and why is that one stronger? would 2 watson 749s equal 1 percocet 10/325??
Have u ever used the med pill identifier? I believe that one 7.5 mg of vicoden = a 5 mg percocet. You Need to first find out if the pill you have that says Watson is a Vic or perc first. Then go from there. The biggest concern with vicoden is the formula and amounts of Tylenol for instance: 7.5/750 (somewheres along that line) is a extra strength vicoden, and a 7.5 or even 10 mg of percocet can carry 325 or 500 mgs of Tylenol. So normally percocets has a better formula for the least amount of Tylenol. Hope this helped. Take care, leanne
A watson 749 is a 5/325 percocet. Meaning it contains a mix of 5mg percocet and 325mg acetominophen (tylenol). Where as a percocet 10/325 contains twice as much percocet with the same amount of tylenol therefore it is stronger. Note: 2 watson 749s would equal the same amount of percocet as a 10/325 however it would equal twice as much tylenol, remember that too much tylenol can be very bad for your liver... I hope this helps.
Seriously? I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume that you do not know that 749 Watson is 5/325 oxycodone. But if you did know that it was a 5 325 and could not figure out that five plus five is equal to 10 and that 10mg is stronger than 5mg I would strongly suggest that you steer clear of any narcotic analgesic or any controlled substance for that matter!
The Percocet 10/325 is the stronger. It's twice the amount of oxycodone being 10mg vs 5mg in a Watson 749.
The above answer is correct. It takes two 749's to equal a 10/325 Percocet!
Also someone else wrote in that the 749 was 325 of Tylenol and 25mg of oxycodone such a combination does not exist yet., but it would be nice if Watson would make this combo with 25mg in it. It would save 1000's of people taking two-three tablets to just get some relief. and it would cut down of the Tylenol which is the ingredient that harms the liver and kidneys. Not the actual oxycodone chemical compound..
