Thumbs up Oxycodone or Hydrocone?

Which is more effective for pain relief after CMC Arthroplasty? Oxycodone 10/325 or Hydrocodeine 7.5/325?

It really depends on you. Hydrocodone does zero for me painwise, and never has. Oxycodone on the other hand consistently works pretty well for me.

Re: Oxycodone or Hydrocone?

Most pain management doctors now are going by the cdc's morphine equivalent recommendation when prescribing medications, and so the dose and frequency changes depending on which is prescribed. Each person has different tolerances to medications and you will need to work with your doctor to find what works best for you. Oxycodone is a synthetic opioid and is "by the book" stronger than hydrocodone.

Re: Oxycodone or Hydrocone?

Oxycodone didn't work for me, whereas Hydrocodone (Norco) 10/320 works great. I think it depends on the person.

Re: Oxycodone or Hydrocone?

Hi, oxycodone is stronger than hydrocodone, I think you would be fine with oxycodone 5, for the first few days then hydro 5 til you can switch to just Tylenol. Again it all depends on your pain tolerance and also how your body reacts to the medicine. Some people can't handle oxy, cuz it makes them nauseated especially at higher doses. Talk to your dr about meds to take in case you have stomach issues. Hope your recovery is quick and smooth

Re: Oxycodone or Hydrocone?

I appreciate your response. Unfortunately, I have limited pain management options due to having stage 3 kidney disease. My doctor is allowing me to use Hydrocodone I still have on hand from past carpal tunnel pain relief, when I run out of the oxycodone, as long as I follow his specific precautionary advise. Thank you for the well wishes as I begin what I've heard is a long journey to recovery.

Re: Oxycodone or Hydrocone?

Didn't know about your kidneys. Yea you have to watch what you take, the hydro 7.5 should be enough after oxycodone. I know what you mean about looong recovery, I'm going through my own right now. 3 weeks ago had left ankle ligament reconstruction, Achilles lengthening and subtalar fusion. Took oxycodone5/325 for a lil over a week, then switched to hydrocodone till last night, now I take Tylenol arthritis.
