Oxyir 5mg Vs Percocet 5mg
(Newest replies first)


I usually take three 5mg generic percocets that are not Instant Release. I just picked up my script and noticed it has been changed to generic OxyIR that is Instant Release. Do I take my dose as usual? What would be the differences or hazards?

If you can get it, I have found the perc/oxycodone 10 to really help. Also, you can break them in half. It takes ten minutes for the half to help then take the other half in an hour or two. This should work for 3/4 hours of relief. I'm permanently disabled and you only have to take a few per day this way. I wish I could find a doctor here that can give me ninety/month. Just moved to Mansfield, Ohio. May have to move again if I can't get a good doctor here :/ Thanks y'all.

You should take your dose according to whatever your doctor's prescribing instructions are.

The difference between the two is that the Percocet contained both Oxycodone and Acetaminophen and was a regular release formula.

The OxyIR contains JUST Oxycodone, without the Acetaminophen and is instant release, so it works to relieve your pain much faster.

The side effects are about the same, you may experience: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation.


Do you have any other questions?
