Had major reconstructive foot surgery, with pins in toes and a plate in big toe-still have pretty severe pain. have needed to take 1/2 percocet 5/325 every 3 1/2 hrs just to be able to stand the pain, and it's still there even with that dosage. I was just switched to darvocet 100. Will it come close to what the percocet does for me? I am scared of this much pain!
Don't think so. Darvocet isn't nearly as strong as oxycodone. I'd ask your doctor or doctors to let you switch on a trial basis & if your still in alot of pain to switch you back without a big hassle. Some or most doctors are afraid to write oxycodone because of all the knuckleheads snorting,shooting or just plain abusing it. I'm on 100mg M.S Contin & my doc would probably double it rather than switch me to Oxcycontin.
the above posts say its a weak drugs... this is very untrue... It is weaker than percocet (perc being a c2 and darv being a c4) but darvocet is the strongest NON-c2 drug you can get (stronger than vicodin/apap or loritab). this is still very good at taking away pain... i do not agree with these previous posts in any way
