    So I am laying here, in intense pain from having a torn abdominal muscle fixed today. Doc has got me all perc'd up. They work pretty well, but is there anything better in that class? He's obviously not going to give oxycon but anything else I should ask for?

    For OTC, I found Aleve and Motrin to work best for me.

    as an about-to-be-licensed pharmacy student... agree with motrin or aleve... one may work better for you than the other. by the way if going for motrin, you can take up to 600mg (3 tablets) 4 times daily. or 800mg 3 times daily.

    What about Lortab? Any real difference from Percoset?

    lortab is less potent, so at the same milligram strength of hydrocodone to oxycodone, perc is stronger

    Why would he give you anything you ask for but not oxycontin?

    After my Achilles surgery, I found that Lortab worked better than percocet.

    My Doc always recommends Two Motrin + Two Tylenol.

    As I understand it, oxy is pretty major league stuff. I am in a lot of pain but should be better in a day or two. I guess it's pretty much perc vs lortab

    Percocet and Oxycontin both the same drug: Oxycodone.

    Hm, so you don't end up pulling a Heath Ledger, you might want to read more.
