    Default How much stronger is endofcet 5-325 ?

    Comparitively to vicoin 500? Im in quite a bit of pain, and was getting use to taking 2 500mg of vucodins, but now my doctor has switched me over to percocet. Will I only need one of them to substitute for 2 500mg vicodins or will I need to take 2 of them.

    The prescription says to take one or tro tabets by mouht every 4 hours, but i dont want to be taking 2 of them every 4 hours and overdoseor make myself sick,,

    Thanks

    WEll the Vicodin had Hydrocodone, and Acetaminophen in it, while Percocet has Oxycodone and Acetaminophen.

    You are describing your Vicodin by the amount of Acetaminophen in it, but the proper way to let us know what you are taking would be to tell us how much Hydrocodone was in it, 5mgs, 7.5mgs? Since there are several strengths available with the 500mgs of Acetaminophen.

    However Oxycodone, is a stronger drug than the hydrocodone, this is the same as what is used in Oxycontin, it just has Acetaminophen with it, and is not an extended release like Oxycontin. So you may want to try one of the tablets first, and see how it works for you, then take another if it doesn't handle all your pain adequately.

    Here are some pages with comparison information:

    My information is not guaranteed correct. I do not get them right all the time, but I do enjoy the hunt~
