I contacted my Dr about changing my prescription from Norcos to something stronger. I was taking 10/325 Hydrocodone/acetaminophen and she has prescribed me Percocet 5/325 Oxycodone/acetaminophen. I really don't notice much of difference I have an appointment to see her soon and i don't know if she will change this or not. What i want to know is how much stronger is this Change supposed to be? as to me it doesn't seam like much it seams to give me almost the same pain relief? Is this normal or can anyone tell me more about this and why she chose this drug? I am an MS patient and have a lot of pain and my doctor is very sympathetic and usually gives me what i need. I know i am not asking a Dr this as i will when i see her but i would like to know from others experiences on this. I will be asking for something different because this is not strong enough for me. What will she most likely prescribe and my Dr is very good and knows i am in pain and being a past nurse (lvn) she is not suspicious if i ask for a certain drug. Any general information you can give me would be greatly appreciated. TIA i look forward to finding out as i will not see my Dr for 2 weeks.
Thank you

Hello Beatnik.
i just want to give a little idea on these drugs.
i do sell most of these drugs.

hydrocodone and oxycodone are similar in analgesic effect, but research shows that oxycodone is generally as effective at 66% of the dosage of hydrocodone-- i.e.

5mg oxycodone= 7.5mg hydrocodone

However, one study, for example in dental application after molar removal , show that oxycodone is significantly more effective.
With long term use patients typically must increase their dose to continue pain relief.
This is true for all opiate based narcotics. The body grows tolerant and more is needed to be beneficial. Now with that said, if you can use another medication, like Ultram or Ultracet daily and the codone only for severe pain you will have greater benefits. Tramadol is the pain relief property in Ultram & Ultracet and is believed to not cause dependency and addiction.
for more informations contact me back through my _[removed]_.

Is the name imprinted on the Percocet ENDO? If not, ask the Doc to specify Endo.

Not all 166 Percocet products are the same ... no matter what your pharmacist or physician "wish".

Oxycodone is a man-make chemical (called opioid), a synthetic for morphine. It is NOT a narcotic.
