Medication Question

I moved from the US to Canada. My prescription of Lortab ran out. They told me that Lortab is not available here so they gave me 100 TAB Supeudol 5mg - Oxycodone HCI 5mg. I took percocets before and they made me a little sick. Are these the same?
I wanted to also mention that I had a wonderful experience with both the emergency room and the pharmacy after. We live in a very remote area where doctor access is very limited so the emergency room is our only option. My prescriptions were all free (thanks to Canada and my employer). So great after paying at $60 a month for just my Celebrex.


  • I wonder why they don't have hydrocodone in Canada. I didn't know that. Oxycodone is the main ingredient in percocet. Not sure what that other medication is. I hope it works for you!

  • I actually like it better. The Percocet always made me a little sick. And I was worried when my pill of choice was not available. Very happy with the change. Though I was wondering if it was all in my head or if if really is different.
