Can anyone tell me is tylenol (acetaminophen) 3 stronger than hydrocodone?

Depends. In general tylenol (acetaminophen) 3 is a weaker pain killer than hydrocodone because tylenol (acetaminophen) 3 contains codeine, which a relatively weaker narcotic than hydrocodone. They also have different duration of action but there is individual variability so what works better for one person doesn't necessary work for all. They are all dose related effects as will so this will influence the edfect.

Expert opinions? Which is stronger, hydrocodone or tylenol (acetaminophen) with codine?

No such thing as. "stronger." it is a misnomer to talk about strong and weak opiates, although doctors do this too. It depends on dose and side effects. Codeine is relatively impotent - takes 30 mg to equal 5 mg of hydrocodone, but at those same doses they do pretty much the same thing. However, Codeine has way more potential for side effects, especially at higher doses, so it is more poorly tolerated over 60 mg. Read more...

I have a kidney infection and the doctor just switched me from tylenol (acetaminophen) with codine to hydrocodone. Which medication is stronger?

Hydrocodone. Is more potent, in that 7.5 mg of hydrocodone is the equivalent of 30 mg of codeine. More importantly, hydrocodone is better absorbed, gets into the brain faster, so it provides more pain relief sooner, and has fewer side effects (itching, flushing, nausea, hives, diarrhea) than codeine.

YES. Hydrocodone is a narcotic and should never be taken without a prescription.
