Oxycodone is WAY stronger than codeine.....if you've never taken Oxycodone before and are not "tolerant" to it, DON'T take the oxy. Most patients start at 5mg Oxy and then work up from there. The max my employer will RX is 30mg of Oxy..... period. I hope you are having someone responsible drive you to and from you appointment for the ink because whichever meds you decide to take will cause impaired abilities. C-RN
The question asked above "Which is stronger 5mg of Oxycodone or 60mg of Codeine and is it safe to take them together?" was never exactly answered !! People mostly just created a new tread about getting tattoo's !!???? I do know that Dilaudid(Synthetic Heroin) has an 8 to 1 ratio to Morphine,.. That is,.. 1mg of Dilaudid is equal to 8mg of Morphine. 80mg of Oxycodone is stronger and longer lasting than Morphine. Oxycodone is also close to Heroin, with the exception being,.. Oxycodone doesn't make you drowsy compared to Morphine or Heroin. And I do know this, Codeine is on the bottom end of the painkiller spectrum and Oxycodone is on the top end. Kinda like comparing Beer to 150% Proof Rum,..!!! And as for Percocets I've always compared them to about 3-4 Tylenol 3's !!! So by that guesstimate,.. 5mg of Oxycodone is stronger than 60mg of Codeine (Or 2 Tylenol 3's) But that's just my opinion and as a few people have stated , everybody has different tolerances, weakness, or possible allergies to consider.!!
codeine is cool, i prefer the syrup in some sprite, but thats just to add to the high i get from the 300mg of oxycodone i take on a daily basis. its really unfortunate that prescription pills cause so much agony (drained bank accounts, withdrawls ect.) its such a good feeling. it would be really nice if the usa would figure it out like some european countrys, and just start giving opiate addicts the drugs that they want, because in the countries that they started doing that in they have seen MASSIVE decreases in the felonies and other crimes that relate to people trying to get money for their fix. drug dealers that literally only sell to get their own for a better price, women who have turned to prostitution to support a habit, people who rob pharmacies for pills, people who rob or mug other people to get money to get pills, and pretty much all the other illegal activities that people do to get money to get high have all but stopped in the places where they have opened heroine clinics. its all "lab quality" and controlled by the states, they supply clean needles and cookers, which has stopped the spread of HIV and hepatitis, they supply a place for people to do their shots, so they arent going to jail for possesion, and the people are under the supervision of a doctor when they do it so there is no deaths from overdoses. not to mention, they give it out for free!! its impossible to stop people from doing drugs. its that simple. so the government might as well do the next best thing, and stop all the negative effects on communities and families. i just wish american politicians would be progressive enough to even consider these types of things, because the outcome would be amazing. less people flooding the jails for drug related offenses. fewer people ing up their families finances and kids lives, fewer drug dealers making money off the poorest people in the country, fewer diseases being spread by drug users, and fewer mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters and children dying from overdoses in dope houses. i cant see one problem with this type of system. can you guys?
