Can a dr or lab tell the difference between an oxycodone 15mg and oxycodone 30mg in a ua other then a higher dosage???

Can a dr or lab tell the difference between an oxycodone 15mg and oxycodone 30mg in a ua other then a higher dosage???

Interesting question: I've never thought about that question when dealing with drug screens because to my knowledge they are strictly QUALITATIVE and not QUANTITATIVE. in other words, an employer only really cares if a substance is detectable or not. The police are more interested in HOW MUCH when it comes to Alcohol, weed, cocaine and so forth because the amount of jail time tends to go up with increasing quantities. ...Read more

Never took oxycodone before. what dose would be good?

What doc prescribed: If this was prescribed, the dose the doctor wants you to take is on the prescription, and your pharmacist can further explain how to use it. If it was not prescribed, then ZERO would be the right dose for you. These are not questions anyone should be asking anyone other than the prescriber and their pharmacist. Strangers who do not know your health history are not the best source of information. ...Read more

Pain mgt, dr. Placed me oxycondone 5mg instead of perc.10/325. Am i going to have more pain with this lower dose of oxycodone 5mg? I cannot do that.

No: You are not. Give your doctor a chance to guide your care. Give the new medicine three days and see. If it's better, great! if not, keep your doctor abreast. Keeping a positive attitude, and faith in their caring for your well-being will go a long way to getting better. Dosage for different medicines is not as critical as trust, judgment, and experience. ...Read more

What dose of oxycodone would have the same pain relief effects as one dose of fentora 800mcg?

What dose of oxycodone would have the same pain relief effects as one dose of fentora 800mcg?

It depends: Even among experts the notion of opiate equivalences can be considered controversial especially if one becomes overly specific. Genetic and other contextual variable including the amount and duration all play a role. This is not a question for you to try and figure out. It is challenging enough for your physician! ...Read more

How long should I wait to take Suboxone after my last dose of oxycodone? I can't wait 24 hrs.

If you are dependent: on oxycodone, and you take Suboxone BEFORE you are in active withdrawal, you will very much wish you had waited!! SUboxone will cause precipitated withdrawal in people who are not already in withdrawal, and precipitated withdrawal is far more severe than naturally developing withdrawal, and can actually be life-threatening, with seizures, delirium and very very severe withdrawal symptoms. ...Read more

How long does one 15 mg oxycodone dose to leave urine?

How long does one 15 mg oxycodone dose to leave urine?

2-4 days: depending on how you metabolize it. The larger question is what is behind what you are asking. I would guess that you are being drug tested. If you are in a position where drug testing is possible, yet you still take a drug that is NOT prescribed for you, with the possibility of getting into trouble, perhaps even going to jail, if you test positive, to me that means a drug problem.

If already in withdrawal from Oxycodone, can I take the suboxone without gettin precipitated WD even if it's only been 15-17hrs since last dose of oxy?

Most likely: officially, you need to wait at least 24 hours. Practically, many people do it and even earlier. Legally, you need to do it in the presence of your doctor. Practically, if you are sweating, have muscle cramps, goosebumps, diarrhea – you can do it. Just start with a very small piece of the film to test if you are not precipitating further problems. good luck. Get treatment. ...Read more

I started taking serax for withdrawal symptoms from oxycodone. I take 4 per day-15 mg each. I am very worried that this may show up on a drug test on Wednesday. I took my last dose at 6 pm last night. Will I be ok?

Yes: if it shows up as Benzodiazepam, you can inform them that is a prescribed medication. You could also get a note from your doctor stating that your receiving a Benzodiazepam. My concern is that you may need a real treatment for your opiod addiction. Only longterm effective therapy are with Methadone or Buprenorphine or Vivitriol with counseling ...Read more

Could Nucynta (tapentadol) be prescribed for post op severe pain for Fulkerson osteotomy? If so what dose would be appropriate if comparing to 5-10mg oxycodone?

Yes: All narcotic medications bind the same receptor with different affinity making some more efficacious at lower doses. The Oxycodone should be fine and and you shouldn't need it for very long. Get off of it as soon as you can. Why do you want to use Nucynta (tapentadol) instead? ...Read more

I am taking a prescribed dose of vyvanse, (lisdexamfetamine) and also prescribed oxycodone. Last urine test showed hydrocodone, no o-oxycodone. Could Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) cause this?

Test limitstion: This is a limitation of in office urine screen testing. The kind that are commonly used have a high error rate. The next step should be sending the urine out to a laboratory for confirmation. The tests done there are highly accurate. Office cup tests are enzyme linked immuno-assay, laboratories can do a test called liquid chromatography/ mass spectroscopy. ...Read more

Ihave migraine since yesterday, Advil (ibuprofen) not working. I take oxycodone 5/325 occasionally for back pain. Can i try 1 dose for migraine?

You can,: But acute headache remedies (opioids) taken more than two days a week may be associated with a transformation of episodic migraine attacks into an almost daily chronic migraine headache. The ideal abortive migraine drug should have a rapid onset of action, high overall efficacy (e.g. Triptan).

Taken 15mg oxycodone q6 for about 6 mos (chronic back pain). Weaning off at 10mg X5/day. Feel anxious, irritable. Is this from decreased dose? Having trouble distinguishing from my normal anxiety, and not sure if I should use my lorazepam for it.

Go slower, get help: I am assuming this is prescribed, so it should be the PRESCRIBER who helps you taper off. I recommend no more than about 10% of the dose per week, which would be about 5 mg per week over 10-12 weeks. You are going twice that fast, so I would slow it down. BUT TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR OR PRESCRIBER about it. I would NOT recommend using lorazepam in any higher dose than is already prescribed.Good luck ...Read more
