I've been prescribed Norco 10/325 for the last five years, and I've build a tolerance to it. I've always taken it as prescribed, responsibly. But my question is: Is Norco 10/325 equal in strength to Percocet 7.5/325? I have an appt., coming up with my pain management doctor, because if it is equal in strength, it will be the same thing as the norco. Please help me discern between the two, as the norco does not take away the pain like it use to, it takes just a little away, but still left with pain.
Is Norco 10/325 equal to Percocet 7.5/325 in strength?
So your saying they are about equal, so then when I talk with my dr., percocet 10 would be a little stronger, I will discuss this with my dr., could you give my a little more insight on this, please. Thank you, your information is very valuable.
In my opinion yes. I think you will find a lot more pain relief from the Percocet but it really depends on your own body. Everyone responds differently but in general thats a good comparison.
the percocet is a little bit stronger so a perc 10 would be equal to about 15mgs of hydrocodone
Everyone is different. They r two different medications. Norco is vicodin(hydrocodone) & percocet is oxycodone. Generally speaking the percocet is stronger for most people vs vicodin in the same strength but you r talking 2 different strengths so its hard to say. Percocet is a higher controlled substance than vicodin. I went from Norco 10 to percocet 10s & its stronger. If u r taking pain meds u want to take the lowest amount possible tho so I would try the lower dose 1st. Have they talked to u abt being on a long acting pain med/ or are u on one? Most apply n chronic pain benifit from a long acting time released pain med & one of the ones u r talking abt as a breakthrough med
No it isn't equal Percocet is stronger it is Oxycodone and Norcos are Hydrocodone. Oxycodone is noticeably stronger
Thank you all for you valuable info. The white Norco 10-325 is causing me severe side effects, although the claim is they've only changed the color to identify the pill easier?? I have had to take this over a coarse of 5 years since my 2 botched back surgeries & after just one day, the side effects were quite evident. Just stopping them cud have drastic consequences! Can anyone who's switched to Percocet share their benefits/side effects? Thank you
I think the percocet is stronger
I have had 2 back surgeries and neck surgery. Other than that I've been hospitalized for a few other things and generally always have been sent home with hydrocodien. It no longer helps me with pain. My pain management doctor switched me to percocet 7.5 and they WORK well. Better than the hydrocodien.I think like any drug you take over time you get immumed or build a tolerance to the drug you been taking. I have lumbar stenosis, and cervical stenosis, degenertive bone disease , narrowing of the spine and suffered a stroke last year at the age of 47. There is not s magical pill that take all the pain away buy percocet takes the edge off for sure. I also have COPD and crazy as it sounds, hydrocodien helps STOP my cough??? Hope this info helps someone.
Don't know but would like that answer cause Norco didn't work on me so I was prescribed Percocet 7.5 325 and used to take Vicodin they actually worked
I have the exact problem with the person who asked the question because I’ve built up a tolerance also. It helps lessen the pain. Sometimes I have to take 2 which then I’m takin 650 mg of the Tylenol
