Is Oxycodone And Percocet The Same
Is it okay to take percocet (oxycodone) once a day even though it is supposed to be taken every 4-6 hours?
Yes: Percocet can be taken up to every 4-6 hours (although I would not recommend it). However, it should be written as a 'prn' medication, or 'as needed', so you can take it as few times a day as you need to treat your pain. Once your pain has subsided, you can discontinue the medication. Please dispose of them properly as it can be dangerous to leave them around and if someone else takes them. ...Read more
Key ingredients: 1st things first. Brand names like Percocet & vicodin are used to describe various generic medications. Percocet is a brand of oxycodone + Acetaminophen while vicodin is a brand of hydrocodone + acetaminophen. Oxycodone is currently a schedule ii narcotic while hydrocodone is schedule iii (less restrictive) but efforts are being made to increase restrictions (make it schedule ii). All pain killers. ...Read more
See answer below: Constipation is going to be a big one. Dependence is another. Pain is a common part of life, and taking it away completely with oxycodone lowers the pain threshold which ultimately makes people feel more vulnerable and less tolerant to common, nonpathologic pains and aches. I would be very careful not to use oxycodone for chronic pain as other alternatives are better fitted for this purpose. ...Read more
Why would a: Doctor, who believes that these medications 1) require a doctor's prescription for valid reasons after considering someone's whole health history think you should buy prescription opiates online 2) further want to feed a prescription opiate epidemic that is killing more people now than auto accidents. If you have an opiate problem, get help for it. If you have a pain problem, see a physician. ...Read more
I am exp bad side effects from oxycodone that I didn't experience on Percocet. So my pain doc prescribed it 2day but nurses wrote 2 fill 9-14.What 2do?
Doctors keep telling me that oxycodone (percocet 10/325) and oxycodone hydrochloride are the same why do the roxys make me so sick and not workon pain?
Percocet v. Oxy: Percocet contained oxycodone, but it also has Acetaminophen (tylenol (acetaminophen)). There may be something about the way oxyir is formulated that irritates your GI system, and/or you may benefit more from the tylenol (acetaminophen) than the oxycodone for your specific pain (s). Some people find it hard to believe, but many times nsaids or Acetaminophen may be all you truly need to treat your pain. ...Read more

Is a 12 panel urine test able to differentiate between a Oxycodone hydrochloride 30 mg and a Percocet 10/325?
No: Tests for opiates vary and the fact it is a 12-panel test means little. Many urine opiate tests will not detect oxycodone, while others have a specific panel that will detect it. However, it cannot tell the difference between the oxycodone in a 30 mg tablet and that in a oxycodone-acetaminophen combo. Why are you concerned is my question? People with drug issues should be concerned with that. ...Read more
Is hydrocodone the same as oxycodone? I'm allergic to hydrocodone and they gave me Percocet and I had the same reaction as hydrocodone.
The same: Both are opioids, but define what kind of reaction you had to either, was it itching, redness, ? those are rather side effects of the opiods in general not a true allergy, at any rate if you don't feel comfortable taking them, stop and ask your doctor for an alternative analgesic, a potent NSAID would do as good, wish you wellness ...Read more
She must want help: Family members can only do so much. You can express your concerns to the doctor who is prescribing for her, since I would suspect that, at her age, she isn't obtaining the drug from "street" sources. You and other family members can attend alanon meetings to get help for yourselves - dealing with anger, guilt, shame etc. If she will accept treatment, help in finding help. Express caring, don't nag. ...Read more

Will fentanyl show up on a normal 12 panel urine test? Friend has an Rx for percocet. Will fentanyl influence the results of his oxycodone levels too?
Most likely: Fentanyl will most likely show up as a positive test for opioids on a 12 panel urine drug screen. The panel does not have a specific test for fentanyl in the panel, but fentanyl is an opioid. There is a specific for oxycodone on the test that should be positive in someone taking Percocet. It is strongly recommended that a person be completely honest about what drugs have been used prior to test ...Read more
No way to know: In every person, because there are individual differences, but in general hydrocodone is about 1/3 to 1/2 less potent than oxycodone, so that it takes 7.5 mg of hydrocodone to get equivalent pain relief as 5 mg of oxycodone. There can no longer be 500 mg of tylenol in EITHER preparation - the new FDA rules mandate that no more than 325 mg of acetaminophen be in any combination tablet of tylenol. ...Read more
Dosing: Dosing is the only difference. They both have oxycodone and acetaminophen, tylox has 5mg of oxycodone and 500mg of acetaminophen, where as Percocet has different levels or oxycodone and Acetaminophen (multiple dosing formaulations), most commonly 5 mg of oxycodone and 325mg of acetaminophen. Hope this helps! ...Read more
Hello. Can a Oxycodone-acetaminophen 5/325 generic for Percocet be safely split in half and taken or is this dangerous. Hubby broke a tooth. Thank you
Which of these has nightmares as a side effect? Oxycodone, percocet, celecoxib, or diazepam (valium)?
Hard to Say:
Side effects of most medications are turning out to be highly individualistic and sometimes based upon genetic susceptibility! This is fairly new research. But, it suggests that any specific side effect is not necessarily going to happen to you.
That said, with the exception of celecoxib, these drugs are narcotics and/or sedative/hypnotics and can cause "dysphoric" feelings and hallucinations. ...Read more
Can you tell me how a doctor decide whether to prescribe percocet or percodan (oxycodone and aspirin)?
Aspirin or tylenol (acetaminophen): If an individual has an acute injury and will need a strong pain reliever for a short time, it really doesn't matter much which drug the doctor recommends. People with history of ulcers shouldn't take Aspirin (which is in Percodan) and people with liver problems should avoid tylenol (acetaminophen) (Percocet). If they are to be used long-term, Percocet is better tolerated than an Aspirin containing medication. ...Read more

Bone pain: If the Percocet works, then Oxycontin or MS Contin (morphine) would probably be decent choices. The dosing for these meds is every 8-12 hours and you can use a different medication for breakthrough pain. Other meds like steroids and NSAIDs may help. Localized radiation may help. Depends on type of cancer.Getting cancer under control is most impt regarding both health AND pain relief. ...Read more
