oxycodone is a lot different. the chemical compund is how much morphine (poppy) is mixed with tylenol. the stronger the codone part (ie:oxycodone) the better the effects. ie: tylonol 3, darvocet, percocet, norco, oxycodone.... I did well on oxycodone until i maxed on my tolerance level on it. it made me sleepy at first but after i was used to it, i was fine. you should have a much better result. its a lot better with breakthrough pain, i take it at regular intervals- the pamphlet said do not wait until you are in pain as you would not have the same effect or need more to cut the pain. i took it religously every 4-5 hours. there is a website i like to visit called askapatient.com these are real reviews on meds people have been on..... there are some abusers on there- that shocked me- but the real pain people rip into them. anyhow, i like to look there when i get a new med to see what side effects other people had on it. my main issue was severe constipation (so badly i would pass a lot of blood) and there was nothing else wrong, had a colonoscopy. anyhow, i take senokot (the overnight formula specifically) but I take 3 a day versus the 2, and it works well. drink lots of water/fluids. its worth the constipation.
