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!
What is stronger oxycodone 15mg or 10/325?

I am trying the 15mg right now for first time. I have been on Percocet 10/325 for years. “Along time “ now dr’s want too just take me off everything. Even The Valium 10mg for anxiety I have been on for over 10 years. They told me
“You may cease” (die) I can’t believe a dr would say these things too a person with anxiety!!! Well hope you feel better. I just wanted too vent.
I have been on oxycodone 10 325 for 6 years dr just gave me 15 mg oxycodone I have had a bad headache I feel the 10 worked better but I had to take more
Does oxycodone 10/325 oxycodone 15 do they have the same ingredients
Oxycodone and Oxycotin do indeed attack different pain receptors in different ways. Back to the OP ... the 10/325 mg oxycodone/acetaminophen 8 times a day is stronger than the 15mg IMM Rel tabs oxycodone twice a day. As stated above, you have went from 80mg down to 30mgs even though it's now extended time release. Has your doctor discussed the possibility of a intrathecal pain pump? They work wonders and prevents other organ damage due to the micro amounts needed to numb the nerves in the spinal cord. I suffer from failed back surgery syndrome, Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) and severe neuropathy. My pain pump has controlled 80% of my pain and got me back to living a much better life! Good luck from another that's been there and knows what you are going through!
Kodia, don't assume that others are naive, when you also gave incorrect information. OxyContin is a brand, whereas oxycodone is a chemical compound. Just like Tylenol is a drug brand that contains acetaminophen. OxyContin is pure oxycodone with a built in time release mechanism. Roxicodone, on the other hand, is pure oxycodone without a time release mechanism. For example, blue 30mg Roxicodone pills are immediate release oxycodone unalterated by acetaminophen. Therefore, you are incorrect that Percocet is the only formulation of oxycodone that is immediate release because Roxicodone is technically immediate release pure oxycodone and the person who posed the question was referring to IR tablets (if I'm not mistaken?).
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.
we have the same concern. i have been on the percocet 10/ 325 for years but was changed to 15 mg. of IR oxycodone. It makes me sugglish but doesent help my pain as much. im thinking about calling my doctor and take these back and get my other script im use too
Obviously the 15mg poll is more potent than the 10mg. But he went from 80 mgs. a day to 30... and that's a bummer
I am not really sure since I take he 15 as a jump start to 30 time released
The Oxycodone 10/325 is stronger than the 15 m.g. Oxycodone because the acetaminophen, which is the "325," actually potentiates the action of the Oxycodone, making it stronger.
Of course the 15mg is stronger, people think because because of the acetaminophen it is stronger u should not take the 10/325 no longer than eight years due to liver damage...
15 mg oxycodone is stronger with out the danger of long term liver problems kidney
the 15mg oxycodone is stronger. catspaw1955
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.
The 15mg with no acetaminophen is definitely stronger than the 10mg with 325 acetaminophen. Acetaminophen is whats in tylenol.
