i had surgery weds and was given oxycodone 5/325.I ran out and called for a refill, This time I was given endocet 10/325.I was wondering if they gave me a stronger dose or are they equivalent?
No they are not equal in strength. The 10mg are twice as strong as the 5mg. They both only have 325mg acetaminophen (tylenol) which is bad for your liver. Since 325mg acetaminophen is the lowest amount of tylenol they put in these types of pills, this is also a good thing. But yes, you got the dosage upped, the endocet 10/325's are twice as strong as the oxycodone 5/325's.
I hope I could help.
Endocet is oxycodone and acetaminophen. So you got a higher dose. You went from 5mg of oxycodone and 325 of acetaminophen to 10mg of oxycodone and 325 of acetaminophen.
