Taking Oxycodone and a water pill can I do that?
I had ACL replaced about a month ago, I am on Oxycodone for the pain, I take 2 10/325 every 6 hours as needed, can I take a water pill, Diurex Caffine free, for my water weight/PMS?
Thanks for any help?

about oxycodone and acetaminophen?
So, Im taking oxycodone for back pain and am concerned about the acetaminophen, as it supposedly causes liver damage. Ive heard of soaking them in water then filter it to remove the acetaminophen. Does anyone know if this actually works? Thank You.

  This is not a useful method for pain control. This is an addict's method. If you are taking 12x325 or 8x500 or whatever adding up to 4000mg a day over time, max safe dose, liver damage is unlikely in the absence of alcohol. If you need more than that or are on for years, your doc can prescribe pure opioid.

what's the difference between oxycodone hydrochloride and oxycodone with acetaminophen?
And what does acetaminophen do when mixed with oxycodone or hydrocodone?

  Oxycodone hydrochloride - The narcotic pain reliever is mixed with aspirin

Oxycodone Acetaminophen - The narcotic pain reliever is mixed with Acetaminophen
Acetaminophen relieves pain by elevating the threshold to sensing pain. It reduces fever through its action on the heat-regulating center of the brain. The combination of oxycodone and acetaminophen or hydrocodone acetaminophen achieves greater pain relief than either taken separately

Does the Acetaminophen in percocet reduce the effect of the ocycodone or increase it?
My doctor gave me 7.5/500 oxycodone/acetaminophen.

How is this compared to the 7.5/325?

I'm guessing the increased milligrams of tylenol subdue the "drunken" feeling of the Oxycodone, because I can't really notice any difference?

Or, am I wrong?

  Acetaminophen theoretically increases the amount of analgesia (pain relief) obtained from opioids (like oxycodone) but if there is an increase, its marginal.

They also put acetaminophen and other drugs in with opioid medications to deter abuse- too much acetaminophen will make you sick and kill your liver (FDA allows 4 grams or 8 500mg pills or 12 325mg pills in a 24 hour period).

The acetaminophen should not have any effect on the sedation or intoxication from oxycodone so 7.5mg w/, w/o or w/ more acetaminophen should all feel the same.

Is oxycodone bad for your liver w/out the acetaminophen?
I have oxycodone hydrochloride (oxycontin) and there isn't any acetaminophen in it so is it bad for your liver still since I know acetaminophen is, but not sure about the oxycodone alone.

  Oxycodone is not bad for your liver at all, in fact, you always want to make sure you get pure oxycodone instead of an oxycodone / acetaminophen pill. The vast majority of people finally know that acetaminophen damages the liver badly, but they don't know that pills with acetaminophen will also cause damage to the body if they're taken on an empty stomach. You should always eat a cookie or 2, or something of that size, before taking acetaminophen and other types of pills. However, oxycodone can be safely ingested on an empty stomach.

Also, just for further information: oxycontin is not exactly the same as oxycodone. Oxycontin is extended-release oxycodone. Compared with oxycodone, oxycontin is formulated differently and it always has some type of coating that is required to ensure the oxycodone is released over an extended period of time.

what are the dangers in oral ingestion of 30 pills of oxycodone/acetaminophen 5-325M?
Last night, over the course of about 4 hours, I swallowed about 30 pills of oxycodone/acetaminophen 5-325M. I slept fine and feel fine today. What should I be concerned about? This was not a suicide attempt.

What is the difference between oxycontin and oxycodone?
My mom is going thru cancer and has been on percocet (oxycodone + acetaminophen) for a year and recently her oncologist put her on oxycontin every 12 hours and percocet for breakthrough pain as needed. Is oxycontin just a long term or delayed release form of oxycodone or something different entirely? We just want to understand what she's on.

  Percocet is a mixture of oxycodone and APAP (acetaminophen) like you said. Oxycotin is pure oxycodone with a time release effect. Oxycotin comes in much higher doses of oxycodone than percocet.

  5 mg of oxycodone is not enough for you to feel it. The best method would be to crush the pill and either put it in a gel cap or parachute it (put crushed powder in a small bit of tissue paper and swallow with water) and I didnt really see addiction I was doing over 250mg of oxy a week for 2 months and have been off that for a LONG time with no withdraw effects.

  oxycodone has no acetaminophen in it like percocet, it is just the narcotic. percocet is the brand name for a pill that contains oxycodone and it does have acetaminophen. an example would be 5/500 the five being the mg's of oxy and the 500 being the amount of acetaminophen. there is oxycontin which is just oxycodone. the contin part of the word just means continuous release and does not contain any other medication. many medications for pain have part narcotic and part acetaminophen like fioricet which is part butalbital and part aceta. fioricet is the brand name for butalbital. percocet has many siblings the exact same medication by a differant name because it is made by a different pharmaceutical company. try webmd.com they have all the info you need. gd lk

  You will be fine,, you may get sleeping and feel a little off balance but you are on a very low dosage,,, 2 mg of oxycodone is not much at all,,,, worry more about the tylenol,, don't exceed 4,000mg a day.
Even if what you meant was 5mg the total of 20mg is what I take 4 times a dday and have for years,,, you really need to stop messing around,,, some people end up having a bad reaction to even a little bit too much,,,,

the way you are trying to self-medicate really is not a smart thing to do at all.

It's how every addict and abuser I have ever known started,, no one ever thinks it will happen to them,,, well it does,,, I started messing with opiates and ended up a heroin addict,, it sure wasn't what I planned,,, I had an spine injury, was in pain and self medicated like you seem to be,,, it's not smart at all

Really the smart thing to do is to NOT listen or care about what I take or what anyone else writes here,, you can't compare medication,,, everyone is different,,,,, some people can take 120mg of methadone at one time and other people 40mg kills them,,, TAKE THEM AS DIRECTED,, it's pretty simple

PS: I hope a doctor did not tell you that the oxycodone would numb the pain,,,,, it's meant to help control the pain to a manageable level not make it go away completely

PS: look at the link from Ginny,, it's a good one

PS PS: You can't compare MS Cotin to oxycodone,, MS Cotin is morphine sulphate,, they are not the same thing at all and as far as I know the are a 12 hour release

Is it okay if I take this these pills?
I had 5 teeth pulled and my dentist only prescribed 16 Tylenol 3's and I've taken them all. It is night time and I am in pain all the way to my ear now. Is it okay if I took Propoxyphene napsylate, Acetaminophen or acetaminophen and oxycodone? I happen to have some lying around from someone else. Please tell me which pills I should take if I can. Please I'm in pain!!!

  Have the bottle from the Tylenol 3's, and call the pharmacy where you got them. I'm praying they're open 24/7. If they are, tell them what you're going through, and they will guide you.
If that pharmacy is closed, call a 24-hour pharmacy. Look in the Yellow Pages under "Pharmacies." Talk to the pharmacist, and tell him/her exactly what you're going through. They are so smart. Let them guide you. I'm so sorry for you. Pain is the worst. Good luck, hon. :) Do you have any Nyquil in the house to knock you out? That might be the best solution.

OxyCodone vs OxyContin?
I've been prescribed OxyCodone with APAP for a back injury. A friend of mine offered me an oxycontin. He said it was the same thing just without the aspirin/acetaminophen added in. I'm looking at this from a legal standpoint. If I were to be drug tested would it show up differently or as the same thing? And please no "you shouldn't mess with such and such", I just want an answer to my question. Thanks for any help.

How much Aspirin do I need to take to get the same effect of Oxycodone?
A low dose pill containing Oxycodone every night was the only thing that got me to sleep. Now I am forced to pick things over-the-counter because my doctor won't give more and I am suffering (not addicted). I got a big bottle of Aspirin... I hope that it is better than Acetaminophen & Ibruprofen. What is your take? What is the most effective out of the 3? So how many should I take, or maybe I should take one of each? Somebody who knows this stuff help me...
what part of "that was the only thing that got me to sleep" didn't you understand? I don't appreciate responses from people who don't read my post. Just make me suffer more.
it is not nessessarily pain the way most people would think it, it is more of a slow torture of insomnia and sleep deprivation that has grown to be a real live pain for me. i am always dizzy, lightheaded and wobbly with a complete lack of enery every minute i am awake. i can not sleep no matter how exhausted i am, i am extremely anxious and irritated. i havent been able to hold a job or do any normal activities in years and this has taken the best years of my life away from me. every day i need at least 12 hours i sleep in order to get up and feel somewhat normal and be able to resume normal activities like hanging up posters in my room, brushing my teeth, etc. I feel am young man and slim but I feel like an obese 70 year old man. my doctor doesn't understand or listen. the only thing that ever worked for me and soothed all my ailments and gave me my life back was oxycodone.
To the spinal surgeon- I only got a bottle of 15 endocets (5 oxycodone and 325 acetaminophen) to originally relieve a stomach pain. then i found it worked for sleep so i only took 1 occasionally over a period of like 9 months. i used em sparingly becuz i thought i might not get more. but wud have liked to use every 2nd day or so. so how could u say my doctor did a good thing but not giving me more?

  Ok, let's leave addiction out of the equation. I don't point fingers. What about dependence? Which can be just as bad if not worse than addiction. The main use for Oxycontin is not to help you sleep. It is generally used for mild to severe pain and if it helps you sleep in the process, then that's a plus. Yes not being able to sleep can cause you to have "pain symptoms". Your body is not getting a chance to so called "repair" itself if you are not getting the proper rest. There are several good medications that you could discuss with your Dr. about taking. I am not qualified to mention them,but I am speaking from experience. You do not want to become dependent on narcotics. Then you really won't be able to sleep. Also, one day you may truly need them for the main reason they are prescribed. By then you may have built up a tolerance and then of course...you need a different (possibly higher) type of pain med or maybe none will work for you anymore. It's a vicious cycle and also one I wish I had never had the misfortune of experiencing. Because just when I finally got off of all narcotics, I noticed some of the pain med was actully causing pain. So I was feeling better than I had felt in years. Now, my luck of course... I have been diagnosed with complex regional pain syndrome,(from a recent wrist surgery that was repairing the original wrist surgery) CRPS is one of the most painful things I have ever experienced. However, my tolerance for any medication that could help(until the Dr.'s are done using me as an experimental lab rat because narcotics are generally not a fix for this...torture) is completly ruined. Pain med's may as well be candy as far as my body is concerned. Please trust me, you don't want to live like that. Try talking to your PCP first and see if they have any other suggestions. They may also apperciate the fact that you are trying to avoid narcotics on your own. P.S. By the ay, I can't work either and my walls seem to get in my way too.

Oxycodone and being healthy?
I take Oxycodone everyday for pain management -30mg IR, 3 times daily. I have taken this medication for 3 years now but I am curious as to whether or not I should take any type of supplements or vitamins to maintain a healthy balance in my body. I am a 31 year old male and I suffer from chronic back pain as a result of degenerative disk disease. I do not use acetaminophen, ibuprofen or aspirin products. I do not drink alcohol and do not use any other narcotics or street drugs to include marijuana. I have a good relationship with my doctor and have talked with him before about this issue, but I would like the input of another person who also takes this medication. Take you for your response(s).
I have tried the injections but I didn't respond to them too well. I know that they do help but I like to know that I can get relief right away when it's needed. I would like to find an alternate for managing the pain.

  Have you looked at other pain releiving methods? I am not trying to downplay your pain but have you tried cortizone shots? I had very intense back pain due to DDD and herniated disks and the corizone shots worked great. The first few didn't work but the last one did. As for the question...not sure what the answer is for that.

What is better, Vicodin with a higher amount of Acetaminophen or less?
Is higher the Acetaminophen mg mean more aspirin? I went from 7.5/500mg to 7.5/750mg. And I think the other works better. Which is better? If the Acetaminophen is less is the Hydrocodone more or stronger?

  First of all acetaminophen is not aspirin, it is acetaminophen, which is tylenol. Acetaminophen is added to opiate pain killers because acetaminophen keeps the opiate working longer. In theory, more acetaminophen should keep the pain killer working longer.

  5 tablespoons of Nyquil seems like a heck of a lot.
Yes, that's why they tell you that. Acetaminophen, when used correctly, is great for pain and fever. But in higher than recommended doses, it can cause liver damage. That's why they tell you not to mix medications. In the dose you just described, you were probably close to exceeding the maximum recommended daily dose of it.

Is it safe to mix oxycodone and aspirin?
First of all I would like to say that there isn't any need for negative comments, I have a prescription for the oxycodone. I have a lot of back problems and this morning it was just killing me and I had forgotten my prescription so I took an aspirin. I'm very uneasy about mixing anything. It was around 12 or so in the afternoon when I took just one aspirin and it is now nearly 9pm so I was wondering, would it be safe to take the oxycodone now or should I wait for a longer period of time?

  It should be fairly safe to do so. Aspirin isn't prescription where all the big problems come in, that you have two different things working on the same problem and you can get too much of them in your system. If you are interested in pain free living I have the techniques to pass along to you that can bring you out of that pain world. It did me after 40 years of it. If interested, let me know and they will be yours.

Out of codeine and dextropropoxyphene, which is the strongest pain reliever?
Particularliy in combination with acetaminophen (Paracetamol, Tylenol) as follows:

  TYLENOL WITH CODEINE
500mg acetaminophen and 8mg codeine phosphate

DARVOCET

325mg acetaminophen and 50mg dextropropoxyphene napsylate

Your question is which is stronger- well the Darvocet is.

But the real question should be- what is more effective for pain.

That answer is- It depends on the type of pain and severity.

Darvocet is stronger.

Oxycodone and itching?
I have taken oxycodone for about 5 years for breakthrough severe Restless Legs Syndrome in both my legs and arms. While the dose is moderate (usually less that 20mg of an evening) for treatment of RLS and it has never been an abuse issue for me, suddenly, I have developed head to toe itching. I use straight oxycodone without any aspirin or acetomenaphen, There is no rash, but I itch in some pretty personal areas. Benadryl will exacerbate the RLS. Any suggestions as to what and when to take it
It is straight Oxycodone not Oxycontin. I got 5mg tabs so I could easily take only what I need to control the symptoms. Oxycontin did not work that well and make me dopey. I am surprise about the fuss with Oxycodone. I have never gotten any high from it - just might get a bit sleepy. I avoid the benzodiazopine as they make me dopey and may exacerbate the RLS. Had it since I was a kid. I am a 56 year old retired RN (ER and Infection Control) and it is getting worse every year.

  Oxycontin comes in 20 mg., I'm not sure about Oxycodone, thought it was categorized as 325 mg. Acetaminophen with 5 mg. Oxy, or just 5 mg. Oh well, keep up the Benadryl. Also, I don't understand your itching, I have only seen it after Epidurals and Morphine. I don't think you need any Oxy drug at all. You should take the Beta Blocker Propranolol 20 mg. for the restless leg syndrome. Valium or Diazepam works too, and doctors may not know that, I do.

  The difference between the two is basically in the chemical structure. For all intents and purposes, they are the same. Another version is Oxycodone terephthalate.

As for hydrocodone, it is NOT the same as percocet. Percocet is a compound of oxycodone and acetaminophen. Dosages can vary; the standard is 5mg oxycodone and 500mg acetaminophen. Hydrocodone is found in Vicodin and Lortab, and many other generic versions. It is a weaker painkiller than oxycodone, and the chemical synthesis process is different.

I see you are asking questions about opiods, just curious, why?

  The first number in either of the meds 7.5/750 and 10/660 is the miligrams of hydrocodone in the medication. The second number is the miligrams of acetaminophen. Vicodin and hydrocodone are the same drug, hydrocodone is just the generic name whereas Vicodin is the trade name. The med he changed you to has more of the narcotic, and less of the acetaminophin. As far as needing something stronger goes, that would be up to your doc. There are stronger drugs like oxycontin and hydromorphone, but I would hope you don't need those. Take care.

Fentanyl (Duragesic) 100mcg patch is = how many mg of oxycodone?
I tried to use the narcotic converter but got messed up results. I was recently prescribed Fentanyl 100 mcg duagesic patches from my doctor for cancer. He had me on 15 mg of oxycodone 6 times a day. I told a friend recently about this patch he prescribed me and my friend said woah wtf? Thats a huge jump from what you were taking and the strongest drug in the world.

So my question is:

One is this the strongest drug in the world and as dangerous as everyone says even when taken as prescribed and with 2 yrs opiate resistance.

And my other question is, roughly if you compared this drug to the oxycodone i was taking. how many mg of oxycodone is this thing equivalent to, per hour? I haven't taken it yet I wanted to do my Homework first.

  First of all, Fentanyl is NOT the strongest pain killer in the world. Not by a long shot. While it is very powerful, your not in any serious danger as long as you take it as prescribed. The fentanyl patch delivers 100 MICROgrams every hour. The LD50 (lethal dose of 50% of experimental subjects) in rats is about 3 MILLIgrams per kilogram from sources in my medical books. The patches deliver the drug very slowly. 100 mcg of Fentanyl is approximately equivalent to about 8-10 mg of Morphine which is equivalent to about which is equivalent to somewhere between 4-8 mg Oxycodone an hour. The only real worry is post-use withdrawal. Fentanyl is EXTREMELY commonly used in cancer pain treatment and many times is prescribed with an oral opioid such as oxycodone for breakthrough pain. Don't fear using the fentanyl patch, it's very effective and when used as prescribed it is very safe. Just be careful to fold the sticky sides together when you are done with your patch as there is still active drug in the patch even after 24 hours of use. I wish you the best in your battle with cancer.
