Hi everyone! Just returned from my home town to watch a pirate game, and visit family.

My question is, my doc changed me to lortab 10's after spending a year on 7.5/325. I was so glad she suggested it, since I hae been in horrible pain after work.

Ok, this is weird, I think the 7.5mg worked better. The 10/325 have a v on them and are yellow. How can I think that. I am ready to ask for the lower dose on the next visit.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Thanks, and have a fab day


  • Oxycodone is stronger than hydrocodone. Google a opioid Narcotic calculator. Lortab are not as strong as Percocet 7.5. They are two different drugs so that's why. He gave you a lower dose according to the scale. Sometimes Drs switch meds in case you become tolerant to one. He may need to adjust this when he reviews your meds. Best wishes. Charry
