Besides the differences in milligrams of Oxycodone and Acedamediphine sometimes Asprin, what are the differences between these pain killers...

Vicodin and lortab contain a relatively weak opiate called hydrocodone. The other 3 all contain oxycodone which is around the middle of the opiate scale. Percocet contains tylenol, percodan contains asa and oxycodone is all by itself.
All of these drugs are useful for short term pain although there is oxycontin which is a sustained release version of oxycodone and is used extensively for long term chronic pain. So vicodin and lortab are both the same opiate and differ in strength of tylenol and hydrocodone. Same with the oxycodone drugs... Dave

I read all you the responses and comments and let me say you sound much better than when you frist asked the question. I would just like to mention that therapy can also be very helpful for back pain. As long as it is prescribed by your doctor. I know it is enpensive but maybe your doc can give you some exercises you can do on your own Good Luck

"The vicodin and lortab are the same as far as the hydrocodone but the tylenol could be different" thats wrong. Lortab is 7.5 and hydro is 5 or 10 mg buut your right about the tylenol
perc and oxycodone are the same pills (oxy is the generic) that comes in a few different milligrams and im not sure about percodan cuz iv never filled that

Id like to know why Percocet does nothing for me? They give me the 7.5mg and I get no help with my hip pain. I can down 30mg of Lortab and it just touches the pain. I understand that I have been on the Lortab for a 1yr but when im giving another drug for brake pain and it does nothing I want to go to the ER and tell them to hit me like Im at a bar even thought I dont drink.

I was always told working as a nurse that Percocet is a name brand when mixed with tylenol. Just as Percodan is oxycodone and aspirin.
