outstanding work as usual rawoody, thanks alot! i have had a time trying to find any good info on the med. it is odd b/c not alot of people seem to be rx'ed to it yet it is so cheap. for one reason or another doctors dont choose it often and i was just curious its potency in relation to other drugs in that class.
I've asked David to update the chart to reflect the most recent additions... note that I added aspirin to show much stronger opoids are in comparison (Thought it might be useful.)
Pentazocine (Talwin) is considered to be 1/3 to 1/6 (ave. 1/4) as potent as morphine.
i thought this was interesting
though i still think that rawoodys is more representative of the majority of the tables i have seen.
also his is much more comprehensive but nevertheless it is interesting.
Keeping this close to the top (or atleast on the first page) will probably help answer many questions. And keep it from getting buried.
We added a permanent link to the menu item Health, Drug Topics.
Rawoody's chart is in the subsection All You've Ever Wanted to Know About ....
Would a 'sticky' post at the top of this forum (Discussion of Prescription and OTC Meds) be better?
I think a 'sticky' would benefit many users. Between the link in the 'Health, Drug Topics' and a sticky post, this thread would be hard to miss.
I believe that some users never venture into the 'Health, Drug Topics' menu.
It would also benefit those looking for this info, but do not use the search feature for whatever reason. And more often those searching for this info, but do not necessarily know the proper search terms they are looking for or need to use.
can i ask a?
how many 30mg codeine would be = to 20mg hydrocodone
