I used to be on oxycodone 10/325 8 times per day. I have a new Dr. and he switched me to 15mg IMM rel tabs oxycodone twice a day. I just started yesterday by taking half at a time. I didn't really notice any relief. Which med is more potent? The 15 mg has no acetaminophen in and the others have 325 mgs of acetaminophen. I'm confused!
First of all, the 15mg IR is stronger than the 10/325. They are the same chemical, just one has Tylenol. The brand name for the 15mg is Oxycotin or Roxycotin. Though if you were taking 8 of the 10mg a day & now taking 2 of the 15mg a day. You've gone from taking 80mg a day to 30mg a day. Doctors try to do this sometimes hoping the patient won't notice. Hope this helps.
Wow some people have no clue what they are talking about on here. First of all he said Oxycodone which is not the same as OxyContin. He is taking 15mg of Oxycodone which is immediate release.
I have been on this stuff for a long time and I have a background in pharmacology. But anyway you need a higher dose.. Your use to taking 80mg a day. You should be taking OxyContin 40mg twice a day. Or better yet get away from the pills and go to a Fentynal patch. Works much better and you only have to change it every 48-72hrs.
