In other words, if you have two 5/325 Hydrocodone, that would equal about the same effects as a 512(5mg/325)Oxycodone. If you have any other questions regarding either of these two drugs, please PM me, I'd be glad to help.
Oxycodone is synthesized from Thebaine, codeine isn't. Codeine is found in Poppys, Oxycodone isn't. You really shouldn't post information you know NOTHING about, it's not safe.
That is the worst information I have read on this forum, ever. Oxycodone is codeine based? Haha, wow. Learn some things before you attempt at answering a post, it's not safe to post false information.
Morphine AND Codeine are both derived from poppys. Oxycodone is synthesized from Thebaine. Where do you get your information? How did the "pharmacists" you know ever pass the PCAT? LOL.
Hydrocodone and Oxycodone are not similar, in strength, or chemically.
Codeine and Oxycodone are so different from each other it's amazing that someone is claiming that Oxycodone is Codeine based. Haha. This is honestly the most false information I have seen on this forum in my entire time here.
