How often do you take a 100 mg. tablet per day? Is Morphine stronger than percocet?
Doctor often argue about Morphine vs. Oxycodone (Percocet, Oxycontin,Oxycodone). Sometimes doctors say that Oxycodone is twice as strong as morphine (100mg of Oxycodone equals 200mg of Morphine), some doctors say they're equal (100mg equal 100mg). My father has been on both (His doctor said they're equal) and they put my dad on morphine 30mg as needed (He was previously on Oxycodone). My dad said that the Morphine wasn't as effective as the Oxycodone. Personally I believe that Oxycodone is more effective than Morphine and is 1/3rd more potent than Morphine. That's my personal opinion based on my research on the subject. Some doctor will tell you they're equal, others will say Oxycodone is 2x more potent than Morphine. It all depends on who you ask. 100mg is also a moderate dose based on if you've been taking it for a while or not. If you haven't been taking it than it's a high dose. Hope this helps. Happy Holidays!
