As taking 10 mg oxycodone FOR CHRONIC PAIN FROM CRUSHED VERTEBRAE?
First of all, its impossible to take 30 mg of tramadol it doesn't come in anything but 50 mg pills. Tramadol is for a more moderate pain then oxycodone is. Closer to codeine. Tramadol doesn't work as well if you take it as needed, as oxycodone does. You have to take it more on a regular basis before the pain gets going.
Hi patty, you are sort of asking us to compare apples to oranges in a way.
Oxycodone is a strong-ish pain medication, yet at 10mgs not super strong, and tramadol is an opioid analgesic pain medication that is used to treat acute, or short lasting pain such as a dental proceedure. Now all of this is really just my opinion, and I'm no doctor. But I've taken both and Tramadol doesn't do much, at any miligram. Just my opinion.
Best wishes, and I hope you get that pain under control, having a crushed vertebrae must be incredibly painful. (I'm surprised you are not on something stronger, like Opana)
Good luck to you.
First of all, like all medications, it really depends on how it effects your own body. With things like these it is always trial and error. But, I would say for your type of pain, Oxycodone would be better. Tramadol might give you slight relief, but not a whole lot. Just make sure if you take any opiate for a while that you also take a stool softener, or gentle laxative. All opiates can cause constipation.
