How strong or effective is talacen? What level narchotic is talacen compared to other narchotic pain meds?
4 Aug 2010
Talacen is a class 4 controlled substance with some potential for abuse. Accordingly, it is not as strong as oxycodone, Lortab, OxyContin, methadone, etc. When I looked up Talacen this is the list of pain meds that came up. However, your medicine (opiate wise) appears to be "weaker" then many of the comparable meds listed. I'll try to add some specific details regarding Talacen in a comment after I review it more.
