.

Same thing. They come in different strengths. Its all hydrocodone.
This is going to sound off the wall but it's not. I herniated a disc in my back.I chose not to have surgery. I was still limping after 8 months. I had good doctors. I was never offered a narcotic pain pill from my doctors. I was to the point i would try anything to get better.
I bought this book. Healing Back Pain by Dr John Sarno. Even though i thought it was bull****. I was better in a month....If you have back pain.Try this book.You can get it on line or any book store
