Oxycodone Elixir 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.

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
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.

I have 7.5/325 oxycodone for pain. I hit the 4000 APAP max for daily dose yesterday but stayed up all night. When is it safe to take more and not OD?
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
Depends: Under the care of a physician who is familiar with opioid medications and provides the appropriate education on their use this dose may be as low as 5mg. Always start low and slowly increase as needed under the direction of your physician. Medications should never be altered or changed without physician direction. 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.

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
