Is propox-n apap stronger than hydrocodone?

No, you have the generic form of Darvocet N 100 and it is weaker than the gerneric Vicodin that you listed.
Be careful though, the Darvocet may work for you pain ... don't just jump to the stronger of the 2.

Good luck!

Which is stronger hydrocodone 7.5/500mg or propoxyphene-n 100 w/apap 650 tab or tramadol/apap 37.5mg/325mg?

This question is confusing because they are both used to alleviate pain but in different way's hydrocodone is a narcotic and gives you the feeling of walking on clouds and takes your pain away, now tramadol is a nerve blocker which stops the nerves from recognizing and sending signals to your brain saying your in pain, also it is not listed as a narcotic, which means you can drive while using it, the only kicker to using tramadol is it takes about a week to get into your system to get the full affect !

Does The Tylenol In Vicodin Make The Hydrocodone Stronger?

Does it make the effects better or something? Or is is just so you dont take too many?

Also when you cut A 10mg Pill in half, would that be EXACTLY 5mg of hydrocodone? Im confussed since theres two drugs in one, like is each side equal?

The "Tylenol" (aka acetaminophen or APAP) in Vicodin is there for a couple of reasons. As you surmised, it gives the Hydrocodone component a an assist in terms of pain management and it is there to limit the amount of the Hydrocodone component that is ingested so as to reduce the addiction liability. Too much APAP at one time will destroy your liver and result in death.

In terms of cutting a pill in half, you would receive half of the dose (for all practical purposes). Most prompt-release, tableted dosage forms have their components distributed equally through out the tablet. This property is known as content uniformity.

Which of these Hydrocodone meds are stronger?

My mom has two different kinds, and she's wondering if one of them is stronger than the other. One says C-111 Hydrocodone 10 mg/Acet 325 mg and the other says Hydrocodone/APAP 5/500.

The hydrocodone 10/325 contains more of the narcotic pain reliever and is stronger than the 5/500 pills. The 10/325 pills have a max dose of 12 per 24 hours and the 5/500 have a max dose of 8 pills per 24 hours. If she is in extreme pain, the 10/325 are going to be stronger, and likely more effective.

Is 10mg Of Oxycodone stronger than 15mg Of Hydrocodone, or is it the same?

I usually take 15mg of hydrocodone for my pain, but now I got switched to percocet 10mg. Is that the same thing?

Both drugs are quite effective to antagonize pain....
Oxycodone is contained in percocet, and Hydrocodone, is the hydroxy derivative of oxycodone,,,,
since the difference in action is minimal, you will have 1/3rd les analgesic potency, however, that means that your doctor considers, that you need less analgesics....
That wont kill you, however, if you feel that your pain does not subside, with the new analgesic or dose, tell to your doctor what is happening....It is wise then (if that is the case) to change the type of analgesic for another that is NOT synthetic opioid derivative, (lisine clonixinate, propionic acid derivatives, indomethacine etc), in order to avoid:
1.- Tolerance (needing twice or more the normal dose in order to achieve the same effect)
2.- Addiction....in this case, the analgesia is not important anymore, nor the pain, but the elating and euphoric producing effect of the medication proper.....

It is wise to follow your doctors advice in the meantime...

What kind of pain is propoxy-n/apap usually used for?

what does it treat! any specific pains or parts of the body! do u have to have a mild or strong pain! i wanna knw why my mom would have dem ???

This combination medication is used to treat mild to moderate pain. Propoxyphene-n/apap or Darvocet-N is a narcotic pain reliever (opiate-type), meaning if abused this drug can be addictive and lead to many dependency problems. It isn't used really for specific types of pain just pain problems in general, so the only way to find out what they are being used for would be to ask your mom or her doctor and he might not even tell you. This is a drug that acts on certain centers in the brain to give you pain relief. Acetaminophen (Tylenol) would be a common example of a non-narcotic pain reliever.

How should I take hydrocodone for it to be stronger?

I have 2 white oval Waston 385 pills, i ate around 12 p. and now its 5:35 a.

the longer you wait not eating the stronger it will be and if you take some promethazine it will stop you from itching and make it a lil stronger. also alcohol makes the effects stronger.

Acetaminophen hydrocodone bitartrate stronger than Cyclobenzaprine?

which is stronger is it safe to take them together?

Cyclobenzaprine is a muscle relaxant, Vicodin (acetaminophen hydrocodone bitartrate) is a pain killer. both these drugs do two different things, and whether or not you can take them together depends on your heals. I suggest you speak with the doctor who prescribed these to you prior to combining them.
