Yes, Methadone is significantly stronger than Vicodin, almost as much as ten times as strong. If you’re having any concerns about your RX, you can always call a doctor or a pharmacist. ! Any comments?

    These were even better than Vicodin. Now I’m all out and starting to have withdrawals from those. I was taking the methadone for 10 – 14 days, and the Vicodin

    hi there,sorry to hear that you are in pain. i too experience chronic pain due to a bladder condition called interstitial cystitis. anyhow, back to your question, as far as vicodin being stronger than oxycodone, the answer is absolutely not! vicodin is an opiate-based narcotic pain reliever but not nearly as potent as oxycodone. if you are not going to a pain management clinic/doctor, i would suggest you as for a referral to one as soon as you can. you cant just book an appointment to these clinics, they need you to be referred to them by your regular family doctor or whichever specialist you happen to go to. basically they need that referral to know the nature of your problem and why it is that you are having chronic pain. they also need to hear specifically from your dr that you are not a drug-seeker because since they specialize in pain management/medication, obviously drug-seekers flood their offices claiming various painful ailments to get drugs. anyhow, when you go to a pain management dr, he/she thoroughly examines you to find out the root of your pain and works with you to find a pain management routine specifically suited for you and your pain. this routine will most likely be made up of physical therapy, injections of different medications on the affected area, possibly also counseling to deal with the emotional aspect of dealing with daily, chronic pain and of course, pain medications. he/she will be better suited to prescribe medications that will help to minimize your pain as much as possible. one thing you have to realize, and i know this is very unfair, and that is that although you wish that you were pain-free and that its probably your goal to be pain-free, pain management DOESNT make you completely pain-free. when a patient suffers from chronic, severe pain, they basically have to learn to MANAGE it and to be as comfortable as possible but to say that you will be 100% pain-free will be unrealistic and not possible. so please keep that in mind. i think a lot of people get into emotional AND physical trouble (addiction to pain meds) when they think they should be pain-free and start taking too much medication to get there. so, basically, get a referral to a pain management clinic/dr, use all the resources that they provide not just the medication aspect and keep a realistic view of pain management so that you dont feel depressed or end up becoming addicted to pain medications.best of luck to you!!!
