1 doctor agrees

In brief: It depends

Tussionex is sustained release.
It provides a gradual amnt of hydrocodone over 12 hrs. Hycodan is dosed on a shorter interval. If you took Hycodan q 4-6 hrs you'd receive a higher quantity of hydrocodone in total. Both medications however should be used only on an as needed basis. My advise would be to be less concerned about which one is strongest and use the one that is most effective.
