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???
Hydrocodone 10 325 versus oxycodone 10 325 which one is stronger?

I had been on oxycodone 10/325 since 1982. I fell from a tree and broke my back which has caused back pain ever since. I tried hydrocodone 10/325 but I did not like it the hydrocodone 10/325 worked to slow. Percocet is a combination of oxycodone and acetaminophen. Oxycodone is a semi-synthetic opiate that is made by modifying thebaine, an organic compound in opium with the addition of Tylenol so it acts faster than hydrocodone. Percocet is not recommended for long-term use because acetaminophen has been found to cause serious liver damage. That's why some doctors prescribe hydrocodone 10/325 which Hydrocodone is a semi-synthetic opioid drug, derived from the opiate codeine.
When thebaine is modified for oxycodone one (1) more molecule of oxygen is formed causing the drug to be absorbed faster so its able to acts quicker.
As stated before every person is different. My doctor switched me from Percocet to plain oxycodone 15mg. It works but not like the Percocet 10/325 even though its 15mg. To help the oxycodone 15mg. work faster and better I take 300mg of Tylenol with each tablet.
In my case I say No... I have had 4 back surgeries, and don't want to another one.
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
That's what I'm asking what is stronger a Percocet 10/325 Than a hydrocodone 10/325
Oxycodone have different brands I take the endocet 10/325mg they r yellow and it works. Ask your doctor to write you the endocets 10/325 see how it works for you.
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.

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
Oxycodone is stronger than hydrocodone.
