Is Oxycodone Stronger Than Hydrocodone?


I take norco 10/325 after taking lortab 10. It seems not to help me as much what do I do. The design changed it. I have a lot of arthritis and fibromyalgia.

Hello, Tinkerbelle! How are you doing? Sorry that you're in pain.

Yes, Oxycodone is stronger, it only takes 6.67mgs of it to equal each 10mgs of Hydrocodone.

Learn more Oxycodone details here.

This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

Have you discussed the issue with your doctor?

These meds are identical. Norco is Hydrocodone, not Oxycodone.

What do the numbers mean in oxycodone 10/325? My husband takes this and we were both wondering? Also I take hydrocodone 7.5/325, which one is stronger and do the numbers mean the same in these medications?

Miller37, the numbers mean 10 mg of oxycodone and 325 mg of Tylenol/acetiphamine. The hydrocodone is weaker than the oxycodone, but the 325 is the mg of Tylenol in them. Too confirmed your question Oxycodone is stronger than hydrocodone. Help this helps!

After speaking in depth about Oxycodone 5 vs Hydrocodone 10 I was advised that one Oxycodone 5 is the equivalent to 1.4 to 1.6 mgs of one Hydrocodone 10. This was advised to me by two different pharmacists at different places. I had been on Hydrocodone 10 for 13 years before I had to be moved on Oxycodone, & I have a terminal illness so it can be done, staying on an opioid for years without having to move up. As long as your responsible & don't abuse them.

Loritab10 is the same as Norco10. They're both 10mg Hydrocodones Norco may not have as much Tylenol in them for patients that are sensitive to it. Hydro is not as strong as Oxycodone. This is why Hydrocodones used to be Schedule-III narcotic & Oxycodone is Schedule-II narcotic. They both at Schedule-II Now.

I take up to 160 mgs of hydrocodone daily as prescribed by my doctor. Will taking 80 mgs of oxycodone ER hurt me?
