Which Is Stronger Lortab 7.5 500 Or Percocet 5mg-325mg

Which is stronger, lortab 7.5 500 or percocet 5mg-325mg?

Answer

Percocet is a combination of oxycodone and acetaminophen while Lortab is a combination of hydrocodone and acetaminophen.   Technically oxycodone is a little stronger than hydrocodone, which would make the Percocet stronger.   But people respond differently; some do better with hydrocodone and others do better with oxycodone.

In either case, these are strong medications, which means you should be cautious with them. Here are some articles that help outline the dangers of opioids:
