    Hi all,
    I was prescribed a month of Endocet 10mg/325 before I got to the pain clinic. When I went to the clinic, they prescribed me Lorcet 10/650.

    I really think the endocet worked better. Do you think when I go back to the clinic I could suggest they change me to the endocet. I would imagine the 2 are interchangeable.

    Many thanks to you.

    It wouldn't hurt to ask the doc about the med which works better for you.

    I don't know about them being interchangeable or not, though.

    The Lorcet is hydrocodone; the Endocet (generic for Percocet) is oxycodone. Both have Tylenol included in them.

    Just explain that you have tried both, and the Endocet seemed to work better for you.

    Both are probably equally habit-forming ... or acquiring a dependence upon them. But, what are we to do when we are in terrible pain?????
