I recently switched from Vicoprfen 7.5 to Oxycodone 5. It's been 2 weeks I'm not getting the same level of relief I was getting from the Vicoprofen. I know my doctor will be willing to up my Oxycodone to 7.5 when I need a refill in a couple of weeks but I'm nervous. After reading a lot of horror story's about Oxy on this site I want to make sure it's necessary. My doc gave me the impression that beacause Oxy is stronger the 5mg of it would be equal to 7.5 of the Hydrocodone but I'm not finding that to be the case. Any help?

I am so sorry I can't give you accurate conversion's I don't have a conversion table, most of all the doctors who deal with pain however do but just be honest with the doctor as to how the pain feels he may even come up with a medication that isn't one of these two and may even provide you with ongoing relief that is my hope for you
