Percodan vs. Percocet vs. Norco
Can someone help me with the comparison of these meds, My brother just had ACL replacement surgery and has been taking 2 10mg every 4 hours. Its not working for him very well. He took this amount for about 8 months prior to this sugery. He also had an orthroscopic surgery on this same knee 6 months ago where they found nothing wrong. The new MD went in and it was obvious to him that the ACL was toast.
Anyway, his surgeon wants to switch his meds from Norco to perocdan or percocet (not sure of which one). Can someone explain to me the differences in stregths. The MD is opposed to stepping up to a LA med like Oxtcontin.
EDIT-- Just spoke with my brother and he got Oxycodone 10/325. What is that and is it any different that Norco 10/325??
