Absolutely not, if your pain is moderate to severe. Unfornately, docs are so dang afraid to give a pain sufferer what they need because of their own safety and we suffer for it!
This pill has 5mg of oxycodone and 325mg of acetaminophen (this is what 5/325 means). 5mg of oxycodone is a small dose (or starting dose). 325mg of acetaminophen is the same as one regular strength Tylenol tablet. (Extra Strength Tylenol is 500mg per pill) So no, it is not a strong dose at all. Oxycodone is a fairly strong opioid though and should be used with caution but as long as you follow Drs recommendations you should be fine.
That's a beginning dose.
No that is a low dose
