I've been prescribed Norco 10/325 for the last five years, and I've build a tolerance to it. I've always taken it as prescribed, responsibly. But my question is: Is Norco 10/325 equal in strength to Percocet 7.5/325? I have an appt., coming up with my pain management doctor, because if it is equal in strength, it will be the same thing as the norco. Please help me discern between the two, as the norco does not take away the pain like it use to, it takes just a little away, but still left with pain.
Is Norco 10/325 equal to Percocet 7.5/325 in strength?

So your saying they are about equal, so then when I talk with my dr., percocet 10 would be a little stronger, I will discuss this with my dr., could you give my a little more insight on this, please. Thank you, your information is very valuable.

Thank you all for you valuable info. The white Norco 10-325 is causing me severe side effects, although the claim is they've only changed the color to identify the pill easier?? I have had to take this over a coarse of 5 years since my 2 botched back surgeries & after just one day, the side effects were quite evident. Just stopping them cud have drastic consequences! Can anyone who's switched to Percocet share their benefits/side effects? Thank you

Everyone is different. They r two different medications. Norco is vicodin(hydrocodone) & percocet is oxycodone. Generally speaking the percocet is stronger for most people vs vicodin in the same strength but you r talking 2 different strengths so its hard to say. Percocet is a higher controlled substance than vicodin. I went from Norco 10 to percocet 10s & its stronger. If u r taking pain meds u want to take the lowest amount possible tho so I would try the lower dose 1st. Have they talked to u abt being on a long acting pain med/ or are u on one? Most apply n chronic pain benifit from a long acting time released pain med & one of the ones u r talking abt as a breakthrough med
