It amazes me how little people know about what they speak of. Let's get a bunch of things straight. Vicodin, Norco, and Lortab are all brand names of hydrocodone. Percocet, Endocet, OxyContin, Roxicodone, are all brand names for oxycodone based drugs. Generally, oxycodone is said to be stronger than hydrocodone. Also oxycodone Is available in single-medicine formulas such as OxyContin and available with Acetominophen as found in Percocet. Hydrocodone is not available as a single medicine formula, it is always with Acetominophen. That will be changing when the new drug, Zohydro is released which will be the first hydrocodone only pill. Now, when it comes to the best pill for pain I would have to say Opana ER (oxymorphone) is the best. Unfortunately the formula has been changed to one similar to what purdue did with the "OPs". The new formula Opana cannot be shaved or crushed. Luckily Endo has screwed us and done us a favor at the same time.
A search of the FDA Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS) database from November 1997 to May 2015, identified 178 . cases of apparently healthy patients who took an oral fluoroquinolone to treat ABS, ABECB, or uncomplicated UTIs and developed disabling and potentially irreversible adverse reactions that appeared as a constellation of symptoms. Because it was difficult to clearly ascertain whether the report was for treatment of two of these indications, ABECB or uncomplicated UTI, the search was broadened to include the indications “bronchitis” and “urinary tract infections” in addition to ABS, ABECB, and uncomplicated UTI. Only patients who reported adverse reactions lasting longer than a month and involving two or more body systems (., musculoskeletal, peripheral nervous system, neuropsychiatric, senses, cardiovascular, and skin) were included in the evaluation. The majority of the adverse reactions primarily affected the musculoskeletal system, peripheral nervous system, and central nervous system.
