... I would say that the Vicodin would probably be a slight bit stronger. However, it does depend on each individual person. ... (1 replies)
... Sounds like the doc is getting a little squeamish about prescribing the vicodin. If this began about 4 mo. ago, he may be thinking that once 6 mo rolls around he wants her out of there. It doesn't look good for a doc to be prescribing painkillers like that w/o a cancer diagnosis or something equally acceptable. Might want to ask him directly about how willing he is to stick...

... Aranger - do you know how codeine compares to vicodin conversion-wise? (19 replies)

... sed. Second, the chart says right on it "not recommended." So I wouldn't really take the chart in this instance for good for Darvocet. There is no way that 6 Vicodin is the same as 2 Darvocet. ... (19 replies)
... Just a quick chime in here, Darvon can contain aspirin so if your friend has problems in taking ASA it's not an advisable medication. ... (19 replies)
... So if we are right in understanding this, taking two darvon would be equal to her having taken six of her 5mg vic's? ... (19 replies)
... ey worked 10 times better then Darvocet for me when I had horrible headaches when I was pregnant the first time. If they will give her vics again, I'd do that. Vicodin always worked better for me then anything else. Even this Fentynyl I've been taking although I like the convinence of it. ... (19 replies)
... Hey Tina: Just a personal preference, but I would stay with the Codeine over Darvon. It would be great if her doctor would kick loose with some Tylenol #4's for her. The 3's have 30 mg of Codeine and the 4's have 60 mg. She can take two Tylenol #3's every 3-4 hours. I don't know what the instructions say, but from what you've said, I imagine they're pretty conservative. ... (19 replies)
... Originally this round, they gave her Tylenol 3's and she said they didn't help that much, that is why they gave her this supposed "stronger than vicodin" medication Darvon. My next question is, would she be better off sticking with the Codeines? Or with the Darvon? I had a feeling they were giving her the run around. And she has never had to take pain meds before this so... (19 replies)
... That's a mighty generous conversion to 15 mgs of hydro. I would take a 5mg Vicodin over a DarvacetN100 that we are all familiar with. It has the same 100 mg of Darvon which is in the same family as synthetic opiates as methadone, but nowhere as strong. Add 650 of apap and you have Darvacet N 100. ... (19 replies)
... there was talk of making Darvon a nonprescription med. I'm not sure what happened with that, but I wouldn't even bother to fill the script if a doctor gave me one for Darvon or Darvoset. ... (19 replies)
... Hey Tina, Proproxyphene (Darvocet) is much weaker than Hydrocodone (Vicodin). It is usually not even compared on a Equianalgesic chart to compare as it is not recommended for chronic pain. However I found a little info that puts it into perspective. Basically the chart I use shows 130mg-200mg of Proproxyphene the same as 30mg of Hydrocodone. So as you can see it is... (19 replies)
... and her Doc gave her 100mg Darvon and told her this medication is stronger than the vicodin she was taking before. I've never been on this med so I don't know anything about it and couldn't answer when she asked me if this was true or not? ... (19 replies)
... t thing to remember when comparing the effectiveness of different medications is that no two people will react in exactly the same way to any one drug. Although Darvon or Darvocet is considered at the lower end of the spectrum of pain medication, it may be exactly what your particular body reacts most positively to. ... (5 replies)

... Hey there... It is not that I need something to help me get off narcotic pain killers... it is that I cannot take them at all... even on the highest levels allowed of benydryl I itch to the point of madness and end up gouging my skin... I have tried- darvon, darvocette, percidan, percocette, vicodin, tylox, oxycotin, morphine, kadian, methadone, tramadol, loracet... the... (12 replies)
... I am sorry, I posted this a couple of days ago but no one replied so I am trying it again. I am in tremendous pain (L4/5 S-1 fusion with severe neuropathic pain in left leg). I took a nasty fall last Sunday and the pain is only getting worse...so here is my dilemma. Sorry it is long... I have been on a plethora of PM: the usual oral :Vicodin,Lortab, Lorcet, Darvon,...

... I have been on a plethora of PM: the usual oral :Vicodin,Lortab, Lorcet, Darvon, Percocet,Darvocet, Norco, Ultram, and then OxyContin. IV: Dilaudid, morphine, demoral (which has always worked best for me (but not always used at every facility), toradol (YUCK) , the muscle relaxants: soma, flexeril, ativan, valium, baclofen..you get the picture. I have always believed myself... (0 replies)
... That does sound like the one I've heard of that is really strong... I'll have to ask her about it. Doesn't sound like her doctor has much of a plan? Just the same anti-biotic as before...which doesn't make snese since the infection came back three weeks later!!! Which leads me to believe it was probably never gone/gone to begin with. Unfortunately I have experience in... (19 replies)
