No that is a low dose
That's a beginning dose.
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.
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!
