I have been taking Norco/hydrocodone 10 325 three Pills allowed a day since May 2016, very recently we moved and a friend that I've known for eight years brought a girl with him claimed he knew her very well turns out he didn't so therefore she 25 of my pain meds. I have 10 of the oxycodone 10 325 from about six months ago not expired and I have taken one in the morning and then one at night and that's it. The reason I don't take three like the hydrocodone 10 325 a day is because I don't have that many and I have to wait another eight days before I get my prescription filled. The point of my question is why is it that the Norco/hydrocodone 10 325 which are yellow I get from H-E-B work way better then the Oxycodone 10 325???

Everyone reacts differently to different medications they are still the right strength let your doctor know that the Oxycodone is not working for you at all. Normally Oxycodone would be stronger for most people but we are not all the same and they can act differently on each of us. but you do have the right medications so call your doctor Monday if your still having problems with pain and let them know the one is not working at all. good luck Chuck1957
According to all manufacturers of hydrocodone 10/325 and oxycodone 10/325 the oxycodone 10/325 is almost 2x stronger than the hydrocodone. I have taken both and the oxycodone is stronger. Perhaps you have convinced yourself that the oxycodone is not as strong. Mind over matter. Take the oxycodone and tell your brain to shut the f**k up.
Structurally, oxycodone (molecular formula C18H21NO4) and hydrocodone (molecular formula C18H21NO3) are very similar, the difference in their structure comes down to one extra oxygen atom on Oxycodone.
Oxycodone is semi-synthetic and is synthesized from thebaine (an opium alkaloid) and will only relieve pain, not cough. Hydrocodone is also semi-synthetic but derived from codeine. They are the same at pain relief. DUH
