Hydrocodone vs Oxycodone which is stronger? ?

Question by Bob Job: Hydrocodone vs Oxycodone which is stronger? ?
I have been perscribed with both Hydrocodone and Oxycodone for TMJ and pain reasons. To me a 5mg Vicodin (Hydro) is about the same as a 5mg Percoset (Oxycodone). I have looked up the equivilancys and it seems like Oxycodone is a little bit stronger but I dont know for sure. I have gotten answers from 5mg oxy = 5mg hydro to oxycodone is twice as strong as hydro.

They are different chemicals and have slightly different effects I guess but is there an equivilancy chart somewhere.

Both hydro and oxy are sold by people that I know, with Vicodin they are all around the same price even if its a 5mg, 7.5mg, or 10mg. Percs go for more depending on the miligram, and is usually more pricey. If 1mg hydro = 1mg oxycodone then why dont people buy hydros if they can get the 10mg for the same price as a 5mg percoset?

Anyways thanks I dont know if there is any answer but I have searched for this alot and am planning on becoming a Pharmasist so I know alot about these things. If you dont know the answer or dont have anything to say that will help me please dont respond but if you do that would be awesome.

Of course, what if you’re comparing Hydrocodone 7.5 to oxycodone 5? It’s hard to say!

Oxycodone is CII, and hydrocodone is CIII (CI is contraband).

(You’re not taking both, are you?!?! Is that safe?)

    Oxycodone is a schedule II

    Hydrocodone is schedule III

    Oxycodone is suppose to be stronger.
