The difference with Oxynorm is that it can also be bought in liquid form and in the hospitals we can also get it in ampoules for injection. All very strong drugs as it is synthetic Morphine.

    What I meant by stronger was that it's a higher dose. Endone is 5mg and oxynorm starts at 10mg my DH has been on opiates for 11.5 years. You tend to learn a lot about them in that time.

    DH used to get authority scripts for a months supply. It worked out cheaper for us because of his pension card but I'm not sure if you'd have to pay full price for both packs? Also on your current care plan I'm not sure if the dr would allow it.

    I stand corrected on that one. It's always just been prescribed as endone at that dose.

    might just be that your dr knew your dh needed a higher dose so easier to take only 1 capsule and not go through them as quickly. Most times people are on the higher doses so it does make sense to reduce the amount of tablets you take.

    My brother suicided while he was under psychiatric care. All his psych said later was "I didn't realise he was serious".

    That's the crappy state of mental health care in this country.

    I do wonder how arguing about the available dosages of different drugs is helpful to the OP. It all seems a bit tedious and inappropriate given the origins of the thread.

    But maybe that's just me.

    Frenchie, I have no practical advice. I have never been in your situation or known anyone who has been. I really do hope that you come through this all relatively unscathed. xx Good luck.

    He's had endone before but was quickly upped to the oxynorm 10s. You talk to most gps about 5mg quick release oxycodone and they will say endone so I guess it's just more common. Could have sworn thay I was reading something a few years back and the norms started at 10mg though.

    How many endone do you usually take at a time Ffrenchie? If your gp knows you're take more than one it would make sense to give you the higher dose and that will save you money. Unfortunately there are no generic versions of the oxycodone range but maybe you could compare the prices at the chemists around town to see if you can get it cheaper?
