... tylenol I'm?I want to get away from taking 2000mg of tylenol daily.What mg of oxycontin would I need to replace the 40mg of vicodin daily?
I think the other person said 5-15 & I hate to say it but 5mg of Oxycodone(they don't make 5 mg oxycontin) is about equal to the 10mg of Vicodin. I would explain to your doctor especially right now because there actully talking about taking percocet & vicodin off the market because of the tylonol. In most other countrys you can get 4 hydrocodone with nothing else added,but in the U.S they have to mix it with something like asprin tylonol & other stuff.that you do not want the tylonol & this is where it gets difficult. Do you need around the clock pain control? If yes then I would ask for two 20mg Oxycontin,mabey three cuz they don't work for 12 hrs like the company claims,it's more like 6. If you just need it certain times during the day I would ask for 5 or 10mg oxycodone,not oxycontin three times a day. That will change to as you develope a tolerance but to start it should work fine.
I started on 6 5mg oxycodone & now I'm on two 100 mg MS Contin & 4 4mg Dilaudid. Hope you get the pain control you need. PS. I did also have another C-1 C-2 fussion.
