I was given Oxycodone 10 mg hci for foot surgery because my Norco 10/3.25 did not kill the pain! Would Oxy 10's be good replacement for Norco 10/3.25 for chronic pain (severe pain) in the future?
Oxycodone is a stronger analgesic opiate than Norco which contains the opiate hydrocodone along with acetaminophen..
According to my Dr, It's about 2 1/2 times stronger than Hydrocodone. As for it being a replacement? That's up to the Doc. Hope this helps.
I think you will find it works much better for controlling your pain & you aren't exposed to all that tylenol which is bad for the liver...
I agree with Mary, voted you one up by the. Way, because no one ever points out, the Tylenol and liver effects. Oxycodone is much better, stronger as you do not have the tylenol. Some people believe that the Tylenol keeps it working longer but I don't believe that. Do yes it is a good alternative to the narco if it is not working for you.
If you can tolerate strong pain meds then Oxycodone 10mg would be better. If you are not able to tolerate strong pain meds stick with the Norco... you can always ask the doctor to increase your dose if your pain is not controlled. Oxycodone is some bad medicine it had me out of my head... petting the couch thinking I was petting my dog, telling my brother my dog drove me to the doctor, I also told him I could not find my phone and I needed him to track it... I was talking on it. I met my PT that was going to be coming to my house and don't remember ever seeing her. Tread lightly on that drug!!!
