What is the difference between Darvocet and Lortab, Percocet?

This answer was rated:

What is the difference between Darvocet and Lortab, Percocet? I want to understand the differences between all the pain medication, I am tired of guessing which meds work the best on my chronic pain. I currently have a pain pump inserted in my abdomen and, in that I have Dilauded. I am not sure exactly what that is and, the strength or what catagory of narcotic that is. I also have Fentynal Patches that get changed every other day. So it is very important for me to understand these types of medications and what is stronger than the other. Can you catarize these and help me to understand. Thank You So Much< Donna
Pain killers are basically of two types - narcotic and NSAIDs
NSAIDs include tylenol, naproxen, ibuprofen, voveran etc.
Narcotics include morphine, oxycodone etc.
Darvocet = Propoxyphene and Acetaminophen
Lortab = Hydrocodone and Acetaminophen
Percocet = Oxycodone and Acetaminophen.
Dilaudid = Hydromorphone.
Out of the above pain medicines Percocet and Dilaudid are stronger than Darvocet and Lortab.
